There was a lot and they were all varied somewhat. It’s hard to tell why Dr. Kappas does what he does with so much variety.

The amount of repetition was great. I found it difficult at times to not go into trance myself, so I watched it over several sessions. I found it helpful in seeing the process.

It was enlightening to see the variations of techniques Dr. Kappas utilizes, especially when the induction is taking longer than usual. He always keeps calm and in control, which is inspiring and the various hand positions and finger touches were new to me.

The quiz was quite challenging. I loved watching Dr. Kappas in his element, and how patient he was with the few that took so long to raise their arms. Super inspiring!

This needs to be broken up into sections, it is a LOT to retain before taking a quiz... but it's so amazing. I am so grateful for Dr. John Kappas and his work and this school... WOW!

This was a very intense and in-depth elective! I have so many more questions now after seeing all the subtle differences in Dr. Kappas' inductions. (And most of the questions to which I have no answers are on the quiz!) This class demonstrated to me that I don't necessarily understand everything on which I thought was clear.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Dr. Kappas preforming the arm raising technique on a variety of subjects. I do wish that there was more commentary to point out all the details in each video so as to make sure the student can fully absorb all this great content.

It was really helpful to watch these arm raises multiple times. I started in the beginning of my program and kept going into hypnosis! But watching them now has been very helpful to see the finesse used and the keen observation of the clients going in.

Love it! I can watch these all day! I thoroughly enjoy watching these old videos with Dr. John Kappas. Watching 34 clips of how each client goes into the arm raising and how Dr. Kappas performs each is truly priceless. Going to start the Atlanta Series next and will take my time - thank you HMI for offering these wonderful courses!

These videos are a true treasure. The arm raising induction is such an essential part of the work we do, and to see Dr. Kappas at work with this induction really gives a whole new perspective for me.

Arm Raising with Dr. Kappas is a treasure-trove of archived resources (video and workbook) that not only illustrate the concept of "repetitio est mater memoriae," but the artful adaptation of the induction to changing conditions, situations and observations, ultimately leading to successful conversion. I will be returning to these sessions frequently as my awareness and skills grow. I must confess that in reviewing the episodes, there was a tendency for me to think about the scene from Blade Runner where Deckard administered the fictional Voight-Kampf test at Tyrell Headquarters to elicit physiological and psychological changes, realizing of course, that science fiction is built upon science fact as evidenced through the Arm Raising Induction.

Well these were quite interesting to watch one after another. However, the reasons Dr. Kappas did a certain thing is not as obvious to me. Would have been great to have commentary or the workbook explain why he did something to help in our learning.

It was good to review the questions. Since most examples were quite the same I wonder about all the other questions/answers, see the relations between those and E&P types.

I truly enjoyed watching this series. Narrowing down on just the arm raising made me notice other things within the process and the clients that I had not previously noticed when I watched the Atlanta Series. Thank you!

It was good to see multiple examples of the arm raise induction, I would have appreciated some notes on what to look for or how to understand the client responses to hypnosis during each session.
