Are you ready to receive the knowledge you seek for physical, emotional and spiritual health? Direct the power of your mind to bring valuable information into consciousness as you explore energetic terrain and connect with your client’s inner health. Learn to reveal patterns of injury and unresolved issues that keep one bound in a state of “dis-ease.” Discover how to release traumatic imprints, boost vitality, and activate your client’s innate ability to heal. Sept 27-28, Sat-Sun, 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Lauren Nalder. (14 CEUs)

Nine of the stones may be of any type or color.

Description: Our overall health and well-being is intricately tied to the state of our physical, emotional and spiritual self. Energy organizes all matter, including our bodies, and every aspect of our lives. All imbalances originate at the energetic level. Our energy body codes within it a complete record of all our past experiences and present beliefs - it’s these beliefs and experiences which color our perception of our environment. The energy body directly influences our gene expression, which in turn affects our biology and behavior.

Learn to read and interact with your client’s energy body and assist them in releasing negative imprints - opening the way for the creation of positive new patterns of thought, as well as the healing and restoration of their entire being. Employ the ancient wisdom and healing practices of the indigenous peoples of the Americas while embracing the latest advancements of epigenetics and neuroplasticity to bring the body and brain back to a state of vibrant health.

Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to open sacred space to create a safe, trusting and nurturing environment
  • Perform a client intake interview and exit procedure
  • Describe a take-home practice that can be used at home that will support integration and continued growth for clients
  • Demonstrate how to access the energetic architecture of the body to sense its luminous structures and perceive the language of each
  • Explain how one’s experiences are stored and processed in the energetic architecture of the body
  • Describe the Inca Medicine Wheel and the four archetypal energies of Amazonian Cosmology and how these archetypes correspond to the four perceptual states of one’s being
  • Explain the process of tracking energy, the type of information retrieved from entering each perceptual state, and how this keen awareness and in depth knowledge facilitates healing for self and client
  • Demonstrate tracking energy for self and client, in each of the four perceptual states
  • Demonstrate how to connect with the energy pathways of the head to perceive and interpret stored traumatic imprints
  • Create a personal medicine bundle and explain how to partner with it to facilitate healing
  • Perform a chakra evaluation with a pendulum and assess the condition of the energy body
  • Perform a basic level shamanic energy medicine healing session, and describe how this healing modality facilitates the removal of the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual traumatic patterns that are accumulated and imprinted in the body throughout a lifetime
  • Demonstrate how to come into deep rapport with a client through the synchronization of breath and the convergence of the healing journey
  • Demonstrate how to resolve and release trauma that is energetically engraved in the body, and discover the core of disharmony to clear physical dysfunction and toxic emotional debris – replacing it with a quantum of clean energy to enhance the body’s vibrational state
  • Describe how to decode messages and decipher meaning as you receive spiritual imagery, and learn to speak this energetic language of the soul to discover delivered wisdom teachings that embody powerful healing medicine
  • Describe three basic energy clearing methods a practitioner may utilize for self-care                                       
  • Describe how to incorporate shamanic energy medicine techniques within the scope of an existing health care practice
