Energy Medicine: A Hands-on Experience Donna Eden with David Feinstein

By learning how to work with your body’s ener- gies, you can improve your health, increase your vitality, and enrich your life. In a class designed to be both transformational and fun, Donna Eden will show you how health concerns can be a path to a more harmonious and joyful relation- ship with your body. Your body is designed to heal itself and feel good.

During this hands-on training, you’ll be shown how to:

• Test for energy blocks and dysfunction and move energy in yourself and others

• Use energy tools to improve the harmony of all the body’s systems and help alleviate pain and stress

• Boost your energies when you are exhausted, strengthen your immune system, and feel more alive

• Discover the ways health problems can be helped, if not overcome, by intelligently shifting the energies that are maintaining them

Dr. Jean Houston, one of the foremost visionary thinkers of our time, called Donna’s approach “perhaps the most comprehensive and effective system in the genre that I have ever seen.” Dr. Christiane Northrup, pioneer of health and wellness, has referred to Donna as “one of the most joyous and effective pioneers in the rapid-

ly expanding and vitally important frontier called energy medicine.” This workshop is for anyone interested in awakening the body’s potentials and learning to heal with energy. Assisting Donna will be her husband David Feinstein, a clinical psychologist and longtime Esalen workshop leader.

Recommended reading: Eden, Energy Medicine.

Embodiment Tools for an Empowered Life

Wendy Palmer

Many of us aspire to be more centered, mindful, and compassionate in our lives and as leaders, but we return again and again to unskillful reac- tions and habits. When stressed or when faced with conflict we are unable to embody the changes that we know we want. Founded by Wendy Palmer, the Conscious Embodiment per- sonal development program draws on the tradi- tions of Aikido and mindfulness practice to offer simple yet powerful practices that help you recognize how your mind and body habitually react to pressure, and how to access different ways to be powerful and to collaborate with oth- ers. During this workshop we’ll explore the fol- lowing three basic energetic leadership compe- tencies:

• Inclusiveness. It is the foundation of leadership, and should infuse the way we communicate the message, “we are in this together.”

• Action without aggression. Take a stand and speak and act in a genuine way that is clear and magnetizing.

• Listen without taking it personally. To listen and hear what is being said without reacting, a leader needs an open mind, a strong center, and the ability to detach while maintaining a receptive presence. The exercises associated with each competency provide a vivid sense of what it feels like to align conceptual, emotional, and embodied aspects of yourself.

Wendy Palmer is a sixth-degree black belt in aikido and the author of two books,The Intuitive Body and The Practice of Freedom. She leads trainings in the US, Canada, Europe, and South Africa. She has been practicing aikido and mindfulness for 40
