Course Descriptions

 

Advanced Concept in Pranic Healing

Advanced Pranic Healing® is a specialized workshop for those who wish to become more effective healers.

In Advanced Pranic Healing®, you will learn how to utilize color prana for quicker, more effective healing results. Colored prana creates a more focused effect on the energy field and the chakras.

Advanced color healing: Students will learn to use the right proportion, color combinations and degree of hue of colored prana.

  • Advanced scanning:Students will learn to interpret and assess more quickly and effectively the correction of imbalances in the energy field patterns.
  • Powerful specialized healing techniques:Students will study the Rapid Healing of Wounds, Cellular Regeneration, Cleansing of the Internal Organs, Cleansing of the Blood and other techniques to boost the immune system.
  • High-level energetic methods of enhancing the body’s innate healing ability:Students will learn techniques for working on AIDS, cancer, stroke, diabetes, kundalini syndrome (a state in which the aura is over-energized due to meditation or other excessive energy-development practices) and other severe ailments.
  • Instructive healing:Students will learn to help accelerate healing and recovery by influencing and reprogramming the consciousness of diseased cells and organs.

 

 

Introduction to Consciousness Studies (BIS students)

The course draws upon investigations and models concerning the nature, types, and levels of consciousness, drawn from various religious traditions, yoga, mysticism, spirituality, shamanism, Jungian psychology, and parapsychology. It also explores the nature of transcendent consciousness, or super consciousness from spiritual traditions, as well as the practices used in the various traditions to attain these states.

This class will be collaborative. Instead of uniform midterm and final exams, and weekly papers on your readings, each student will make two presentations to classmates during the quarter. The presentations can be via Forum posts, in person presentations during on-campus classes (or via Skype), short papers, or uploads of audio or video recordings. Not to worry if you do not feel comfortable presenting, or are technologically challenged – papers are fine.

 

Substance Abuse: Assessment, Intervention, and Treatment *Clinical Psychology Licensure Requirement

The course examines the extent and patterns of use and abuse of illegal, social and medical psychoactive substances and the psychosocial factors and policies that contribute to the etiology of addiction in modern Western societies. Types of therapy and rehabilitation programs and their short and long-term efficacy will be discussed, along with implications for developing effective social policies. Sociocultural aspects to chemical dependency will be addressed.

 

Ethics and Law in Psychology

Ethical and legal issues in behavioral research with human subjects, counseling and psychotherapy, and psychological testing will be discussed. Issues pertaining to provision of clinical services are covered. Legal aspects of professional competence, behavior, licensing, confidentiality, informed consent, recruitment of subjects for research and advertising of services will be reviewed. (4 units)

 

Pranic Healing

This course provides both theory and practice, preparing students to confidently interact with the subtle energy of the auric field to promote mental and physical health and well-being. Upon completing the course, along with a practicum, the student may take the credentialing exam for certification in this healing modality.

Course Texts/Material and Certification fee of $335 is required. This course is entirely on campus for the full duration of times listed * Fulfills Spiritual Education Requirement

 

Psychoacoustics :Theory and Practical Application

In this experientially based course, students personally experience the powerful healing effects of sound and vibration on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.  Students will study and explore the vibratory ‘sound bath’ effects on the energy body and chakras using ancient and newly-discovered therapeutic musical instruments.  Instruments utilized include Tibetan singing bowls, quartz crystal bowls, Tingshas, the didgeridoo, gongs, and bells.  Additionally, the profound healing that occurs with toning and chanting will be explored and deeply experienced.  Students will discover their own personal ‘Life Song,’ a unique mantra-like string of vowel sounds that resonates with his or her essence.  Musical principles of entrainment, resonance, toning, harmonics, and binaural beats begin to assist us in understanding the restorative healing vibrations and how to apply them to ourselves and/or our healing practices.  (4 units)

 

Topic of Special Interest: Conscious Living and Dying Practicum I

The course is designed to provide a training in helping people make their final transitions that is based on energy psychology, psycho-spiritual counseling and the mystical tradition within world religions.  The core teaching of the Living and Dying Consciously Program is that we can come to the end of a life with grace. The insight and practices woven into the Great Death Rites practiced by the great wisdom traditions allow us to understand the kind of psychological and energetic closure needed.  They provide specific steps to bring reconciliation and healing both to the loved ones and to the person dying.  This course is a training in being present, supporting the dying person in a way that is simple and yet thorough. (2 units.) Optionally this may be combined with the Consciousness & Healing Practicum, for which this is a co-requisite. (4 units)

 

Topic of Special Interest: Conscious and Healing Practicum II

The Energy Healing Practicum curriculum is unique, for it offers active mentoring and de-briefing up to once per week, before or after students’ shifts in the Community Healing Circle. The amount of mentoring time that a student receives varies, and depends on each individual’s needs as a student and as a practitioner. Our approach to the  energy healing curriculum is “hands on” and “learn as you go” model, with our expectation being that every student learns much about themselves and the practice of energy healing in the process of serving the community.

After 20 hours of service in offering energy healing in the community healing circle setting,  online reading and written assignments, (including case studies) a volunteer is again evaluated by the Practicum Coordinator based on one’s skill set.

At the close of the practicum, students are more than welcome to carry on volunteering with the Community Healing Circle regardless of their interest in receiving further training.

We completely respect and understand that every teacher and school of the healing arts offers unique wisdom to impart to each student. We honor every volunteer’s path, and we honor all lineages of healing. Our energy healing practicum is available as a way to receive structured training in caregiving, and promote students’ professional development as healers.

 

Topic of Special Interest: Teachings on Non-Dual Awareness

This course explores nondual teachings and nondual awareness. It includes explorations of nondual awareness from philosophical, spiritual, ontological, and phenomenological perspectives, and in contemporary neurological and health research. The course includes self-reflection, self-inquiry, and the deepening of awareness through academic inquiry and investigation.

 

Advanced Integrative Therapy

Advanced Integrative Therapy (Basics) is a three-day experiential seminar that introduces, explains, and trains participants in the foundations of AIT theory and methodology.  Students will learn the theories of trauma, and how to access unconscious material through ideo-motor cuing (muscle testing), and how to move energy through the body’s major energy centers (chakras) to eliminate trauma, its symptoms, cause and after-effects. This course is entirely on campus for the three-day weekend listed.
