Through the understanding of traditional ways, the student will be able to apply these principles to bodywork in any healing environment to facilitate growth of heart, mind, body and spirit within themselves and their client. In this course the student will learn the power of their own thoughts and emotions, and how this understanding plays a major role in allowing the student to become a vessel through which healing power is dispersed. Students who participate in this program will learn how to create the life experiences they have always desired and be able to assist others in doing the same. 

Students will also learn:

  •  The relationship between mental and emotional issues and how they manifest within the physical body.
  •  Fundamental bodywork techniques for emotional and physical release (releasing those emotions that no longer serve you or your client).
  •  Meditation techniques for personal and professional use to prepare client for bodywork to follow.

             > Importance of “listening” and not speaking 

  •  Less is more... compassionate detachment.
  •  “Tools” to create the professional practice and life experience one has always desired as well as help clients to achieve the same results.
  •  Self-care for students and after-care for clients.

This program is designed to allow you, the student to become who you truly are in all aspects of your life and in the vastness of creation. You will learn how traditional teachings and living within natural law, will allow you to create abundance and prosperity in every aspect of your life while helping others (clients) to do the same. The “Becoming Who You Are” program teaches this and so much more. This is truly a life-changing experience and you will have the “tools” needed to continue to build upon these teachings each and every day.

 Module II
“Stepping Through The Door” 

The “Stepping Through The Door” program is designed to help the student to incorporate the Medicine Wheel teachings and The Dualities (everything is itself and its opposite) within the Four Elements teachings, into their own personal and professional growth.

This will add new-found energy and
excitement to the student’s current sessions, creating life-changing outcomes for all involved. The student will learn the art of “Compassionate Detachment” releasing the need to “fix” the client.
