In the 12-page introduction to the manual, Robin Casarjian offers personal suggestions to the reader on how to approach facilitating a Houses of Healing course. She encourages the reader to use the material in whatever ways suit him or her best.
In the body of the manual, she outlines 13 weekly sessions, explaining concepts and exercises and relating them to the text of Houses of Healing. Included with each week’s lessons are “Self Work” sheets that can be duplicated for the participants in the course. Copyright 2013.
