In 2005, he attended WhiteWinds Institute of Integrative Energetic Medicine, founded in 1997 by Fernand Poulin. There he earned a certificate of completion which consists of 500 hours of class studies, practicum, supervision and evaluation, and clinical work in the arts and science of Integrative Energetic Medicine. In 2008 he completed the Second Year Proficiency Training Program at WhiteWinds.
Stan was an assistant to Dr. Poulin at White Winds in 2010 and 2011 for the first year Sacred Passages year long program.
In his Energy Healing, Stan uses a genuine "Whole Body" approach; addressing physical, mental and sometime emotional issues in the body by exploring the energetic field that surrounds the body, as well as the energies that flow through the body. This all-encompassing practice incorporates balancing of the fields, chakra work, and some Cranio-Sacral techniques. Together, the client and practitioner explore the energetic source of a stressor that can create tensions/pains in the body, where it is held in the physical body, thus discovering the energetic "medicine" that brings relief and correction for the body.
"I have done lots and lots of psychotherapy and other healing, including various types of body work. I've had 4 individual sessions with Stan and attended a 6 hour group healing workshop. A lot has really moved for me, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. After working with Stan, my psycho-spiritual progress has rocketed and it is very exciting to be moving through things so fast. If you feel you are ready for this type of work, I highly recommend Stan." ~D. M., Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist
