Networking As Healing

The CfH is a non profit North American organization including representatives from diverse healing modalities. The Council is a hub for sharing healing experiences, training and wisdom that crosses the boundaries of professional training. Too often, caregivers are boxed into associations and communication loops focused primarily on people within their same fields of training and practices. Doctors, nurses, psychologists, bodywork therapists, and other specialized professionals tend to meet with others who share their background and professional focus.

Led largely by increased public interest over the past two decades, there has been a growing investment in the use of complementary therapies around the world. The public has been voting with their dollars in a major way for these therapies, spending more annually out of pocket in the US than is paid with the help of insurance for conventional medical care. To assure the provision of high standards of care, the Council is working to develop unified codes of ethics in members' organizations that could also serve as a model for other healing organizations. We have distilled the essential factors from member organizations' ethics documents.[11]

The Council for Healing offers education and guidance to those seeking healing or working in the field. Some of the members of the Council for Healing are involved in professional training programs. Others represent their modality generically, without organizational affiliations (details below). To assure that everyone's voice is heard, the CfH works within a consensus model. This requires agreement of all participants for decisions to be approved. While this is often a slower way of proceeding, it encourages compromise and cooperation among all members and does not give greater power to representatives of larger organizations, nor, conversely, diminish the power of members who represent a modality generically, with no organizational membership behind them.

The Council Board van cleef necklace alhambra imitation has been meeting by telephone conference for over six years, with an annual meeting in person. Invitational 'Summit' meetings are also arranged with groups of representatives of diverse healing modalities (not yet members of the Council) for cross fertilization of technique, methods and theories, to enhance the therapeutic capabilities of healers and improve their training and practices. For instance, two years ago we held our first Summit meeting in which twenty new invited participants joined the dozen regular CfH Board members. Discussions in plenary and breakout groups enabled participants to get to know each other quickly, with plenty of time for personal discussions over meals and in one on one exchanges of treatments. A similar, briefer workshop was presented at the American Holistic Nurses Association annual meeting in June of this year. Participants uniformly report great satisfaction with the opportunities to network with others who are outside their usual professional groups.

Many members of the Council for Healing are involved in public speaking. One member provided testimony to the President's Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Council members are a resource to consumers, healers, mainstream medical providers, public policy makers, and researchers.

Many Council members are involved in conducting healing research and in the compilation and promotion of awareness of research that has already been carried out. Research assures us that the treatments we offer/seek actually provide what they claim to do. We have a Research Advisory Board to provide expert consultation van cleef arpels necklace replica in design, methodology, and exploring what research questions might profitably be addressed. Given that scientific research has largely been applied to physical phenomena, new and innovative ways to research the often intangible world of healing must be explored and developed.

The Council for Healing Board includes representatives from diverse branches of healing, training organizations, individuals who practice or research a variety of healing techniques, and naturally gifted healers.

Medical Intuition uses high sense perception and intuition to identify physical, emotional, and spiritual factors which contribute to well being. Practitioners in many healing modalities use their own intuition and that of professional intuitive consultants to address their clients' needs in a more in depth manner. This approach to healing can effectively identify subtle factors that may go unrecognized using more conventional approaches.

Noetic Field Therapy: Noetic means spiritual mind and derives from the Greek word nous, which is the wind of spirit that emerges from the void as the first emanating spirit of creation. Noetic Field Therapy is a spiritual approach to counseling and personal development that helps awaken us to our soul, align with our destiny and develop our natural spiritual power. The Noetic field is more than the energy field surrounding the body. It is also the mind and spirit that communicates within, and through the energy field.

Self Healing is most likely the oldest mode of healing we know as human beings. We have the innate ability to heal or restore ourselves when listening to the healing voice and power from within. All healing modalities include some potential for self healing, acknowledged in conventional medicine as the placebo effect, although they often do not focus on self healing or do not teach how to incorporate the modality into a personal or professional self healing practice. All individuals have the ability to access and use their own healing potential.

Therapeutic Touch: (TT) is a scientifically based healing practice in which the human being is viewed as a complex, dynamic whole and healing is seen as the means of restoring integrity of the body, mind, emotion and spirit.
