ThetaHealing® Instructors Seminars in Russia,
with Vianna Stibal

Vianna Guy Natalia Craig 2016

The organisation of an event, or series of seminars, is a big undertaking. So whenever Vianna visits Russia to deliver ThetaHealing® Instructors seminars, we do our best to provide a really good service to THInK, to Vianna, and to you as an attendee to these seminars. The way in which we provide this service, is determined by many factors, by past experience, and also what we determine will be the needs for each attendee who comes to these seminars.
The venues for seminars, are booked well in advance of her visit. Sometimes up to 18 months before she arrives. From time to time the venues we select are really busy, which can result in the seminars being run in more than one venue.
We carefully consider running supporting practitioner seminars, as sometimes a ThetaHealer® might want to complete an instructors seminar, but does not have the required practitioners seminar. In this way, ThetaHealers get the opportunity to maximise their time spent at the events we host.

2014 - The 1st visit to Russia

For the inaugural visit by Vianna Stibal to Russia, we selected a training room that well exceeded the needs for those ThetaHealers who would attend the seminars, meet Vianna, and learn more about ThetaHealing®. The room itself was located in a hotel where we knew from the beginning that we would have several challenges to overcome.
As a hosting team we knew this would be the best option, however we had to consider :

  • the hotel was a 25 minute walk away from the nearest Metro (underground) railway station
  • the hotel had 1 coffee bar, and 1 main restaurant
  • there were no alternative places to eat or get food, within a 15 minute walk from the hotel
  • the hotel had sufficient rooms available to allow everyone who was attending the seminars, to stay at the hotel

We took a decision, based on the location of the hotel, to provide a free lunch to every attendee of the seminars, at our cost. Our decision was based on the fact that we wanted to give all the attendees, the most amount of time to listen and hear Vianna speaking about ThetaHealing®.
If we did not provide the buffet lunch, then we would have had problems with people taking
between 1.5 to 2 hours for their lunches, thus reducing the total amount of time they would
get to listen to Vianna, and take part in the seminars.

2015 - Vianna's return to Russia

The second year Vianna visited Russia we changed location to a more central and accessible venue.
As there were more options in terms of places to eat within the hotel and the surrounding area, we did not provide lunch to the attendees. We did however, provide the coffee break (with snacks) as we had done in the first year. This hotel again had plenty of rooms for ThetaHealers who were attending the seminars, to stay in.

2016 - Vianna's most recent visit to Russia

The third year Vianna visited Russia we took a bold step to host 8 seminars across 16 days, and also run a themed masked ball. Due to the dates we were allocated, we had to schedule the events to occur at two different hotels. Both hotels had sufficient places nearby for ThetaHealers to go have lunch at, so again we did not provide buffet lunches. We did however negotiate with the main hotel, that attendees could get discounted rates for the lunches and dinners. We provided a really grand coffee break with some great snacks during the instructors seminars.
As with the previous two years, this hotel had sufficient rooms available for ThetaHealers to
stay in, and we negotiated a discounted (promo code) rate with this hotel.
We hosted only the Advanced DNA Instructors seminar in the second hotel, and all of the other
seminars we hosted in the main hotel.

In 2016 we hosted 1 evening event and 8 multi-day seminars :

  • 5-8 September 2016 - Basic DNA Instructors
  • 10-12 September 2016 - Advanced DNA Instructors
  • 14-15 September 2016 - Dig Deeper Instructors
  • 16-17 September 2016 - Manifesting & Abundance Instructors
  • 6-8 September 2016 - Dig Deeper Practitioners
  • 9-10 September 2016 - Manifesting & Abundance Practitioners
  • 13-18 September 2016 - Planes of Existence Practitioners
  • 19-20 September 2016 - 1st time in the World - Growing your Relationships (Part 1)
  • 18 September 2016 - First ever ThetaHealing® Masked Ball

More about the work and effort put into hosting Vianna.

To manage the events and seminars, we plan everything well in advance, and do our best to make
sure that we have enough of everything available for attendees for the seminars.
This determines how we take payments from attendees for each of the events.

To give you an example. When we print the manuals for the seminars, we need at least 4 working
days to print enough manuals, in colour, and of a high quality print, for all the attendees.
To process certificates, we need between 24 to 36 hours to process the names and print the
certificates. With the large interest in Russia to meet and hear Vianna speaking about
ThetaHealing®, we normally have more than 100 people in each of the instructors seminars.
There is an additional requirement to collate the certificates to the waivers and contracts,
and this also takes some time.

One of the reasons we don't accept cash payments is that this would allow too many people to
come to the seminars, and pay at the last minute. This creates a problem for us, as there is
not enough time for printing the manuals, printing the certificates, and making sure that we
have enough of every item that we need to hand out to each attendee for the seminars.

In 2016, we had nearly 3 times the amount of certificates to hand out, compared with 2014.
There were only 5 certificate queries, where a mistake had been made on the spelling of the
persons name. The last seminar we ran, which was "Growing your Relationships - Part 1", was
the first time ever it had been run anywhere in the world. We had 49 queries to manage on
the first day of this 2 day seminar, and a huge number of people paid in the 48 hours before
the seminar started. As a result, we only had 3 people who did not receive their certificates
in time on the last day. If we had allowed cash payments for this seminar, we would have
expected a situation where we would not have had enough manuals printed for more than 50% of
the attendees, and we could also have been in a position that more than 30% of the attendees
would not have received their certificates in time.

Processing contracts, waiver and certificates requires a great deal of work. For example, if
you want to attend the Dig Deeper Instructors Seminar, we need to make sure that you have
completed your Basic DNA Practitioners, Advanced DNA Practitioners, Dig Deeper Practitioners,
Basic DNA Instructors and finally Advanced DNA Instructors. Where a situation arises that you
have not completed one of the required seminars, then your certification for the seminar you
attend could be with-held, meaning that you can not run the practitioners seminar until you
have completed all of the requirements as set out by THInK.

So taking some of this into consideration, I hope you will appreciate that hosting Vianna
Stibal, and all of the attendees who come to either take part in the ThetaHealing® events,
or who come to learn from Vianna in the Instructors Seminars, is a major organisational effort
that takes time, patience and a great deal of planning.

We can not always give everyone what they want, yet we do our best to give everyone the minimum
that they need. We always take into consideration the bigger picture, so that we can make sure
that Vianna is given the most amount of time, to share ThetaHealing® with the attendees of the
various events. Sometimes people are disappointed, as they could not get for example one of
their books signed by Vianna. However Vianna will sit down and write down a personalised message
in each book that she signs. In everything that is done, we focus on providing the best
experience possible for all of the attendees. If we had to focus on one or two individuals,
then the chances are that we would not be able to provide the experience, joy and celebration
that ThetaHealing® can be, to every single attendee of the seminars in Russia.

We hope that you will one day also be given the opportunity to join us, to join everyone else,
and share and enjoy the experience, of Vianna in Russia.
