When you apply to join as a student member, you will need to provide us with the names of two referees, one of whom can be a friend, neighbour or colleague. Your second referee needs to be a member of our organisation and this could be your tutor.
Throughout your student period, you are required to have contact with a Healer member who will act as your mentor. Your Regional Student Liaison Officer can put you in touch with Healers in your Region who could help you. Some tutors also act as mentors. You will meet your mentor either in their own home, or yours, or sometimes as part of a Healing Development Group or at a Healing Centre, where they'll be available to answer your questions and discuss your progress.
Once you have become a student member and completed Parts 1 and 2, you are automatically insured to give Healing. This can be in public situations such as at a Healing Exhibition or a local Healing Trust Centre, provided a full member is present, or by yourself with family and friends.
You may have the opportunity to attend a Healer Development Group, which might be facilitated by a tutor or a Healer member. Sometimes these groups are self directed by students themselves. They provide opportunities to practice and discuss Healing, to expand knowledge and understanding, as well as share and explore issues of personal development with other students.
Once you have become a student, you will be able to record your progress and your Healing practice in your logbook. This includes your meetings with your mentor, any relevant books that you have read, or personal development work and courses that you have attended.
We recommend that students should aim to progress to Healer Member in about 2 years. Sometimes students can apply to become a Healer Member after 21 months provided all courses are completed and your mentor agrees your readiness.
