practitioner ethics

Many people are transitioning in these times to more therapeutic or spiritual vocations.   A stumbling block is that whilst people may be gifted and intuitive that they are not prepared for therapeutic settings.  To be a practitioner means to know about conduct, ethics with working with peers, with different groups and keeping the ego in check.    Its very normal for zealous over enthusiasm to mean that work is not grounded and that fledgeling practitioners have an inflated sense of their capacity.     


In an effort to provide some bridging for practitioners of healing modalities to get oriented in the right direction Maaike de Haan and Victoria Padma Khandro have made a short bridge course to help to promote self-enquiry and to undertake pilot or small scale interactions with clients from a safer footing.  Please note this does not substitute for accredited practitioner training.    If you are serious about helping others as your profession then you need to upskill.  Dharma Stars does have a certification course on offer and there are also many established training bodies out there doing Certificate and Diploma programmes.

This is a pre-recorded course which has specially recorded sessions and some that are collated from other course that Dharma Stars offers for Therapists and Shambhala Warriors and those going through Awakening Processes.  As such we have kept the costs low.

Quantum Transfiguration Students will receive one zoom seminar as part of the registration on the course.   At further intervals we will then run a seminar for those registered on the course when we have more than 6 enrolled.   These seminars will become learning material for further participants.   We have various in person satsangs, events and activities in UK, Mexico and beyond and these will also help to expand your studies including some deeper ‘Space-holding’ scenarios which will be conducted by PKV and senior students in the Autumn and beyond.
