Journal of Experiential Trance new issue now online!

The newest issue of the JOURNAL OF EXPERIENTIAL TRANCE is now available for within the issues archive at

The J.E.T. is an Open Community Multi-Discipline Peer-Reviewed Journal of Hypnosis, Neurolinguistic Programming, Guided Meditation, and other Focused Trance Forms.

It is published online by the Society of Experiential Trance - – in online and print format. Membership in the Society is NOT required to submit and article or to participate in the Journal community at large.

The current issue of the J.E.T. can be found in the issue archives at - it is freely downloadable in pdf format by S.E.T. members while non-members can order print copies or digital downloads via the outreach access program.  So feel free to point folks to the link to access a number of very interesting articles and essays related to hypnosis by a number of highly respected hypnosis practitioners. Like the hypnosis community, the focus of the articles in the J.E.T. represent a very wide range of interests. The current – Jan. 2010, v2.n1 – issue includes the following:

  • Get the Most Out of Positive Thinking: How to Create Effective Affirmations by Sheilah Davis
  • The Form of Woohoo by Philip H. Farber
  • Tranceplay Revisited: Experiential Trance and Interactive Drama by Brian David Phillips

  • Trance and Transformation by Sylvia Brallier
  • How Does Hypnosis Work? by Jon Rhodes
  • Fairy Dragon Magick Egg Trance Pattern by Brian David Phillips

Obviously, membership in the Society is never required to have your work considered for publication in the journal. Society members do receive Continuing Education Credits for publication in the Journal of Experiential Trance.

Feel free to snarf a copy of the 2.1 (Jan. 2010) issue now via the issues archive link at  SET members have free access to download current or past issues as part of their membership benefits.  The link to the webpage for members-only is included in the Society of Experiential Trance Newsletter – if you are an SET member but do not receive the newsletter then email me with your full name, email address, SET membership certification number, and expiration date and I will make sure you are subscribed (assuming you are a member in good standing).

As the journal has a revolving publication schedule, submissions are accepted at any time. When a submission is received, it is immediately placed into the review process. Pieces are published based upon time of acceptance and space within the current issue on a first-come first-served basis so that they are routed to the first available publication slot upon acceptance. The only exception to this general principle is theme issues as they occur (most issues are open-theme).  So, feel free to submit your contribution NOW.

Thank you to all the folks who submitted to the premiere issue . . . now . . . for those of you who have not yet submitted your ideas, thoughts, or techniques . . . we look forward to YOUR submission and your participation in this open hypnosis community outreach and development effort (Society of Experiential Trance membership, encouraged, but NOT required).

All the best,
