Opening and Deepening Your Spiritual Connection
The purpose of the school is to provide experiential training in an environment that is conducive to opening and learning on the inner planes. This school offers each student an intuitive nonlinear approach to her/his unique unfolding spiritual journey and spiritual gifts.
“Our inner nature is whole on every level. Yet we lose our connection to it. Situations and events shatter us in spite of our best efforts to remain whole. These shatterings are the source of our suffering. We long to reclaim our experience of being whole.
The experience of wholeness is one of inner peace, connection and creative expression. The journey into wholeness is a journey of inner healing. Through it we become free to be ourselves fully, no longer ruled by fear and shame. And though pain may continue to be part of our experience, we no longer resist it. We accept it as part of the wholeness in which we live.” Michael Young, 2004
To evolve into the world of wholeness we must journey inwardly for self-discovery and inner healing. The mission of the Circle of the Heart School of Wholeness is to provide an environment and community in which we can retrieve our lost parts and integrate them into greater levels of wholeness.
What is the Circle of the Heart School of Wholeness?
The Circle of the Heart School of Wholeness is a three-year training designed to assist participants to become fully embodied human beings capable of creating meaningful lives free of self-limiting beliefs and fears.
Why might I want to attend such a three-year training?
There resides within each of us the echo of our wholeness. Our inner reality is intrinsically whole in potential. Over the course of our lives we experience traumas which shatter us. The shards of these shatterings are lost for longs periods of time.
They remain in us as inactive unmanifest potentials. The purpose of the Circle of the Heart School’s program is to retrieve and reactivate these potentials and bring us into ever greater circles of wholeness. The more whole we become, the more functional and empowered we are and the fuller our life experience becomes.
What do I ultimately come away with as a graduate of this School?
Graduates begin to fine tune their inner reality to consciously create personal, professional and social lives which reflect their unique individuated selves and needs. Some students become healing facilitators assisting others to become whole; others find their life purpose is in some other field of endeavor which fulfills their soul’s desire to be here.
How often does the Circle of the Heart School of Wholeness meet?
The COHSW meets five times per year every other month for three and a half days beginning on Thursdays and ending mid-day on Sundays. The school starts in the spring and ends in the fall; winter is reserved for rest and self-reflection.
What is taught in the curriculum of the COHSW?
Over the course of the three-year training, the students are taught healing techniques to address the conditions pertinent to each of the seven inner layers of the aura. The experience of the school teaches the students how to perceive and manage their own energy field or aura. They are taught how to ground their personal auras; how to open them and fill them with life force energy (chi); and how to regulate that chi to enhance their own well-being and assist others through the modality of hands-on healing. The students are given the experience of how the have developmentally, as children, created energetic defenses to protect themselves from their psychological pain and how these defenses become self-defeating and limiting as adults.
Knowing and experiencing these “character structures” provides a roadmap for the students’ personal healing journey through the school. The COHSW teaches several forms of meditation for self-healing, an ancient chi kung form and a meditation to open the psychic channels of the students. This channel becomes the threshold for spiritual guidance from within. The school teaches core shamanic techniques for personal clarity, power and healing and the theoretical foundation for the ancient tradition of the Kabbalah. A self healing meditation and one healing method from this tradition are also taught.
How do I pay my school tuition?
Some students pay their tuition in full when they register. Most pay with a down payment at registration and the remainder divided over the course of the five classes. The COHSW requires a written financial commitment to pay the full tuition for each year. The school is only interested in those who know that they are committed to attending the full program.
