Training Modules for Certified Spiritual Healers, Spiritual Coaches and Pneumatherapists

Please note, the overview of modules is just that. It is a brief and incomplete outline for the 8 week curricilum. The outlines do not reflect outcomes and daily work done in clinics, labs and hands-on instruction, and of course do not spell out the full curricilum. 

Copy-cats of our concept in teaching is rather normal, and we encourage it, but by golly, they can at least go beyond just copy-pasting our content to their sites–let them also develop their own curricila. Please be careful out there.  

 Two optional electives available:
