Registrations for Raindrop and Vitaflex are limited to keep class sizes small for better hands-on attention and training.

So register early to assure yourself a place.
As for the History of Anointing, Chem I, Chem II, and Emotional Release classes, these are demonstration/lecture classes and there are no limitations on class size for these beyond the seating capacity of the room. They are all open to the public at ala carte prices with registrations taken at the door. Call CARE Headquarters at (800) 758-8629 for ala carte registrations. There is usually room for walk-ins at the times of the classes, but pre-registration is recommended for these portions of the CARE Intensive if you want to be assured of a place.

Bring two (2) sheets, two (2) bath towels, and one (1) hand towel. If you would be willing to bring a massage table, please mention this when you register. You are encouraged also to bring your Bible for the History of Anointing class.
While there are no texts required to take the CARE classes, if you own a copy of THE CHEMISTRY OF ESSENTIAL OILS MADE SIMPLE, please bring it inasmuch as it will be referred to often in the Chemistry classes. Those without a copy of the Chemistry Book will be loaned a copy of the book to follow during class. Chemistry books will be available for purchase at the seminar. Other texts to be used include FEELINGS BURIED ALIVE, HEAL YOUR BODY, and RELEASING EMOTIONAL PATTERNS WITH ESSENTIAL OILS. These will be available for loan or purchase at the seminar.
Texts and videos required for CCIs, as well as other publications, will be available for sale at the seminar.
It is a good idea to purchase the CARE DVDs on Raindrop and Vitaflex to review ahead of class in preparation for the hands-on training. Your fingernails must also be very short and filed smooth on the edges and corners. No fingernail polish. Clippers and files will be available in class. With long nails you will not be able to do all of the Vitaflex and Raindrop techniques. If you cannot perform all of the techniques taught in class because of long nails, you may not receive credit for the class.
