Hypnosis Week

There are many fantasies associated with hypnosis. Being fully absorbed, control, staged con, magic, manipulation, a deep insight into the soul, the ability to simply do or feel something otherwise difficult, dream journeys and adventures in the mind, relaxation, switching off. These are just some of the associations with hypnosis and trance states.

 

During this week you can deal with hypnosis and trance as you wish. Whether in workshops, private or at public sessions, there is a lot of knowledge that is exchanged. Joint (group) exercises enable further experiences or you engage in your own way with the subject.

Hypnosis sessions always take place according to your individual agreement and consent, e.g. practice sessions at workshops, together in the green salon, spontaneous sessions, group sessions for everyone who is interested in front of the fireplace, hypnosis session with sensory deprivation/bondage…. There are no limits to your imagination and your wishes. So be careful 😉 After dinner we often gather in the hall around the fireplace and hypnosis or BDSM sessions can take place alongside conversations.

If this appeals to you, whether as a couple or single, whether as a hypnotist, hypnotee or switch, then our hypnosis week from Monday 08.05. – until Sunday 14.05.2023 in the KuK maybe something for you. Whether you already have a lot of experience or just some encounters with hypnosis, the week is for everyone, regardless of the level of experience on the topic.

Saturday nights often have impromptu shows or special sessions on stage. Sunday is departure day to let the week end slowly.

 

Every (hypnosis) session is to be consensual FIRST

It doesn’t matter whether you practice SSC (safe sane consensual) or RACK (risk aware consensual kink). In all interactions, as always, first get the clear and distinct agreement of your counterpart and clarify what you want/need.

The given agreement should always be: Free, based on relevant information, reflected, specific and your project should be team-oriented and mutually aligned towards each other needs and well-being.

 

Workshops are interactive/free discussions/demos/exercises with some moderation.

Do you want to share your knowledge about hypnosis or BDSM or show something yourself? Write to us in advance. But you are also welcome to spontaneously do a small demo with interested people on site and share knowledge. KuK is a house where you can freely articulate your wishes and where we try to make it easy to say no. In the Google Doc you can share your interests and what you are looking for, what you are offering and what you are curious about.

 

A few common beliefs about hypnosis and trance:

Trance state: Anyone who has already dealt with hypnosis knows that trance states are something natural that one can also, and often more deeply, achieve either through self-hypnosis or with the help of someone else. You reach trance by immersing yourself in something (reading, watching a video, cycling, driving a car, sex, sports, meditation, but also in trauma, thought spirals and incessive thinking – so-called problem trances). In the hypnosis week we learn to avoid the ladder and focus on pleasure trances and control/submission trances.

Hypnosis and Sleep: Hypnosis/trance differs from sleep in that the brain is very active in some areas and much less than usual in others, and unlike in sleep, consciousness remains present. Sometimes you can also fall asleep in a trance, this often differs from posture and facial expressions and then you just sleep. Every trance therefore ends naturally or through an interruption, which is why one “wakes up” again after every trance.

Loss of will: We know from studies and legal opinions that people in hypnosis do not lose their will unless they want to. Psychologists and neurologists are also of the prevailing opinion that people in a trance cannot be manipulated any more than they can without a trance. You can even use the increased willingness to learn to strengthen your own self-efficacy, empowerment and self-reliance. You can, for example, consciously and unconsciously strengthen dominance or self-confidence, self-love and compassion.
