The Water Calming® Institute is dedicated to supporting grief, anxiety, and trauma healing through the professional education, research, and transcendence of Water Calming®. We offer training opportunities in order for people to utilize the personal development exercises and therapeutic process of Water Calming® in their individual and group practices.
The Water Calming® Institute was founded in March of 2020 by Dr. Dan Wilson. The inspiration was to create a platform for sharing this evidence-based, therapeutic modality that emphasizes the natural cycle of water in relation to human experience of sensations, perceptions, and emotions. Water Calming® was substantiated through his doctoral research involving 41 participants. The vision was to bridge the external world of sensory information with the internal world of introspection in order to create emotionally healing experiences. The results were profound.
The Water Calming® Institute is unique in that it has shifted to focusing on individual training sessions through each level of its entire program. Through the first level of Immersion, participants have the opportunity to experience the modality themselves and learn the theory and research of Water Calming®. The Practicum level guides participants through the process of working with clients. The third level is Teaching in which the participant prepares material and instructs a Master Practitioner the foundational aspects of the Water Calming® process. This includes the Water Calming® stages and ten consistent themes found in the research. Participants often have a similar vision to spread this nature-based, empirical approach throughout the world.
