David's training as an Energy Healer

By: ; Date: Mon Jan 04 2021 13:13:44 GMT-0800 (Pacific Standard Time)

I have a long and varied list of trainings in the healing field.

The principle training I have is as a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner, with the Barbara Brennan School of Healing (BBSH), class of 2001. BBSH runs a four year training program comprising the most in-depth and intensive energy healing programs of any school in this field.

I am a Reiki Master/Teacher, and am the author of The Reiki Page (thereikipage.com), an internationally recognized web site and resource for understanding Reiki. I have trained with Hypnotherapy, Massage, have taken shorter trainings with a variety of healers, teachers of shamanism, and completed the Leadership program offered by Phoenix II Seminars. I am also a software engineer working in Silicon Valley.
