About the Teacher

My name is Celeste Hackett, BCH, CPHI and I became a hypnotist after a long and rewarding career as a major market Radio announcer. I first started my trainnig in Houston with the Path Foundation. Then, after extensive reading, I became enthralled by the teachings of Calvin Banyan (5-PATH and 7th Path) and went on to be enthusiastic student and supporter.

I knew right away that this work could powerfully impact the world and I set to learning it with the vigor that only someone who realizes its worth will. Currently, as of this writing, I see up to 20 clients a week at my home office in Plano, Texas (just north of Dallas). My business grossed about $34,000.00 in its first year and in my second year more than doubled that-rough calculations indicate 74, 000.00 in 2007.

I candidly share my journey about growing my business in articles at Cal Banyan's website E-zine on (many are also listed on this site). I also started the first grass-roots study group for 5-PATH hypnotists who wanted on-going support and encouragement. For more information about the study group contact me at 972-673-0110 or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

In addition, I co-host a weekly video/audio pod cast with Calvin Banyan called “Cal Banyan’s Hypnosis Etc with Celeste Hackett.” We give free training there for up and coming hypnotists. You can access these podcasts at

For more about me and my practice see the interview on the interview page (link below). For the articles about growing my business click on the articles link below.

I hope you will consider becoming a 5-PATH hypnotist. It is a rewarding career that can help you to help many people and thier families live happier more productive lives.
