Generative Trance is designed for those interested in exploring human potential, creativity and change.

Generative Trance is seen primarily as a naturalistic learning state that occurs from within, not an artificial state created or controlled by an outside "hypnotist."

Generative Trance sees each trance as an experiment in consciousness and shows how trance skills can allow those experiments to lead to many new patterns.

The goal is to learn how to create a Generative Self-capable of transforming one's life in many powerful ways.

Generative Trance Certification comprises of two 6-day courses, available to study in Australia in February 2020, they are 'Generative Trance: A Process for Sustainable Creativity' and 'Generative Trance: A Method for Deep Identity Change'.
