All classes are small group and more like mentorship, you will get personal attention.  The materials can also be taught one on one.  For those of you interested in increasing your healing skills consider a mentorship program.  The group level and experience will set the tone for the class, if inexperienced will be an introduction, if clients will be healing demonstrations, if healers will learn/practice the healing technique.

All dates/times are subject to change.  Unless noted otherwise we will be meeting at Bender Healing at 239 Church Street, Phoenixville, PA 19460.
