To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived--this is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Preface to UnHypnosis

 “In the midst of winter, I discovered within myself an invincible summer.”

-Albert Camus

I've reinvented myself more times than you can imagine, and life keeps getting better. I've been a physician, pilot, actor, musician, magician, trainer, author and hypnotist. I judge each new project on the following two criteria. First, will it help me touch the lives of others in a positive and constructive way? Second, will it be fun? I love to learn new skills that require practice and concentration, and I love to teach others about what I'm learning.

One of my favorite lessons to share is that we are not trapped by our circumstances in life. We aren't defined by job, family, current finances, or education. Whatever we are doing can be changed, and we can start!

Of course, it takes courage and vision: courage to step out past the familiar and risk failure, ridicule, and fear; vision to be able to first see ourselves in new circumstances of our own creation. Most of us have stopped using our God-given right to dream, to fantasize, to imagine. We stop before we start, and we rob ourselves of the wonder and awe of life's adventure. Imagine if we dared to dream and take action on our dreams!

My hypnosis and magic shows are an entertaining reminder of what's possible when the source of our inspiration is set free. The source is within each of us, but we trap it behind our limiting beliefs. In my shows, I offer people a chance to come out from behind those beliefs: to play, to imagine, and to reclaim their childlike lightness through laughter, fun and astonishment.

In essence, what I’m offering is freedom. The real life magic that takes place on my stage is more about unhypnosis than hypnosis, waking people up rather than putting them to sleep. It’s about using the hypnotic state to communicate with the subconscious mind, coaxing it out of its trance, out of its limiting beliefs. Freed of those beliefs, people are filled with real happiness. In essence, I invite people to shed their hypnotic programming and to come out and play.

In the following pages, I’m going to attempt to awaken within you that sense of wonder and possibility and to provide you with tools for making your dreams into reality.


When you read UnHypnosis, you'll learn:

  • How to start over from wherever you are and recreate your ideal life.

  • How to spot and reverse your hypnotic programming in jobs and relationships.

  • How to set and achieve exciting goals.

  • How to have more fun while making your dreams come true.

  • How to clarify your thinking and discover your true purpose...leading to greater energy.

  • How to become more calm, relaxed, and confident.

  • How to relate to the people in your life to guarantee enthusiastic support and cooperation.

  • How to deal with difficult people.

  • How to integrate your spiritual path into your day-to-day life to create more success and happiness.

began as an idea; that we're all hypnotized and that our hypnotic programming keeps us from achieving what we want in life. In fact, sometimes our programming is so thorough that we don't even know what we want.

I hit on this idea when I was performing my hypnosis show (see and realized that people on stage didn't believe that they were hypnotized, yet they continued to act in irrational, self-defeating ways, based on my suggestions. 

I thought, "What if we're all hypnotized like the people on stage and, like them, don't know it?" If that were the case, we'd have to first wake up from that state before we could live the lives we're meant to live.

Using my knowledge of personal growth, success philosophy, psychology, and spirituality, I constructed a systematic approach for discovering our own hypnotic programming and for reversing its effects. I call it the five layers of consciousness.

Much of the philosophy and many of the tools are derived from the work of motivators like Anthony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield, and Brian Tracy, blended with the spiritual teachings of masters like Ram Dass, Pema Chodron, Swami Muktananda, Eckhart Tolle, and SN Goenka.

Many people have told me that this book has helped them understand their emotional blocks and obstacles to their success in an entirely new way. As they've embraced the tools I teach, they've improved relationships, started new careers, broken old habits,  discovered new passions and interests, and experienced happier, more successful lives.
