The Energy of Relationships

By Jennifer Mills Archibald
Co-Presenter: David Archibald

Creating conscious relationships with another being while sitting deeply in our authentic glory is one of the most sacred and profound of acts. We will focus on sharing energy-based techniques between two people to foster truthful communication and connection. The techniques presented will be appropriate for all types of relationships. We will partner up to practice most of these; bring a friend or partner, or pair up with someone new! These exercises will be taken in slowly and with great reverence. Class participants will walk away with a greater sense of themselves and how to authentically connect with another.

Archetypes and Oracles in the Balancing Room

By Debra Burchard

Micheal Meade has said, "You can't just tell an archetype it doesn't exist."  They are everywhere in our lives and can contribute greatly to our healing processes. This class will introduce the Archetype Finger Mode for identifying when to use archetypes or oracles in a balancing session. We will look at various card decks, runes, and the I Ching, and apply them in a session.  Using lecture, demonstration, and hands-on practice, we will explore practical ways to bring the archetypes to life for clients and use them to promote healing and deeper understanding. This material allows us to find more deeply hidden patterns in the energy and unwind them.

Be a Walker of Realms: Bridge the Visible World and the Unseen Realms of Soul

By Junia Chou

The old word for having a foot in each world is “weird.” Have you ever felt or been deemed “weird”? What if I told you this is a special gift? You were meant to be a “Walker of Realms" to help be a bridge for the rest of us, and in today’s experiential hands-on class, you will take home three effective techniques: how to access the Inner Palace of the Mind and 1000 Rooms to heal emotional pain at a deeper level, how to “take out” pain and invoke Metaphysical Transmutation, and how to work with Metaphorical Healing for meridians.

Highly Sensitive Kids! Highly Sensitive Parents! (A Journey through our Sensory Perceptions)

By Titanya Dahlin

There is a New Generation of Empathic/Sensitive Children that have been born in the last 40 years called the Indigo Kids. Many of them are now grown parents with babies of their own. Their children have colors in their energy field of Opalescent and Rainbow. Each of these color vibrations have highly sensitive energy and strong intuition. Temper tantrums, learning challenges, reclusive, temperamental, or hyper reactions arise, amongst many other obstacles. Titanya takes you on a journey and shares with you her perspective of how the sensory styles of Kinesthetic, Visual, Auditory/Tonal, and Digital connect with the sensitivity of these unique individuals.

Emotional Alchemy

By Kris Ferraro

Emotional Alchemy teaches what we never learned growing up: how to live in an emotional body! This has become difficult in an increasingly volatile world. Popular misconceptions about feelings have had serious consequences. Emotional Alchemy to the rescue! Participants will learn what emotional energy is, how it moves or gets stuck, and common pitfalls in processing. The pillars of Emotional Alchemy and how they relate to and can transform our everyday lives will be shared. Kris will lead transformative group tapping and everyone will learn and practice other simple but powerful techniques that allow for true emotional freedom.

Energies of Shock – A Comprehensive Treatment Framework

By Eva Gold

Shock energy is a baffling subject for many practitioners to recognize and work with. The number of people experiencing shock has exploded in our dynamic culture, resulting in countless signs and symptoms clients will present to EEM practitioners. Energies of Shock is a deep-dive presentation and demonstration which will give students the tools and framework they need to successfully attack these complex energy imbalances.

The lecture will include:

  •  An in-depth discussion on the architecture of the calcaneal bone and its role in energy transfer
  • The role of the sacrum in releasing of trapped energies
  • What energy systems to focus on when working on a body compromised by shock

By attending this class, students will gain greater confidence and clarity in working with shock energies.

The Empath’s Aura: Connection, Protection, and Transformation

By Prune Harris

If you are affected by other people’s energy, or the energy of a place or situation, you are an Empath or Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). This means that your aura acts very differently from auras of people who are not Empaths/HSP. Prune will build on information provided in her class "The Empath Dilemma" to share new insights on how you can work with, and manage, your auric field to ensure that you remain vibrant, healthy, and resilient in all situations. Join Prune to learn how to help yourself, your loved ones, and your clients

Energy: The Common Denominator of Just About Everything

By Rick Leskowitz

Energy medicine is a vast field, and under its umbrella can be found such seemingly unrelated topics as Animal Magnetism, acupuncture meridians, phantom limb pain, Stonehenge, personal space, team chemistry, Gaia, sacred sites, and crop circles. But these phenomena all share a key common denominator - energy!  Come explore the missing link that helps us understand so much about our world in transformation. We’ll use slides, video clips (including several from Rick’s PBS documentary on energy in sports, featuring cameos by David and Donna), group experiences, and discussions to bring it all home.

How to Determine Priorities to Balance in an Eden Energy Medicine Session

By John Maguire

Participants will learn a method to discover whether something found out in their energy testing is a priority to balance or is a compensation. They’ll get hands-on practice to see that by balancing priorities, compensations often self-correct. They’ll also learn a method to determine whether a person’s priority for balancing is structural, biochemical, emotional, or energetic work. They’ll get hands-on practice of this procedure with easy-to-use protocols for each area. A simple way to test and correct aerobic muscle factors, which improves athletic performance and prevents repetitive strain injuries, will also be demonstrated and practiced.

Relating to the World Around Us: Using the Five Elements to Create Harmony

By Vicki Matthews

We’ve all had the experience of feeling fantastic in one place and miserable in another. If we feel energized at work but turn into a slug once home, could our home environment be zapping our energy? This class covers the numerous ways environmental energies impact personal energies and how to harmonize the relationship between the two. It draws heavily on Eden Energy Medicine and the Five Elements model and will include lecture, demonstrations, hands-on experimentation, handouts, and a take-home tool kit. It also addresses both reactive cases (stuck with an existing environment) and proactive cases (creating a new environment). Join us!


The Human Biofield and Your Electric Health

By Eileen McKusick

We have been conditioned to think of our bodies and our health chemically and mechanically; however, our bodies are fundamentally electric. Our hearts, brains, blood, bones, nerves, fascia, collagen, cells - everything conducts electrical activity, and the strength and coherence of this electrical system is a prime determinant of our health and wellbeing. By changing our belief that disease arises in a "low pH environment" and recognizing that it can in fact arise in a "low voltage environment," we open up numerous new pathways for improving our health and wellbeing electrically. In this talk, we will look specifically at how sound can be used to improve electrical conductivity in the body and its biofield, as well as a variety of simple lifestyle changes that will help people to get better at monitoring how they are discharging and recharging their own electric batteries.


Ming-Men Passage

By Ellen Meredith

This hands-on, participatory workshop for Advanced Practitioners explores some deeper subtle energy systems, in support of both grid preparation and recovery, and as stand-alone techniques for clients who have somehow disconnected from inner feeds and need help to get back home to themselves.

The Ming-Men, as we learn in EEM, is the doorway to the penetrating flow, the grandmother of the radiant circuits. When the passage into the penetrating flow is destroyed or disrupted, access to the inner being becomes difficult or impossible.

This workshop will include both methods to reinstate the Ming-Men passage and other supports for deeper intra-self communication. This hands-on, participatory workshop for Advanced Practitioners explores some deeper subtle energy systems, in support of both grid preparation and recovery, and as stand-alone techniques for clients who have somehow disconnected from inner feeds and need help to get back home to themselves.
