HEART PATH THERAPY™ For Therapists WEEKEND RETREAT

to Sep 16

HEART PATH THERAPY™ For Therapists WEEKEND RETREAT

BECOME AN INSPIRED AND EMPOWERED PSYCHOTHERAPIST HEAL YOURSELF IN ORDER TO HELP OTHERS HEAL INSPIRED BY DEBRA FRANKLIN, LCSW, MAESTRO MANUEL RUFINO, HER TEACHER, AND THE GOLDEN DRUM

The best therapists are those that have experienced a powerful inner healing.  There are many wonderful psychological and spiritual healing techniques, but until you heal your own wounds in order to really free your heart, mind, and intuition, those techniques will not be fully effective.

As you transform, you empower love, understanding, intuition, and compassion, the most important ingredients to healing. Integrate those with spiritual approaches, sound healing, guided imagery, and energy psychology, and you will discover and empower your true therapeutic gifts. You can learn to see and feel clients “wounds” even before they talk about them and intuitively guide them through a very beautiful life changing journey once you have traversed your own.

Debra Franklin developed The Heart Path Therapy ™ for therapists. It combines powerful healing approaches from ancient spiritual wisdom with modern uses of guided imagery, Family Constellations, inner child work, sound healing, and energy psychology.

Training and support groups are available, but this is a very special weekend including Debra’s spiritual teacher, Maestro Manuel Rufino, and the Golden Drum community that he has inspired and their gifts. This transformational weekend will take you on an inner journey to experiencing life in a new way. In turn, you can become a uniquely creative psychotherapist.

Debra experienced deeply transformational healing and spiritual development with many different gifted teachers. her most recent of at least 10 years, Maestro Manuel Rufino. He helped her own healing and development and in turn helped Debra to inspire the Heart Path Therapy for Therapists™ for Therapists.

The Heart Path Therapy™ Approach teaches the following:

  1. To identify possible roots of emotional struggles, through exploration of personal and ancestral history
  2. To describe potential benefits of prayer, intention and affirmations
  3. To define and describe energy psychology
  4. To demonstrate guided imagery
  5. To demonstrate how to guide effective inner child work
  6. To identify and explain the Chakras (energy centers) and the importance of releasing blocks
  7. To describe and practice Family Constellations Concepts by Bert Hellinger
  8. To define and explain sound healing
  9. To demonstrate practices from sacred traditions including beneficial ways to meditate
  10. This powerful weekend integrates the gifts of Maestro Manuel Rufino and the Golden Drum Community as follows along with Debra Franklin’s teaching in the Heart Path Therapy™ method.

Golden Drum Intensive Healing Workshop

Family Constellations and Heart Path Therapy

Family Constellations was developed by Bert Hellinger during his observation of Zulu tribes. It is an effective way to transform what is holding you back so that you can live your life from your greatest potential. They uncover and dissolve the blockages affecting your relationships, finances, profession, and health so you are free to live the fulfilling life you were really meant to live.

You are about to embark on a soul journey. Are you ready?

Some of the Benefits of Family Constellations:

  • Improving your relationships (parents, partner, children, colleagues, etc.)
  • Turning your past into a source of strength
  • Acquiring a healing inner image of your family
  • Freeing you and your descendants from invisible burdens
  • Transforming your blockages and self-sabotage
  • Increasing your empathy, love, and compassion for yourself and others
  • Opening your heart to love

This powerful soul work assists in creating positive shifts in:

  • Relationships
  • Success in life
  • Recurring emotions (depression, fear, anxiety, sadness, feeling unworthy or unrooted, blockages, stagnation etc.) 
  • Achieving life goals
  • Finances
  • Unexplained symptoms
  • Health
  • Self-sabotage
  • Infertility
  • Addictions etc.

"A miracle is a shift in perception", says The Course of Miracles. That is exactly what begins to happen after Family Constellations. However, that is only the beginning.

Date: Saturday, September 8, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm, pre-registration required by Wednesday, September 5.
Cost: $135
