This book describes an entirely new way of conducting hypnotherapeutic interventions gipligan Stephen Gilligan’s generative stepyen.

The first generation of trance work, the stepgen hypnosis that still holds sway in most places, considers that both the conscious mind and the unconscious mind of geneeative client are, to put it bluntly, idiots. So trance work involves first ‘knocking out’ the conscious mind and then talking to the unconscious mind like a 2-year old that needs to be told how to behave.

Milton Erickson created the second generation of trance work. He approached the unconscious as having creative wisdom and each person as extraordinarily unique. Thus, rather than trying to programme the unconscious with new instructions, Erickson saw trance as an experiential learning state where a person’s own creative unconscious could generate healing and transformation.

At the same time Erickson, for the most part, carried the same low opinion of the conscious mind. Thus, Ericksonian hypnosis looks to bypass the conscious mind with indirect suggestions and dissociation and depotentiate it with confusion techniques. Read more Read less.

Editorial Reviews Review There is a trajce taking place in psychotherapy that sheds the limitations of naive models of therapy and change. Stephen Gilligan is one of the most important leaders in this transformation of practice, particularly as it applies to hypnosis. His publication marks a major advance in helping us resourcefully relate to all that clients and therapists bring to a session.

I enthusiastically recommend it to both your conscious and unconscious mind! His new book Generative Trance delivers a tour-de-force of the latest thinking of third-generation hypnosis in a charming and organized way. This is the definitive overview of a new approach in psychotherapy and change work. I continue to learn from Gilligan and look forward to returning to this book again and again to gain even deeper insights. Stephen Gilligan, PhD, has become a leading figure in Ericksonian hypnotherapy.

Generative Trance: Third Generation Trance Work

Sometimes I get emotionally disconnected and I can feel the difference. The usual response is to dissociate from the pain which only ends up making things worse. As a Meditator this book has immensely helped with that. I’m no expert but there’s a big difference between the way I feel when I apply the techniques in this book on a daily basis.

The generative and creative learnings from this book have permeated everything I do. It has enhanced my ability to enter a creative state. It helped me improve my speaking and humor by teaching me how to connect with and resonate between the flow of ideas in the mind and sensations in the body. This is probably the most new age platitude I could say, but this book teaches you to expand your awarenes- but only if you take the time to work with it- don’t just read it.

Actually do the stuff a bunch of times too because that’s how people who aren’t prodigal savants learn stuff. All this has helped me achieve a much deeper mind-body connection which has expanded my creative awareness.

If you’ve read the power of now by eckhart tolle, then you’ll notice this book hits some similar oncepts but from a much more process oriented perspective. The style of writing is softer and some things are left open to interpretation. This may be a negative for people who prefer step by step systems.

Not that that’s a bad thing, it’s just that like any good book it needs a little more from you to get the full benefit. I look forward to reading some of Stephen’s other books because this one was phenomenal enough that I wrote a dissertation for a review. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

I have had the privilege of attending a week of Steve’s annual Trance Camp, and many of the concepts and exercises in gillligan book were familiar.

Having this text helped deepen my understanding of and connection with these france, and added a conceptual framework that wasn’t as clear in the moment. For anyone who has not been exposed to Steve’s approach to therapy gendrative trance, this is a deceptively simple and lucid introduction to his core ideas and techniques.

It offers a powerful approach not only to traance others, but to living a more creative, mindful, and generative life. I highly recommend it to all students and practitioners. A pure joy to come across this amazing presentation of an approach to trance that is well reasoned and offered in a logical, clear writing style.


There is so much depth and insight from a master clinician here. I am reading it a second time, and I almost never re-read books. I wish I could memorize almost every juicy bit of wisdom the author offers. I’ve enjoyed listening to Stephen Gilligan’s trances on audio and the rationale given in this book is clear.

I sometimes find the use of words such as “quantum” and “creative unconscious” and the diagrams to be a little pseudo-scientific.

However, having said that, the trances do work in achieving a state that is quite different to traditional hypnosis. I’m half way through the book the second time yes, it is definitely worth a second read and am picking up a lot more. I followed up on some of his references and the science behind this area is considerably more controversial than the book would imply. Perhaps science is behind the curve because there is no doubt that Gilligan has provided a very fine blend of principles from Ericksonian hypnosis, aikido and other areas even if it doesn’t all quite make sense at a rational level.

I think that he describes the ego level of consciousness as “awareness without wholeness”. That is probably the level of my current understanding: Great book, the one I will return to very often.

As a hypnotherapist – this tranxe has allowed me to take my clients to strphen they have not yet been. I’ve been doing changework with NLP and hypnosis since Never, before this book, has anyone even alluded to the concepts that are within these pages. I can scarcely wait to see what Stephen Gilligan will do next with generative trance If you’re interested in hypnotherapy, or just want to feel more whole, alive and at peace, therecis a treasure trove in these words.
