This scholarship fund has been set up to honour two very special women who have contributed much to Healing Touch in Australia and to the Australian Foundation for Healing Touch Inc (AFHTI).
Janet Mentgen RN; BSN; HNC; CHTP/I
Janet was the founder of the Healing Touch Program and has contributed much to the development of Healing Touch in Australia. She first visited Australia in 1994 to instruct the first Healing Touch Level 4 class to be held in Australia. Janet made the journey again in 1995 to teach the first Levels 5 and 6 classes in beautiful Byron Bay. In 1996 Janet taught the first Advanced Practice in Australia and returned again in 2000 and 2002.
Janet contributed much more than teaching classes in her support for AFHTI and our endeavours.
She made her transition in 2005, and her work continues to expand.
Hazel Brandreth RN; CHTP/I
Hazel was one of the first Certified Healing Touch Practitioners in Australia and has been a vital part of the development of Healing Touch within Australia. She always attended the annual Gatherings where her wise counsel was often sought. Hazel was a part of the Council of AFHTI since the first meeting was called in 1997, and was also the newsletter editor for a number of years until the beginning of 2004. Despite ill health, Hazel continued to support AFHTI in whatever ways she could. She made her transition in 2004.
The funds from this scholarship are used to support our members in their personal and professional development. AFHTI donates an amount from each Healing Touch course fee to this fund.
