Rocky Mountain Institute of Healing Arts was what I referred to as a "massage school with heart" from 2001-2011. The Durango, CO massage and energy healing school has officially ceased operations.
I almost feel as if I'm writing an obit because I have so many good things to say about the school and all the people who were involved over the years. I (Rebecca Mauldin) founded RMIHA and had a feeling of great things to come. I had no idea!! From both professional and personal perspectives, owning the business offered me all the potential for growth I could have imagined. We had some really amazing teachers and the students and I learned tons from them. I could tell stories forever and maybe someday, we'll all get together for a grand reunion and do just that! Many of the students will be in my life forever. And if you feel you've lost connection and are reading this, add a comment and we'll reconnect! Massage education was and is a passion for me. I believe that body work and physical healing is an integral part of healing the whole of our lives, individually and collectively. So it only made sense to me to create an incredibly excellent massage school where students could learn the physical elements the science of massage in detail, but could also explore the spiritual and emotional dimensions. What a grand ride it has been.
Many people have asked why the school is closing. Basically, it's that I'm being called to new ventures. As fulfilling as RMIHA was, there are new things out there for me. Running RMIHA as the sole owner, took a huge investment of time and energy from me and it's now time to open that up for something else.
To all of you who've come to this post looking for RMIHA info, thanks for your interest. To those of you who've been a part of it all, much love and gratitude.
