A Course on Quantum Healing

Science has evolved beyond the limited perspective of materialism, making it now possible to condense and integrate many of the different empirical healing rituals of history into one comprehensive, logically congruent, and simple technology of healing. The scientific approach makes the practice of holistic medicine far simpler and easier than you ever imagined.

This is an intensive four day course in a rural Idaho setting for individuals and/or very small groups.

Contact Dr. Ronald Hamm for details and to schedule a class.
Author of Analog Medicine and The Philosophic Foundation of Holistic Medicine

Pranic Healing Intensive Level I

Offered on an ongoing basis throughout Oregon, this workshop introduces the practitioner to the basics of energy anatomy, how to identify energetic blockages and/or imbalances, and then to cleanse, energize, and revitalize the area to accelerate self-healing. This course covers techniques and comprehensive protocols for working on the physical level for chronic/acute conditions, as well as the mental/emotional level for stress and anxiety. Includes a module on distance healing, preventative healing, and professional self-care for burnout prevention.
