About Casino Danova

Casino DanovaCasino Danova has lived a complete life. Growing up in a political family, he’s met more than his share of famous people. That counterfeit life came to an end when he left home at 17, never to look back. He had a burning desire to see and know back-door America. For two years, he hitchhiked from California to the Atlantic seaboard five times. When those adventures were over, he rode the rails as a hobo for another eight months.
   At age ten, he was hit by a drunk driver. In the hours that followed, he had a near-death experience. Shortly after the tragedy of September 11, 2001, he had a lucid dream which resulted in his book Visions of Heaven. Though not based on his own trauma, it does bring together the recorded events of others who have experienced clinical death.
   His wanderlust during the 1960’s caused him to buy an airplane so he could view the world from above. In 1971, he had to give up flying as his vision began to fade.
   On one last adventure, Casino worked on reopening the Suez Canal in 1974. When his vision failed further, by 1984, he began another career as a counselor and teacher. Within a year, he began conducting workshops for other counselors.
   He soon found his place in life—helping professionals become exceptional therapists. Casino’s unique form of instruction has had a major impact on many therapists who consider him one of America’s most detailed instructors of hypnotic techniques.
   Many fields interest him in addition to teaching. He has written five books:

  • Visions of Heaven: (Fact-based novel, based on NDE experiences)
  • On Becoming A Professional Hypnotist: (Comprehensive text for career training)
  • You Are My Jury: (A true, highly detailed story of child abuse and neglect)(Currently being updated – coming January 1, 2019)  
  • Love Is A Verb! Secrets Revealed: Why some men get more than others. (It takes more than words to love a woman)
  • Intellitoons: (Metaphors you must solve + numerous short stories, both true and fictional)

   Between 1982 and 1984, Casino guest hosted hundreds of radio and TV talk shows., including KSL, KDOT, KUTV and KSFI. Though he has physical limitations now, his exuberant confidence throughout life has allowed him to excel in golf, bowling, flying, home repair, writing and teaching.
   He is very content living with his wife Donna. In their respective families, they have had 13 children and been foster parents to more than fifteen others.
   Casino’s life has primarily centered on children, so when he was called upon to be the surrogate father for his grandson, Jakia, he accepted it without hesitation. It proved to be both his greatest enjoyment and deepest sorrow.
   In You Are My Jury, Casino writes that you must stand up for yourself. If you can’t find a way to do it for yourself, do it for the sake of those who may need your expertise.
   His education has included courses at San Francisco State, Mt. Diablo College, BYU, and San Mateo College. Casino believes it’s more practical to apply psychology to one’s mind, rather than the other way around. As a result, He has been instrumental in changing the lives of nearly 2,000 people during his career. Nothing is more intriguing than to be able to dramatically alter another life after they’ve lived through years of pain and suffering.
   Casino’s motto is simple: Yesterday is of little value to anyone, except to know that you lived through it. Of primary concern is what one is doing today and what (and where) one would like to be in the next 1, 3, or 5 years.
   Certifications since the 1980s include providing continuing education for Psychologists, Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, Nurses, Dentists, and Acupuncturists. Accreditation has also been provided by the California Department of Post-Secondary Education for members of the general public. A textbook on the proper usage of hypnosis by all therapist is a product of the many classes Casino has taught over the past 35 years.
