Become a healer of mind, body and spirit through Bastyr University’s new Indigenous Wisdom Teachings noncredit training program.
In the workshops starting in fall 2012, instructor Lauren Nalder will guide you on a journey to your inner landscape while awakening your ability to heal.
“I provide profound experiences that offer a lifetime of healing benefits to anyone seeking emotional well-being, increased physical health and vitality, or spiritual awakening,” she says.
Nalder, instructor and owner of The Center for Elemental Healing and Wisdom, draws upon her own training and client experience grounded in the living teachings and cultural wisdom of indigenous peoples to help guide participants to a place where they fully trust themselves and their instincts, as well as to speak and act from a place of authenticity.
The program through Bastyr’s Department of Certificate, Community and Continuing Education offers two tracks:
Nalder says her program is unique because she believes everybody has the ability to become a healer. “The ability to become a healer and re-ignite others to the passion in their lives is within each of us,” she says.
Another highlight of the program is an annual meditative and ceremonial retreat. The first retreat will be a celebratory trip to the Yucatan Peninsula to visit Mayan ruins and sacred sites in June 2013.
Indigenous Wisdom Teachings will be open to all health care professionals and the general public. “This program is for anyone who can ask the question ‘What more can I do for myself, my family, fellow humans and my planet?’” Nalder says.
Online registration is now open for the first two classes of the Inner Journey track:
