The hypnosis event, named ‘@socialtrance’, will see Chris Hughes offering positive suggestions to participants on how they could get a good start in the New Year. However, the hypnotist has also claimed that the hypnosis session will be ‘fun’ as well.

In order for the mass hypnosis to work, participants will require a PC or laptop with an internet connection, speakers or headphones, a ‘comfy’ chair and a quite place.
However, it has been advised that any one having a psychotic illness or suffering from heart problems should not take part in the experiment.
