The core of this class is a lively 3-day intensive workshop that introduces students to the fundamental principles and procedures of energy medicine. Energy medicine recognizes energy as a vital, living, moving force that determines much about health and happiness. Drawing from a wide range of health systems and spiritual traditions, energy medicine heals body and spirit both by activating the person’s natural healing energies (“energy as the healer”) and by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance (“energy as the patient”). Energy medicine is both a complement to other approaches to medical care and a complete system for self-care and self-help. It can address physical illness and emotional or mental disorders, and can also promote high-level wellness and peak performance.
The class will show participants how to increase their vitality, effectiveness, and joy in life by attending to their body’s energies. It will also provide a set of techniques that can be readily adapted to a professional health care practice for overcoming physical and emotional problems by shifting stagnant, blocked, or scrambled energies. Participants will receive clear instruction and hands-on experience with over half the topics introduced in Donna Eden’s book, Energy Medicine. The class is fun, spiritually uplifting, and offers a wealth of useful tools.
