HYDE 2020 Agenda

With our amazing presenters we put up an agenda that covers a wide variety of topics from intense fear play sessions with monsters and brainwashing to lighter sessions covering hypnotic aftercare as well as educational bits that will improve the tist's and subject's experience likewise.

The classes will be held in two separate rooms and last approximately 45 minutes each. There will be short breaks in between the classes as well as longer breaks for lunch and dinner.

While the program in the big presentation room is slightly more focused on demos, education and observing, things are getting a bit more practical in the small rooms. It is meant as a place to start practicing together. Not all time slots are filled with program, however, the room will be monitored by experienced tists and subjects and can be visited at any time to practice and / or experience mentored trance sessions.

Daniël :: Get your ideomotor running

10:00 - 10:45 // Big Presentation Room

The ideomotor response (automatic movement) is one of the most basic phenomena in hypnosis but also one of the most useful because it can provide us with direct visual feedback. In this workshop we will be exploring different ways that this can be useful in the induction of hypnosis.

Copycat :: Your best trance - Active participation

12:00 - 12:45 // Big Presentation Room

There's an odd, and sometimes uncomfortable, dichtonomy in hypnosis when used for kinky purposes. For many of us, the fantasy is being (forcibly) controlled. A fantasy that can be at odds with the fact that the best trance experiences come from subjects who participate actively. In this talk, I share my views on how to be an active subject and reconcile this with concepts such as resistance play.
