Thank you for joining our collaborative event, “Navigating the Future of Energy Healing: Policy & Practice Insights.”
Join the conversation that matters and secure your spot for the “Navigating the Future of Energy Healing: Policy & Practice Insights” event hosted by the Consciousness and Healing Initiative.
Co-created and hosted by CHI’s Certification and Licensing Working Group and CHI’s Energy Healing Practitioner Council, this collaborative project was the culmination of over a year’s work intended to provide education and awareness on issues that affect the energy healing practitioner community.
All of us at CHI understand that this is a hot topic within the practitioner community. While some people may be unaware of what is going on with regard to this topic, we realize that folks involved in this work have a variety of opinions on what should or should not be done. The purpose of this event was not to share personal opinions or give advice, but rather for the panelists to educate to the best of their abilities based on their respective backgrounds.
CHI has no vested interest in promoting any solution or lack thereof through this event and maintains a neutral position on this topic. We were honored to facilitate this discussion where we could all come together to educate ourselves on issues that affect the energy healing practitioner community.
