The Energy Cure: Unraveling the Mystery of Hands-on Healing

Can energy healing really cure cancer? Is it possible for you to heal someone’s terminal illness with your bare hands? Is the Western medical community ready for a fundamental change in its approach to treatment? Dr. Bengston invites you to decide by taking a journey with him into the mystery and power of hands-on healing.


Drawing on his 30 years of rigorous research, unbelievable results, and mind-bending questions, Bengston challenges us to totally rethink what we believe about our ability to heal. The event will present how Dr. Bengston discovered and cultivated his healing talent and how you can do the same. Alternative and energetic forms of healing and how they support your body’s natural healing process. Paradigm-shifting experimental results and why they seem so difficult for some to believe.

His “day job” areas of specialization include research methods and statistics. For many years, Bill has conducted research into anomalous healing, and has proven the effectiveness of his technique in 10 controlled animal experiments conducted in five university biological and medical laboratories. His healing research has produced the first successful full cures of transplanted mammary cancer and methylcholanthrene induced sarcomas in experimental mice by laying-on-of-hands techniques that he helped to develop.

Science, Spirituality and Medicine

“After fifty years of medical practice, it has become clear to me that there is an intricate organization and incredible perfection in the universe that is mindboggling, especially when it comes to illness. The more I have contemplated the workings of the universe in health and disease, the more I’ve become impressed with how every aspect of a person’s “dance with illness” unfolds in a way the reveals meaning and value. I have observed so many instances where my patient’s illness has had an impact beyond its associated physical disabilities and psychological challenges that I’ve come to expect there is always a deeper meaning that is an integral part of illness.”


Dr. Saputo will share his ideas about how science and spirituality:

• Address health and disease and

• Integration of approaches to make sense of illness

• Explore the boundaries of our human potential

• Assess “where we go from here” to get the most out life

The Power of Intuition and Empathy to Heal

Intuition is an incredible source of wisdom that everyone can tap into. The magic comes in awakening it and trusting its guidance in our lives. Yet too many of us walk around out of touch with our inner voice. What stops us from listening? How can we listen more?


Judith Orloff, a psychiatrist, intuitive healer, and author of the bestsellers Intuitive Healing, Emotional Freedom and Second Sight shows how to reclaim this intelligence. She passionately believes that the future of medicine lies in using intuition to access deeper insight, empathy, and greater wellness. Orloff offers practical methods to tap into medical intuition and use it to improve the quality of your decisions, health, and life.

You’ll be shown how to awaken intuition, read body language and emotions, determine if you are an “empath” and how to avoid absorbing other people’s stress. You will be taught how to tell the difference between intuition and fear, recognize what blocks intuition, and use your intuition to surrender obsessive relationships and unavailable people. Book signing after event.

Judith Orloff, MD is author of the national bestseller The Power of Surrender and offers the CD audio program Becoming An Intuitive Healer.

Workshop: The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People and Empathic Healers to Thrive

Sensitive people and empathic healers must learn to keep their hearts and intuition open without burning out. This workshop will teach you how to embrace the gifts of empathy in all situations, including patient care—without experiencing compassion fatigue or exhaustion. The secret is to learn to embrace your gifts and nurture and protect your sensitivities.


What is the difference between having empathy and being an empath? “Having empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain,” says Judith “But for empaths it goes much farther. We actually feel others’ emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have.” In this workshop, based on Dr. Orloff’s new book The Empath’s Survival Guide, you’ll learn invaluable tools to help sensitive people of all kinds—health care practitioners, parents, teachers, healers, and those involved with service, to develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world—while fully embracing the empath’s gifts of intuition, healing, creativity, and compassion.

This practical, empowering workshop will support empaths as well as everyone who wants to develop their sensitivities and empathy to become more caring people in an often insensitive world. Whether you’re an empath who absorbs other people’s stress, a highly sensitive person, or simply someone who wants to live a more open-hearted life without burning out or experiencing compassion fatigue—this workshop is for you. It’s for the loved ones of sensitive people who want to become more supportive of them.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The top ten traits of an empath
  • The connection between empathy and intuition
  • How empathy can enhance your relationships
  • Protection techniques and meditations to guard your energy
  • How to read people without taking on their emotional issues or pain
  • How to stop absorbing other people’s stress
  • How to be a sensitive person or healer without experiencing compassion fatigue
  • How to develop your gifts as an empath
  • How empathy can be used to heal and enhance energy medicine

Judith Orloff, MD is author of the new book The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People to Thrive and the Audio program “Essential Tools for Empaths.” Dr. Orloff is an empath herself, and is on the clinical psychiatric faculty at UCLA. She has a private practice in Los Angeles where she specializes in treating empaths and sensitive people. A New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Orloff synthesizes the pearls of traditional medicine with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, energy, and spirituality.
