Today marked the end of a 13 month journey that has profoundly changed my life. I began training as an Ignite Your Spirit Therapist with the intention of personal development and learning more about myself. I had no Intention of becoming a “healer”. To be honest, I felt some judgement about those that took a weekend course and were let loose on an unsuspecting general public and I had always vowed that I would never be one of those spiritual folks.
What attracted me to IYS was the quality of the training during the 13 months and the expectation that we complete 3 cases studies, 20 hours of services as well as 80 hours supervised healings in order to graduate and attain accreditation. IYS Therapy is known as the Rolls Royce of Healing Therapy and having now completed the process, I not only understand why it has earned this reputation but also agree with this label.
I could speak for days about my experience in the 13 months but I wanted this post to be about celebration. Todays sat sang was dedicated to the achievement of my class mates and I in completing this process.
I was honoured to be given the opportunity to share my experience with my Guru, Shakti Durga, a room of seasoned Shanti Mission Harmony centre folks as well as those new to our school. Afterwards, many shared with me that my talk had been inspiring and had encouraged them to continue on their spiritual path. This alone is worth all the hard work and commitment over the past year and a bit. I would love to thank all those who supported me through this experience and there are too many to mention but you know who you are. You loved me, encouraged me, didn’t say I was weird to be pursuing this path, cheered along my side and celebrated my victories. Thank you all and thank you Shakti Durga for creating the Rolls Royce of healing therapy!
