Soon Dr. Jason Calva will visit Moon River Wellness to introduce lessons in Pranic Healing. You may gain a lot from simply reading the course information on Moon River’s website for his two-hour Introductory class coming up this Saturday evening (April 21), as well as the two-day certification in Level 1 Pranic Healing on May 5th and 6th.
What I can add here are a few simple ideas that came from my talk with Jason, who struck me as a warm and intelligent individual. There are ultimately five levels in this type of healing, and Level I is a solid beginning for anyone interested in basic and worthy self-care, as well as the comfort in knowing these benefits are applicable to all people.
After reading the course description, I wondered how this training is any different from reiki healing. Jason helped me to understand that while they are closely related - even he practiced reiki before learning Pranic Healing and feels that having a background in reiki helped him as a Pranic Healer. Reiki is translated as “universal energy”, and the role of the practitioner is passive- meaning the role of the healer is to solely be a vessel for the healing energy to flow through them into the client. Pranic Healing, which harkens back to ancient Chinese and Indian wisdom coupled with modern scientific research, might be understood as a set of more nuanced techniques that not only scan and clear one’s energy body, or biofield, but then sends new energy to those areas that are deficient. In this way, the role of the healer is more active.
What are some commonly reported benefits of Pranic Healing? Physically, people with pain as a result of disease or injury experience a decrease in pain, as well as an increase in better breathing and sleeping. Emotionally, clients experience a release of fear and nervousness often related to grief, misfortune or destructive behavior patterns, therefore allowing an opening for better therapeutic results, be it talk-therapy, major decisions, or new coping skills. Socially, these results can affect one’s capacity to connect and maintain more sustainable relationships with those most important to them. When we get better in body, mind and soul, our relationships naturally improve. This is only a sample of experiences gained from this approach.
Pranic Healing helps people become regulated and soothed, promoting a new energy within one’s energy field, the very thing most of us seek and sometimes fail to find on our own. Jason adamantly supports a holistic approach to healthy living, including regular yogic practices, meditation, proper diet and natural medicines. One should never lean solely on any one of these for their health but find balance and consistent efforts with all of them for the greatest possible results.
Of course, that is the entire mission of Moon River Wellness. Dr. Jason Calva’s visit proves to be a most fortunate union of intentional wellness for all.
