Presented by

Ryan Jenkins

In the 1980’s the presenter´s mother was an anthropologist who discovered a ¨lost¨ indigenous tribe in Papua New Guinea (where he was born and raised). The speaker witnessed how traditional healers used hypnotic techniques such as story telling to affect physical, psychological healing as well as preventative healthcare.

In the presentation the speaker will speak about first hand experiences and draw parallels between these techniques and methods that are currently taught in hypnosis schools around the world.

Ryan is a hypnotherapist and changeworker based in Barcelona, Spain. His first experiences with non-traditional ways of healing came very early on in life when his Mother discovered a “lost” indigenous tribe in Papua New Guinea. Ryan witnessed first hand how tribal healers used forms of ¨Trance¨ to heal people. This profoundly influenced the course of his life. This led to a deep study and practice of meditation and self-hypnosis, hypnosis, NLP and personal development."
