This is a 100 hour course, with 80 hours in class and 20 hours out of class work, open to all (not just LMT's!).

We are VERY excited to announce that Gloria Two Feathers is bringing her profound and popular Art and Craft of Energy Medicine (extended program) to PTSM as part of our 2024 Continuing Education Calendar!


She has presented the shorter version over the years, but THIS class is more in-depth and heartfelt, sharing a DEEPER knowledge of the materials presented, but more importantly, of the self.


This course will consist of 5 modules over the course of 5 months. It explores the dynamic relationship between philosophy and application methods in a body-oriented learning environment. EarthWalk Energy Medicine embraces and integrates the cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions of the healing process. This training unites the passionate, life-giving nature of the spirit with the art and craft of healing.

Yes, this is a commitment, but you and your clients are very worth the time it takes to practice YOUR medicine, and enhance any and all the work you do!
