Loss of any kind can bring up powerful emotions that can be almost paralyzing at times.
Whether we lose a spouse, child, loved one, marriage, job, health, or even our youth, we will be faced with many feelings that no one really taught us to deal with when we were children or even adults. Many of us try to cope the best we can during these difficult times, but often the methods that we use to try to feel better just don’t offer us the change we are looking for.
Hypnotherapy is a remarkable way to transform grief and loss. One of our dear IIH graduates and IAIH presenters, Ligia Houben, will be offering a workshop out of the Institute’s Tampa location based upon her 11 Principles of Transformation.
This event is a must for anyone who is experiencing grief or who wants to help others to move through their own grief.
More than a workshop…it is a life experience
This powerful workshop offers techniques and tools you can use right away to help you live a fulfilled life after loss.
Despite being a heavy subject, Ligia M. Houben, grief and loss expert, presents it in a light and caring manner. It will be an enriching experience that can be applied to a present loss or transition, past experiences that haven’t been processed and may be interfering with your quality of life, and as a your guide to future challenging life transitions.
You will be able to heal the past, change the present, and transform the future.
About the didactic
This event, more than a seminar, will be a life experience.
During this time, we will visit the Eleven Principles of TransformationTM through interesting lectures, group activities, sharing, role plays, meditation, visualization, exercises/building, and rituals.
You will receive a workbook, a copy of the book Transform your Loss. Your Guide to Strength and Hope, didactic materials, and more!
The weekend of October 23 will be unforgettable!
“Ligia’s presentation on grief was more than just a presentation. It was an interactive, experiential conference where we felt first-hand how her compassionate strategies for healing grief are implemented and effective, allowing us to immediately begin using these techniques with our own clients.”
“Enjoyed my day listening to Ligia speak in Columbus. I specialize in grief work and feel that she gave me many new tools that I didn’t have. She is so passionate about the field and tied with her knowledge, she was extremely enjoyable!”

About The 11 Principles of Transformation®
During this 2 1/2-day seminar, Ligia will take us through her 11 Principles of Transformation®. The following is a snapshot of what each principle will cover:
Principle I: Accept your Loss – We will learn how acceptance can be a choice. We can choose between dwelling on what has happened to us or accepting our new reality and do something about it.
Principe II: Live your Grief – We will learn how to validate the emotions we are experiencing. We may be suppressing pain that could be affecting many areas of our life.
Principle III: Go Deeper into your Spiritual Dimension – We will discover the spiritual tools that can make a difference on how we live our lives after a loss.
Principle IV: Express your Feelings – We will learn how to connect with our inner self and how to express our emotions.
Principle V: Share with Others – We will develop tools to communicate with others in a meaningful way. The better we communicate the easier it is for others to understand us.
Principle VI: Take Care of Yourself – We will learn to pay attention to our needs and develop habits that bring us comfort and wellbeing.
Principle VII: Use Rituals – We will find out about the value of rituals and learn how to incorporate them into our life.
Principle VIII: Life the Present – We will learn to let go of the past and stop worrying about the future.
Principle IX: Modify your Thoughts – We will learn how to change the way we feel by changing the way we think.
Principle X: Rebuild your World – We will learn to use our inner resources to relocate our loss and realize there is life after it.
Principle XI: Visualize the Life you Want – We will become the architects of our own destiny.
