Dr. Jean Watson takes Healing Touch Level 1

Posted by on in HT Community Newsletter

Cynthia Hutchison, HTP Educational Program Director

On January 9th-10th, I taught a Healing Touch Level 1 class in Boulder, Colorado, my home town. Each year I offer two rounds of Level 1, 2 and 3, one early in each year and another in the autumn. My most recent Level 1 was very special for two reasons. The first is that I had five amazing instructors in training who were there for a Teaching Assistant experience.

The second reason this class was special was that we were honored to have the presence of Dr. Jean Watson, who is one of the most honored and esteemed holistic nurses on the planet! In the 1970s, when Jean was the Dean of Nursing at the University of Colorado in Denver, she was a primary founder of caring science and caring theory, which she has made her life's work. She has become a world-renowned and deeply beloved nursing consultant and nursing theorist in many countries around the world and is highly regarded for her helping to bring Caritas (caring) back to hospitals, health care facilities and other health related organizations. Many hospitals have earned Magnet status because of incorporating her caring science and theory into their organizations. Jean was friends with our founder, Janet Mentgen, and they lived fairly near each other in Colorado. Jean has been a keynote speaker at HTP conferences twice and endorses HTP. Jean has received Healing Touch a number of times and recently decided to take the Level 1 course with me.

Dear Readers,
b2ap3_thumbnail_Cynthia_h_09_10_EM.jpg
Here in Colorado our heaviest snow months are March and April. But just today I saw my first robin of the year and I know I’ll soon be hearing the song of the Chickadee who announces spring in the Rocky Mountains. It’s been a long, cold snowy winter here which makes spring even more welcomed and appreciated. Those of you who live in temperate climates where the seasons are a part of your yearly rhythm know how the increased warmth, longer days, and signs of new growth in nature awaken in our inner selves an awe and excitement about the new life springing forth all around. Our spirits are lifted by Mother Nature who nourishes us, provides us with beauty and wraps us in the soulful feeling of hope and new life. 

Because my time in nature is such an important part of my daily life and spiritual practice, I feel a natural synchronization between what is happening in nature and how it reflects into my personal and vocational life. Healing Touch is obviously a large part of this chapter of my life’s work in the world. After experiencing the death of our dear founder, Janet Mentgen, almost five years ago, HTP for a few months initially experienced a sort of organizational winter…a stillness… a time of inner reflection….a pause of growth…a time of waiting…. the necessity of going within, like sitting in front of a candle on a winter’s night and contemplating “What is the quality of the light within us and how can we express it?”

 Dear Readers,

December 2009 marks the close of our 20th Anniversary year. We are now beginning our 21st year, a new decade of orga­nizational maturity. Healing Touch has received worldwide b2ap3_thumbnail_Cynthia_h_09_10_EM.jpgprofessional recognition for its contributions to body-mind-spirit health and well being accomplished through the heart-centered practices of thousands of HT practitioners, students and instructors. Consumers are asking for it; health care facilities are realizing how HT and related holistic-integrative practices enhance the health and happiness of clients, patients and staff; and practitioners of HT testify to the benefits of practice in terms of personal and professional inner development and ful­fillment. Scientists who research HT, energy medicine and con­sciousness/intentionality are validating the reality and benefits of energy medicine practices. We are living in exciting times!

In honor of bringing HTP’s 20th anniversary celebration to a close, we would like to share with you a list of an overview of some of the accomplishments achieved over the years…
