HEALING HANDS

October 26, 2019

Instructor: Trisha Leweke Brown

8 CEUs NCBTMB Approved

Course Time: 9am-6pm

Tuition: $175

Healing Hands‘Healing Hands’ is a term used to describe a variety of wellness methods taught to ‘energy’ healers, lay persons and professional massage therapists throughout the modern world. CE certificates are earned by licensed practitioners while certificates of completion are given to lay persons.

This class reaches into ancient history for its foundation. Healers, Shamans, and Medicine people have been offering this form of hands on, energetic healing for generations. A modern and closely related, contemporary form of this work is from Japan, known as Reiki.

‘Healing Hands’ uses a different symbol system than Reiki yet draws on the same innate wisdom of the universe to bring about balance for the client. The symbols used in ‘Healing Hands’ have been drawn as Petroglyphs and Pictographs in Native American rock art throughout the Americas. In this class you learn how to use those symbols and what they stand for in regards to health and wellness.

Through demonstrations, lectures, Q & A, and hands-on practice sessions, as well as the written manual you will learn how to employ this natural and non-invasive healing art. An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Healing Hands is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred.  You will participate in ritual and ceremony during a free initiation process that, according to Native traditions, allows your hands to dance in harmony with Creator’s energy.    Once the initiation is completed, you will practice Healing Hands with your classmates.

Massage tables will be provided.  Please bring a blanket or linens to lie on for treatment sessions.
