The HAC Vision of Wellness: An Energy Healer in Every Household
Lama Lobsang Palden Returns To HAC To Teach Tsa Lung - Sacred Tibetan Breath Yoga With Tibetan Sound Healing Meditation On July 15
Tsa Lung Links Breath With Consciousness
Over the past year, Lama Lobsang Palden has delivered a series of workshops that teach participants elements of various Tibetan breath yogas. Included in his workshop series has been an introduction to "Tummo", the yoga of generating internal heat made famous by the Mahasiddha Naropa in the 10th Century. Tsa Lung is the name for a variety of practices that teach practitioners how to develop vital energy (lung), or prana, in the energy channels (tsa) of the body.
For years, The Healing Arts Center has taught its massage therapy students basic transformational breathwork. Two years ago, the school started teaching this breath practice to the public by offering its Introduction to Transformational Breathwork workshop three times a year. HAC has been steadily building up a body of people who are trained to practice this intensive healing practice. Some students have found that transformational breathwork has allowed them to completely recover from depression, panic attack disorder and other debilitating conditions often associated with past trauma. It is not unusual for a breathwork client to say that a single session of transformational breathwork can do what years of talk therapy cannot.
In the past century, several modern western traditions of breathwork have emerged:
Massage Therapy offers many benefits for cancer patients. It can greatly reduce the stress and anxiety that often arises from having cancer and can reduce or eliminate the pain of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Student therapists who participate in the clinic are among HAC's best, in fact, being chosen to participate in the HAC Free Cancer Clinic is considered honors status at graduation. Being of service is part of the HAC mission and our students and graduates deliver care through Reiki and light-touch massage to clients who truly can use healing touch. HAC has developed considerable expertise in restoring quality of life to cancer patients.
New developments in the Healing Art Center’s Free Cancer Clinic include:
One For The Record Books: HAC Graduate Matthew Tarrillion Is The First To Earn Every Honor Offered At The Healing Arts Center
This past Friday the Healing Arts Center graduated a group of outstanding students from the Massage Therapy Training Program. Among them, one student stood out for his excellence. Matthew Tarrillion received every award that the Healing Arts Center offers, plus a student scholarship from Massage Envy.
The Healing Arts Center is proud to announce the newest inductees into The Order of Twin Hearts. Five students who have met the requirements to be eligible for this honor have been chosen. It is HAC’s highest acknowledgement of a student. Order of Twin Hearts members embody the spirit of the Healing Arts Center in their being, their skills, and their passion for healing. Eligible students are nominated by faculty and also must meet minimum requirements for attendance.
Students in Cancer Clinic Training listen to Connie Smith share about her experience with breast cancer and how receiving massage and Reiki in the clinic provided her relief, calm, and a sense of well-being.
Ms. Smith has been coming to the Healing Arts Center’s cancer clinic since she started receiving treatment for breast cancer in 2016. She shared with the students in the Cancer Clinic Training about how restorative it was to come to the clinic and feel cared for and nurtured in contrast to her experience of beginning cancer treatment at the hospital. Connie provides a personal perspective in the training for students to understand what cancer clients are going through and the difference that the Cancer Clinic makes. Contributing to the student’s training is only one of the ways in which Connie has demonstrated her commitment to the clinic. She has become a very energetic advocate for Cancer Clinic because of the unique care that it provides for people dealing with the effects of cancer treatment, chemo, radiation, surgery.
The Healing Arts Center bids a fond and loving farewell to Rocela Ginther as she becomes the Assistant Director of MBA Recruitment at the Olin School of Business at Washington University.
Over the past three years, no one has entered the student body at The Healing Arts Center without the help and encouragement of Rocela Ginther. Not only has she been part of a management team that has increased enrollment at HAC by nearly 31% since 2014, she has greeted prospective students with openness and ease, allowing them to find an educational path that fits them. The Healing Arts Center does not "sell" its education. Because its unique and highly transformative program requires students to be ready and willing to learn and change, it is important that students find and choose HAC rather than the other way around. The school has a long standing policy of refraining from talking prospective students into enrollment. Rocela is well known among our students for giving them the space and the encouragement that they needed to choose and begin a life-changing journey.
At graduation on March 16, HAC will honor four outstanding students by inducting them into the school's honor society.
The nominations are in, and four students are recognized for embodying the ideals of the Healing Arts Center.
On March 16th, 2018 the Healing Arts Center will host the Red Robe Ceremony and present graduation certificates to students who have recently completed the school's Massage Therapy Training Program (MTTP).
The inductees for Winter, 2018 are:
The Order of Twin Hearts (OTH) takes its name from the Meditation on Twin Hearts for World Peace originally taught by Pranic Healing Grand Master Choa Kok Sui. Master Choa was one of the most important teachers of HAC Headmaster, Tom Tessereau. Tom was a member of Master Choa's inner circle of disciples and it is the teaching on Twin Hearts that has become the foundation of the spirit of The Healing Arts Center. The Twin Hearts meditation links the crown and heart chakras (the Twin Hearts) to draw down divine energy into a human being to empower compassion and healing on a global level.
Taught Only Once A Year, The Breathwork Master Track Is Back, But Enrollment Is Limited.
Last year, HAC launched a revolution in wellness care by training twenty-four new certified breathworkers in its first-ever Master Track Program. Breathwork has become a staple wellness modality at The Healing Arts Center in both its workshop programming and professional clinic offerings. HAC considers transformational breathwork to be one of the most powerful and accessible healing modalities available anywhere. This is because of the ability of breathwork to completely release the psychological effects of suppressed emotional obscurations such as trauma, sometimes in a single breath session.
HAC has been advocating that massage therapists should consider diversifying their therapeutic training to include modalities that can be delivered in a group setting. Direct one-on-one therapies have a strictly limited earning potential whereas modalities that can be delivered in a one-to-many classroom distribution can greatly enhance the earning potential of a massage therapy, yoga or other holistic practice.
