Upcoming Classes

  • Cranial Sacral

    Level 1

    Laying the foundation; working from the heart 

    Date: Sept 11-13, 2020

    Location: Tinley Park

    This 3 day course introduces participants to scientific and emotional perspectives of the cranial system and to our intuitive approach to Cranial Sacral work. Using slides and dis-articulated specimens, the study of cranial anatomy includes an inspection of each individual bone, its movement potential in isolation and in unison with the other cranial bones and possible reflexive relationships with the body and mind.

    On an experiential level, emphasis is placed on centering techniques, cultivating our inner peace, and opening our intuitive self to interacting with our partner’s cranial system instinctively. Each day includes closely supervised hands-on practice with a partner to help deepen one’s understanding of the work. On the final day, techniques presented and practiced for each individual bone are brought together in a basic protocol that may be used as a basis upon which to introduce basic cranial work into one’s practice.


  • The Manifestation of Heaven on Earth

    Don Massat

    Date: Sept 17-20, 2020

    Location: TBA

    This 4-day Therapy Retreat Session focuses on the art of Manifestation by breaking the cycle of fear and reconstructing energetic signatures. Emotions will be processed from the subconscious with the use of clearing our field and cleansing our environment. The Heart/Mind will now join together with the assistance of Luminism to celebrate our journey into the “Energy of Creation”.Other topics will include Lightworker ascension symptoms and self healing; how to raise the vibration of the planet; and seeing the transparency of cult practices and modern day conspiracies.


  • Clearing the mind, opening the Heart

    Don Massat

    Date: Sept 24-27, 2020

    Location: TBA

    Through the use of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Dream Interpretation and Shamanic Counseling we will break down the core structure of Miasm and build the foundation of Luminism. Sacred journey Therapists will cross cultures to access collective wisdom on health and healing. Such similarities include an association between trance and altered states, emotions and defense mechanisms, belief and integrating new concepts, health and spirit. Rational medicine, exorcism and a shamanic approach to mental illness will be addressed.


  • Cranial Sacral Level 2

    Unwinding; The Heart and Sacrum  

    Date: Oct 9-11

    Location: Tinley Park

    This 3-day course is using the basic protocol learned in the level 1 course as a point of departure, this course builds upon the basic skills by introducing new possibilities for exploring relationships on physical and energetic levels. The concept of working from the heart will be explored as we approach the sacrum.
    Supine approaches to addressing the sacral and pelvic bones and muscles will be demonstrated and practiced. Palpation skills in facilitating unwinding will be shown in separate protocols. Generous classroom time is devoted to developing sensitivity to and practice of unwinding.


Don Massat

The Founder

Don Massat, the Founder of the Sacred Journey Institute, uses a “Visionary Approach” to Cranial Sacral Therapy to lay the foundation for Miasm Release Therapy and Sacred Journey Therapy. All available as continuing education for licensed massage therapists and bodyworkers. 

What SJI students say...

"…I would like to applaud Don Massat for his efforts in bringing about a continued awareness of the capabilities that physical beings possess when they open their hearts and trust the Universe. Your connection to the Universe offers you many opportunities to tap into sources of information that will provide you with answers to satisfy your curious mind. No question is too difficult to offer a response which will open doors to many possibilities and lead you to an expansive place which allows availability to everyone. Endless information keeps alive the desire to know, wonder and search in ways that may seem unconventional to most yet offers Truth – plain and simple."
