Welcome to the NGH Convention Community -- Please Post Your Photo in Your Profile!

When we began this NING site a few years ago, we did so with the goal of building a community within the membership of the National Guild of Hypnotists. One of our objectives was to grow and expand all NGH member’s knowledge of the tools and techniques of social media networking, while another goal was to strengthen interaction among members in the months and weeks leading up to each year’s annual National Guild of Hypnotists Convention and Educational Conference.


With so many sharing members here on The Hypnotists Convention NING site, and a year-round buzz of interaction, you have to think that this site is filling an important need for NGH members. Not only do you come here to share and exchange in the time leading up to the NGH Convention, but you post news, photos, videos, and comments throughout the year. You are clearly the heartbeat of the National Guild of Hypnotists and this is your community.


That’s why there is no better group than you to carry out the directive of the 2015 NGH Convention theme: A Tradition of Excellence.


You keep the National Guild of Hypnotists vibrant and growing. You are eager and impassioned to grow both personally and professionally. And as you continue to utilize this internal community site, don’t forget to share with the world on the public website for the NGH Convention at:

Mesmerism, also known as Animal Magnetism was the forerunner of modern hypnosis. It was a popular, though controversial, “alternative healing” treatment from the 1780s onward throughout Europe. Yet it wasn’t until 1837 that it made its American debut in Providence, Rhode Island.
