Sacred Attention Therapy (SAT) Online Training - LEVEL 2
​The Sacred Attention Therapy (SAT) Online Training Course is a psycho-spiritual psychotherapy training that is progressive, radical, and innovative. Applications from prospective students are invited from:

• therapists – psychotherapists, counselors, and other healing practitioners
• people who want to train to become SAT therapists
• seekers who wish to practice SAT for their own personal growth and spiritual development

The SAT training consists of four levels of teaching. Each of Levels 1-3 consists of twelve modules and the recommended time for completing each level of the training is between six months and two years. Level 4 is an inspired specialist manual in practicing as an advanced SAT therapist, capable of facilitating and guiding through the First and Second Stages of Awakening.


If you are wondering if SAT Online Training is for you, we invite you to explore this page

The SAT Online Training Course, Level 2 consists of 12 modules, each consisting of 3 video presentations and a supporting .pdf document. The content continues the Process of Self-Discovery or personal therapy as described in Level 1. This course is open to students who completed Level 1 or to students who can show that they have reached a stage in their personal growth or their development as a therapist or counselor that equates with the content of Level 1.


As with Level 1, Level 2 refers to the 3-stage model of psycho-spiritual development described in Your Essential Self and Human Awakening. Broadly, Level 2 addresses the penultimate and final subjects of inner work on personality and character – forgiveness and wholeness – the mysteries of crossing the Threshold of Transformation and the initiatory preparations for the second stage of awakening.


A summary of each module is as follows:

​Module 1:     Toward Human Freedom
Module 2:     Moving Toward the Threshold
Module 3:     Where Do We Go Rrom Here
Module 4:     Age Points and Personal Mythology
Module 5:     Dreamwork, Dynamic Imagination, and the Unconscious
Module 6:     Body and Energy
Module 7:     Forgiveness
Module 8:     The Last Grains
Module 9:     Journey into Wholeness
Module 10:   The Threshold of Transformation
Module 11:   Preparation for the Second Stage of Awakening
Module 12:   Fulfilling Human Capacity and Potential

See a detailed outline for each module at the bottom of this page.


The SAT Online Training Course is available to students who wish to train in a radical, innovative therapy approach, practitioners who wish to add SAT to their existing list of skills, and to people who are committed to their own personal growth and spiritual development. The course is designed to address therapists and seekers without distinction. Each module is designed to take approximately a month to complete. We advise you to listen to the lecture presentations on three separate occasions to digest the material contained in them. The Supporting Document for each module expands on the lecture material, directs you to further sources of exploration of the subject matter and provides written and experiential exercises that bring the course material to life and ground you in the insights of SAT Level 2 training.

Level 2 may be studied for your own growth and personal satisfaction as an invaluable source of guidance, information, theory and method for your awakening. If you are pursing SAT studies with a view to enhancing your professional CV then, as in Level 1, you may present your work selected from the Supporting Documents, prepare a major essay, and conduct a “therapy session” (over Skype) for appraisal by three members of the SAT teaching faculty in order to obtain SAT certification. The Center for Human Awakening can alternatively issue a certificate of course completion.


Who is the SAT Online Training Course For?

The course is open to psychotherapists, counselors, complementary-alternative medicine practitioners, healers, mentors, and guides, as well as to people who are serious about their own personal and spiritual growth and development. 

You may take the training in order to become a SAT therapist with formal certification or to add SAT to your existing skills and knowledge base if you are already a practicing therapist or counselor. Finally, you may take the course to further your own self-development and awareness.​

Individual Therapy:

All students are encouraged to be in individual therapy for the duration of the course. The therapist does not have to be a SAT practitioner.

How To Apply For Formal Certification in SAT Training Level 2:

Students who take the course with the intention of practicing as SAT therapists should apply for formal certification. To apply for certification in the SAT Online Training Course: Level 2 please follow these guidelines:

1. Questions and Exercises: Complete the requirements as described in "Conditions for Certification" in the accompanying document for each of the twelve modules of the course.

2. Major Essay: Send your proposed title and a brief summary of the subject matter of your major essay for approval to [email protected].

3. Therapist-Client Enactment: Your experiential assessment takes place via a Skype "session" lasting approximately 40 minutes. You will be presented with a profile and some background on your "client" a week to ten days beforehand.

4. Collect your work -- questions and exercises, and your major essay -- into a single Word document. Use Times New Roman 12 automatic font. Make sure your module titles, paragraphing, and grammar are consistent and clear. Please have these checked by someone who knows about grammar and presentation, if you are not sure. Work which is not presented clearly with good grammar and layout will be returned for you to amend. 

5. Send your fee (€ 350 Euros) via the payment form.

6. Your work is reviewed by a minimum of three members of the SAT teaching faculty. Comments and evaluation are made independently without collaboration to ensure impartiality. If your work falls short of the level expected for awarding certification, you will be asked to submit all or part of it again. This process may be repeated for a third submission only. If the work is still not of sufficient standard, you may apply to start the entire process a second time but a second payment is required.

Please note certification is given for the complete course, not for individual modules.

What people are saying about the main texts for SAT Online Training:

"Richard, I have been following your work for the last two years and always feel that it resonates with me! You simply speak truth. I have been studying your book Your Essential Self and it has been exactly what I needed. Not only is it like having my own therapist, but it has been a practical resource that enables me to delve deeper into who I am, not only as a human but as a spiritual being. Thank you!"
Haris Tzortzis, Founder and Personal Growth Coach, Happy Light Coaching Ltd, Primary School Teacher

"A wonderful book that combines eastern and western wisdom: I love authenticity, something that Richard Harvey's book "Your Essential Self" promises in its title and actualizes in its content. Too many people look to others and outward to find themselves, a perfect teacher, a perfect religion, or a perfect, imaginary future. This book invites self-exploration while gently guiding the reader along, with both psychological and spiritual wisdom. It's a beautiful book and I recommend it to all seekers of truth."
Dr. Andrea Polard, author of "A Unified Theory of Happiness" and Founder of the Los Angeles Center for Zen Psychology

"Your Essential Self is one of the most empowering and helpful books on personal and spiritual transformation I have ever read. Every page resonates with such deep understanding and compassion that you feel you are in the presence of a wise and trusted mentor. The questionnaires and exercises at the end of each chapter complement your inner work as you progress through the book at your own pace. Harvey guides you every step of the way with respect and realism, making it a joy to take this rewarding journey. I highly recommend this book."
Miriam Walker, author of A Cautious Man and The Holiday Retreat & Other Stories

What people are saying about SAT Online Training:

"​So often teaching therapy stops short of the connection with the spiritual, or perhaps is just not recognised by the therapist when they have entered into that sacred, and often forgotten place. The awareness of the spiritual dimension seems to require the heart chakra to first break, release the hidden pains into the field of compassion; which, in my experience, has a mysterious element to it; and then transformation occurs. There is no blue print to our development, but wholehearted honesty in every living connection seems to be a vital key to disclosing the works of love. The very best to you for your work with the Sacred Attention Therapy Online Training. The world needs the seeds to be planted!"
Marion Duff, Counsellor, FE/HE Tutor, and Supervisor, BACP, Cert Ed.

"Richard, you have an insight that resonates on so many levels. You are able to articulate an awareness that would otherwise just remain an innate acknowledgement. I have a broad professional background but always searched for an understanding that never quite emerged through theory and postgraduate education; your work and insight seems to make sense of that missing link for me and feeds my yearning to escape the statutory demands that don't fit with my passion for offering psychospiritual compassion and support. Thank you for your wisdom -- it's a privilege to know you and learn from you."
Kirsty Hodgson, Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist, and Supervisor; Advisor on Mental Health Strategy to the House of Commons and the Scottish Parliament.

"Richard’s writings and my personal experience of working with Richard to the Sacred Attention Therapy (SAT) model have provided me with an invaluable deepening and broadening of my inner work. Personally, professionally, spiritually and psychologically Richard’s work has helped bring together and add to all of my prior therapeutic, theological and healing training into a heart-based therapy that is both thorough and honouring. Richard’s original idea of the Central Character Dynamic (CCD) and the process of clarifying its structure is truly ground-breaking and has been one of the most frustrating, annoying (to my ego at any rate) and rewarding experiences to date. I have felt the benefits of SAT personally and have been privileged to witness them with clients."
