Here Stanley Krippner describes how he was inspired to learn hypnosis as a child by reading the “Mandrake the Magician” comic books. He describes how trickery can be used to augment the efficacy of hypnosis. He notes that hypnosis is a powerful tool that can be used to improve study habits, overcome addictive behaviors, help heal diseases, and even improve ESP performance. He differentiates between hypnosis and suggestion as well as between hypnosis and meditation. He also points out that there is a spectrum of hypnotic trance states.

He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities.
