Falling asleep and staying asleep is a matter of lifestyle habits, stress management, mental preparation, and the careful management of intent. This workshop was presented at the 2007 Annual Conference of the Canadian Federation of Clinical Hypnosis in Banff, Alberta, May 2007. The workshop examines myths about sleep, sleep hygiene, sleep apnea, how sleep brainwaves change throughout a lifetime, and how hypnotherapists can assist clients in learning the skills of sleep induction and deepening. A sub-section was devoted to the importance of dreams and skills of lucidity.

Additionally, participants had opportunities to practice scripts for sleep induction, and methods of reframing situations to diffuse performance anxiety about sleep.
