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.
Students graduating from the massage program have completed 600 hours of training to be eligible for state licensing in either Missouri or Illinois. In order to be inducted into the Order of Twin Hearts from the Massage Therapy Training Program, students must meet the following requirements:
At the Red Robe Ceremony on December 21st, 21 students will graduate from the Energy Medicine Master Track. This twenty-week intensive course trains wellness workers in all three levels of Reiki and three levels of Pranic Healing. Energy Medicine Master Track inductees into the Order of Twin Hearts are chosen by the Headmaster based on excellence in training and dedication to healing.

What It Means to Be in The Order of Twin Hearts
Once inducted, members of the Order of Twin Hearts are members for life. There are no fees to be a member, and no action is required of members to stay in the Order. Inductees are selected from HAC's Massage Therapy Training Program, Transformational Breathwork Master Track, or Energy Medicine Master Track. Next year, The Order of Twin Hearts will become a not-for-profit philanthropic organization that will promote healing in various forms, advocate for human wellness and raise money to help students make it through wellness training programs for the benefit of the community. Members already volunteer in HAC's Free Cancer Clinic to give Reiki and/or Pranic Healing sessions to clients undergoing cancer treatment.
Why HAC's Honor Society is Called "The Order of Twin Hearts"
Twin Hearts members embody the spirit of the Healing Arts Center. The term "twin hearts" refers to the union of the heart and crown chakras in the Pranic Healing system as used in the Meditation on Twin Hearts for World Peace developed by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui. Joining these two chakras creates profound healing power that can be directed at the earth itself. Every student at the Healing Arts Center is taught the Meditation on Twin Hearts and it is the foundation of the school's entire educational philosophy.
OTH Inductees are recognized at the graduation ceremony with a framed certificate and additional medallion on the necklace that graduates receive. Their photos are displayed alongside existing members of the Order on our website.

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.
For Most HAC Students, The Journey Begins and Ends In the Ocean of Reiki Room
Five years ago, The Healing Arts Center relocated from its former location on Big Bend Boulevard in Maplewood to its current location on Manchester Avenue in Warson Woods. At one time the old location had been a house and had a very homey feel to it, but the property owner sold critical parking space to the City of Maplewood and the building could no longer be used as a school. The new location is centrally located and, while not in the most picturesque building ever seen, has two very important features - it is very quiet and there is plenty of parking.
In preparing the space for the school a great deal of purification work had to be done. Flaming salt bowls were lit. Reiki blessings and Pranic Healing purifications were made. The space had last been used by Missouri College before that school moved to the Hanley Road location that closed last year. Now it was time for The Healing Arts Center to make the space its own.
HAC Is Ready To Welcome Its Family Back On January 8 With A Vision Of Wellness For All In The New Year
2017 is in the past (whew) and it is time to hit the reset button to launch 2018. The Winter Session starts on January 8th which means that our "healers in progress" will be returning and approximately twenty-five new students will be joining this very special community. The administrative team has been in the office all this week preparing to make 2018 the best year at HAC ever.
HAC instructor Terrie Yardley-Nohr has given thousands of scarves to students over the years, sharing warmth and merriment.
by Kate Lilly
This is, in fact, the seventeenth year that Terrie has made fleece scarves for her students. As the instructor for the Business class, the Clinic Supervisor of two Cancer Clinics and the Program Director at the Healing Arts Center, Terrie interacts with virtually every student. Each winter, Terrie brings a large wicker basket filled with rolled-up scarves to school. She brings the basket to each class: Level 1-Day, Level 1-Night, Myofascial Release, Advanced Techniques, and Business so each student can pick the scarf they like best.
The massage therapy training program at the Healing Arts Center is a year long, so each Christmas, there is an entirely new set of students that delight in receiving their very own fleece Terrie-scarf. It's an annual Christmas tradition. When asked about why she makes and gives scarves to everyone at school, Terrie said, "It makes my heart feel good."
