ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT EHI’S PRACTITIONER PROGRAMS
What are the dates for the EHI Practitioner Programs?
Evolving the Astral Body: The heart of the why (Level 1) and Evolving the Etheric Body: Supporting physical healing (Level 2) are both fully online, self-paced programs. They begin the day you register, and they end the day you complete the Practicum! If you’re like most people, you have a busy life, and need to schedule your learning and application of the material around other activities that are part of your day, week and month. We’ve put the pacing in your hands. The program is always online, always available.
If you’ve got an existing practice, and you’re integrating energy healing into your suite of modalities, you’re likely to move through the material a little faster than someone who is completely new to the concept of launching and running a practice. The program doesn’t teach any of the aspects of running a business, but there’s lots to think about as a new practitioner emerges in the field.
Energetic Assessment: Determining Root Cause (Level 3) is taught once a year, live, online. The program dates can be found here.
How long does it take to complete each EHI Practitioner Programs?
Evolving the Astral Body: The heart of the why is a roughly 150-hour commitment. You learn at your own pace, so there’s no timeline for completion other than the one you set for yourself! The more you immerse yourself in the material, the deeper your understanding of energy healing and how to relate it to your clients will be.
Evolving the Etheric Body: Supporting physical healing is a roughly 100-hour commitment. Again, you’re learning at your own pace and completing the material within the framework of your life and your work, family and leisure choices.
Energetic Assessment: Determining Root Cause is a year-long commitment. It’s rigorous and intense because the subject matter is profoundly impactful to your clients who present with physical diagnoses for illness, disease and compromised immunity. If you’re going to help clients determine the root cause behind an illness, you need to know how to do so, and your accuracy and the integrity of the process needs to be pristine.
When I complete the Astral practitioner program, am I a licensed practitioner?
No. There is no such thing as a license for energy healing at this time. There is an organization that is beginning to address regulations for energy healing practitioners, but there is no formal organization overseeing energy healing across the United States. If you are from a country other than the US, there may be specific laws about energy healing that EHI is unaware of. The onus is on each individual practitioner to determine state or country regulations.
You will be expected to certify in each practitioner program that you take at EHI. If you do not complete the requirements, you will not achieve certification. Certification at EHI conveys that you have a completed a body of work in accordance with EHI’s requirements. Your work and work product is reviewed within EHI, but is not subject to any external regulating body as none currently exists.
Each State has its own business licensure requirements for registering a business within the State. You’ll need to do the due diligence to understand business registration requirements in your State.
Upgrading to the Practitioner Program
If, after attending online courses as a non-practitioner, I wish to become a practitioner, is it possible to then join an EHI Practitioner Program?
The CLEAR course is embedded inside the Astral practitioner program. If you’ve already completed the CLEAR course as a standalone offering, and you decide to pursue the Astral Practitioner Program, you’re welcome to do so. When you register for the program, let EHI know that you’ve completed the CLEAR course and we’ll refund you what you paid for the course from your first tuition payment.
Use of Copyrighted Materials
If I’m in the Practitioner Program, may I share the materials that I receive in online courses in my healing practice?
If you have completed the EHI Practitioner Program, you may purchase co-branded self-care skills to use with clients, as well as posters that assist you in supporting your clients as they work with you in your practice. All of EHI’s materials are copyrighted, thus when provided as resources to practitioners, must be used as is, without modification of any kind.
Are these programs like Reiki?
Perhaps you’re familiar with or have studied Reiki. A common question we receive is about the difference between that modality and the Practitioner Programs at EHI.
Reiki is a form of energy work branching from many ancient lineages. It holds a spiritual component in the symbols and invocations used. It is a simplistic form of energetic healing that funnels chi to the client’s energy system.
Reiki uses a practitioner-as-conduit approach, the symbols and invocations assisting the healer with allowing the energy to flow through them and into the client. That means that Reiki is being filtered through the practitioner’s unconscious awareness on its way to the person they are treating. So your client is getting secondhand energy that goes through your system as a filter.
Though the spiritual aspects of Reiki operate from the practitioner coming from a place of “highest possible good,” that then relies on your highest possible good being, well, really high. And your personal best (self-evolution, belief systems, thoughts, self-esteem, knowledge, energetic hygiene, etc.) could be really low, or really high. It could be lower or higher than your client’s. That’s a really big issue.
Mastery of any healing modality requires time, commitment, focus, and detachment from needing a title in the first place. This is not meant to offend the true Reiki Masters out there (because they do exist!). It’s just important to address the fast food approach that many teachers are taking with their training courses, and why it’s not a responsible way to master your energy healing practice.
The EHI Practitioner Programs are an ideal way to continue (and clean up) what Reiki students have learned, deepen and extend the context and form, and integrate them into a responsible, effective, and systems-based approach to energy healing that can be monetized. In many cases, people resort to giving Reiki away for free, because there are so many ‘Masters’ out there that it’s difficult to quit your day job and hang out a shingle and pay your bills!
