Episode 84 – Featuring Craig Sigl

Adam interviews Craig Sigl

Craig Sigl

This week’s ‘Hypnosis in the news’ section addresses several stories whereby it has been claimed that hypnosis was used to rob individuals, Adam has plenty to say on this as you regular listeners are likely to expect.

This week’s discussion with Craig Sigl examines the topic of sports hypnosis and Craig shares elements of his own approach as well as being generous with advice for hypnotherapists looking to work in the sports hypnosis field.

The fact of the week refers to a fascinating study that explored the use of self-hypnosis in radiological procedures.

    What were the books referenced in this PC?

    Is there a top 10 or 20 of books mentioned in all your PC’s Adam?

      Hi Wayne,

      Craig specifically referred to:
      Super-learning (1979) by Sheila Ostrander, Lynn Schroeder, Nancy Ostrander and Psychocybernetics (1960) by Maxwell Maltz and the The Power of The Subconscious Mind (1963) by Joseph Murphy – he spoke about the reasons these had influenced him so much in the podcast, it is well worth tuning in and giving it a good listen to put them in the context of this episode and their meaning to Craig.

      And in answer to your second question, there is not really a top 10 of books consistently mentioned, no. There have been quite a few that are repeatedly mentioned, but for a wide array of different reasons – some are just mentioned because they opened doors or got someone more curious or the guest became aware because of the commercial success of the book although it led them to something else that was a bigger personal influence.

      Best wishes to you, Adam.

        Hi Adam,

        Thank you for the books detailed in this podcast.

        It would be interesting to look at book choices over the past 100 episodes (when you get there) and see how these choices influence or relate to the niche or market of the interviewee?

        Thinking aloud,

    Great podcast, Craig’s enthusiasm is contagious!
    I am looking at Dc Sarno’s book on back pain and mind body connection and I see several, which one was recommended in the podcast ?

    • Adam Eason says:

      Thanks Alain,
      I’m sorry, Craig was not specific in the podcast about which particular book or edition he was referring to by John E. Sarno, so if you wanted to know which one in particular he was referring to, you might want to whizz him an email, he is very helpful and receptive, he’ll be delighted to help, I’m sure.

      With my very best wishes to you, Adam.
