Teachers of Healing | Blog Your Blessings

Like music, healing generally must be learned by experience and practice. With music, the student must hear a piece played well to understand how it was meant to sound. With healing one must generally be in the presence of the teacher to, well, feel the vibes in order to know how healing feels.

I'm grateful for my primary healing teacher, the Rev. Eleanor Button, and for her tolerance of the exuberant experimentation of her students. She insisted that we study with as many teachers of healing and related subjects (like sacred sound) as we could. In her classes, she encouraged us to share and practice what we learned.

Tibetans have a special reverence for teachers. They say you cannot reach enlightenment without one. I feel especially blessed to have met and taken teachings from some truly wonderful Tibetan lamas.

And so today, as I count my blessings, I realize how lucky I am to have been in the right place at the right time to study with such teachers. May each of you have similar or even greater blessings!

Thanks for sharing this. I have found that being in the presence of my own teacher has a great healing effect. I think teachers must need the presence of their students, too!

Teachers pass on the soul of the thing they teach. Sounds like you are really into healing. This is a wonderful vocation. Have a great week.
