Are your clients asking to develop a deeper spiritual connection? Perhaps you are starting a career in holistic healing modalities, or are ready to add new skills to your existing practice. Delve deep into the experience of spiritual connections, enhance your intuition, expand your consciousness, engage in self-discovery, and explore playful tools for inspiration so that you may provide these same benefits to your clients. Oct 13-14 & Nov 10-11; 9:00a.m.-5:00p.m. Instructor: Mary Lee LaBay, PhD Prerequisites: Experience with using basic hypnosis techniques helpful, but are not required. 50 CEUs

Designed for the health practitioner (holistic or allopathic) whose practice would benefit from the use of trance induction, relaxation, visualization, mind/body healing, and specific philosophical and quantum reality concepts, as well as for those who wish to pursue a new career path that includes exploration of the subconscious mind, communication with spiritual beings, and other rich, spiritual experiences.

The enhancement of intuitive senses and deep exploration of the spiritual and imaginal realms are rapidly gaining popularity around the world.  Be a part of this exciting, enlightening, and fulfilling profession.   Now you can be fully confident in your knowledge and skills, and facilitate successful experiences every time.

This training has two parts - a home-study module, and four days of classroom experience. Shortly after registration you will receive your course workbook to begin the home-study portion of the course. You might spend up to eight hours of reading prior to the first face-to-face class session, and an additional 14 hours between the two weekend sessions reading, completing exercises, and conducting practice sessions.


Before you ever come to class, you will begin learning the terminology and concepts of the techniques and modalities covered, which produce for your clients an enhanced sense of self-awareness, desired change, and deep healing. You will study the structure of the techniques, read case studies, and begin to assimilate the material.

Your home-study will include information on:

  • Concepts of boundaries - how we perceive them, how they fail us, and how to   create ones that serve us better in the physical and in the spiritual realms
  • Discussions of consciousness and existence
  • Understanding planes and dimensions, including the astral plane, and how they affect us
  • Varieties of spirits, where they reside, how they function, plus psycho-spiritual self-defense information and techniques
  • Identifying unwanted spiritual influences and protocols for spirit releasement
  • Information and methods for receiving messages, wisdom and guidance from Spirit Guides
  • Theory and instructions for induction and deepening of trance, creating a safe space, and many other techniques incorporated for discovery, exploration, resolution, and healing
  • Concepts and steps of retrieving fragmented soul or energy pieces, to regain your personal power and return to a state of wholeness
  • Theory and stylized protocol for achieving and experiencing spiritual journeys to gain insights into your path, your future, as well as solutions, guidance, and those valuable “ah-ha” moments 
  • Case studies that provide a deeper understanding of their application


In addition to the home-study portion of the course, you will attend two, two-day weekend sessions (28 hours) in the classroom experience focusing on discussion of the material to ensure assimilation, live demonstrations of each of the techniques to see them in action and in combination, and ample time to practice the techniques to gain substantial personal experience - both as the therapist and as the client.

During the classroom-based instruction you will experience and practice techniques for:

  • Inductions, deepening, and emerging safely from hypnotic trance states
  • Accessing subconscious and spiritual wisdom through specific protocols to resolve issues and move through life with more ease and awareness.
  • Demonstrations and practice using modified shamanic-style techniques of Soul Retrieval, Journeying, Spirit Guide Communication, and more
  • Gain personal experience during practice sessions, meeting your own spirit guide, journeying, and retrieving parts of your energy or soul that may have been lost or diminished throughout many lifetimes
  • Unique methods of providing supportive healing and change for your clients during these spiritually-based techniques
  • Techniques for discovery of possessing spirits and protocols to safely deal with them
  • Effective and rapid method for moving the client to a more desirable state of being in the world

Response from previous students is that this course is life-changing for everyone who participates. Whether you choose to use the experiences in your professional practice, or, like some students, use it for personal development, you will undoubtedly come away with a wealth of information and experiences that are bound to expand your perspectives, stretch your imagination, flex your intuition, satisfy your logical quest, and give you a stronger sense of self-knowledge. And you will have gained additional tools to take your professional practice to the next level!

  • Describe the nature and purpose of a spirit guide
  • Demonstrate the ability to guide a client into a communication with their spirit guide
  • Describe protocols for discernment and dialogue between client and their spirit guide
  • Describe the purpose and applications for spirit journeys
