Our earth is alive and evolving in parallel with our own human species and personal evolution. She holds the very blueprint of Life within our planet. Crystals are recording transmission and transformational tools. They are memory chips from which we can awaken and harness latent abilities. Co-creating with the crystal/mineral kingdom clarifies, amplifies, and elegantly quickens the evolutionary spark of our human potential.

The primary focus will be conscious connection and co-creation with the crystal kingdom, and to further enhance the tools being practiced in your AIM repertoire.

We will be discussing and exploring the synergy of crystals through:

  • Mechanics and metaphysics of crystal and colored light
  • Five attributes of crystal consciousness
  • Ancient crystal skull consciousness
  • Crystal meditation with the Light Labyrinth™ technology

You are encouraged to bring a few personal crystals/minerals or power objects to this workshop. Crystals will also be available for purchase during the event.

Kirby Seid, BA, MIM has traveled the world for crystals, fossils, and minerals.
He designs visionary tools for healing practices, spiritual teachers, and shamans. Kirby has a degree in psychology and teaches Crystal and Light Labyrinth™ workshops at institutes and conferences around the world. For more info:

2021 Workshops

TBA • Be Present — Be Grounded • Miriam Moussaioff, MIM

A Body-Centered Approach to Practicing Presence and Intuitive Awareness

Energy Medicine teaches us that opening to intuition starts by being present in our bodies. Our bodies are the foundation for healing, the doorway to intuitive knowing and a rich inner life. The transformation and healing we seek happen inside the body, not just the mind.  And yet for many of us, “being in our bodies” is no easy task. Especially during these turbulent times.

In this workshop, Miriam will draw from her training in Energy Medicine and Rosen Bodywork to teach simple practices that support presence and grounding in the body.  This workshop offers a safe space to relax, reconnect with your body and emotional center, strengthen your ground and open to intuitive guidance —that amazing wellspring of deep knowing and love within. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Practice listening to and being present in your body
  • Learn how to influence what is happening in your body emotionally, physically and energetically
  • Strengthen your capacity to hold a safe, grounded, compassionate space for your self and others
  • Explore how change happens naturally in the body when you open to and allow what is, without trying to fix anything
  • Experience the gentle, healing non-intrusive touch of Rosen Bodywork
  • Sit deeply inside your self

“Don’t go outside your house to see flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.
That will do for a place to sit...”     

~ Kabir

Miriam Moussaioff is an Academy alumna who has been practicing intuitive energy healing and Rosen Method Bodywork for 29 years.  Miriam teaches intuitive development, somatic awareness and grounding practices that deepen presence and support embodiment. She loves helping people listen to their bodies and trust their intuition. Miriam maintains a private practice in Berkeley, CA and brings a compassionate approach to her work.

TBA • Egoscue Workshop • Jenean LaRoche, RH, CMT, MIM

Whether you are experiencing pain, have less energy than you would like, want to look younger or are looking to improve sports performance, Egoscue has helped hundreds of thousands of people reach a higher level of wellness. While most chronic pain treatment methods only address symptoms or try to deaden or mask pain, Egoscue corrects the postural issues that are at the root of your ongoing discomfort.

In this class you will learn:

  • The Egoscue philosophy—The Pain/Posture Link
  • How chronic pain develops and how we can start to shift out of the patterning
  • The 8 laws of physical health—Vertical Loading, Dynamic Health, Form and Function, Breathing, Motion, Balance, Stimulus, Renewal
  • The three common posture deviation patterns and how they lead to pain and even joint damage
  • Learn to spot posture deviations in ourselves and others

The class will include 45 minutes of Egoscue exercises for general posture health as well as 15 minutes of exercises to do during the workday. These are easy to accomplish exercises that need no special equipment. Modifications will be given so all ages and abilities can participate. A handout of all of the exercises will be given as well as recommendations of Egoscue exercise videos on youtube to address various areas of pain (back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain etc.)

Please plan to wear comfortable clothing to move in (yoga wear or t-shirts and sweat pants etc.) and bring a yoga mat.

April 17 • Animal Communication: In Sickness and In Death • Barbara Reed, MIM

For those of us who are in deep communion with our pets, we know that emotionally they are very like humans. There can be some differences however when ill or transitioning toward death. During this workshop, we will discuss how we can help our pets, and ourselves, through these difficult times.

Topics for discussion include:

  • The importance of objectivity and boundaries
  • What healing energy to use and when to utilize it
  • The role of your veterinarian
  • Your role as an animal communicator, energy healer

The class is comprised of discussion and healing work. Please bring pictures of animals that are seriously ill, have passed over, or are soon to. Pictures are best if they show the pet during the illness or close to death. Note: this is not a class about medical intuition; we will be working with the spiritual and emotional aspects of the topic.

Barbara Reed has more than 20 years of experience as an animal communicator and energy healer. Her approach with animals is to the spiritual and emotional sides, working to understand what causes changes to behavior, what happened in the early formative years of the animal’s life, end of life, and the animal’s needs and desires.


**Please note: no pets allowed at workshop.
Bring pictures of all your family pets for our panel work. Hard copy photos are preferred rather than phone pictures.
