General Holistic Course Summaries

Holistic Health

Holistic Health provides an overview of the various aspects of Holistic Health, emphasizing the integration of Body, Mind, and Spirit. The importance of using this integrated approach for holistic assessments and in the healing process is discussed. Several holistic healing techniques are presented. Health care practitioners and interested lay persons are invited to attend.

Advanced Holistic Health

Advanced Holistic Health builds on knowledge gained in the Holistic Health course. The definition of Holistic Health is reviewed and current trends in Holistic Health are discussed. These include the study of the interaction of the mind and the immune system, holistic approaches to preventing and reversing hearth disease, personal characteristics of people who successfully heal themselves, and healing the spirit. Additional journaling, imagery, and energy based techniques are presented.

Meditation and Imagery for Stress Management and Healing

This course discusses the stages of relaxation which correlate to different levels of conciousness, and helps participants use various techniques to access these different states. Techniques include breathing, imagery, meditation postures, yoga nidra (savasana), mindfulness, and others. Participants learn to apply these methods to self healing or helping patients, relaxation, setting and achieving goals, breaking free from addictions, thinking more clearly, and managing many types of stress.

Intuition and Healing

Intuition and Healing focuses on identifying distraction and clearing away blocks to the natural intuitive process in order to make life decisions with greater clarity, access inner healing abilities, perceive the flow of energy in the body, or to help others. The class is developed on themes taken from Women Who Run With the Wolves by Estes, Celestine Prophecy by Redfield, Anatomy of the Spirit by Myss, and Light Emerging by Brennan.

Journaling for Healing and Growth

This course presents the use of journaling as a tool in the healing process for oneself or one's clients/patients. Potential benefits are highlighted for pain, illness, trauma, weight loss, stress management, self awareness, accessing inner wisdom, developing creativity, and setting and achieving goals. Participants have the opportunity to practice several techniques.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

EFT is a method of tapping acupressure meridians, helping to re-balance the energy system which has become unbalanced through the effects of trauma and emotional upset. Participants learn to do the technique on themselves, applying it to anxiety, fears, phobias, self esteem issues, addictions, compulsive over-eating, and physical problems. EFT works to clear disruptions in the energy system and restore functioning. EFT is a good technique to use when other approaches have not been successful.

Holistic Weight Loss

This class is structured to provide support and skills for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects will be discussed. Participants will learn to identify choices related to physical health that can contribute to losing weight; practice the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT); identify thought patterns that affect weight; explore the impact of emotional issues on weight loss or weight gain; and address spiritual aspects of weight management.

Reconnection Healing Energy

The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself by Eric Peral describes this method as accessing a new energy coming in to the human race at this time because we need it and are ready for it. References are made in the book to the gridwork and reconnecting to the universe. The work is done by simply putting your hands in the person's field and noticing the interaction of your energy field with theirs. Then allow yourself to move your hands to follow the energy. The key is to stay alert and aware with the energy.

Intro to Co-counseling

Co-counseling skills offer quality listening to help release emotional pain, set goals, or clarify issues. These valuable skills can be applied in work with clients, relationships, families, or to oneself.


As described above for Intro to Co-Counseling, with additional theory, demonstrations, and practice leading to developing skills for using Co-counseling outside the classroom setting.

Co-Counseling Listening Project

Co-Counseling is a supportive method of assisting individuals to release the negative effects that hurtful experiences have had on our thinking and behavior. The result is being freed from rigid, self-limiting thoughts and behaviors so that our attitudes, actions and interactions begin to reflect our most accurate thinking. The listening skills are practiced in groups and pairs and can be applied to assist oneself, friends, family, co-workers, clients, and to impact positive social interactions in all areas of our lives.


Dreamwork is an opportunity to explore the symbolism in dreams as well as develop skills for remembering, recording, and analyzing your dreams. Learn a technique for understanding dreams through seven levels of consciousness.

Axiatonal Therapy

Axiatonal Therapy energizes a gridwork that connects the recipient of the treatment to the frequencies of the universe. Some of the lines energetically traced on the body have the frequencies of specific stars and related attributes, e.g., Polaris (directionality, staying on course), Orion's Belt (courage), Arcturus (connecting to your own truth). The Axiatonal system is discussed in the book The Keys of Enoch by Hurtak. This work is related to medical astronomy and sacred geometry. The axial lines are part of a fifth dimensional circulatory system. The book describes the possibility of being able to regenerate tissues and organs when this system is fully energized and may function in recalibration of our DNA.

Medical Assistance Program (MAP)

This simple meditative process of co-creation accesses specific spiritual guides to assist in our own healing process. Flower essences can be used to shift energy.

Microbial Balancing Program (MBP)

Work with spiritual guides and devas to balance the microbes within and around the body. Cleansing, clearing, and balancing on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels are included. Creating balance is a more harmonious approach than the usual war that is waged against microorganisms.
