Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. Instructor

The material taught in this course gives the students the power to change lives; their own and those of others. Everything about the course and the center speaks of the care and energy that went into putting together a program that transmits a great deal of knowledge in a relatively short period of time. Cal's demonstration of the instant induction alone is worth the price of the course, but the depth of material goes beyond anything I imagined.
Vadim Timoshpolsky, B.A. West Hartford, CT

This course combines the best hypnosis training available for the beginner or advanced student. With profound personal and spiritual growth and insights. There is nothing better out there to learning if you're a hypnotist, or interested in hypnosis. This is what you've been looking for when you had the thought, 'I just know there's something more.
Celeste B Hackett, CH Plano, TX

Taking the course the 2nd time was definitely more informative. Cal is very easy to understand and what he said made sense which makes it easier to accept into my way of thinking. His 1st class was awesome and 7th Path changed my entire way of thinking. The class was very organized.
Nancy Matthews, CH Monroe, WI

This class has helped me work some of my issues and has prepared me to help others through their issues. I feel at peace with my self and eager to do 7th Path™ work.
Frank Nowak Eau Claire, WI

This course has changed my life dramatically for the better! Of all the classes I have taken in hypnosis, this is the BEST, most information and structured in a way that brings it all together. Before this course, I was not sure of how to work with what I had learned. This class is process oriented. Much better!

I appreciate getting a process to do hypnotherapy, the passion, skill, and dedication of Cal, 7th-PATH™ for all sorts of reasons, the opportunity to share and learn from other students, a chance to grow personally as I learn, a chance to break old habits, learn new strategies, and a 7 day party. THANK YOU!
Harlan Wickre, MA, LP Rochester, MN

My experience with the 5 and 7th PATH training has been way beyond my initial expectations. The 5-PATH® is a safe process designed to integrate negative experiences and heal the core of disturbances. Cal's training style and materials are clear, concise and extremely effective. I was unprepared for the deep impact 7th-PATH® has made on me. I have taken numerous professional trainings and this training is exceptional in that it's created to penetrate to the core of your being and to enlighten your soul. 7th-PATH® is a gift to humanity. Its divine messages hone to potential to change our world.
Donna Bird, LCSU Saratoga Springs, NY

A very professionally structured and presented course given in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Daniel Schumacher, BN, MHN Mt. Barker, AUS

I thought the first time through was incredible, but retaking this class was simply amazing. There is so much to assimilate in the course that I am certain I could retake it many more times and continue to benefit from increasing depth of understanding and greater confidence in my ability. Cal Banyan is a master teacher who brings a real gift to the world of healing. I am very grateful to have received this experience (all of it).
Wendie Webber Nanaimo, CA

As a second-time participant in the 5-PATH® and 7th-PATH® training, I was even more impressed with the quality of the very special program. The 5-PATH® training is distinctly unique from others in that it provides you with the skills, techniques, and information necessary to transform you into the 'cream of the crop' in the field of hypnosis. You additionally receive a better understanding of yourself with the 7th-PATH®, which provides you with the confidence necessary to build a successful hypnosis practice. Thanks again Cal and Maureen for this wonderful experience.
Romeo Gonzalez, CH Oakland Gardens, NY

This course was like a second awakening Even though my previous training was from another renowned instructor, this course reinforced that training and introduced new concepts and processes that produced a quantum leap forward. Additionally, the 7th-PATH® training and experience was remarkable. I am very much looking forward to training many people in 7th-PATH® and implementing in the 5-PATH® process in my practice. My confidence level has increased dramatically. Cal is a very down-to-earth instructor. He presented all the materials in a clear and entertaining manor. My deepest thanks to Cal and my highest recommendations.
Tom Wood, BS, CH Omaha, NE

I encourage anyone considering learning hypnosis to take 7th-PATH® and 5-PATH® before any other hypnosis training. It's a wonderful and very structured course! I learned much more the second time around. Cal is the best teacher I have ever had, an expert in the field! His class has made me want more and more knowledge and skill!
Anne Murphy, Little Britain, CA

This is my second time through the class and it was great! Besides the deeper and more complete learning of 5-PATH®, I was brought to a whole new level of understanding of 7th-PATH® and just how important and meaningful it is. Cal is a great teacher. He makes it very interesting, explains clearly, and adds in that touch of humor that makes it fun! Thanks so much!
Vickie Smith, BS, CH, RM Adrian, ND

This class has pulled together so many methods I've learned and put them and new tools into a useable format. 5-PATH® provides clarity to me as a hypnotist. Cal Banyan is strict in his presentation and professional. He is an excellent model and walks the talk. he is an excellent teacher! I've learned so much in seven days! 7th-PATH® is so profound in its results. From the stories in class and my own experience, it si something everyone could benefit from in my opinion. If you are motivated to learn tools to help yourself and your clients, get to Cal Banyan's class. Just do it, you'll see what I mean!
Cynthia Brooks, BSN, CH Sullivan, NH

Amazing, life changing experience! So much more that I could ever have imagined. Cal has helped change my life forever through 7th-PATH® and 5-PATH® too! I look forward to my journey, wherever it may take me!
Beth O'Connor, BA, CH Kingston, MA

Taking the class for the second time was so valuable. There's so much information to process you really need to hear it twice; once for the unconscious mind and twice for the conscious mind. The information is given in a very well structured and organized system so it's easier to learn. Cal Banyan is the best teacher in the field!
Joan Ueland Wayzata, MN

Having been through many classes and courses and going through a constant and never ending learning process gives me some credibility when I state that the Banyan Hypnosis Center is truly a model for other schools, and hypnotherapy practices. Every aspect of this training and practical approach is orchestrated and purposeful for the creation of an optimum learning place with security and dignity. I truly believe that 7th-PATH® has been channeled through Cal and this awakening in his students will keep this renaissance alive and moving forward.
Patrick Boulanger, CH Newark, IL

Excellent as a skill building and personal development course. 5-PATH® brings the professional level of hypnotherapy to new and significantly higher standards. The course materials are complete and well developed. The blend of lecture, experience, practice and videos was effective, appropriate and well balanced. The instructor is highly skilled as both practitioner and instructor and is able to communicate clearly and brings his sense of passion for the profession to the students.

Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. Instructor

This is a really excellent course. Cal Banyan has taken all the insights of Dave Elman and refined them into a very clear, concise, and easily learnable program. In particular, his 5-PATH® program is a direct, elegant, and precise approach to age regression which is then integrated with forgiveness therapy and parts mediation therapy. By combining this with a unique approach to self-hypnosis(7th Path Self-Hypnosis®) Cal Banyan opens the door for clients to process their major life events, both in their past and their future for themselves. All set against the background of their reality which is only here and now.
John Andrews M.B., B.S., M.D., MRCP, Pune, India

I came into this course feeling unsure of myself, wondering how the heck I would ever be competent in doing hypnotherapy for people. I am coming out of this course today, feeling confident, competent, and having the courage to practice what I've learned. The course is fabulous-a total package of practical information & experience that gives the student more knowledge & skill than any other courses out there. The cost of the course is more than reasonable; each member of the Banyan team is more than generous with their time, experience, knowledge, guidance, positive care giving and cheerleading (and they're just plain nice, too! It was nice to never have to worry about coffee & snacks)! The instructor miraculously covers and impossible amount of material in 10 days and requires students to get their hypno-feet wet right away-no one graduates without proving that he or she can really do this work. It is inconceivable to me to learn that many courses offered elsewhere do not provide such a rigorous practicum. This course is the cutting edge in bringing a real standard of professionalism to this field. I feel confident that the training &materials I've received have empowered me to go home & begin my business-of helping people & making a living that I can be proud of. Everyone at this center is teaching-I've learned a lot from the office assistant, interns and IT folks-I learned a lot from the way the center environment is set up. My only criticism: I would have preferred not being in fluorescent light for so long.
Deborah Yaffee, Shelburne Falls, MA

The course was very thorough, the 'process' is a lifesaver. Because of the presentation, it was very understandable. Because of the process it helps build confidence, and gives a therapists ALL the tools they need to work with clients. Cal is truly the MASTER.
Randy Cook, Elmwood, WI

Going through this class the second time has been enlightening. I have been doing 5-PATH® with clients for several months, however, I think this added so much knowledge in techniques I could have been using. I studied the tapes after the class and prepared but it is so much cleare to watch and listen to Cal in person. Thank you for this opportunity. I now know I am ready to teach 7th-Path™.
Carol Poland, MS, CPC, LMHP, Broken Bow, NE

I came here to learn & I did. I would heartily recommend Mr.Banyan and his course. I would enjoy doing it again.
John Westbrook, Jr., A.S., CRNA., Cookeville, TN

Best 1,600 dollars (plus) I've ever spent! Highly recommended.
Carla J. Scharber, BA, Isanti, MN

I truly enjoyed my experience at the Banyan School of Hypnosis. Cal is an excellent instructor and as obviously found his calling as a teacher of hypnosis. Maureen is wonderfully organized and always willing to assist students in any way. I believe I have received the best hypnosis training available and feel confident that I will be an outstanding 7th Path™ teacher and 5-PATH® hypnotherapist. I also really feel like I have been nurtured during this process. Thanks Cal & Maureen
Keli Dhody, BS, MSW, LCSW, Austin, TX

I wasn't sure what to expect from this course when it first started. Cal is such a dynamic, entertaining speaker, he had me from the very beginning. I would recommend this course to anyone, for both personal and professional reasons! Everyone that works at the Hypnosis Center has such positive attitudes. They really made me feel as if I were part of their family.
Jane Hansen, RN, Ames, IA

I have gotten more out of their course in 10 days than my previous courses in life. I give it an A+. Cal is the best teacher in the world. Very knowledgeable and wonderful sense of humor. It was easy to learn because it was so well organized.
Joan Ueland, Wayzata, MN

The advertisement about this course was not deceiving at all. I got everything gout of this course that I wanted. Cal doesn't withhold info like some instructors do, he tells you anything you want or need to know. I'm so glad I cam here versus anywhere else.
Tom Scott, Eden Prarie, MN

This course was a wonderful experience. I came expecting to learn hypnosis & I did, but I am walking away with so much more. Thank you, you are a great instructor & I believe you definitely found your calling. I hope to be so fortunate.
Lauri Poland, Austin, TX

I am truly overwhelmed. The course was incredibly well designed. My experience was truly phenomenal, it has changed my life. The skills and confidence that I can take home with me are beyond what I could have imagined.
John Horn

This was one of the best trainings I ever attended on any subject. All the terms and concepts were explained in such an easy manner that learning was made so easy. In two weeks, you become a professional hypnotherapist with all the knowledge, information, practice, techniques, tools and confidence that you are raring to go.
Umesh Sharma, B.Sc(Hons), MSW, LLB, IRPM, Vapi, India

This course was magnificent. I came to the Center dazed and confused less than 90 days of receiving my graduate degree. Cal presented the information very passionately/professionally and within (3) days of doing 7th Path, I felt energetic and hopeful, a feeling I had not experienced in (3) years of graduate school. 5-PATH®/7th Path™ is revolutionary; just what we need in the 21st century.

This course came to me at a most crucial time of my life. Two years certified, I left my longtime job to do this full-time.
Patrick Boulanger, Newark, IL

Practical information for operation of hypnosis practice - clarification of regression procedures. Cal is an excellent presenter of information - lots of info in a short time, and still able to answer questions well, and keeping the class directed.
Dietrich Blaine, Hot Springs, AR

I appreciate 5-PATH® as being a full comprehensive method to have guidelines which will allow you to establish a practice with all aspects, from intensive content to business structure.
Marcell Osterwalder, Lugano, Switzerland

Cal took questions anytime during lecture as they applied and this helped with reinforcing the material. It's good to know that we are supported by Cal and his staff via phone and Internet. Thanks so much for the spot on your website!
Fran Rossoni, Wyoming, RI

All of lecture and discussion were useful. I appreciated the videos of actual sessions, they were fascinating!
Gloria Lacay, Levittown, NY

I appreciated the organization of manual/materials; Cal's excellent teaching style - blend of theory and enough videos and stories to illustrate his points. This was an unbelievably good course. Cal was an inspiring teacher.
Lisa Weaver, Guelph, Ontario

I appreciated the excellent text and handout; the amount of information shared by the Banyans. Cal provided an excellent tool to have a practice on. The 5-PATH® is an organized approach to hypnosis, much needed in the profession. This is amazing!
Maryann Boulton, Staten Island, NY

Cal is a great instructor!
Catherine Smith, Princeton, NJ

Cal's magical blend of knowledge, talent, wisdom and humor create a learning experience that is informative, exciting, and encouraging. I could listen to him all day.
Kathleen Kenney, Newport, RI

The 5-PATH® workshop is a wonderful training. I feel like I've left the realm of being a 'beginner hypnotherapist' and am on my way to making profound and lasting changes in the lives of others. Thank you!
Nathalie Kelly, Shelburne, VT

5-PATH® is great!
Judith Clarke, North Kingstown, RI

Outstanding course! At last I've found a framework for providing quality hypnotic services, and creating confidence in the client and myself as the hypnotist. Thank you!
Allan Chalmers

I have to say all of the areas of lecture were useful. I appreciated the CDs, books, and the time Cal took to answer questions. I love they way he expresses situations and examples. Calvin is one of the best instructors!
Diane Reeves

This was the best course I have taken to date! Calvin Banyan is an excellent presenter and teacher; he brought everything I have learned about hypnosis prior to this course together in a cohesive, easy-to-understand way. I appreciated most being taught 5-PATH®, a structured, step-by-step system to get great results every time!
Anne Murphy

I enjoyed the professional way in which the material was presented and the way he treated his students. I'm starting in on the 7th-PATH CDs as soon as I get home! Please have this next year!
Mary-Louise Bulmer

I'm getting pangs of regret. I wish I had known this material for the many clients who have come and gone.
James Hislop, Saratoga Springs, NY

This presentation fills the gaps experienced in past sessions. When I knew the session was going wrong, I didn't know where to go. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm feeling wonderful!
Millie Anthony

Thank you Cal for being so organized and logical to have been able to write such a great program. Your background is so valuable in making this program a real gem! A great big thank you!

Gregory S. Hoffman, Mounds View, MN

The course was an intense learning experience, none that you would ever receive in such a short period of time anywhere else. You leave with all the tools and opportunities to become a successful hypnotherapist. This course is just the beginning of an ongoing desire for self-improvement and desire to help others reach their potential and goals.
Lance Craven, Fargo, ND

A lot more information that I expected. Was taught in a generally entertaining way.
Melissa Starr, Sebeka, MN

A lot of information in a short time and gained confidence in the techniques and what we've learned so we can use them. 7th-Path™ works to help you to be able to see the human condition and work with it to see that the problems are the answers and the way out is through them.
Dave Duffney, Spencer, IA

I entered the course thinking I'd leave with a certificate saying I was a certified Hypnotherapist. I left the course with that PLUS a system(7th-Path™) that I knew would make me a a better person. (I also left without my fear of bats). What a class, what a guy.

Peggy Kelly, CH, Bowmansville, Ontario, Canada

5-PATH® Advanced Hypnotherapy is a complete program that delivers the informational tools necessary to providing the hypnosis client with rapid results through a proven system. This is truly an exceptional training program delivered by a master teacher. I wish I had known about this program 5 years ago! I could have saved myself $30,000! I can only say I am grateful for the opportunity to learn these methods now. The inclusion of 7th Path™ transforms my education from a mere therapeutic protocol approach to a self-healing system that I will use for myself and teach others to use. These are not only logical, systematic techniques – these are Paths to Personal Transformation. The Secret Language of Feelings is essential reading for every regression therapist and anyone who has feelings! READ THIS BOOK! READ IT NOW! Shall I go on?
Wendie A. Webber, CH, Nanaimo, BC, Canada

This course is a standard of excellence that many promise but often fail to deliver. I now feel I have the tools necessary to make a real difference to the clients who come to see me. I am very grateful for all your efforts to raise the standard in Hypnotherapy and I greatly appreciate your dedication to helping hypnotherapists have a model that works in such a wide variety of problems.
Diane Ireland, CH, Nanaimo, BC, Canada

This course was very transformative in both myself and my skills as a hypnotherapist. What a gift! Being relatively new in this field, I am very fortunate to be able to start my practice with the 5-PATH® program. Very explicit direction throughout the entire process. I believe I have more information about the process of hypnosis than hypnotists who have been practicing for years. Yeah!
Bonnie LeClair, CH, Midland, Ontario, Canada

The 5-PATH® course was excellent. This course was very well laid out and detailed. The instructor, Cal, was fantastic. I got the tools to be a fantastic hypnotherapist using these techniques. The 7th Path™ was far beyond my expectations. I received tools and a method of healing myself in a very powerful way, very deeply without failure.
Tom Body, Nanaimo, BC, Canada

This course was not only a great education, but a spiritual enlightenment for me. Cal not only brought an awareness of our universal similarities, but was respectful and sensitive to our cultural and religious diversities. I am on the Path!
Bonita Jepson Andersen, BS, CH, Detroit Lakes, MN

The work being done here is some of the most important work in the world. I was put on earth to do healing work with myself and with others. 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ showed me exactly HOW to do it.

I know that my spiritual path will never again be the same, for now that I know this truth, it is impossible to go back -- nor would I want to.

I was very pleasantly surprised at the content and quality of this class. It was much more than I expected. I was so happy to have received the information on the 7th Path™ and it was definitely Body, Mind, and Spirit on the individual, personal level. It is truly a path for personal transformation. The 5-PATH® information was full of concrete steps for success. The systematic approach was very helpful for assimilation and reference points. It is wonderful to know there is a practice that works out there. Cal was a 'kinda fun, kinda interesting' instructor. Really -- great, knowledgeable, complete, and delivered information in a fun way. I was surprised at his background -in a good way- a true master in this field. Anne was very helpful - very verbal and caring; did a great job. Maureen, excellent in discussing sales tools. Really, really enjoy our time here and all the people on the same Path. We can feel that you care very much about us and our world. T his will help a lot of people. Thank you so much!

Cal has developed a powerful and insightful process that everyone should experience personally. It has changed my life in the most positive way. Thank you, Cal

The course was excellent. It was very comprehensive. I love the way that Cal has formulated such an effective process. 5-PATH® is such an effective method, and the way that Cal teaches it, makes it make sense. I am so excited to practice 5-PATH®. The 7th Path® experience has been excellent and enlightening. I can’t wait to teach it, as I continue my practice of it. The course and Cal were amazing and could not have been better.

This course has been a blessing in my life. When I researched hypnosis on the computer, there was a reason that your name and sheet kept coming back on my screen. You are a wonderful instructor, so gentle, caring and funny (as in humorous). I will leave this course not only with the knowledge to do hypnosis, but with the strength to do it, 5-PATH gave me the knowledge but 7th Path is the courage and strength. Thank you for giving me and the world this marvelous tool.

I felt the facilities were excellent. I enjoyed the snacks and comfortable chairs. I enjoyed the practice. Cal’s presentations and humor were excellent.

More than I expected. I didn’t truly expect that I would be able o go from knowing nothing about hypnosis to learning everything I have learned. 7th Path was also a great surprise.

As a stage hypnotist, I had some reservations coming here for this course. However, this course is so multi-dimensional! This has been a phenomenal experience. I would recommend this for anyone and everyone, but especially for any classically trained hypnotist. It was truly enlightening!

This is a very organized and well thought out program. Excellent, practical training in both hypnosis and hypnotherapy.

Whether you’ve had hypnotism instruction before or want to learn about the techniques and profession of hypnotism, the modalities of 5-PATH® hypnotherapy and 7th Path™ Self-Hypnosis are pivotal for professional and personal success.

Cal Banyan under promised and over delivered. This has been more than a course…it’s an experience. I now feel very confident in my abilities to help people using hypnosis.
