(Addressing 21st Century Human Problems with 
scientifically validated healing interventions 
DR. RICK MCKINNEY - FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
" and ANCHORED TO THE ROCK (SCRIPTURES)

Welcome to CST ACADEMY where you can enroll for either Cognitive Spiritual Therapy (CST) or Nutritional Therapy (NT) classes, education and training workshop/seminars, practice placements, & supervised internships either for personal improvement, certification, ceu's or university credit. We are in hopes that you will join with thousands of others who are learning and employing both the philosophy, skills and techniques of  CST and/or NT which are both most powerful state of the art '21st Century Healing Methodologies', that were introduced to the planet called earth more than 2,000 year ago.

 

The Role of CST Academy is clear!  


The Role and Mission of CST Academy.com  is to serve as an international resource for faith-based individuals  to become efficient modern (21st Century) faith-based healers who learn and practice the brief spiritual psychotherapeutic interventions used and taught by Jesus in the 1st Century. By teaching, educating, training, deploying, interning  and then assisting graduates to be placed in gainful mental health employment, the healing power of the world's greatest healer will once more spark a world-wide healing movement to utilize patient/client spirituality i.e. belief in the healing power of God (mind, body, spirit - holistic medicine) to compliment or as an alternative to 21st century conventional western  healing medical interventions.  2,000 years ago, Jesus predicted that his disciples would one day preform a greater healing work than he had preformed. We believe that the 21st Century is the time period that he (Jesus) was speaking about. Hopefully you are called to become part of this movement.  Please prayerfully review the contents of this website and feel free to contact us with questions or to enroll.


 

PREPARING YOU TO SERVE GOD BETTER


Since we are a faith-based holistic (mind, body,emotions) healing organization, we believe that those who serve others should first experience healing, health and or wellness themselves (sick people make other people sick). Each course is set up to take each student through a personal healing experience, as a prelude to healing others. "Physician Heal Thyself')  One of the CST-ACADEMY  goals is that each student, representing a local church, or attending as a seasoned mental health professional or attending as a university student, in the educational, training or interning process,  becoming   "Fit 4 Battle" and "Ready 2 Serve" in order to successfully war against those forces that would destroy our our families, neighborhoods and our society. Fit 4 Battle is a statement of wellness, where each student is in the process of being delivered from serious personal physical or mental health problems. Ready 2 Serve is a statement of competency where the student is sufficiently being trained to grow to be able to facilitate the healing process for many different human types, of all races, ages, societies and sexual orientations of all manner of afflictions or affections.

THE SPECIALITY OF MENTAL HEALTH HEALING IS THE CORE OF EVERY OTHER POPULATION'S SPIRITUAL HEALING. THE  COGNITIVE THERAPY'S FOCUS IS ON HOW OUR EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS ARE PARTIALLY THE RESULT OF HOW WE THINK ABOUT THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO US, AND HOW THINKING DETERMINES HOW WE FEEL.
