Level 4 FAQ

Level 4: Advanced Protocols

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When is the application period for Level 4: Advanced Protocols classes?

The 2020-21 Level 4 US application period will open in early July 2020.
The 2020-21 Level 4 Europe application period will open in late February 2021.

Q. How many days are the classes?

Level 4 classes are typically four days each, scheduled around a weekend.

Q. How much will it cost?

The tuition for Level 4 is $2345 per class, or $4690 for the year. Each class payment is due upon registration for that class.

Q. Does this include food and lodging?

Food and lodging are separate, but Eden Method's discounted hotel rates are available.

Q. I have already submitted a Level 4 application in a previous year. Do I need to re-apply?

If you have applied previously, you'll need to re-apply. Only applications received during the current application period will be considered. We understand that this will be extra work for those of you who have already submitted them and we apologize for any inconvenience.

We need every current applicant to submit a new application in full and plus ONE Letter of Recommendation (instead of the previous four) from a faculty member who knows your present work.

Q. What are the prerequisites for applying for Level 4?

To apply for Level 4, you must be a graduate of EEM Levels 1, 2, and 3, and you must also have a status of an EEM Certified Practitioner in Good Standing by maintaining a current EEM Continued Training Certificate.

Exceptions are extremely rare. We feel it is important that all Level 4 Advanced Practitioners have had the same level of training.

Q. Will the 100 sessions I submitted for Level 3 be applicable to my Level 4 application session requirements?

If you completed (or are completing) Level 3 within 18 months of the start of the upcoming Level 4 Grid class for which you apply, the 100 sessions from your Level 3 studies will qualify.

If you graduated from Level 3 more than 18 months before the start of the Grid class, you will need to include with your Level 4 application documentation of 100 EEM sessions from the 18 months prior to the Grid class.

Q. What if I have an emergency and cannot attend one of the classes? Will I be able to attend the following year, or watch a video of the class instead, as is allowed in EEM Level 1 and 2?

Each Level 4 class must be attended in person. If a make-up class is necessary for Grid or Regression due to inabilty to attend, the student may attend the next available Level 4 class that they missed.

Q. Can I take either of the classes individually, rather than commit to the entire program?

Grid and Regression classes are only offered within the context of the full Level 4 program. Performing a Grid session can take a client into a Regression, and doing a Regression session can take a client back to where a Grid was broken. We feel it is important and responsible to make sure that all who do this level of practice have both techniques at the ready.

Q. Is Level 4: Advanced Protocols something everyone should attend to complete their EEM education?

Level 4 is designed for those practitioners who are already working substantively and consistently with clients, and are experienced and sturdy enough to take their clients to the deeper levels of healing accessed with Grid and Regression.

Many of us study EEM simply to increase the health and well-being of ourselves and our loved ones, or to have a very minimal professional practice. These are very worthy goals, and no less lofty than those who study EEM as a full-time career.

Grid and Regression are the deepest tools we offer, and not everyone will want to take the time and effort necessary to become the practitioners they need to be to take on this work. Playing guitar around the campfire for everyone to enjoy is just as enriching and valuable as playing a concert at Carnegie Hall, sometimes more so. We invite you to think about the level of practice that suits your desire and lifestyle when considering applying to Level 4. And remember - significant, lasting healing can indeed take place without ever doing Grid or Regression work.

Q. How many students will be in the class?

The Level 4 classes will be very small compared to EEM Level 2 and Level 3 classes. The maximum will be 32 students in a Level 4 class. The ratio of supervisor to student will be smaller as well; your small group will likely be no larger than 8 students per supervisor.

Q. What will the format be of the Level 4 classes?

The Grid and Regression classes will each be a combination of lecture, demonstration, and small group sessions. More than being a typical workshop, these classes will be actual forums for experiencing these techniques, from both a practitioner's and a client's point of view.

Q. Do I need to have a Grid out to attend?

Some of you might already have all of your major Grids repaired. In that event, your class partner will either do a minor Grid session or a Cloaccal session for you.

If you know you have a major Grid out, we suggest you do not have it repaired prior to the class. Working with a major Grid in the class will have benefits in terms of your overall learning experience and that of your class partner. So please consider the option of delaying further Grid work if you are planning on applying for Level 4.

Q. What happens between the Grid and Regression classes? Are there supervision assignments similar to those in Level 2 and Level 3?

After you have completed the Grid class, you will be mentored through your first Grid sessions. After your Regression class, you will finish your required six Grid sessions and complete your four Regression sessions.

The Level 4 supervision phase is lengthier and more in-depth than you have previously received for an EEM class. This is to allow you to confer with your supervisor about the clients you are preparing for their Grid and/or Regression sessions, and to debrief with them after each session. You will receive a total of 12 hours of supervision time in Level 4.

Q. Will I have the same supervisor for Grid and Regression?

You will have a different supervisor for each class. We find it advantageous to have students experience diverse teaching and mentoring styles. Thus, the faculty and mentors for Grid and Regression will not be the same for both classes of Level 4.

Q. Is there a deadline to complete the six Grids and four Regressions? What if I miss it?

You will have 12 months from the end of the Grid class to complete your supervision requirements for both the Grid and Regression classes.

All Level 4 work must be completed before you qualify to be listed on the EEM Certified Practitioner Directory as an EEM Advanced Practitioner (EEM-AP).

If you can't finish by the deadline, a one-time extension will be allowed, which will give you an extra six months to complete your session requirements. You will be required to pay for any additional hours of supervision necessary for this period. If, at the end of the six month extension, the supervision is still not complete, it will be necessary to attend Level 4 again.
