UPDATE: The 2020 Portugal Healer Training - Levels 1-5 has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus for May 3-7, 2021. Due to the evolving situation with the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic, I'm logging everyone's request to be on the waitlist for 2021. I don't want to create a lot more administration work until I know more about next year, so I won't be opening registration for any available spots as I had planned in July. Please try to be patient and email your requests and I will notify you all when I know more. Stay tuned and be well!

The 2021 Europe Healer Training Curriculum

Date: May 3 - 7, 2021

Arrive – May 2

Level 1 - May 3 – 9am – 5pm, level 1 will be covering the basics of the healing work including breathwork fundamentals, use of other healing tools such as essential oils, sage, palo santo, sweet grass, sound healing, as well as intuition exercises.

Level 2 - May 4 – 9am – 5pm, level 2 will be building on the foundation of level 1 to give the healer a more thorough understanding of how to be successful in the business side of healing work. We will be working into the concepts of self-love, exchange, money, value, abundance, and purpose to help you flourish in your life and career.

Level 3 - May 5 – 9am – 5pm, level 3 will use understanding gained in the first two levels and build the healing work into understanding group energies and leading group work. The main focus will be on leading breathwork circles, but this class can be applied to all group activities.

Level 4 - May 6 – 9am – 5pm, 7pm - level 4 will consist of sharing how to make the healing work a sustainable life long practice and business. I will be sharing all of the ways I work to keep myself and my work spaces clean and clear. I will demonstrate how I work and engage with a spiritual altar that helps me anchor and stay grounded. I will also share and teach how to work intimately with the elements, the directions and all of natural kingdoms and explain why this is so important when we are doing energy healing with others. I will also be fielding and answering all questions about your practices and the healing work.

               May 6 – 7pm - 8:30pm creative expression night. Using creativity as a shortcut to healing – music, dance, writing – all creativity welcome!

Level 5 - May 7 - 9am - 5pm - level 5 is a class I teach on rare occasions. It involves working into the body to help people understand the connections of what they are holding in the body. I'm not teaching bodywork, but rather some of the energetic and emotional storage places where people hold energy in the body. I will be sharing how to use your intuition to sense and read into the body and how to use a very limited but precise amount of touch/pressure to help bring awareness to what is held in the body. I will also be teaching some deeper exchanges with essential oils and how they can be used to deepen the healing experience.

               May 7 - 4pm – 5pm Closing ceremony

Depart - May 8


* Required homework to prepare for the training - I'm now requiring that everyone read my two books - The Reluctant Healer, and HEALING. Both books are available on Amazon/Audible as audio books, they can also be purchased as digital books on Amazon/Kindle. AND you can also download HEALING off of my website for FREE https://www.davidelliott.com/writings/healing-/ It really helps the flow of the classes to be prepared, and at minimum download HEALING and do the exercises. Thank you!
