The intent of this program is to offer two paths of exploration: (Path 1.) To provide spiritual tools and resources for lay people and health care practitioners alike that serve as a catalyst for each person's spiritual growth, self-healing, and emergence of the unique energy healer within. With this approach, the tools & benefits from each training may be used on a personal basis and/or can enhance the skills of professional healers & health care practitioners. (Path 2.) To provide the basic requirements for anyone seeking certification as a LaHo-Chi Practitioner. (Path 2 incorporates all the above included in Path 1.)

The Trainings Offered by LaHo-Chi Institute        

LAHO-CHI LEVEL I TRAINING : FOUNDATION & ACTIVATION This experiential and educational training serves as the energetic foundation providing activation, instruction, and in-depth practice of LaHo-Chi and Angel Light Healing, two types of effective and powerful subtle energy healing systems. Both LaHo-Chi and Angel Light Healing are spiritual energetic laying-on-of-hands healing systems which empower people to understand and effectively use the universal life-force energy for the healing of self and others on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. LaHo-Chi and Angel Light Healing have been proven useful when used separately and in conjunction with other healing systems as effective ways for both practitioner and client to access and integrate higher frequencies of subtle healing energies, interdimensional awareness and spiritual insight for de-densifying, restructuring, and balancing the subtle energy bodies of the human energy field, especially trauma in the emotional body. HEALING WITH SOUND & VOCAL TONING In this highly experiential, energetically dynamic, and playfully empowering workshop, you will be guided through a journey of sound discoveries into the sacred and healing energies of vocal toning, harmonics and overtoning, free form movement to sound, and meditation with sacred geometry glyphs with music. Everyone has the ability to create scared healing tones. No experience is required as there is no right or wrong way to tone. Toning is a highly intuitive experience and something that you have already been doing since birth, yet without a full awareness of the powerful healing potential. By using a combination of basic and advanced toning techniques throughout the workshop, you will be aligning yourself with the sacred energies of healing sounds, creating a highly transformative field of healing energy, and accessing frequencies of light within the synergistic group vortex.LAHO-CHI LEVEL II TRAINING: INTEGRATION This training provides a quantum leap beyond Level I for building your personal energy matrix through integration, deepening, and greater expansion of the LaHo-Chi and Angel Light energies within your multidimensional self. The process of Integration allows new levels of heightened awareness, perception, and appreciation of the subtle energy anatomy of your aura and the universal life force energies that nourish all of your energy bodies, raise your vibration, and expand your consciousness.ENERGY HEALER WITHIN: LIVE YOUR CHAKRAS™This educational and experiential workshop introduces you to the multidimensional nature of yourself, life-force energy or chi, the human energy centers or chakras, the subtle energy bodies, Light Body Activation and the Ascension process, spiritual energy healing, and the ancient Chinese hands-on energy healing system called LaHo-Chi. You will enhance and expand your knowledge, perception, and experience of the chakra system and the human energy fields through a combination of information, meditation, guided imagery, healing music, and group healing. Learn how to use your awareness of the human energy fields and the universal life-force energy for the healing, transformation, and integration of mind, body, and spirit. We are in an age of accelerated spiritual growth that calls for greater awareness of our essential nature as beings of energy.
