Transpersonal Nature of Therapeutic Touch® Course
Are you ready to build on the basic Therapeutic Touch® knowledge and skills you learned in the Foundations of Therapeutic Touch (TT) course? Do you want to learn enhanced strategies to assess the HEF and modulate energy as you offer TT to your healing partners to facilitate rebalancing to their energy field and support their healing processes?
Do you find that you are beginning to identify a variety of energetic cues for the healing partner’s (HP’s) field and you want to understand how to effectively respond to these cues?
If you have 2 to 3 months, or more, of regular Therapeutic Touch® practice following successful completion of the Foundations of Therapeutic Touch course and you have the desire to learn more so you can be more sensitive to the HP’s energy field offerings and be able to modulate the energy you offer to match the needs of the HP, then you are ready for this course.
When I first learned Therapeutic Touch®, I focused on the ‘technique’ of the process, and I saw more advanced practitioners offering so much more than I was capable of offering at that point in my Therapeutic Touch (TT) practice. I wanted to feel more confident in receiving information from the healing partner’s (HP's) field and trusting the guidance I received to know how to respond to the needs of the field in a manner that would be most helpful. Also, I had family members living at a distance, and I wanted to learn how to offer TT to them from a distance. I knew there was more that I could learn about offering TT, and I was eager to move forward and expand my abilities in offering TT to others.
The Transpersonal Nature of Therapeutic Touch® course is the second course in the TTNC National Curriculum for Therapeutic Touch. This course is for Therapeutic Touch® (TT) practitioners who want to build on their knowledge, skills, and insights, acquired from the Foundations of TT course and from regular practice, thus broadening one’s understanding of the essential elements of the TT process. Distance TT will be learned and practiced during the course. Contemplative practices and guided reflective dialogue regarding energetic, emotional, and mental aspects of TT practice enhance the learner’s self-knowledge and self-inquiry. Approaches to assisting individuals with a variety of health challenges will also be explored. Click here to view the dates for upcoming Transpersonal courses.
Course Facilitator: Dr. Chery Ann Hoffmeyer, PhD, RTTT (TTNA), QTTT (NH-PAI)
Hi, my name is Chery Ann Hoffmeyer and I have been practicing Therapeutic Touch since 1984 and teaching TT since 1988. I am a qualified TT practitioner and teacher in both Canada and the United States and I teach all three of the National curriculum courses. In my TT practice, I offered TT to a wide range of individuals including newborn babies; mothers during pregnancy, postpartum, labor and delivery; surgical patients, and seniors. For over 30 years, I had the wonderful opportunity to study directly with the co-founders of TT, Dora Kunz, an intuitive healer and Dr. Dolores Krieger Ph.D., a nurse and university professor.
Here is what a participant in one of my courses said about her experience with me in a TT course:
“Chery Ann is a very intuitive, perceptive teacher and facilitator. She has a wonderful way of sharing thoughts and giving examples that allow her students to pick up new ways of knowing and learning about the human energy field and healing in its many forms. Her outlook on life and learning is positive and her comments are welcomed and received in such a good way. She is accepting, loving and encourages us to learn more and be more”. G.T.
What I have learned from my ongoing practice of Therapeutic Touch:
Throughout the years of my ongoing practice of Therapeutic Touch, I discovered that as I practiced Therapeutic Touch regularly and incorporated experiences with meditation, mindfulness, journaling, and self-reflection into my daily life, that my intuitive sense was enhanced and there was a deeper knowing that surfaced. As I have grown in my practice of Therapeutic Touch, I have learned to allow the information from the HP’s field to present itself to me, and I am guided by the needs of the HP’s field as rebalancing occurs. Therapeutic Touch is an inherent part of my day-to-day life, a way of being in the world, it has become a lifeway for me.
I consider it an honor to continue to support the learning and practice of this gentle, powerful, and versatile practice, with people who have learned the practice of TT and want to enhance their ability to help others. In this Inner Processes course you will learn to be receptive to the HP’s energy field cues, and know how to facilitate balance and flow of the energy. The TT process will become more intuitive as you relax into the process as you ‘know’ the best way to respond, in the moment, allowing the TT process to become even easier.
