Tibetan Acupressure – Compassionate Touch (TACT) Certification Course

Tibetan Acupressure – Compassionate Touch - Level Two is suitable for both practitioners and those wishing to learn a new modality. Level Two is a three day plus one evening course designed to introduce the student to the work and give them a basis in this unique set of acupressure points and their application to work with and to develop their skill. There is a mandatory session with the trainer before the course to embody the work. The student will graduate from the Level Two with a Practitioner Candidate Certificate. A detailed manual, diagrams and system CD are included in course fees.

Tibetan Acupressure - Compassionate Touch - Level Three
Over the following year after completing Level Two, the student will use case studies and ongoing coaching sessions to facilitate preparation for certification (optional). Level Three is a repeat of the course (for $250) with an upgrade in the type of coaching and assignments during the course and a focus on the use of Loving Kindness and Tonglen as the method of delivery of the sessions. At least one coaching session with the trainer is suggested before the course. An assessment session after the completion of Level Three (additional cost) and approved submission of case studies are required in order to be granted certification as a Certified Tibetan Acupressure Compassionate Touch Practitioner.

Tonglen: Compassion in Action led by Rae Hatherton ND

Tonglen is the ancient Tibetan practice of giving and receiving to exchange suffering and pain for happiness, well-being and peace of mind. While often delivered in a formal structure, Tonglen can also be practiced in a simpler, spontaneous way by people of any spiritual belief, working with unwanted feelings directed toward oneself or others. Learn the basics of this compassionate approach to dealing with many kinds of challenging situations, including the emotions often associated with loss.

“To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else’s eyes.” – Pema Chödrön
