CAVE CREEK – The Helping Hands of Maricopa County (THHMC) is pleased to announce its designation as a public tax exempt charity.

Founder Raoult Bertrand is joyful for the opportunity to offer the benefits of his life work, which culminated in Heart Awakening, to all in need. People from all walks of life – all of whom know themselves to be here to fulfill their part of the Divine Plan – will be welcome to receive effective and comprehensive healing for most physical, emotional, mental or spiritual problems they face, from there to move toward self sufficiency.

Heart Awakening is an individual spiritual healing involving a unique combination of intuitive counseling, energy work, and a deep soul-inspiring opening of the heart. The book “Heart Awakening: Your Path to Unconditional Love and Healing” by Bertrand is an ideal introduction to the healing work and is offered for purchase by The Helping Hands.

The Helping Hands will also offer silent retreats and group sessions. Teachings will cover everything one needs to know to live a heart-centered life regardless of the individual’s belief system.

The School of Healing will offer opportunities for those who wish to serve others a way to acquire the knowledge and skills to become Heart Awakening practitioners. The spiritual healing art course work will be offered in quarterly 5 day classes over a three year period. Higher level course work will be offered for those who wish to attain teaching certifications.

THHMC will operate with the goal of becoming a self sustaining entity. To that end, the property being sought will include farm acreage for food production, animal husbandry facilities, a kitchen and dining room, school facilities and group meeting space. Ideally it will have its own natural water source in addition to an excellent source of potable water and eventually be powered by wind and sun, geothermal or other self sustaining resources. This model is designed to ensure long term fiscal health and to exemplify life lived successfully in this manner.

Currently, THHMC needs volunteers with the following skills: grant writing, website development, office/marketing and tax exempt accounting skills. If you can donate all or some of your hourly rate in support of the organization on a part-time, temporary basis, please call 480-488-1731 or 1-800-370-5479 or e-mail Volunteers@TheHelpingHandsofMaricopaCounty.org.
