Difficult Subjects in Hypnosis – Wicked Grounds Mar 2, 6p PST/9pm EST

Wicked Grounds Logo

Sign up now $15 for basic discounted ticket, $25 and $35 support tickets. 

Anyone can be hypnotized. But not everyone experiences the state that they want. We’ll look at concrete methods, including direct and inferential suggestion, of working with subjects who seem lowly or non-responsive to traditional inductions to achieve a hypnotic state. We’ll also cover some issues or characteristics that may make hypnosis more difficult. This class is not a challenge and we cannot promise to hypnotize everyone, but we can give useful insights on how to be most effective with subjects who have a hard time achieving a traditional state.

Time

  • Tues Feb 16th 6p PST / 7p MST / 8p CST /9p EST
    Wed Feb 17 2a GMT and BST / 3am CET / 1p AEDT / 3p NZDT

Dark Side of Hypnosis @ Wicked Grounds – Jan 20

Dark Side of Hypnosis
9-11pm EST –  6:00p PST / 7:00p MST / 8:00p PM CST 
Wednesday, Jan 20

Visions of erotic violence or sinister control dominate our movies and fantasies. From chainsaw disembowelment to death to formative sexual trauma, many of our most delicious fantasies are unsafe or inaccessible. While we may visit these things under the aegis of “pathworking” or “ritual,” one of the most direct and controllable forms of visualization is too often off the table. Learn the use of hypnosis to go with malice aforethought into those dark recesses only touched before, and take edgeplay further than the physical. Note that this is a workshop about brutal edgeplay, not about healing psychic trauma. Learn techniques for transferring pain, creating artificial sensation, and controlling orgasm. While we will discuss how to create informed consent for this type of mental play, this is not an ethics workshop and it may involve references or demonstrations centering on psychic trauma which may be disturbing.

Being Barbie: Hypnotic Dollification
6-8pm EST  (3p PST, 4p MST, 5p CST)
Friday Jan 15, 2021, Room 5

Do you want to be made into a doll? Does dressing up get you hot? Is objectification one of your kinks? Do you dream of being played with? Or maybe you’re interested in owning the most versatile of toys? Whatever your interest, dollification fetish presents a myriad of opportunities to explore kink in fun new ways. In this class we will explore what dollification is, the dynamics that can exist between an Owner and a doll, potential types of doll play, and useful tools and resources for building a better doll, with an emphasis on hypnotic techniques. The class will work together to brainstorm which types of doll play interest them, share past experiences and background with doll play, and explore potential scenes through hands-on activities involving props and costuming provided by the presenters. No prior experience is necessary to participate in any of the class activities.

Consent in Hypnosis
3-5pm EST  (12p PST, 1p MST, 2p CST) 
Saturday Jan 16, Room 2

Consent is a hot issue. From college campuses to local kink communities, consent is being actively discussed, and new understandings of how it relates to sexual interaction are evolving. Over the past five years concepts of consent have been explored in many communities on many levels. Hypnosis involves strong elements of control and behavioral change. We investigate principles of informed consent, and sources for standards, as well as offering concrete checklists and tools to aid in developing your own framework for consent in hypnotic play. Note that this is not a basic Consent 101 class, but focuses on consent in relation to hypnosis.

Hypnosis can be a starting point for Roleplay, but there are more ways to use it than stage theatrics. Many elements of traditional “method” acting bear a strong relation to hypnosis. We start by dressing up, but called on to play the role of the dastard or the damsel in distress we often feel ludicrous or self-conscious. Learn techniques for combining hypnosis with Roleplay to help yourself others achieve better roleplay both in and out of state.

Hypnosis 101

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at 6:00-8:00 PM PDT

It’s not uncommon for people new to hypnosis to find themselves dependent on scripts written by others, or a magic charm like induction that works…sometimes, though they don’t understand why. Hypnosis is a science and it can be broken down into its components. In our 101 you’ll learn the building blocks necessary to hypnotize successfully every time, and be able to write your own scripts and inductions. It’s a lot easier than you think. We cover consent in hypnosis, how to create a hypnotic modality, types of suggestibility, and the components of a hypnotic induction!

NOTE: This will be an online class via Zoom. Zoom information will be sent to all participants one hour before the event.

To be “fully controlled” or to control is a passionate desire so common that no personal ad is complete without it, but talking about the actual techniques of mind control and brainwashing is forbidden mental edgeplay. We’ll look at BDSM “myths” as well as the realities of changing the way the brain works – forever. Subtle and invisible, mind control leaves a permanent mark that is the mental equivalent of branding. We’ll focus on understanding positive and negative reinforcement, drivers, and the extinction of behaviors, leaving you with a clear understanding of the mechanisms behind using both reward and punishment to create permanent change in the human mind.
