The Emotional Clearing Certification Program

Acquire the tools and training to start working as a professional Certified Emotional Clearing Facilitator. This cutting-edge guided inner-process work will become more and more in demand as consciousness is raised about the importance of working with the emotions.

You can arrange your new practice as you need. You may be aiming to make a full-time career change to a humanistic occupation more in line with the journey of self-discovery on which you are traveling. The program will support you fully in this goal.

You may already be a practicing therapist, and desire to add this powerful feeling-based modality to your repertoire of skills. The program accommodates both beginner therapists and those already with a practice. It has been found that working therapists, while already possessing certain skills, need the full program to activate new Right-Brain skills required for Emotional Clearing practice.

These skills may also be applied as an adjunct to other helping professions such as teaching or nursing. The program is structured as a training in professional client work, but persons not desiring to work with clients, and seeking an intensive in Emotional Clearing are also welcome to participate.


Program Description

The training meets on a weekday afternoon US Eastern Time for 8 consecutive weeks. The day of the week and time are flexible and can be adjusted to accomodate individual needs. The training consists of a weekly 2 to 2 1/2 hour Skype meeting with John and the current training group; an extensive written training manual; recorded mp3 discussions and group inductions by John; and recorded counseling sessions for study. In addition, you will be participating in 3 practice intern sessions per week.

Trainings are ongoing, and start when we have a group. If you are interested, let us know and we will notify you when a group is ready to begin. We will find a start date acceptable for everyone. These groups are small, ranging from 2 to 6 participants.

Total time required for the training is estimated at 10 hours per week, for 8 weeks, for a total of 80 hours.

Weekly Hours Breakdown:

Skype meeting: 2 to 2 1/2

Manual study: 1

Recorded discussion and group induction: 1 1/2

Recorded sample counseling session: 1

3 Intern sessions: 4

No traveling is required; we will convene via group conference call on Skype. You can be located anywhere on the planet. We will adjust meeting times to accomodate everyone.

The total cost of the program is $950.

John personally leads the entire training with occasional assistance from other graduate Emotional Clearing Facilitators.

Previous training, academic degrees, or other professional credentials are not required for acceptance or success in the program. A strong motivation to do the work, natural aptitude, considerable life experience, and/or a solid spiritual practice are more relevant. Careful study of Emotional Clearing by John Ruskan (Random House 2000 hardcover edition or R. Wyler & Co. 2003 paperback edition) is required for training.



Between training weekends you will give and receive Emotional Clearing sessions with other interns and clients. You will not only be undergoing training but the sessions you receive will provide a huge boost to your personal process. You can expect to be involved with a minimum of three sessions per week for eight weeks, for a total of 24 sessions:

8 Emotional Clearing sessions giving to an intern (minimum)
8 Emotional Clearing sessions receiving from an intern (minimum)
8 Emotional Clearing sessions giving to an outside client (minimum)

Interns are encouraged to take part in client work and exchange therapy sessions with each other beyond the minimum requirement to enhance skills and personal growth; this is a valuable opportunity that should not be missed.

Interns are strongly encouraged to maintain a dedicated personal practice at home during the entire internship period. Network email contact with other interns and John will provide the support that can be vital to maintain the practice and feedback for getting past any blocks that may occur. Experiencing a personal practice with such support is invaluable in training, not only for growth, but because the therapist will be acting as the support for clients who will similarly be encouraged to maintain a dedicated personal practice while undergoing counseling.



Trainings take place via Skype - no traveling is required. It has been found that working long-distance on Skype, while somewhat different from in-person work, is without question equally effective, and offers enormous flexibility and convenience that works well with this program; the energetic transmission that is the essence of Emotional Clearing work is not limited by space. The dramatically higher audio quality of Skype over telephone conferencing plays an important part in the success of Skype for trainings.

The conferencing meetings themselves are intimate, and you will soon lose any apprehension you might have about not being there "in person." Photos of all participants are posted to provide a visual link, and we quickly get to know each other. Since our groups are small, and you continue to work with each other during the intern program, a genuine bonding occurs. This bonding can be extended into permanent professional relationships with fellow interns.

Much time during the training is spent in groups of two or three, practicing with each other what has just been covered. This is easily accomplished by shifting to other "rooms" where only the two or three participants are present, except for John or an assistant. After the exercise is complete, everyone again assembles in the main room for discussion and feedback.

We do not usually use Skype video. It complicates things, requires additional power, and has been a problem in the past. Video is not required for our work.

Upon successful completion, you become a Certified Emotional Clearing Facilitator (CECF), with the right to advertise with the Emotional Clearing logo and to conduct individual sessions within the legal framework for which you are qualified in your state. CECF certification does not satisfy any state requirement for licensing, although at present anyone may work in most states without licensing as a counselor or facilitator. All CECF's are required to know the law in their own state and to strictly abide by it.

Participation in the program does not guarantee certification, but only rarely will a participant be denied certification. If certification is withheld, the participant will be advised of the reason. Participants will not be allowed to continue in the program if their participation is in any way disruptive as determined by John. There will be no refund for any programs taken or not taken.

Certification may be revoked at any time for any reason including behavior that may legally jeopardize The Institute for Emotional Clearing, or for gross incompetence or misconduct.



Currently, no ceu's are available for the program.
