Course Descriptions

The Chakra System (0.5 credit, lower division level)
This course provides an introduction and overview of the Chakra system, the physical connection of each Chakra to parts of the body, and its physical, emotional and spiritual components. Students learn to match each human anatomical structure to its Chakra and examine ailments as they apply to each specific Chakra. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, case studies, and hands-on demonstrations.

Clinical Internship (0.5 credit, lower division level)
During this internship students spend 82 contact hours with patients in an approved internship site under supervision. Students also participate in a minimum of six case conferences (6 hours total), and present a different patient/case each time. Feedback is provided by both peers and the internship coordinator. Instruction is via observation, discussion, case studies, and supervised experience.

Core Energetics (3 credits, lower division level)
This course provides experiential Core Energetics exercises to increase self awareness and to deepen understanding of the process of spiritual growth, and of students' own mask and defenses. Exercises support and enhance group process work as well as discussion of the etiology and physical, emotional, and mental aspects of defenses. The course provides increased focus on recognizing the physicality of defenses, and experiential work on overcoming defenses in relationships, enabling students to be less defended and to come from their core. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, case studies, and hands-on demonstrations.

Group Process (1 credit, lower division level)
This intensive workshop is designed to highlight defensive structure and support students in learning new responses to old patterns. It also strengthens existing assessment techniques. The workshop focuses on the development of intimacy potential within each student, enabling them to interact more honestly and effectively with others. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, and small group interaction.

Healing Techniques (2 credits, lower division level)
This course presents healing techniques and opportunities for students to apply their learning in a supervised environment. Students develop sensitivity to energy in others' bodies, and the ability to balance their energy through sensing and intention. Techniques include Energy Balancing, Chakra Reconstruction and Pre and Post Surgery healings. Students learn to complete all technical steps for healing through correct body position, stance, hand placement, intention, and energetic tools. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, case studies, and hands-on demonstrations.

Principles of Healing (1 credit, lower division level)
This course provides novice healers with information, techniques, and tools for self-support and protection as well as furnishing an understanding of precautions for working with certain client conditions. Students learn to work with pendulums, grasp the healer's awareness of disease, and recognize the use of lower self power in healing. Overuse of the will in healing, advanced grounding techniques, and the issue of sexuality in healership are presented and discussed. Students learn how to recognize and understand their own defense structures, and gain an awareness of the issue of codependency in their Healership/Internship. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, case studies, and hands-on demonstrations.

Survey of Anatomy (1 credit, lower division level)
This course provides an overview of basic human anatomy and an introduction to physiology covering the nine body systems. Students review the location of each organ system and a description of the function of each organ, with information regarding the psychological, emotional, and spiritual components as they relate to each organ. Instruction correlates the Chakra organ system, parts of the body, psychological/emotional disease, and symptoms of problems. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, case studies, and hands-on demonstration.

Treatment Planning and Practice (4 credits, lower division level)
This course supports students' spiritual growth and development through a variety of techniques such as meditation and small group interaction. Students explore High Sense Perception and its ethical implications, development of treatment plans, and medical communication as they acquire the professional skills required to work as part of a medical team supporting clients undergoing allopathic medical treatment. Course topics include an overview of the internship program and factors influencing students' choice of site. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, cases studies, and hands-on demonstration.

The W.I.S.E. Method (3 credits, lower division level)
This course enables the students to identify and understand the three levels of existence within the human energetic anatomy, and the etiology of the behavioral, psychological, and physical components of each character structure; to be able to define Spirituality and clarify the differences between Spirituality and Religion; to develop knowledge of the planes of existence that correlate to the chakra system with a focus on the astral plane, and to recognize past life influences on present psycho/physical issues. Students develop understanding of the psycho/physical causality of physical disorder; understand the W.I.S.E. Method, and demonstrate it using clients with a variety of illnesses. Instruction is via lecture, discussion, case studies, and hands-on demonstrations.
