Syllabus

Energy is everything. Everything in the universe is in motion, even a rock at an atomic and subatomic level. Science is increasingly showing that human beings are comprised of an energy system that is highly integrated with the physical body, emotions, and the spiritual aspect of individuals. Energy healing is a practice that recognizes that energy is a vital, living, moving force, which is instrumental in determining health and well-being. The primary function of energy healing is to change the frequency of the body's energetic fields, channels, and centers to improve health and enhance healing.

In an age where people increasingly turn to holistic methods of healing, music therapy and sound healing have entered mainstream health care and can be used successfully with people of all ages and disabilities.

Meditation is a mind-body practice with many methods and variations that are all grounded in the silence and stillness of present-moment awareness. The regular practice of meditation not only calms and helps focus the mind, it is also an effective practice for increased energy. Evidence of meditation's health effects has been well documented. The practice offers improvement in the symptoms of various disease conditions, and the experience of a deeper spiritual connection.

The concept that energy systems are part of the human interactive environment and a powerful part of therapeutic healing techniques has been part of many cultures for centuries. Energy medicine therapies use gentle techniques thought to help balance a person's energy field and accelerate healing of the body, mind and spirit. Therapeutic Touch®, Healing Touch, reiki, reflexology, and craniosacral therapy are common methods explored in this course.

Qigong is an integrated mind-body-spirit energy healing discipline that has been practiced in China for thousands of years. Qigong is more than exercise. It is a holistic system of self-healing with a focus on posture and movement, breathing techniques, and meditation. Increased range of motion, increased stamina, increased strength, improved balance, and coordination are enhanced by the practice of qigong.

The ancient Chinese healing practice of acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat many ailments, especially pain. Today, this therapy that addresses disharmony in the body, mind, and spirit is widely practiced throughout China and is used by millions of individuals in the United States and many other countries. This course explores the history of acupuncture, the theories involved in its practice (including yin and yang, qi, the meridian system, and causes of disharmony), the types and benefits of acupuncture, as well as possible complications and contraindications of the therapy and training issues.

Reviews

Just wanted to give a HUGE thank you for this class. I have taken all of your classes and have not been disappointed in any of them. I have learned so much about alternative ways of healing; which has lead me to exploring other options of healing through books and online materials. I hope there are more of these classes in the future, for new ways of looking at the body and healing.
