Peter Blum and Dr. Bunny

Peter Blum and Dr. Bunny

Peter Blum, Hypnotherapist and Musician, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss hypnotherapy and the healing powers of music.  A truly uplifting interview!

Peter lives in Woodstock, New York, where he maintains a private practice in neo-Ericksonian hypnosis, and shamanic sound healing. As a Certified Instructor for the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) since 1993, he has trained and certified hundreds in the art of hypnosis. In 2004, Peter was named Certified Instructor of the Year by the NGH, the largest professional organization of its type in the world.

After completing extensive study of the world’s major spiritual traditions, Peter was ordained as an Interfaith Minister in the seminary program of the Foundation for the Living Earth in 1995. He considers the practice of hypnotherapy to be a spiritual art form.

Known for his humorous and engaging presentation skills, he has been a popular lecturer, trainer, and seminar leader for the NGH, International Medical and Dental Hypnosis Association (IMDHA), The International Hypnosis Federation (IHF), as well as offering numerous programs for schools, prisons, hospitals, mental health and substance abuse counselors, and personal growth programs. In 2002, the IHF honored Peter with the Award of Excellence in Integrative Therapies.
Influences & Teachers

The son of an operatic baritone, Peter has had a life-long love affair with music, and has been involved in the study and practice of sound-healing since the mid 70’s. Since 1999, he has released 6 CD’s in the Sounds for Healing series, mostly featuring the extraordinary sounds of the Himalayan Singing Bowls – either played solo, or in concert with other trance-inducing instruments (including spoken healing meditations).

He is grateful to all his teachers and mentors in hypnosis: Richard A. Zarro (with whom he co-authored The Phone Book: How to Use NLP on the Telephone); Dr. Paul Carter, Steve Goldstein and Annie Linden of the NY Training Institute; Dr. Ernest Rossi, and currently Dr. Lewis Mehl-Madrona (with whom he also studies Coyote Medicine).

Music and sound healing teachers include Dr. Karl Berger, Ustad Jamaluddin Bhartiya, Pauline Oliveros, Fabian Mamman, Jill Purse, David Hykes, Professor Odserin, and Native American shaman Beautiful Painted Arrow (Joseph Rael).

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is a Hawaiian Dolphin Retreat? Belinda Farrell, Guest

Belinda Farrell and Dr. Bunny

Belinda Farrell and Dr. Bunny

Belinda Farrell, B.A., C.M.T., joins Dr. Bunny to discuss a variety of fascinating topics – Hawaiian Dolphin Retreats, her amazing experience with dolphins, being a Huna Practioner, Past Life Regression and so much more!  A great interview you don’t want to miss!

As a Certified Master Hypnotherapist, NLP Master Practitioner, Huna Practitioner, and Reconnective Healing Practitioner, Belinda is effective at getting results and enhancing performance in people’s lives.  She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a B.A. in English and Spanish.  After obtaining a Lifetime Elementary Teaching Credential at Cal State at LA, she taught third grade for five years in Puerto Rico and Los Angeles.  She played the character Snow White at Disneyland, was a TV News Reporter for KABC Channel 7 in Hollywood and worked on the staff of Senator Charles H. Percy (Illinois) in Washington, D.C.

Belinda trained with Anthony Robbins (author of Unlimited Power and Awaken the Giant Within), and has effectively used these skills in her own life.  In addition to firewalking, (18 times), Belinda was a professional Precision Stunt Car Driver for TV commercials and films.  Her credits include ads for Buick, Cadillac, BMW, Volvo, Nintendo, Audi, Toyota, Lexus, AC Delco Spark Plugs and many more.  She was a film and stage actress, having co-starred on the TVseries Midnight Caller, in addition to making dozens of industrial films, commercials and voice-overs.  Belinda is the mother of two grown children, loves to “workout”, bicycle, rollerblade, snow ski, and just be healthy and have fun.”

Belinda received her training in HUNA on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Huna means “secret” and the secrets were hidden in the chants.  The ancient Hawaiian chants became part of her life.  They bring down the Higher Self (Aumakua/5th Dimension) that is in all of us.  These ancient healing techniques flourished at a time when there was no mental illness on the islands, before the missionaries arrived.  “As a Huna Practitioner, I’ve been ordained to bring back these ancient healing secrets.  Inner empowerment is our birthright. 
We are all powerful spiritual beings, connected as one.”

Fifteen years ago, Belinda collapsed with herniated discs, spinal nerve damage and paralysis.  She was told by medical doctors that she wouldn’t walk again without surgery.  Instead, she utilized the ancient Hawaiian healing techniques and completely recovered within days.  Even the scoliosis she was born with…disappeared.  She retired from stunt car driving and began teaching these healing modalities full time.

Overcoming a lifelong fear of water, Belinda guided groups for 10 years to the Big Island of Hawaii to teach Huna and swim with wild spinner dolphins.  Swimming with the wild dolphins of Hawaii reconfirmed the connection to the 5th Dimension, the Higher Self in all of us.  The dolphins remind us how we must work together harmoniously if we are to co-exist together and build a New World of peace and harmony living in the 5th Dimension.

Between 2007-2009 several personal events altered her destiny.  After moving to Santa Cruz in March of 09, a friend took her to see the movie “The Living Matrix” featuring Dr. Eric Pearl of The Reconnection.  There was an instant attraction to the Reconnective Healing work and within a few weeks, Belinda was attending the seminar in Chicago and completing Levels 1,2, and 3 in Reconnective Healing and The Reconnection.
“This new Light and Information beckoned me to climb higher, leaving behind old modalities and stepping into a multidimensional frequency. This is the frequency of the 5th Dimension combining color, sound and information that can regenerate the functions of the human body on all levels.  I am humbled to be a part of this shift in time and honored to share this healing experience with you.”

Ask Dr. Bunny. Who is Your Car Angel? Greg Macke, Guest

Greg Macke

Greg Macke

Greg Macke joins Dr. Bunny to discuss Your Car Angel – and how to make buying and selling a car easy!

Whether you are buying from a Dealer or Private Party, purchasing a car can be stressful and a wrong turn can lead to a very expensive headache.Greg’s Buying Service takes all the guesswork out of the car buying process. Simply put, Greg gets you the best car for the best money with the best experience.

With his Selling Service, selling your car could not be easier. Greg will sell your car for top dollar, with no hassle.

About Greg Macke:

I am devoted to helping people like you purchase their next car. I can teach you with Car Buying Support video and text tutorial packages at, or you can hire me personally if you live in the Southern California area.

I am not a dealer or a broker. I am a consumer advocate. My mission is to protect consumers from getting taken advantage of by the dealer or seller. I am passionate about finding high quality cars for people and that passion has led me to create the many services this website has to offer.

When I was younger, I enjoyed being the “car finder” for family and friends.

Later, at the tender age of 22, I moved out to California where I started a window cleaning business. One of my first clients was Beverly Hills Sports Cars. How I worked my way from cleaning their windows to becoming their National Car Buyer is a long story but essentially my penchant for knowing how to inspect a car for being high quality was recognized and my skills became an important asset to the company’s future.

Essentially my job was travelling nationwide, inspecting and purchasing exotic cars and having them sent back to the Beverly Hills showroom. This is where I honed my inspection skills and gained valuable information on what goes on behind the scenes. I also learned how to keep the dealers out of your pockets.

Since that time I have helped countless people with their used car purchases and today I provide this important service as an independent car buying professional here in the Santa Barbara/Ventura areas of Southern California. I provide on-site services which include consulting, researching, inspecting, negotiating and DMV assistance throughout the entire car purchasing or selling processes.

Most people buy a car once every 3-4 years. I’m buying a car every 3-4 days.

Buying cars is easy for me because I follow a time tested formula. It is a series of steps that always produces great results, without fail. My personal car buying service is a product of over 30 years of car buying expertise. Everything from knowing how to determine if a car is good, to doing an actual car inspection, knowing the dealer tricks and traps and much more. No matter if you are buying from a dealer or private party, in no time you will be way ahead of others who enter into this process without the help of experienced guidance.

Whether through my online video and text tutorials at, or by hiring me personally I’ll be at your side every step of the way.
