Originally published in Energy Magazine: The official Publication of the Healing Touch ProgramÂ December/January Issue.Â Â Greetings from Lisa Mentgen-Gordon CEO, Healing Touch Program
Dear readers and HT community, Welcome to the December/January combined issue of Energy Magazine. As the holiday season approaches, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for Healing Touch. We feel that it is our loving and heart-centered community who make our jobs a pleasure and keeps the work of Healing Touch so successful.
We are winding down 2010, but the excitement is really building here at Healing Touch Program for 2011. Last month I reported to you that we had just finished our three year strategic planning and that we felt that it was important to communicate our vision, goals, and company values with our community.
Our business coach, Julie Wright, is an expert in taking businesses and people to the next level. She has taught us that when we make goals, we need to make â€śBig Audacious Goals!â€ť Over the coming year we will be sharing more of our Big Audacious Goals and where we plan to be growing in the year 2011.
In this issue of Energy Magazine you will see an update and information about the national accreditation that we are moving towards. I would like to thank the many practitioners that are contributing their time and expertise toward this important accreditation for Healing Touch. In addition, I would like to thank Chris Gordon, Accreditation Project Manager, Janna Moll and Dale Ferg, Consultants with Energy Medicine Specialists, and Sue Walker, who is working directly with all the Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), these leaders are making accreditation with the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) a reality.
Also in this issue you will find the Healing Touch Professional Association (HTPA) review of what it has accomplished over the past year as well as the new goals for 2011. I attribute the growth and success of this professional association to Sharon Robbins, the Executive Director of HTPA. Sharon is an outstanding leader for HTPA and, as you can see, has wonderful things in store for 2011. She is helping all our HTCPs to grow and achieve their professional goals with the tools she is creating and providing through HTPA.
In addition to these two articles that show you where HTP is headed this year, Julie Wright has an excellent article, Energy Medicine Practice: Attracting Wealth in Your Practice, Step 2: Cleaning Up Messes, which is a continuation of her series (Step 1: Getting Clear, was published in the July 2010 issue). It is a must read for all who want to grow their HT business.
Our theme for the December issue is JOY, and I hope as you read the articles you will feel the JOY that Healing Touch has brought to so many and the JOY that we all feel in belonging to this amazing community. We are ever thankful for the heart filled contributions that Cynthia Hutchison, Healing Touch Pro-gram Director, continues to make in helping create our strong and blessed Healing Touch Community.
Lastly, I would like to congratulate Billy Courtney, editor of Energy Magazine and her team, Nancy Strick, assistant editor and Margaret Nies for accomplishing the publishing of 50 issues! We are extremely proud of this publication and feel that it is a great contribution to Healing Touch and the field of Energy Medicine.
May your holiday season and the New Year be filled with much joy, happiness, and success, and remember to take the time for yourself to create your own Big Audacious Goals! We look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals in the coming year.
