Eden Method header  for e-letter

Here’s a fun question... who’s your favorite teacher? Chances are someone special popped into your mind (and heart!).

Maybe it was a beloved teacher who took you under her wing when you were a shy, lonely 1st Grader. Perhaps for you, it’s a spiritual teacher you met as an adult -- someone who elevated your worldview and your life. It might even be an Eden Energy Medicine Teacher who helped you find your way back to health and well-being.

So often, teachers are the unsung heroes of our lives, and it’s one of the big reasons why we’re dedicating this month’s newsletter to great teachers everywhere 🙂

To kick things off, we thought we’d share a bit about our favorite teacher of all time (article below). Given our different backgrounds, learning styles, and temperaments, you wouldn’t think we would both identify the same person as our greatest teacher. But we do. Hint: She’s a living legend, a bestselling author, scholar, philosopher, and leader of the human potential movement.

This newsletter was actually born out of the love for our own Eden Energy Medicine teachers. We have over 300 teachers sharing this work around the globe. They are beautiful ambassadors of our work - carrying forth our message of hope and healing with such intelligence, creativity, and heart. Thank you!

Here’s to all the wonderful teachers all over the globe committed to making the world a better place. We are so very grateful to all of you.

Our Favorite Teacher

Guess who?

Our greatest teacher asks questions that make you think in a whole new way – in a way you’ve never imagined. She opens your mind. When she makes a point, she can evoke all the mystical, magical, thundering feelings of an ancient civilization, transporting you to another time and place.

She might slip in and out of different voices and accents, or even languages. But, she doesn’t just slip into modern Spanish or French. She recites Rumi in ancient Persian or quotes Asclepius in the original Greek.

Energy Medicine in Action

Thank you, teachers, for caring for these precious little ones!

Read what happened when a kindergarten teacher discovered energy medicine and brought it to her class. She reported that the results were amazing for all the students, but especially one little boy.

The Best in The World!

What it Really Takes to Become an Eden Energy Medicine Fundamentals Teacher

From Australia to Arizona, Portugal to Scotland, we have exceptional Eden Method teachers all over the planet. But have you ever wondered what it takes to become an authorized teacher? The first thing to know is that Eden Method runs one of the most comprehensive energy medicine schools in the world, and becoming an Eden Method Fundamentals teacher is not for the faint of heart!

Our Level 1: Fundamentals teachers go through 2 years of live study including 8 intensive 4-day immersives . . . and that’s just the beginning. They also complete a year-long mentoring phase where they serve as an intern in 4 consecutive Level 1: Fundamentals classes. All teachers-in-training are also evaluated by mentors and class administrators at every step of their journey.

We go deep with our teachers, so they’re fully prepared to share the extraordinary healing power of Eden Method tools and techniques. In this way, every student can be confident that they’re learning from qualified, dedicated professionals.

Thank you to all our teachers for your dedication and support with our mission to raise the vibration of the planet, one person at a time!

 If you’d love to learn how to heal yourself (and your loved ones) from some of the best teachers in the world, Level 1: Fundamentals classes are now enrolling in multiple countries.

We Have a Survey Winner!!

Congratulations to Susan Lutes, our winner of a random drawing for free access to Donna’s upcoming advanced class on the Diamond Inlay, coming in June. (Susan, we’ll contact you in a separate email). Susan was one of over 300 people to share their thoughts on making our soon-to-be-released Eden Method membership site the best it can be. Thank you, Susan, and everyone who responded to the survey. Your answers were a joy to read!

The membership site is being designed with your feedback in mind and will be a wonderful place for us all to gather to share ideas and get support with leading a healthy life, grounded in energy awareness.

Putting Greater Focus on Research

A new approach to health care establishes itself first by successfully helping those who use it. A point comes, however, where systematic clinical trials and other forms of research need to be conducted if the wider health care community is going to take it seriously.

We’re honored and happy to share that Alexie Bennett has just joined us as the Research Coordinator (part time) for Eden Energy Medicine. Alexie will be helping us build a more solid evidence base on the efficacy of Eden Energy Medicine (click here to read the current “state of the art”). She’s looking forward to connecting with our community on the Energy Medicine Research Network Facebook page, so don’t forget to look for her there!

Alexie lives in England and has been studying EEM for 10 years. Watch Alexie’s intro video & read more about her here>>

You Heard it Here First!

Get Ready for an Exciting New Free Series

Our popular, free series on the Five Elements ended last month, and it’s time for a brand new topic...

Announcing our new 10-part series on Energy Psychology!

Energy Psychology is the umbrella term for a range of approaches that apply energy techniques to therapy and personal growth.

One of the most well-known among these is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), often simply known as “tapping.” This is a powerful tool that combines energy techniques with established psychotherapeutic methods to literally change patterns in the brain that maintain problematic emotions and behaviors.

By gently tapping on specific meridian endpoints, it is possible to overcome a whole host of challenges including breaking unwanted habits, releasing negative thought patterns, letting go of shame, anxiety and fear... and so much more.

Beginning with next month’s e-letter, our new Energy Psychology series will address an important aspect of energy psychology, from how to apply it to issues such as addiction to understanding how it works. These succinct articles will link to deeply insightful, well-researched journal articles and book chapters written by our own David Feinstein -- a respected clinical psychologist and leader in energy psychology.

Each piece in the series will help you understand the art and science of Energy Psychology, and you can look forward to an accurate understanding of this powerful, healing confluence of science, psychology, and energy medicine.

Staff Picks!

Our Staff Shares Their Favorite Teachers

We asked our staff to let us honor their favorite teachers in this issue. We were touched by their dedications:

  • Leslie Adams, my children, Dylan and Mark Adams. Taught me selflessness and strength to overcome any obstacle.
  • Linda Barba, my friend, Carrie Cento. Taught me to change my thoughts and to live in the possibilities.
  • Brittney Bass, my mother, Tracy Bass. Taught me that anything is possible if I believe in myself.
  • Karen Berry, my math teacher, Mrs. Allen. Taught me the power of positive thinking.
  • Carrie Cento, my 4th grade teacher, Ms. Dobbie. Taught me to dream big because there was a great, big beautiful world beyond my small town.
  • Dondi Dahlin, my drama teacher at Ashland Senior High School, Mr. Merryman. He trusted me to direct and choreograph entire productions with full casts and crews when other teachers didn’t trust me enough to pass a pop quiz. His confidence in me helped to shape who I am.
  • Roger Devenyns, my dad, Albert Devenyns. Taught me that you never know the full story behind people in need, so assume they really need it – even if you doubt it – because you never know. He was saved by the kindness of strangers in wartime and always paid it forward.
  • Lori Kats, my dad, Ron Kats. Taught me to do the job right the first time, don’t sweat the small stuff, and to always have 2 cold beer mugs in the freezer.
  • Andrea Malden, my piano teacher, Donn Rochlin. Taught me how to play it by ear.
  • Jeffrey McDonnell, I have had many great teachers in my life, but today I want to honor my grandmother Bernice who passed away in 1992. She gifted me the meaning of being loved unconditionally. When she held me in her arms as a child, there was no judgement or expectations of the kind of person I needed to be around her to be cherished. She loved me just for being me! And, I felt it in every cell of my body. Miss you grandma!!
  • Julie McDonnell, my husband Jeff. Taught me to trust and have confidence in myself.

Is there a teacher who touched your heart and maybe even changed your life? We'd love to hear from you on our Facebook page.
