DYNAMIC ENERGETIC HEALING® is an integrative psychospiritual healing model that takes place within the psychotherapy context. I have been a psychotherapist in private practice since 1981, the same year that I started my shamanic training. I have completed the Foundation for Shamanic Studies' three-year program and train therapists how to move in and out of dreamtime within the psychotherapy context. Dynamic Energetic Healing is an innovative synthesis that integrates core shamanic practices with energy psychology applications and Mindell's processwork principles. Manual muscle testing is used throughout the work to facilitate and keep the client's process moving. In order to become a facilitator, trainees must commit to participate in five 3-day trainings, each of which are progressive and build upon the previous ones. All include supervised practice with the last additional 2-day weekend training completely devoted to supervised practice. This is a powerful methodology for integrating shamanic practices into the psychotherapy context. For more in-depth descriptions of what is involved, you may click my web site links that connect you with the specific training outlines as well as my book that details the theory, step-by-step methodology and illustrative case histories. Because this is an energy based psychotherapy and healing model, changes occur rapidly and dramatically. Most significantly though, it is through the intercession of the compassionate spirits and the power they infuse that distinguishes this model from other energy based healing and therapy models.

THE THREE SOULS SHAMANIC PRACTITIONER APPRENTICESHIP
Shamans see in the dark places - into the dark they usher the light. It is through their flames of passion that they illuminate the path for others. To be a bright and fierce fire, Shamans set their souls and hearts aflame; this is their willing sacrifice. The three souls training is a journey to discover the fuel of sacrifice, experience the flame of that fire and surrender to that fire in the service of others and the waiting Universal Divine. Training addresses three levels of work and each conducted over one year.
