SIX STEPS TO CREATION
- Write your Biography text of 120 to 140 words in the language that your brochure will be printed in. See the Languages section for currently available languages.
- Choose one photo for your Biography profile, and two other photos for use inside the brochure. If you do not have any photos to use, you can choose from an approved selection in the Photo Gallery, which is available at no cost to BHS Practitioners.
- Optionally gather one or two brief testimonials from clients that you wish to show in your brochure. If you do not have any testimonials to include, you may choose from a selection of Barbara Brennan quotes or use a larger photo instead.
- Select your custom options and upload your text and photos via the Brochure Order page.
- Make payment via the online interface (PayPal / credit card) and await your custom BHS Practitioner brochure by email.
- Work with a local printer in your country to produce as many printed copies of the brochure as you require, or use the instructions available on the Printing Information page to order your brochures from an online printer such as Vistaprint.

Use this section to describe your BBSH/E training in a way that best profiles you.
The purpose of this brochure is to present yourself as a Brennan Healing Science Practitioner®. If you choose to include other credentials, they must be limited to those through which you have earned a degree or certification.
Please keep this text between 120 and 140 words, including your certifications if you wish to list those below the main biography text.
Please use discretion when choosing photos for your brochure. Since the concept of energy healing is new to many people, we want it to be portrayed as the professional respectful modality it is. Consider photos that depict your integrity as a Brennan Healing Science practitioner.
If you do not have photos to include in your brochure, there are pre-approved stock photos in the Gallery that you may choose from for your brochure and use free of charge.
Any photos you personally provide should be 300dpi quality, in .jpg .tif or .png format. Please only provide photos that you have the full rights to use, including permission from any models in the photos. Do not send unlicensed stock photography, found on the Internet for example, or images that you do not have explicit permission to use for promotional purposes.
