ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY – Registration Deadline – March 12!

Explore, grow, and interact with a diverse group of learners. The Regression Hypnosis graduate certificate is one of the most in-depth programs in the country. Students receive their training through a hybrid model — learning is completed both online and through a four-day face-to-face residential in Virginia Beach, VA. Additionally, students receive practice in this modality of healing through completing a series of practicums and practices sessions with volunteer participants. Graduates from this program are well versed in all aspects of regression hypnosis and have the opportunity to open their own practice when they complete all three levels. Accepting applications now for the April 2018 Level 1 cohort.

The Prison Program just sent 54 books (mostly in Spanish) to Dolly Zeligman, our A.R.E. Puerto Rico Center contact and Dolly will distribute the books to eight Puerto Rican prisons. According to Dolly, as of January 17, “We are getting back, little by little – still many places without power and some also without water. Yesterday we re-started our weekly meetings. We are all excited to continue working with the Prison Program. When the books arrive, we’ll deliver them directly to the Department of Correctional Services.” Visit for more information about this valuable program!
