The Foundation Certificate in Energy Healing has been developed for those individuals who seek a deeper understanding of the healing arts, perhaps (but not essentially)  having learned or experienced healing for themselves, or those who are ready to take up the challenge of self-enquiry that always precedes a period of spiritual growth.

Throughout this course we will focus upon simplicity and demonstrate the basic standards of healing practice required by the major healing organisations such as UK Healers, The Healing Trust and the Guild of Professional Healers. Students will be encouraged to develop a personal meditative practice; they will learn to listen to their inner voice and explore the subtle messages from the body.

In order to have the ability to heal ourselves and others effectively and function powerfully in the world, we need to understand and consciously work with our own energy field. This process of deep experiential learning is one of gentle unfolding into the truth of who we really are, and it will be a life-changing experience as we allow ourselves to experience that truth as a spark of the infinite Divine intelligence that connects us all.

The topics for this first part of the training will include:-

  • What is our understanding of “healing”;
  • Where does it come from and where is the evidence;
  • Understanding Energy and the Nature of Illness;
  • Preparation for Healing and working with the breath;
  • Introduction to the Healing Act;
  • Distant Healing;
  • Relaxation and Meditation techniques.

The full foundation training takes place over a period of 18 months -2 years, and students will be provided with course notes and certification, and will be fully monitored and mentored throughout.

Northumbria Healers was set up in April 2012 to provide a centre for the provision of healing services to local communities in Northumberland and Tyneside.

The centre at Riding Mill in Northumberland offers you the opportunity to experience the relaxing benefits of energy healing in a welcoming and calming space.  Healing sessions are available on the last Saturday of every month and will complement any medical treatment or medication that you are taking, with a view to helping you to manage the impact of your illness.

The Centre is open to all and is based at the Parish Hall, Millfield Road, Riding Mill, NE44 6DJ from 2-4pm.  No appointment is necessary, just drop in, but please be aware that the last healing session is at 3.40pm.  The atmosphere is quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Should you have to wait, you will be offered some light refreshment, until a healer is available for you.

Healing is offered free of charge, but to help towards the rent and running costs, donations are appreciated in order to keep the Centre open. A suggested donation is £5.00 but we are grateful to accept whatever you can afford .

On occasion we also use Newton and Bywell Community Hall at Newton, near Corbridge. For details of where and when the Healing Centre will be held, please click here.

The Healing Centre is easily reached by road or rail. For further details please click on the Google Maps icon below.

*This project is supported by the Awards for All Lottery Grant and by Northumberland County Council Community Chest Programme.
