Program Description

Can energy healing really cure cancer? Is it possible for you to heal someone’s terminal illness with your bare hands? Is the Western medical community ready for a fundamental change in its approach to treatment? William Bengston, PhD, invites you to decide, by taking a journey with him into the mystery and power of hands-on healing.

Through lectures, discussions, hands-on practice, and periods for questions and answers, you will receive in-depth training in laying-on-of-hands techniques from Dr. Bengston’s unique Image Cycling™ , a method that produces tangible results in the laboratory and has been accessed for its healing potential.

You will explore:

  • Step-by-step instruction in Image Cycling and hands-on practice with fellow students, and in distance healing
  • Discussions about case studies of both humans and animals with a wide variety of health issues
  • Guided exercises in Cycling and treatment designed to help you experience the energy flow more directly
  • Charging surrogate materials for treating yourself or others, and how to hyper-accelerate your Image Cycling.

You will also receive training in ethics and informed consent. You will be empowered with core tools and knowledge that you can take away in order to use the method effectively at home.
