Brennan Healing Science, created by NASA physicist Dr. Barbara Brennan, is about really living. I mean really living.
What it takes to arrive at that point can be a lot, but in the end, that is the greatest healing
If have the sinking feeling you are not living the life you were meant to live, then read on. Brennan Healing Science (BHS) combines solid hands-on healing techniques with solid psychological process work. It’s about making miracles happen and being present in this world while communicating with many others. How you get there is amazing.When I stepped through the door of my first BHS practitioner, Rebecca Ellens, I was nervous, excited, curious and filled with at inexplicable feeling of being in exactly the right place. I had seen Rebecca speak at a presentation and felt she was the positive, confident role model I needed. I was having chronic infections in my pelvic area and chronic problems with my life. I felt I had exhausted all of the options I could come up with to heal myself, and no drugs, herbs or homeopathy were helping. Rebecca had an air of infinite patience and genuine warmth. She nodded patiently as I expertly rattled on about the psychology of my family history and current problems.

Never breaking eye contact, she responded, “Well, CC, you have an intelligent mind, and a clear, cognitive understanding of your life.” I was deeply affected by those words, and I didn’t know why.Somehow, I had experienced so much more in that sentence. I heard, “Well CC, I see who you are and who you will become.
They start to believe they can have the life they want, that living in a joyful, connected way is possible
You are going to discover so much more than your mind. There is magic to be had and you are on the right track.” I’m not even sure if she had to say anything at all, because it was evident to me that this was a woman who had seen many sides of life and had come out ahead, come out herself. She resonated that feeling and I just knew that I too, would come out much the same way. Healing my infections would come slowly, sometimes in painful lessons of self care, but I was so inspired by our sessions, the magic Rebecca possessed and the unique and sacred dynamic of the healer-client relationship, that I signed up for the intensive, four year training program, The Barbara Brennan School of Healing (BBSH).The first week of school, something really struck me. Everyone was feeling. They were feeling a lot of emotions, and they were feeling them in front of me…loudly. I thought this was very rude. As someone who lived mostly spaced out, judging everyone quietly, I felt the blatant expression of their pain and anger – their humanity, totally invasive. But I was quickly taught that feeling your real feelings with a group’s support was a powerful healing process and I had better get on board with this human thing or I wouldn’t pass the year.Well, I always pass, so when a tragic event happened in my life later that year, I decided to give it a whirl and let out my grief in front of the group. I was sure they would all think I was crazy and weak, but they surprised me by holding me in the most powerful container of unconditional love and support I had ever experienced. Oh it felt so good, it was incredible, transformative and of course, healing. I felt a strength I had never experienced. There was no spiritual bypass here, this was a very real environment. Learning how to be yourself involves not just trying live your ideals, but being completely honest about where you are really at – anger, pain, weakness and all.As a healer, when I have a new client come in, my first priority is to help them to feel safe enough to go into their real feelings, as awful as they may feel, as horrible as they think they might be for having them. Forget the bullshit. If you are not truthful, it makes healing very difficult. This technique involves a lot of willingness and participation from the client. While there may be sessions that are just straight up energy healings, most sessions involve dialoguing and passing on tools to create pathways for the individual to further get to know themselves, their patterns, and to participate in their own healing process.I found over the next four years that the BBSH was dedicated to training their healers with a personal and experiential understanding of the healing process. We were groomed to be non-judgmental healers for our clients, no matter where they were in life. We had to pass personal development skills every year like: Contact, Life Pulse, Higher Self-Lower Self-Mask, Self-Tracking, Grounding, Witness-Asking-Experiencing, Surrender, The Wound, Transference and on and on. We were also required to work regularly with a healer/psychologist to deepen our process and experiential learning of the work. BBSH is very concerned with graduating responsible healers who not only have a lot of psychic skills and healing techniques, but who are grounded, actualized people. People who can not just access their psychic senses to perform healing techniques, but who can hold a safe, authentic healing space for the true essence and healing process of the client to emerge.The foundation of the psychological work is the Characterological Defenses. These are a combination of Pathwork, Core Energetics and Barbara Brennan’s energy skills. They are Schizoid, Oral, Masochist, Psychopath and Rigid. Don’t be scared off by the names! These defenses each have a wound and an energetic pattern/habitual defense structure that can be read intuitively and physically by the healer. The healer is then able to give an energetic healing response. For example, in the Psychopathic defense, a client will make the top of their energy field enormous, and the bottom deflates, they will be angry, powerful, and they will project their perception out of their 6th chakra. They are usually very angry about an injustice, betrayal, or deception (originating from early childhood) and feel they have the right answer. This is not a time for arguing, or appealing to the mental level, it’s a fight no one can win as someone in their psychopathic defense will always have another angle- the world is a battleground.A trained BHS practitioner will ground deeply into the earth by opening their first chakra, feel their own power, then make the outside of their auric field like Teflon, a very firm boundary, all the while honoring the place in the client that needs to be seen with respect and integrity. The healer must stay with themselves and their own integrity, see the client for who they really are, despite them being in rage. Its not always easy, but this in itself can cause a deep healing in the client. It may be the first time they are not rejected for being angry, or it may be the first time they are not able to engage someone else in their own controlling, confusing deception.Combining psych skills with psychic skills can be powerful. The client is affected cellularly, energetically, emotionally and mentally. These responses create an atmosphere of self-respect, something a person in the psychopathic defense must learn to possess. At this point, the client may begin to trust the healer and the environment is set for them to go into their deeper feelings of rejection or betrayal, early childhood trauma can be cleared, opening the space to receive more authentic love.Over time, the healer will work with the client in the psychopathic defense to teach them how to bring energy into the bottom of their field. They must connect with their inner authority and sense of belonging, ultimately taking responsibility for their anger, getting out of blame and coming into contact with others. Each characterology also has a positive expression. For the psychopathic defense it would be genuine leadership, charisma, power, a tremendous amount of energy and an extraordinary capacity for love.In that first session with Rebecca, I was in a Rigid defense. I was trying to sound perfect and smart and was afraid to be in my feelings and my true self. Rebecca met me at my intellect while holding an energetic healing response of Core Essence (divine within) and an open heart connected to the physical and creative energies (strong connection between the heart chakra and second chakra). She emanated self-love. It was so simple, but it somehow connected to my own Core Essence and potential on a subtle level, to the magic within.Brennan Healing Science is not just putting your hands on someone and running energy. It involves being so present and in contact with yourself, that you are able to be present and in contact with the client. From a place of love, you get in there with them. When this level of contact happens, fear dissolves and the divine steps in. Psychic abilities are magnified as you enter into altered space through a loving heart. It naturally opens up your chakras and High Sense Perception (HSP). Once the healer gets in that space, guides, angels and ascended masters will join in and co-create the healing (you could think of them as energies if you are not comfortable with those terms).After 4 years of being in such a strong learning template, the healer’s guide team will be familiar with the techniques and know when to guide you to do what. By now I am able to trance channel guides for extended periods of time, and often see them, although I prefer not to. The healing skills include: Chelation, Organ and Chakra Restructuring, Repairing Lines of Light, Spiritual Surgery, Cord Healings, Time Capsule (Past Life) Healing, Multidimensional Healing, Channeling, Hara and Core Star Healings and more! These techniques are based on the Four Dimensions of Humankind: Physical, Auric, Haric and Core Star. The Physical and Auric are dualistic while Hara (Intention) and Core Star (Essence) are oneness planes.Brennan Healing Science believes that all disease begins as a distortion of a belief system at the 7th level of the auric field, working its way down into the physical, blocking the creative impulse from the Core Star. So we cannot ignore the psychology of a client when working energetically. We work intimately with the levels of the field and the chakras. In Organ Restructuring we repair the organ on each level of the field, reconnecting energy lines, tuning into any limiting beliefs and clearing clogged energy. After a liver restructuring clients can experience physical symptoms of detox. The ability to sense and work on all levels of the field is an important foundation for all physical healing work, and can take years of practice. Along with guidance, it makes it possible to work with cancer, tumors, broken bones and most any illness. A Time Capsule Healing deals with frozen time conglomerates. However, there is no need to label whether a time conglomerate is from this life, a past life (if you believe in such things) or a fantasy, the release of the energy creates massive healings all the same. Life-changing emotional releases occur.In Spiritual Surgery, we open up and allow a guide(s) on the 5th level to come into our being and perform etheric surgery. We are trained to shift our vibrational rate to align with energies on that plane. Its an amazing experience of surrender to Divine Will and takes an extraordinary amount of grounding, trust and positive intention. I actually fell down the first time I tried to do it because I couldn’t maintain the vibration. Eventually, after a lot of surrender work, I was able to pull it off! In a Hara Healing we infuse an intention into your “hara line.”The hara line connects you from the spiritual planes down to the center of the earth, and the main portion runs through the center of your body. It is a place of non-dualistic intention that is strong, and it takes all of fourth year to fully develop this healing skill, although we practice the haric dimension all four years. And finally Core Essence, the divine spark in all of us that brings us into blissful individuation and oneness. We bring Core Essence into the Hara Healings to create a divinely inspired intention, and an everlasting connection with your true self.For clients with medical problems, all of these techniques can be considered serious healing tools. Healers are required to study college level anatomy and physiology and there are three additional AP courses they can take should they want to delve deeper into the connection between the physical and energetic bodies. Each year medical experts give 10 lectures on the efficacy of energy healing with medicine (Healing, Medicine and Disease). Some topics have included eating disorders, diabetes, naturopathy, heart disease, and cancer. Healers are required to pass the course Integrative Care, which deals with specific diseases and their treatments. For example we are taught an energy healing protocol for dealing with clients going through chemotherapy. We also learn strict professional boundaries and ethics. On staff there are doctors, nurses, naturopaths, artists, accountants, psychologists, acupuncturists, teachers, etc. – all of them healers. Brennan Healing Science is considered complimentary medicine, to be used with respect to all other medical and healing traditions.It took me two years to heal my chronic pelvic infections. They healed not just on the healing table, although we had done so much preliminary work there, but at our second year ceremony. I had a vision of leading a very sexy dance and second year was the time to really get your life back and let your light shine. I was coming out of the dark and living as the artist I was. So, I took on the job of actualizing my vision and choreographed this very sexy dance. I rehearsed with my dedicated dancers every free moment and when we went on, in front of the whole school (about 450 people including teachers, teacher trainees and Barbara), we ROCKED it!Although I had a history of dance that spanned my lifetime, I had never let my true sensual essence be seen full on, nor let myself be the leader I had always dreamed of. Well, I let it rip, the dancers killed, the teachers were screaming, the men were hooting, I moved a huge amount of energy and by the end of that dance, my infection was gone. I had successfully connected my heart and second chakras (which is what the dance was about!), a true healing for the Rigid defense. I was so altered and freaked out afterwards, I had to have two friends hold my feet to prevent me from flying out of my body (Schizoid defense-another one of my favorites)! So, instant healings do happen, but sometimes as a result of a process. As a healer I encourage my clients to step out and live the life of which they secretly dream. The work I do on the table creates the template for the client to take action in the world.To me, Brennan Healing Science is just incredible. I have seen miracles of people essentially claiming themselves and their life, healing physical, emotional and psychological problems beyond their expectations. When people connect to the deepest part of themselves and begin to feel how beautiful they are, they start to believe they have the power to heal themselves. They start to believe they can have the life they want, that living in a joyful, connected way is possible. They see a life they never knew could exist for them. They stop participating in negative patterns, putting up with abusive behavior and start believing in themselves. This is the foundation for miracles. New jobs come in, new loves, new houses or old situations transform into healthy expressions of their highest good. Sicknesses heal. I’ve seen people heal cancer, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems, heart problems, digestive disorders and on and on. It’s hard to describe how inspiring it is to witness and be a part of another’s healing process.What I felt in my first session was that I was so seen for my true self that I had no choice but to actually be it. What it takes to arrive at that point can be a lot, but in the end, that is the greatest healing. To be seen in our essence, our true self, the potential of that true self and to be loved for all the things we are not: our mask, our defense and our shadow. Dr. Barbara Brennan has created a technique that incorporates all of who you are and are meant to be. It is an extraordinary learning process, invoking the richness of your being, the creative possibilities of life, the joy and pain of relationship, and the miracle of healing.I could write a book about it, but luckily Barbara has already written two, Hands of Light and Light Emerging, and she will be coming out with a third soon. If you are interested in more of the scientific studies behind the work, Hands of Light does a good job of explaining it. She also has a series of channeled books called Seeds of the Spirit. There are now certificate programs in Germany and Japan as well as Miami, FL. In Miami you can get a Bachelors of Healing Science, as well as continue your studies with a teacher training program and an advanced psychological process and leadership program called Brennan Integration Practitioner (BIP)/Supervision Training (STP).My own practice is based in Brennan Healing Science, but it is an ever-evolving expression of who I am and who my clients are. I continue to learn new techniques, sharpen the old ones, and study with a supervising healer. Most importantly I continually challenge myself through the work and through life, to deepen my understanding of living in my heart.
