What is the Enneagram?
    The subject of several recent best-selling books, the Enneagram is a fascinating, powerful system of psychology that describes the nine personality styles that human beings most favor.  Newcomers to the Enneagram are often amazed to find clear, accurate portraits of themselves and most everyone they know. Therapists often find the Enneagram a stunningly swift diagnostic tool that enables them to see how surface problems reflect deeper patterns and central lifethemes. Thomas Condon has authored a number of books and CDs on the Enneagram's potential for creating change.

About Multi-Evocation CDs:

    Our CDs are widely considered to be the very best of their kind. Over 100,000 have been sold and many find them to be a valuable personal and professional resource. The CDs use Ericksonian Hypnosis, NLP, stereo voices, metaphorical environments, and elaborate sound effects.

Ericksonian Hypnosis
    Ericksonian Hypnosis, also called "the new hypnosis," is at once powerful and gentle. Based on the pioneering work of Milton Erickson, this style of hypnosis is open-ended, indirect, and respectful of the listener.
    Our CDs offer lots of positive suggestions and techniques for you to choose freely. Our CDs definitely won't tell you what to do. Instead, they assume your intelligence and integrity and speak to the best in you. The hypnotic messages are offered in a way that evokes powerful unconscious resources that you already have. We respect and trust your unconscious mind to do the rest in a way that's appropriate for your personality and needs. You can use our CDs in different ways at different times according to changing desires.

Multiple Voices
    Most Changeworks Cassettes feature two stereo voices speaking simultaneously during hypnosis. This is an innovative method which works especially well for rapid, easy trance induction and to help the analytical thinking mind to let go. The voices weave together in a musical way and the scripts use multiple levels of language including puns, poetry and wordplay.

Metaphorical Environments
    Multi-Evocation CDs are made to be involving, entrancing, and fun to use. Each CD is as different as possible from the next to give them greater value. Like old time radio dramas, many have plots in which you are a participant, taking part in an internal adventure that brings forth new powers.
    Most of our CDs take place within metaphorical environments. Many are set in peaceful places in the natural world - a tropical island, a forest with a stream, a mountain meadow, a desert oasis, an inland sea.
    Other CDs involve journeys to magical places like the Center of Time, the Secret Garden, a Crystal Dome. Humor Power! takes you to meet the World Council of Comedians and Humorists while Deep Sleep & Sweet Dreams takes you on an overnight train trip on the Starlight Express.
 
Special Effects
    Most of our CDs have elaborate special effects and use highly refined recording techniques. They feature 3-Dimensional Sound ó specially processed effects that sound like they are actually happening in your presence. Listeners report that the lifelike sound quality puts them more fully into their hypnotic experience.
    Multi-Evocation CDs are meant to be interesting enough to listen to often. Many self-help CDs promise miracles but are dull to listen to and deliver little.  Often our customers report that they find new levels of meaning in our CDs even after months or years of use.
    We work very hard to pack as much into our CDs as possible. This means the best that NLP and the ìnew hypnosisî has to offer plus many useful and proven techniques to choose from. You can be assured of the quality and value of our products and we will back them with a 60 day unconditional money back guarantee.

   "Multi-Evocation cassettes by Tom Condon and Carol Erickson are some of the most effecive and skillfully produced CDs we have experienced. Each CD features gentle, open-ended and indirect suggestions in the style of Milton Erickson, as well as two voices speaking simultaneously during hypnosis. Highly Recommended." - Interface Holistic Review


   "Here is a new approach to hypnosis cassettes: a process called Multi Evocation. I have listened to many subliminal CDs and believed this CD to be just that when I sat down to review it. However I was in for a surprise.
   "Multi Evocation is a unique process, different from other hypnosis
CDs. The listener hears two voices speaking in hushed tones, individually, as well as together. Sometimes they speak in sequence and sometimes simultaneously. Throughout, sounds of nature blend with the voices.
   "Side A gives the listener a precise description of the method and purpose of Multi Evocation hypnosis and how the process works. Side B is for using and experiencing the process. It is fun, enjoyable and the participant quickly becomes very involved. At first, I was definitely aware of the two voices speaking and I was trying to listen to what each was saying, even when speaking simultaneously.
   "Shortly, however, something else took over and I began to experience the
CD rather than analyze it. That is when some very interesting feelings took place. I was aware, not of what was being said, but rather, the subtle messages of the CD; it actually relaxed me and I became unaware of what was going on, yet at the same time, and particularily when it was over, I felt tremendously energized and full of empowerment....a most unusual experience!" - Chloe Robinson, The New Times

   "Thomas Condon and Carol Erickson developed Multi-Evocation CDs based on Milton Erickson's hypnotic patterns and language usage. The CDs use two or more voices with special effects, including nature sounds and music. What appeals to me most about the CDs is their skillful composition and orchestration, they way they combine metaphors and hypnotic messages with clever timing and rhythmic voices. The use of other sounds fits naturally within this framework. As I listened, I noticed that these additional sounds, just at the edge of my awareness, complementing and enhancing the messages of the voices.

   "On Side A of Natural Self Confidence, Tom and Carol develop a context for the safe use of the CD, offering the listener important information about hypnosis. They sound kind and respectful as they propose various ways for the listener to comfortably experience and best use Side B.

   "Side B best is a beautiful orchestral composition. The voices weave back and forth -- sometimes together, sometimes in sequence, like trees gently swaying in the breeze. There are so many levels of communication that it would take repeated listenings to recognize them all. But this depth and hypnotic complexity allows each listener to make changes in ways that are most useful to them.

   "When a fine musician performs, they make the most difficult work appear easy to their audience. The artist who creates this sense of ease has spent many hours in preparation, perfecting details and shaping the music's overall form. Later, each listener may have the sense that the musician is performing especially for them. On Natural Self Confidence, Carol and Tom attain exactly these results." - Nancy L. Beplat, Rapporter Magazine

   "Very unusual, highly effective hypnosis CDs. On Side A everything is explained -- hypnosis itself, particularly Ericksonian hypnosis, and multievocation, which is a brilliant synthesis of hypnosis, multiple voices, metaphorical environments and other special effects.
   "The multiple voices are fascinating - several voices speaking at once, creating a compelling chant, a rapid, familiar sound that helps us forget everyday singularity. Side B has only multievocation environments, voices overlapping, logic merging in and out of illogic, yielding a multidimensional atmosphere.
   "These cassettes can be used over and over again. Those overlapping voices have some very deep effects."
- Bookreader

   "The Ericksonian CDs, based on the pioneering work of Dr. Milton H. Erickson, use a multi-voice style of hypnosis that is gentle, open-ended and indirect. Deep Sleep & Sweet Dreams offers a penetrating and soothing method for overcoming insomnia, as well as simply a more refreshing night's sleep.
   "
Natural Self Confidence is truly magical with messages of inner confidence, problem solving and inspiration. With the compassionate and warm voices of Carol Erickson and Thomas Condon, these highly recommended cassettes nourish one's growth at the deepest levels." - Leading Edge Review
