What is Reconnective Healing?

Reconnective Healing is an established non-touch energy healing approach that encompasses the benefits of all known techniques without any complicated steps, equipment, procedures or rituals. It is scientifically supported and known to facilitate significant advancement in all arenas of daily life. This includes our physical wellbeing, mental clarity, emotional inner peace and spiritual life progress! This is where we meet our essential self.

How does this compare to other energy healing work?

Reconnective Healing is comprised of a spectrum of frequencies that consists of energy, light and information.
Energy is everything we are made up of organically, our very essence and our actual physical body.
Light is the resonance and communication within these frequencies between the universe and us.
Information comes through the very interaction and entrainment with the energy and the light.
Reconnective Healing is an easy-to-learn, non-invasive healing approach that everyone can learn to do to help heal others and themselves. It is a comprehensive healing approach free of the rituals and techniques integral to the numerous energy healing modalities known today.

How many sessions are necessary before I notice anything?

It varies upon the person receiving the healing, but changes are occurring regardless. It is suggested that you experience between one to three sessions. Then let go and allow the healing to continue to transform.

Is Reconnective Healing a proven science?

Reconnective Healing has been confirmed and documented in more than a dozen international studies. And science continues to explore how it works. Scientists have found that when the Reconnective Healing frequencies entrain with our energy bodies we emit and vibrate at a higher and more coherent and harmonic level of light. This has been shown to restructure our DNA, resulting in measurably higher levels of bio-photonic light emission. Researcher and Stanford Professor Emeritus Dr. William Tiller says that when information carried through the Reconnective Healing frequencies is introduced, it creates coherence, order, and a greater harmony and balance within us.

Will Reconnective Healing cure my disease, problems, etc.?

Reconnective Healing isn’t a medical treatment nor is it meant to replace medical treatment. Therefore, it doesn’t “treat” or “cure” though many have reported what could be called “miraculous” changes in their well-being after just one session. We encourage people to forgo expectations and allow the frequencies to provide its healing to take place. If, in its presence, you allow yourself to come back into a more optimal state of balance and inner peace as many people do, then you do. As Dr. Eric Pearl explains, “Your healing may come in the form you anticipate. Or, it may come in a form you haven’t even dreamed of, one that the universe has designed specifically for you!” ?

What can I expect during a Reconnective Healing session? What’s the best way to prepare for it? What can I do to allow it to be most effective?

Everyone’s experience with Reconnective Healing is unique. Often healings are reported in an instant in just one session. Sometimes it takes a bit longer for a healing to unfold. As a general rule, the less you expect, the more you receive. Just wear comfortable clothes and socks as you’ll be removing your shoes.
Be in a relaxed atmosphere, lie on your back on a massage table or whatever other comfortable arrangements you’ve decided upon with your practitioner, close your eyes and notice. Just notice. Observe. Become both the observer and the observed. Withdraw your participatory thought process and simply observe when there’s something to notice, as well as when there’s nothing to notice. Lie there and let go, as if you simply had a little unexpected rest time.

Is Reconnective Healing like Reiki or Qigong?

Reiki and Qigong, just like other energy healing modalities, access various different subsets or portions of the energy field. Reconnective Healing accesses the entirety of the energy field, and brings you beyond into newer aspects of light and information. What does this mean to you? It means that the Reconnective Healing frequencies bring you all the gifts of all our known energy healing techniques and then brings you far beyond them. And this is a truly wonderful gift!

Is Reconnective Healing a religion? Is it meant to replace religion or God? What religious doctrine does this follow?

Reconnective Healing is not a religion nor is it intended to replace one. Reconnective Healing welcomes people of all religions as well as atheists and agnostics. We recognize that religion is a deeply personal decision and choice. Reconnective Healing is, however, spiritual as it acknowledges and respects the spiritual laws of the universe.

Does Reconnective Healing utilize crystals, statues, and/or other charms?

Reconnective Healing does not use healing objects or external devices such as crystals, wands, amulets, pendants, oils, aromas etc. The Reconnective Healing frequencies become you. As you become them. It is only you and your presence and awareness that is required for Reconnective Healing.

Have you ever had anyone who cannot do Reconnective Healing?

Facilitating Reconnective Healing is a choice, and not based on individual abilities, as everyone can learn to interact with the Frequencies of Reconnective Healing.

I haven’t taken the course but I’ve read the book and I am feeling something in my hands, plus people tell me I’m healing them. Am I doing RH?

Although reading the book, or watching some of our recorded interviews and presentations on youtube inspire this sudden awareness of the Reconnective Healing frequencies in us, it is not the same as facilitating a healing session where you can truly immerse yourself and your client in the Reconnective Healing field. Healings will happen anywhere the frequencies are present and engaged, but it is not you nor any one person that does the healing as such. We invite you to learn your full potential – join us on our Online Essentials Course and explore all Reconnective Healing brings into our lives.

Do I need to be healthy to be a healer?

The frequencies of Reconnective Healing are not dependent on our emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual state to effectively instill beneficial changes in others, nor do they seem to care about our sense of worthiness to help bring balance into our lives and the lives of others.


How Long Is The Course?

It’s a series of eight 1-hour instructional video chapters. We’ve broken down each chapter into segments to make it easy to follow, learn, and practice as you go along. You are always welcome to go back and rewatch previous chapters.

Where can I watch it? Does it expire? How quickly must I complete the course*?

The Portal/Level I is an online course that’s available wherever you have an Internet connection. Currently, there is no expiration. Watch it at your leisure at whatever pace is comfortable for you.
*The Online Essentials must be completed prior to attending the Live immersion: The Catalyst/Level II.

Can I take the Reconnective Healing® Online Essentials Course even if I don’t plan to attend the Reconnective Healing® training program?

Yes! The RH Online Essentials course allows you to accelerate your journey and offers you the invitation to become a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner.

Who should take this course?

We tend to draw a very diverse crowd. There are close to 100,000 practitioners trained in Reconnective Healing® worldwide. Approximately 25% of them are medical doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths, nurses, physical and massage therapists, psychologists, clergy and medical researchers. Maybe another 25% are comprised of energy healing practitioners and Master Teachers in the various energy healing fields including Reiki, Johrei, Jin Shin, Qi Gong, and many more. These people come to us to explore their options and ability to transcend their “techniques” and move into levels previously inaccessible.
The remaining approximately 50% are people who come with backgrounds seemingly unrelated to healing, including bankers, computer technicians, business executives, elected government officials, beauticians, social workers, entertainment industry professionals, etc. In other words, people of all ages and from all walks of life.

When will I feel a difference/change/benefit?

Some people report significant improvements immediately. Others recognize shifts unfolding more gradually over a period of time. It may be a day, a week, a month or more before someone allows themselves to recognize that they are experiencing a more harmonious lifestyle. There are no guarantees you will notice any change, as Reconnective Healing expands seamlessly. There is no need for anything to abruptly alter who you are. People simply and often glide into their shift. Sometimes, those near you will notice it and ask what you have been doing differently as they see you in a different way. There’s really no way of telling. It’s not a treatment nor does it “fix” you.

What will I feel/see?

The experience of interacting with the Reconnective Healing frequencies varies from person to person, and it’s not something that can be predicted. Yet, many report feeling physical sensations such as tingling and pulsating in their hands and energy waves moving gently through their bodies, as well as a sense of deep peace and calmness.

Are there any adverse side effects to Reconnective Healing?

There are no adverse side effects, dangers or risks associated with Reconnective Healing. This approach will not interfere with medical care or treatment, nor can it exacerbate any existing medical condition.

How will I know if I’m doing it correctly?

When it comes to Reconnective Healing, there is no right or wrong way of interacting with it, as it is not a technique or a modality. All that is required is your attention.

Will this reduce/replace my reliance on medical treatments, medicines, Etc.?

Although great health improvements are often observed when interacting with the Reconnective Healing frequencies, Reconnective Healing® is not a replacement for any medical treatment. Please do not stop taking prescribed medication or following through with medical treatments unless instructed to do so by your doctor.

I’m not interested in becoming a practitioner. Should I still take the course?

Absolutely! The Portal: Reconnective Healing Online Essentials Course has been designed to serve as a stand-alone program to help each student “jumpstart” a relationship with the Reconnective Healing frequencies and enjoy the many benefits this brings into your life and those around you.

After I complete the course, can I start healing others and myself? Have I become a Reconnective healer?

The Portal: Reconnective Healing Online Essentials Course is simply an introduction to art, science, and philosophy of Reconnective Healing®, and not a training program. Although you will be able to help yourself and your dear ones receive the Reconnective Healing frequencies and healing, you will need to participate in a Reconnective Healing® training program to become a Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner, the title our professional facilitators earn after they complete their in-person training. Thos who attend our in-person training programs have the choice to accept the standards and practices to become a professional Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner or simply incorporate Reconnective Healing into your daily life with family and friends.
You may notice, as you watch the program, that you, your environment, and even those around you may experience change and transformation. This is a common effect of interacting with the Reconnective Healing frequencies, and happens spontaneously as you explore your connection with this Energy, Light & Information®.

Can I get a Reconnective Healing session without taking the course?

Yes, absolutely! We encourage you to locate an authorized Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner . Visit our Practitioners Directory or send us an email info@TheReconnection.com
Reconnective Healing® may be received in-person and/or via distance equally as effectively. You may also choose to receive your Reconnection®. The Reconnection® is only available in-person.

Do I get a certificate after The Portal?

The Portal/Level I is informational and experiential to prepare you for the professional Live Immersion Weekend: The Catalyst/Level II. There is no certificate for our Online Level I Course as you do not become an authorized practitioner from this course. We look forward to seeing you in The Catalyst/Level II our Live Immersion: Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner Program. You will participate in advanced training and practice modules with concentrated table time, as well as, the foundations necessary to begin your practice. There will be an opportunity to accept the Terms and Agreements of being a Reconnective Healing Foundational Practitioner, and if accepted, you will receive your certificate.


How long is the program?

Each program lasts two days, and one follows the other. Reconnective Healing® is taught from about 9:00 AM Saturday and ends at about 7:00 PM Sunday, while The Reconnection® is taught from 9:00 AM Monday and ends at about 7:00 PM Tuesday.

Do I need to sign up for both programs at the same time?

It isn’t a requirement to sign up for both programs at the same time. You may choose to do Reconnective Healing® first and The Reconnection® at a later date. Yet, we find that students have a deeper satisfaction and throughly comprehensive grasp of both healing approaches wen they take both courses in the same san of days. This also accelerates their status as professional practitioners, as they can offer these services as soon as they get their certification.

Do I need to attend the entire course?

Yes. These courses will prepare you to become a Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner and/or a Reconnection®-Certified Practitioner. Your attendance is required for each full 2-day training session. You will be asked to sign in and out during break times to validate attendance.

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably and in layers as your body temperature may fluctuate during the course of the training programs. We suggest wearing socks and loafers or slip-ons versus sneakers/laced shoes. You will be removing your footwear often during the training program weekend.

What should I bring? Laptop? Notepad?

You will not need a laptop as all the training is done live. You may want to bring a pad and pencil to jot down questions. We collect the written questions and they are addressed throughout the program at predetermined times.

What will I be learning?

You’ll be learning many and various ways of Observing, Noticing and Experiencing Reconnective Healing® as a healing approach, and the very specific lines and points of Energy, Light and Information® when you train to offer The Reconnection®.

Why do I need to take the Online Essentials Course before attending the live training session?

Think of the Online Essentials Course as your “Beginners Guide” It’s all new concepts, and learning is done best at your own pace. There you will learn the basics of the science behind Reconnective Healing®, as well as the simple approach of feeling the frequencies.
The in-person Reconnective Healing® training program allows you entrain with the frequencies in an accelerated way, learn from the instructors, watch and share with fellow students. By practicing the approaches over and over, and defining your own sense of style. The feelings become more pronounced and evident. Also, here you receive the foundation of becoming a Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner.

When do I get certified as a practitioner? When can I start healing others?

Students who successfully complete all of the training and satisfy prerequisites** will receive an invitation to become a Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner to practice within the Standards of Practice and Policies of Dr. Eric Pearl and Reconnective Academy International.

• Have received a Reconnective Healing® session
• Agree to, and honor the Reconnective Healing® practitioner code as indicated on the Evaluation and Information form.

When are you coming to my city/country again?

There is no definitive cycle to when and where we run training events. It’s based upon demand and the various other program, webinar, and media schedules. When you have completed the Online Essentials Course, we encourage you to attend the next program wherever and whenever convenient.

Can I invite family and friends to come watch?

Who will be doing the training?

All in-person training is provided by Reconnective Academy International – the only official entity approved to offer these programs – and their International Instructors Team – the only instructors approved by Dr. Eric Pearl to teach Reconnective Healing® and The Reconnection®.

Can I get a session from Dr. Pearl?

Personal sessions might be arranged with Dr. Eric Pearl or Jillian Fleer if/when they are present at an in-person training program, although not common. However, they will be more than happy to chat, socialize, and answer questions throughout the program. 
You could also book a distance session with Dr Eric or Jillian Fleer prior/post program:
Book a RH Distance Session with Dr Eric or Jillian

What time can I make my flight back home on the last night of the program?

We strongly recommend that you stay overnight and depart on Monday at the earliest if you only attended the Reconnective Healing® training program, and Wednesday at the earliest if you also plan to attend The Reconnection® training program. This allows you to complete the training program in a relaxed frame of mind and assimilate the weekend in a more pleasing atmosphere with your fellow attendees. It also allows you to bond with like-minded people.

Does the price include meals?

To keep cost of the training program at a minimum we usually do not supply meals. We try to supply names of local vendors when possible. Lunchtimes tend to vary, so you might want to bring a small snack such as a protein bar or fruit which you can eat on a break.

Can I get Dr. Pearl and Jillian Fleer to sign my copy of their books?

Yes! If/when Dr. Pearl and Jillian Fleer are present at the Training Program, bring your books if you want to get them signed by Dr. Pearl and Jillian Fleer. Book signings will only be available at specific times.

What is the agenda for the training session?

This training program will cover the origins of Reconnective Healing®, its unique energy healing approach, its science-based background and how to access and utilize the frequencies as an energy healer. It will cover awareness moments, nuances, challenges, and suggested best practice on launching a successful Reconnective Healing® practice. There will be many opportunities to work with Reconnective Healing frequencies in self healing, one-on-one and even in group situations. We will also have various segments of Q & A. Agendas vary slightly depending on schedules. For updated agendas check the training program you plan to attend here.

Will I be healing anybody?

You will be practicing and ultimately be a catalyst of mini Reconnective Healing® sessions on fellow students.

Can I use my phone during the sessions? Can I take photos?

We ask you not to take photos during the program hours, as we want you to be fully present and an attentive observer. We also ask you to place your phones on mute as so not to disturb the class.
We respectfully request you to reserve taking photos to the time when we are taking official breaks throughout the two days.
As for photos, we ask for you to refrain from using a flash. We also ask if you post them on social media, that you tag us with #ReconnectiveHealing and/or @reconnectivehealing.

What can I do when we are not in the training session?

Explore and have fun! We’ve intentionally chosen some of our favorite cities in the world for you to discover the local sites, people, art, and cuisine.
Additionally, we are having more and more post-training session social events to share some downtime. These are great opportunities to talk and bond with your fellow students.  Check your email for some of the great sites and fun things to do in our host cities.

I can’t convince a friend to go with me. And I don’t travel much. Should I still go?

Of course! Don’t worry if you are coming alone. Many people do. Part of the training is to practice with different people each time so you will be connecting with a variety of people.

How do I know if I am good enough to be a Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner?

You are enough! Everyone can do this because it’s so simple. Don’t worry if how you facilitate a session looks different than the student next to you. No one style is “better” than anyone else’s. Everyone develops their own understanding of listening with a different sense.

I am following instructions but the client shows no registers (e.g. finger movement). What am I doing wrong?

You’re not doing anything wrong. Registers are simply visual indicators. Some clients can show none while others can show several at once. Others show registers so very slightly, that they may seem to be barely breathing. The visual registers may be interesting, yet let your attention be on listening with a different sense.

Will there be an exam/test?

No, there is not an exam or test to take at the end of the program. You will need to agree to the standards of practice if you wish to become a professional Reconnective Healing® Foundational Practitioner.

What should I charge for a session?

That’s up to you but fair exchange practices are discussed in the training program.

I have back/leg/joint/other medical issues. Will we be standing the entire time?

The training session is split between discussion topics and practice of exercises wherein you will be sitting about half the time and standing the other half. You will also take turns of being the practitioner and laying on the massage table as the client. Please plan accordingly.

Is there a discount if I purchase the Reconnective Healing® and The Reconnection® training programs separately, or must I purchase them together?

The greatest discount is available by registering for both programs at the same time. Yet, we do offer the Reconnective Healing® and The Reconnection® training courses separately.

I took the courses years ago, is there a discount for me to take it again?

Yes. Those who have taken the live Level l and Level ll (programs prior to 2024), can avail themselves to our special Alumni discount on any Reconnective Healing® and The Reconnection® training courses.

Can you help me get a roommate?

Unfortunately, this is something we cannot help with.

I am not fluent in English and I need a translator for the training program I want to sign on for. Can I bring one?

We recommend you check with Reconnective Academy International for rules, they change per program. Please visit their events page and email the event’s organizer
