Donna Eden and David FeinsteinEnergy Medicine is based on the understanding that any physical, mental, or behavioral problem has a counterpart in the body’s energies and can be treated at that level. Every conceivable health problem, psychological challenge, or dysfunctional habit can be improved if not overcome by intelligently shifting the energies in the body that are maintaining that condition. This extends from treating cancer or multiple sclerosis to losing weight to increasing vitality and improving performance. And in the process, we have the ability to become more consciously, intimately, and joyfully involved in the deepest workings of our physical body, a journey that extends down to our soul.

Many people around the world are finding Energy Medicine to be a powerful gateway to healing, using what we already possess: our subtle energies! Energy Medicine recognizes energy as a vital, living, moving force that determines much about health and happiness. In Energy Medicine, energy is the medicine, and energy is also the patient. Energy heals the body by activating the body’s own natural healing resources. And the body’s energies are healed by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance.

Mehmet Oz, MD, chief of cardiology at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, emphasizes that: “The last great frontier in medicine is Energy Medicine.” This frontier is based on our body’s abilities to heal and reach optimum health and vitality by keeping its energies flowing and in balance. If allopathic measures become necessary, Energy Medicine has been shown to be highly effective at supporting the healing process as a complimentary practice.

This is not a new concept. While Donna has introduced many to the powers of activating their own healing energies, she also honors practices which have existed for millennia. Donna’s techniques hail primarily from her own experiences during her decades as a healer, but they also extend into healing traditions such as acupuncture, yoga, kinesiology, and qigong.

The basic premises explaining how these very simple techniques are so powerful when overcoming illness and maintaining vibrant health are laid out in Donna’s classic book, Energy Medicine. Energetic flow, balance, and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging, pinching, twisting, or connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; by tracing or swirling the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways; through exercises or postures designed for specific energetic effects; by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies. (See sample techniques, next page.)

Sharing the gift

Donna’s clairvoyant gift of being able to visibly discern the body’s energies has been a tool for her to navigate her world. She drew upon that wisdom to help her own body heal through many health challenges in her 20s and 30s, including MS. Since then, she has dedicated her life to helping people around the world understand the language in which she has become so proficient over the years.

Donna has spent the last 35 years working with more than 10,000 clients and teaching countless others around the world how to work with the body’s subtle energies. She does this by lovingly guiding and reminding everyone that energy is the language of the body, and that by working with our body’s subtle energies, we are building vibrant bridges from the energetic memory of primordial times to today’s fast-paced world. Our energetic systems can be taught to evolve and, thus, our physical bodies.

In a 2010 interview with Jana Messing, Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner and editor for InnerResources magazine, Donna spoke of her dedication to sharing this work:

“I passionately want more and more students to become teachers and spread the word far and wide so that people have the power in their own hands to heal themselves and so we can all heal one another. I hope that this will spread so far that people rely on Energy Medicine before ever reaching for pharmaceutical medicines or going to see a doctor. They will know when it is actually necessary for Western medicine interventions. And that is another part of what I want: that Western medicine partner more and more with Energy Medicine and other natural approaches to health care. Everyone will benefit.”

Teaching is the focus of Donna and David’s shared passion. The publication and success of their award-winning books Energy Medicine, Energy Medicine for Women, and The Promise of Energy Psychology have kept them on the road since 1998. At Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. this May, that dedication and enthusiasm will be palpable for participants who might be new to this type of work and for the experienced practitioner.

“Being on stage and seeing into the field of energy, I can look and see each person, and yet it’s a panorama of many energies—a group energy and the energy of many individuals,” Donna states in the interview with Jana Messing. “And I have a choice of where to focus. Sometimes, I will suddenly be drawn to someone that I feel I can help, and a moment later, that person is up with me on the stage and getting that help. And sometimes the unexpected happens.”

Donna’s and David’s presentations are rich with information and audience participation. Both possess a gift to fully engage the process of healing—for the individual and the collective. This stems from a deep desire to truly help and uplift the world.

Donna states, “I think love has shaped my philosophy of life … just the joy of being able to feel love and of being able to put myself in someone else’s shoes. Love and compassion have been my biggest guidance. Seeing people’s souls has been a religious experience for me. People blow me away.”

Donna and David’s forthcoming book, The Energies of Love, will demonstrate how to use Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology (e.g., EFT) to recognize our own energetic style, our partner’s, and how to bridge the two styles, navigating our way to greater harmony, deeper love, and an energy that supports both. Many of the principles apply to any close or impactful relationship.
