"Absolute Delight"

I enrolled in both the Certificate in Colour Therapy and Certificate in Crystal Healing and found them to be an absolute delight to study. I now feel excited about how both modalities can be used in our daily practices to enhance happiness, wellbeing & health. The activities are sometimes challenging and all rewarding. 

The support and guidance throughout the course was excellent. The healings are subtle, yet profound. Learning from Natural Energies College was a fabulous experience.

FAQ

What type of assessment activities do I need to complete with this course? Assessment activities are designed to assist you in developing the necessary skills of a healer. The majority of assigned work will be practical. Upon practising each activity, you will then type up a summary of the activity; your observations and the outcome and submit this to the college via email. 

You will need to practise your new skills on friends or family as well as engaging in self analysis and self healing activities. Therefore whilst you are learning, you are also creating a happier, healthier life for yourself and your loved ones. By doing so, you also become a positive role model for your clients as well as developing an empathy towards the processes that you will be taking your clients through.

"Valuable Experience"

I have always loved colour, but using it to help people improve thier lives was very satisfying.

The case studies at the end of the course and the feedback from my tutor was a very valuable experience.

Assessment activities must be submitted monthly (at least). If you are unable to submit work for a particular month, that's fine as long as you notify the college via email prior to or during the month in question. The college will provide you with a recommended quota of activities to submit each month; however you can increase (up to 20) or decrease (down to 1) this quota to suit your lifestyle. If you submit less than the recommended monthly quota, then it is just a matter of catching up in other months.
