Spiritual healing is the transmission of Universal energy, whatever we conceive that to be. The healer can facilitate a return to wholeness through the directed transmission of this healing energy which in turn may stimulate the innate self-healing ability of the recipient.

Energy Healing is where an understanding of the chakras and the aura is introduced into the healing process to enable the healer to focus on the physical body, emotions, mind and spirit.

The Healer believes that the body itself is part of an energy system which, if it gets out of balance in any way, or suffers trauma, can eventually lead to dis-ease. Healing can help bring about a return to balance and harmony.

The College of Healing courses provide training at all levels and are suitable for people who have only a basic knowledge, through to those who wish to build on their experience of Spiritual and Energy Healing.

The courses can be taken by people for many different reasons, including:

– To become a professional Healer;

– To offer Healing to family and friends;

– For self-development and personal growth.
