AHA In-Person Certification Courses

Reiki Level One Certification

Tanya Nord, C.Ht.

Reiki (ray-key) means Universal Life Energy. Tanya teaches that Reiki is a safe body therapy technique that balances the body, mind and spirit, facilitating the healing of the whole person. Reiki involves the use of gentle, light touch applied to the body to transmit healing energy.

This healing art uses the same techniques practiced by the Lamas of ancient Tibet who originated this system thousands of years ago. It was re-discovered in the 1800's by Dr. Mikao Usui, who practiced REIKI in Japan. He passed the knowledge on to others who eventually brought it to Hawaii in 1937.

Tanya is a Certified Reiki Master and Certified Hypnotherapist who will initiate you into Reiki Level One so that you can use these techniques to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well being.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing for this "hands-on" workshop in which Tanya will teach the basic level techniques for Reiki Certification.

Sign up early. Seating is limited.

For more information on upcoming Reiki Level One Certification Courses, please visit the AHA Calendar of Events.

Reiki Level Two Certification

Tanya Nord, C.Ht.

Prerequisite: At least six months since taking Reiki Level One Certification.

This workshop is for those Reiki Practitioners who are ready to move to the second level of Reiki Certification.

Tanya is a Certified Reiki Master practicing Reiki for over twelve years. She will initiate you into Reiki Level Two so that you can use these techniques to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. You will be introduced to three symbols which will allow you to practice distant healing.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing for this "hands-on" workshop and bring notepads and purple crayons or pencils.

Sign up early. Seating is limited.

Hypnosis and Pain Management - Certification Course - Live on Zoom
2021-03-03 at 16:28 Pacific Time

The pain management course is excellent. Watching the sessions with Jeff and Carol really emphasized the different ways emotions can influence what we feel physically. It was amazing to see how Jeff's overall thinking became more flexible and open as his sessions went on. He had such a huge change in how he saw the habits and routines that were causing him so much misery, and he didn't seem to have any idea that was related to his sessions - although he loved the sessions and realized they were decreasing his pain. (I have noticed more mental flexibility in my own life since starting hypnotherapy sessions also, and I really don't know if I'd have made the connection if I weren't also a student of hypnotherapy - at least not to the changes that aren't directly related to what I've discussed in sessions). Jeff did relate the pain improvement to his sessions though. Carol experienced something similar overall, but it seemed like she made the connection (albeit not right away) more clearly. Perhaps that has to do with her suggestibility versus Jeff's. Or maybe it was just that Jeff's life situation issues were less obvious to him.

The Mythic and Archetypal Imagery workshop was really a lot of fun. I was disappointed when the day was ending, even though it was 8:30 PM Eastern time. It's fascinating how the subconscious uses symbols to reveal and move past all kinds of issues. One of the most interesting parts was watching people having no idea of why an image or setting appeared or what it meant, then when they investigated further, sometimes by asking questions, sometimes by bringing in assistance (or both), it became clear and everything came together. I experienced that myself in an advanced Imagery practice the day before, and I'm glad I did because although I believed in other people's experiences, it seemed like something not available to me. And something I wish I'd brought up in the Sunday class was that the day before, in the Advanced Imagery "this and that" practice (not the real name!), I had a book image (which a lot of people had the next day) - I was curious if anyone else had book images in Advanced Imagery as well. Mine was a human-sized ancient dusty gorgeous leather book, which was along the lines of what the Mythic experiences were also. Definitely a common theme.

At first I wasn't certain if I would benefit from this class, but I stand corrected! This class gave useful Imagery journeys that I can see using with clients who may become stuck and need assistance moving forward.

Incredible day of Imagery! Both relaxing and enlightening. I benefited from it personally and professionally. The mythic journeys are symbolic and imaginative so much so that I personally don’t feel as attached to some things I’m dealing with which makes it easier to apply creative solutions and see it through a truly new perspective. The Witch in The Woods was transformative for me and I also know exactly what clients mythic journeys will be great for! Thank you Cheryl!

Advanced Imagery is a truly vital class. It feels really good to have so many ideas for helping people who feel stuck for all the various possible reasons. I'm really glad I signed up for the full Therapeutic Imagery program at this time instead of waiting to do it later (because I was doing NLP still).

I cannot express how much I appreciated and enjoyed this training. Joe is an outstanding teacher! He role models psychology and physiology of excellence and allows himself to be open and vulnerable so that the class can receive through his teaching. It is personal and memorable and I am THRILLED that this has been offered via Zoom so that I was able to attend. 5 stars from me (highest rating)! Thank you so much for this opportunity! I am hoping that Joe offers an advanced NLP class in the future, I would be thrilled to learn even more advanced NLP techniques.
