Introduction – Day by Day – Dates – Costs/Discounts – Booking – About– Testimonials

“The Rainbow Bridge is a profound life-changing experience – one you will not want to miss. Declan and Louise are wonderful soul midwives for transformation, healing, coming home and blossoming into your true self.” – Tracy, Co Cork.


The Rainbow Bridge is a life-changing soul journey with Declan Hammond & Louise O’Donnell. This course is for anyone wanting to develop a deep, practical understanding of the chakras for their own personal healing in a safe, supportive community of kindred spirits. It is particularly suitable for therapists and healers who wish to expand and renew their understanding of energy medicine through a comprehensive programme. Over seven months we will journey together using the seven chakras as a map of consciousness and an evolutionary tool to reclaim our wholeness. Using experiential practices such as meditation, creative visualisation and knowledge from the worlds of tantra, shamanism & homeopathy, we will support each other in exploring, balancing and healing ourselves.

“I can 100% recommend this course to anyone with an interest in learning about the chakras and how to develop a deeper understanding of this amazing energy that is within all of us. Declan and Louise are gifted practitioners who have presented the course in a very creative and inspirational way.” – Jackie, Co Meath

The course will:

  • Explore how each chakra functions in health & dis-ease
  • Provide a practical context for understanding the chakra model
  • Support physical, emotional and spiritual healing
  • Greatly enhance communication and understanding in therapeutic & clinical practice
  • Expand personal and professional healing capacity
  • Teach conscious manifestation through the chakras
  • Create a supportive network for personal growth and professional development.

What an amazing course to do. I have learnt a lot over the years attending and reading various therapies and The Rainbow Bridge puts it all together in a very practical and easy way to follow. I loved learning with the group and being in the lovely supervision of Declan and Louise. The conference calls were very supportive and a real chance to take it all in. I would highly recommend this course, especially if you are a therapist as we know its just as important to look after ourselves too.” – Ciara, Co Wexford

The journey consists of:

  • 7 attendance days
  • 6 conference calls
  • A comprehensive home study programme, including course notes, guided meditations, exercises at home or in nature to enrich and support your daily practice and to integrate the healing process into your life
  • Creating a community of support
  • Exclusive access to further Soul Medicine courses on completion of the programme.

“I found the course very empowering. I feel much stronger within myself, I would recommend The Rainbow Bridge to everyone. It is good for self healing and also to find your true life path or anyone who is thinking of healing others should start with The Rainbow Bridge workshop.” – Marian, Co Meath

Day by Day

Day 1 – Base & Call 1 – Base at Home

Through the Base Chakra, we connect to the essence of our survival as human beings. During these sessions, we explore our territory on earth, our tribal urges and needs and our durability, strength and rootedness. We set out the foundations of the course, including shamanic techniques for holding power, respect and healing energy in the circle.

Day 2 – Sacral & Call 2 – Sacral at Home

Journeying through the Sacral Chakra, we explore our impulse to create, to reproduce our inner impulses in the material world, our desires for emotional connections with others. During these sessions, we explore creativity, emotions and neediness/detachment: How do I release addictive and co-dependent patterns in relationships? What do I need for my emotional nourishment?

Day 3 – Solar & Call 3 – Solar at Home

Working with the Solar Plexus invites us to define ourselves as human beings, to come into healthy balance with our ego, with our ability to maintain healthy boundaries and to be present in the outer world. During these sessions we explore status, power, success and the healthy ego.

Day 4 – Heart & Call 4 – Heart at Home

The Heart calls us to put love at the centre of our lives, to connect with others from our centre and to heal the heart wounds from uncentred love connections. During these sessions we examine giving and receiving love and ways of connecting with the heart’s true desire.

Day 5 – Throat & Call 5 – Throat at Home

Learning how to speak our own truth and listen to the truth of others is a key aspect of the Throat Chakra. During these sessions we work with deep listening and loving speech and also with other techniques to heal blocks to clear communication.

Day 6 – Brow & Call 6 – Brow at Home

The Brow or 3rd Eye Chakra is our place for intuition, sometimes even clairvoyance or other psychic gifts. During these sessions we look at divination and unblocking our connection to our psychic intuition as tools for connecting to our higher wisdom.

Day 7 – Crown

At the end of this journey through the chakras, we come to the Crown, our connection to all that is, to our personal star from where we were dreamed into being. During this session we connect back to our celestial origins in the cosmos, reinvigorating our connection to the initial magic of creation from the beginnings of time as we know it. We also celebrate completing our journey together with the awarding of course completion certificates and a sharing of food.
