Bromley is also an advocate of hypnosis as a means of eliminating obstacles to creativity such as preconceived ideas, limitations, and inhibitions. As a certified hypnotherapist, he has taught his philosophy (through his Creativity Enhancement Workshops) throughout the Midwest to hundreds of artists and art students at colleges, universities, and galleries. He is currently involved in research with the Department of Psychology at North Dakota State University to further explore the benefit of hypnosis on the creative process.
