#122 - Mark Anthony On Hypnosis, The Subconscious Mind & Religious Followings

Master Hypnotist Mark Anthony is an International Stage Hypnotist and a Headliner Performer. He is also a Certified Clinical Hypnotist and Hypnosis Instructor. Mark runs a very successful Hypnosis Clinic in Bundall on the beautiful Gold Coast.

Starting it off with Mark’s background - a bit on his history and what he does. Tommy takes the reigns and asks Mark about how hypnosis is portrayed in mass media and if that is true to what he does. Doc takes a turn and asks Mark just how hypnosis work, and follows up with asking about how to access the subconscious mind.

Mark gives us an example of how hypnosis can be dangerous in the wrong hands (or the improperly trained), and Doc shares an experience of his where he volunteered to be hypnotized. More questions are thrown around as the boys ask about the benefits of hypnotism, the fields place in science, and even about how it plays a role in religion.

Really great podcast here, guys. This is an incredibly interesting topic, and Mark is just great with answering our questions in-depth. Tune in as this is an episode you are going to love!
