The Daselva School of Energy Healing – Code of Conduct


By undertaking this course you agree to uphold the teachings and reputation of Copal Daselva and the Daselva School of Energy Healing by engaging in appropriate behaviour, following all
guidelines, and operating in a safe and respectful manner inside the course, when representing the school, and when offering shamanic healings in a professional capacity.
Please ensure you read the following guidelines carefully, and raise any questions with the tutor either during class time or on a one to one basis.
What is Shamanic Energy Healing?
Shamanic Energy Healing is simply tapping into the innate ability that we all have to connect with the energy that is present all around and within us, and harnessing it to activate
our own or another beings capacity to move towards health and wholeness. It is used all over the world, throughout different traditions and cultures, and is not tied into any
philosophies or religious beliefs. The basis of all approaches to shamanic energy healing in any form is openness and respect for all approaches and belief systems. The practitioner is expected to embody this at all times, and not engage in any behaviour that could be seen as preaching, converting, or undermining any other approach or belief system. Shamanic Energy Healing is not a system designed for diagnosis of medical conditions, and is not to be used as such. A client should be encouraged to seek professional medical advice if required.
What is the Daselva approach to Shamanic Healing?
This course had been developed following years of personal study, and immersion is different cultures and traditions. The founder, Copal Daselva, has been privileged enough to work under the guidance of many highly skilled and developed teachers, and this course brings together some of their teachings as a unique program. As such it is carefully constructed to provide a framework for personal and professional development for the practitioner, as well as a safe and recognised practise for clients. It is therefore essential that elements that are not taught within this program are not introduced by the practitioner when delivering healings or representing the school. This includes the introduction of ideas associated with different approaches, for example entity possession. If you are a practitioner of a different healing modality or feel that other belief systems that you hold may impact upon your professional practise, please discuss this with Copal Daselva prior to commencing the course. Misrepresentation or manipulation of the teachings may result in your certificate being revoked, cancellation of your membership, and/or invalidation of your insurance. The school reserves the right to refuse to allow a student to
continue with their studies if they do not adhere to the teachings of the course throughout the course and their professional practise. The course material is not to be passed on or taught in other environments without the express permission of Copal Daselva.

Student and Practitioner Conduct
Throughout the course, and when delivering healings, you are expected to uphold certain standards of behaviour and operate in a professional and safe manner at all times. This includes:
● Alcohol & drug use: No intoxicating substances are to be used at any time. This includes alcohol, drugs, and substances that may be taken to ‘enhance’ the healing. Substances that alter perception can result in lack of alertness or effect judgement which can compromise the safety of the client.
● Verbal or physical aggression: No aggressive behaviour will be tolerated. If you are seen to be engaging in behaviour that is threatening, aggressive, or puts others at risk you will be asked to leave the course immediately. Your insurance requires that you behave in a professional manner, and if any threatening or violent behaviour is witnessed or reported when operating as a healer you certificate and insurance will likely be withdrawn.
● Discrimination: Throughout the course and professional practise no behaviour that is seen to be discriminating on any grounds including gender, disability, communication, religious beliefs, ethnicity, or age, will be tolerated.
● Sexual Conduct: The client/practitioner relationship is based upon very clear boundaries at all times, which includes not engaging in any sexualised behaviour or undertaking a sexual relationship with a client. If you feel an attraction towards a client that you feel may compromise the boundaries, you should refer them on to another practitioner. If a client expresses an attraction and a desire to engage in a relationship outside of the professional boundaries, you may also wish to refer them on.
● Physical contact: Throughout the course and your practise you will encounter situations where you will have physical contact with a client. It is important to follow the guidelines discussed in the course, and also to check in with a client how they feel throughout so that there is no scope for misinterpretation on either side.
● Communication: It is important to maintain clear open communication at all times. Do not offer medical diagnosis or expectations. It is important to remain aware that
people approaching you may be vulnerable, and to ensure that your behaviour and communication remains appropriate at all times.
● Personal Responsibility: As students and practitioners of Shamanic Energy Healing you are expected to take responsibility for your own mental and physical health and
wellbeing at all times. Personal challenges and illness may arise, and it is important that you remain aware of how this may affect your practise and make appropriate
adjustments and seek support for yourself, either through the school or other professionals.
● Health and Safety: Throughout the course and any environment you practise Shamanic Energy Healing in you are expected to take responsibility to ensure health and safety of yourself and your client, including being aware of any hazards (e.g. wiring, trip hazards, sharps bins if operating in a clinical environment), emergency exits, fire alarm protocol etc.
● Personal Conduct: As a student and practitioner you are a representative of the school, expected to behave in a manner that does not discredit or undermine the school or course.
● Remuneration: Students will not seek payment or other gain from practise whilst qualifying.
● Record Keeping: All client records and information is to be kept in a secure manner, and data protection guidelines followed.
Qualification Requirements:
All students are expected to complete the whole of the course, and free healing sessions as outlined by the tutor to a satisfactory level. Certification is at the schools discretion, and can be revoked at any time if the practitioner engages in a manner that brings the school into disrepute, undermines the teachings and ethos of the school, or doesn’t abide by the code of conduct.
