As always, Cal’s level of knowledge and ability to instruct is exceptional. The CPHI course takes conceptual understanding of 5-PATH® to a much higher level. This course will help me achieve my goal of helping as many people as possible with 5-PATH® by training new 5-PATH® hypnotists. - Penny Chiasson, CRNA, BCH, Philadelphia, MS

The course is very empowering. Learnt so much from the master and truly understand why Pete, my trainer, did what he did in class, especially emphasizing on the drill. Powerful training and now, I am all fired up and ready to learn more and embark onto this new journey. - Nancy Wong Yan Hwa, CH, Singapore

Cal, you are really great in your job. Thank you for your time and dedication. It was very understandable and I got all the tools to make my business go on. Thanks for everything.

This class provided personal as well as professional development. Cal’s ability to convey vast amounts of knowledge very quickly. I am now prepared with the skills and confidence to begin serving the Veterans in my area, which is why I attended. The personal transformation I experienced, far exceeded the value of the performance skills received. - Robert Chula, BSN, MA, Akron, Ohio

I have a Master’s degree in Psychology and learned more about the mind, feelings and emotions in 10 days with Cal Banyan than in my 6 years of university education. I found my true self and life calling with Cal’s mentoring and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®. I will forever be grateful for being in his presence and learning from him. Cal Banyan is the teacher among teachers; and his 7th Path program transforms misconceptions into acceptance, self-love and growth. - Milly C. Lacle, M.S. N.D., Aruba

An amazing class! Intensive learning coupled with wonderful people! Cal & Maureen are wonderful, amazing support as we surprised ourselves with growth, spirit and creativity. By far, the best class I have attended, ever. I’ll be back for more! It was transformational. - David Wynn, CH, Allen, Texas

The description of this course sounds wonderful, had I known I would not only be learning the most efficient, powerful, logical form of hypnosis and that I would rid myself of years of emotional suffering, and learn how to love, REALLY love myself through 7th Path Self- Hypnosis®, I would have taken this course years ago.

Cal is more than just an instructor, he is a hero and a light in a world that desperately needs it. Don’t wait, take this course now! - Maya Terry-Blackburn, CH, Tumwater, Washington

This is an amazing course! It was so much more than I had expected and hoped for. Cal Banyan is the best instructor, knowledgeable, experienced, caring and always there with suggestions and tips on how to do it better. - David Vredenburg, CH, Glen Falls, New York

Well organized, detailed, each segment building on the next, giving you confidence to do the exercises.

Excellent supervised practice time to positive constructive criticism and supervision. Both the instructors, Cal and Maureen were very available to answer questions in class and after class.

No matter how experienced you think you are as a hypnotist, you cannot walk out of this course without a feeling of accomplishment and fine tuning of your hypnosis skills and techniques. Deborah Gilmour-Pangratz, Ph. D., Farmington, CT

Great course. Learnt a very practical hypnosis technique to help my clients with their emotional and behavioral problems. There are so many hypnosis courses out there, and it can be confusing to pick a good one. Good to learn from an instructor who is actually using this technique of age regression at his practice. It’s like learning from the master himself.

Instructions were presented in a friendly manner which made me comfortable to ask questions. All my questions were answered clearly, that made me have a better understanding. Also, the practice with other students, and getting feedback from instructors made it a highly beneficial experience. Amin Shah, Allston, MA

The age regression course taught by Cal Banyan was exceptional. I learned techniques that significantly increased my skills, abilities and confidence as a Hypnotist. What I’m taking away from this course will allow me to work effectively and profoundly with my clients. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to learn from Cal. His teaching is top notch. Lori Senuta, CH, RMT, Norwich, CT

This course was nice, I learned a lot and it complements the age regression study I had. I like the way it is taught, with the step by step modality and a lot of practice while Cal supervises us, and, also Maureen. Mylene Ourfali de Carciente, CH, Panama City, Panama

I really enjoyed the three-day Age Regression course. The contents were very informative, easy to follow and the induction very good. It was a nurturing way to the place the client into somnambulism. The [Cal’s] Vertical Model of the Mind is a very good explanation of how something has meaning and then transfers the emotions, feelings and behaviors in the subconscious mind.

Life changing course and a must for a hypnotist. Ann Paterson, Darling Point, NSW, Australia

Cal is the ultimate professional, tireless and enthusiastic in teaching at a high advanced level, based on his considerable experience and thought. It is a joy to work with Cal, who is thoroughly professional and an excellent teacher.

The part that the material being presented is a significant part proprietary to Cal makes it a wonderful learning experience. Chris Ryan, MBA, CH, Bellevue Hill, NSW, Australia

Cal Banyan is a passionate “bull dog” who wants you to “get it” - A courageous teacher, hypnotherapist and role model.

Amazed how organized the material is. I appreciate his careful attention to the fundamentals and building, building... The practice during this class is the missing piece I have been yearning for so that I can confidently move forward.

Thank you so much. Joan Koval, RN, CH, Anchorage, Alaska

Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. Instructor

After having completed two hypnosis certification classes prior to Banyan Hypnosis training, I can objectively say that the Banyan Program is transformative and professional. Personally, if other programs are “certificate” program, Banyan Hypnosis 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® certification is a Master’s program.

They teach more than hypnosis, they teach you how to start and build your practice into a professional career. Michael McNatt, MBA, Plano, Texas

This class is completely transforming on every level. As a professional, I have more confidence and determination. 5-PATH® is so efficient and effective, and the way Cal teaches, it is so experiential. You leave believing in the process and in your ability to implement it for your clients’ best results.

Personally, and spiritually, this class is capable of bringing unexpected changes which are completely life changing. I have never felt so Whole, so strong, so confident and so connected. I recommend this class to anyone who is serious about Hypnosis as a career and wants to help people make positive changes in their lives. Michelle Golinski, CH, Palm City, Florida

This class exceeded my expectations for both the depth and breadth of content presented, and my competence with the material upon graduation.

Thank you! Sharon Storton, MA, MS, Reg. Psychologist, Calgary, Canada

The instructor is one of the best I have ever had. His knowledge and passion he conveyed through the material was exceptional.
The course was transformational. 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is like nothing I have ever experienced. It’s sensational and life changing. Marie Bartram, D.C. Ed. CI, RMT, Sandwich, MA

While I originally thought I was here to learn to hypnotize people, I ended up transforming myself. I learned more about myself in 7 days than I ever thought possible. 7th Path Self-Hypnosis ® and 5-PATH® are powerful tools that will change your clients’ lives as well as your own. MaryAnn Simmons, RN, BSN, Plano, Texas

This workshop has been transformational for me. I signed up for this class because I had a good experience with a hypnotist 40 years ago. I wanted to make a career change and chose this class truly because the timing was right and close to my home.

But, this class gave me so much insight into myself. I laughed, I cried and was able to access the anger that I had bottled up inside me for years. This class has given me the tools to be a hypnotist that will allow me to really get to the meat and potatoes of my clients’ issues and they will also be able to experience this life changing process also. Paula Westerlund, Leander, Texas

A very powerful course for anyone interested in a career in hypnosis. This course is packed full of information and is structured in a way that allows you to build on the information you are learning and emerge from this course, confident and ready to be successful as a hypnotist.

Cal Banyan has immense knowledge and has put together an incredible course. Anyone who completes this training will be ready to work as a hypnotist. Brilliant! Tracy Wade, Owens Crossroads, Alabama

I have been following Cal Banyan through his website for a few years and had been interested in learning from him.

I thought I had an idea of what to expect after all that time, but, what I learned in class far exceeded what I could have guessed. I’ve looked into several hypnosis training programs, and I can’t imagine anything coming close to Cal Banyan and 5-PATH®. Get this training! Ken Dickinson, Denton, Texas

The class training from Cal Banyan was professional and high quality. He introduced 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self Hypnosis®. It was more than simple hypnosis training, it was life changing. Because of Cal Banyan, I know that I can have a successful business and be the professional I want to be. Rebeccca Townes, Red Oak, Texas

I have used many of your suggestions in my practice which was validating, but, am very aware that ‘Finishing’ my clients was absent in my practice. My reason for coming was to learn how to get to the ‘final’ to get ‘healed’. This is the Forgiveness Parts (FOO, FOS). I love the logic that you use, the consistency that I’ve seen you perform over the past few years. I like drill, drill, drill… The surprise for me was 7th Path. I also think I am biting my lip less and with less intensity. I want see if this continues to decrease. Jonathan Leaver, CH, N. Dartmouth, Massachusetts

I simply loved every minute of this class. Many years of experience definitely shows in the performance of this school – well organized, well thought through and extremely well taught by Cal Banyan. This class will teach you to be a master at your craft – Cal’s enthusiasm and expertise shines through and is completely infectious. I had already been qualified in Hypnosis, but, I knew that my education was incomplete. Little did I know how incomplete – I can now go back to my practice knowing that I am fully prepared to give my clients the best service with the confidence that will help me know that I have everything needed to be an excellent Hypnotist.

Thank you, Cal and Maureen for an unforgettable experience, it was a privilege to be a part of it. James Hood, Altadena, CA.

I had a great impression. The course is interesting, very structured, and effective. The material has been given in a very clear and easy way to understand. Larisa Ternova, M.A., Moscow, Russia

There is no comparison to this course. Cal Banyan is not only a master in his profession, but a performer and a wordsmith. Paying attention in class is done with ease, even for the most easily distracted student. I would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys being happy and successful. Wyatt Deane, Anaheim, CA.

Beyond my wildest expectations, this class prepares, entertains and transforms students. The course material is unique and thorough. However, the value in this class stems predominantly from the owner, you will learn from the best of the best. Cal’s teaching style inspires you to want to be him!

He’s intelligent to the degree that he has transformed the profession. If you want to have the learning experience of a lifetime, sign up! You will be pushed out of your comfort zone into a life-changing career. Linda Cummings, B.S., Huntington Beach, CA.

Cal is the best instructor I ever experienced! Wow! He is the congruency of congruence… the more he tell, the better you feel and the better you feel, the more you learn. I feel more confident – and I will open my clinic within one year. You gave me the tools and confidence to move forward in life. Thank you forever, Cal, and Maureen made the whole experience/course so holistic! Tobias Hamann-Pedersen, Denmark

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. When you are ready for an amazing teaching on how to practice or teach Hypnosis on the highest level available today, Cal Banyan is the one who has appeared. Are you ready? Monte Julian, Torrance, CA.

Learnt so much in so little time. Cal is amazing and knows how to create professionals. Very well structured training program with lots of hands-on practice, gets you going. Got much more than expected. Great program. Wish Cal and his team all the best. Anand Lal, M.Sc. Tustin, CA.

It is a super course! Very transformational and positive for the healing and growth of the mind power and soul. It really changed my view of life and I feel renewed in peace and with a higher motivation to help people through hypnotherapy. I think there is no greater satisfaction than helping someone else. Cal is a great professor, a great human with such positive vibes, I learned and absorbed a lot, thanks to his way of teaching. Manuel Somoza Pineda, Honduras

This class and course was a pleasant surprise! I had a great education and therapy at the same time. I was not aware that they mixed mind, body, and spirit! I thought it was going to be sterile and uptight – was I surprise when it wasn’t! I am an artist and it was the best career move for me! Give it a chance – it’s only 2 weeks for the course, but, the use is for a lifetime! David Contreras, A.S. San Pedro, CA.

I learned more than what I initially signed up for. The instructors were excellent. The course is very structured and learning become very easy to digest even for a person with limited English, like me. Juliana Nogueira, Laguna Hills, CA.

This is a super course, motivational, transforming, must learn course! Cal Banyan is such a good instructor and attentive. He teaches professionally and makes sure we understand what he teaches. He is patient and caring. Mike Chong Kheng Wah, Singapore

I saw the Ultimates 1-5 course announced and immediately knew I wanted to move forward with my 7th Path practice. I didn’t know what to expect, but, from the beginning, it blew me away. The continuity with 5-PATH® and the 9 Recognitions of 7th Path made it so significant that there is no turning back! Cal as usual has all the time to care for his students and time to share his wisdom and knowledge. Wonderful! Cat Thomas, CH, Palm Springs, CA.

Cal Banyan is a genius in esoteric/spiritual phenomena, but, it comes in layers. If you’re only looking to become the best hypnotist, that’s what you will learn. If you are ready to have your heart chakra blasted open, that will occur… and beyond. If you have done 7th Path – do this. Amazing! Marilyn Sjaastad, MS, MA, CH, Bismarck, North Dakota

If you are a 7th Path teacher, this class is a must-do. If you have taken 7th Path, this course is life changing. It will help you find your true self and your true path in life.

Thank you so very much, Cal! Vaughn Brotton, BS, CH, Diamond Bar, CA.

Cal is extremely knowledgeable about the subject but is also a tremendous facilitator with regards to helping people process their insights, emotions and thoughts that come up while learning the Ultimate recognitions.

It’s nice to have the structure and time to really spend with each new recognition. It is obviously a very quick way to learn all 5 at once, but, I felt the class did provide enough to me to begin to learn them and experience their benefits. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to further their 7th Path practice after learning all the full recognitions. Darwin Gillett, MJW, LICSW, CH, Boston, MA

I love 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®, but the Ultimate Recognitions brought 7th Path to a whole new level for me. I connected to the Ultimate Recognitions immediately and it brought me an awareness I thought was not even possible for me. I did not think that 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® can have so much more to offer to me, but, after I learnt these Ultimates 1-5, it did! Thanks, Cal – I loved it and I look forward to getting the Ultimates 6-9! Martina Berger, PhD, CH, Newport Beach, CA.
