  First core course, Intuition Medicine: Healing 1, begins Tuesday, Sept 10 2024!

Compatibility between The Academy and my own professional work

“I just completed the first two classes of 12-weeks and am loving this work and fascinated by the way in which it celebrates, explores, honors and supports similar energetics and dynamics that I work with in my work but in another way. The Academy is accessing and supporting healing on a very different level. I feel a compatibility between The Academy and my own professional work, both of which I deeply love. It is this compatibility that enables me to open fully into the AIM portal. There is a deep familiarity in my whole being with The Academy way of being in life. I have waited for this support since I came to earth in this lifetime but never had the mirroring to develop it as the core focus of my life’s journey. My heart and Essential Being now rejoice in this training. It is supporting me to include this aspect of my existence as a primary focus of my life.”

Meditation is the key to everything!!

“I met with my Integrative Harvard & UCSF & Dr Weil-trained specialist in brain and autoimmunity for a
check-up on my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosed in 2001. He was surprised at how well I was doing. I have been practicing Intuition Medicine® and the daily meditations daily for a year and told him this is the medicine that has saved me and my brain. Meditation is the key to everything!!”

Helped me change my energy and I daresay raise my vibration

“Two of the pillars in my life are my spiritual journey, and holistic wellness. I hope to always be working with mentors and teachers on these two fronts. The Academy of Intuition Medicine® is, in my estimation, the best possible — and most integrated — offering available to me at this point in my journey. Already, Healing I and Healing II have helped me change my energy and I daresay raise my vibration. I’m more solid in the world, better able to operate from my heart, and better able to honor myself and others. For the first time, I feel like I have a viable way of addressing a long-diagnosed health condition. I consider Dr. McCartney’s book Body of Health: The New Science of Intuition Medicine® a very important piece of work and have worn my copy out.”

Simple and powerful tools have helped me unwind patterns

“I am a graduate of the Master Certification in Intuition Medicine® (MIM) program has been life altering. I have been on a spiritual/ emotional/ physical healing journey for as long as I can remember and MIM gave me access to the information, tools, practices, and spirit wisdom needed for by spirit to be more fully in my body in the present moment. These simple and powerful tools have helped me unwind patterns of trauma, anxiety, anger, and control, enabling me to move through the world with ease, grace, clarity, and confidence. My days open and close using my tools in contemplative meditation. I use my Intuition Medicine® tools throughout the day to maintain or return to a sense of grounded presence in which my spirit is fully inhabiting my body and I am operating from a place of spiritual integrity.”

Tools that have changed my life

“The Academy of Intuition taught me tools that have changed my life. I use the tools daily and I finally feel back to my childlike self after years of accumulating baggage, fear, sadness, and negative energy. What makes this place special is that they don’t heal you, they teach you how to heal yourself. The teaching staff is extraordinary, and they hold an incredible container for safe yet deeply transformative inner work.”

What I’ve been searching for

“Everything I have learned so far from the 18-weeks of core classes has had more of an impact on my health — mentally, physically and spiritually than any other type of healing modalities I have tried for over the last three decades — yes I was one of those thousands of women diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, unexplained infertility and you guessed it... Lyme disease, severe depression and excruciating and debilitating anxiety. I had the most transcendent moment a few weeks ago when it finally hit me that THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR ALL THIS TIME. It was always there inside of me but was dormant as I was too afraid of it or had people devalue this beautiful healing intuition and connection with the universe that I possess. I can’t tell you how many times I have cried either during class listening to others share the same experiences I have had or listening to the lectures and reading BOH and all the class notes you send. I am now confident that I am not ‘weird’ or ‘too sensitive and moody’ as my family has branded me! I now can embrace and finally love myself and best of all heal thy self. I can literally feel the healing beginning... I love it and crave more!”

Eye-opening experience

“When I began the Academy 3 months ago, I knew it was going to be an eye-opening experience but I couldn’t possibly have been prepared for how much my life would shift in just a few weeks. After the first class, I began to sit in meditation daily — sometimes multiple times a day, always for at least 5 minutes first thing in the morning. Before the first class I never formally chose to meditate and had a really hard time calming the chatter in my head. I still struggle with this, but the daily practice has been life changing. I started with using your MP3 guided meditations and I absolutely LOVE it all.”

Lighter, more joyful, less fearful

“I am at mid-term in the Academy program. Looking back, I realize that when I arrived at the first Academy course I was walking through the world with pain and agitation. It is crazy how much energetic baggage I was carrying around with me. Putting down and unpacking that baggage piece by piece with the tools we have learned at the Academy has been life changing. For me ease and grace means spending less time in my analyzer and more time listening to the voice of my spirit. It means operating from a place of compassion versus a place of empathy and it means releasing fears that are not healthy and rooted in present time. I feel lighter, more joyful, less fearful, less anxious, more spacious, less judgmental and altogether much freer and full of myself than I did at the start of the program.”

Universe/universal consciousness

“With the Academy teachings, I have tools available to me that help me manage difficult things that come up, therefore I feel like I have some control in the present moment which alleviates anxiety. Though I also know I don’t, and never will, have complete control over anything and this is as it should be. I am held by the universe/universal consciousness which is greater than little me. My soul is guiding me through this lifetime, and all is happening exactly as it should. The more I allow, the more everything flows.”

The power of the Academy tools

“I have been seeing complementary and alternative healers for the last 20 years. I started wearing an Oura ring to track my sleep about a year ago. HRV is a measure of autonomic stress and an HRV below 30 puts an individual at higher risk for a heart attack or stroke. When I first started wearing the ring in January of 2021, my HRV averaged 16. That was shocking to me given my pristine diet and lifestyle and my commitment to exercise. As I’ve gone through the Academy my HRV has gotten consistently higher. Throughout the summer when I was utilizing the meditation recordings twice per day my HRV was consistently in the upper 30s. On nights when we did meditations in class where we calibrated our chakras I've reached HRVs as high as 90. The numbers speak for themselves with regard to the power of the Academy tools.”

Powerful energy medicine

“The teachers lead such beautiful meditations and always follow with interesting discussions and guidance. Whenever I felt like I wasn’t getting something, practicum always made me feel better. It's great to have such a supportive community. Yes, I feel so lucky to have met such beautiful humans! My TAs and tutors have taught me so much, and I am always amazed by how powerful energy medicine is. I love how everyone has a different way of doing things, and every single one of them has been patient, compassionate and present.”

Deep dive into mindset and healing my shadow/trauma

“I am one year into the master program and thus far has been such a powerful journey... excited to continue the journey and to witness the unfolding of what’s to come in 2023. For the past couple months I’ve been deep-diving into mindset work and healing my shadow/trauma. I’ve has some very deep insights about myself that have been extremely uncomfortable to look at. I can finally see the areas that need attention and that need to be healed. And as uncomfortable as the look inside has been it has also brought me a lot of clarity and understanding. I attribute my ability to look in these dark places to the healing work done thus far in the program. I am ready for whatever comes next... and welcome the highs and the lows. I have such deep gratitude for this program and the teachings. Thank you!”

Like energetic childbirth!

“We are only halfway through this course and I already feel completely transformed. There have been moments when it felt as if a herd of bison were running through my soul. The energetic shifts are so powerfully palpable at times it almost feels like energetic childbirth! I am grateful for this work and this journey and I'm excitedly looking forward to the rest of this program!”

A deeper sense of self

“The Academy of Intuition Medicine® provides a thoughtful container for us to explore our unique intuitive abilities and discover how to tune into this guiding element. Through experiential activities, meditations and discussions we are supported in studying different energetic systems and learning methods for working with energies. The results are a deeper sense of self, increased spiritual awareness and greater understanding of the complex world of energy.”

Journey of safety and integrity

“Thank you, Dr. McCartney, you’ve created such a beautiful body of work that
is truly metamorphic. I am becoming a whole new being. I especially appreciate how you’ve designed this journey with such attention to detail, safety and integrity. It is an honor and privilege to learn from you.”

Life enhancing experience

“The Academy master certification program was a life enhancing experience in so many ways that I couldn’t begin to count them all. Francesca once described herself as a spiritual mechanic. Twenty plus years later, I'm still employing the tools and lessons daily in all walks of life. Grounding, auras, chakras, spirit guides, healing others, prosperity consciousness ... thank you Academy for enabling me to walk through the world with ease and grace.”

Framework for spiritual and personal growth/healing

“The Academy of Intuition Medicine® provides a framework for spiritual and personal growth/healing that in my experience is unparalleled. After completing the advanced studies at the Academy, I pursued other areas of interest (Reiki, Healing Touch and many others) and it never ceased to amaze me how many classes were taught without emphasizing the critical practice of grounding and managing one’s energy which is essential in healing work.”

Class structure fostered a safe and immersive learning environment

“Having completed Healing I and II, I can honestly attest that the Academy of Intuition Medicine®; is a special and unique learning institution owing to its fantastic founder and dedicated tutors who are kind, competent, and generous with their time. I appreciate the unique teaching modality and class structure. I found the progression of the course to be systemically grounded and healthy as we were first taught how to manage, and recognize our energy system to heal ourselves in H-I, then introduced to energies outside our bodies in H-II to further facilitate healing. The class structure (combination of lecture, meditation, lab, panel discussion, and coaching from teaching assistants) fostered a safe and immersive learning environment. Although I always have been a person who is aversive to experiential learning, I now know the crucial importance of lab sessions because there is no other way to learn to intuit energy indeed other than through experiential learning.”

Learning support of the drop-in weekly Practicum...very beneficial

“The Academy teachers are all so compassionate and generous with their time in tutoring students. And combining the live class with the second learning support of the drop-in weekly Practicum was a very beneficial combination for me, especially having been on Zoom I can receive support on the lab experiments. So that was a winning combination!”

Profound Support

“I just completed the first half of the Master Certification program in Intuition Medicine®. The tools I’m learning go beyond any definition of “intuition”: these are life skills. I’m learning how to be a happier, healthier, more empowered human being in ALL areas of life. Most impactful and surprisingly, I’m discovering a level of self-love and self-acceptance that I didn’t know was possible. This is one of the most powerful and effective programs I've ever experienced. The teachings and community of support are profound.”

Transform before my eyes

“I watched my friend get out of depression from working with a MIM Alum. I saw her transform before my eyes and gain a better understanding of herself, learn the tools to dissolve blocks in front of her and regain back confidence and joy. She had never done talk therapy and I am not sure if talk therapy would have been as effective and efficient for her as it was for her to do energy work.”

Learning to hold and ground one’s energy

“The Academy program brilliantly and methodically moves through a series of modules, each building upon the previous, that lay the foundation for understanding and integrating many aspects of spiritual and healing modalities. At the core of each module the principle of learning to hold and ground one’s energy is emphasized, thus allowing the student to be centered and focused and to truly integrate the information that is presented. The experiential learning of practicing healing and energy techniques in class combined with lectures and focused meditations each week allows for students to build and expand their knowledge base and understanding of each principle and technique presented. In summary, I feel that no matter what your level of experience you will leave this program with a more expanded, solid foundation which will prove invaluable whether used for yourself as daily practice or on others in a professional capacity.”

Best investment I ever made for myself

“I thank the Academy for introducing me to tools and practices that are helping me to heal lifetimes of karma, energetic blueprints and old lenses of seeing my life and this world. Dr. McCartney has done a brilliant job of pulling together sacred wisdom and combining it with data backed tools and practices that create meaningful change in one’s life. This is the best investment I have ever made for myself, and I would highly recommend the program.”

— Nurse Practitioner

The program is thorough, beyond brilliant and it works

“The training at the Academy is the ultimate in healing at the beginning, the intermediate, and the advanced level. The toolbox that Dr. McCartney has created, the community that has been formed and the healing that is offered is by far the most in depth and support available anywhere. Personally, I am grateful forever that I have learned to be in my body, not an easy job really, and I have learned tools that I trust working with others. The program is thorough, beyond brilliant and it works. The point here is that it holds Divine Energy that holds you — it takes a village — this is a village; it is of the heart — and the heart heals.”

Multidimensional beings who are always evolving

“I am an alumna from the Master class of 2005. The Academy program changed my life and I felt it opened me up to my path in life. In 2023, kundalini once again surged with revolutionary force through my life (which is what originally brought me to the Academy in 2003), and my spirit brought me back to the Academy. I have been shown that the Academy is my spiritual home, where I am at ease within a positive, supportive community. I restarted the program and it became apparent that with each meditation, a panel, or rewatching class as a video, there was always some little gem, some key piece, or some new layer that was revealed. As much as I would have wanted to have a “one and done” experience, spirit work doesn’t appear to work that way. For one thing, integrating such powerful work into the body and mind seems done most easily and gracefully in small doses, with trust that what isn’t gleaned this time around will be shifted in the next day, week, season, or year. And secondly, we are multidimensional beings who are always evolving. I have learned to surrender to what I call my Highest Healing Path, and it has continued to show me the way. This work is solo work, each of us must follow our path alone, yet the Academy community and tools offer companionship and light for the journey.”

The learning and tools becomes one’s own...the curriculum is masterful.

“I am age 80 and have studied Human Consciousness my whole life. Thank you, Francesca, and the teachers at the Academy, for the skillful tools you have given me, much more beneficial than years of therapy. The exciting and effective thing about what, and how, you teach is that the learning and tools becomes one’s own. The curriculum is Masterful.”
