The 2016-2017 Healer’s Program
THE TOM MONTE PROGRAM FOR HEALING
Living in Alignment with the Source of Love
What if you discovered that most of your beliefs about yourself are completely wrong and, even worse, self-limiting and often self-destructive? And what if, upon deeper introspection, you came upon Another You, living in an awakened state, in which truths about your unique powers and purpose were waiting to be discovered and utilized? And what if living in alignment with this Other You is the most effective way of experiencing all you hope for — love, joy, healing, success, and fulfillment? Wouldn’t the work of aligning with your Deeper Knowing be the single most important thing you could do with your time and energy?
The answer is most certainly yes!
The fact is, acting from an alignment with the Core of Your Being is the only way you can succeed at anything, whether it’s your work, career, healing, important relationships, casual relationships, even your hobbies. Whatever you do from your Deep Self, you do from love. And whatever you focus your love upon awakens and thrives — not because love is a form of sentimental coddling, but because love is the most concentrated power of the life force. Yes, love is an atmosphere in which all things open and animate. But it is also a life-giving laser, the tight beam that grows all it touches.
There are simple ways of living in alignment with the Awakened You, the Source of Love, that restore physical, emotional, and spiritual health; that reconnect you with your true power, wisdom, and guidance; that restore your heart, your clarity, and your soul’s direction.
At the Tom Monte Program for Healing — Living in Alignment with the Source of Love — you will learn effective approaches for coming back into direct connection with the most important relationship in your life, your relationship with the State of Unity living within you. You will learn to listen to the “Still Small Voice Within,” and feel the “Still Small Impulse” that flares in your solar plexus whenever you know your truth, or come face to face with “right opportunity,” “right motive,” “right decision,” and “right action.”
That Still Small Voice and that Still Small Impulse are only two of the ways that the Awakened Self communicates with you on a daily basis.
Never before has there been greater need to come into conscious connection with your own Deep Knowing. Confusion reigns in every important area of life, especially in all facets of healing and health care; every aspect of intimate relationship; in the search for and the discovery of your true vocation and right livelihood; and in your relationship with the Infinite. Experts are everywhere, but truth is the hardest commodity to come by.
Truth lives in you. All you need is a way to reach it.
In the Program for Healing, you will learn simple behaviors that align your consciousness with the Light Within You. Such an alignment stabilizes your mind, heart, and emotional life. It clarifies your inner life, and connects you to your deep wisdom, power, enthusiasm, and joy.
Living in alignment is a way of life that is based on deep listening to subtle events and shifts in awareness that occur inside you throughout the day. The Source of Love speaks to each of us every day, and in every situation. In the Program for Healing, you will learn how to clear your mind of so much meaningless interference and self-sabotaging activity in order to receive the guidance from the Inner You.
You will apply these practices to healing yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally. You will learn how to use them to create success in every area of your life.
Eight Weekends of Awakening
The program unfolds in eight weekend modules, one module per month, for eight months, beginning on the weekend of September 23, 24, and 25th. (See the dates, below.) Each module runs from Friday night, all day Saturday, and Sunday until 5 p.m. The program takes place at Moving Body Resources, located at 112 W. 27th Street in New York City, New York. A brief summary of each module, along with the dates, is provided below.
MODULE #1 September 23-25, 2016
Alignment is a way of life
If you have ever adopted a healing diet, or a new exercise regimen, you know the experience of evoking an undeniable healing response from your body. It’s as if the new diet or exercise program actually called forth a healing power from within you. That which is called forth is the Awakened Self, which sends forth a Healing Intelligence to every cell and electromagnetic pathway in your body.
In Module #1, you will learn the fundamental principles of alignment and begin to use these methods to experience your connection with the Awakened You, and the healing information It radiates. Healing begins from within. It starts by adopting behaviors that create alignment with the Healer inside of you. In this module, you will learn how to do that, and thus begin the process of restoring your health, vitality, and joy for living.
MODULE #2 October 14-16
A deeper alignment with the One Healer within you
In Module #2, we will explore even more deeply how food, certain activities, feeling states, and ways of thinking create alignment with your Awakened Self, and how in turn these behaviors lead to better health. You will deepen your understanding of alignment and learn how to recognize which behaviors support your connection to your Awakened Self, and which impede or block that connection.
You will begin to experience the peace, order, and deep relaxation that alignment creates. You will understand in an experiential way why alignment creates health.
MODULE #3 November 18-20
Alignment and your inner life
Left to its own devices, your mind would create endless confusion, chaos, sickness, and misery for you. There is an aspect of your mind — an inner judge or critic that I call the Hungry Thief — that opposes all your hopes, dreams, and ambitions. Most important, it seeks to prevent you from restoring your connection to the Light. The Hungry Thief also generates many false beliefs about yourself, about others, and about life. All of this leads to pessimism, efforts that end in failure, and despair.
Alignment silences the Hungry Thief. It clears away the negative thinking, anger, and fear. It helps you overcome depression.
By putting you in touch with the Awakened Self, it aligns you with the Source of Love and joy within you. It fills you with energy, optimism, and clarity. But it also restores your sense of purity, innocence, and right direction. Why? Because that which you are aligning with is pure, innocent, and living in the Light.
In short, alignment with the Awakened You transforms your mind and your heart. It heals you of habits and patterns that have long held you back. It is that power that causes you to change and evolve.
In Module #3, you will take the first steps to aligning with the Light of Being to experience a new harmony, enthusiasm, and power.
MODULE #4 December 9-11
Alignment and your freedom
Consciousness is layered. The surface layers — those beliefs and emotions that most often occupy your awareness — are dominated by false ideas about yourself and others. They are also dominated by varying degrees of stress, anxiety, and even fear. The central priorities of these upper layers of awareness are self-protection, self-promotion, and comfort.
Deeper within you, below the surface, are varying degrees of Unity, or states of being that are dominated by compassion, empathy, dignity, truth, gratitude and love. In the Unity, we experience our oneness with each other.
Within the layers of Unity is found the Other You, the Awakened Self, that is attempting to guide your life on a moment to moment basis.
Because we have been given free will, we have all been given a choice: Live on the surface of your awareness, and experience ongoing stress, anxiety, fear, and anger; or experience alignment with the deeper realms of Unity, where an Intelligence exists that can transform every aspect of our lives for the better.
In this module, we will use new and more powerful methods for creating alignment with the Unity and the Source of Love that lives within us all.
MODULE #5 January 13-15, 2017
Intimate Partnership, Neediness, and Freedom from the Illusion of Dependence
When you live in the belief that you are dependent on another person for love and happiness, you live in the illusion that you are empty inside. In such a state, real love is impossible. You are living to manipulate in order to get your needs met.
In this module, you will begin to see the difference between love and manipulation — one based on alignment with the Awakened You, the other based on fear, neediness, and the false belief that you are unloved and unlovable. This belief actually blocks you from recognizing how much you are loved, and how truly beautiful your life can be.
When you begin to experience alignment, you begin to experience love from within your own life. You will become better at receiving the love that is already flowing to you — in the form of personal and impersonal love; in the form of new opportunities; in the form of joy and grace from the Source of Love Itself.
MODULE #6 February 17-19
Intimate Partnership in Alignment: Loved, helped, encouraged to be fully you
The purpose of your intimate partnership is to help each other become your most fulfilled, most fully individuated selves — indeed, to become that which the Source of Love intends you to be. Intimate partnership is one of life’s most accelerated courses in true nature of love. It stretches you beyond your limited consciousness. And its rewards are among the greatest this earthly existence offers.
From the Inner Light, you naturally love. You are naturally kind, respectful, and courageous. You are unwaveringly honest. But most of all, you are free! Free to love! Free to be generous! Free of neediness! Free of being small, petty, vengeful, and violent. Free to experience alignment with All-That-Is-Good within you. Free to be all that you truly are!
MODULE #7 March 17-19
Alignment, Vocation, Calling, and Community
The Source of Love has a purpose for Itself, and it intends to fulfill Itself through you. That purpose is your vocare, your calling, the unique work that the Source has given you to do on this earth. No other work can bring you as much reward nor fulfillment as living the purpose that has been given only to you.
The success and fulfillment of your purpose depends on living in alignment with the Awakened You. In this module, you will discover your calling. You will learn that by living your calling, you are, in fact, walking in a state of deep listening — attuned to the Voice of Love that seeks to help you fulfill your purpose for living and experience all the rewards such fulfillment brings.
MODULE#8 April 7-9
Infinite You. One Life, One Love, One Consciousness
One by one, each of us eventually realizes that what we do in life is meaningful only insofar as it is an expression of love.
In life there are only two lines of communication: that which comes from your ego, Hungry Thief, and Defense — in other words, from your fears and false beliefs — or from the Source of Love within you. Life is the process by which we learn to choose one over the other. The Program for Healing teaches you the shortcut to the Right Choice.
On the Path of the Right Choice lies an awakening to the reality that, more and more, you are becoming one with the One Life, one with the One Consciousness, one with the One Love, One with the One Healer. Hence, ever increasing joy and fulfillment.

A Handful Of The Many Testimonials To The Program’s Success
“It’s difficult for me to put into words how much the Healer’s Program means to me. You brought me out of my deepest darkness. Within two months you healed me of my eating disorder and opened my heart to self-love. You and our group held me in compassion, understanding, and love. You helped me speak my truth. Thank you with all my heart for this experience.”
Abby, New York City, New York
“I started working with Tom after a horrible accident, that occurred the day after my wedding, which left me in bed and with lots of frustration and anger, most of which ended up being directed at my new husband. Through working with Tom, I not only dealt with that acute episode of anger, but I found some other skeletons in my closet as well, which not only had I not dealt with, I had never even acknowledged them. Seeing how much I had learned just from our private sessions, I wanted more and so I signed up for the healer’s course and it was an amazing experience. My husband finds me a changed woman. I feel an inner peace, though I am literally always surrounded by chaos (I work in an emergency room). Most amazingly, the conflicts in my life just seem to have diminished and become so much easier to handle and manage. I have grown in tolerance, and patience, and most importantly faith. The other night my husband and I were falling asleep and we could not remember our last big fight, which prior to Tom’s class and counseling were at least a biweekly occurrence. I feel that my heart has expanded, and that I have grown comfortable in my feminine strengths. I am living a life of faith, and no longer with fear. I am very grateful for this course, as it built a foundation of spiritual wisdom and practice, which has expanded my heart, and my ability to love.”
Felicia, New York City, New York
“I know mystical aspects are harder to talk about or share, perhaps people have to discover them, but so much of what goes on in a healing with Tom occurs in invisible and powerful layers that I feel that, more than anyone I have ever met, he has the finesse and communication skills to explore these subjects in conversation and to share his explorations with others. There’s something about the combination between conversation and the respectful approaching or invoking of the mysterious, even the miraculous, that is very very particular to Tom ways of teaching and counseling. A session with Tom is a concentrated dose of wisdom and light, there’s not a chance that you will be the same after you talk to him, via phone or in person. He’s a life changing experience, even if you only see him once.”
Angela, New York and Bogotá, Columbia.
“The Healers Program gave me tools for life to explore dualities and embrace them. I learned to honor truth and experience light, love and compassion, as well as my anger, sadness and grief with a curious, nonjudgmental spirit. Thanks to the group and Tom’s guidance and wisdom, my head gave in and my heart opened. It was a hands-on, intense and powerful program where I was able to help others, but for the first time I really learned to ask for and receive help myself.”
Andrew, Washington, D.C.
“Tom is the most sincere, dedicated, down to earth and knowledgeable person with regards to nutrition and healing approaches. He is gentle yet direct and puts each person at the forefront of the work. You feel the workshop is tailored for you — and it is! His method draws upon existing laws of the universe and bringing out from one’s own life the practical wisdom and truth to transform ones view of self. Add to that a great facilitator who builds trust beauty and support among the group. And add to that a person so knowledgeable about the body, food, energy, emotions and who ties it all together like a work of art. Then you have a heart centered exciting workshop that is priceless! I left the workshop with so much knowledge self discovery and a kind of tattoo of life etched in my heart and invisibly threaded with the others in the group. It will blow your mind and your cover. Simply the best!
Carol, New York City, New York
“Tom Monte’s Workshop for Healers is a journey into the depths of life itself. Not for the faint of heart, it is a rewarding, challenging, life changing method of facilitating profound transformation. Utilizing bioenergetics, macrobiotic theory, and Intuitive and Asian diagnosis and healing techniques, the Monte Method is a powerful tool for healers and anyone committed to transformational growth. Tom Monte is relentlessly dedicated to helping others, and I witnessed extraordinary shifts in myself and others during the months we spent together as a team. If you are ready for a revolution in your life and in your healing practice, this is unquestionably the place to be.”
“Beyond my above-posted testimonial, I want to add that this was an absolutely extraordinary experience. I got more from 4 weekends with Tom Monte than I have from any other course of study I’ve ever participated in. For those of you who are truly interested in healing work, this is one of the best investments you could possibly make in your practice and your life.
