What we're about
Let's practice our healing skills. And learn something new.
This is a group for anyone interested in practicing and also in learning new skills. A good teacher is always learning. It is said, "The teacher can never be greater than the student, and the student cannot be greater than the teacher." So healing of the body, soul and spirit begins with the honest intent to help or heal another.
All skill levels are welcome. I started this group to practice and teach Therapeutic Touch healing, but at a more advanced level of skill, one's own method evolves. I've taught housewives, social workers, nurses, physical therapists, engineers, naturopaths, psychologists and neurologists how to heal memory loss. But even a child quickly learned how to heal tummy aches – because children are often the most open to learning. No one has told them yet, mistakenly, that healing is not possible!
I began learning how to heal in 1973, when about 40 people a day would knock on our front door to ask for healing from my husband, after a full-page article was written about him as a healer in the Arizona Republic newspaper. As for me, Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., R.N., kindly invited me to represent her in Tucson over the years. She is famous for having developed Therapeutic Touch healing, which she taught to graduate nursing students at New York University. Then it become internationally known and practiced by health care professionals in hospitals and colleges everywhere. More medical research has been done on Therapeutic Touch than any other healing modality.
But let's keep it fun and simple for now. Healing is a positive, life-affirming practice. It is the intent to help or heal that makes a difference. Let's enjoy our cooler, late mornings as we share, practice and learn healing at the Oro Valley public library. The east porch has a spectacular view of the Catalina mountains. Bring your ideas and questions. It will be a pleasure meeting other healers, and also you wonderful, caring people who'd like to learn.
See you soon!
