Quantum Institute International—A Community of Healers: All Healing Is Self-Healing

Apr 29, 2016 07:25AM

Karen “Lucky” Thornton, founder of the Quantum Institute International for Holistic Health, with two locations in Honolulu, has established a community of healers. Not only do students come to Quantum to learn, many international healers come to share insights, knowledge and personal experiences from around the globe! Whether it’s the ancient art of qigong or healing with magnets, there is always a powerful abundance and variety of teachings to be shared.

In addition to classes and workshops, Lucky routinely holds potluck dinners to gather people together to break bread and talk story. These dinners often consist of recipes shared and developed by the students and instructors of Quantum Institute’s Nutritional Healing Consultant program. She also plans field trips to various locations across Oahu that promote health and well-being. During these outings, her students learn about different healing modalities and cultures that abound in Hawaii. Whether it’s a trip to Kahumana Organic Farm and Cafe, Chinatown or hosting a Full-Moon Healing Circle, Lucky brings a dynamic curriculum to all that are seeking to advance their knowledge and awareness.

Given the belief that all healing is self-healing, Lucky offers Tao Healing Sessions (group healing) for free on Thursday mornings from 9:45 to 11 a.m. It’s a mind/body training activity that enhances self-healing through meridian exercises, breathing, relaxation and meditation. Participants leave feeling refreshed and invigorated. Quantum also offers an energy healing session with one of the Quantum students from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays and Fridays.

Those interested in expanding their knowledge can easily sign up for one of Quantum’s full- certification programs or just a class to enhance their current field of interest. Either way, it’s a great way to become part of this vibrant community of healers.

Locations: 2636 Pamoa Rd. and 931 University Ave., in Honolulu. For more information, call 808-626-5087, email [email protected] or visit
