What people are saying about Dr. E's Wellness Program:
"Wow! What a wonderful experience this class was!! My intention in joining was simply to lose weight. What actually happened was so much more amazing than that. The most awe-inspiring result (for a foodie like me) is the wonderfully freeing feeling of having broken free from cravings - that a healthy salad made with real foods holds the same (or even more) appeal than a steak and potato dinner. I NEVER thought I would arrive here. Ten pounds in six weeks in a painless transformation. And beyond just the changes in eating habits, the meditation techniques, the calming of self, the search for purpose... This was a joyful and soulful experience and I hope many more are privileged to participate in this journey with such a wonderful teacher!" ~ Nicole V.

Advanced Tui-Na, Manual Therapy, & Conscious Bodywork Course, w/ Dr. Edith Ubuntu
(an add'l optional practice day to be arranged as student interest dictates)
A distillation of Dr. Edith*Ubuntu's past decade's experiences and pearls in TuiNa, Bodywork, Manual Therapy, as well as intuitive and frequency healing, into a thoughtful, well-organized hands-on workshop series. This course is the essence of bodywork healing, for devoted students and practitioners, incorporating a detailed understanding of Human Anatomy, advanced Tui-Na/Bodywork therapy skills, together with a heart-centered and spirit-based approach that honors the unity of mind-body-spirit.
We begin with a solid foundation working with the physical body layer. TuiNa and manual treatment of the common orthopedic injuries are covered, with emphasis on hands-on demo and practice. Manual techniques for the treatment of orthopedic conditions and success working with the physical body layer serve as a solid foundation for practitioner confidence and clinical efficacy. Next we transition towards more subtle energetic layers, integrating intuition, intention, and meditative states together with the physical bodywork practice. The power of consciousness and intention are explored. Bodywork strategies for supporting patients' psycho-spiritual wellness are shared, with demonstrations and hands-on practice. Finally, we attune our awareness for higher vibrational frequencies of Energy, Light, and Information, opening to new possibilities of profound healing on all levels. The practitioner experiences his/her work as meditation, simultaneously aware of the physical, energetic, and vibrational states while working with his/her patients.
This CEU workshop is powerful, transformative, and unlike any other, offering a truly multi-dimensional holistic healing approach. It promises to supercharge your practitioner's toolkit, expanding your enjoyment and access to new realms of healing possibilities. Full course description and Registration Form (PDF) >>

Discover your Sacred Power Symbols - a visionary workshop for creative manifestation!
w/Intuitive Expressionist, Artist, Facilitator Deborah DeLisi
Two-Day Workshop: Sat OCT 19 and Sun OCT 20 2013
Join Intuitive Expressionist, visionary artist, and facilitator, Deborah DeLisi, as she guides us through the story of sacred symbols, both ancient and new. As patterns that represent the power of thought or energy, sacred symbols contain our understanding of the universe. We anchor our beliefs and information through them, and they are living energies and truths we uphold. Through interactive experiences and exercises, you will learn to create your own sacred symbol and intuitively interpret its meaning for you.
Enjoy a guided meditation where your sacred symbol and personal Mandala will be revealed to you, and that's where the real fun begins! Working with colored pencils and black paper, you will bring your vision to life!
Learn to discern personal messages from the symbols that we receive through meditation, and manifest through focused creativity. Become a true visionary and flow in the state of inspiration to create from within! Full workshop description on Deb DeLisi's website>> .
* Program Price = $197 early bird, $250 at the door.
