A healer is someone who facilitates another person in realizing their inherent wholeness, regardless of symptoms or states of being. Being a healer means promoting healthy feelings, actions, thoughts, and beliefs in a client without compromising the same within themselves.
This class focuses both on developing the framework for deepening into your own healing process and cultivating practitioner skills to guide others through the same process.
You will learn:
How to define your relationship to self and nature
How to cultivate your compassionate witness and therapeutic dialoging skills
How to remain neutral and grounded as a practitioner
How to hold safe space
How to grow your practitioner skills such as intuition and your clair senses (clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience etc)
Visual aids and handouts
Empowered self exploration
Partnered hands on time to give/receive
Safe space to process in community with other healers
***Please note: In this class you will be encouraged to forge your OWN connection to spirit, the elements, and guides. This class will explore the many aspects and facets of being a healer while exposure to many different modalities will help you find what you resonate most with as you explore you own lineages.
My teaching style is structured and comprehensive with room for all the senses to play and integrate the learnings both intellectually and viscerally.
Class size is limited to 12 to ensure quality and integration of core teachings.
The space I hold for this class is one of safety, sovereignty, and compassion. All are welcome to this inclusive and supportive space. I aspire to teach all concepts and practices though a decolonized and non-binary lens.
