OUR MISSION: To Be More Than a School
Be A Community of the Free-Spirited!

Misson of our NLP coaching institute and hypnosis schoolOur Mission: To develop a community of individuals from all walks of life and diverse aspirations that have a common desire to contribute to the health, well-being and success of themselves and others. To be a coaching institute and hypnosis school that is a true source for the freedom of spirit, the freedom from illness and dis-ease, and the freedom from limitations. To foster a life of fun, wealth, health, and prosperity for all who desire it.


History of our NLP coaching institute and hypnosis schoolMichael Andrew Bennett and Ronald L. Bennett were both close and highly creative children growing up in a small Midwestern town in Illinois. As young men, they each began their own journey in life far from the home they knew. Ronald initially moved to Minnesota to attend college specializing in the removal of addictions, and then moved on to Washington, D.C., to study and receive his master’s degree in psychology. Michael traveled out west to Washington State, where he followed his passion for fun by developing board games. Both men continually found themselves transitioning from one job to the next as their spirits searched for that one thing which would finally satisfy them — the thing we all search for — their purpose.

It is not unusual to encounter differences between two siblings, which is why this little story is unique. These two brothers would each independently, and without the influence of the other, find their paths rejoining years later. These two very different brothers would both find commonality in their study of Hypnotherapy and Coaching. Ronald, through his passion to become a healer, and his dissatisfaction with what he had accomplished with his master’s degree in psychology, felt he needed more. Michael, whose love of life, his own spiritual growth, and teaching, would also be guided to become a healer and speaker, and began studying with the developers of NLP and Life Coaching, and with the masters of Hypnotherapy. University instructors Sandra & Michael Training at our NLP coaching institute and hypnosis school

With the emergence of the popularity of the Life Coach profession, and having developed their highly acclaimed NLP and hypnotherapy program, Michael and Ronn created their state-of-the-art coaching model entitled DreamSculpting®. Sandra Vesterstein, having been previously trained and certified as a life coach by the founder of the ICF and its sister school Coach U, and herself the founder of Pure Potential Coaching™ and Women-N-Spirit™ retreats, attended Bennett | Stellar University’s Life Transformation Coach program. Her profound personal experience, and her rapid business growth as a result, led her to join the team. She became a partner, bringing her 15 years of experience as a health educator and life coach to Bennett | Stellar University.

When the two minds of these enigmatic brothers merged their knowledge with colleagues, something profound was birthed into being. Their search for meaning brought them all together to share a passion, which would bring an unimagined degree of healing and success to those who took part in it. And now, here for you, is the product of the combined wisdom and heart of Michael and Ronn Bennett with the contributions of Sandra Vesterstein and David Silkwood (Ronn’s partner and co-founder of the Healing Touch Institute in Washington, D.C.), we, the staff, and the founders of this institute, would like to invite you to experience their gift to the world — Bennett | Stellar University.

Coaching Institute - Hypnosis SchoolThe research on learning is clear: The brain learns faster than you think. Condensed, accelerated, and intensive learning models are far more effective than the antiquated teaching method of spreading information out over time. In other words, submerge yourself into your learning.

For this reason, our programs condense the equivalent of as much as four-college-semester course hours into 16 full days of life enhancing study presented in a fun and rejuvenating resort setting. The result? Your education is accelerated and you profit much sooner! Which would you prefer? A few hours a week for two years or 16 days of immersion, self-discovery, and fun? The total class hours are the same.

Stellar the universeAlbert Einstein and the university“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe’ – a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.” – Albert Einstein

Michael and Ronald Bennett, each in their own unique way and given their individual backgrounds, wanted their school represented in partnership with what Ronald called God, and what Michael referred to as the Universe. They agreed this partnership would have a nickname – Stellar. Individual cultures have traditionally used personal references for this universal consciousness. Stellar, a term synonymous with peak performance and success, is our representation, or the nickname, we use to refer to the universe or universal source. Stellar simply represents our creator and all of creation.

While this might lead one to believe that Bennett | Stellar University is a religious-based organization, it is not. We simply believe we are all connected to a higher power, and this source has a behind-the-scenes influence upon our delivery of material, our teaching environment, and our students’ growth and success. Ironically, even though we promote no particular faith or philosophy, the information we share does enhance individual spiritual beliefs. In our nearly 20-year existence, we have had students attend our programs from all over the world that represent literally every faith and religion – from the most orthodox to the casual believer. All of these students reported they had found their learning here to have strengthened their beliefs in each of their individual religious or spiritual philosophies.
