Pneuma (Gk) means spirit | psyche (Gk) means soul
Pneuma is the ancient Greek word for spirit. This word was used by philosophers (Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, etc.) and spiritual leaders (Jesus, Philo of Alexandria, etc.) to speak of spirit. The Greek word for soul is psyche, the root of the word psychotherapist.

Pneumatherapy is the English-language name for an ancient healing regime, in the Sanskrit known as Atman Jiva Cikitasa (Spirit Soul Therapy). We have separated the various aspects of Atman Jiva Cikitasa into modules and separate certifications to teach the ancient lifestyle of healing, spirituality and sustainability.

The Pneumatherapist traverses and exceeds religions, s/he is comfortable in most traditions and works well when immersed in particular religious traditions. The Pneumatologist has an expanded knowledge about metaphysics and the laws of metaphysical nature.

Pneumatologists and Pneumatherapists have a good working knowledge of Human Anatomy, Sanskrit Terminology, Anatomy of the Soul, Ontology, the Nadis and Kundalini, Karma, Dharma, Reincarnation, Channeling Healing, and Mystical Energy, ancient Sutras and source documents behind these metaphysical disciplines, world religions, and more.

Pneumatologists are well-rounded souls who are in contact with their higher-selves and the energies that permeate our universe. They are trained by teachers who are not only highly developed in spirituality, but also have solid academic credentials in world religions and spirituality, obtained in Nepal, India, South Africa, Canada (from real, properly accredited universities, seminaries and colleges). Graduates have no less than 200 hours’ hands-on practical training in different techniques before they graduate. They have solid academic, theoretical and practical skills in pneumatology and pneumatherapy, and have studied the origins of spiritual traditions and techniques from ancient sources.

Knowledge, combined with practiced skill as a lifestyle, becomes wisdom. That is what we learn and teach, the wisdom of Pneumatology and skill of Pneumatherapy. 

What we learn is more than memorizing concepts, which is what academic courses teach. We learn also in soul-mind, and we learn new skills, which takes a little longer than memorizing information. 
We acquire deep insight, wisdom, and exceptional skills–and it takes more time. 
We mature in soul and spirit during the course. We work not only with metaphysical things, but challenging topics such as evaluating ethics, moral codes, world religions, and culturally conditioned thinking.

Become certified as a professional who practices the Spiritual Healing and Coaching Arts and Sciences.

Additional Professional Certifications:

Presuming all electives are chosen, the diploma comes with eight professional certifications shown above. If not completed during the course, you can always finish the theoretical modules online, in your own good time but all the practical hours will be done already.

Certified Coach in Mysticism

Life Coach

Sacred Sensuality Coach

If you already have certification as a Reiki Master, for example, you will have free time to elect additional courses for other specialties.

The course is successful because it is very well designed and the teachers are professionals with many years of experience. Learning must be fun and a pleasure –  our courses are just that. We have a wonderful time together. Most often, learning happens without the student even knowing it. What is required is to be present, and keep one’s mind on what is happening. 
There are different activities every day. We learn classroom-style lectures for two hours a day. The rest of the day, learning happens in clinics, excursions, and lab-style work. You will love it – just as we do.
