Professional Studies Diploma Program

Our curriculum

Our curriculum supports students in developing not only sound technical healing skills and well-developed High Sense Perception, but also a strong sense of personal responsibility, integrity, joy in creative expression, and delight in discovering and bringing forth their unique work into the world. Each year of learning offers integrated curriculum so that our students develop a balanced, grounded approach to the full expression of their hearts' longings in their lives and their healing. Each year's curriculum is divided into five areas of growth:

Healing Science (HS)

As you discover the principles, skills and techniques of Brennan Healing Science, your inner healer awakens. Develop High Sense Perception as you learn to create health on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.

Psych-Spiritual Development (PD)

The process of psych-spiritual development is a uniquely personal journey of self-awareness and transformation. You will be supported as you go deep within, developing a new relationship to yourself, others, your life task and your divine center.

Creative Arts (CA)

When the intention is to heal, the creative process merges with the healing process and old forms give way to new. Through ceremony, music, dance and other art forms, you learn to unfold and express your essential, creative self.

Professional Practice (PP)

Make the transition from student to professional healer integrating alternative and traditional care. Experience the profound teachings of Dr. Brennan and the faculty as they demonstrate the Brennan Healing Science Integrated Healing Model.

Integrative Care (IC)

Deepen your understanding and ability to integrate your learning of energy consciousness and Brennan Healing Science with the understanding of the physical body, the dis-ease process, and healing through an integrative approach.

The Four Years

Professional Studies Year 1

Year 1 focuses on levels 1, 2 and 3 of the Human Energy Field. The spiritual purpose of Year 1 is to transform the relationship with the Self, and in doing so create a foundation for the next three years’ work. This transformation is essential to becoming a professional healer. One cannot truly connect, know, or honor another until one connects, knows, and honors the Self. It is a wonderful year of opening to new horizons. As each student moves through deep changes each will find the light inside getting stronger and they will find themselves more in touch with who they are and why they have come to earth at this time.

Professional Studies Year 2

Year 2 deepens the experience of the previous year by holding the spiritual purpose of the 4th level of the Human Energy Field, the relationship to others. Ancient and modern maps of healthy relationships and transformation are explored to help guide each student, which also deepens self-awareness. The student is changing his/her relationships to other humans, nonhumans, and nonphysical beings. The work is extensive since it encompasses more lifetimes than this present one. The student’s relationship to his/her self expands through many lifetimes. There is a new relationship to this planet, this universe, and additional dimensions or realms. A great deal of personal work is taken on by each student as he or she grapples with blocks to personal expression. Insight, self-responsibility, and compassion grow, along with hands-on experience of the 4th level. One cannot heal another at the level of relationship unless one is actively engaged in healing his/her own personal relationships.

Professional Studies Year 3

Year 3 focuses on the hara line, which is the line of intention and the embrace of surrender. The hara line is a major energetic support for the shift in the student’s commitment to his/her healer-ship. The spiritual purpose of this year is to deepen each student’s awareness and experience to the Divine by studying the spiritual levels of the Human Energy Field—the 5th, 6th, and 7th—thereby setting the stage for the student’s change in relationship to the spiritual world—Divine Will, Divine Love, and Divine Mind. It is a profound year, rich in exploration, which brings the student’s understanding of self and the Divine into greater and greater communion.

Professional Studies Year 4

Year 4 focuses on the Hara and the Core Star levels. All the training of the previous years culminates in this year’s spiritual purpose, which is to assist in the emergence and expression of the unique essence of each healer. The skills which are mastered require strength, centering, great love, and stamina. It is here that the student finds autonomy through focusing on their intentionality, being in their essence, and allowing that essence to more fully express itself in the world. Each student learns to integrate the work more fully into their daily lives, giving rise to a new relationship to one’s life task and core essence. This final year offers itself in celebration as each student honors the completion of their four-year journey into Brennan Healing Science and their commitment to the community of the sacred human heart.
