From the Author

My approach to hypnotherapy is transpersonal. I believe that the client's goal, whether or not she realizes it consciously, is to be whole and at peace with herself all the time. Attaining this wholeness and peace is my intention working with clients and students.

In my view, this intention must be contemplated by prospective hypnotherapists with passion, curiosity, and perseverance. Their success with clients will be directly proportionate to how deeply they cultivate this contemplation and make it relevant to their own secret inner life.

To be passionate and curious, contemplation of this sort must be free of any standard of success. You must be free of fear or hope that you will or will not be successful.You must do such contemplation purely for the sake of learning…learning for its own sake...discovering that even so-called success or failure is merely a label for a certain kind of learning whose fundamental value lies beyond these conditioned judgments. Learning is a whole body/being process.

To be fully engaged in the process of learning is to be fully alive, moment by moment. To experience being fully alive is the ultimate goal of this course—to be awake, free from all trances of the egoic mind.

Format: Paperback
What is True Magic? Sogyal Rinpoche says the Tibetan mystic, Terton Sogyal, was not really impressed by someone who could turn the floor into the ceiling or fire into water. A real miracle happens, he said, if someone can liberate just one negative emotion. Most of us would be happy to liberate just one negative emotion for ourselves, and, if we are in one of the many helping professions, for others. Jack Elias' book, Finding True Magic, makes that kind of miracle accessible for professionals and for those seeking personal growth. True Magic, in Elias' perspective, can be found in the basic goodness of each individual. Grounded in uncompromising and unsentimental faith in innate basic goodness, he assembles a wealth of practical techniques that make the magic of healing profoundly inspiring and understandable. He makes simple observations and then explains how they transform and empower the therapeutic process and personal growth. Finding True Magic is a resource for therapists, a guide for individuals, and the manual for a comprehensive hypnotherapy training course. Elias writes in the genre of Daniel Goleman, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Mark Epstein: brilliant, passionate thinkers with a genius for interpreting and applying Eastern thought for the benefit of Westerners in the helping professions and those seeking to bring illumination to the dilemmas of their personal lives. He draws upon the experience of continuous study during his entire adult life with some of the major teachers of Eastern philosophy who have come to the West. These teachings have been deepened and integrated by his own meditation practice and in 10 years as a counselor, hypnotherapist and teacher. A radical key to Elias' therapy is his "de-hypnosis" approach.Read more ›

29 of 29 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on May 27, 1998
Format: Paperback
More than an excellent explanation of hypnotherapy and NLP techniques, Finding True Magic is an invaluable manual for truly living an awake and ecstatic life, a guide to achieving moment by moment magic throughout one's life.
Jack Elias' therapeutic approach goes far beyond the more superficial levels of popular hypnosis, by dealing with deeper core issues and emphasizing the healing of each person as a whole.
His work is based on the sometimes startling realization that we already walk around in trance, hypnotized by our beliefs and our habitual ways of thinking. Reading this book initiates a mystical process that involves waking up from our limiting thoughts, experiencing the joy, peace, and purity that comprise our inherent magical state, and opening to new choices and new resources in order to honor and respect ourselves and others.
The simple yet profound techniques and ideas found in this book lead to transformations that are indeed truly magical. Finding True Magic is a gift to all humanity.

34 of 35 people found the following review helpful By Gregory McHugh on September 1, 2001
Format: Paperback
No other author (that I have read or studied) in this field brings such passion and consciousness to the how to of hypnotherapy as Jack Elias. When I first started with this manual of technique I was pushed back a little by his "process" and then shortly realized that he was literally attempting to move me to an altered state while writing of his purposes and concepts. I could feel the compression of wisdom and mind wrenching and concept blowing sentences that brought whole realms of my own belief systems to the fore to be examined in an instant. Often, I would have to read and reread whole paragraphs and then put the book down and breathe deeply as minirealizations of the Truth of Elias's monologue seeped in. I found my self celebrating "eurekas" often.
Elias teaches that "exploring attaining . . .wholeness and inner peace" is an integral part of his manual for practitioners because he believes that success with clients is directly related to the depth and experience of the therapist's own contemplation and conscious inner life.
So the process of the practitioner becoming more "awake", if you will, is easily woven into the teaching and training process of this manual. Detailed scripts are integrated into the discussions of various areas. Elias breaks the training in the manual into phases. First is a basic introduction to hypnosis and the nature of the egoic mind. Second is an illumination of Regression/Past Life Therapy with discussion on accessing the Higher Self or True Self, coverage of the Vedic traditions of India and its view of Shakti and the power of illusion in an interplay of the psyche that Elias calls "egoic minding" and the awakening from egoic trance.

14 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Steve Dykstra on September 19, 1999
Format: Paperback
We found this a delightful book for several reasons. First,the text is very succinctly written, with almost an outline format in many sections to aid in reader's comprehension. Secondly, the author blends a mixture of Eastern & Western philosophical perspectives that promote a growing realization that healing can be quicker, less expensive, and more personal than a more traditional medical system has projected. Thirdly, we also feel that reading Jack's book makes us better prepared to work with a wider variety of clientele, which certainly will be to their and our benefit. Fourth, there is a wide breadth of topics covered here - lots of information requiring more than one reading, leading to the desire to discuss same with others in discussion groups if not attend a formal training program with Mr. Elias. Finding True Magic brings together many perspectives into a coherent and usable approach. It aims to find a person's healing, not just fix one's symptoms.
