Cultivating a Healing Presence (for Bastyr students!)

Cultivating a Healing Presence
Do you long to put more of your heart and passion in your healing work?
Are you feeling tired, burnt out, or disconnected from your own vitality?
Do you wish you could step more fully into your role as a healer?
Your heart’s in the right place. You’ve worked hard, completed trainings, and cultivated expertise.
But there’s so much more to being a healer than “book learning” and clinical experience. The missing ingredient for many of us is learning to consciously cultivate a healing presence and nourish ourselves as a healer.
What if who you are was the medicine you offered the world?
… feeling ease and confidence in creating a deep healing space for your clients
… knowing exactly how to create intimacy, trust, and rapport
… feeling at home in yourself, relaxed, energized, and inspired
… living your passion and sharing your gifts fully
… feeling deeply nourished and vital in your work and life
… walking your talk as a healer.
Your capacity to offer healing presence to others is a direct reflection of your own vitality. It’s an expression of the passion and unique flavor you bring to your life and work.
Please join us for a 2-day seminar designed to support Bastyr students like you in connecting more deeply with the essential truth of yourself as healer.
In one powerful weekend, you will:
- Understand how to cultivate your own healing presence and share it in every relationship and situation
- Learn practices to expand your awareness, center yourself, and reconnect with your ground
- Define and consciously engage the concrete, subtle, and causal realms of awareness
- Recognize how it feels to embody a healing presence with others
- Learn practical tools to “heal thyself” and commit to your personal healing and growth.
- Connect with deep presence, love, and compassion through listening and communication practices.
Our dynamic format is highly experiential, focusing on immediate and direct application to your life and work. We’ll shift fluidly through instruction, individual reflection, and engaging group work.
We begin by focusing your own awareness, embracing “healer heal thyself” as a necessary path to serve your clients with greater presence and compassion.
Next we expand your self awareness to include relationships with others. You’ll practice skills including communication and coaching, somatic practices, meditation, journaling, dyad and group work, and subtle energy observation and listening.
As you learn to develop greater trust, rapport, and connection with others, you will also engage in an inquiry process to access a more authentic and embodied way of practicing your healing art.

The Vital Medicine approach recognizes that the foundation of any doing is a clarified quality of being. Our ability to embody a healing presence reflects our own inner world. As such, it’s essential that we healers cultivate our own awareness, deepen our intimacy with ourselves, and become more conscious of embodiment in all its forms. By investing in ourselves first, we’re able to share our gifts with everyone around us in more sustainable, compassionate ways.
