HEALING: This course is highly
experiential. All students are expected to give and receive guided
imagery sessions. This is can be profound work, and is being held in
a very sacred and transformational place. Our students often reap
many important personal and spiritual benefits.
note, however, that the main focus is not personal therapy, but
rather that of learning and further developing a skill that can be
used in helping others. (Those looking solely for personal therapy or
who are in need of deep healing should seek the attention of a
professional rather than attend the course.)
IN GIVING GUIDED
we have a student who has already taken a class in how to conduct
guided imagery. We respect the leaders in this field, like Shakti
Gawain and Bella Naperstuck. You will discover that every course is
quite different. There are always new techniques to learn, and
each teacher's approach is different, so you will still enjoy this
class, regardless of earlier trainings. There is no competition in
our classes, but simply room for expansion! (We also are happy to see
our grads take courses from the above individuals, if they wish.)
NOTE FOR HYPNOTISTS:
A number of hypnosis organizations will approve this course for
credit for 25 hours of continuing hypnosis education. If you are a
hypnotherapist, check with your certifying organization.
