About Us

“In every community, there is work to be done.

In every nation, there are wounds to heal.

In every heart, there is the power to do it.”

― Marianne Williamson

The International College of Energy Healing is dedicated to the provision of high quality programs and courses for individuals wishing to develop energy healing and metaphysical practice. We opened our doors in 2011 as the International College of Energy Healing but our Founder and Principal, Dawn Kirkham has been teaching for over 30 years.

During this time she has been honoured to be part of so many people's journey.

We are committed to providing high quality holistic programs. Students can expect to be supported to achieve success by building competence in the subject being studied. Programs are well structured and combine theory and practice designed to incrementally build the knowledge, skills and confidence of the student. Programs are designed using adult learning principles and accommodate a range of learning styles.

Our tutors are all experienced in the modality they teach and provide a student centered, safe environment that supports learning.

Located on beautiful Vancouver Island the college has its home with Hidden Gem Metaphysical Shop in Langford, BC where it holds many of its programs and workshops.

The College has a vision to provide access to high class training wherever a student is. They provide opportunities for flexible learning through the provision of online and distance learning options for many of their programs and courses.
