I absolutely love Dr. Kappas' story! It gives me the drive and motivation I need on my hardest, most challenging days as a mother of 4 and a student. Thank you Dr. Kappas for paving the way for all of us to come.

I loved this class with George! He brings humor and depth to how Dr. Kappas started, his struggles and his victories. Every successful person experiences adversity and the grit exercised during times of adversity defines their ultimate success. Knowing that Dr. Kappas even lost his passion for a time and seeing that his path was not neatly carved out breathes life into my sails. There are no detours in life and this video captures that sentiment.

Great lesson! It was enjoyable to hear about Dr. John Kappas' family background and life story. I feel a loss that I will never have the opportunity to meet him; yet his son does a wonderful job recounting his life! We are fortunate; however, to have access to countless videos in the Atlanta Series.

Loved this lesson. I loved hearing about Dr. John Kappas. It's very beautiful and helpful to see how one struggles with doubt and doesn't give up and succeeds beyond their own expectations at the beginning of starting something. I plan to do the very same with me life. I've been told I'm not good enough my whole life and ever since I started believing I am, my life is changed. I am in love with this school and all that it stands for.

This was a wonderful insight to how this theory of hypnosis was created, and it really shows the ripple effects of how the current current staff members teach that are at HMI.

Wow! It was a really great and informative ride through history! Wonderful to know the road to success for Dr. John Kappas! Also liked learning a little bit about George Kappas as a child and how his father treated him. Great to learn the history and birth of my college HMI. Filled in all the blanks. Wonderful presentation! I learned so much from George in his mock session! So clearly stated and shown. All came together in my brain. Thank you so much!

This is such a great class! It’s one of my favorites. George is such a great story teller, and tells the story of his family so well. This class helps me to understand where Dr. Kappas came up with his theories and the way he taught. Knowing his background helps to have an understanding that his path was not an easy one, yet it yielded great results for himself and his clients.

This lesson was very helpful to me. I wish this video had been included in the first week's lecture requirements right after the very first video as I feel it explains the suggestibility and hypnotherapy process better than the other videos!
