What is Holistic Mentoring?
This is the method I have developed to help others learn to live in and as their own wholeness. The word holistic, means "incorporating the concept of holism, or the idea that the whole is more than merely the sum of its parts, in theory or practice." And a definition of the word healing is "to make sound or whole." *
My work takes the theory or concept of a client's wholeness and helps them put it into practice. This happens over time through healing sessions combined with energy education and mentoring.
My first learning of energy healing work was Healing Touch, a modality that was developed by nurses for use in hospital settings, with clients with compromised health. The idea of working to restore the person's energy system to a grounded, centered and balanced state was thought to improve patient outcomes. Healing Touch (and Reiki) research has shown positive effects of intentionally working to restore others' energy systems including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energy centers and fields.
Over the years, as I gained understanding of what a healthy energy system should be, I realized that so many of us fall short of energetic integrity. Why was this? I have found it's because people have never learned about it. So, using my training as a special education teacher, along with my healing knowledge, I developed a systematic approach, Holistic Mentoring, to help others become whole and turn the theory of holism into practice.
