This is the real deal! I had the idea, but didn’t know how to do it, now I do! What an incredible opportunity you have for everyone!
Terry Gahm, Omaha, NE

Absolutely fantastic! Life changing. Am anxious to to take home and not only apply to my life, but to see what happens to everyone around me. Also keeping in contact with everyone in the class that I now consider family.
Linda Taylor, Flora, IL

This course was far beyond what I had imagined! It took me to a higher level in my life that Inever realized I could go to (or need to go to). These processes of 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ are beyond verbal explanations – seeing and experiencing these amazing tools is truly life changing!
Pam Moshé, Dix Hills, NY

This was the most profound life changing experience of my life. It provided me with a sense of purpose and destiny that had been missing in my life. The practical instruction provided to hypnotherapists goes beyond any that I have ever experience. This instruction was almost a bonus considering all of the self-awareness you attain as a result of the 7th Path Self Hypnosis® course.
Romeo Gonzalez, New York, NY

This was a review and it was absolutely worth it! Thank you.
Sonja Tarbox, Minnetonka, MN

I feel this course was the best thing I could have taken to advance me professionally and personally. I received my NGH certification less than a year ago and felt quite comfortable with standard inductions and direct suggestion scripts. The problem was I knew that many clients had underlying emotional issues at the root of issues for which they were seeing me and I had no hypnotic tools with which to address those issues. 5-PATH® has made me secure in knowing that I now have the ability to go deeper and make profound changes in people's lives. There's a lot of information packed into 7 days and there will be an absorption period but I feel I was given all the necessary info to use this technique immediately. I also feel secure in my ability to perform rapid inductions and create somnambulism in my clients.
7th Path™ was a profound personal experience for me. Changes that occurred that week have remained and are ongoing in their development. I wish to teach this to everyone I love and care about so they too can reap the benefits physically, mentally, emotionally and most of all spiritually. I believe 7th Path™ is life-changing.
Cal Banyan is to be commended for being an excellent teacher. Those long days were excellently paced with a wealth of information presented with enthusiasm, warmth and humor. I never once lost my concentration while Cal was talking!
Most of all, Call is a role model for all of us. An excellent hypnotherapist, teacher and mentor, he has taken his goodwill toward mankind to another level through his dedication to 7thPath and his intent to share this with all of us. Thank you Cal.

Outstanding in every way! Surpassed my wildest hopes and imaginings, helped me grow in so many ways and on so many levels that I can’t praise it enough or feel a deeper gratitude for the gift of it. Cal Banyan is an exceptional teacher, supported by a wonderful support staff. The systems he’s developed are founded on solid therapy and countless hours of painstaking application. He is a master of his trade and well-deserving of the countless awards NGH has heaped on him. His methods are practical, detailed, efficient and beautifully elegant – absolutely state of the art. I have been a practicing Hypnotherapist for over 10 years, but this takes me to a whole new level of professionalism (if I can only measure up to Cal’s exacting standards!). My experience with 7th Path Self-hypnosis, thus far, has been profound and I look forward to my daily practice. Comparing it to other self-hypnosis procedures that I’m acquainted with, it’s absolutely unique, and again far different from anything I might have expected. It was wonderful to watch myself and my classmates transform! I enthusiastically recommend Cal Banyan and the Banyan Hypnosis Center! Thank you all!
G. Espahbad Dodd, MA, Portland, ME

I’ve been to two different hypnotherapy certification courses, I’m not one of these people who keep taking classes over and over, it’s just that neither one of those classes adequately prepared me to start a hypnotherapy practice. However, Mr. Banyan’s hypnosis certification course was far superior in content, explanation, and ease of application, which gives me the confidence I need to really apply these techniques to make all the differences in people’s lives. Cal, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for making a real difference in my life.
Bruce Burkey, New Orleans, LA

It was all 1st class to me. Cal is a Pro – not only as a teacher/instructor, but the office personnel was tremendous as well. All were well-trained and awesome attitudes. Materials was worth of praise from any center of Higher Learning. Lastly, the ongoing support for graduates is just thrilling. Cal, words fall short of my gratitude. Thanks ever so much.
Robert Baker, M.Ed., Lacey, WA

The class was more than I could have asked for or imagined. It is a transformational experience that organizes information in such a way that it is useable and teachable to others, Cal ‘ walks his talk’, cares about the students’ learning experience and is very effective.
Linda Montana, MSW, St. Paul, MN.

I came to the Banyan Hypnosis Center with only the knowledge that I had chosen the very best place to learn the cutting edge of self-hypnosis and hypnotherapy. The experience of the last 10 days has been so much more than I could have ever hoped for or imagined. I am truly proud to say I learned from the very best, cause I now know what that actually means. Thank you.
Suzette Merrow, Chicago, IL.

I really enjoyed this course. It was much more in depth and complete than I expected. Learning the 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ together was really complete. The rapid inductions were great! All the material – books, videos and handouts are very complete. Cal Banyan does a great job teaching this course. He puts his whole self and his great amount of knowledge and experience into his teaching!
Heidi Gilman, Elk River, MN

This was a very good course. I got all I needed to know from this course plus more. Anybody would enjoy the experience.
Doug Gorton, Buffalo, MN

This course was so incredible! Cal is truly a master teacher! He takes his 5-PATH® hypnosis system and breaks it down systematically, so that it is easy to learn and apply. His caring, down to earth personality combined with a great sense of humor and love of theatrics kept us entertained as well as educated. This 7th Path self-Hypnosis® system was the real surprise – it will knock your socks off! I am so grateful to Cal, Maureen and rest of the staff for making us feel at home and for all the ongoing encouragement. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Linda Pickard, Fayetteville, NY

Cal knows his stuff and has a way of teaching that keeps it fun and interesting, which makes the time fly by.
David Smith, Sandpoint, ID

In this course, I learned far more than I ever expected and went way beyond my expectations! Cal, I really want to thank you for challenging me and pushing me when I needed to be pushed. Thank you for showing me the road to ultimate enlightenment. Just in the 10 days of your 7th Path self-Hypnosis® studies, I have begun to feel significant changes in my life and I know if I continue to use it, things will only get better. So, on a final note, I am forever in your debt! Thank you so much for being who you are!

The instructor Calvin Banyan, was excellent in the class and the manual/handouts were very clear and professional. Doing the 5-PATH® Certification course in conjunction with the NGH Convention is really convenient and cost-effective. I will recommend this course to others.
Mahboob Razaqh Hussain, United Arab Emirates

Cal is a great instructor. The course is powerful and I think that everyone who really wants to help his/her clients needs to learn these techniques.
Maria Torri, Garrison, NY

This course was extremely well integrated and presented in an easy to follow logical sequence. It is by for one of the best, if not the best, workshop I have taken from the NGH. The course book was well written and supported the lecture presentation. Instructor was knowledgeable and brought much practical insight to the topic.
William A. Roventine, M.Sc., Cumberland, RI

Cal was very expert in his presentations. Knowledge base is sound. I will be using this information in my practice right away! I can see now that parts have been missing in my practice. Thanks Cal
Ed Mackey, C.R.N.A., M.S., M.S.N., B.C.H., C.I., Kennett Square, PA

Cal presents the course material in a professional and concise manner. The course material contains the answers to many of the questions I have experienced in my 8 years as a Hypnotherapist

If you charged double, it would still be worth it, no question.
Mark Whelan, Chelmsford, MA

Cal, Maureen, Erin and all of the staff here make you feel very comfortable, energized and excited to learn! I have every faith in my hypnotherapist in Eau Claire, WI, Richard Marano, CH, and he took his Advanced Training here. Cal’s excellent and elegant, insightful ways of presenting the entire process, with plenty of demonstrations and time for questions and extra help has been and will continue to be a greater experience than I ever could have imagined! The continuing support and multi-access to information is invaluable. You have my eternal gratitude and I’m sure I’ll be back.Thanks!
Jill Whiting, Eau Claire, WI

Very interesting course that was taught in a very comprehensive manner. Through the course, support and encouragement as provided by Cal and other staff as well, which I appreciated.
Summer Sticha, BA, LGSW, Faribault, MN

Well structured, thorough treatment, competent and stimulating instruction, and content that was 10 times more and 10 times better than I expected when I signed up.
Richard Ebbs,B.Sc. M.Sc.

He [Cal] was great, wonderful, delightful, very well informed and nice. I’d sell my kids to do it again.
Fred Peters, McAllen, TX

I am very happy with the course. I really appreciate the orderliness and structure, balanced with the metaphysical and spiritual content. Cal is an inspired and totally prepared teacher with a devious, playful side that provides laughter (comic relief). The fact that business, marketing and sales training are included is significant. I love the generous spirit of sharing all of your experience and materials so that I’m truly prepared to do sessions within 24 hours! This work is very significant and I will contribute to making the world a happier, more enlightened space. I will share this work with many people immediately.
Denise Keenan, LaCrosse, WI

This course was like no other I have ever taken. I enjoyed it to the utmost extent. I feel like I am leaving with something concrete. I have been in school for 18 years and have never enjoyed learning as much as I did here. Cal is a fantastic teacher and amazing at what he does. I feel privileged to be taught by a true master. Thank you!!
Kristin Schreier, BA, Roseville, MN

There was an ignorance on my part, as to the extent of the training and of the learning, not only did I receive one of the finest teaching experiences, I also took part in an amazing life enhancing experience. These are familiar words everyone, I’m sure understands, but, the experience goes beyond the known or familiar! Thank you!
Joseph Riley, Methuen, MA

Dear Cal and Maureen. I wanted to let the last hours of coursework sink in before giving my full impressions of the training I received at Banyan Hypnosis Center over the past two weeks. Your 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy Certification course was one of the most intensive learning experiences of my adult life. I found the structure of the course to be excellent and well designed for adult learning. The integration of 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®, the immediate application of knowledge through practice, and student sharing during class produced incredible insights and confidence in learning. Useful feedback usually has some form of critical insight or suggestions for improvement but I am at a loss for any such offering. If I were to take the class again knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t change a thing. I believe that we are often changed by learning, but something more than that happened during this experience. Your course embedded within it a transformational opportunity. One would have to work at not being personally, deeply and positively impacted by the time spent learning this material, practicing the techniques, sharing the experience and bathing in the wisdom present. I believe that every member of our class experienced some form of personal transformation during the two weeks. I whole heartedly recommend, and will certainly promote, your training and services center and this course.

A very provocative course! It challenged everything I know about hypnotherapy and its effectiveness. I feel confident about going back to my clients and really giving them what they are searching for. Extremely well organized manual and presentation. Stayed on track so that we covered everything we needed to learn.
Paula Anderson, Glendale, CA

Absolutely awesome! God has really blessed you both. Keep up the good work! Anyone that asks me about becoming a hypnotherapist, I will send them to you!
Randy Cummings, Evans, CO

This course has been a very well rounded and wonderful experience. I feel so fortunate to have trained under Cal, who’s obviously an expert in this area. The course is full of useful information that I can’t wait to try out. I learned so much. And 7th Path ™ is awesome. This whole experience has been a “class act”. Thank you!
Cary Strycker, B.S., Bay City, MI

When I came to this class I expected an intense week of dry/focused instruction on hypnosis. However, what I received was one gift after another: confidence, future expertise, knowledge, the 7th Path to personal freedom and empowerment and so much more! Cal presents the information in a way that makes the materials easily accessible and easily understood and applicable. You will leave with all the tools you need to recreate the 5-PATH system or do a presentation as needed.
Miriam Goldstein, B.A., LMT, Huntington Station, NY

I learned more than I ever imagined, Cal was tough which I liked because I was there to learn and I know I did. 7th Path ™ is the most remarkable program I have ever gone thru. This course changed my life. I like his no-nonsense approach.
Nancy Matthews, Monroe, WI

Second time around fostered so much greater insight! A great experience.
Martha Sofio, MSN, Hastings, MN

I originally took the class 7 months ago, I am returning now after having practiced 5-PATH® for a few months. This experience as a returning student has been invaluable to me. I picked up so much information that I missed the first time. I feel even more confident to go home and continue to use 5-PATH and I am even more excited to now teach 7th Path™. Very valuable experience.
Terry Gurley, Indialantic, FL

It was great to come back. I learned more information that I may have missed or forgotten from the first class. It was fun to help my peers practice. It helped me see how far I’ve come and they could relate to my being in their shoes just a few short months ago. Their praise for my skills boosted my confidence a great deal.

The course is comprehensive and well arranged. The materials are clear with sufficient exercises to practice and application of the theory. The instructor is capable to teach and supervise the students through the practical parts, personally, I graduated from the course with solid understanding of hypnosis and it’s practical side of hypnotherapy. Thank you!
Mohsen Abdelazim, B.S.Safat, Kuwait

Elegant in its simplicity, profound in its understanding of the human condition. A gift to ourselves and others. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll become one with the Path. Thank you!!
Linda Tourville, MSN, CNM, Gilbert, AZ

This class was absolutely a shocking and renewing experience for me. I had no idea how totally committed you could become to a program in just 10 days. For the work that has been done and the anticipation of further experiences, I thank you. It is a walk along this life’s path I was not aware I was going to take but I’m glad I did.
Kathy Swafford, B.S., DeKalb, IL

This class went far beyond my expectations! The information was well presented and the structure made it easy to follow. I found Mr. Banyan to be an enjoyable and engaging teacher.
Geoffrey Marshall, Golden Valley, MN

The class was great – really informative. I appreciate Cal’s expertise and that he wants the students to be the best hypnotherapists in the business. The experience was truly life changing.
Nancy Heuer, North Prairie, WI

Enjoyed the intensity of the course and ability to get completed in 10 days. I liked intro to 7th Path™. I feel as though it will be a life changer as I proceed.
Jon Lambert, RN, Trophy Club, TX

It’s best thing I have ever done in my life.
Sal Weber, MS, Fargo, ND

Cal, this was the best course that I have ever taken. You pushed very hard to make me live up to what I could do and it has forever changed my life. Many thanks.
Larry Galloway, Naperville, IL

Excellent course and instructor. Cal Banyan is an exceptionally qualified and interesting teacher.
Scott Forsgren, DC, Northfield, MN

This is course is a ‘must’ for anyone who is serious about his/her life. It is very useful for the self, family, and others. It is beyond expectations, this is the best investment I have done in my life.
Mr. Banyan is a great teacher with a well balanced personality and a long experience in hypnotherapy, one of the most interesting thing, is the integration of hypnosis with the metaphysical side. Mr. Banyan has this knowledge too.

Having attended other hypnosis/hypnotherapy training courses, this is by far the very best course I’ve attended. The material is well organized, the instruction is very thorough and the numerous practice sessions allowed me to cement the concepts into my brain. The systematic approach to 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ that Cal has developed and teaches has given me a structural approach that will make my clients and myself successful.
Mike Bowers, N. Canton, OH

From doing hypnosis since 1995, and attending many other schools and seminars, I can tell you this school and the techniques taught are “cutting edge” and far superior to anything that is out there! It is so wonderful to find out that a system has been found which yields such great results. This school has very much changed my life as well as my practice. Thank you for all your help.
Patrick T. Crissy, Asheville, NC

Cal – thanks for sharing your wealth of knowledge. Your own mastery of this material is confidence-building. Thank you for your confidence in us, as well. Your systematic approach was a perfect introduction for me to hypnotherapy.
Christiane Minnick, BFA, Silver Spring, MD

The class was very thorough and presented in a systematic professional manner. It was especially helpful in showing proper techniques of doing age regression and allowing the students ample practice time. I would recommend this class to any professional who wishes to excel in this type of therapy.
Larry Adey, M.S., Princeton, MN

This was a fantastic experience for me. I feel empowered to start a new business as a hypnotherapist. By using 7th Path™ daily, I am positive I will succeed. God Bless you!
Cindy Erickson, Portageville, NY

Cal is great. He truly wants you to succeed. Course was laid out so you get the practical experience to do hypnosis.
Richardson Leong, BS, Hawthorne, CA

Complete explanation of materials/ideas presented. Materials nicely organized and easy to follow. Cal has a thorough grasp on the material and presents it well. Also allows for the class questions/interaction so you understand the material. Very patient with students! Thanks!
