The afternoon of Thursday 10th April 2014 was literally “out of this world” as the Counselling and Guidance (CGC), Makerere University played host to the first ever public session on Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT). As the sun shone brightly outside, a few minutes to appointed hour of 2:00pm found the session host Mr. Louis Kakinda lost in meditation; setting the spiritual itinerary.
Quantum Healing Hypnosis is a technique of hypnosis created by Dolores Cannon which she has developed and refined over her 45 year career as a regressive hypnotherapist, working with thousands of clients in countries all over the world. Mr. Louis Kakinda, an Assistant Lecturer in the College of Education and External Studies (CEES), Makerere University is a QHHT practitioner trained by Dolores and the only one in Africa, outside South Africa.
Welcoming his audience to the first ever such session, Mr. Kakinda was eager to put his approximately 20 person audience at ease, considering that most of them kept on staring curiously at the bed that was at the front of the room, “This will be used by our volunteer/subject for today’s session who I will introduce to you shortly,” said Mr. Kakinda as he smiled reassuringly.
After holding an opening prayer during which he called upon God to guide the session to a successful end, Mr. Kakinda then explained that the session would last 2 hours, during which the subject will be taken through an “Induction” stage lasting 5 to 10 minutes and thereafter, we would be able to have conversations with angels. “You may have your doubts but those are not necessary here. We have successfully held 70 sessions with 42 clients so far and there is a waiting list,” explained Mr. Kakinda.
He then invited the day’s volunteer, a young female in her twenties and asked her to lie on the bed and cover herself up, leaving only her head and arms in view. He then requested that all phones be placed in the silent mode and that no one should enter or leave the room during the “Induction” stage. By now the excitement in the room was palpable as members of the audience craned their necks and strained their ears to catch every action and word as the session kicked on in earnest.
“I am going to hypnotize the subject and put them in a somnambulistic state during which they will neither be asleep nor awake. However, they will have use of their mortal senses. They will be able to speak and hear us speak,” said Mr. Kakinda.
He then asked the subject if she was willing and ready to “go” to which she replied in affirmative. As he raised his hands above the subject’s face, he continued to speak “I am going to ask you to focus on my thumbs and as I move my hands lower, you are going to feel your eyelids relaxing until they eventually close…” continued Mr. Kakinda as he made a few more statements that were not recorded for their proprietary nature. A few moments later Mr. Kakinda triumphantly announced to the audience that was at this point still trying to digest whatever was happening, “They are here!” he said. “We have four angels here with us now and the discussion is now open. You can ask anything from your personal lives, the political situation, religion and spirituality, health and wellbeing” added Mr. Kakinda in invitation. You could have heard a pin drop as the room went dead silent! A quick look around indeed revealed expressions of bewilderment, total disbelief, hesitation and fear.
Eventually after some cajoling, the questions started pouring in and they ranged from politics to personal affairs, university leadership, the staff incentive, dreams, crime, the economy, business ventures, visa applications, marriage and for those that were too private to be answered during the public session, the angels advised that a private session be arranged with Mr. Kakinda.
All in all, the session that started rather sluggishly picked up steam and before long, time was up and the subject had to be “brought back”. During this time, the audience had discovered that they chose the lives they led and all that came along with them, whether good or evil.
At the end of the session Mr. Kakinda extended an invitation to all those that needed healing in their bodies to raise their hands but owing to the audience’s initial hesitation, no such healing happened on the day. Mr. Kakinda however advised those present to book private sessions during which they could be able to contact their own personal guardian angels. “Everyone has got their own guardian angel(s) and through these sessions, we can help you get in touch with them. Normally a session like this would cost you about $400 but we are still offering these services to the Makerere Community free of charge until we receive instructions to start charging for them,” assured Mr. Kakinda.
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT).sessions are carried out at the Counselling and Guidance (CGC), Makerere University. Services offered include Prayer and Healing which last between 20 minutes and 1 and a half hours and QHHT which lasts between 3 to 5 hours. Sessions are held on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays only.

He said this during the Networking luncheon he hosted in honour of Mastercard Foundation Scholars at Makerere, who won the Resolution Fellowship project at Baobab summit in Kigali.
“Mastercard Foundation is one of the biggest partners for Makerere University and we are so proud of this partnership which has borne a lot of fruit” Prof. Nawangwe said.
The Vice Chancellor thanked the Scholars of Mastercard Foundation for being creative and innovative, and for making Uganda and Makerere University proud, when they won 6 out of the 9 Resolution projects that were given grants at the Baobab summit in Kigali.
“I would like to thank the young people whom we are celebrating today, who made me proud as the Vice Chancellor of Makerere, when they swept almost all the awards at the global stage” Prof. Nawangwe said. He further revealed that during the summit in Kigali, they kept reading Makerere University during the awarding of projects, and at some point he pretended not to be happy, because he was in the company of other Vice Chancellors, but inside of him he was beaming with joy.
”The Resolution social venture projects are extremely important in many ways; Firstly, they encourage young people to be creative and innovative, so that they are able to come with initiatives and projects, which enable them to create their own jobs, instead of moving around looking for jobs which have become fewer, while the population is growing.” Prof. Nawangwe emphasised.
On his part, the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs, and also the Chairperson of the Steering Committee of Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University, Prof. Umar Kakumba, applauded Mastercard Foundation for the support it renders to young people not only in Uganda and Makerere University, but also all over the world.

“As a country and specifically as Makerere University, we cannot run away from the idea of developing young people, because they are the current and next generation of leaders, innovators and change makers. We have a duty to skill, mentor and provide them with the continuous capacity to innovate and create economic opportunities for themselves and other young people.” Prof. Kakumba said.
”The rest of the university faculty should emulate what Mastercard Foundation ScholarsProgram was doing, for instance every student of Makerere University should have a mentor, and also undergo entrepreneurship training.” Prof. Kakumba pointed out.
Prof. Kakumba further revaled that going forward Makerere University was going to adopt a strategy where the University would make Entrepreneurship as a first choice career pathway.
”We are all aware of the challenges of youth unemployment in Africa and Uganda in particular. As an institution of learning, Makerere University needs to normalize entrepreneurship as a first choice career pathway for all the graduates.” Prof. Kakumba said.
The Country Director, Mastercard Foundation – Uganda, Mr. Adrian Bukenya, revealed the Foundation was happy with the partnership with Makerere University, which dates back to 2013 with the establishment of the Scholars Program.
”Mastercard Foundation is proud of the partnership with Makerere University, which began with the Scholars Program in 2013, that has educated and empowered over 1000 young people to study at Makerere University.” Mr. Bukenya said.
Mr. Bukenya pointed out that the Foundation was happy to support young people beyond the Scholars Program, to ensute that every young person transitions to diginified and fullfilling work.
”As a Foundation we want a world where young people are included and are thriving and their leadership and contributions matter. A future where young people are driving transformative change and achieving their full potential.” Mr. Bukenya said.
Ms. Pauline Gangla,the Head of the Scholars Program, Eastern and Southern Africa Partner Network at Mastercard Foundation, thanked Makerere University for both the academic and entrepreneurship the university had imparted on the Scholars of Mastercard Foundation.
“I would like to thank the University for the Academic Support and entrepreneurship training given to the Scholars of Mastercard Foundation, here at Makerere University. During the summit it was evident in the way the Scholars pitched their projects, the level of confidence they exhibited was very high.” Ms. Gangla revealed.
Ms. Gangla pointed out that the Foundation was very keen on safe guarding measures, to ensure safety and security of the young in the University.
“The Foundation was keen on safe guarding measures, where there is zero tolerance to any form of misconduct against young people. Young people should be treated with respect and dignity within the University and their communities.” Ms. Gangla pointed out.
