Mantra Healing - Course Information

The Mantra Healing courses are modular in nature, meaning that each level is a complete unit in itself, giving both practical and theoretical knowledge which can be utilised immediately. However, each subsequent level builds upon skills and knowledge acquired previously, leading the student to a deeper understanding and greater proficiency at working with Mantra Healing.

Students are encouraged to join to join the web-based discussion-group in Mantra Healing, in order to share their experiences and insights. As well as being a useful a means for keeping in touch with other practitioners, the discussion-group creates a unique learning opportunity - a forum for discussion of interesting, difficult, and/or successful cases. In addition, information on enhancing Mantra Healing practice, auspicious days for practising specific mantras, and information on further courses may be distributed via the discussion-group.
