This was a powerful class. I took this course to gain confidence as a hypnotist. Not only did I gain confidence but also the course itself superseded my expectations. The 5th and 7th PATH ® program ensures success in both client and personal change. My personal experience was powerful. I was able to see my purpose, which confirmed I’m finally on my right path.
Karla Hermann, Belgium, WI

Cal, you’re the greatest! After working with several methods, I finally have a structured approach that works miracles.
Sylvia Eichmann, Switzerland

Brilliant! This training is by far the best investment I’ve make in myself since becoming a professional hypnotist 4 years ago. Cal Banyan’s teaching style is a delight and so thorough that it’s really easy to enjoy the learning experience here at the center.
Phillip Dickerson, Plano, TX

Cal is an outstanding teacher. He is a top-notch hypnotherapist who is very inspirational. I received great information and instructions from this class about what works best for clients to transform and work through their issues. From me 7th PATH ® surprised me and I look forwarded to continuing to work with it.
Beth Barish, Huntington Beach, CA

Thank you so much for making me a better hypnotist! I was very impressed by the level of organization and spirit of professionalism. The quality of the educations and training is truly exceptional. This course is highly recommended and should be required as part of the advanced training of all aspiring hypnotherapist.
Scott Pearlman, MD, New York, NY

Most excellent- A major overhaul of the practitioner and hypnosis skills set.
Chuck Pommer, Plano, TX

The course was awesome; the systematic way 5-PATH® is put together is very well designed. Any true practitioner in helping and healing arts (especially hypnosis) will make quantum leaps in success. Age regression to the initial sensitizing event is the key. What you do after getting to the ISE is really, what this course is all about. 7TH PATH® on the other hand was a great surprise, it is brilliant! Summing of 7th PATH® succinctly I would say it teaches, “physicians heal thy shelf” and then it does. Cal is a great teacher. He is very systematic and clear in his approach. You will like him.

I really enjoyed the course. You will be surprised at what you learn. Enjoy the ride!
Mark Bollay, Mission Viejo, CA

Received more than I ever could imagine. 5-PATH® was structured, well taught and hands on practice gave confidence. 7-PATH™ amazing! Like transformational and I look forward to teaching/spreading this to others. Cal you are inspirational and I do aspire to be as good (if not better!) than you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Manjeet Kaur, Selangor, Malaysia

The course was harder than I had anticipated. However, the knowledge was amazing. I am so glad that I went through the course.
Linda Bollay, Mission Viejo, CA

The first day Cal told us, "This is a hard class" and he meant it. We learned far more than I could imagine and Cal taught it very effectively. I only recommend this class to people who are very serious about learning how to do the best possible hypnosis work with their clients.
Scott Babb, Merrimack, NH

I have leaned so many things more than I thought I would. I only went to this training to be a Certified Hypnotherapist but I had so much more. The most important thing I have gained and learned and very much thankful for was when I learned to know about myself. I believe and I know I was meant to be here and I am so blessed for the training. I know that to be able to be more effective in helping others is to know yourself first and all your potentials and capabilities and I now know that I'd be able to help more and touch more lives because of the Banyan Hypnosis Center. Cal is a very good instructor and certainly will touch more lives. Thank you very much. I would love to attend more training from this center and continue to be in touch with the center. I would certainly recommend your center and everything that has to do with Banyan Hypnosis Center and Cal Banyan to everybody I know that needs your services.
Johanna Paula B. Nombreda, Manila, Philippines

I'd suggest you advise future students, with other interest (jobs), your classes are scheduled with 10-11 hour days with 2-3 hours homework periodically and it is very difficult to attend class, do homework and support other interest (job) in between classes, after class or on weekends. Take off two weeks and let someone else take care of your business.
Ralph Cornish, Dallas, TX

As a "Re-Taker" of the class, even though I hate taking tests, I suggest that everyone take both exams because it is good reinforcement of the learning and helps the student identify weak areas. Great course, well organized and presented in an interesting manner.
Majorie Clark-Cone, San Clemente, CA

The course is beyond informative! With the extensive knowledge and experience of Cal Banyan, I learned basic to advanced hypnotherapy efficiently and effectively. I learned, I practiced, and I learn more - a cycle built for success in hypnotherapy. With 5-PATH® and 7-PATH Self-hypnosis®, the whole course is transformed to a life changing experience as well. In totality, the course is not only for developing your skills and improving your knowledge in hypnotherapy, but also for programming your LIFE for SUCCESS!
Reuben D.R. Nuval, Manila, Philippines

Excellent programs. Provided structure, education and professionalism. 7-PATH® provided personal insight and life changing experience. I will continue to incorporate 5-PATH® and 7-PATH® in my professional career.
Carolee Rada, Boston, MA

It is an interesting course of 5-PATH® Hypnosis. I learned a lot from this course, and wish I can do good enough and able to set up an office. But, the 7-PATH® self-hypnosis is really a great program that help me to connect to my own problem, it really improved my life; I appreciate very much for the great program and especially with Cal Banyan. He has given us with great knowledge about hypnosis and 7-PATH® experience. Thanks a lot.
Thanh D. Nguyen, Irvine, CA

Great Class!
Omar Chavez, Corona, CA

A totally fulfilling experience. Totally professional from start to finish... A total insight into how hypnosis and hypnotherapy should be taught. I feel personally I have learned so much that I'm confident I can open my practice straight away. Cal has a unique style of teaching… His passion about 5-PATH® hypnosis come through, throughout the entire course. Maureen made the entire class feel welcome and nothing was of any trouble... An amazing experience - Well done, Cal and Maureen. Hypnosis training, the way it should be.
Bobby Herdman, Belfast, Ireland

The course is life changing, everyone should take it.
Elvia Lopez, Santa Ana, CA

First, I thank Cal and Maureen and the staff. And thank you for giving me second time opportunities to study. This time I learned a lot and I felt that I've gained my confidence more. If you have Master Hypnotherapy Course, I may take that. I'll check your website to see any classes you offer. Thank you very much.
Akiko Nakajima, Irvine, CA

It's a life enriching program. I realized that whatever experience I had, what I felt at every moment of that is all in the mind and I feel so much gratitude inside me. Mr. Banyan is a great mentor. I feel more alive, confident and thankful.
Maria Belen Grace R. Mendoza, Manila, Philippines

One thought just kept ringing through my mind the entire time I was taking this course; "WOW this is so much better than I expected." The class covered so much material in such a short time, yet it was presented in a way that was easy to follow and really made learning easy. The manuals that go along with the course are going to be a fantastic reference for the future. I just can't imagine how it could ever get any better than this.
Gregory J. Gay, Blades, DE

I think the instructor is wonderful, he gets right to the point, no sugar coating, gives you all the information you need to go out there and get started. The support and the experience has been great, I am excited to get my future going doing the things that I feel I have always known and wanted but now have the knowledge and understanding to proceed... Thank you for the steps to lead myself, but to finally have the opportunity to help others in a way that will make an impact.
Jackie A. Krukoff, Anchorage, AK

Easily the most comprehensive, plus well structured training program I have attended in the last twenty years. Without a doubt this training efficiently and effectively bridges the theory- practice "GAP". Cal, Maureen and their staff simply did a fantastic job. Well done!
Gerry Feeney, Sligo, Ireland

This was, quite frankly, just an amazing life enhancing experience, certainly beyond my wildest expectations. My personal experiences were the following: Physically- I came with excruciating pain on the soul of my foot, which I have had for 6 months without any relief. Being overweight, I had an insight that my electric energies are also affected by what is ingested. This was like a bomb going off in my hand, a spin off being that my thinking of various foods has now changed. Emotionally: I found I was able deeply and profoundly to forgive a long standing hurt, making me much freer in my sprit. Spiritually: I found I was able to get numerous insights during the 7-PATH® and I'm sure they will continue. I tell you this because the changes are so profound and speaks more volume than I am able to write out on the experiences plus benefits by being on the 7-PATH® could. I found 5-PATH®, all that I had hope it would be, plus more. It was a lot if information given in a short time. I would feel confident that I will be able to bring positive changes to many people in circumstances too numerous to mention. I love Cal! (Now that's a surprise!) He spoke sometimes a wee bit too fast for me - but that was my problem, not his! Actually I thought he was brilliant and I felt very honored to have been taught by him.

P.S. I also know that I will not be able to do this work unless it will be "Inspired" work, coming from my maker

This class far exceeded my expectations. We went from 8-6:30 daily and there we were actively engaged the entire time. Cal Banyan is a master teacher, who has created quality materials. He has a systematic approach that he explains thoroughly in an entertaining yet highly professional way. I have taken numerous courses in college, graduate school, and workshops. Cal Banyan is among the very BEST I have has the opportunity to learn from. I am thrilled that I took this course and got more than my money's worth. Thank you, Cal & Maureen!
Lynn Arnold

This training course exceeded my expectations. Cal offers a perfect balance of classroom education and practice time. At the conclusion of the two week session, I felt confident that I could perform the most difficult components of 5-PATH®. For me, 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® was icing on the cake. I had a positive personal growth experience from using the recognitions.
Marc Bertone

Tops! one of the Best investments I have made. 7th Path™ went way beyond expectations. - 5 PATH® put depth, and clarity to make my hypnotherapy practice super effective and well consistently yielding excellent results.
Kim Bradford Bothwell

We practiced, practiced, practiced! I feel very confident that I am ready to help people make changes in their lives.
Sue Grohn

Thorough course with emphasis on practice-practice-practice! I like that! This course will benefit everyone even those without an open mind! Cal has a big heart he's trying to hide! Cal is an excellent instructor----a nice mix of theory & practice in a dynamic, interesting environment.
Xyb Pontra

This was an unforgettable experience that has changed the way I think about hypnosis and psychotherapy. I realize now that hypnotherapy is what I was meant to do in order to help clients more efficiently and effectively. I intend to get started right away. Cal is a motivating and knowledgeable instructor who never allows a boring moment! you would have to experience him to understand! Thanks Cal!
Gabrielle Rodriguez

I have been teaching and educating adults for over 30 years. Covering a wide spectrum of training modalities. The use of interactive training is in my opinion by far most effective. However, a well designed course structure is also a must for an effective transfer of learning. Cal Banyan's Advanced Hypnotherapy Training is absolutely phenomenal in content and presentation and insight and most importantly the student immediately applies theory to practice. Cal has integrated complex theory into easy practical and understandable terms that any student with common sense will understand. Thank you Cal, I am honored and pleased to have been trained by the Banyan Hypnosis Center. First Class all the way!
G. Michael Schmidt

I Enjoyed the course. 5 PATH® was absolutely terrific. I can't wait to apply what I have learned. The 2 hours of practice each day was very valuable with you and Marc giving us feedback. Thanks and well done.
Mitch Nielsen

This was a great course that exceeded my expectations. The content was excellent, very well organized and presented. Cal's expertise and presentation skills are extraordinary.
John Kane, Albany, NY

I learned a lot during the 2 weeks of training. Thank you!
Fausti Call, Sabadell, Barcelona - SPAIN

One of the few classes I have attended that I feel I got more than my money's worth! Cal is a great teacher. The time flew by, he kept us on track and kept it fun and interesting. I have taken hypnosis classes before and we got a lot of practice in this class along with the other information we needed. The time I have spent here will allow me to grow my business exponentially. I was looking for a system. I knew there had to be one out there. I found the website - talked to a graduate and got excited.
Delia Wall, Kingwood, TX

It was a great opportunity to learn hypnosis, 5 PATH® and 7th Path™. I really recommend you take this class. "Wow" Your career and life style will become greater and that makes you feel who you are. Thank you very much, Cal!!
Akiko Nakajima, Laguna, CA

I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I would very highly recommend it to anyone interested in the field of hypnotherapy. Cal has designed an extremely effective and efficient method to teach an incredible amount of information in a very short time. I look forward to putting what I've learned into use.
Aimee Lee, Berkely, CA

This has been one of the most informative (and fun) classes I've ever taken. the information was presented clearly and concisely. There was plenty of time for practice (very important), and it was enjoyable. And the insights I gained from learning 7th Path™ were unbelievable. The teaching was superb, and the staff was delightful. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in really learning about hypnosis.

The Ultimate Recognitions class was even more powerful than i expected. I feel like I've come to a new and much deeper connection with my higher power and i feel confident that I have the tools I need to teach. I can't wait to share the complete 7th Path™ process with others. Cal you are the master teacher. Thank you.
Lynda Malerstein, Los Angeles, CA

Have finally come full circle in order to get on with what I came into this world to do!
Marc Mallot, Lebanon

I feel inspired by the class and the Ultimate Recognitions. I feel blessed, humbled, and excited by the prospect of teaching this to others. This miracle has the potential of changing lives and communities of the world. Thank you Cal and Maureen.
Tricia Woolfrey, Surrey, UK

The Ultimate Recognitions are more than I could have imagined them to be. The world can be a better, more loving and more peaceful place if we make 7th path available to as many people as possible. Get on the Path
Alexandra Bley, Palo Alto, CA

I traveled several thousand miles to do this course driven by a compulsion that i did not full understand, yet was undeniably far bigger and stronger than I am. I was not disappointed. This course has been, for me, empowering, enlightening, inspiring and spiritually uplifting. Cal is a passionate and motivational master trainer and teacher, dedicated to empowering others to spread the message of 7th Path™ throughout the world. I am proud and honored to be one of the relatively few to have received the Ultimate Recognitions, and I willing take on the responsibility of delivering that message to as many people as possible.

Creative, funny, informative, ultimately professional and life changing. Satisfied (and exceeded) my expectations, desires and needs. 7th Path is phenomenal – best part! All worth all the (really) hard work and drill even the exam. Really nice group – civilized & sharing – added greatly to the learning process. Thank you.
Clare Lewis, BS (Hons), LLB, BARR, DHP, London, UK

The 5 & 7th Path™ course has been transformational both professionally & personally. 5-PATH® has been a quantum leap in therapeutic possibilities. 7th Path was a surprise, a powerful tool for personal transformation and a wonderful compliment to 5-PATH® practice. The power of 7th Path™ is phenomenal. Cal is an inspirational teacher, it is a joy to be in class.
Lynda Panter, D. Hyp, MBSCH, Gosport, UK

Picture if you will, a red sauce bottle with a “Red Sauce” label on it. You open the lid and pour and to your surprise, a blue sauce comes out!! It looks strange and different but your inquisitive side gets the better of you. You bravely dip your finger in and taste it. It’s a revelation! It tastes incredible! It suddenly introduces a whole new eating experience. It simply compliments every type of food, even this stuff you hated before!! Wow, what a change it will make. As for Cal, well, Cal is the guy who is looking over your shoulder with a big smile on his face! ‘That’s beautiful man!
Adam Keville, Petersfield, Hampshire

Cal is a gifted teacher who selflessly shares. It has been a great privilege to learn with him. Peter Field, MA, FRSH, MBACP, Wolverhampton, UK

Get on the Path! If you want to be a highly effective hypnotherapist, then Cal’s Week of Power is probably the most important course you ever attend. By adding 7th Path™ to 5-PATH®, Cal has created a program where not only do you learn the tools to change others, but by the end of the training you have changed yourself. It’s 10 times more powerful than anything else that’s out there! Barry Neale, Ph. D,  Essex, UK

Cal really goes into detail and allows you to bring out your potential in a very patient and loving way!
I recommend this course to anybody willing to improve themselves mentally, physically and emotionally – and to anyone willing to help others improve mentally, physically and emotionally.
Marc Mallat, Ph. D , Beirut, Lebanon

This is the best course I’ve done to advance my knowledge in hypnotherapy and advance my personal growth from a self development perspective. I am grateful to both Cal & Maureen for their insights, generosity and determination to provide the best possible experience. I would highly recommend both 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ for a better life. Janice Manson, RN, MN, London, UK

This is one of the best courses I have attended for professional development as a Therapist. I was already a qualified hypnotherapist and Calvin Banyan’s approach to this training is commendable. He is passionate about his subject and this comes across with sincerity and congruency. His model has embellished and challenged my map of therapy and I am grateful to him for his enthusiasm. He is the very real thing as a compassionate therapist, lots to admire & learn from. Many thanks.

If you want to get down to some real hands on hypnotherapy work, this is a great place to start. A great combination of practice (that works), instruction and experiential learning. 7th Path is awesome, go experience this. You can’t understand what the Sea is from books or films, you have to go in the Sea to further understand the concept. Such is that with 7th Path™.
Peter Salisbury, London, UK

I have been a Clinical Hypnotherapis for 12 years and enjoy being in this profession tremendously. However, the busier I have become, the more frazzled I have become juggling my practice and family life. After this week , I am going to empty a huge section of my book shelf and put those books into storage. 5-PATH® encapsulates all the depth and the wisdom that I now need to serve my clients to the standard that I have always aspired to. For that, I am most grateful. However, now I also have the tools and skill to look after myself so that I can continue to grow, prosper and serve. Now I have the 7th Path and for this, I am totally humbled and elated – God bless you Cal for your curiosity, your diligence and your heart.

I have also enjoyed hugely meeting Maureen because, for sure, behind this great man, there is a great woman. Bless you for the warmth and the sensitivity that you brought to the meeting. For creating a workable and comfortable environment and for having such a great smile. Christine Neillands, London, UK

Went to this course fully unprepared, especially concerning 7th Path. With my non-spiritual background, I experienced a lot of resistance. But now at age 65, when people around me tell me to slow down professionally, I now know that I still have a lot to learn and to teach. This makes me feel very useful, both professionally and privately. Thanks a lot!
Hans Geervliet, CH, C.I., Tremelo, Belgium

Cal is brilliant in his presentation of the extremely powerful 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ hypnosis techniques and philosophies. The manner and organization of the class allows for full absorption of massive information. The material in the manual is extremely effective in leading a practitioner on a step by step process through 5-PATH®. The class is invaluable, pleasurable and essential to all who want to become powerfully effective as a hypnotherapist.
Jennifer Wong, CH, California, USA

Insightful, educational, inspiring, revealing, questioning, taxing, rewarding, enjoyable. Cal: Masterful, generous from self, supportive, inquisitive, humorous, visionary (enables others to find next step), enabler.
Andrew Bendefy, St. Albans, UK

The elegance of the 5-PATH® & 7th Path™ techniques brings together a lot of what I know, together with a lot I wasn’t aware of, honed to only that which is most effective. It is inspired and inspiring – as is Calvin Banyan, the creator. The two techniques in concert provide a wonderfully complete and rounded process. It is like being an architect and finding the perfect building materials that won’t crack or crumble. Once built, with all the pieces in place, there stands a beautiful structure – able to deal with wind, rain & natural disaster.
Helen Craven, MA(RCA), DCH, Kingsland Basin, UK

A fabulous mixture of the practical and the inspirational. I’d thought there may be more to working with hypnosis, but didn’t suspect just how much! I’ve learned some effective new techniques, but more importantly, a powerful new system with which to help clients. Both 5-PATH® and 7th Path™ will be indispensable in my practice – and 7th Path™ in my life.

Cal, whose approach is both passionate and stern, is an excellent teacher: he is focused, credible and interesting. I wonder how necessary it is to both the FOO videos all the way through (especially the one with the bad sound)? It is important to twatch the process, but it was a little too long and passive for my learning style. All other videos, great. I feel grateful that I heard about this training, and have very much enjoyed it. Thanks for staying behind and doing the DFE stuff – brilliant! Sian Schofield, BA, PGCE, DHP, Manchester, UK
