Professional Studies Diploma Program

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.

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. The student is changing his/her relationships to other humans, non-humans, and non-physical 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.

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.

Bachelor of Science Degree Program

To earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Brennan Healing Science, students must complete the following:

• Four-Year Brennan Healing Science Professional Studies Program

• Four Courses in Anatomy and Physiology

• Nine Courses of General Education in the following areas: English, Science/Math, Social/Behavioral Sciences, and Humanities (all offered online)

Anatomy and Physiology

A fundamental and comprehensive study in anatomy and physiology is an important aspect of learning for the professional healer. This knowledge provides an essential framework for Brennan Healing Science students, as they learn to work with the energy of specific organs and body systems. An understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the physical body, and its interrelatedness to the Human Energy-Consciousness System supports a truly integrative approach to healing.

During the third year of training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, students learn hands-on healing techniques and skills for balancing and assisting the healing of specific organs and body systems. This focused work requires a knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the physical body so that students are able to relate their High Sense Perceptions and healing work to the associated physical structures and their functioning. Anatomy & Physiology for Healers (A&P I) must be completed prior to Year 3 of the academic training.

Anatomy and Physiology I (Anatomy and Physiology for Healers)
The curriculum focuses on the structure and function of the human body. Each system of the body is reviewed in terms of its overall structure and function; the relationship of the Human Energy-Consciousness System and its physical manifestation; hands-on healing techniques; utilization of High Sense Perception in accessing structure and function; and experiential exercises integrating Brennan Healing Science skills, Psych-Spiritual Development skills and the development of High Sense Perception.

Anatomy and Physiology II
The students utilize and expand upon the skills and knowledge they have gained in their study of basic Anatomy and Physiology (A&P I), as well as their general studies in Year 2 of the Brennan Healing Science Academic Program. Moving beyond structure and function, this course assists in developing the student’s High Sense Perception and explores the effects of relationships and supporting systems on physical health and illness.

As Year 2 focuses on the theme of relationship, the Anatomy and Physiology II Course extends this learning to explore the facets of relationship in regard to the physical body, including how the physical body 6 in relationship to the energy consciousness system responds and the resultant manifestations of disease or recovery from illness. Adjunctive to the second year of training in Brennan Healing Science, it also enhances the student’s ability to integrate the Healing Science skills with the functioning of the physical body, including how beliefs, thoughts, and emotions affect the body systems and physical health.

Classes focus on the dynamic physiologic and energetic processes of being in relationship with others and with the world. Classroom lectures and experiential learning covers character structures and their relationship to the manifestation of disease processes, the physiologic and energetic relationship and interaction between body systems, the science and energy consciousness of psychoneuroimmunology, the effect of the environment on the immune system, the energetic, emotional and physiologic impact of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorders and the energy consciousness and related pathophysiologic aspects of heart disease.

Anatomy and Physiology III
A&P III students continue to learn about the energetic and physical manifestations in the healthy body as well as the changes that result from common illness or pathophysiology. During this course of study, students learn to expand their High Sense Perception from a cellular to a holographic scope that includes the dis-ease history of the body’s organs. Health issues specific to men and women are discussed, as well as the specifics of working with clients in various life stages. Year 3 of undergraduate study is supported, emphasizing the Healing Science skills of restructuring and 5th level work, as the students explore more fully the physiologic changes that occur during dis-ease processes and healing.

Anatomy and Physiology IV
A&P IV students focus on the integration of their learning with the application of their skills in preparation for working with clients in a clinical setting as a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner. Through direct supervision, students are guided through comprehensive learning and evaluation in clinical practice sessions, demonstrating the following: personal knowledge of the Healing Science, Psych-Spiritual Development,Professional Practice and Integrative Care skills through thorough client interviewing, intake, history taking and assessment; accurate High Sense Perception; appropriate use of Brennan Healing Science hands-on healing techniques; session closure; and post-treatment recommendation. Classroom7 lecture time focuses on the further development of each student’s ability to work deeply within specificity in relationship to the disturbances in the related structure and function of the Human Energy-Consciousness System.

Advanced Studies program

The Advanced Studies program offers professional courses of study in Brennan Integration Work. It provides a powerful journey of transformation—expanding and deepening your facilitation skills as a healer and further opening the way for the full expression of your life’s work.

Advanced Studies Year 1
Year One of the Advanced Studies program focuses exclusively on a practitioner’s capacity to attend to a client’s ongoing personal process. It emphasizes body and energy awareness in a person’s emotional and psychological experience. Students are taught how to track and understand individual and group dynamics and to experiment with making process observations and reflections versus giving guidance and advice to their clients.

Advanced Studies Year 2
Year Two of the Advanced Studies program is a continuation and deepening of what students learn in Year One. In Year Two, students are expected to demonstrate a clear understanding of individual process dynamics, and an ability to deepen a client’s work, both within a session and over the course of successive sessions. Students participate in group presentations, and specialized segments are presented to incorporate techniques to help clients manage emotional intensity.
