Do you or your client suffer from health issues that you haven’t been able to resolve yet? It has been said that “knowledge is power” so the more you know, the more likely you will find a solution to those stubborn problems. In this class, you will learn basic Anatomy including cell level, organs, glands and systems to get a better understanding of location, function and possible problems relating to them. Studying this information from a Western Medicine and an Intuition Medicine® perspective including how it all relates to the chakras and the subtle energy systems of the body, such as acupuncture meridians will enable you to more deeply understand this information. In addition, the connection between the physical, energetic, and emotional may uncover more possibilities to determine the root cause of the issue, hence leading to a solution.


Some of the most common illnesses will also be studied from Western Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Intuition Medicine® perspectives including symptoms, causes, and treatments to get a broader understanding of possible causes and subsequent solutions using energy medicine tools.

Through the use of guided meditation, lecture and lab practice, we will look at the physical and energetic anatomy as it relates to chakras and meridians including location, function, possible health issues or imbalances, and their role in creating optimal health or dis-ease. We will use energetic blueprints of a diseased person vs. a highest healed person to become familiar with the similarities and differences. Some basic aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine will be introduced to add more depth to the information. Additional suggestions on how to bring all this information together to improve your client intake, assess the root cause of the issues then determine the appropriate energy tools and lifestyle suggestions to help resolve them, as well as to maintain wellness will be discussed.

This class is open to anyone who has a desire to learn more about the physical and energy body as they relate to health and dis-ease to enable them to resolve stubborn health problems. The information will be presented in a simple, understandable format that can be used by individuals and practitioners alike.

Children are naturally intuitive and have the capacity to understand and develop this valuable way of perceiving and relating to their inner and outer experiences. Being able to interpret the information available to them and then to use energy management skills for establishing and maintaining grounding, life force energy, and energetic boundaries can lead to an increased sense of empowerment, greater resilience with challenging people and environments, and an overall sense of connectedness and wellbeing. 


Using imagination as the language of intuition, each week we’ll be learning about a different aspect of the subtle energy body, as well as practicing age-appropriate skills that are essential to maintaining a healthy system. The emphasis will be on experiential learning that includes guided meditation, movement, expressive arts, and talking circles.

Week 1:  What is Intuition? Ways that you are already intuitive.

Week 2:  Grounding to the Earth – Keeping yourself strong and feeling good.
Meditation Sanctuary – Your quiet inner peaceful place.

Week 4:  Life Force, Earth Energy, and Neutral Separations – Feeling like yourself.

Week 5:  Aura, Chakras, and Color Healing — Emotional protection and healing touchpoints.

Parents are encouraged to attend the last 10 minutes of each class to review the lesson for the day, as well as some ways they can support the learning and practices at home.  



Tools for Teens • Maya Holland MIM

“Tools for Teens is as simple as its name — a meditation-based healing service that provides teenagers with ways to navigate personal and social matters, using Energy Medicine. Relationship troubles? Stress? Friendship issues? Trust me, I’ve been through it, and I’m here to help.”


During high school, Maya began her two-year study of Energy Medicine at The Academy of Intuition Medicine®. The tools she learned helped her successfully process the various emotional, social, and personal challenges that she experienced. After graduating from High School, she moved to London for one-year of University, and has since returned to the San Francisco Bay area.


  From Maya 

Life as a teenager is exciting and wonderful, but it definitely comes with its challenges. This, coupled with the severe lockdowns in London and my attempts to navigate the cultural and social nuances of a new country, caused me to experience feelings of loneliness and melancholy.

But with the use of the energy tools I practice, I was able to stay centered and grounded so that these sometimes difficult experiences became something I met with gratitude and not victimhood. It was clear that many of my peers at University had similar feelings, and it was from this process that Tools for Teens was born. As a teen myself, I understand the struggles of my peers. Tools for Teens allows me to share what I've learned so others can have the ability to meet their own challenges through development of a mindfulness and meditation practice.

Intuition isn't about knowing all the answers on your math test, it's about using what your body tells you to make the choices that are most aligned for you. That's our goal when doing sessions: to help you tap into your inner power and clear out excess clutter that doesn’t belong. I will provide you with tools to strengthen your boundaries and support you as you give yourself permission to let go of what's no longer serving you. Being able to listen to yourself and trust your intuition plays a huge part in self-healing.
