A Tribute to Women of Hypnosis

I would like to give some notoriety to the women in hypnosis throughout history, much of the contributions that these women have made have gone unnoticed, undocumented in mainstream media in favor of their male counterparts. I begin this history with the African Snake Goddess Delphyne, the foremost oracle.

Delphyne (The Foremost Hypnotist) was a famous oracle (visionary, prophetess, sage) residing in Delphi Greece, she had her shrine. She was said to have a serpent son and consort Python. Delphyne was known as a Moon & Goddess of the Sea or the Primal Mother. Delphyne also had daughters who were Priestesses’ also called Pythonesses. Delphyne has a visual shrine built on the Greek mainland, which Python and the Priestess ruled over and it’s important to note that Python lived in an underground navel shrine or omphalos, which had a beehive shape that originated with their indigenous roots of Africa, which is also called a ghost house or Masabo.
