Background on Don Spencer & SleepNow™ Productions
Hello Friends, I began hypnosis fulltime in 1986 and created SleepNow™

products and for professional hypnotic entertainment. I know you'll enjoy the site and I look forward to assisting you during your quest for hypnotic realities!
I am constantly working to stay abreast of the latest developments in the mind sciences and create hypnosis programs that are ground-breaking and futuristic. I believe you'll enjoy what I've done. As always, if you have any great ideas please feel free to drop me a line.
Biography of Spencer
Spencer first induced hypnosis at the age of 12. His young
"girlfriend" at the time was being hypnotized by her father
who was in the military. She taught the young Spencer the art of stilling the mind. He would sit quietly with her head on
his lap. Rubbing her temples and having her count backwards she quickly
entered a deep somnambulistic state! The astonished Spencer gave her
directions. The teenage boy likened the experience to an exaggerated
Spencer never forgot that experience and over the
years was drawn to books and classes, movies and people that hovered
on the edge of the mysterious. His curiosity led him to formal educational
studies in philosophy, psychology, physiology, abnormal behavior and
comparative religion. Alternative studies that captivated his attention
and lifestyle were shamanism, metaphysics, hypnotism, NLP, kinesiology,
1986 - Present day.... Spencer began his work as a Hypnotherapist.
His most influential teachers at the time were Charles Tebetts, Ormand
McGill, Jim Russell, Al Krasner and other notables to numerous to
mention. He began his associations with the leading certification
bodies of the day.
He developed the Hypnotism Training Institute of
Idaho in 1989, Hypnotism Training International in Utah in 1991, the
Personal Acheivement Center for private consultations and morphed
into SleepNow Productions, Inc. SleepNow went online in 1994 as a
leader in hypnosis information and technology.
In 1991 he raised the bar on Hypnosis Certification Training when he turned away from the traditional 30 hour or 150 hour courses offered at the time and began the first 300 hour Hypnotherapy Certification Program offering Hypnosis as a Career. His school was registered as a Postsecondary Proprietary School with the Utah State Board of Regents to offer Diplomas in Hypnotherapy.
During this time he also taught Hypnosis for 4 years at the College of Southern Idaho plus hosted a weekly radio program called the Master Mind Hour. Thousands of people tuned in each week to listen and get hypnotized!
After spending over a decade as a Clinical Hypnotherapist,
after training over 25,000 people in the art and science of hypnotism/hypnotherapy,
after going nucking futs from being a full-time hypnotherapist running
4 highly successful offices in 2 states and 2 schools of hypnotherapy,
after amassing an incredible library of over 1,000 books on the mind
sciences, after hypnotizing hundreds of thousands of people, (now over 1,000,000 hypnotized) Spencer said enough.

unleashing the human potential in the Northwest USA.

by legendary Ormand McGill, Dean of American Hypnotists
and author of Professional Stage Hypnosis, "the book on hypnotic
This was opening night at the Avalon Theater in Salt Lake City.

that there is nothing magical or mystical
about hypnosis. An individual can be hypnotized without even realizing
it. In fact, people slip in and out of hypnosis all day long. Hypnosis
is based upon the power of suggestion with the addition of relaxation
that his subjects can be hypnotized in less
than one second!
