Healey Institute for Healers has a very simple mission, and that is to teach healers how to become the needed peaceful warriors of this age. We do this realising that every human being has a right to environmental safety, physical health, emotional happiness, mental peace, & spiritual wholeness. This mission is in effect raising the next generation of shamans, healers, rainbow warriors, and highly sensitive persons. HIH teaches everyone wishing to learn that to be a healer is not a fad, but a tremendous responsibility; reclaiming the traditions of old in a modern time so desperately seeking peace & justice. HIH believes vehemently that the healers of the world have an inextricable duty to the community and world in which they live. Guiding us are our core values of:

  • meeting anger with joyful awareness
  • confronting worry/fear/anxiety with courageous tenderness
  • fostering appreciation for local businesses, peaceful warriors, and practitioners
  • diligent dedication to a practice based in mindfulness
  • unconditional help and kindness for all beings


We believe that in order to actualize a more egalitarian and peaceful world, one must first look within, confront what is there, nurture the self, and then use what one has learned for the betterment of society. That is why our tagline is “LEARN MIND. BREATHE ACTION.” Because it takes a mindful healing practice, centered on the present moment via the breath, to create positive change through one’s actions. In this way we manifest health, facilitate healing, and share healing wisdom.

  1. I like you. You seem wonderful and authentic! I feel we are on parallel journeys. I would like to move in the direction of an integrated holistic health practice myself. My friend and I are starting with a reiki practice but I want it to be more someday. I also read Tarot and find it extremely useful in guiding people to investigate long hidden emotional and mental blocks. I also recognize the healing power of guided meditation, yoga, prayer, chanting, drumming, journaling, singing, and any form of creative expression that allows the individual to experience growth and freedom within his or her soul. The things that hold me back from pursuing this dream right now are all “practical” i.e. money, certifications, etc…I am reaching out to see if you have any advice for a newbie who’s a little afraid to take the leap, but certain of her direction!



    1. Oh my dear, we all have those ‘practical’ worries. The thing is that in this line of work to do it full time one really needs a certain level of cloat and credential in the community to gain “popularity.” However, I have found that if you take your time, do your research, i.e. target demographics and lend a helping hand (pun intended) things really flourish. My practice is still very modest, and I make ends meet with another job, but it’s my passion to one day develop this also to something more. With time, I know it will, and I know it for you as well. Namaste and hugs my dear.

  3. Hello, Derek. Thank you for stopping by and following my blog. I appreciate that, and have to say that you have an absolutely beautiful space right here, and your writing brings with it this sense of breath-taking energy.

  4. Derek,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read and follow my blog 🙂 I have read a few of your posts and I must say that you are very well spoken and articulate in your writing. Your illustrations are well placed and not at all overbearing. You are very inspirational and I love how you try to explain the details of what you are writing, to help the reader get inside the story and feel the emotion that you are trying to relay. As healers, we try to help others as much as we can through any available channel. You, my friend, are an amazing example of how we can use our gifts for the betterment of the world. As a newly attuned Reiki healer, I feel very blessed to have found your blog. Love and light, Jennifer ❤

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog Derek. I have read some of your poetry and had a look round your blog. A very passionate creative person in touch with the earth is lurking in there. You are young with, hopefully,plenty of time. I have less (maybe, who knows) but blogging is giving me the opportunity to express myself like I have never been able to before. Follow your way and all the best will follow you.

  6. So you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers Derek, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…


  7. I absolutely love your blog! Your posts are so uplifting and motivational and truly make me want to focus more on my spiritual health and well being. Looking forward to reading more! 🙂

    1. Spiritual health is so vital these days as we are constantly so busy, the spirit has very little “me-time.” We have to all, myself included, find a way to balance exercise/nutrition,sex/sleep, mental stimulation via readig/writing, and some sort of spiritual practice. Even if it is greeting the morning sun as we pour a cup of tea. One of my favourite sayings is, “Sipping a cup of tea, I stop the war.” I used to only think that this implied a peaceful mindful.moment so as to not cause conflict in the world, but now I also see that this can be also said for the inner wars we go through on a daily basis.

      1. What a fantastic quote! This is all so true. I have been bombarded lately with work, freelance writing projects, a family member being ill, studying for a certification exam for work, and it is really starting to burn me out! I definitely need to remember to take the time to unwind and maintain that balance. Stress not only affects the individual (inner war) but those around them when they are not present and relaxed (causing conflict with others).

        Thanks again for your beautiful words of motivation and inspiration! 🙂
