Discover a powerful tool for personal spiritual growth while helping others.

During this experiential intensive, you will gain both theoretical knowledge and practical insight into the process of hypnosis and past-life regression therapy. You can add a new dimension to your current practice and use hypnotherapy as a tool for personal insight and transformation.


  • Expand your understanding of past-life regression and learn to use it as a method of spiritual healing
  • Learn past-life regression techniques that you will both experience firsthand and be able to apply with others, exploring both theory and practice
  • Learn the psychological benefits of releasing past-life traumas and how to enable that process with others
  • Learn how to gain wisdom from past-life experiences and apply that knowledge in the here and now
  • Gain experience and confidence in applying these techniques and learn to use them safely and ethically to help others


This course will teach you how to conduct a regression from start to finish. You will leave the course confident in your abilities to conduct a regression as Peter demystifies the process, breaking it down into practical, manageable steps.

Edgar Cayce himself recommended hypnosis as a tool for healing and transformation. He advised that "the study of self...may best be done by suggestive forces to the body through hypnosis."

This course will focus on both the spiritual and physical healing aspects of past-life regression therapy.
Taught by psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, and Harvard University graduate Peter Woodbury, MSW, who was trained by Dr. Brian Weiss, Dr. Allen Chips, and Dan Brown, PhD, his techniques involve practices that include: induction—the process of entering trance; the regression experience; and review with client in the waking state. He will draw from Edgar Cayce’s teachings, focusing on spiritual purposes and ways of using prayer and protection that will fit the client’s belief system.



  • Past-life regression therapy
  • Hypnosis and hypnotherapy techniques
  • Overseeing the healing process
  • The mind-body-spirit connection
  • Edgar Cayce’s perspectives on healing past-life trauma

Students will witness the process in a classroom setting and will have the opportunity to practice these methods as both practitioner and client. Each student will receive individualized attention and training using state of the art technology to ensure an optimal learning experience.

This course will focus on:

  • Optimal training including conducting at least three regressions and experiencing at least three regressions
  • The common past-life regression experiences
  • The unusual experiences
  • The in-between life states
  • The departure from the body experience
  • Meeting with guides and councils 
  • Questions, answers, and discussions

You will receive a Certificate of Completion, certifying that you  have successfully completed this training through the A.R.E.
