ThetaHealing Courses

These courses are new to Arborvitae and are extremely helpful, informative and fun, with lots of hands-on experience. They apply the same techniques that the founder Vianna Stibal, used to have Creator heal herself of cancer. Marianne Karsh is now a certified ThetaHealing Master Instructor and Practitioner and is excited about offering the following:

PictureBasic DNA
 

Basic DNA introduces ThetaHealing® techniques and focuses on activating the 12 strands of DNA within each participant. The chronos, or youth and vitality chromosome is made more active, the telomeres are strengthened to reverse the aging process, and students experience an opening to the unconditional love of the Creator.

 

The heart of this class is the practice of techniques that allow you to change life patterns held in place by core, genetic, historic and soul beliefs, either self-inflicted or externally imposed. The student will learn to identify his/her own beliefs as well as to practice pulling them for others in the class. This practice can quickly reveal systems of belief that might take traditional psychotherapy years to uncover, showing the body how to replace limiting beliefs or feelings with positive ones. Issues of safety are emphasized, especially when making genetic changes in the body. 

 

Other topics and exercises include learning discernment when working with guides and guardian angels, an introduction to the laws of manifestation, doing future readings, balancing serotonin and noradrenaline levels, pulling heavy metals and radiation, soul mates, waywards and implants, The Seven Planes of Existence, and the protocols for healing a great variety of conditions/diseases working with the Creator. By the end of the seminar, the student is prepared to become a practitioner of ThetaHealing®.

Nature Journaling Retreat - Putting Your Spirituality to Paper

CLICK HERE FOR .PDF

July 13-15, 2012, Ignatius Jesuit Centre of Guelph

The Nature Journaling Retreat will draw upon your spirit and soul, as the Ignatius Jesuit Centre environs and atmosphere inspire you to write and contemplate like never before.

Keeping a nature journal is a wonderful way for writers, novice or experienced, to become spiritually centered.

Our facilitator, Marianne Karsh, will teach you various techniques of journaling, though what you choose to put in your journal is up to you. Nature journals run the gamut from field notes, which limit themselves to objective descriptions of what the writer has observed, to fully developed poems, stories, or essays in which the landscape is a major character. You may even decide to draw or paint in your journal.

Inspiration will come from nature walks and guided outdoor meditations in this unique and inspiring landscape, as well as from sharing insights with other retreatants. Optional yoga sessions, specifically designed for writers, will also be available daily to stimulate the creative flow.
