The true spirit of The Healing Arts Center is represented by members of the Order of Twin Hearts: compassion, diligence, aptitude.
Three exemplary graduates will be inducted into the Order of Twin Hearts at the Red Robe Ceremony on Friday, May 24th. At the Red Robe Ceremony, The Healing Arts Center will award certificates to students graduating from the year-long Massage Therapy Training Program.
What are the Twin Hearts?
The term "twin hearts" refers to the heart and crown chakras of the Pranic Healing system and is also the name of a special meditation for world peace created by Pranic Healing Grand Master Choa Kok Sui. Thus, it seemed appropriate to name our honors society after this intention of causing wellness for all.
Newest Order of Twin Hearts Nominees Announced, HAC's Highest Honor to Be Bestowed Friday, March 15th, 2019
The Order of Twin Hearts is an honor given to those who embody the true spirit of The Healing Arts Center.
At The Healing Arts Center we graduate a new class of massage therapists every 10 weeks. However, these graduates are not only massage therapists, but wellness professionals who have studied the art of healing. They have accomplished this through exercises exploring consciousness such as Transformational Breathwork and Reiki, and through the personal transformation that comes from completing the year long, 600-hour training program that includes learning about business, the ethics of massage, anatomy and physiology, pathology, assessment, basic and advanced massage techniques, myofascial release, sports massage, and practical experience in the student clinic.
Honoring Top Students at the Red Robe Ceremony
On Friday, December 21st, The Healing Arts Center is honored to graduate 20 people from the Massage Therapy Training Program, and 21 from the Energy Medicine Master Track. In recent years, HAC graduations have become substantially larger than in past years due to a substantial growth in enrollment in the school's Massage Therapy Training Program (MTTP) and the popularity of the school's advanced level training in the Master Tracks program.
HAC Selects 8 Students and 1 Alumna as Inductees into the Order of Twin Hearts at the October 12 Graduation Ceremony
Friday, October 12, 2018, the Healing Arts Center will host the Red Robe Ceremony, honoring the achievement of 22 students who have completed the 600-hour, 52 week, massage therapy training program. Several students of this graduating class have achieved the highest honor at HAC, being inducted into the Order of Twin Hearts, HAC's Honor Society. In addition to the eight student inductees, HAC will also bestow this honor on an alumna, Deana Galloway.
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.
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.
Exemplary Master Track Students To Be Inducted Into HAC's Honor Society At Graduation December 15
The Order of Twin Hearts is HAC's honor society. Fittingly named after the Meditation on Twin Hearts for World Peace, The Order represents the highest acknowledgement that HAC gives to students. Students are selected by the faculty for this honor and are considered to be those who best reflect the commitment to skill and compassion taught at The Healing Arts Center. On December 15, 2017 in addition to five massage therapy students who will be inducted, we are proud to announce that six graduates from our first Advanced Energy Medicine Master Track will join this esteemed body of HAC alumni.
HAC's Highest Honor Goes to Five Special Massage therapy Training Program Graduates
On December 15, 2017, The Healing Arts Center will hold its second biggest graduation in history. HAC is expected to graduate sixteen massage therapy training program (MTTP) students and twenty-three Advanced Energy Medicine Master Track students. The faculty has selected five of the MTTP students to be inducted into the Order of Twin Hearts, HAC's elite honor society. The Order takes its name from the Meditation on Twin Hearts for World Peace originally taught by Pranic Healing Grand Master Choa Kok Sui.
Order of Twin Hearts inductees are nominated by the faculty. Each faculty member is only given two votes. Inductees must receive nominations from at least two faculty members. Every inductee must have at least 90% original attendance for every class and clinic that they take throughout their education. While the selection criteria is undefined, the faculty nominate students who best represent "the spirit of The Healing Arts Center" meaning that they exhibit compassionate practice of massage therapy and devotion to using their skills for healing.
"It takes your breath away to see The Order of Twin Hearts grow each level session with addition of amazing people. They are the best of the best and we are very proud of them", said HAC president, Dave Kenyon. "OTH members completely get what we are doing here and while their sense of service requires them to go last during the graduation ceremony, they will all step out front to lead this profession."
Congratulations to our newest Order members and to all our graduates. We are very proud of you and take great solace in knowing that you will be stepping into the world to relieve suffering and promote well being.
