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

  • Post-workshop, all participants will receive a link to download the workshop video recording.

2021 Workshops

ZOOM ONLY Sat, March 6 • Awaken the Healer within Using Qi and Light Frequencies • Beth Greer, MIM and Eli Cohen

10:00 am to 1:00 pm PST

Zoom Only (video/phone). Registration (prepayment) required for all attendees. Zoom information will be provided post-registration.


Light and invisible energies vibrate at certain frequencies and are central to how we can heal ourselves. Chinese Qi Gong practitioners have known about these frequencies for thousands of years. They tell us these energies can literally change the physical makeup of our cells. They are created by manipulating Qi flow using movement and intention. They are also created by using a new breakthrough in stem cell technology that is activated by using the light from our bodies. This in turn triggers the production of our own stem cells — master cells used for healing, regeneration, and rejuvenation.

In this workshop, Qigong Master and Medical Qi Gong practitioner Eli Cohen, and Beth Greer, MIM, bestselling author and Founder/CEO of The True Vitality Project, will show you how to cultivate and enhance your life-force energy, move stuck energy, and use frequencies to heal your body.

Beth and Eli will show you how to kickstart your own molecular wisdom to repair and rejuvenate.

Eli will share:

  • What is Qi and what are the keys to cultivating powerful healing abilities
  • The three components that make up Healing Energy and how to develop them
  • A group Medical Qi Healing Practice

Beth will reveal:

  • How she healed herself of a chest tumor 19 years ago and what and how she’s healing now
  • Why it’s critical to add natural light into your life, why blue light from screens affects us, and how to mitigate
  • How to activate your own stem cells to repair damaged tissue and reset them to a younger, healthier state.

ZOOM/IN-PERSON Sat, April 17 • Animal Communication: Are Animals So Different from Humans? • Barbara Reed, MIM

10:00 am to 1:00 pm PST

In-Person & Zoom (video/phone). Registration (with prepayment) required for Zoom attendance. Zoom information will be provided after registration is completed.


Barbara Reed has over 25 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.

During this conversation we will discuss how humans and animals can be both similar and different to one another emotionally. Topics will include:

  • The attachments between animal and human
  • Healing energies with animals — how to know when to start, and when to stop
  • Two-way communication
  • Detecting disease and pain
  • End of life situations

We’ll also explore:

  • An easy way to look at the relationship between the pet and its family members (human and other animals)
  • Learning about the subtle energy systems within animals
  • Communication with an animal that is non-verbal

Handouts are included with the workshop. Be prepared with questions as this class is intended to be interactive.


**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.


ZOOM/IN-PERSON Sat, May 1 • Enhancing Your Energy Medicine Toolbox and Muscle Testing Workshop • Connie Prodromou, LA.c, 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.

Payment is made directly to the instructor: either via cash, check, or to her PayPal at 10am to 1pm PST attendance | 10am to 5pm PST attendance

Do you or a client have a stubborn health issue that you haven’t been able to resolve? In this workshop, you will learn some ways to think outside the box to help find solutions to long-standing problems. Oftentimes we are looking so hard at what we think is the problem that we can’t see what is underneath it which actually may be the root cause. In the practice of Energy Medicine if only the symptoms are treated without addressing the root cause, those as well as other symptoms may return.

We will cover:

  • A brief introduction to chakras as they relate to the organ/meridian theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine including areas of the body that they relate to and possible symptoms.
  • Internal (emotional) and external (physical agents) causes of dis-ease according to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and how they might be the underlying cause of dysfunction.
  • Questions to ask to determine possible root causes or contributing factors associated with time of day, time of year, diet, lifestyle, life traumas, and relationships.
  • Suggestions on how to use this information to resolve the issues.

The afternoon session will cover:

  • Various ways to muscle test for use in your work and life to confirm decisions or access information.


ZOOM/IN-PERSON Sat, Oct 30 • The Anatomy of a Space Clearing • Chrisopher Miles, MIM

10am to 1pm 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 later in 2021.

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.
