A new born in St-Malo (France)
A few days ago, the doors of the 'Palais du Grand Large' in Saint-Malo have just closed on a muffled silence. The illuminated footlights of the 'Chateaubriand' lecture hall are still cooling down and listening to the past emotions rebounding to life on the walls… This 6th international congress on 'Hypnosis and Pain', which was organized by Emergences, has come out to be the cradle of your new International Hypnosis Journal entitled 'HypnoKairos', pure coincidence (or not that pure, is it !). Conceived during lunch at home and throughout a series of chaotic events, this idea has finally required 3 short weeks, numerous friends and international colleagues to simply come to life in the presence of the people attending the congress. First of all Stephanie, my partner in life, attentive to this wild idea, and then Jean-Francois Marquet, Richard Gagnon and Kenton Kaiser, have accepted to join me on this project in a matter of hours. Claude Virot has immediately brought his moral and logistic support in becoming the head of the International Scientific Committee. Then came in thirty six hypnosis practitioners from all around the world to blend up this committee. Among them are 'celebrities' who have been sharing their knowledge with us for many years. They have taught us everything. There are also younger ones, rising stars for the future of the profession; the ones who should write the roots of the future.
They all said "Yes" to the Scientific Committee Project
All the projects are based on the hope that it will carry along convictions. HypnoKairos has outshined what one can imagine : the unhesitating support of all those healthcare professionals despite their tight schedules. They have said 'yes' to provide the scientific and pedagogical value of what will become - we hope so - one of the references in this infinite universe named the Internet, a source of resources for all practitioners using hypnosis and brief therapy. In this boundless momentum, one should not forget the ones without whom our baby-born wouldn't have a life of its own. They have stood over the crib, godfathers and godmothers, attentive during the presentation of the project and full of generosity just after granting their trust and their funds. This was one of a great moment seeing you come supporting us in the Palais just after the presentation of the project; or just telling us that this was what you had been waiting for: a new unifying project which would be at the same time benevolent, full of sharing, exchange and communication, respectful of all, using a modern and multimedia means.
"Yes you can!"
A few minutes later, another occurrence of this 'providence' gave me the opportunity to say to you 'Yes You Can !'*, and to share with you the emotions of a job dealing with the moments when everything goes down, when lives fall apart at the corner of the street. These moments when the ephemeral shows its intense and unforgettable wealth. From the glances, we have shared with those we shall never meet again, to the words that heal fear and distress. The ancient Greeks have given a name to such moments when everything can change, this fleeting moment. It is Kairos and is embodied by a young man wearing a tuft of hair on the forehead. When you come across him, either you don't see him, either you see him and do not do anything, or you grasp his tuft of hair and then life changes. Something happens. A split second to decide, act or live with remorse and regrets. During this simple lunch at home, as often in life, and provided that one is attentive, it was a moment of Kairos. I cannot bring myself to ignore these opportunities, therefore the Journal should bear this name. We have fully grasped this second. When one wants something, when one believes in something, everything can come true if one gives oneself the means. Even if the initial response are, for some, to always see the impossible and the obstacles, all this merely brings incentive, acceleration and energy.
Why this HypnoKairos symbol?
Then remained trying to imagine the first symbol image for HypnoKairos. I wanted to put together hypnosis, openness towards discovery, investigation of new perspectives, space for freedom of thinking and doing, and also the idea that this Journal could build bridges between all the countries in the world. It became obvious to use the image of the “hands of Ernest L. Rossi” gently around our beautiful blue planet, with the starry sky behind, as an opening towards the future. Nothing is frozen in our thinking. This logo might come to change one day with our creativity, as a symbol of change and of all what today's hypnosis and brief therapy bring us to move towards tomorrow.
A special thanks to our friend Bertrand Piccard (Solar Impulse)
As if he wanted to put the finishing touch and put away the final doubts, Bertrand Piccard has offered us his message directly from Phoenix, Arizona. At the time, everybody told him it was unfeasible to go around the world by plane without a drop of oil, only using solar energy. One could say of him : 'believing is succeeding'. With his team around, he simply did it. A life lesson that teaches us the humbleness we sorely need with our patients and our peers…
Just a few notes from 'Imagine' by John Lennon for an inner journey looking for all what it is to change for each of us, and also to express to you my gratitude because, thanks to you…

Why this Kairos concept for your international therapeutic hypnosis webzine?
Kairos is the crucial instant of opportunity, of the fleeting moment.
It characterizes the moment.
So, Kairos is the "moment M" of change: before, is too early, and after is too late
The Greek God Kairos is represented as a young man with only a tuft of hair on his head.
When he passes nearby, there is only three possibilities:
-You don’t see him;
-You see him and you donnot do anything;
-Or when he gets close, you hold out your hand and grab the chance by the hair (in antic Greek καιρὸν ἁρπάζειν). You seize the opportunity.
Therapeutic hypnosis has always been evolving. It has undergone a revival, thanks to the work of Milton H. Erickson, which has been constantly developing all around the world. The greatest names in this therapy based on change have followed in Erickson's footsteps, in order to provide hypnosis with a clinical and a neuro-scientific identity being asserted day after day.
The 2015 ISH congress in Paris, together with the 9th CFHTB forum, have gathered the highest number of participants and countries so far, and have won hearts and mindsThey were turning points towards the roots of the future.
This is how the idea of HypnoKairos came to life - the international therapeutic hypnosis webzine...
