We are still high from the EEM Certification Program graduation ceremony last week in Phoenix. Many people have told us that it was more meaningful (and emotional) than their high school or college graduation! This brings the number of Certified Practitioners who have graduated from the two-year program over the past dozen years to nearly 1,400, and we could not be more pleased!
The next Foundations program (Year 1) starts this spring, in most cases in a community near you! We are enormously proud of our Foundations teachers. We see in the class that just graduated how well-prepared they were when they came into Year 2!
This issue features a fascinating use of Energy Medicine, by a high school teacher who is trained in EEM, which transformed the life of one of her students. We also triumphantly announce an achievement by our entire EEM Community as well as our happy upcoming participation in one of our favorite conferences. You will also learn, in the Energy Minute, a powerful technique for helping keep your thoughts clear and your mind sharp. Also, Donna will offer an Advanced Class in San Diego this summer. Set aside July 6-8 to join us!
Sending you our love and blessings,
Donna and David
Energy Healing in Action:
A Math Teacher Uses Cross-Over Techniques to Significantly Help a 17-Year-Old Student
By Karen Harris
Karen Harris is a math teacher and Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner. She shared with us the story of discovering the reason behind one of her student’s academic difficulties. Through asking a few pointed questions, it became apparent to her that this young man’s energies were homolateral (not crossing over).
Karen suggested a few very simple cross-over techniques and encouraged her student to follow through with the exercises each day. What came about in the following months shocked Karen and delighted her student! Here is what Karen had to share…
I had a new student enter my math class who was working very hard. He paid attention in class and did the work he was asked to do. He was very organized, neat, accurate with notes, etc. He was a model student. He had high marks (honours) in both academic English and Social Studies, and yet he was enrolled in the lowest academic math class he was able to take. Something was wrong. Something didn't fit. I pulled him out of class after watching him for a couple of weeks and asked him why he was in this math class.
"I can't do math!"
"What do you mean you can't do math?"
"I can't do math! I try and try and try and I just can't do math!"
I then remembered seeing him get extra help from the academic math instructor the semester before.
"What did you get in that math course last semester?"
Yeash! Maybe he can't do math! We went on in the conversation for a few minutes and then it hit me! I began to quiz him.
Scholarship Drive is Still On! Exciting Updates!
Being able to grant partial scholarships to students who have completed the Foundations Year and are eager to go on to graduate from the two-year EEM Certification program is one of the most heart-warming as well as heart-breaking things we do. This year we are running the Certification program in both the U.S. and Europe and expect at least 75 scholarship applications. We would love to offer scholarships to each and every applicant but, since we were only able to raise enough funds for 15 the previous year, we set a modest goal of 20 for 2018.
Well guess what? You, our EEM community, smashed that goal and generously donated enough for 28 scholarships, with some time still to go before the scholarships will be awarded! That means that twice as many people as last year who would not have been able to complete the program will be bringing a viable and successful alternative/complement to Western medicine to their communities.
That is, at least 28 communities will one-day be assured of having the healing benefits of a Certified Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner being in their midst because of this year’s drive! We are thrilled! You have already made a HUGE difference in helping us bring Eden Energy Medicine to those in need, and it’s not over yet.
Click here if you are moved to make a scholarship donation for this year's program. We would love to not have to turn anyone away due to funds. Thank you!!!
