Letter from the CEO
Greetings
from Lisa Mentgen Gordon
CEO, Healing Touch Program
Dear Readers,
Welcome to the March issue of Energy
Magazine with the theme of mentoring.
Here in South Texas we are experiencing warm weather, days
averaging in the lower 80s, trees are leang, spring owers are
blooming, and my cool weather vegetable garden is sprouting.
My mother, Janet Mentgen, founder of Healing Touch, spent
much of her time gardening. She passed her love and knowl-
edge of gardening to myself and my siblings.
The mentoring that we experienced in our home was not a
formal mentor arrangement, but was more a description of
the relationship and roles we had in different activities. Janet
has stated that Mentorship is a dynamic relationship of guid-
ance, support, nurturing, advising, and critiquing that ultimately
prepares an individual to become experienced enough to be a
mentor of others.
Janet knew that learning happens best when a student has a
teacher or mentor that has an interest in seeing the student
reach a higher potential. She understood that knowledge comes
from the combination of instruction, practice, and guidance.
Mentoring is one of the best sources of that guidance. She was
careful to incorporate mentorship into the Healing Touch Pro-
gram, as a way to ensure that knowledge and skill were passed
to each practitioner in a meaningful and individual way.
Mentorship in Healing Touch has been an integral part of the
program from its inception. When the program originated there
were very few people who had developed in this eld of healing.
This created the necessity that we help each other along this
path to becoming healers of energy-based therapies. ~Janet
Mentgen, Healing Touch Level 4/5 notebook.
Mentoring exists on many different levels, from a very formal
mentorship arrangement, like the Healing Touch Program men-
tors, to very informal arrangements, like a mother sharing her
love of gardening.
The benets are not all one way, as anyone knows who has
helped someone to learn or do something. The feeling of
achievement that comes from guiding another to improve them-
selves is one of the most profound feelings we can have. There
is also the fact that in teaching or guiding another we achieve a
level of understanding far beyond what we previously had. The
old adage is that the best way to learn is to teach.
We continue to nurture mentorship in Healing Touch Program
through our new Mentorship Training class, created by Janna
Moll, HTCP/I, which started last year. This class is an excellent
way for people who are interested in being a mentor in Healing
Touch to gain skill and condence in their abilities, while learn-
ing from others who are themselves skilled mentors.
In this issue you will nd two great articles about mentoring.
Sarah Moore takes on an exploration of The Heart in Mentoring
in her article, The Heart of Mentoring and Cyndi Dale nds
mentors in some unusual places in her article, Unusual Profes-
sion: Unusual Mentors.
There is a lot going on in Healing Touch Professional Associa-
tion in this issue as well. There is HTPAs involvement with Voice

Letter from the CEO
for H.O.P.E (Healers of Planet Earth) and the Executive Director,
Sharon Robbins trip to Washington DC, where she gets involved
in taking integrative medicine to our nations policymakers.
HTPA has also launched a couple of new benets. One is
called Community Connections which is a volunteer network for
people to offer their time, and for others to nd help to achieve
their vision.
HTPA has also hosted its second Lets Chat Healing Touch
Stories and Practice Issues call. This is a live open forum that
is turning out to be a wealth of information and a great way to
connect. Be sure and mark your calendar and join us on the
next call Monday, March 28!
You wont want to miss reading about Healing Touch Programs
participation at the Association for Cancer Executives (A.C.E.)
annual conference in New Orleans, Healing Touch and disaster
preparedness and an inspiring story about HT and Bells palsy.
I hope your spring is lled with new inspirations!

Celebratory Announcement:
NCCAM recognizes bioeld (energy based)
therapies as part of its 5 year strategic plan
written by Kathy Moreland Layte, RN, MScN, CS, HTCP/I
Late last year many of you may recall that Healing Touch Pro-
gram and many other organizations interested in energy based
therapy (bioeld) research found out that NCCAM (The Na-
tional Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) of
the National Institute of Health was excluding bioeld research
from its draft strategic plan for research priorities (i.e. funding
for research) based on many issues. Leaders and practitioners
in the eld found out that we had only days to give our input to
the draft plan. The call went out all over the world for a huge
letter and email writing campaign (Facebook and email ac-
counts were burning up) asking those developing the strategic
plan to reconsider exclusion of bioeld therapies because of the
promising research thus far and the need for more research in
this area.
Many of us received an email from NCCAM the rst week of
February. If you click on this link http://nccam.nih.gov/about/
plans/2011, you will nd that bioeld therapies, once consid-
ered to be an other form of CAM are now a part of mind-body
therapies (the original priority for research). This means that
there is still potential for funding of large clinical trials and
studies in Healing Touch and other bioeld therapies through
NCCAM over the next 5 years. Thank you to Donna Eden and
her workshop participants for getting the word out to us, and to
Dr. Shamini Jain, PhD from the Samueli Institute at the Univer-
sity of Arizona and Denise Lewis Premschak from International
Society for the study of Subtle Energy and Energy Medicine
(ISSSEEM) for getting the word out to many leaders in bioeld
research under such short noticeIt seems that our massive
letter writing campaign may have gotten their attention. Whatev-
er the reason, this is news to celebrate! Good research involv-
ing the work opens doors that might not otherwise be opened.
Thank you to those from NCCAM for working so hard to devel-
op a great strategic plan that includes work that we feel holds
such promise.

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled

Each of us has cause to think with
deep gratitude of those who have lighted the ame within us.

I think of my parents, retired schoolteachers,
who, well into their late 70s, spent countless
hours with young children, including their grand-
children, sometimes helping with a specic
homework assignment and sometimes using
their own stories as teaching tools about life.
They acted as mentors reaching into the depths
of their years of experience and working closely
with their students, their colleagues and their
own children and grandchildren. They enhanced
the lives of others by sharing their knowledge
of subject matter and the lessons they learned
through their own life experiences.
At the heart of mentoring, whether it is formal or informal, are
goals and an action plan, and it is through that vehicle that men-
tors share their knowledge and experience while at the same
time offering support. Mentors act as guides and help mentees
to navigate through obstacles and challenges, having learned
the ropes along the way. Mentors encourage exploration and
may, for instance, pose poignant questions with the intent of
helping the mentee draw out his/her own answer or conclusion.
The mentoring experience is also an opportunity for the mentor
to grow. It is another unique life experience offering an opportu-
nity for learning and exploration. A students question can help
the mentor to hone his/her own skills, to have a better under-
standing of concepts and to communicate more effectively,
which is obviously important in sharing information.
This article could also have been titled The Heart IN Mentor-
ing. I think of sharing skills as the technical aspect of men-
toring and the heart we engage as the art in mentoring. The
quality of heart we bring sets the tone for the relationship and
plays a role in how the mentoring process unfolds.
Science shows that a coherent heart rhythm enhances our abil-
ity to learn. We also know from doing energy work that it affects
our energy environment - inside and out. Out of a coherent
heart grows trust, where the mentee feels safe and where his/
her questions are invited, encouraged, heard and acknowl-
edged. The heart is the place where we feel a resonance with
another - or not, if there is a disconnect, a signal that our heart,
mind, nervous system and emotions are out of sync.
The heart IN mentoring also invites the qualities of listening
without judgment and speaking with discernment. Coherent
listening creates a different energetic space, one that nurtures
patience and allowing and safety. Listening from the heart is lis-
tening with compassion and for the questions not being asked.
Speaking from the heart is choosing words that can be heard
while holding space for a deeper experience.
When we bring our coherent hearts into the mentoring process,
we create a rich learning environment for both mentor and men-
tee and a chance to celebrate discoveries, lessons learned and
challenges met which culminate in those AHA moments when
the puzzle pieces come together.
Consciously engaging our hearts by creating a coherent heart
rhythm pattern as we enter into a mentoring relationship allows
The Heart
of Mentoring

The Heart of Mentoring
us to begin with a clean slate for learning and sharing, invit-
ing the chance for both the mentor and mentee to experience
something beyond the sharing of information. Its a shared
experience, and both have a responsibility in the quality of the
role played.
What would you like your mentoring experience to be? What
message will your heart generate? How empowering it is to
know that we can choose, in any relationship, how we will
show up in it. Our relationships, all of them, need the true care
uniquely generated in our hearts. Then, perhaps we too will be
fortunate enough to experience a similar resonance of the heart
space such as that created between an old school teacher and
an eager, bright-eyed child so that anothers life, as well as our
own, might be enriched.

ou just never know when a synchronicity
moment will occur. Such is the story of Healing
Touch Programs invitation to participate at the
Association for Cancer Executives (ACE) an-
nual conference in New Orleans, January 27-29,
2011. Just think of it - a conference full of the
decision makers of major cancer centers all over
the United States! Here is how it unfoldedI knew
Ellen Laffey, HTCP extraordinaire for her work in wound care in
Wisconsin. Little did I know that Ellen is the dear wife of Wil-
liam Laffey, incoming president of ACE and the chairperson for
their annual conference. A former skeptic, he had learned at
the receiving end of a treatment from Ellen, just how wonderful
HT is. He apparently wanted something exciting and different
at the conference this yearsomething that would be different
from the usual discussions about patient navigation and new
documentation systems. He asked Ellen if she could think of
someone who could talk about HT for their conference in Janu-
ary 2011. Ellen spoke with Cynthia Hutchison at conference last
summer. I just happened to be walking by when I heard Cynthia
say in her usually convincing way, Would you like to go to New
Orleans in January to speak to cancer center executives? My
reply was, Sure, why not? I realized that I would feel right at
home given my 22-year career in cancer care and palliation.
Fall of 2010 was a blur of phone calls and ideas between Bill
Laffey and myself. I knew that I was going to have just over
an hour to talk about how I felt HT could/should t into cancer
centers all over North America, but I also thought that nothing I
said would be as convincing as those decision makers experi-
encing HT themselves. I asked Bill if he was open to us having
a relaxation station at the conference. One thing led to another
and, before I knew it, we had designated space in the Exhibi-
tors area. Ellen offered to help and Melanie Trox, a Level 3 HTP
volunteer from Louisiana, (found on the HTPA member forum)
offered via email to join us AND bring two tables and a mas-
sage chair!!! HTP put together packages to help the ACE mem-
bers understand how HT could be brought into their centers,
and we thought that things couldnt get betterbut THEY DID.
ACE ended up donating an exhibitor table to us when they had
one left over. Lisa Mentgen Gordon was able to join us as well.
Ellen, Melanie and I could give our full attention to the confer-
ence participants. We TREATED OVER 50% OF THEM over the
two days! Many of the directors and chiefs of service said that
they had never felt so relaxed and that they were going to look
into bringing HT Level 1 to their staff. We were thrilled and cant
wait to see how things unfold.

So what did I talk about?

This group from the University of Iowa had National Institute of
Health funding support to explore the impact of Healing Touch
on cellular immunity, mood and quality of life and treatment tox-
icities/delays. Sixty women with cervical cancer were randomly
assigned to one of three groups in this prospective trial: Healing
Touch (HT), relaxation training (RT) and usual care (UC). The
HT and RT group received four weekly individual sessions of

their respective therapies immediately following their radiation
during their six weeks of chemo-radiation. Assessments were
conducted at baseline, week 4 and week 6. The investigators
found that the HT group had a minimal decrease in natural killer
cell cytotoxicity (NKCC) over time compared to the NKCC of the
RT and UC patients who declined sharply during their treatment
(p = 0.018). The HT patients also showed signicant decreases
in two indicators of depressed mood compared to the RT and
UC group over time as well. There were no signicant observa-
tions on toxicities, treatment delay, quality of life and fatigue.

Touch and quality of life in women receiving
radiation treatment for cancer: A randomized
controlled trial. Alternative Therapies in Health and Medi-
cine, 10(3), 34-41.
This study explored the impact of HT on the quality of life of
women receiving HT during radiation treatment for gynecologi-
cal or breast cancer. The sample consisted of 62 newly diag-
nosed women who were randomly assigned to receive either
HT or a mock (fake) form of the therapy for a total of six weeks
immediately after their radiation treatment. The participants
were not aware of which treatment they were receiving as it
took place behind a screen (blinding). The ndings were clear.
Those receiving HT reported improvement in all 9 areas of
quality of life measured with statistical signicance in the area
of vitality, pain and physical function (compared to those that
received mock therapy).
Although not a study with an oncology population, another well
conducted study of interest was one done by MacIntyre et al.
(2008).
MacIntyre. B., Hamilton, J., Fricke, T., Ma, W., Mehle, S. &
Michel, M. (2008). The efcacy of healing touch in
coronary artery bypass surgery recovery: a ran-
domized clinical trial. Alternative Therapies in Health and
Medicine, 14(4), 24-32.
The purpose of this study was to determine if HT improved
pain, complication rates and recovery time in patients undergo-
ing elective coronary artery bypass surgery. The investigators
randomized 237 subjects into 1/3 treatment groups; no inter-
vention; partial intervention (visitors) or HT group. Postoperative
length of stay, incidence of post-op atrial brillation, use of
anti-nausea meds, amount of narcotic use, functional status
and anxiety were the outcomes of interest. Although the investi-
gators found no signicant decrease in use of pain medication,
anti-nausea meds or incidence of atrial brillation, they did nd
signicant differences in anxiety scores and length of stay in
the HT group compared to the other 2 groups. The HT group
averaged discharge one day earlier than the control group. This
amounted to an estimated cost savings of $500,000 annually!
Although the study doesnt center on the oncology population,
the potential for decreased lengths of stay and cost savings
certainly got the groups attention!
And what managers wouldnt like this study?

(2010). Improving the well-being of nursing leaders
through Healing Touch training. Journal of Alternative
and Complementary Medicine, 16 (8), 1-5.
In this Quasi-experimental single group pre/post-test study, 24
nurse leaders took Level 1 of the HT Program to determine any
changes in their subjective measures of stress and heart rate
variability 12 weeks before and 4 weeks after the training. The
investigators found in the 20 who completed the post workshop
assessments, there was signicant improvement in self-report-
ed stress, depression, anxiety, relaxation, well-being, and sleep.
Heart rate variability changes were also signicant suggesting
improved autonomic function consistent with greater well-being.
The investigators concluded that Training nurse leaders in an

academic health center in Healing Touch is associated with
signicant improvements in subjective and objective measures
of stress.
I also focused on 7 key reasons why I felt HT should be brought
into every conventional healthcare setting - I spoke as a former
skeptic, researcher, former nurse manager and former stressed
out nurse. It was easy to nd the reasons. They are now sum-
marized in the Healthcare Package.
Now dont think we didnt have some fun, too. We walked
(and walked) and did I mention we walked all over the French
quarter and the French Market? We pestered our concierge.
We saw lots of masks and other Mardi Gras wear. We sifted
through tacky souvenirs! We shared wonderful food, laughs and
company (thanks Ellen, Bill and Michael) and got to feel the life
force of New Orleans. We had a wonderful time and thank the
planning committee of the conference for treating us SO well.
Weve been invited to next years conference as well and we
cant wait.

Unusual Profession:
Unusual Mentors
Being a healer isnt always easy. The idea is
often more glamorous than the reality.
Besides the constant struggle of explaining what you do, there
is the fact of working on invisible energies with usually invis-
ible methods. How many times have I wondered if I was really
helping or doing more than waving a magical wand and uttering
Abracadabra? For these and countless other reasons, energy
healers need mentors and ongoing guides as much as do allo-
pathic healers; maybe even more, because of the weird factor.
Through Healing Touch Program, you are provided an amaz-
ing and brilliant source of mentorship. One of the Programs
strongest assets is its built-in system for ongoing development
via the elders and instructors. The truth is, though, that all Heal-
ing Touch Program practitioners are of such a caliber everyone
learns from each other, just different things and in different
ways. I only wish Healing Touch Program had existed when I
started my journey as a healer almost thirty years ago. I believe
my healing path would have been much more smooth and even.
The meandering nature of my path did, however, teach me to
be open to unusual founts of guidance, many outside, not only
inside, of the box. As an example, one such teacher lived deep
in the darkness of the Amazon. I met him when leading a
group to Peru.
Our objective was to study with a particular shaman, Don
Hermon. For his part, Don Hermon wanted to introduce us to
his instructor of eight years. He asked if we could journey to his
teachers home, and I said yes.
Journey we did, in wooden canoes that barely oated on the
water. After disembarking, we hiked for what seemed like
hours through the jungle, a young man clearing the path with
a machete, as we slowly and miserably proceeded. We nally
reached a clearing.
This is my teacher, Don Hermon said proudly, pointing to a tree.
I wondered how the group participants were taking this, but
they seemed kosher with the idea. Then suddenly, the tree
seemed to stir and a nest of bugs ew out, surrounding one of
the participants and stinging her everywhere.
I felt as if the tree were guiding me toward a solution, encour-
aging me to actually trust the belief in healing that I professed.
Taking out my lip balm, I covered the participant with the
camphor and assured her that she could be healed. The welts
immediately disappeared.
I didnt stay in the jungle to continue studying with the tree. It
was a one shot deal, but the lesson went home with me.
From that time onward, I welcomed the variety of teachers (and
lessons) the Divine set on my path. The year of the tree, I also
consulted a nancial therapist, who helped me structure my
business. A new therapist provided me insights on boundary
setting. A chiropractor took me under his wing and taught me
the link between physiology, symptoms, and spirituality.
It seems now that Im constantly being assigned healing
teachers, even when I dont think I need one. As a case in point,
my oldest son Michael recently taught me an important lesson
about the relationship between energy and practicality.

At his encouragement, I decided to give up the ghost and buy
a new car. Id been puttering around in my mothers eighteen-
year-old Pontiac Sunbird, and as he pointed out, Theres no
healing power in the world that can x that thing, Mom. Besides,
theres something kind of spooky about driving a car thats so
loud the dogs are too scared to jump into the backseat.
Michael came along to test-drive Jeeps with me, but I still
couldnt decide between two vehicles, so I called a friend for
her opinion.
Wow, Cyndi! I think you should get the Compass! It will help
you nd your direction in life, and its red, so your rst chakra
will get a huge boost. (And this is from a lawyer.)
After hearing this advice, my son rolled his eyes and said,
Mom, this is why you have me around. Not everything is about
energy and healing. Lets just stick to safety and the bottom
line, okay?
I drove away with a new red Compass that day, not only be-
cause of my rst chakra and the energetic meaning of the Jeep,
but also because it was a great buy. Lesson learned! There are
lots of teachers in life; I simply have to stay open to what they
have to teach me. And who knows? That Compass might point
me toward vacationland any day!

Wildres.
Earthquakes.
Floods. Tornados.
Hurricanes. Blizzards. These often strike without
warning. Images of these distressing disasters
haunt us from the TV and the newspaper. Some
of them, unfortunately, we have experienced
personally. As healers we respond with compas-
sion and wish for a way to help. We know that
Healing Touch would alleviate the suffering of
those affected and support the difcult work of
the responders.
First, we should distinguish between an emergency and a
disaster. An emergency is a situation in which life or property
is threatened and the local police, re, and medical resources
are adequate to the needs. A disaster is a large-scale event
in which life and property are threatened and the scope is far
beyond what the local resources can handle. It could be days
before they are able to respond to individual citizens needs.
What you might not know is that the response to each emer-
gency or disaster in the United States is organized according
to the Incident Command System (ICS) developed over many
years by FEMA. This means that response to the house re
down the street or the town devastated by a tornado uses that
same system which can be expanded or contracted as needed.
When, Not If, Disaster Strikes
Be Prepared!

Community Connections
As healers, we have a natural ingrained desire to be of ser-
vice to reduce discomfort and enhance the quality of life of
our fellow human beings locally and globally. Many in our HT
Community and HTPA membership would like to give back
through volunteer service. Through the structure of HTPAs
Community Connections we will formulate and offer a variety
of diverse volunteer service opportunities. Examples of di-
verse opportunities are administrative assistance; HT service
to the Military and their families; Emergency and Disaster
Response (Starting locally and advancing to national and
international service).

When, Not If Disaster Strikes -
Its tempting to imagine we could show up, massage table in
hand, and be welcomed. This is not realistic. However, we can
take steps to become involved and nd ways to bring Healing
Touch into such situations. The best idea is to get involved in lo-
cal organizations that already provide emergency and disaster
response. Healing Touch will come to the aid of local communi-
ties by you, a local resident. If you become involved with organi-
zations that have a national presence, you could be deployed to
disasters anywhere in the United States if that is something that
interests you.
Preparation and involvement need to start at the
most local level. Like the ight attendant tells
you, put your own oxygen mask on rst before
you help others.
Besides being important for personal preparedness and for the
good of your own community in time of need, being involved
in organizations that offer training and volunteer opportunities
gives you, as HT practitioners, connection and legitimacy. By
becoming part of a preparation organization, taking the training,
and participating in drills, you will have the chance to introduce
Healing Touch to your fellow participants, neighbors and leaders.
A disaster response team is built from the inside out. Begin
at the local level: in your home, in your car, and in your neigh-
borhood. Expand your training and volunteer connections to
include local organizations that already have standing and
access to disaster situations. You can bring your special gift
of Healing Touch with you in all that you do. Prepare now! The
disaster you prepare for may be your own!
AT HOME
Do you have emergency supplies in your home and a plan for
your family? Can you get along for three or more days with-
out outside assistance? Here is a link to Three Days, Three
Ways to get you thinking along those lines. www.govlink.
org/3days3ways
What if a disaster occurs when you are not at home? Do you
have an emergency kit in your car or ofce that would see you
through the several days it might take for you to make your
way home?
The Red Cross offers a handy Disaster Preparedness Cal-
endar which walks you through making a family kit step-by-step
over a period of 6 months so you dont break the bank by buying
everything at once. Here is a link: www.nwnc-redcross.org/Pre-
parednessCalendar.pdf Pre-packaged home and car emergency
kits are available through many companies. Just google emer-
gency kits and you will nd a multitude of outts that sell them.
IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Next, what about your neighbors? The golden hour after an
earthquake or other disaster is the time in which small res
can be eliminated before they become conagrations. Lives
can be saved by preventing shock or managing bleeding. The
emergency responders may not be able to get to you for several
days. What can neighbors do to help each other?
In our area we have something called Map Your Neighbor-
hood which invites neighbors to come together to plan for a
disaster. See what you have in your municipality or county.
If you cant nd something similar, all the materials can be
downloaded from the State of Washington website at www.emd.
wa.gov/myn/index.shtml. You can do it yourself.
More sophisticated training and preparation are available
through Citizen Corps and Community Emergency Re-
sponse Teams (CERT). In CERT training you learn basic
search and rescue, re suppression, triage, and managing
injuries until help is available. The 8 or 9 week course is invalu-
able in preparing to help in your community in the event of a
disaster. It also provides a connection beyond your immediate
neighborhood. Follow the link for more information: www.citi-
zencorps.gov. Contact your city or county to nd out when the
CERT classes are being offered.
Dont be shy. In this time of budget cuts, emergency manage-
ment personnel are being laid off, and classes are sometimes
hard to nd. If enough people call and ask for the training, they
can often nd a grant to fund it. Keep calling.
BEYOND THE NEIGHBORHOOD
At the county and federal level, you can become involved in
the Medical Reserve Corps. www.medicalreservecorps.gov/
HomePage
copyright 2011 Healing Touch Program March 2011 | Energy Magazine 18
When, Not If Disaster Strikes -
This organization prepares for pandemics, disasters, hospital
evacuations, and such. Medical and non-medical personnel are
needed. Practice drills provide experience in setting up eld
hospitals, immunization clinics, transporting hospital patients,
etc. There are usually excellent training opportunities. The local
Medical Reserve Corps are often situated in the Public Health
department of your county.
The American Red Cross offers a multitude of training class-
es, disaster preparation supplies, and opportunities to help in
small and large disasters. www.redcross.org
Green Cross is an organization dedicated to helping people
deal with trauma and compassion fatigue. They offer training
for those who would like to deploy to disaster situations to help
both victims and responders. www.greencross.org
Anyone with a serious interest in responding to an emergency
or disaster should learn about the Incident Command System
(ICS). FEMA offers free online courses which are available to
everyone. Check them out at www.fema.gov/emergency/nims/
NIMSTrainingCourses.shtm#item1
The ICS 100b course is the most general,
but there are others that may be of interest
to you, too, particularly the one for health
care facilities. Finish the course, take the
test, and get the certicate. The certicate
will be important when you join disaster
preparation organizations.
WELL BE THERE
Once the search and rescue phase of a
disaster is over, there will be a time and
place for Healing Touch practitioners to of-
fer their special gift. Folks are hanging out
in a shelter, waiting to hear what happened
to their house. People are in a eld hos-
pital recovering from injuries. Fireghters
are taking a break before going back on
the line. Doctors and nurses are limp with
exhaustion. Just your grounded, heart-cen-
tered presence will have a profound effect,
and a few simple techniques in a quiet corner can make all the
difference to whomever you touch.

T
o mentor another is a great honor and a
huge responsibility. One of those descriptors
should not outweigh the other. It really takes both
perspectives to get the most out of mentoring
students through HTP program completion and/
or Certication.
The role of an HTP mentor brings many joys. You get to teach
what you love and know to others. Mentoring is great training
toward being an instructor of HT as it presents many opportuni-
ties to deepen your awareness of the HT program, techniques,
theories and practice. As well, it offers you opportunities to
expand your ability to talk about these areas with others. You
regularly hold the space for anothers learning through discus-
sions about the mentees growing awareness of energy and
practice, and personal development. This space we hold is
a heart-centered space, not an overly critical space. You are
nurturing your future peers in our growing HT community, which
also means you are building your own support and network
opportunities. Through your mentees you learn what other
disciplines and integrative practitioners are available in your
community, as well as what new books are available to expand
your knowledge or practice. You recognize the joy of giving back
for what you received as you went through the program and
applied for certication. If you are experienced enough you may
also get paid.
The role of an HTP mentor also comes with many responsibili-
ties. It is your job to give the best and most accurate advice to
your mentee/s. This might involve taking extra training. In fact,
if it has been awhile since you have successfully mentored
someone through certication, it most likely does. [Check out
the Mentor Training Course!] The responsibility to remain cur-
rent with the homework deliverables for HT 5 and certication
application comes just by carrying the title of mentor. Being a
mentor means being many things to a mentee; condante, sup-
porter, challenger, friend, teacher, etc. But the role also comes
with personal responsibilities, such as holding good boundaries,
engaging in regular self care, being able to see the bigger pic-
ture and generally, modeling the behavior we want to see from
HT professionals. You have the responsibility to be considerate
and timely in evaluating and returning a mentees materials. It is
your job to teach what was missed, pull forth additional knowl-
edge held deep within and to help expand the practice arena for
your mentee.
These are only some of the benets and duties of the role
of HTP mentor. You may nd or know many more. If you are
actively mentoring, I deeply thank you. You are one of our most
valued assets! If you would like to mentor and are not sure
how to get started call me, or the HTP ofce. Another Mentor
Training class starts at the end of September and it was created
specically for the new HTCP. If you are an experienced mentor
needing to be updated, please ask about an audit option and
check out the testimonials from previous classes.
HTP needs more good mentors! We are committed to helping
anyone who wants to be one get the training and support they
require. Your future mentees thank you!

P
icture this: a beautiful four-storey Victorian
home built in 1836. It is nestled on 2.2
acres of park-like setting on a quiet street in the
heart of my hometown, London, Ontario. Wel-
come to the Hospice of London.
It is Wednesday, and it is my day to provide Healing Touch with
Bereavement Support to a Hospice client. The snow and early
morning sunlight make the Hospice House seem even more
comforting and welcoming. I park my car in the back. I walk past
the garden, now covered in winter. In the spring and summer
it is lovingly tended and nurtured by volunteers, most of which
are past bereaved clients themselves. They feel a need to give
back...to help bring peace to others as it was offered to them.
I stop to ponder the stillness. It is the earths hibernation time.
Much like what my bereaved clients are experiencing now in
their journey through grief.

I enter the Hospice and Niki greets me with a big smile. She is a
one of a handful of paid employees who run the Hospice House
and its day programs. There are a host of complementary
therapists here to choose from. Clients book a treatment of their
choice, and the therapists come in as needed. We have 3 in-
house Healing Touch Practitioners, including myself. I combine
Healing Touch with Bereavement Support. They t like a glove.
It is 9:00 AM and my client will be here at 9:30. I sign in and
proceed to walk up the spiral wooden staircase that leads to the
third oor. I pass the bay window with its red, yellow and blue
stained glass shining its colors of healing into the hallway. I stop
by the kitchen to get a couple of glasses of water. I enter my
room, which is warm and has all the comforts of my own Heal-
ing Touch room at home. I light the candle and put on my Angel
Love CD. I sit for a moment and connect with guidance know-
ing that it is always with me. My client enters, and we embrace.
She has received several treatments with me over her one-year
allowance with Hospice. One year is not enough, she says. It
is not written in stone, I tell her. She looks relieved. She has
avoided another loss.
We talk for an hour - maybe a little more. We do Healing Touch.
She sleeps deeply. I gently touch her on her shoulder to sig-
nal that it is time to come back. Rest where you are, I tell her.
There is no rush here. Smiling, her eyes glowing, we talk, we
laugh, we cry, we hug. She wants to know how soon she may
come back. She leaves a changed person. She was down when
she came in this morning. She now has a smile on her face, a
skip in her step and a twinkle in her eyes as she leaves. I write
my notes and hand them into Jennifer, our day program man-
ager. I leave the Hospice the same way I came in. The sun is
shining. I have a smile on my face and a skip in my step. I think
of all the Healing Touch Practitioners reading this who also
serve the needs of their local Hospiceyou know exactly how I
feel in this moment.
Hospice is a safe place to rest. It is a philosophy of caring
much like Healing Touch. It is a place to release and tell ones
story. For some it can be life saving.

Hospice and Healing Touch
When a person is terminally ill or grieving a loss, it is the Spirit
of the person that needs to be nurtured. Nurture the Spirit and
the Heart will heal. Healing Touch is a vehicle that can help a
person to connect with the spiritual self within which is the
true healer in all of us.
Healing Touch and Hospice is truly a match made in heaven.

The Healing Touch Association of Canada is
hosting the 7th National Conference and Instruc-
tors Meeting on April 29 - 30 and May 1, 2011,
in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.
Whitehorse, the capital city, was founded during the Klondike
Gold Rush and is rich in the history of that time. There are
also 14 First Nations with 8 different languages in the territory
representing a quarter of the total population. These indigenous
peoples cultures and presence provide a distinctive contribu-
tion to our society.
The Yukon is renowned worldwide for its mountain scenery and
wildlife. April is a perfect time for viewing thousands of returning
trumpeter swans, marvelling at the Northern Lights or enjoying
a dog team ride. Take a trip to the famous Kluane National Park
or historic Dawson City. Most destinations, including Alaska, are
just hours away. (Bring your passport.) And for the adventurous,
the wilderness is just outside your back door!

Heart of the North Reaching Beyond Ourselves is the
theme for the conference. Presenters will be coming from the
Yukon, Alaska, British Columbia and as far away as Newfound-
land. We have joined with Hospice Yukon to include presenta-
tions of special interest to those involved in this eld.
Friday evening begins with the opening ceremonies and an ad-
dress by a First Nation representative. On Saturday and Sun-
day mornings, we are pleased to have two Canadian keynote
speakers: Lois Ross and Jeanette Nienaber.
Lois Ross is a registered nurse from Vancouver, BC, who works
in the eld of energy healing, spirituality and holistic health. She
has been an instructor for both Healing Touch and Therapeutic
Touch and helped to establish and teach the Integrative Energy
Healing Program at Langara College in Vancouver, B.C. Lois is
also trained in Shamanism with The Four Winds Society. Her
keynote address, Journey of the Soul Embracing Life, will
be an experiential voyage into the life connections between ego
and Soul and the maladies that affect us in our everyday life
when Soul is lost.
Jeanette Nienaber is a Healing Touch Practitioner and Instruc-
tor, Reiki Practitioner, Angel Therapist and science teacher.
One of her goals is to provide clear explanations of the science
behind energy healing to help facilitate mainstream acceptance
of energy medicine. Jeanettes presentation, Balancing Sci-
ence and Mysticism A Guidebook for the Healer, will explain
the paradigm shifts encountered as we move from the classical
Newtonian views of the universe to those of Quantum Mechan-
ics and beyond. Her address will also incorporate explanations
for energy medicine techniques and how science and mysticism
can work synergistically as we evolve towards a deeper under-
standing of whom and what we really are.

A
fter a fairly long life of studying and read-
ing about political activities that go on in
our nations capitol, Washington, DC, I
was finally able to experience the environment
and feel the energy in person. All I can say is, it
is AWE-SOME!!
Why did HTPA go to Washington to attend H.O.P.E. on the Hill?
Last June 2010, we met the founders and leaders of Voice for
H.O.P.E. (Healers of Planet Earth) when we (HTP/HTPA) were
exhibiting at the International Society for the Study of Subtle
Energies and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM) in Denver, CO. We
attended a meeting at which they explained that they had start-
ed their organization (just a few months previous) to advocate
for our citizens right to unbiased health care information and
the right to choose our own health care options. To align with
them as advocates for our HTPA members and HT Community
at large was a no-brainer.
After their meeting, we (Lisa Gordon, Cynthia Hutchison, Lin-
nie Thomas and myself) began a conversation with them that
actually lasted over an hour. We got to ask how we can make
our state, county and city policymakers understand that Heal-
ing Touch is not the same as massage (we do not manipulate
tissue or muscles) and it is not at all invasive, therefore practi-
tioners should not be required to have a license to touch and
practice. They were extremely understanding of our need to
enlighten our legislators and gave us some ideas of what we
might do to accomplish that.
Because Voice for HOPE believes that each one of us can be
a powerful influence on public policy in our own right, HTPA
has aligned with them to learn how to communicate with our lo-
cal, state and national lawmakers. That is why we went to their
recent training, HOPE on the Hill.
During the short couple of days we were together, we learned
a great deal about how not to bring an agenda to a meeting
but rather to create space for the person(s) we are meeting
with so that they are more open to a new way of thinking (about
what it is we are trying to accomplish). It was a surprise when
we were told that appointments had been set up for us to meet
with the staff of a number of Congressmen. For some of the
meetings we were assigned in a group but others we were as-
signed individually. As into as I was, I was also quite nervous
to go to Capitol Hill and meet one on one with the staff of one
of the Senators from my state of California. But, I did it and am
very grateful to have had the opportunity.

building where the office of Congessman Dennis Kucinich is

HTPA Goes to Washington DC
where one of my appointments was scheduled, I couldnt help
but be taken by the enormity of the huge historical buildings and
the air of important goings on that permeates the atmosphere.
In the not too far off distance, was the Supreme Court and the
beautiful dome of the Capitol Building. As I passed the Library
of Congress, I was wishing I had some free days to meander
around and soak all this history up more but since I didnt, I
made a vow that I would return sometime before too long.
When I reached the building I needed to go into, there was a
very long security line and it seemed like everyone was going
to similar meetings like mine (ours). I could actually feel the
energy of all the anxiety, knowing that most of us would only
have a few minutes for our meeting, yet we all were carrying
high hopes of making a huge impact during those minutes.
When I reached Kucinichs office my fellow HOPE on the HILL
members were not yet there, so I had a chance to breathe my
nerves away and center as I waited for them to arrive. When
they did, we went in to the office reception area and asked for
Vic Edgerton, the staff member we were assigned to see. From
the moment Vic came out to the reception area to the moment
we left, it was all like a wonderful dream!
First of all, Vic apologized for having to meet with us at a table
in the reception area but because during our training we were
told not to be surprised if we were kept in that area, the four
of us from Voice for HOPE, were completely comfortable with
that. Then Vic apologized for not being the person he thought
we wanted to see but when he told us that he was directly
involved with the Integrative Medicine Caucus we all looked at
each other and burst into smiles = he was BETTER than the
person who was originally going to see us as he knows exactly
what the issues are around health care freedom. When we all
gave Vic our personal cards along with the card from Voice for
HOPE, he actually spent time reading each one and we truly
felt connected and validated as he acknowledged each one of
us for our commitment to the practices we each are involved in.
As we had been trained earlier that morning, we asked several
times: what we can do to help increase support for the Integra-
tive Medicine Caucus. We explained that Voice for HOPE has
been established to be an objective and trustworthy connec-
tion for legislators to receive reliable information regarding
different healing modalities but not to advocate any one health-
care alternative or solution. Also, to help them gain support
in their specific districts by organizing constituent groups in
growing numbers to let it be known that they want their repre-
sentatives to participate in passing policies that give all citizens
more choice, control and responsibility for their own well-being
and health.
Vic gave us some good ideas of how we can help and I/we all
left that meeting (which lasted over 40 minutes!) high on HOPE!
We giggled all the way down the hall and could not wait for our
next appointment. Although each of us was off to a different
office, we knew that for the rest of the day we would be half
thinking of what just had occurred and internally smiling til wed
meet up again.
The experience described here in does not begin to adequately
tell what is happening in this movement toward health care
freedom of choice. With each of our practices (there were ap-
proximately 30 different integrative or comprehensive medicine
modalities represented at the HOPE on the Hill event) growing
along with the awareness of the publics demand for our ser-
vices, with the formation of the Voice for HOPE and their Vision,
I believe we have everything going our way and that it is just a
matter of (a short) time until we will see the nations, the states,
the countys and the citys policy makers coming forth with laws
that promote our work rather than restrict it. Theres really no
stopping this forward progress now.

It
feels so good to be validated for the work
you do, especially volunteer work! Fellow
Healing Touch Worldwide Foundation board
member, Tina Devoe, shared a relevant and
noteworthy article with the Board at our recent
annual meeting in Houston. The article, Before
You Give, in the 2010-2011 Charity Register
issue of Sarasota Magazine, is so pertinent to
our cause that it struck a heartstring with all of
us. The authors could have been talking about
our Foundation, which is in its fourteenth year
of spreading the light of Healing Touch through
research and outreach.
The authors, Ruth Lando and Susie Bowie, outline ten questions
to ask when opening your heart and walletto the right cause.
1. Are you passionate about the mission?
Janet Mentgen, founded the Healing Touch Worldwide Founda-
tion (HTWF) in 1997 after one of her patients received such
healing she was moved to donate a large sum of money. Janet
knew that research would validate the work especially with
the skeptical medical community. Healing Touch practitioners
around the world continue to support this mission: To receive
and distribute funds to assist, encourage and advance the
philosophy, objectives and techniques of Healing Touch.
2. Does the Organization have 501(c)(3) status
with the IRS? This is stated at the outset on the home page
of the Foundations website www.HTWFoundation.org. This
designation with the IRS lets the donor know that the founda-
tion answers to the public, provides tax incentives to donors,
and has a non-prot and charitable purpose.
3. Has turnover been excessive over the last few
years? The HTWF began with a small board and recently
was expanded with the goal that many hands can create many
fold. Bonnie Kelly Morrow has been guiding the Board for more
than seven years as chair with the able support of her husband,
Norm Morrow, now our current treasurer. Bios and current
terms of ofce are on the website under About Us. Were al-
ways looking for committee members. It is fun to be involved in
a great cause.
4. Does the organization make nancial informa-
tion readily available online or by request? The
Foundations nancial statement has always been available by
request. Look for the annual report in next months Energy Mag-
azine. Transparency is a critical consideration when choosing a
philanthropic cause.
5. Are there similar organizations in the com-
munity and if so, how is this nonprot different?
Of course there are many charities and non-prots but few
advancing the work of energy healing and integrative medicine.
Healing Touch is the leader in energy medicine. Janet Ment-
gen, founder of HT, pioneered this work with the goal that it
be professional. HTWF advances this professionalism through
research in the new science of subtle energy healing.

The Right Cause

HTWF: The Right Cause
6. What has the organization achieved over
the last year, and what are its long-term goals?
HTWF is the benchmark for excellence in funding Healing
Touch research and outreach programs, spreading Healing
Touch to communities throughout the world. This is the vision.
All HT and other energy medicine practitioners have a stake
in the advancement and acceptance of this potent and effec-
tive healing modality. This will occur when Healing Touch is a
household phrase and evidence of its effectiveness is published
in prestigious, peer-reviewed journals. The Foundation raises
and distributes funds to help advance these achievements.
HTWF set up a strategic plan for the longevity of the Founda-
tion. Fundraising exceeded the intended goal set for the annual
auction. The Janet Mentgen Fund provided instructor training in
Colorado for two HT practitioners, one from Australia and one
from Nepal.
7. Will my contribution make a difference? Of
course. There is very little overhead expense with this founda-
tion as there is a volunteer Board and minimal administrative
costs. Donors may make specic designations for animals, the
Janet Mentgen Fund, or possibly tribute to a mentor or instruc-
tor. The Foundations progress is reported at the annual HTP
conference, periodically on the website, and monthly through
HTP community news and Energy Magazine online.
8. May I see your Donors Bill or Rights? This is a
wonderful document developed by the following organizations:
Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Association of
Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), Council for Advancement and
Support of Education (CASE), and Giving Institute: Leading
Consultants to Non-Prots. AFP has given HTWF permission to
post this document on our website. (Click here to read it.)
9. Is there 100 percent participation from the
board in giving? The HTWF Board is passionate about
our cause. Otherwise, we wouldnt be leading this movement.
Some tithe to HTWF because it benets and feeds them spiritu-
ally. In 2010, the organization began a commemorative gift for
donation program. A special charm is the Foundations gift for
a $50 or more cash donation. (Click here to donate.) Everyone
on the Board has one or two of these limited edition pieces plus
gives signicant donations to the perennial aLive and silent
auctions at the HTP conferences.
10. Is there a commitment to Professional devel-
opment of staff and board? HTWF board members
have many years of experience working or volunteering in the
non-prot organization eld. Be assured that we keep abreast
of trends and best practices for our HTWF work to be strong,
stable, and successful.
It is healthy to have a personal relationship with the non-prot
organization for which you open your heart and wallet. Reiterat-
ing the major concepts in the Sarasota Magazine article, This
alliance is based on the values of trust, transparency and open
exchange, and form the bedrock of an important relationship.
Lets all change the face of health care together and advance
the work we all do. Please be involved with this Right Cause.

Before I tell you how Healing Touch changed my
life, you should know a little about me. Im 63 and
an RN who seems to be great at beating up her
body. Four years ago, I learned a tough lesson. I
woke up with complete paralysis of the right side
of my face - the dreaded Bells palsy had struck.
Of course, I thought it was a stroke. After two
months, my face still drooped, and much of what
I said could not be understood. I had no tears. I
had no feeling in my right cheek. When I talked
to my neurologist, my physician and my ENT, I
was told not to expect any more major improve-
ment. What I had was it. The EMG showed no
nerve conduction at all. The only advice they had
to offer reduce my stress!
The end result we moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. I stayed
in nursing, but my whole lifestyle became less stressful and
more satisfying. I managed to regain most of my speech, de-
veloped less droop and even got my tears back. (So much for
doctors!) I still had a slight dizziness, and my right cheek was
still numb. I was always biting it and couldnt chew or swallow
on that side.
Now we fast forward to last October (2010). As I set out for the
Healing Touch Level 4 Baja Cruise, I had no idea what to expect.
I was just excited to be attending Level 4 and going on a cruise!
It didnt start out well. I forgot about my permanent dizziness. I
was so used to allowing for it that I didnt think about being on
a ship. I spent the entire night being seasick. With the help of a
patch, I got over my seasickness and the HT work continued.
We came to the last full day of class, and my partner, Jen, was
going to give me a treatment. We planned for her to work on my
bad knee and shoulder. Jen decided to try the Etheric Vitality
Meditation, focusing mainly on my right knee and right shoulder.
It didnt work out quite as planned. I was lying on the table when I
started hearing crackling in the right side of my head. Along with
this cacophony of crackling came mini bolts of lightning. After a
short period of time, the internal noise was driving me crazy. I
had to sit up. Poor Jen was trying to close the session, and I was
climbing out of her reach. Looking back, Im sure it was funny to
anyone watching. Somehow, she managed to nish, but it wasnt
with my help! I was trying to silence the ruckus in my head.
As I sat there trying to explain my actions to Jen, I realized that
a change had happened, and it wasnt to either my shoulder or
my knee. It was my face! The numbness was gone. I kept pok-
ing my cheek in disbelief! After four years, I could actually feel
my cheek!
Looking back on this event, I realize that this was a perfect
demonstration of energys own destiny. Weve all been told to
remember that any work we do is for the clients own good.
No matter what our intentions are, energy will ow where it is
needed the most. Interesting concept, isnt it? We might try to
Freedom
to Travel
by Cheryl Massena, RN, Level 4 HT student
continued on page 29
copyright 2011 Healing Touch Program March 2011 | Energy Magazine 29
Freedom to Travel
direct it, and, most of the time, that is where it will go. BUT there
are exceptions. Energy plays by its own rules, and on that day it
decided to do some cheek work. Neither Jen nor I had any real
choice in the matter.
Dont misunderstand me. The results still awe me - the impres-
sion made has been imprinted on my soul. I bless my Higher
Power with every bite of food and every sip of water that no
longer leads to coughing.
What has changed is my understanding of Energy. At times dur-
ing a session, I can ask it to go to an arm or a leg. But that is all
I can do! Energy raised will go where it will. It has the freedom
to travel, and it does. So now I know to be ready for anything.
The Energy Journey has begun with a simple Baja Cruise!
Now Im in for the ride of my life!
Thank you, Jen, as I bite my cheek again and feel the pain!
