Greetings

Healing Touch Program Director

Dear Readers,

Letter from the Program Director

G reetings from Cynthia Hutchison Healing Touch Program Director Dear Readers, Letter from the Program Director

Welcome to the May 2010 issue of Energy

Magazine! This month’s issue has a theme of self-discovery. I happen to personally know all the authors for this month and remember hearing their stories directly from them. One of the things I most enjoy is to listen to personal stories. It’s also part of what I love about being a Healing Touch practitioner. I am one of those people who benefit vicariously through others stories, in hopes that I can apply what they have learned in their lives to my life. Sometimes it saves me from having to learn a hard lesson on my own!

navigable by highly trained river guides. The temperature varied from around 40 degrees on our first night (I froze…burrrrrr) -- to opposite temperatures of around 120 degrees, when I thought I would literally melt. One time a scorpion decided to hang out on my skirt, which required me to remember to ground, center and attune to this poisonous little guy while river mates removed him from my thigh. One dark evening, one of my daughters found a large, irritable rattlesnake in our camp which was cap- tured and relocated by a guide, but not before causing quite a stir with his hissing, rattling and striking.

A story I would like to share with you about my own self-discov- ery goes back to last July when I joined fifteen people on an oar-rowing sixteen day rafting trip on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. We had four people to a raft and I was allowed to bring one duffle bag of clothing and personal items.The snake-like river alternated between being perfectly calm and glassy to wildly roaring as we rafted 225 miles through about 100 sets of rapids. Several rapids were considered only

On the eighth day, in the middle of the trip, I experienced several hours of hypothermia from not being able to dry out between multiple sets of icy rapids, as the water temperature was un- der 50 degrees. (That’s COLD!) During the hot nights, while I preferred sleeping under millions of stars and the Milky Way, the feeling of critters crawling on my skin often made me resort to spending the rest of the night in a tent. An interesting challenge was sharing one port-a-potty with 16 rafters. We were instructed to always urinate in the river, but fecal matter had to be con- tained and shipped along with us throughout the entire journey until it could be disposed of at the end of our 225 mile excursion.

Early each morning we broke camp and headed out, often stopping along the way to enjoy unbelievably beautiful hikes in canyons, such as Havasu Falls and Deer Creek -- paradise-like places. By 6:00 p.m. we would set up a new camp on a beach along the way. Within our first two days together, we all pretty much knew how to work as a team and how to prioritize our needs and safety. It was amazing!

This trip was truly an adventure for me in body, mind and spirit. The external environment was rich in beauty and majesty, especially the night sky, the ever present winding river and the gigantic canyon walls which sometimes towered almost 2000 feet above us on either side. The inner adventure of fac- ing new circumstances, new learning, and challenges was an

equally fascinating journey. I had to face my fear of water and of cold, survive with few personal possessions, adjust to physi- cal discomforts, remain positve, and learn to be more flexible, creative, tolerant and trusting. I went from initially fearing the rapids to a combination of respecting them, letting go of a good degree of fear, and embracing them like nature’s version of a roller coaster ride.

While I learned about myself through self-observation, prayer and journaling, I also learned a great deal from my canyon colleagues who varied in age, sex, occupation and spiritual orientation. It became so easy to be present to another amid pristine nature without the noise of telephones, traffic or other normal mundane distractions. Healing Touch came in handy on a number of occasions when I used it to relieve two sprained ankles, headaches and anxiety.

When I arrived home, after what felt like a rather surreal and magical life-changing experience, I started to think of each day in general as being a kind of daily journey of riding the waves, winds and canyons of life. I had a new awareness that I would be meeting interesting people and critters, new circumstances and accompanying challenges, and that I would be experienc- ing awesome and indescribable beauty (in places and faces) and body-mind-spirit adventures. My Self Discovery was that my sixteen day encounter with the Grand Canyon became a self-encounter with Cynthia. It inspired me to remember the inner adventure of my daily life, realizing that no day is ordinary or without beauty -- no day is without tremendous opportunity for growth and learning, or without the opportunity to face fears and overcome them.

May each of you who read this allow yourself some time to reflect upon what self-discoveries you have made over the last year, month or week. We never know what is beyond the next bend of the river of our lives, but we can be sure that despite its appearance -- benevolent forces protect us, nudge us to “pay attention” and to embrace the opportunity to be present and fully alive.

With the joy of self discovery,

Cynthia

Announcements & Letters Healing Touch Program is thriving in MN! Healing Touch Program was well represented

During our Level 6 new instructor training in Boulder, Colo- rado, we invited local instructors to meet and cheer on our new instructors on April 30th. What a fun gathering and reunion we had while we shared lunch, inspirational stories and interest- ing historic moments. Several elders joined us which made our meeting even more special. Current HTP instructors are always invited to repeat Level 6 (a 32 hour course) at no charge. This round, “seasoned” instructors who joined us were Mary Du- ennes, Nicole Kasemir and Jean Marie Givens-Myers.

A huge step forward was taken towards accreditation this month as HTP held a meeting of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) all day near Denver on May 6th attended by eight SME volunteers and was facilitated by Janna Moll HTCP/I and Dale Ferg HTCP of Energy Medicine Specialists. Cynthia Hutchison, Program Director, Chris Gordon, Accreditation Project Man- ager, and Sue Walker, HTCP, SME and Accreditation Project Assistant were there to help support and lead the meeting.

This working meeting was part of creating much of the back- ground documentation that will be used in the accreditation process and that helps build on the foundation we have already made. Much work has been being done in accreditation behind the scenes for a while, and even though it has seemed quiet, much work has been accomplished. Action towards accredita- tion will begin to become much more visible very rapidly as more volunteers are needed and asked to help as the process accelerates.

All of us at HTP are grateful for the hard work and participa- tion of the SMEs that are helping to keep this process moving forward, and particularly thankful for the outstanding volunteer coordination being done by Sue Walker and the expert guid- ance we are receiving from our consultants, Janna Moll and Dale Ferg!

SMEs for this gathering celebrated a toast to HTP working toward becoming the fi rst nationally accredited energy medicine program: Brenda Fister, Dale Ferg, Janna Moll, Deborah Porter, Kitty Kelly, Cynthia Hutchison, Kristi Joy, Lauri Pointer, David Barnett, Bonnie Thompson, and Sue Walker. Please raise a toast in your own communities to this wonderful accomplishment!

We anticipate needing a pool of about sixty SMEs as we de- velop the multiple choice test questions that will become part of the future accreditation process. If you are an HTCP and have an interest in being part of this exciting process please let us know at aap@healingtouchprogram.com. Those that have already volunteered will be hearing from us shortly.

Self

Discovery

by Margaret Nies

If you have started thinking about where you are at in your life, you have started on the journey of self-discovery!

Self-discovery is a journey that continues our entire lives. Each of us is in charge of our own journey. Our quest takes us to new and different places, at different periods in our life, as we grow and change. Each new discovery builds on the previous, build- ing a wealth of wisdom and understanding that serves not only us, but also those around us.

Learning is intertwined with the path of self-discovery. Learn- ing provides opportunities for the discovery of new skills, creativity, and to acquire knowledge. More than that, it offers you an opportunity for renewal, excitement and the fulfillment of curiosity. Learning lets you explore new ideas, concepts and ways of being.

We all have new things we want to experience in our lives, things we want to try, things we still want to know about. The key

is to begin. Take that first step, now. Don’t put it off until “some-

day when

.” It takes courage and persistence to begin. But

. . once you take that first step, an amazing world begins to open.

The universe becomes attuned to your thoughts and desires.

moves from the Divine to your inner core and back out into the world. The benefits of the learning process appear in all aspects of your life. Relationships with others grow and improve. Most significant is the change in how you will feel about yourself.

As an educational program, Healing Touch, offers one path of self-discovery. Healing Touch encourages learning to listen to one’s inner guidance or intuition and taking time to become self aware. It provides a structure for an adventure into the world of energy medicine. It opens doors to possibilities for healing, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, for both the individual and for others in their world.

So often we hear students new to Healing Touch say that they have been “searching for something.” Their quest for self- discovery is urging them to seek “something” new and fulfilling and Healing Touch strikes a cord within them. Healing Touch Instructors and mentors have often witnessed transformational change in students as they progress in their path of self-discov- ery. This self-discovery ripples outward into the world and we are all blessed!

As you learn and get absorbed in a new endeavor, you are giv- ing yourself the chance to experience an energetic flow that

I like to be creative, combining several things for a fabulous outcome. Get the most “bang for the buck” so to speak. While working on my own healing and spiritual path I created the Bless- ing of the Quilts. To clear my clutter and open space for new growth, I decided to recycle the scraps that were left from my previous sewing business. I had half a brain’s worth of clutter. I mean good fabric waiting to be something won- derful for someone else. When I had my busi- ness, the scraps (some more than six yards long) were eventually used in some way. At that time it was not a scrap pile, it was my personal stash - a collectors dream. Now it was tak- ing up space - not only in my house, but in my life. There was so much time involved in deal- ing with it while packing and unpacking when I moved. (I had already made two moves with it and knew I would be moving again the follow- ing year.) This fabric was also good fabric, too good to just throw out. I had previously offered all of it to several sewing groups in my town - who turned it down. This is absolutely unheard of in sewing circles - turning down fabric- what were they thinking?! Then, it hit me -- ta da! Clear my clutter by making it a blessing for someone else. This fabric needed to be made into quilts for The Denver Children’s Hospital.

When I started the project I was just making quilts. Through-

out the months of making them the project grew or shall I say evolved. What was interesting was that previously when I sewed,

  • I always listened to the radio. However, from the very begin-

ning when I worked on these quilts, it was different. I worked in silence, often spending the day in prayer for the children who would receive them. I came to understand that the fabric was not accepted by the groups to whom I had offered it because this project needed to be done and I was the one to do it.

  • I started to intuitively receive information about the children who

would be receiving the quilts - seeing, hearing, feeling, sensing, and knowing. These children all needed so much love and heal- ing. I had fabric stacked on my table, chest high, double wide rows, covering the entire length of my 110” table. That was just the start. In the middle of choosing fabrics and piecing together what I thought I was making I would hear “no not that - she or he does not like that color. Get that piece in the pile over there.”

  • I was always surprised because the fabric to which I was led

was usually one that I had not seen and about which I had for- gotten. The color combinations became things I would not have put together - some very unusual for me. As I worked, if I tried to go with something other than what I heard, it did not work. It would be either just a few inches short of what was needed or the sewing machine would freeze up. I quickly learned that whatever I heard I might as well do, because anything else would not work no matter what I did.

Learning to Listen

Once I began listening to instructions, the information started flowing. The information was definite – “today we’re making one for a little girl or this one is for a little boy.” I learned about the children -- the Navajo baby boy from one of the Dakotas, a little boy from Minnesota, many for preemies, some age two or four. There was a three-four year old little girl whose quilt was quite plain. I kept thinking I needed to change the back so it would just be plain on the front when I “heard” that hers was a brain issue and she could not tolerate looking at too much. There were preemie twins, a boy and a girl. All I knew was that she was struggling more than he was. There was an African Ameri- can girl who likes soft and pink - hers was made with satins and velvets. Every quilt was meant for a specific child, the stories of each unfolded as the quilts came together.

  • I had the tops of two quilts done in the first days. For some reason, I could not finish them. One was larger - the backing

  • I picked was brown velour, nice and soft. Every time I picked

it up, it did not feel right. Finally, when I was almost done I needed some more batting to finish another quilt. I went to look in a box I had not opened yet and found a soft flowery print un- der the batting. I knew instantly that it was the correct fabric for the unfinished quilt. I had thought all along it was for a little boy. It was not - it was for a little Hispanic girl of around four. The other quilt was soft fabrics, pinks, some solid, some with a print - one with X’s & O’s. I loved the quilt and at the same time could not bring myself to finish it. She was very special, small, and very ill. I finally finished the edges in creamy bridal satin - the very best. Everyone who saw the quilts could identify that one without me saying a word.

At the time I was also working towards my certification for Heal- ing Touch. I knew if we could heal from a distance that the pos- sibilities of what could be done were endless. Why not infuse the quilts with love and energy? I decided to ask other healers to help. Fun and fabulous things need to be shared! I thought all of us would gain something unique to us. I also received information that the quilts, once filled with energy, would be self sustaining. They needed to be continually passed on to others because they had a lot of work to do. To do this I could request the help of Angels to prompt the owner of the quilt to pass it on.

copyright © 2010 Healing Touch Program

When the quilts were completed (32 in all) I took them to a beautiful overlook off the Blue Ridge Parkway above Asheville, NC. There, I met with the other healers who were participating. We prayerfully infused the quilts with love and healing energy. Healing stones were also used. The stones used were Kunzite for accessing Angel energy, Celestite also for Angel energy, Selenite for higher vibration for the purpose of intuition and healing, Sugilite and Infinite known to be healers’ stones, and Moldivite which is strong, powerful, and assists with the trans- formation process. The vibrations of these stones in concert with one another were very high - enhancing and supporting the intentions of the quilts. We prayerfully requested that each quilt would have its own Angel to see that it passed from child to child, guiding it, until it disintegrates. Now that the quilts were blessed, they were ready to be taken to The Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado.

My car was packed and the quilts were on the seat behind me as we left South Carolina. I tend to be sensitive to electromag- netic energy in large doses. In big cities, we normally take back roads and bypasses to avoid overload. However, on a trip of this nature, high energy areas were just not possible to avoid. Atlanta is a place where I usually do not venture. As we neared the city I could feel the intensity of the energy, overloading me and I felt ill. My husband suggested that I use one of the quilts to see if it would help me. I thought “I can’t do that,” when I heard “use the quilts!”

  • I reached behind me and pulled a quilt to the front seat. It was the largest one, interestingly. I did not remember it being on top. I unfolded it over me. Instantly I felt calm, very tired and could not keep my eyes open. The next thing I heard was “it’s okay now, wake up.” I sprung up - surprising my husband and asked where we were. He said that we were about 20 miles out

of Atlanta. I could not believe it! It was as if I had been anesthe- tized -- instantly out and awakened when finished. When I real- ized what happened I was ecstatic - I had worked on this great project that just kept getting better. I knew then that everything

  • I had wanted and for which I had worked so hard - these quilts were exactly what they needed to be. I felt privileged to experi-

ence the healing power of the energy that the other healers and

Learning to Listen

  • I had infused into them, as well as, the Angelic guid- ance that had been requested.

It also got better! I do not sing. I like to, but it is not my gift as in -- REALLY not my gift! If, you know what I mean? When they were born, I am the mother whose children requested, “Mama please don’t sing!” The whole trip - the whole trip I could not keep quiet, all three days. I sang childrens songs the entire way. I could not stop if I tried. When my husband talked to me

  • I would answer the question and keep singing. At one

point he asked “Are you going to do this all the way?”

  • I just shrugged. I sang songs I knew and ones I had

never heard before. There were a few with tribal beats, others made me think of Indian songs and folk songs. It was interesting. I decided that each child had his or her song. Songs that their families sang to them or the ones that would be their favorite. I was being included and thanked by this sharing of part of their lives.

Once in Denver the blankets were delivered to The Children’s Hospital. The Director of Volunteer Services graciously accepted the blankets. As I left the hospi- tal, I felt a sadness come over me as if I was leaving behind someone I dearly loved. The tears came. In that moment I knew that my sadness and the loss I was feeling were the Angels that had been with me throughout the whole process. I had been surrounded by them for months, all day every day. Understanding what was happening I blew them a kiss and thanked them for all of it. We parted -- I, having finished my les- son on learning to listen -- the Angels who accompa- nied the blankets, off on their own journey of healing.

What a blessing! I keep listening and it just keeps get- ting better!!

Heart to Heart Connection with Horses to Raise Your Vibrational Energy Healing Field
Ellen Kay Gehrke, Ph.D. MBA, Bsc., HT I, II and III, HTA I
José R. Criado, Ph.D., MS, B.S and currently working on a Master’s in Integrative Health
Friday, August 6th 2:00 - 3:30pm
This workshop introduces the power of the heart of the horse to help raise vibrational energy in human heal-
ers. The presenters introduce research they conducted between horses and humans using heart rate variabil-
ity. Horses and humans were attached to ECG monitors and simultaneously measured during various states
of interaction. When humans were mindful and open to the horse energy fields their parasympathetic activity
improved. Participants will practice or experience a heart attunement activity with horses.
Ellen Kaye Gehrke is a Professor of Community Health and the lead faculty for the Master’s
Program in Integrative Health at National University in San Diego. She has been conducting HRV
related research with horses and humans for the past 5 years. Ellen has developed energy medi-
cine leadership programs for healthcare leaders and provides personal development and coaching
for humans with her ten horses. She has completed HTP Level I, II and III as well as HTA I and has
been trained in animal communications.
José R. Criado is graduate student in the Master of Integrative Health program at National Univer-
sity in San Diego. He is also a staff scientist in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Neuro-
science Department at the Scripps Research Institute. His main research objective is in facilitating
the translation of basic science knowledge into clinical tools, which aims at helping diagnose and
treat neurological dysfunction. He is interested in integrating tools from the fields of Biomedical
Sciences and Biofield Energy to study novel approaches to diagnose humandisease.

S elf-care has always been a

major underlying philosophy in

Healing Touch. In fact, Janet Mentgen said on more than one occasion that Healing Touch is really all about self-heal- ing. As one of her early students, I often pondered what she meant by that — I thought we were learning energy work to be of service for others. How was taking care of myself going to help others?

That was in my early days. Twenty years later, I am still dis- covering the task of self-care and self-healing every day. On my spiritual journey, I have realized the importance of inte- grating many different modalities not only for me but for my clients, as well. Energy healing, whether it is Healing Touch, Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry, Reiki, or Therapeutic

How to Use

Essential Oils

for Self Healing

By Linda L. Smith, RN, MS, HNC, HTCP, CCA

Touch—is all about vibrational frequencies. Underlying prayer and intention -- we find vibrational frequency and beneath the chemistry of essential oils—vibrational frequencies as well.

How Can Essential Oils Aid in Self-Care?

Essential oils are the life-blood of plants. Just as we have blood in our bodies that carry nutrients, oxygen and heat to all the cells of our bodies, the essential oil in a plant fulfills the same responsibility in the plant. These essential oils are often antimicrobial in nature. They protect the plant from invading bacteria and viruses, and help heal traumas. Thousands of years ago, man first used living plants for food and medicine. Somewhere in history, someone discovered how to extract this living essential oil from the plants. Steam distillation is the most common method used today - with cold expression being used for citrus oils.

What About the Quality of Essential Oils?

An unsuspecting person might think that the Health Food Store is the best place to look for “quality” essential oils and that is actually the LAST place one should look. Why? Because the processes involved in obtaining pure unadulter- ated quality oil is very expensive and will be reflected in the price. What is available in stores may only be perfume grade at best. Perfume grade oils may in fact come from organic plants but not necessarily be therapeutic quality. They may smell nice but may have little or no healing quality to them at

How to Use Essential Oils

all. In the United States there are no set standards. You can have one drop of the real oil in a bottle with alcohols and other extenders and still be able to put “100%” therapeutic on the bottle. Where can you find true therapeutic oils? You will need to do your homework and search the internet. But don’t stop there—call up the providers of the essential oils and ask some very important questions such as, do you grow and distill your own plants? Do you use fertilizers and pesticides? (These will poison the plants.) Is every single batch of oils tested by using gas chromatography (a process whereby every single compound is identified)? Do they abide by the standards set by the French who are the masters in the art of essential oil distillation? You may need to find a friend who can direct you to the company with the highest standards and who ethically is responsible for every bottle of essential oil sold.

Using Essential Oils for Self Care

Essential oils can be used to support every system in the body. There are specific oils helpful for the respiratory, circulatory, muscular-skeletal, genitourinary, nervous, endocrine, and reproductive systems. There are specific oils helpful for the skin and to improve immune function. Essential oils are lipid soluble and can penetrate cell membranes. They have been measured to bring an increase of 21% oxygen to the cells within 20 minutes of application. This allows cells to function normally and release their chemical toxins in an oxygen rich environment. Many essen- tial oils are high in antioxidants; in fact, clove oil is the highest antioxidant found in nature and is 10 million times higher than blueberries, raspberries or even pomegranates.

Essential oils high in sesquiterpenes can cross the blood-brain barrier. Can drugs do that? Some essential oils can relieve physical discomfort and pain. Some can help combat the spread of disease. In fact, many were used in ancient times to counteract plagues of all kinds. Essential oils have the ability to release emotional traumas stored in the limbic system of the brain. Essential oils have been used to treat everything from lice and warts to brain damage and cancer. Essential oils have formed the medicine chest of people around the world for thousands of years -- until we discovered in the 18th century how to take apart an essential oil and mass produce certain chemical compounds found within the oils. This, by the way,

copyright © 2010 Healing Touch Program

was the birth of the pharmaceutical industry. Any essential oil that has been “doctored” by man by either removing a compo- nent or adding to it so as to improve upon nature, destroys the therapeutic healing property.

Where is the research to back up these claims? Actually, there is no money to be gained by doing research on things that come from nature—you can’t patent it. Fortunately, there is substantial research to back up everything I have said in this article. This research has primarily been done by Europeans and particularly by the French. Some of the more famous French doctors conducting these studies have included Dr. Jean Valnet, MD, Dr. Daniel Pénoël, MD, and Dr. Claude LaPraz, MD. In a research summary produced by Dr. Carolyn DeMarco, MD (Canadian) in 2006, a number of essential oils were identified as important in destroying disease-causing bacteria, molds and viruses. 1

What Are Some Self-Care Uses for Essential Oils Today?

We use essential oils as first aid for cuts and scrapes, relaxation, to help prevent colds and flu, pain management, depression, to support immune function, as a natural antibiotic, for restful sleep, natural pet care, natural cleansing products, to enhance nutritional supple- ments and personal care products, and to eliminate unwanted odors.

Essential oils are not just “nice- smelling” additions to self-care. They can be an integral part of keeping yourself healthy. Educate yourself. Learn how essential oils can improve your health and well-being. As you improve—your vibrational frequency will rise and whether people are aware of your changes or not—at some level they will sense your higher vibration and will be attracted to your light!

A Personal Journey of Divine Remembering
A Personal Journey
of Divine Remembering

by Franny Harcey, HTCP, Healing Touch Instructor

As I reflect on my journey over the past ten years, I have to smile as I remember all the won- derful people who have touched my life and have helped me evolve. The instructor for my very first Healing Touch class was with one of Healing Touch Program’s Elders, Nancy Burns. I remem- ber sitting there during the first 30 minutes of class, watching, listening and absorbing all the energy information and I thought to myself; “This is what I am supposed to be doing with my life. Energy work”, and to this day Nancy continues to bless me with her wisdom.

Healing Touch is the foundation of all the work and exploration I have done since that beginning class. Working with Janet Ment- gen, as my mentor, only helped facilitate my deep personal growth and self discovery. Janet would say -- (maybe not these exact words, but close) “Healing Touch is the structure with which we only begin our work. It is important to have a structure so that we may expand on it.”

Taking Janet’s words to heart, I delved into reading over one hundred books, studied under many teachers of different energy based and body centered therapies, and continue to embrace each new learning experience with the eyes of a beginner.

As of late, I have spent time with Rudy Noel, who graciously blessed Janet with the Mind Clearing and Hopi Technique that are taught in the Healing Touch Program. Rudy reminds me of this very thing as well -- “We build from the basics and always have techniques and tools to pull from our tool belts.” Rudy strives and has taught me to strive to never settle for a tech- nique, but to continue questioning and developing ourselves with a feverish desire to not only live from a place of pure love, but to truly “be” that love in every moment.

To grasp a deeper understanding of myself and those with whom I work, I have delved intensely into Mind Energy Body

Psychotherapy training with Carolyn Eberle. The most intense part of Me-B training is exploring where trauma, illness, disease, negative beliefs, unhealthy ego and core distortions are held within the three systems - mind, energy and body. From these realizations, how do we shift ourselves in all three systems?

We begin by tracking the energy system, tracking what the mind and body are saying and discovering which of the three systems holds the truth, then bringing all these systems in line so that trauma, illness and any distortions may fully transform. By living and working from the place of the Core Being - the light which we all are in our purest form - we are able to em- brace our dark and our golden shadow equally. Holding this place for ourselves and assisting another to shift when they are ready - is the gift in Me-B Transformation work.

So while on this path of self discovery, it is my passion to con- tinue to learn and embrace what fits into my truth of how I heal myself and hold a place of healing for all others. As a Healing Touch Certified Practitioner, I embrace the teachings of Healing Touch as my basis and the framework for how I work with cli- ents. I bring myself to each client having the structure of a great ethical practice, documentation skills and deepened knowledge of self, and non-judgment of each client and all situations. Blending all that I have learned and continue to learn, as a healer, I embrace my own divine essence and feel extremely joyful to be the vessel for others on this amazing journey of re- discovering and remembering our true divine core being -- that which is our true self.

Just Do the Work and see What Else is Possible

by Cindy Palajac, Hon. B.A., Dip. Adult Ed., HTCP/I

Yesterday was my day off and the farthest thing from my mind was “doing the work of Healing Touch.” I enjoyed a lovely hand reflexology treat- ment, went to the chiropractor with my daughter, had lunch and went to yoga with a girlfriend.

Then around 3:00 pm, as I followed my guidance to stop by a restaurant and pick up my daughter’s pay check, I was not aware that spirit was leading me to “do the work.” When I en- tered the Huron House Restaurant the owner was on the phone with 911 because a patron was in cardiac distress. I asked if I could help and he said, “Yes, go to the back of the restaurant”. The woman in distress was sitting up but appeared disoriented. I asked for permission from her daughterto do energy healing and proceeded to hold her shoulders, comfort her with words, work up and down her spine and then hold the front of her forehead and back of her neck. I continued to do Healing Touch as we waited for the emergency squad to arrive but I became acutely aware of the distress the daughter and sister were in. I was also aware that their stress increased once the paramed- ics arrived. I encouraged them to breathe deeply and stay calm and just allowed them to talk.

to be her mother. It turned out that it was her boyfriend’s moth-

er. As I sat in my car and watched them scream at each other,

  • I held my center and remained grounded. The teenager had

dented this woman’s car with her purse. As the yelling intensi- fied I grounded more and sent them peace. The teenager then ran after this woman who yelled at me to call the police. “Keep holding your place of peace in the midst of chaos,” I reminded myself. The woman outran the teenager and the boyfriend per- suaded the girl to leave.

When the police arrived, the woman told them it was just a family disagreement between her and her son. This incident reminded me of the chaos some people live in and how they are not even aware of how to stay calm, speak respectfully and communicate from their heart. I left and thanked the universe for the opportunity to be present and peaceful.

  • I finally made it to my daughter’s soccer game at 4:30 pm, in

time to see the last half. They won 1-0. It was nice to stand on

solid ground, connect to the earth and have the sun shine on me after the previous two incidents. How was your day off? Any opportunities “to do the work?”

We never know when we will be called on to “do the work” and the wonderful thing is that our hands and open heart are always present for us. May opportunities to “do the work” appear for us almost on a daily basis. Keep asking the question, “What else is possible?” I asked myself that question as I left the restau- rant and drove to my webmaster’s who needed a DVD for my website. Little did I know I would be “doing the work” again, but in a different way.

When I pulled into her condo complex to park my car, there was a 16- year old teenage girl yelling profanities at what appeared

Today, I am back at work and it is quiet -- so far.

The ‘Clown’ Chakra

by Sharona Ben-Sorek, RPT, HTP

The enthusiastic new Level 4 apprentice stopped me in the cafeteria before break- fast on the last day of class. “Where is the ‘Clown’ chakra?,” she asked. “Some people said that you mea- sure it here [she had her hand on her head], and others said that it was here [other hand near her clavicles] at the high heart. Where is it exactly?” “Well, it’s here at your upper arm - be- cause that’s the humerus,” I replied. I didn’t understand at first that she was serious. She also didn’t get the joke.

The “clown” chakra had been mentioned in her class the previ- ous evening. Once I understood that she truly was having a hard time understanding, I tried to explain in more detail. In October 2007, I had the wonderful experience of having Mary Ann Geoffrey as my Level 3 instructor. During the class, she told a story about a student in a previous class of hers talking about the “clown” chakra. As Mary Ann was talking, an image came to me that I couldn’t ignore for much of the rest of that afternoon. In fact, it only left after I promised that I would do something about it.

The weekend after the class, I went to a craft store to purchase supplies, and shortly thereafter, Chakra Clown was born, complete with chakra indicators and coordinating attire. I mailed the doll to Mary Ann as a token of my thanks to her for all that she taught me in class. I thought that perhaps she would find it funny and set it aside. Never did I dream that it would go further than that, and was honored to read in her thank-you email that she said she wanted to take the doll to future classes.

The following year, as I prepared to go to my Level 4 class, there were several significant and stressful changes in my life.

I realized that I needed some humor to help me deal with

so I found a photo I had

taken of the doll, and made a

T-shirt with the picture on it. I brought the shirt to my Level 4 class and wore it.

Students in my class, as well as in the Level 5 class (which Mary Ann happened to be teaching at the same location) were curious about the background story, and several said that they would like shirts or dolls. I thought about the requests, but truly didn’t have the time to create the dolls for everyone, and said so.

I did wind up creating two more dolls for people who have been key figures in my journey toward certification. Each doll is hand-decorated, and unique, as it is made with the person in mind. It is a rather time-intensive effort and a gift from the heart. However, before I journeyed to my Level 5 class, I did make up a couple of T-shirts, intending to gift people with them. I was honored when one was used as an altar cloth, so to speak, in the Level 4 class that was meeting down the hall from us.

Bringing the shirts to Level 5 has indeed taken things to a higher level (pun intended); my instructor, classmates and many of the new HTPAs from the Level 4 class urged me - repeatedly - to market the shirts. (Yes, I have copyrighted it.) I am slowly coming around to that idea, as I had never intended Chakra Clown to be anything more than a personal gift to those who have touched my life deeply.

But how to explain this to a new Level 4 apprentice who wants to know where to measure the “clown” chakra? “Your ‘clown’ chakra is where ever you hold humor and joy in your body, but I’m not sure that a pendulum will measure its spin. It may be best measured by how often and how sincerely you laugh.”

From Hawaii to Haiti

as a Volunteer Nurse and Healing Touch Practitioner

By Dr. Ann Taylor, RN, CNS, HTCP/I

From Hawaii to Haiti as a Volunteer Nurse and Healing Touch Practitioner By Dr. Ann Taylor,
  • I am writing to share my personal experience in

Port Au Prince, Haiti as a nurse and a Healing Touch practitioner and instructor in late March of 2010. I received an email in mid-February and answered the call from the University of Miami’s Project Medishare seeking healthcare professionals willing to help. I booked my long flight and took off alone from Kailua-Kona to Miami with a backpack and 92 pounds of tents to give away, which I transported in a large suitcase. I joined other nurses, physicians and physical therapists who had volunteered for the same week of duty. We came together and were briefed in the Miami airport by a physician from

the university about what to expect at the tent city, how to keep safe, rules and policies, includ- ing how to learn what your job was each day. As

  • I boarded the charter flight to Port Au Prince, a

place about which I knew little and which I never

thought I would visit prior to the January 12th earthquake, I wondered with eagerness how the next week of my life would unfold.

  • I knew in advance I would be living in a shared tent in 100

degree plus temperatures with pesky mosquitoes, taking cold showers, having one meal a day with no milk for a week, and working long hours. Nothing, not even my recent ten years of volunteering with the poor in Tijuana as a lay associate of the Catholic order, Eudist Servants of the 11th Hour, had prepared me for the wretched conditions and deep suffering of the people and the devastation of the city of Port Au Prince (PAP). As I flew into PAP I observed the deforestation of the mountains and the exposed dirt that had slid down the hillsides during the heavy downpour of rain.

copyright © 2010 Healing Touch Program

University of Miami Project Medicare Haiti (UMPMH) is a tent hospital located on the PAP airport runway. It was set up in a week after the January 12th earthquake. During the week I was there it housed more than 200 patients and 150 healthcare and lay workers. We were instructed to provide the best care we could with the supplies available and to keep in mind that we should be practicing Haitian medicine. The tent hospital had a pharmacy, a lab, a wound clinic that treated over 100 outpa- tients a day, the first ever Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Haiti, an adult and pediatric inpatient tent, Emergency Room (ER), Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), three Operat- ing Rooms (ORs) available 24/7 and two conscious sedation areas. Family members, if available, stayed with their loved ones providing personal care and toileting. There were no screens to place between patients so privacy was just not available. Throughout the week, the patients and families frequently ex- pressed their gratefulness for our coming and our help.

My assignment for the week was in the OR. My qualifications for this new-to-me position were -- I had completed a six-week rotation in the OR as a nursing student in Nova Scotia in 1968; in 1992-1995 I had supervised OR bone marrow collections in my position as Assistant Coordinator of the National Marrow Donor Program in San Diego; and most recently I had taught perioperative nursing to Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) step- up students in 2008.

My lengthy experience in nursing was a great plus as many of the younger nurses were not familiar with some of the supplies that were available for our use. For example, it had been years since I had vented an I/V bottle by sticking a needle into the top in order to make it flow. We had a shortage of nurses and every- one pitched in to care for the patients and families. In the OR we worked 14-17 hour days in hot tropic 100 + degrees of humid

weather with air conditioning that functioned sporadically. I also did one night on-call. I had no idea I could still work that hard.

We saw many patients with crush wounds of limbs, performed many amputations, and debridement and cleaning of limbs. In addition, during my rotation, we completed a colostomy on a 2-day old child, revised a non-functioning colostomy on a child who had been unable to eat for 16 days, did a craniotomy on a motor vehicle accident victim, removed several blocked shunts in children with hydrocephalus, debrided and grafted wounds, did appendectomies, painful daily dressing changes on young burn victims, mastectomies, and many plastic surgeries on patients who had been deformed by the earthquake. Ours was the best medical treatment hospital in the areas so we received many add-on patients in the OR daily by helicopter and ambu- lance from outlying hospitals and orphanages. I found a lady on the back of a motorcycle who had a temp of 105 degrees and assisted her into the camp. She was admitted and later diag- nosed with malaria.

A huge supply tent, nicknamed COSTCO was organized daily by a group of lay workers from Tennessee. The young people who cleaned and sterilized all the OR equipment were a female French Canadian and a male from Russia. A physician’s assis- tant from Denmark who had been at UMPMH for a few months provided some continuity of care in the OR. Everyone pitched in to make things work. Once when the Haitian workers were off busy collecting the next patient, all the OR staff, including the surgeons, helped to carry a heavy patient to the PACU.

After checking with a Haitian nurse about how it would be re- ceived, I taught patients’ mothers and the nurses in PACU, Mag- netic Passes Hands in Motion and other techniques for symptom relief in the children. It was a wonderful experience as we sang Frère Jacques together while trying to comfort their loved ones. I was able to work with the anesthesiologists by doing HT to calm the patients as they were put to sleep before their operations. As four of us were changing the dressings on a young burn patient under conscious sedation, the anesthesiologist com- mented, “What you are doing (HT) and singing Frère Jacques seems to work better than the medications I’m giving.”

The need in Haiti is urgent, great and will continue to be so for years. I am returning to Haiti in June. If you can, come, if you can not, please consider helping someone else be able to af- ford to come. Above all please pray for everyone who goes and all those who are there. Hold Haiti in the LIGHT so that it will heal and rise from its current state of devastation to a level of prosperity that will provide a chance and the hope for a better life for all its people.

A Review of

by Marian Long, RN, HTCP, Healing Touch Instructor

I was impressed and gratifi ed to see the book Creating Right Relationships: A Practical Guide to Ethics in Energy Therapies by Dorothea Hover-Kramer, Ed.D. RN, and Midge Murphy, JD, Ph.D. listed on the application as a requirement to become a Level 1 Healing Touch Program Certifi ed Instructor (HTCI), though I am aware that many HTP students are reading this book as early as Level 1. I was impressed because I felt it showed wisdom and foresight to ensure that potential instructors, such as myself, have given thought to the ethical ramifi cations of what they will be teaching as HT instructors. I felt gratifi ed because this provided a reason to move this book to the top of my priority list of books to read. I purchased the book when it was fi rst published because it was something I had never seen ad- dressed in such depth before, and this require- ment validated the importance of the topic.

Now, after completing the book, my overall response is reso- nance, and the satisfi ed feeling I get when I read concepts articulated, especially for the fi rst time, in effective and mean- ingful language.

paid to the potential risks and benefi ts of energy work, which is sometimes presented as com-

pletely benign.

  • I feel a sense of responsibility for the probably 100 people who

have been introduced to Healing Touch under my “watch” as Holistic Clinical Practice Coordinator, and this book validated impressions and uneasy sensations I had encountered in Healing Touch classes, felt in my own practice, or observed in the practices of others. I have seen people eagerly embrace the concepts of energy therapies so wholeheartedly that they want to denounce the prevailing medical system as danger- ous and obsolete, and offer energy healing to everybody in their life. I have been in classes where intuitive and otherwise caring people offer an unsolicited public analysis of what they perceive as a weakness or emotional issue in another student’s energy fi eld. Also, I have found myself feeling confl icted about charging a friend for a Healing Touch treatment, or blurring the boundaries of colleague and practitioner. All of these situations were addressed, either in the text or in the form of case studies, which were especially eye-opening when they involved the legal system or a loss of license. I can easily see myself using this book as a resource to discuss these and other potential stum- bling blocks as part of a group discussion during classes and practice sessions, and plan to bring it to our next practice group.

As a member of my hospital’s Ethics and Palliative Care Com- mittees, I frequently read articles and discuss case studies addressing ethical issues and concerns, and I am especially intrigued by the challenges of medical ethics. This book ad- dressed a segment of ethics that was totally relevant to my life and practice as a Healing Touch practitioner, in a deep, specifi c and practical way.I especially appreciated the attention the book

  • I was attracted to the book’s title because the concept of Right

Relationship, which I usually attribute to Janet Quinn, acts as a guiding framework for what I do and am as a nurse, a healer,

an energy worker, and a human being in contact with other humans. By framing Ethics in terms of Right Relationships, the authors add heart to their discussion of such topics as market- ing and relationships with other disciplines. As holistic healers,

they also understand the importance of a right relationship with oneself, emphasizing the importance of self-care, self-aware- ness and a personal sense of honor. They enhanced the overall discussion by developing the metaphors of the chakras and archetypes, and citing the contributions of other healers like Carolyn Myss and Donna Eden. I felt the discussion of potential ethical and legal pitfalls using the chakra model was thorough and effective.

  • I especially agree with the warning given by the authors that if

we, as Energy Healers, do not defi ne or regulate ourselves, we will fi nd others doing it for us. It takes experienced energy heal- ers to frame altered states of consciousness as positive healing events, and to understand that spiritual and archetypal energet- ic patterns can infl uence both the client and the practitioner. It is up to us to defi ne this work, refi ne it, and explain it to others.

  • I have long felt that among the many strengths of Healing Touch was the fact that, from the beginning, it was developed by

nurses who understood and navigated the “hoops” of standard- ization and certifi cation. This foresight has given Healing Touch a respectability that many other energy therapies are struggling now to attain, and allows it to advance in hospital systems and other institutionalized settings. Com- mitment to integrity is so inherent in the Healing Touch community and curriculum that in many ways I feel this book is more of a refresher course and commentary of how things generally are, rather than a primer for something that is lacking.

Overall, I felt that the book delivered on what it set out to do – be a practical ethical guidebook for the creation, establishment and maintenance of right relationships with our clients, our colleagues, com- munities, and ourselves. It is also a rich resource for the conversation that energy therapists must continue in order to be regarded as professionals with something safe, effective and valuable to offer.

A Wild Mustang Taught Me Vibrational Energy Medicine

by Ellen Kaye Gehrke Ph.D. MBA

Adopting a Wild Horse:

A wild horse guided me to energy medicine and healing. My experience involved an 8-year old wild mustang I adopted, whom I called Tonopah, since he had been gathered from wild herds in Tonopah, Nevada. I thought that a wild horse would fulfill the dream I had of a connection to the raw foundation of nature, spirit and humans. However, the adoption of Tonopah was frightening - especially to see how he was handled by the Bureau of Land Management wranglers. To see the fear he had and the instinct to be free tore my heart - I felt guilty for wanting to “have” him as my horse. He did not want to have much to do with me for several months -- always running away to the other side of the arena.

A Wild Mustang Taught Me Vibrational Energy Medicine by Ellen Kaye Gehrke Ph.D. MBA Adopting a
  • I could see he felt safer and I felt my heart open more. I did not understand vibrational energy at that time. As I look back, I real- ize I was learning to adjust my vibrational energy so that I could develop a relationship with Tonopah. Horses are truly living biofeedback sentient beings - honest, reliable and consistent.

Learning About Energy and Connection with Others:

It was not until I started working with Tonopah under the guid- ance of a gifted horseman, that I came to understand energy. With regard to horses and humans, this man knew a connection when he saw it and knew that it took energy awareness to find that connection. It was a lesson I needed to learn.

One day, at a horsemanship clinic, I was walking into the round corral to be with Tonopah when he bolted and ran to the other side. I felt dejected and rejected and took the whole thing personally. Then my trainer said, “Ellen, you need less energy to connect to Tonopah. You come into the arena way too big for him and it scares him. Horses are different. It is not about the task so much as it is about the relationship. You can not help a horse feel safe and have him/her think of you in a leadership role unless you know how to moderate your energy back and forth with him.“

It took a long time for me to understand what it meant to come into the corral “big” and “small.” A wild horse is very sensitive to the slightest amount of energy and intention in a human. I had to find “small” or actually “quiet” and to be “present” with Tonopah. As I did, I could see that his response to me changed.

An Agenda Versus a Plan or Being Present and Aware in the Moment

There is a lot of discussion in the healing arts of the impor- tance of being present with self and clients. I thought I knew what that meant. One day I received a big dose of reality while working with Tonopah during a horsemanship clinic in Arizona.

  • I had already spent several years working to help heal a tragic

situation with Tonopah that happened with another trainer. I was making progress - or so I thought. I had gotten a saddle blanket on him several times and he seemed pretty relaxed about it. Be- fore I arrived for my week at the clinic I made a pact with myself that I would saddle Tonopah this week. I began the week with what I thought was a good idea, an agenda for what I would do with Tonopah for the week.

We arrived in Arizona and Tonopah was turned loose in a huge arena. When it came time to gather him in - he was not inter- ested in coming over to me. It took almost half an hour for me to catch him. This wasn’t good -- it showed me that our connection was not going well. He would rather look out over the desert at cows then come over and be with me. I put him in his corral for the night with his other horse pal - still thinking about my preplanned agenda of how I would put the saddle on him the next day – not being mindful that we had an energy connection problem.

A Wild Mustang ...

The next morning, when it came time for my session in the round corral, I walked in with Tonopah in tow after spending a few minutes trying to catch him in his smaller pen. I wrote all this off to the fact that he was still basically wild. I went through the process of moving Tonopah around the round corral in both directions, controlling his speed. He had no ropes or at- tachments. I thought Harry, my trainer, would be proud of how Tonopah and I were working so well together, but his silence said otherwise. I then proceeded to throw the saddle blanket on Tonopah and pat it showing that Tonopah was fine with the blanket. I went over to the rail and picked up my 32 pound saddle and walked back to Tonopah. I was reminded by Harry, “Ellen, you are not to set that saddle on Tonopah unless his head is soft and low and his body is relaxed. Any sign of ten- sion and stress and the saddle stays away.”

  • I stood on Tonopah’s left side, held his lead line in my left hand and hovered over his back with my (heavier and getting heavier

by the second) saddle. I was just about to set the saddle down on his back when Tonopah threw his head and flew away to his right - galloping as fast as he could to the rail of the round corral.

  • I dropped the saddle and felt the tears well up in my eyes. I was sure everyone would feel bad for me at how hard I was trying.

Then I heard Harry ask, “Ellen, are you going to have a pity party for yourself when you just left your horse?” The shock of his statement was so dramatic that I looked up and immediately pointed out that I was still standing in the middle of the arena and Tonopah had left me. What did he mean? “Well, Ellen, the truth is that you left him first. Since you were not present and aware of him in his state he had to leave - it was instinct and survival on his part.”

“What!? I am standing in the middle of this pen and he is over there - I just don’t get it.”

“Ellen, you had an agenda to saddle Tonopah. It was not his agenda. You may saddle him eventually but it will not be a partnership until you let go of your agenda and pay attention to the state of your horse. He was scared. You wanted to put a saddle on him. He left. You felt bad for yourself. Now think about it. You can’t work on an agenda with a horse. Yes, you can have a plan, but not an agenda. Your agenda did not account for Tonopah in his state or need.”

  • I walked up to Tonopah and put on his halter. I led him out of

the round corral - ashamed and embarrassed - but still not fully comprehending what it meant to have an agenda versus a plan.

  • I put Tonopah in his corral and stacked my saddle and blanket in the trailer.

That night I called my husband and wailed at what a terrible day I had working with Tonopah. I told him of the incident and the feedback from Harry about me mentally and emotionally leaving first so Tonapah had to leave for his own protection. “Do

  • I do this to you?” I asked Carsten. There was dead silence. I

was stunned. Apparently I do and my husband is too kind to call me on it in the same way that Harry had. I cried a few tears that evening - my personal “pity party.”

The next morning I awoke early and pulled on my walking shoes. After giving hay to Tonopah and my other horse, Shiloh, I

set out for a short walk that turned into about six or seven miles.

  • I thought long and deep about what it meant to stay present

and aware. I had never thought of my relationship to Tonopah as a partner. I would have to learn how to stay aware, pres- ent and compassionate while being his guide and leader. I felt a little stronger, but sick in my stomach by the time I got back from my desert walk.

When it was my turn to be coached by Harry, I went over to Tonopah’s corral and walked in quietly - focusing on the intense love I had for this horse. I fully expected him to stay on the other side of the 60’ X 25’ corral - but he quietly walked over to me and held his head in such a way that I could easily slip on the halter. I felt my heart soar and a tear well up in my eyes. This had never happened before.

A Wild Mustang ...

We headed to the round corral. I did not stop at the trailer for the blanket or the saddle - the heck with all that - I wanted to partner with this magnificent and wonderful horse and if I never saddled or rode him then, so be it. We walked into the round corral when it was our turn. Harry and the other participants all let out a deep breath and said, “What happened to you two? Things are different!” I did not realize it was that obvious. Harry commented, “Ellen showed up for her horse. Good for her - now they can work together.”

Tonopah continues to teach me energetic connections. Some- times I come home with a lot on my mind and walk out to the horses in this state - holding a halter and ready to catch a horse to go for a ride. If I neglect to shift my heart to be in the pres- ent moment - the horses move away from me in the two acre turnout and do not usually want to be caught. So in the process of walking to them, I make a shift in energy and spirit setting an intention to connect. If I come into the turnout quiet minded, intentional, heart focused, doing no harm and moderating my vibrational energy - the horses come over and compete for who will go for a ride with me that afternoon. Tonopah is the most sensitive partner. There is no faking it with him to this day and we have been working with each now for over 10 years.

A wild horse taught me the true meaning of energy and rela- tionship. He helped me transfer this learning to my teaching and energy practice.

COMMUNITY: There is nothing like a community of like minded people coming together in love and compassion to share, ask questions and grow. We began the weekend with a two hour Social Gathering on Friday night. This gave the attendees an opportunity to meet Cynthia, to ask questions about Healing Touch Program and to connect on a social level. Everyone enjoyed the time together and especially enjoyed being able to reconnect with friends and colleagues they had not seen for awhile. It set a great tone for the weekend workshops.

CONNECTION: These workshops are like family reunions without the drama. There is an openness conducive to speaking freely about energy healing. This is not always available in our day to day lives. In this openness we are free to be who

An Advance Practice Weekend in London, Ontario

by Cindy Palajac, Hon. B.A., Dip. Adult Ed., HTCP/I

Two years ago I asked a group of Level 3 students, “What else do you need to enhance your Healing Touch skills?” The result is this Advance Practice Workshop.

Gathered on a beautiful spring weekend in April were 30 magnificent healers from Southern Ontario who traveled from Windsor, Kitchener and Toronto to the workshop in London, Ontario. Throughout the weekend we held the question, “What else is possible?” .

It was an honor to have Healing Touch Program Director, Cynthia Hutchison, travel from Boulder, Colorado to be the instructor. As one participant stated on her evaluation, “Cynthia’s compassion, understanding and guidance were key to this learning environment. I appreciated her open- ness and true interest in each participant.”

As the coordinator of the Advance Practice Workshop, I want to thank my core group of healers from London, Ontario who kept pushing me out of my comfort zone over the last two years with persistent requests for this course. There are four key words that describe what this weekend was about -- Comfort Zone, Community, Connection and Compassion.

COMFORT ZONE: In stepping outside my comfort zone, I learned how to feel comfortable coordinating a more complex workshop. From an organizational standpoint, there were more details to handle from my normal workshops such as accom- modations, travel directions, massage tables, registration logistics and whether people were coming for one or two days. Comfort Zone is a metaphor for the healing journey that all of us are on. Sometimes we have to break through our “stuff” to realize that it was binding us and preventing us from realizing our full potential.

An Advance Practice Weekend

we truly are and share the love of this work. More experi- enced practitioners learned from younger practitioners as they relived the excitement of their own journeys - enabling them to fully appreciate how far they have come. Younger practitioners heard the stories of the more experienced to realize that they know more than they thought they did -- and that there is always more to learn. How wonder- ful! Mentorship in all its forms was evident -- instructor to instructor, instructor to student, student to student, certified practitioner to certified practitioner, certified practitioners to Level 4 students and so on and so on.

COMPASSION: What a gift Healing Touch has brought to all our lives - allowing us to honor the divine within us, as well as, the sacredness of this work. The compassion shared during the treatments and during conversations was evident throughout the weekend. As one participant stated in her evaluation, “This work is a gift. Excellent weekend. I will remember this experience all the days of my life.” Another stated, “WOW! This was amazing and so informative. It has been awhile since I have participated in the HT community. I’m back!!”

In summary, it was a fabulous experience to coordinate the Advance Practice Class, host Cynthia in our commu- nity and watch the level of confidence and compassion for the work grow among all the healers in attendance. This workshop helped to infuse healers with new techniques, new excitement, and new connections with other healers - encouraging everyone to move forward with their healing practices.

The only question that remains is, “What else is possible?” to build our community of healers.
