In this integrative, Level 1 professional certification, students will have the opportunity to focus firstly on their own holistic health through development of a precise map of the human energy anatomy, a personal practice and deepening awareness and self- care. They then apply knowledge gained through first hand experience and self study in a clinical environment.

This group experience is deeply supported for each individual, through shared intention, universal grace and wise counsel from peers as well as the facilitator. Part of the intricate beauty of this training is that it emphasizes the unique ability of each student, supporting the individual in understanding and developing their own innate gifts- aligning through deep health with their Souls purpose, in service of the greater good.

Perfect for:

  • Individuals who want to solely focus on energy healing
  • Students who have completed Fundamental, Traditional, or Clinical Herbalism classes
  • Community herbalists
  • Healing practitioners (example: massage therapists) who want to add new modalities of healing to their services
  • Spa owners and employees
  • Spiritual guides and those who practice magical herbalism, shamanism, and other spiritual studies

What You Will Learn:

Class includes many hours of hands on practice integrating herbal wisdom, vibrational plant medicine, and whole foods lifestyle with energy healing protocols from Tibetan and Usui Reiki, Soul Focused Healing, and Polarity. Students will also be required to complete clinical hours outside of class.

Graduates receive a 225 hour certificate and may be invited by the instructor to continue with Advanced Energy Healing upon completion of the course.

NOTE: A sustained meditation practice is recommended for participation in this class. A phone or in person interview will be required.
