Eden Energy Medicine at Mountain Light Healing

Leveraging a comprehensive collection of Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) resources, we offer private consultations, experiential workshops, and full-day foundational energy-medicine classes (EM 101/102) approved for continuing education by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).

Grid StructureIn our work with individual clients, we specialize in healing the energetic wounds created by physical and/or emotional trauma through repairing the skeleton of the energy body, the Basic Grid (click for a copy of Donna Eden’s Basic Grid Booklet). This advanced EEM technique is aimed at helping clients return to wholeness and remember who they are at a very deep level. This work tends to serve as an enabler for individuals to reclaim their true power and manifest profound changes in their lives.

Our experiential workshops focus on quick-and-easy energy-medicine techniques for releasing stress and overcoming common health and wellness challenges.

The foundational Vitality Booster class provides basic information about the field of energy medicine and how you can start boosting your vitality, resilience, balance, and overall health and well-being in less than 10 minutes per day.

We also offer a series of 60- to 90-minute workshops introducing a wide range of Energy-Medicine Self-Help Tools. Current topics include

Weekend Intensives

EM 101 and EM 102 are one-day classes taught sequentially that cover many of the key topics from Donna Eden’s award-winning book, Energy Medicine. The information you will gain from these two classes will help you feel and be your best and provide you with innovative, practical tools for home care as well as for enhancing any type of bodywork / healthcare practice.

EM 101 introduces basic concepts of energy medicine plus a variety of topics that are important for self-care and healing. You will learn the Vitality Booster Daily Energy Routine, that will have your energies humming in no time, and explore ways to feel more grounded and centered. EM 101 also teaches a mainstay of EEM—ways to access and balance the acupuncture meridians, the rivers of energy that vitalize our body and its systems.

EM 102 picks up where EM 101 leaves off and offers important techniques for managing stress and physical discomfort. Moreover, this class covers energy testing—an opportunity to dialogue with the energies flowing through the body, as well as two popular protocols (Quickie Energy Balancer and Brazilian Toe Technique) aimed at balancing and harmonizing the body’s energy systems.

Eden Energy Medicine Foundation, Structure, and Resources

Eden Energy Medicine is deeply rooted in the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and various native traditions. Moreover, it leverages applied-kinesiology concepts and techniques developed by the Touch for Health community and uses adaptations of selected Brain Gym® exercises in creating Donna Eden’s unique, innovative approach for working with the body’s energies.

Eden Energy Medicine recognizes nine primary, interrelated, subtle energy systems; they are

  • The Meridians (your body’s energy pathways)
  • The Chakras (spinning pools of energy)
  • The Aura (energies that surround)
  • Triple Warmer (energies that protect)
  • The Five Elements (the rhythms of your energy systems)
  • The Radiant Circuits (energies of harmony and joy)
  • The Electrics (the spark in your energy systems)
  • The Celtic Weave (the connective tissue of your energy systems)
  • The Basic Grid (the foundation of your energy systems).

Among these, the three most well-known systems are the acupuncture meridians—your energy-transportation system; the chakras—your subtle body’s energy centers, transformer stations, and energetic counterparts to the endocrine glands; and the aura—your body’s biofield.

Triple Warmer is a highly complex system; it is both a meridian and a Radiant Circuit, but also an independent energy system, governing the immune system, the fight, flight or freeze stress response, and the body’s survival and other habits.

The Five Elements (also known as Five Rhythms or Five Seasons) are represented by the metaphors of Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal, based on the TCM model. They provide a framework for understanding and working with chronic health issues, behavioral patters, and emotional challenges.

The Radiant Circuits (called Strange Flows or Extraordinary Vessels in TCM), the Electrics, and the Celtic Weave interact with all the other energy systems in a dynamic fashion. While they are independent energy systems, they permeate the energy body and provide integrating and supporting functions for the other energy systems.

The Basic Grid can be characterized as the skeleton of the energy body; it is the foundation of the other energy systems and the most solid of all. Grid energy has movement, but it does not flow like the meridians. While a meridian is like a river, a grid pathway is like a moat, a fixed channel. Grid energy moves very slowly and at a deep level.

Shock or trauma can damage the grid structure, disrupting one or more of the grid pathways. The damage resembles a roadway that has been cracked open by an earthquake. The grid typically does not repair by itself. While the grid energy is still present, it cannot flow along the broken pathway and bridge the gap, so the body’s energetic foundation is compromised. Various physical and emotional problems that seem to defy correction may trace to a disturbed grid pattern.

When the grid has been damaged, cloacal energy, a more fluid grid-support system, is activated along the broken grid pathwayssimilar to mobilizing additional white blood cells to combat an illness or injury in the physical body. Cloacal energy can jump the gap on the damaged grid pathway and provide a bridge, but it does not go deep enough to mend the damage at the foundational level. The grid itself needs to be repaired by a trained practitioner (EEM-AP), who can serve as a jumper cable to enable the segments of a broken grid pathway to reestablish a solid connection. When the grid is healthy and strong, all the body’s energies are supported.

In addition to the nine primary energy systems, Eden Energy Medicine works with many secondary systems, including Neurolymphatic Reflex Points, Neurovascular Reflex/Holding Points, the Assemblage Point, Vortexes, and the Vivaxis Field.
