This self-guided course is to assist bodyworkers, therapists/counselors, holistic health providers, energy workers and others who are looking to understand their clients or patients who are going through the spiritual awakening process.
It is also suitable for friends, family, and loved ones who are looking for an understanding of spiritual awakening, as well as is for those interested in spiritual awakening for their own purposes.

Who is this course for?
This course is primarily aimed at clinicians of many different types (bodyworkers, energy workers, therapists, acupuncturists, holistic health practitioners and others who interface with client or patient populations) and is focused on important considerations and understandings from this vantage point. A focus on differential diagnosis (seeing our clients and their issues clearly), in-depth knowledge regarding spiritual awakening to support this population, and how and where individuals tend to get stuck or require support is included.
However, this course may also be of interest to individuals experiencing spiritual awakening who want a slightly different perspective on difficulties they may be experiencing, for others who have an interest in exploring spiritual awakening, as well as for friends, family, and others who may be interested in supporting their loved one during spiritual awakening.
Who are you and why are you teaching this course?
Spiritual awakening and consciousness studies were a passion of mine for many years. I have several books out regarding spiritual awakening, including The Spiritual Awakening Guide, Working with Kundalini, and The Body Deva. None of these books are required for the course, by the way, but they are helpful supplemental materials!
I have been a clinician of varying types since 2003 (Chinese Medicine, CranioSacral Therapy, Spiritual healing, energy work, bodywork) and found that undergoing my own spiritual awakening process that I began to draw more and more clients to me who sought help for theirs. I have worked with hundreds of clients undergoing spiritual awakening, and have supported thousands of students, readers, and others through my work over the years. My path has very much been about offering information in a clear, pragmatic way that offers in-depth insight into spiritual matters.
What level is this course?
I offer a lot of information in this course, but it is suitable for the motivated beginner to the adept (experienced individuals in this area of study). If you are more in the “motivated beginner” category there may be a few concepts that may be currently beyond you– but still may be helpful to hear about. Plus, there is plenty in this course that will be of service to you… and hearing about advanced considerations and topics is always a mind-expanding thing!
Are there CEU’s for the course?
There are no CEU’s for this course (continuing education credits)
Is there certification, a diploma, or pieces of paper given to me for taking this course?
This is a $40 self-guided course that has no certification, diploma, or pieces of paper. It would be a much more expensive course if I offered pieces of paper for it, and with self-guided courses I have little way to assure competency and/or if you have completed the course. You are welcome to say that you have taken the course if you complete it, however.
Can I take this course for a reduced rate or free?
This course is priced as is, and I do not offer reduced rates or courses
Why are you offering self-guided courses?
Offering self-guided courses allows for individuals who may be interested in my courses but wish for a slower pace to absorb the information, or who may want high quality teachings on energetic and spiritual subjects but cannot afford higher price points to have access to the information.
I hope to offer varying self-guided courses in the future to fulfill the need for people hoping to gain in-depth energetic and spiritual tools and knowledge for themselves and their communities
If I sign up for the course, can I ask questions or seek guidance from you about spiritual matters (spiritual awakening, kundalini, meditation, etc)?
This course is a self-guided course. To be able to offer the ability to answer questions or offer guidance would mean that I would need to charge a much higher price point for my courses.
