Partner and President 
Marsha's Classes

For over 40 years, Marsha Craven has facilitated mind-body-spirit seminars. She is the originator of several energy based healing modalities that are amazingly effective.  Marsha is an inspired teacher and facilitator of the healing arts.  Her unique combination of extraordinary insight and innovation, compassion, humor, real life experience and fearless pursuit of excellence makes every moment of class time with Marsha a unique experience cherished by class participants.  Building on her innate gifts for healing, Marsha has studied and mastered many healing modalities,  incorporating only the most effective into her practice which includes private consultations, teaching and mentoring.  The modalities offered work with traditional allopathic healthcare to create an optimum healing environment.

For a three year period starting in 1978, Marsha had the privilege to work with two chiropractors, Dr. Thomas Faulkner, DC and Dr. Max Garten DO, DC in San Jose, CA. She was taught powerful techniques for working with the cranium, sacrum and vasomotor system, as well as the emotional aspects of the body.  She has attended cranial therapy workshops presented by Michael Shay, Ph.D.,  Hugh Milne, D.O., Etienne Peirsmen,  William Doreste, D.C., Dr. John Upledger, and others. She has incorporated her training with years of experience to form her own style of working with and teaching this technique.

Marsha is a pioneer in the world of connecting mind-body-spirit through innovative and effective healing modalities.  Marsha has this to say about “Matrix Healing Technique™ and Lightbody Connection™, her original works channeled  in the early 1980’s.  "I taught one seminar in the San Francisco Bay area; after which, I put the material on the shelf and did not teach it again until 2000.  Since then, I have taught these seminars several times and a growing number of practitioners find resonance with this work.

DNA Cell(f) Imagery™” and Communication evolved from my hypnotherapy program, “Cell(f) Command Therapy” which I began using in the mid-1980’s and began teaching in 1992.  Additional resources came from studying the work of individuals who have dedicated their lives to healing through integration of science, mind, body and spirit:  Lavona Stillman, PhD; Dr. Thomas Faulkner, DC; Dr. Max Garten, DC, ND; Robert V. Gerard, PhD; Vianna Stibal; Theresa Dale, PhD; Rupert Sheldrake, PhD and Rosalind Franklin, PhD.”

Marsha Craven is President of Healing Arts Connection, L.L.C., as well as its Education Director. Marsha’s unique qualifications for this work include Licensed Massage Therapist; Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist; Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist Examiner; Reiki Master/Teacher; DNA Practitioner/Instructor, and Ordained Reverend with the Universal Church of The Master, the oldest spiritualist church in America.

Spiritual Beliefs:  The myriad of cultures and spiritual orientations use different words to express an understanding of the miracle of consciousness or existence.  In this manual, we express this understanding with words and phrases like, “Mother-Father God, Creator of All That Is”, “Divine Source”, “Source”, “Spirit”, “Creator”, “Goddess”, “God”, and “Divine Consciousness.”  Participants are encouraged to use the words that fit best for them and those with whom they are working.
