Upcoming Workshops in Los Angeles

This post was written by Donald Michael Kraig

For all of my friends in the Southern California area:

This Sunday, December 5, from 2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m., I’ll be giving a workshop at the new occult shop in town:

The Green Man
5712 Lankershim Blvd
North Hollywood, CA 91601
Call 818-985-2010  http://thegreenmanstore.com/

The subject:


Talismans and amulets are powerful magickal tools that can be used as part of any style of magick. In this class you’ll discover the key elements that can make your talismans and amulets magickal successes and help you achieve any goal. Many of these topics are omitted from other classes and you’re going to find that even if you never make a talisman or amulet, the techniques you learn here will enhance your magickal skills, knowledge, and results. When this class is over you’ll know exactly how to design, construct, and empower these items.

  • Banishing rituals
  • The three necessities of magick
  • The nature of talismans and amulets
  • The SMART key to setting your magickal goal
  • The five types of amulets
  • Working with energy
  • Methods of A. O. Spare
  • Chaos magick techniques

Talismans and amulets are easy to make, and you’ll learn so many variations and options that designing and creating exactly what you need will be easy. If you’ve ever wondered what talismans are, what the designs on them mean, or how they’re used, you’ll want to take this class. If you’ve tried making amulets but not been achieved the results you’ve desired, this class will show you what you’ve missed and how to make corrections for the future.

So take a break from your holiday shopping. Come by for the workshop (it’s only $20), see the new store, meet some great people, and have some fun!

For the first time in the Southern California area I’ll be teaching a complete course in hypnosis, leading to certification as a hypnotherapist. With this training you can become a respected, certified practitioner of hypnosis. Hypnosis is not truth serum, a lie detector, a mysterious power, or a way to control others. Hypnosis is one of the oldest, safest, most studied, and most successful means of creating a change in behavior or attitude that has ever existed.

  • Bad habits? Destroyed!
  • Intense fears? Demolished!
  • Become more positive? Easy!
  • Help people turn their lives around? Yes!
  • Determine when someone is lying? Every time!

Hypnosis is something everyone can learn, but it is not something that can be fully taught in one brief session. Like any skill, you’ll need time to practice. As a result, to fully learn the basics of hypnosis, this course will take three weekends for 60 hours of in-class training on three non-consecutive weekends. To receive your certification, you will also be required to do outside practice and turn in book reports on three different books. It is estimated that this should take an additional 40 hours of work, giving a total of 100 hours of work to achieve your certification. Certification is through The Society of Experiential Trance. For an extra $60, you instead may be certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. For an additional $100 you may receive certification in both the SET and the ABH.

• What you can say and what you must not claim
• How and why to specialize
• How to have several offices


This is a serious course for people who really want to learn hypnosis and be able to proudly display their earned certificate in hypnosis. For you to be certified you must:

  • Attend all course classes
  • Provide a summary of your out-of-class hypnosis practice
  • Provide three book reports from a list of books that will be provided.

The book reports should be a minimum of 20, double-spaced, pages. The book reports should show that you thoroughly understand all aspects of the books. You will also be required to show proficiency in your skills as a hypnotist during classes, culminating with your hypnotizing another student, making that student rigid as a bar of steel, and safely placing them across two chairs so they are supported by only by his or her head and feet.


If you have thought of changing careers, or moving into a complementary healing profession, this is an ideal course for you. When you receive your certification you will be ready to begin as a hypnotherapist immediately. This is perhaps the only legitimate healing profession career you can begin after a few weeks of intense study and practice rather than spending months or years and many thousands of dollars in training.

If you already have a career in standard medical practice (such as if you are a licensed physician or nurse), or if you practice some form of alternative or complementary healing modality, this course is also for you. It will give you a powerful and effective way to add additional skills to your training and scope of practice.

This course, however, is not only for those who wish to become professionals. Most of the so-called classes offered in hypnosis only give the very basics and the progressive relaxation induction. This course is an in-depth training. If you want to learn hypnosis to change your life, to help your friends and relatives, to overcome bad habits, to end limiting beliefs, or just to discover the truth about hypnosis, how it works, and how to do it, this will be the most valuable course you ever take.

Is saying that mere hyperbole? Is it over the top? Not at all! Right now, most people believe themselves to be buffeted by fate, chance, the actions of others. They feel they don’t succeed because they’re too tall, too short, too fat, too skinny, too light skinned, too dark skinned, have too little hair, have too much hair, had a bad childhood, didn’t get enough education, didn’t get a good education, had too much education, or whatever. There’s always a reason for failure and unhappiness. The truth is, your reasons for unhappiness and failure are valid reasons.

And there’s another word for reasons: excuses.

If you’re one of the people who considers themselves to be a victim of fate and back luck, you can choose to remain a victim, struggling to achieve just a bit of joy and success. Or you can choose to be the cause of everything in your life. You can choose not to believe those ideas that cry out, “I can’t, I’m not able, everything’s against me.” You can choose to be a victor in life and reach whatever realistic goal you desire. The choice is up to you.


Do you think you’re worth at least $3 an hour? That’s less than half of the minimum wage. You couldn’t see a movie at a theater for $3. Even a pack of cigarettes costs more than that.

Are you willing to invest just $3 in yourself? That’s a small amount for you to be able to rid yourself of bad habits and unwanted behaviors. Three dollars is a pittance to remove those thoughts and ideas in your unconscious that have silently prevented you from achieving your goals and being happy. You’ll spend more than $3 for a “Happy Meal” at Micky D’s. I think you’re worth $3. Do you think you’re worth it?


If you think there’s a “cost” for this training, a “price,” you’re still thinking backwards. This course is an investment in changing your life forever. And this investment in your future is just $3 per hour. For 100 hours of training, for a future of success, for a new career, the total investment for you to take this training is merely $300.00.

To become a registered nurse takes years, costs thousands of dollars, and you have to work for others. Take this course and in a matter of weeks you can be on your way to a respected career where you set your own hours, choose your own clients, can earn a lot of money helping people, and never have to change a bed pan!


We are currently deciding on the exact weekends to hold this class. It will be on three non-consecutive weekends. Space is extremely limited. Call The Green Man at 818-985-2010 today and let them know you want to change your life. Let them know the weekends you’d like to spend changing your future.

Why I’m qualified to teach this course: I began my study and practice of hypnosis over 25 years ago. I began formal studies of hypnosis and allied arts over a decade ago. Since that time I have received numerous trainings. I am certified as a hypnosis practitioner through the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH), The American Board of Hypnotherapy (ABH), The Society for Experiential Trance (SET), and the Association for Integrative Psychology (AIP). I am certified as a master practitioner of NLP through the AIP and am certified to teach hypnosis by the ABH and the SET. I have hypnotized thousands of people individually and in workshops all around the U.S.
