PT 2 - Diploma Training Course

Online Practitioner Training Course PT1

This online course, which is being continually updated in the light of new insights in ‘spirit release’ techniques is designed to give students a thorough grounding in healing ego-state traumas and the release of attached or invasive spirit entities. Ego-states, a term coined by Watkins (1997), and are also known as ‘subpersonalities’ (Rowan, 1989), ‘parts’ (Schwartz, 1997) or ‘alters’ (Braude,1988). The course involves learning how to work creatively with clients by accessing into the layered realms below the conscious mind, where trauma and spirit attachments reside. This is approached through the wisdom of the ‘Higher-Self’ (H-S), to ensure proper resolution and integration. Inner trauma, which is held in dissociative ego-states, is the gateway for spirit attachment and invasion. Students are taught how to differentiate different types of spirit entity, to help their removal and to heal the ego-state trauma so that the doors can be securely closed to any further incursions.

Students are encouraged to develop their own approach and to use their intuition during client inductions so that they can be more effective therapists in helping their process. Some techniques demand an ability to utilise psychic energy in a healing modality, but most aspects can be resolved by using specific techniques that draw on the wisdom and support of client’s own (H-S) consciousness. This training is experientially based, and students will be expected to work on their own issues as part of the inner development work.

Background Experience

We expect trainees to have a background experience in some form of therapeutic practice, such as hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, regression or spiritual healing (Reiki). As part of the learning process students need to be open to exploring their own issues through ‘one to one’ sessions that entail accessing the deeper layers of their mind through a ‘light trance’ or an altered state of consciousness.
A minimum of eight recorded online one to one practice sessions (two per module) between students will need to be carried out throughout the course. These will be in addition to the formal training sessions
