Throughout my 30 years of experience as a health practitioner, working across five continents, I have joined many professional associations around the world.
What really stood out to me about the Esoteric Practitioner's Association (EPA) was that it is not about ticking boxes. Being a member has been a completely different and refreshing experience, as the purpose of the Esoteric Practitioner's Association is to support practitioners to support humanity – it is not about gaining recognition or protecting a profession, but about ensuring the highest quality of healthcare is provided by its members.
This association has taken professional responsibility and integrity to a whole new level and in my opinion holds a higher level of integrity than any association I have ever come across.
In fact, it was the first professional association that considered the quality of how its members live on a daily basis – that is taking into account how they live 24/7 and not just the professional 'uniform' worn at work. The Esoteric Practitioner's Association Professional Practitioner membership is based on an annual review that actually includes one’s whole way of living, rather than just attendance to a conference or two.
Their Code of Ethics holds the highest standard of any code of ethics I have ever come across and has brought the phrase 'walking the talk' to its true meaning.
