Open to Public Workshops


The Academy offers monthly Workshops on Intuition, Energy Medicine, Meditation, Body Work, and a variety of Holistic Health disciplines. These workshops are open to the public, without prerequisites, and offer the chance to learn about Holistic Medicines and practices without committing to a longer course curriculum.

These accessible and affordable explorations into aspects of Intuition Medicine® and related topics are taught by Academy alumni, Adjunct Faculty, and select outside presenters, and provide opportunities to expand and deepen your personal and/or professional practice — and perhaps add some new skills to your energy medicine toolbox!

One Saturday each month, unless otherwise noted workshops run from 10am to 1pm PST • Tuition: $52

Just like our bodies, buildings, and properties hold the emotional imprints of events that have happened for good or ill. These “ghosts” can exacerbate day-to-day conditions that individuals inhabiting the space experience and foster communication breakdowns, illness, or financial instability. Over the ages, many cultures have evolved traditions for cleansing a space, such as feng shui, smudging, and house blessings.

In this workshop, students will learn how to clear the energy of a space using a method that combines creative visualization, ritual, and animistic traditions. Christopher brings to this workshop twenty plus years of experience performing Space Clearings on homes, offices, and properties. He has cleared schools, businesses, and homes-for-sale — frequently working in this capacity for local realtors.

Christopher Miles is also Adjunct Faculty Member of the Academy

ZOOM/IN-PERSON Sat, Nov 20 • The Tarot as Spiritual Consultation • Andrea Natta, DAOM, Lac, MIM

10am to 1pm with optional 2 to 5pm ($50 half-day | $100 full-day) PST

In-Person & Zoom (video/phone). Registration (with prepayment) required for Zoom attendance. Zoom information will be provided prior to the workshop date.

Registration will be enabled in 2021.

Bring a tarot deck if you have one, as we explore the basics of tarot card reading and how to use the tarot as a tool for spiritual consultation. Topics will include choosing a deck, preparing for a reading, formulating a question, and different spreads.

The morning will be spent exploring the meaning behind the 78 cards, and how placement affects meaning. The afternoon will be spent exploring different ways we can consult the cards through exercises and experimentation.

The optional afternoon session will focus on readings that:

  • Use the background to answer the person's question
  • Use a figure in the card to read the person
  • Use an object in the card to answer the question
  • Use any words or numbers on the card to read the person
  • Use the card in its entirety to answer the person's question
  • If the card is upside down, read as if the energy of the card is blocked
  • If the card is upside down, read as if the energy of the card is not fully manifested

Dr. Andrea Natta received both her master’s (2001) and doctoral (2012) degrees from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. She offers insight through her MIM training (2014) and her more than 25 years of experience working with the tarot.
