The Herdman Healing Sanctuary

Healing Training Courses 2024 (Accredited)

We are delighted to be offering six month healing training courses

This Course is accredited by the CMA (Complimentary Medical Association) and held at the sanctuary one weekend a month for six months. At the end of the course you will have developed the basic skills and understanding a healer needs to start the journey into helping others. The course is informative, practical and also very much fun. It is designed not only to help you become a healer, but also to guide you on your spiritual path. 

Homework between each session. The course requires an openness of self-reflection. We cannot begin to heal others until we heal ourselves. The course is also very hands on, you will be practising healing on others and learning very quickly how to connect with this work. As this is a very practical teaching Martin and Libby limit these courses to a maximum of eight people.

During the six weekends Martin and Libby will share with you the many forms of healing that they have collectively experienced over a 30-year span of study and practice.

We offer our healing training course over 6 months in order for participants to practice in-between each session and  regular contact in between weekends, and the setting out of practice and study in between, is a great way to learn and put into practice the knowledge that you have gained. The alternative is to have a 12-day intensive course, however in our experience this is just not as effective as having mentoring, practice and study over a six month period.

During the course you will learn chair healing, distant healing, couch healing, hands on healing, hands off healing, tandem healing (two healers working together) meditation technique’s, the basics of shamanic healing, and reiki healing. You will also learn about the importance of vibration and sound healing with gongs, shamanic drumming, sound bowls and many other forms of sound healing.

Most importantly you will study and learn how to make a connection to the source of the healing energy. This is a powerful form of grounding and attuning to the spirit world, without which all the knowledge you may have would be of no use. You will also learn about the wheel of life or (medicine wheel) and how to incorporate this into your own healing journey.

It is the intention of Libby and Martin that during your time with us you will be regularly mentored and helped through this intense healing training course with humour, love, support, and care.

The outcome will be that in a relatively short space of time we can and will send out more healers into the world and to enable them with the tools to make a change.

The path of the healer is not easy. However If you have ever wanted to be a healer, or sometimes wondered why you were born, or you feel it’s just time for you to give back and make a difference, then this training is for you.

It is Martin’s and Libby’s intention that after this course you will have the tools and confidence to start your journey into making this world a better, healthier, and happier  place.

What does a Mandala symbolise:

As a symbol of the cosmos or universe, a traditional mandala is a square containing a circle, and the entire design is symmetrical and balanced. Some spiritual traditions use the mandalas for meditation or for making a spiritual space. Etymologically “mandala” is derived from Sanskrit words “mandala” – essence. And “La” – container. Referring to a “container of essence” that embodies various literal and metaphoric symbols.
