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).
