FAQs for
Entering The Healing Temple™
THE TRAINING

We will add more FAQs as more come in, so if you have other questions, please contact Katherine.

1. How does the Application Process work?

  • Fill out and submit THE TRAINING Application.
  • I will review it personally, and get back to you within 48 hours, to set up a phone conversation.
  • Together, we’ll determine whether or not this Training is a good fit, for where you’re heading in your practice, as well as for the needs of Entering the Healing Temple.
  • If it’s not, we’ll either step away or we’ll map out what needs to happen, in order for “the fit” to emerge.
  • If it IS a fit, you’ll pay the $500 non-refundable deposit, and you’ll choose either the Full Pay or the Payment Plan.
  • Then... the opening of the Temple Gates.

2. How does THE TRAINING work?

We will be working together both in-person and online.

In-person: (Dates: To Be Announced,) we will share 4 full days together in the woods and on the shores of the beautiful, historic, Victorian seaport, Port Townsend, WA. In the spirit of Entering the Healing Temple, this will be a retreat in itself. You will receive a combination of experiential elements, and didactic downloads. During one of those days, you will experience a full Healing Temple. And you’ll have a chance to deeply connect with the other women who’ll be learning along with you. These in-person connections will become the web we all “lean into,” when THE TRAINING is over. 

Online: We will gather online, one week before you arrive in Port Townsend, to virtually “meet” one another, and to orient you to the next 3 months. Once you return home from Port Townsend, your training schedule will include 10 gatherings online, along with homework. Our final online gathering date: T.B.A. All gatherings will be on Wednesdays, 11:00-12:30 Pacific.


3. What will I be licensed to do?

You will be licensed to produce Entering the Healing Temple –  A Day of Sanctuary for Women in your community. You will have access to all the images, marketing templates and processes, as well as the administrative templates and processes required to put on a Healing Temple. 


4. Do I need to have attended a Healing Temple first, before taking this type of training?

Short answer: No, you do not need to have attended one. When you come to Port Townsend, you will experience a full Temple while you’re there.

Longer answer: The reason you don’t need to have attended a Healing Temple is that I am looking for women who are seasoned in their practice, who intuitively “get it:” that the form itself matches what you are looking for, in your own practice.  You have a sense of feeling “the call.” And you trust yourself, to take the leap: you just want a platform! 

(Of the women who’ve expressed early interest, three have never experienced a Temple. They just know. Other than that, five other early-interest women have been in varying staff positions; two have been Temple participants.) 


5. Do I need to know which practitioners I'll want to have work with me in my Temple, and what type of modalities I need to have, before coming to THE TRAINING?

No. In fact, it’s better if you don’t have practitioners all lined up: you will learn all about choosing practitioners and modalities during THE TRAINING.


6. What can be expected, re: making back my training investment?

With THE TRAINING, you will be able to make back your investment within 2 Temples. And that’s via the Temples, alone. Whatever income you generate via what you offer to women as follow-up to your Temples will, of course, help you make back your investment more quickly. 


7. Do you have a payment plan?

Yes. There is a $500 non-refundable deposit, payable upon acceptance into THE TRAINING.  We will discuss payment during our Application conversation, so that you can choose what works best for you (full pay, 2 installments or 3 installments). Tuition will range between ~$3400 and ~$4000. The Full Pay plan, paid within a week of acceptance into THE TRAINING, will save you the most; the installment plans will give you more time – all payments will be complete by a date T.B.A. You and Katherine will work out the details in your application phone call. 


8. Are you going to do another one next Spring?

Right now, I have no idea. But if this one is a wild success, you bet I will! So it really depends on who’s ready to let go of the trapeze, and fly into this first training. The question is, “Are you feeling the call?” Are you willing to trust your intuition, and allow things to fall into place, for you? (It’s an FAQ I ask myself, all the time.) 


9.  How will the housing piece work? Where will we stay?

Accommodations are not included in the licensing/training fee. That said, I’ve booked a beautiful Airbnb on the bluff, to house some of our training. It’s just 10 minutes from downtown Port Townsend. The first 5 women who want to share accommodations can reserve sleeping space there, to be right in the heart of it! [The total cost for 4 nights is $375, for a private room, queen-sized bed.] 
I will book a second Airbnb, if there is further interest in sharing housing.


10. Can I arrange my own housing?

Yes! You are welcome to arrange your own housing. Please note that Port Townsend is a “destination getaway,” and accommodations fill quickly at this time of year. I recommend that you book your reservations very soon. Everything in Port Townsend is within 10 minutes of everything else, so don’t worry too much about where you land.

11. How do I get to Port Townsend?

12. How will the food work?

Continental/light breakfasts, as well as all lunches are included. Fourth-generation energy and spiritual healer Marla Ilo is doing the food: she does a fabulous job of accommodating food sensitivities and allergies.

Dinners will be on your own. Here are some links to check:
