Topics may include energy medicine techniques, qigong, ho’oponopono, shamanism, Ayurveda, sound healing, and so on.

Track 5

Practices for Higher Consciousness

This track focuses on practices that help raise consciousness. These may or may not include formal energy psychology techniques.

Conference Workshop Levels

Workshop Level: Introductory (new to energy psychology)

Workshops labeled Introductory  teach the basics. This level is for those who are new to energy psychology. If you are new to the field, we strongly recommend attending these learning labs, as they have been specially designed for all professionals who are new to energy psychology. These are A1, B1, C1, E1 and F1.

Workshop Level: All

Workshops labeled All  presuppose a basic knowledge of energy psychology, but do not require a great deal of energy psychology exposure/experience to understand. For example, an All workshop focused on meridian tapping and eating disorders might teach the basic EFT recipe as well as the specific application to the issues presented with eating disorders.

Workshop Level: Intermediate-Advanced 

Workshops labeled Intermediate-Advanced  presuppose considerable knowledge and experience with energy psychology. For example, an Intermediate-Advanced  workshop on the use of EFT with eating disorders would not teach the basic EFT recipe. It would assume that the attendee knows this information and would focus more on the specific application to the issues presented with eating disorders.
