NHC Education Philosophy

To access the inner knowledge of healing within the body on the physical level, it is essential to understand that there is an emotional, mental and spiritual link to whatever the physical challenge (disease or issue) may be. One of the greatest mistakes made in the healing process, in our philosophy, is to place self-blame and self-judgments on that issue and the emotional, mental and spiritual links that it resides in. All physical disease is there to get one's attention to an issue that needs to be re-evaluated.

As an example: If a child gets a cold every year at the beginning of October, so that the mother must stay home from parent/teacher conferences, you can suspect that there is an emotional, mental and spiritual cause for the cold. The first step in educating yourself to be healthy is to have an awareness of what has happened prior to the illness, or what is coming up to be avoided. Be free of judgment and putting a person into a generalized pattern of behavior. Each person with a particular disease has a different (yes - maybe slightly similar) reason for the illness.

Distinguishing the emotional and mental levels of education and healing seems to be more of a challenge for some people. At the NHC, we explore the emotional response patterns to situations, events, words, people and one's perception of them. Each emotional response is based on a past experience dating from conception to around the age of eight. Once again, it is requested that the person be free of self-judgment or blame when looking at the issue. Think about how many people really act out of spite. Usually, they are doing the best that they can with the upbringing and experiences that they had. If they are acting out of spite, their learned behavior pattern needs to be re-educated. For the individual seeking to educate and heal himself, it is important to look at the interconnectedness to the mental, spiritual and emotional levels when re-educating and healing the issue.

The mental aspect of the healing and education process is each word that we speak, and each thought that we have. Yes, this may seem a lot to consider. Yet, even the music, television programming and literature that we choose is a manifestation of one's healing and education process. How many people have said, "Oh, he's a pain in the neck" and they find that they are the one who always have stiff necks? For starters, be aware of the words that are said and the consequences of those words.

The spiritual aspect of the healing and education process is based on your belief systems - not your religious choices. The belief systems that you were exposed to and incorporated into your life can be altered for something more appropriate at any stage in life. For example: At age eight, you needed someone to walk you across the street. At age 35, do you need someone to travel with you on vacation to a far off country? No. It may be nice to have company, but it is no longer necessary for you to have someone see you safely to a place of unknown origin or where there are strange people or even some dangerous (new) things you do not understand. This is the need for change of belief systems. Yet, there are people that will not go on vacation by themselves - it's too scary, frightening. Unchanged, inappropriate belief systems are many times the source of our fears, limitations, and inability to succeed. These spiritual issues are interconnected to the emotional, mental and physical parts of you.

The Northeast Holistic Center is based on the philosophies and teachings of Caroline Bayard, the founder and director. Her growth and educational path brought her to develop the NHC and the course of study and healing modality of Holistic Synergy™. Holistic Synergy incorporates the growth, education and healing of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of a person through energywork. The means of expressing this energywork has been incorporated in all of the courses that are taught at the NHC. The simplest and easiest form of Holistic Synergy energy work is hands-on energy work on the energy field of the physical body. It is a gentle, non-invasive, relaxing experience that assists the individual to open up to healing and growth. The NHC presents two certification programs utilizing Holistic Synergy as the basis for its course of study - Holistic Practitioner Certification and Holistic Synergy Energy Worker Certification.
