The Energy Touch® School of Advanced Healing's early home was in the Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Since its inception the School has steadily grown and expanded its influence in the Energy Medicine community and is now located in its own facility, the Energy Touch® Center, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Energy Touch® Center also serves as a hub for local Energy Touch® Practitioners as well as serving as a venue for like-minded events and workshops.
The Three-Year Program
The Energy Touch® School of Advanced Healing is a three-year program designed for adults, using both classroom and home study to complete their training. Five times per school year, students travel to Grand Rapids, Michigan for hands-on instruction and lectures with Tricia and her staff. Small class size is maintained to insure direct contact with each student. Classes are scheduled in 4-day increments, allowing students to continue to maintain current jobs and/or develop their practices while discovering new skills for use with their clients. On Wednesdays during each class week, community clients are invited into the classroom for sessions with the students. Community client sessions help the students build their confidence in the work, their Guidance and their ability to communicate their findings with their clients. Homework assignments between each class week allow students to integrate these new skills into their practice and report immediate results. Students are also encouraged to explore their own unique talents and share their experiences, joys and concerns in a safe environment of compassion and respect.
During the course of the school, personal therapy sessions are required with an intention towards clearing the energies, belief systems and cellular memories that no longer serve the student. Because the heart is the gateway for this work, deep issues and beliefs held energetically in the heart—both conscious and unconscious—come forward to be released in a safe compassionate environment. Just as we help our clients remove unnecessary energies and beliefs, so do we need to clear our own fields to allow for the growth and multi-dimensional expansion that will bring us to our full potential as an EnergyTouch® Practitioner. These sessions are done outside the classroom to allow the student to process emotional issues in private. We can only take our clients as far as we ourselves are willing to go.
