The answer that you'll get from honest P.H. practitioners, is that it costs money to continue too provide their services, and it's the same for churches. To help people through spreading knowledge which is their goal, you must have the means to do so. Consider, that some college courses require books that cost $300 USD. 1 of mine did. If you think about it P.H. classes are no more expensive than a college class. It's just that in a college class, those hours are spread over a few months. Also, all of the teachers have paid for those classes to, so it's not like they're teaching you knowledge that they got for free. You can also repeat a lot of their classes for free, or for 1/2 the price. They also teach aside from the teaching, you get practice time, & it depending on the teacher, he, or she, might teach you something that you weren't expecting to learn. You can also workout a payment plan, & if you can pay for the class early, you get a discount. Personally, I think it's worth the experience, especially if you seek spiritual, or esoteric knowledge, & you can afford it. Pranic Healing encourages people to question things, especially those seeking spiritual knowledge.
