Getting Into Trance - The Elman Induction

Thursday, February 25, 2021 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Workshop fee: $15/person.  Pre-registration is required.  Buy your tickets HERE.

If you’ve been to Max’s Intimate Hypnosis workshops or seen a hypno demo at an All The Demos event, you’ve probably seen an Elman Induction.

Named after Dave Elman, the Elman Induction is a reliable way to invite your subject into trance. It’s composed of five pieces, each of which could reasonably be considered an induction by itself. It’s consistently effective for almost everyone.

When you leave this workshop you’ll be ready to do your first induction. We’ll discuss and demo a full Elman Induction, dissect it and discuss the parts, then send you away with a handout and the experience necessary to get started.

Workshop structure 

This class focuses on building confidence doing Elman inductions. It includes discourse, demonstrations, and opportunities for solo or paired practice. Note that the practice does NOT require that you have a partner.

As we frame up the class we’ll discuss negotiation, appropriate consent models, and aftercare as they relate to hypno scenes.

As always with Max’s classes, there’ll be a handout to facilitate your learning and your ability to practice after the workshop.

This is the second of a four-part hypno series, offered on the 4th Thursday. 

Who should attend?

There are no prerequisites for attendance. Everyone is welcome.

While this content is aimed squarely at folks who want to be hypnotists, subjects will also find it interesting and useful. It’s your mind that’s being played with - you should have the best possible understanding of how this works.

This workshop assumes no previous BDSM or hypnosis experience and is appropriate for all genders, all orientations, and for both tops and bottoms.


Attendees will receive a handout full of principles, safety information, basic technique, and resources.

Max also offers private hypnosis sessions and private coaching as you build your skill as a hypnotist or subject. These sessions are completely customized to meet your needs and desires. Contact Max to discuss these offerings.

Cancellation / refund policy

If you need to cancel your registration up to 2 hours before the event you will receive a full refund.
