Brennan Healing Science is a powerful healing modality pioneered by Barbara Brennan, physicist and former NASA researcher. Her books Hands of Light and Light Emerging are considered classics in the field of energy work.  Brennan Healing Science touches every aspect of the human experience – spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical. I work with the energy consciousness system which includes the physical body, the chakras and various levels of the auric field, the dimension of hara, and the core star dimension.  

Chakras – Sanskrit for “circles” or “wheels” – are energy centers which can become blocked or unbalanced. This leads to physical illness or other forms of dis-ease.  The dimension of hara is the level of intention, and core star is the spark of divine essence in each of us. Working with these dimensions of human experience can help you find your soul’s task and live with a clear connection to your own divine qualities.

When I say I am an energy healing practitioner, many people ask, “You mean like Reiki?”  I am also a Reiki Master, so I can say that in some ways these modalities are similar – they are both forms of energy work -  but in many ways they are different. Brennan Healing Science works with your personal process and life experiences which are the cause of energy blocks and unhealthy patterns.  This allows for lasting transformation. Training in Brennan Healing Science also emphasizes practitioner integrity and the importance of healthy boundaries in the healing relationship. 

In an in-person healing session, the client lies fully clothed on a massage table as the practitioner works with the energy in and around the body. At times, blockages in the energy system can best be addressed by consciously exploring them together. Since the energy system is not limited by time or space, sessions can take place at a distance. In a long distance healing, we might be on the phone or you may choose to rest comfortably in your own space, receiving the healing energy. Here are some things that people often report about their experience of a healing session:

“I kept seeing colors go by on my mind screen. I don't understand it, but my pain is gone.”

“I saw many scenes from my life – maybe they were moments coming up for healing."

“It felt like that state in between sleeping and waking – like when I hit the snooze button and then keep sleeping.”

“I feel a bit like I did back in college when I tried drugs. Very relaxed.”

“I couldn’t tell exactly where you were because it felt like there were others around the healing table.”

Brennan Integration Work, provided by a trained Brennan Integration Practitioner (BIP), takes place on the phone or in person, and assists you in developing a deep awareness of your own energy system. In this process, you are fully conscious as we explore your habitual energy patterns.  Students enrolled in The Barbara Brennan School of Healing are required to work with a BIP or a qualified therapist of their choice.
