Exploring the Textbook with a Partner

You’ve purchased your book, and now what?
Want to practice the skills?
Want to explore the techniques?
Want to experience a session?
Want to learn how to do remote healing?
Want to meet new, like-minded people even during this pandemic?

We’ve devised this free course to heighten your enjoyment and learn how to get the most out of your investment. We’ve also posted a new, additional series of videos to accompany this free course and support your learning.

There is a huge amount of content in the book. By exploring the book together with someone else, you expand what you perceive, and get a chance to discuss the content.

To join the course and get your partner, email Vivien at VSchapera@gmail.com

Experience the techniques both as recipient and as practitioner

Book Organization

The book is very carefully organized. To fully appreciate how it is organized, you need to experience the organization as a user of the book. This needs to be a discovery process.

Skills, Techniques and Procedures as Supported by Video Demos

It is important to learn to use these terms consistently. Ascertain the difference and how each of these terms is being used in the textbook, and learn where to go to view demos of skills vs where to go to see demos of techniques and procedures.

The video demos are an integral part of the book, and have been made for you. An essential part of using the book successfully is to know which videos contain which demos – so familiarity with the available videos is very important.

The videos have been hashtagged with the techniques and procedures either with the exact title of the technique (e.g. “Fast Basic Detox”) or matching keywords. This means that a Google search will yield the video(s) that contain(s) that technique, as will a search on the website.

As documenting the techniques and procedures is a rather big task, I do appreciate your help in continuing to build the library of videos. When you identify missing techniques and procedures, please let me know. Likewise, if you find a demo to be skimpy or unclear, please let me know that too.

Using the Book in Sessions

Using the book in a session is very different from reading the book. This is also a discovery process. These are some of the questions that come up:

  • How much prep do you need to do before?
  • What is possible during the session itself?
  • What do you say to the client when you need time in the session to look something up?
  • If you have prepared in advance, how do you change course when necessary?

Experiencing the Techniques

In-person classes are set up so that you can experience techniques both as practitioner and as recipient. This experience is very important on many, many levels. Theory and practice are different sides of the coin, and to become proficient, both are required.

Working with a peer, slowly and methodically, is the best way to achieve this! How wonderful that we have this opportunity.

Working Remote – the Extra Layer

Working remote opens up new information. I didn’t like that I was forced to switch to remote sessions, but it has been an eye-opener in a positive way. I have new respect, and new understanding, and new skills regarding the etheric dimension. Unable to rely on my direct hands-on skills, a whole new range of energetic skills have kicked in. The remote work is very pure and very strong. Please take it slowly!!!

Remember, you are supposed to be learning NEW skills. You are not supposed to feel like you know what you’re doing. If you do think you already, you won’t be able to hear the crystals guiding you. Begin every piece of study with beginner’s mind: “I don’t know and I’m excited to find out!!!”

Please support your partner in “not knowing.” This is where the power is. Seeking answers, generating good questions – this is the way we learn best.
