You’ve taken the critical first step along The Healer’s Path. Now, let’s make sure you have what you need to succeed. To be successful you will need three things.
First, you will need the physical tools to help you on your journey. That includes a reliable internet connection, so you can take in the instructional materials. Because the original instructional videos are a key component of this course, online access is critical to your success. Time is a tool, and we expect you’ll bring it along, over the length of the course, investing in yourself through this class. The more time you invest, the more you will take from this class. Although video notes are provided, you’ll still want to keep a journal of your thoughts. A simple pencil or pen and paper notebook can work just fine.
There is a saying: “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together. And we intend to help you travel far! For maximum growth along your Healers’ Path during our time together, you’ll rely on a few friends for supportive feedback. They should be close enough to you that you could share with them the fact that you are taking this class, that you’d be comfortable asking them for input, and that they’d be likely to give you honest feedback. Make a list of possibilities. When the time comes, we’ll equip you with a script to help you ask for their help.
Finally, you’ll need to bring an open mind, an open heart, and a teachable spirit. Open yourself to the very real possibility that your investment of time in self-reflection, journaling, contemplation and exploration can – and most likely will – bring transformative growth for you. When you are ready, you’ll click the link to access lesson number one. You’ll open the PDF notes and watch the video presentations, augmenting your experience with supplemental materials, and reinforcing what you’ve learned with a quick quiz. You will find that, even by the end of the very first lesson, you’ll already have new tools in your toolbox. By the time you’re done, you’ll have given yourself a gift to last a lifetime: your traveler’s backpack will be brimming with the tools you’ll need to better understand and heal our hurting world, as you Journey Along the Healers’ Path. That’s it. You’re ready and so are we. Let’s do this!

NHM Ministrants provides digital resources for healing, hope and harmony. Dedicated to the premise that “all who are called, are called to be healers,” our offerings are inspired by Jesus’ admonitions regarding loving kindness, radical solidarity, open-armed kinship and non-judgmental servant leadership. Looking to the wisdom of the physician healer tradition, including The Hippocratic Oath, we move beyond “first, do no harm,” to take an active, interventionist approach, empowering all who ask, simply, “How can I help?” A division of Elfenworks Productions, LLC, “Beyond Film & Music.” Online at www.ministrants.com.
