Originally published in Energy Magazine: The official Publication of the Healing Touch Program March issue. Greetings from Cynthia Hutchison Healing Touch Program Director
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?”

In the ten years since the publication of our first book together, Energy Medicine, we have seen the world begin to re-embrace the ancient art of energy healing. More than three hundred practitioners have completed our two-year Certification Program in the past three years and tens of thousands of individuals have taken classes from us this past decade. What was seen as strange and woo-woo is becoming the respected cutting edge of health care — and for good reason.
Energy Medicine (EM) is accurate, efficient, and cost-effective. It is based on a different model than conventional medicine, which focuses on the biochemistry of cells, tissue, and organs.
