Author / Hypnotist / Healer
Dick Sutphen has established distinguished careers in advertising and audio publishing, in addition to writing several bestselling books and conducting seminars for over 185,000 people.
Dick grew up in Nebraska in the 1950s and after high school worked in an advertising agency art department for a year before attending the Art Center School in Los Angeles, California. Starting out as an art director for major advertising agencies, he went on to receive over 150 awards for creating outstanding advertising and design for clients such as Scotch Tape and Betty Crocker.
Effective advertising is the power of persuasion. In the mid-seventies, Sutphen sought to expand his understanding of this power by studying brain/mind technology and hypnosis. One of the studio offices became the Scottsdale Hypnosis Center--a place to experiment with metaphysics, group hypnosis and past-life regression.
Dick is often a featured speaker at conventions such as the American Council of Hypnotherapy. Sutphen Seminars are conducted annually in as many as 35 U.S. cities and England, Ireland and Australia. He has appeared on hundreds of local and national radio and TV shows, including Phil Donahue, Good Morning America, and Tom Snyder, where he conducted the first televised past-life regression. David Susskind built a 90-minute show around Dick's work.
