DR. HERBERT SPIEGEL June 29, 1914 – December 15, 2009


"Dr. Herbert Spiegel was so far ahead of his time, it was simply stunning… He was an heroic trailblazer - actually a genius at a very, very high level. "

Jack Barchas, MD – Chairman of the Dept. of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College and Psychiatrist-in-Chief, Weill Cornell Medical Center of the New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, New York

"Herb recognized hypnosis isn’t a therapy; hypnosis is a process by which you can do therapy… the trance state is just a normal state of the brain but you have to learn how to use it… "

Philip Muskin, MD - Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia Univ. Medical Center, New York, New York

"Dr. Spiegel… made it his life’s calling to introduce people to their untapped resources. …Awarded the Purple Heart (1943), it was the first of many awards he received in his lifetime. "

Donald Connery, author (The Inner Source: Exploring Hypnosis with Dr. Herbert Spiegel) & international journalist.
