Peak States™ Therapist Training
Course and Certification Sequence
Revision 1.3, November 11, 2011
Because the Institute is focused on taking our discoveries to the world, we emphasize the training of professional therapists - during enrollment, priority is given to professionals who intend to work at the Institute's clinics. Note that the approach the Institute has taken for acquiring peak states - trauma healing - means that our training is useful for healing personal or client issues, and for working with peak states.
Why would you want to take the training for yourself?
Who should attend?
This training is designed for professionals working in the field of trauma and therapy. Laypeople who have an interest may attend if their background is adequate (if they have experience in trauma healing through breathwork/rebirthing or other strong transformational techniques). The course focuses on gaining personal experience with the techniques through theory and practice. However, if you are not willing to feel emotional or physical pain during regressions, this class is not for you. We also do not allow people with current psychological or medical issues to take this training - see our legal safety and liability form that you will be required to sign at the start of class.
If you are already part of the breathwork community, or work with prenatal trauma using other techniques, your background is ideal for peak states work. It is a natural progression to what you are already doing. You already understand prenatal trauma, and you've probably already seen your clients go occasionally into peak states. This training allows you to understand why this happened, how to target what you need to make it happen on purpose, and how to make the states permanent.
What are some of the drawbacks to this training?
Student's Financial Expectations of Professional Training
Our training is not for everyone. The skills you'll gain will make you a better healer, but may have no direct impact on your income. For example, the field of peak states of consciousness is virtually unknown to the general public - it is very unlikely that you would increase your client base by taking this training and offering such a service. Instead, we feel that significant financial return for students will eventually be in areas of our licensed specializations (the clinical projects) or from work in our clinics.
liability and safety agreement form before your training starts.
Currently, we are only offering training to therapists (or equivalent professionals). There are several paths for students to take:
(1) Not everyone will complete the training once they start. If you end before you become certified, then you have simply added another tool to your healing toolkit for clients. However, you are not permitted to use on clients techniques that we have not yet released to the public. Student involvement with the Institute ends at this point.
(2) Learn our healing therapies (WHH, PeakStates, etc.) for therapists in average consciousness and become certified (which involves agreements like only 'charging for results'). You can use our licensed techniques with clients, and get advanced backup for your clients as needed.
(3) Learn our healing therapies (WHH, PeakStates, etc.) for therapists in average consciousness and become certified, and take specialization trainings like addictions, etc.
(4) Learn our healing therapies (WHH, PeakStates, etc.) for therapists in average consciousness, become certified, work at our clinics, and take clinic specialization training courses in major diseases (autism, multiple schlerosis, etc.). You would only be using these skills as an employee of the Institute's clinics, and not in your private practice. This is a necessary prerequisite for more advanced training (note that this does not mean that you will be offered this training, however).
Peak States™ Therapist Courses
100: Triune Brain Therapy™ (approx. 2.5 days)
This course covers triune brains, triune brain therapy, and unusual situations that can occur during regressions.
111: Basic Whole-Hearted Healing™ (approx. 7 days)
This course teaches the Institute's basic regression healing process for trauma. This technique, with its emphasis on unusual phenomena and problems of the psyche, is the basis for both peak state techniques and our advanced techniques, and our licensed healing processes. Some of the participants wrote testimonials after the workshops.
121: Diagnosis (approx. 5 days)
This gives you the process and practice for diagnosis of primary cell problems relating to psychological feelings and issues.
130: More Healing Techniques (approx. 2 days)
This course covers licensed techniques, including Rapid Whole Hearted Healing™, Waisel Base Emotions Technique, Peak Experience to Peak States Technique.
140: Core Issues (approx. 4 days)
This gives you practice in identifying and healing core issues.
150: Peak States (approx. 7 days)
The emphasis of this training is applying trauma healing techniques to acquiring peak states of consciousness. We teach and use our technique for turning a peak experience into a peak state, and our processes for the Inner Peace, Silent Mind, Life Path, and other states. Many of our course participants wrote testimonials describing their experiences.
Due to safety and liability issues, we have students sign an agreement not to use our techniques on clients unless they are certified by us to do so. This condition exists because all too many people don't even realize the safety and other problems that can be encountered with powerful therapies. Once certified, the therapist is automatically included in our safety net and get updates as they occur.
160: Safety Training (approx. 7 days)
This set of courses are to make sure that the students have some background in conventional therapy problems, like mental illness and suicide, as well as cutting edge material in spiritual emergency.
170: Therapist/Client Relationships (approx. 1 day)
This course gives you explicit training in working with private practice clients. We also cover how to do ‘charging for results’ and liability issues.
181: PeakStates™ Therapist Certification (approx. 1 day)
Certification tests for competence and verifies safety, required peak states, and other prerequisites such as legal licensed in their area, liability insurance, understands of the risks of powerful therapies, knows what to do when things go wrong, etc.
In between the modules, the students will divide into groups by geographical locations so they can meet easily. Each group will be headed by a teaching assistant that lives in the vicinity. The groups will meet in person every other week to integrate the material that was covered in the last module taught, and will meet on teleclass run by the teaching assistant in the interim weeks. Each module has to be mastered before moving to the next.
Note to students who are currently being certified:
You do not have to take any of the new classes if you were taught using the old format classes #110 (WHH) and #120 (PeakStates). Certification requirements described in course #180 are unchanged. Basic Certification course #180 can be viewed if you have questions.
