The Bodhi Bridge

~ A Foundation for Awakening ~

Bodhi Philosophy

What the world needs more than anything are Bodhisattvas of peace, lawyers, politicians, teachers working

tirelessly (better yet, joyfully!) for the enlightenment of themselves and others.

— Sogyal Rinpoche

This training equips healing arts practitioners with the tools, practices, and modalities for empowering their clients to  move forward on their soul’s evolutionary journey and to help address the opportunities, needs, and issues that arise on the path of awakening. The journey to fulfill one’s soul purpose/Calling is filled with immense opportunity and fulfillment, invitations for growth and up-leveling, obstacles to be faced and overcome, and wounds, imprints, or patterns to be healed and cleared so that the greatest version(s) of one’s life, relationships, and Calling can be more fully actualized.  Advances in integrative healing and energy medicine make this not only  possible, but far more  swift, easy, and effective  than most people realize. This innovative program is for new or existing healing arts practitioners who have truly done their own personal work and wish to develop their skills and mastery for working with clients as a Level 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5  Integrative Healing Practitioner. Participation in the CSL Medicine Wheel program is required for acceptance to this program. For more information about the IHP Mentorship, contact us: +1 (503) 616-1177. More about this project
