Hypno-Peripheral Processing (HPP)
"If you are looking for a personal development audio series that will help you to make effortless changes in your life, then the HPP programs are for you." --Dr. Philip Brotman, Ph.D.

What is HPP?

For over 30 years, Dr. Lloyd Glauberman, a Manhattan-based psychologist-psychotherapist and expert in business-related stress management and behavior change, has helped patients, both adolescents and adults achieve a wide variety of personal and professional goals. In 1990, he dramatically expanded his patient-base as he launched the Hypno-Peripheral Processing (HPP) audio programs, a series of CDs that combine aspects of Ericksonian hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to assist people on their journey to attain greater personal fulfillment.

Recognizing that emotional intelligence (EQ) more than IQ is responsible for an individual's success in life, he designed the HPP audio programs to help people channel emotion into successful behavior. The programs lead users into the theta state of consciousness, the "twilight state" between waking and sleeping, where their ability to generate positive emotional shifts quickly is greatly enhanced. Most significantly, the programs are also entertaining and easy-to-use and can help people achieve their goals without having to spend the time and financial resources required by traditional therapy.

Each 30-minute HPP program weaves a series of parable-like stories that gently overload the listener's conscious mind. Known as dual induction, this technique shuts down the logical part of the mind and allows for a deep state of relaxation ideal for the absorption of positive suggestions by the listener's subconscious mind. Users report positive results after a few sessions. Changes begin to spontaneously appear- changes that occur naturally at the right times, in the right places, and with the right people.

The line of CDs is divided into five categories: Love and relationships; Money and Success; Emotional Well-being; Health and Fitness; Creativity and Inspiration; and Stress and Relaxation. These CDs are the only hypnosis-based audio programs to use the dual induction-story telling method.

"For a self-help product to be valuable, it must meet four criteria. First, the obvious, it must be effective. Second, it must be convenient and easy to use. Third, it must be entertaining so that the user enjoys the product. And fourth, it must produce results quickly."
-Dr. Lloyd Glauberman

The HPP Story

I was frustrated by other personal development products. I could never find a product that was easy to use, effective and entertaining. And that's why I developed my own.

The common problem with most self-help products is the amount of time and energy needed to maximize benefits. Whether it is a book, tape, CD or video, the user is expected to do more than simply read, listen or watch. Keeping a journal or doing a series of sequenced exercises is typically required. And that takes time and energy, more time and energy than busy people have to give. How many times have people begun a personal development program enthusiastically only to have their interest fade over time. They never get the results they want because the program never sustains the necessary level of interest. But one element that doesn't change is people's desire to find something that really works.

What I've developed is a series of audio programs that satisfies the three key elements of a successful personal development product: effective, easy to use and entertaining. My programs minimize time while maximizing results. You get what you want and you get it easily and quickly! What can be better than that?

So lie back, put your headphones on, and let your unconscious mind do the work for you.

How to use and enjoy HPP

When to listen:
Each CD has two sections except the money program which has three. Each section is about 25 minutes in length. It is not necessary to use any program more than once per day.

So, for a two CD program, that would be four days to complete the program once. Then go back and start again, this time reversing the headphones so the stories are in different ears. This 8 day cycle should be repeated twice.

On day 17 start again, but this time listen every other day but follow the same listening sequence. In total that will be 32 days for a two CD program. Then listen as needed for reinforcement and/or stress management.

The number of days will depend on the number of sections in a program which range from 2 to 8. Once you've begun listening and have a "feel" for the process, you can integrate another program. The entire series is tied together on a fundamental level that allows mixing and matching without losing any of the power of any one program.

How to Listen:
The HPP programs are structured to work on multiple levels. You have to be in a quiet environment with headphones and have 25 minutes of uninterrupted time. The programs will automatically guide you down into the state between waking and sleep, the hypnagogic state. It will feel like sleep since you will have drifted off and not be focused on the material. The programs will not be effective if you actually are asleep. Remember, the effectiveness of the technology is built around the auditory analogue of peripheral vision. In other words, you can process messages and suggestions outside of awareness while simultaneously being deeply relaxed managing your stress.

Why is HPP so effective?

HPP products are built on decades of knowledge, combining elements of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian hypnotherapy. Users report that HPP CDs are more effective than traditional self-help products, producing results after just a few sessions. This happens for 4 reasons:

1) Dual Induction Sensory Overload

Using a process that is exclusive to HPP, each 30-minute program has two parable-like stories that play simultaneously, one in each ear. Therapeutic metaphors are one of the most powerful learning devices and are the basis for HPP's effectiveness.

Initially, you will try to listen to both stories simultaneously or try to focus on one story entirely. But, after a few minutes you will find yourself drifting off and not focusing on either story. This is known as dual induction, and it shuts down the logical part of the mind-the "chatter box" that accompanies our waking state.

The result of this gentle overload is a deep state of relaxation-ideal for the absorption of the positive suggestions conveyed in each program.

2) Deep Relaxation Techniques

Wearing headphones, you hear calm voices against a background of music, gently guiding you very quickly into a relaxed state.

This deeply relaxed state allows you to become more receptive to the positive messages contained in the audio program.

3. Powerful and Positive Messages

At strategic points on each CD, the stories interface to give your subconscious a clear powerful, positive message.

Using techniques gleaned from Eriksonian hypnotherapy, the power of storytelling metaphors creates change at the unconscious level. The unconscious mind is constantly influencing conscious thought and action - The overlapping stories and metaphors cause both brain hemispheres to work together, creating positive resolutions to whatever goal you are working on

4. Easy and Effortless Results

HPP has very few material or time requirements. All you need is a CD player, headphones and 30 minutes of uninterrupted time. The audio program and your unconscious does the rest.

After just a few sessions, you may begin to notice a positive, cumulative effect on your overall emotional state. Suddenly, you are calmer. You have better self-control. Positive changes have begun to occur without conscious thought.

This is the beauty of HPP: easy results, which are faster, less expensive, and more effective than traditional self-help products.
