This course involves both practical work and theoretical knowledge and uses accelerated learning techniques in relaxed states to assist your assimilation of the material. Methods include lecture, discussion, meditation, visualisation and practical experiential work during the course modules and home study involving reading, research, keeping a reflective journal, essays and case studies. This course demands a willingness and commitment to personal healing, self-questioning and reflection, as crystal energy work promotes your own healing and balancing and may bring up emotional or physical health issues you need to resolve.

* This course does not include anatomy and physiology or first aid; practitioners are recommended to take these courses elsewhere to supplement their energy work.
