What Graduates Say ...

"I was already a massage therapist, Reiki Master, and student of Shamanism when I took Mary Tyrtle's program. I did so to fill in (healer's level) gaps that I hadnít learned yet, such as soul retrieval, depossession, and vibration healing. Little did I know that the most important classes were the Sovereignty School [Life Compass] classes. They truly are the foundation for all healing work.

Understanding yourself, your abilities and limits, and how to keep yourself whole is not only powerful but life changing. I learned so much in those classes that I now talk to most of my clients about them keeping their sovereignty. This is the only program Iíve seen that really prepares you to be able to do your best work not only for your clients but for yourself."

"I started Mary Tyrtle's [healer] program out of curiosity. It became a life-changing experience that turned into a profession. Her program is unique because of how she incorporates the teachings of highly respected sources...with her own considerable experience. Students get different perspectives and lots of guidance—but without dogma.

She is a warm, generous, quietly passionate, and highly dedicated teacher, and if you want a model of how to live a healthy, holistic, community-involved, and socially progressive life, you'll find her to be that, too. My fellow students quickly became a new community: I feel like I can call on anyone for assistance, and I made a couple of strong friendships that continue to grow."
