A Non-Religious Look At Buddhism Exploring An Ancient Model Of Consciousness In the Context Of the Digital Age
Recent graduates of The Healing Arts Center often hear HAC president, Dave Kenyon, make references to Buddhism. A long-time Tibetan Buddhist, Kenyon integrates Buddhist thinking into virtually everything he does, works on or talks about. "I have been fortunate, to have received rather extensive training from very accomplished Buddhist teachers during much of my adult life", says Kenyon. "To me, Buddhism makes perfect sense largely because you can test it in your life experience without having to take anything on faith - I am, after all, a natural skeptic."
Kenyon is an attorney by training and says that he used Buddhist principles even during the first twenty years of his career when he was a litigator. "It was often challenging to zealously advocate for a client and still keep the moral precepts while working your way toward inner calm, but then again, all life is challenging in this way and everyone has to make their way through Samsara ("the ocean of suffering") one way or another regardless of their career path. But there is a way to be effective and compassionate in nearly every occupation, if you take the time to reflect on it and figure it out."

HAC is nothing if not a “learning by doing” school. Our students will spend the better part of a year working on the public so that when they graduate they are as comfortable with clients as they are with their friends. Like most massage therapists nation-wide, roughly 60% of our graduates will wind up running their own independent wellness practices.

The body heals itself.
Whether you need brain surgery or nutritional counselling, this is the one universal truth about the human body and being – the body heals itself. Whether you take pharmaceuticals or not, whether you vaccinate your kids or not, all medicine is based on this one simple principle. When we take an antibiotic, it is for the purpose of fortifying our immune system against disease so that the body can heal itself. When we have surgery to repair an injury, we may sew tissues together, but only for the purpose of holding those tissues together long enough for the body to grow new tissue to heal the wound. Medicine, all medicine, is the art of empowering the body toward generating its own wholeness and wellness.
