"This class has been a transformational event in my life. Not only did I achieve my goal - to learn how to be a hypnotist - I learned deep truths about feelings, human interactions, and the mysteries of how our brains work.
The hands-on experiences, plus great texts and teaching, have given me the confidence to go into the world to truly walk my path as someone who wants to help people heal and grow.
Words can’t express how grateful I am to Erika for her fearless leadership and teaching, and to Cal for sharing these powerful techniques."
"I attended hoping to learn how to be an excellent hypnotist, and I feel like I’m coming away with sooooo much more. It was truly a transformational experience. Erika is incredibly passionate, compassionate, and professional instructor - a true “TEACHER.”
I look forward to working with her over the next year in the mentorship and hopefully beyond. She is the type of professional that I want to keep in my life."
Nancy Hafermann, BS (Industrial Design)
"Erika is compassionate, bur wonderfully no nonsense. In a class full of very different characters, she was able to present, and sometimes translate, the needed information and techniques successfully for the most part. This is a lot of information in a two week period…I signed up for the mentoring because of this.
Overall, [I] grew as a teacher, hypnotist, and as a human.
P.S. Making 7th Path a part of this is genius and a saving grace. [I] can’t wait to do and train more."
Amy “Skeeter” Welhouse
"Initially, I started looking for hypnosis classes and certifications via Google search, and Erika’s hypnosis center and classes showed up. I was intrigued by the videos [she and Cal] did together, and so I contacted her to see if I could get more info. What ended up happening is I decided to actually become a client first and go through the process to make sure it was the right lace for me to be. I was blown away by the 5 Path process and the results I got.
Fast forward one year and I signed on for the course. I didn’t know what to expect, but the last two weeks have been life altering. In my opinion, 5 Path is the best hypnosis program out there. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of something so amazing."
"This course was a very methodical experience in personal and professional growth. I personally learned more than hypnosis skills, but also learned how to apply them to ALL aspects of my personal and professional life.
…Its systematic approach to achieve results lends confidence to assure success for client and hypnotist."
"This class has been one of the hardest things I’ve done, but also the best thing I could have done to help my soul. The techniques I learned are invaluable.
I know that I will be able to help people heal, be their best selves, and live their best lives. Thank you, Erika - my gratitude for your expertise will only help me become the best healer/hypnotist I can be. My gratitude for the kindness you showed me will always be near my heart. Thank you."
Mary Lou Blount
"Erika is a masterful teacher. This course is intense and comprehensive. The content is excellent and it is well managed. Practice time was built in and there was ample opportunity for feedback.
I feel well prepared for my first client. The 5-PATH system is well tested and is an effective method to help people/clients achieve lasting results."
Katharine Hardy, RNBS, MS, MBA
I loved the course, it provided an excellent base of knowledge providing all that it necessary to start a successful practice. I also feel like working with Erika has provided me with significant personal, as well as professional growth.
Brian McCartney AA
This is the most intensive, emotional and yet fruitful training that I’ve ever taken. We went through lots of techniques, tips, and practice, not only at the world-class level, but also we experienced significant personal self-transformation by reflecting on ourselves and observing others’ changes. This course provides all the necessary information and resources to be a 5-PATH hypnotist, and in addition to that, deepens our own level of understanding, gratitude, love, and compassion. A life-time lesson for all.
Yung-Ho Ophelia Wang, PhD
Excellent course & instructor. When finished you are equipped with everything you need to be a competent & professional hypnotist.
Erika’s classroom is a place for intense learning and profound change. She’s compassionate and caring while being highly organized and informed on modern therapeutic hypnotherapy techniques.
Keridwyn Deller, BS
Very intensive training. The teacher is excellent, enthusiastic, directive, and structured.
Irena Rozet, MD
Erika is an outstanding instructor who is fully present, authentic, fun, compassionate and knowledgeable. She delivers more content and insight than you can even begin to imagine. Erika exudes confidence – and supports and boosts you in your own confidence and journey.
Erika’s course provided me with a wealth of knowledge & self-transformation. It is more than a course, it is journey of self-exploration, one that Erika provides safe and secure space to facilitate change, growth and transformation upon graduation. I feel confident in my abilities and the techniques to begin seeing clients immediately. I’ve changed because now I know and feel I will be an amazing hypnotherapist. So now I can guide people out of their darkness and back into their light.
Nicole Anthony, BA
From Day 1 I knew I made the right choice to take this course and I am glad that Erika is the instructor. She is an amazing teacher and I learned a lot from her. This course was very organized and I really appreciate every day...Perfect amount of homework and study each day... Looking forward to coming in the class every day. Erika showed me what "Boundary" is and true meaning of "compassionate" and "be professional". I've changed from this course, now I know that I have confidence to help people, and that make I feel powerful. So now I can chase my dreams. Thank you!!! - Rena Barker, New Leaf Hypnosis
Erika was a great instructor. Her love, patients, and compassion really shine through every single one of us in his class. I am so thankful to have taken this class and to have Erika as an instructor. She is an amazing human being and an amazing soul. It was a life changing experience for me.
Erika's style of teaching makes learning fun and exciting. I have not been in a classroom setting for almost 30 years and was truly unsure of how my brain would receive and hold onto so much information. She has made it incredible and enjoyable throughout. This is the only hypnosis training I will refer people to, and always Erika as a local teacher. - Heather Dixon, Pacific Hypnosis Center
I am a 63 year old retired college coach/professor (retired in Dec 2015) Erika Flint has inspired me to "Pay it Forward". Retirement is boring! In 2 years, I have "lost my voice/confidence, broken my wings, and given up on myself :-(
Erika's knowledge, vision, and passion have made me COME ALIVE! She has given me the tools to NEVER let HOPE elude me again. I am now excited to pursue the next chapter in my life
Erika does a brilliant job of presenting this material in an easy to understand way. Although the material is challenging she keeps the class fun while insuring all of the class is learning. I would highly recommend this class and this teacher to anyone interested in learning hypnosis.
This was a great class. Erika is a very good teacher and really knows her stuff. I went from knowing virtually nothing about hypnosis to feeling like I can really do this and help people in need of it. 5-Path is a wonderful process and with Erika's enthusiasm and knowledge and great teaching style, I'm proud to say I'm a 5-Pather now!
Erika brings a level of professional expertise, compassion, and teaching skill that makes this class totally unique among hypnosis training classes. Coming from a medical provider background, the knowledge contained in this class went well beyond my own training in finding and addressing the root causes of so many of the problems my patients bring to me. It’s revolutionary and worth ten times its cost. It will change your life in so many ways too! – Greg McMicheal, Madrona Hypnosis
Of all my education, which includes a master’s degree, Erika Flint is the best teacher that I have ever encountered. She enjoys teaching, is totally prepared, is enthusiastic, and cares about every student. Don’t miss this one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see what education should be.
This was the third hypnosis training that I have attended. It was far and away the most detailed, in-depth, and understandable training I have taken. Erika has a true gift of taking complex subjects and ideas and teaching them in a way that makes them easy to understand and practice. This was a fantastic class.
This has been a life-changing experience. What I have learned from Erika will enable me to begin building my own hypnosis practice right away. She is a stellar instructor with a great passion for her profession and it shows in her class every day. If you want to practice hypnosis, this is the place to start!
I loved this course that is taught by Erika Flint. It was an amazing experience. The course was very informative and I learned a lot. She really cares about what she teaches and she also cares about the success of the students. I definitely recommend this training to any who is interested in learning hypnosis.
Love how Erika respects all our time, everything on a schedule. Also blown away how she helped me, taking the time after class one day when some good feedback tripped some old fears :-) .
There is nothing I would change. Practice time to learn all perfectly balanced and explained ahead of time.
Fascinating course and exceptionally well taught
Erika did an amazing job of presenting the material in a fun, professional, and organized way. I can honestly say that this was a life changing experience. Thank you Erika, because of you I feel excited, confident, and fully prepared to go out in the world and help change lives!
This course was awesome!!!I have had over 7+ years of college education and 3 degrees and this course was by far the most informative and insightful educational course I have taken. I took this course because I believe that much of our health and well-being stems from our mental well-being and attitude. I wanted to help others regain optimal health and via hypnosis I believe I can do that. I can’t wait to start my new business as a hypnotherapist. I do want to make mention to future students that may be hesitant for any reason that my only regret is that I didn’t do this course sooner. Also, as a Christian, this course has brought me closer to my beliefs which is wonderful.
This course is very thorough and professional. I have all the knowledge I need to begin my hypnotherapy practice. I feel very prepared for my future as a hypnotist. Plus, Erika is super fun and I have made friends along the way!
Having experienced hypnosis using older techniques, I was unprepared for the speed and depth of the 5-PATH program. Erika’s depth of knowledge and dedication to helping students made the course much easier than seemed possible. Frequent practice sessions reinforced the positive nature of this powerful system of hypnosis.
I highly recommend this compassionate, caring system of hypnotherapy.
I know I wanted to find a career motivated by compassion, and as soon as I read through the website and got a sense of who Erika was, I knew I was in the right place. The class was entirely rewarding and left me feeling confident in my own abilities to start my own hypnotherapy practice.
There was a lot of valuable content and Erika broke it down very well and the practice time was very valuable. I feel prepared to offer my services and this is actually my second time going through training for hypnosis and I am already a practitioner. I felt I needed stronger skills and this course gave me that. I am excited to start using them.
This course has been knowns to build your self confidence, put you on a path to an exciting career & enlighten you in ways you never could have imagined. Sign up only if you believe you are not currently living your life to the fullest ; you will not regret it!
Very informative, thorough, organized. Great use of time. Got a lot out of the class. Thank you!
This class is an excellent first step to becoming a hypnotherapist.
This training course was all I hoped for and far more than I had ever expected.
Amazing life-changing experience! This comprehensive course wasn't overwhelming, and sunk in to me at a deep level because of Erika's teaching talents.
I truly believe that I have been trained by one of the best in the industry (Erika Flint). I feel this way because she herself was trained by Cal Banyan - an innovative genius.
The Training I've Received is Phenomenal!
The information is well thought out, thorough, and highly effective.
I feel privileged to have witnessed and personally experienced the power of this work.
I'm excited to share the healing power of these techniques with people who need it so desperately.
This Course is Taught with Strong Vigor and Compassion. The student exits the course knowing how to impact a potential client with hypnotherapy.
The course is exceedingly practical with both didactic and hands-on training.
I am so motivated!
- Cate Buck, BA
Erika is a Fantastic Teacher. The class was fun and informative. I look forward to helping people through hypnosis.
The class has also benefited me personally.
The course was 100x more powerful than I could have anticipated. I am leaving with the knowledge I need to start my new career and more importantly the confidence and skill to succeed in my new career. Erika is inspirational and she has a great way about her in her presentation what a patient teacher she is! – Anthony Gitch, Excel Hypnosis
I was expecting to do this training just to add another service to my existing business, but going through the course and Erika’s passion for Hypnosis really changed my mindset! I’m ready to make Hypnosis my main business focus. Everything was above my expectation, the content, the quality of the instruction, the timing of the presentation, even the snacks! Thank you Erika!!
-Jennifer Milano, LMP
I found the course excellent in content, practice and results, easy to understand with the flow of information sequential.

This class provided me with knowledge ability and confidence! I now have to do a very powerful system of hypnotic techniques to help people make real and lasting changes in their lives, which in turn helps me to fulfill my core mission in life, to make the work a better place THANK YOU ERIKA! YOU ARE AWESOME! THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH SUPER DELICIOUS APPLES TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE.
Working with Erika as a client has been life changing for me, so having the opportunity to train with her to become a therapist is a huge gift because I am a personal testimony of her skills, knowledge and expertise, the class is organized and professional and not only educates the participant in the art and science of hypnosis, but spells out all of the requirement and tools necessary to begin practicing right away. Erika is amazingly generous when it comes to sharing her knowledge and advice. She truly shares her passion about hypnosis and working with client while supporting her students and making them fell comfortable and accomplished each step of the way. Training with her has been a pleasure and a gift. I highly recommend her class to anyone who has a heart and desire to work with clients where ever they are on their life’s path.
I really enjoyed learning 5-PATH hypnosis with Erika in this class. I had meaningful realizations beyond the training about my own life, my goals, and how to achieve them. Erika is a great teacher and thanks to hear and the value of 5-PATH this has been a wonderful experience!
– Daniele Favaro
Excellent class ; wonderful content ; brilliant presentations! I am amazed only only about what I learned regarding hypnosis, but the personal growth that took place in a 5 week process. I highly recommend this course and this instructor (Erika Flint) to any others who wish to practice hypnosis.
– Amy Marhon
I received prior training elsewhere and already a recent graduate and licensed hypnotherapist. I didn’t feel confident enough with what I’d learned to start a practice. Erika suggested I receive 5-PATH training and I now feel I have the tools to get started. 5-PATH eliminates the guesswork increasing the success rate of our clients. Erika’s business model is exactly how I envision my practice, so I don’t have to re-invent the wheel. Erika is professional and dedicated and a pleasure to work with.
– David Slinkard
This has been the most amazing as well as overwhelming course I have ever taking. All in a good way. I feel MORE EXCITED about this profession that I am about to embark on than anything I have ever done before. Erika is a very effective instructor. I loved every minute of it. Thank you.
– Derrick Gillikin

Erika Flint was the most engaging instructor I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. Her warmth and humor perfectly augment her prowess as a teacher, and her deep understanding of hypnosis is absolutely amazing! I have come away from the class with a value far beyond what I anticipated. I would highly recommend her class.
– Joseph Seuferling
Erika exudes a presence of warmth, professionalism and intelligence that automatically made me feel like I’d found the right instructor. She clearly and concisely presents material and while she is absolutely willing to answer questions and explain things, she also expects every person in her class to show up and be at their best. She’s a great role model and there were so many things she brought to our class that I felt I resonate with. I feel grateful that Erika was my teacher for this class.
– Susan Dummet
I think Erika did a wonderful job of instructing this class/training. She is knowledgeable, experienced, likable, approachable, present. I came into the class with apprehension, doubt, and a few misconceived notions. Erika quickly dispelled this and “graduated” feeling confident and prepared to go forth and begin helping others to heal. Great class!
– Darlyce Hemme
Great course! We covered a lot of material in a short amount of time and Erika was great with staying on track and covering everything. I feel prepared to start seeing clients right away and also I’m really excited to get started!
