Trance Camp Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Are Meals Included?

    No, but there are snacks each morning (bagels, coffee/tea, fruit), as well as during breaks.

  • Are there CEUs (continuing education unit) available?

    NCEUs are for California MFTs. These may be applicable to other licenses; you would need to check with your licensing board.

  • Can you describe a few applications I will be able to apply the training??

    You will learn how to develop generative trance states in yourself and others. This will help you understand and learn how to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct psychological identity and realities; in other words, to create states for transformation, healing, and creating significantly new realities..

  • Every day starts with optional yoga and in the evening there are optional evening presentations (e.g..special topics, drumming, “trance follies” night).
