Introduction to Energy Healing class set for Oct. 23

Liza Burney of Heart to Heart Healing will offer an Introduction to Energy Healing on Oct. 23 from 7 to 9 p.m.at the World Healing Institute at Unity West Linn, 20255 Willamette Dr., West Linn. Cost of the class is $20 per person. Class participants will learn how to access their energetic condition and treat common first aid ailments such as cuts, scrapes and burns using pranic healing. Pranic healing is a no-touch healing technique that offers specific, tested, step-by-step procedures for accelerating one’s self-healing ability. It works on physical conditions as well as stress, fear and phobias.

“Many people have the idea that in order to do energy healing a person has to have some ‘special’ talent,” said Burney. “This is simply not the case. Anyone can do this. My goal is to present this information in a way that is straightforward and makes sense, not as some mystical or ‘supernatural’ process that we can’t understand. There’s lots of scientific research behind this work, and I know if I want to see the research, other people do, too.”

For more information, contact Burney at 503-502-5186.
