medical intuition

Date/s: Sat 14 + Sun 15 Nov Time/s: 9.30am to 5pm
Location: Awareness Institute Duration: 2 days
Pre requisites: Meditation 1-3 or equiv regular practice Facilitator/s: Rebecca Mayhew
Cost: $375

Are you an energy worker or intuitive that wants to have a deeper understanding of the influences within us that create our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing?
The body is a physical manifestation of what is happening inside yourself and pain is it’s way of expressing it’s disconnection from being whole and healed. Our bodies hold on to our experiences, thoughts and belief systems which can then create emotional and mental stress. By holding onto that emotional and mental stress, we may then bring on all the physical responses we have to that stress. The body is a reflection of our internal unconscious emotional and mental secrets that we may not have been ready to look at until now.
Medical intuition is the art of learning how to develop your intuition to understand what the potential emotional, mental and energetic reasons are for the pain we feel within ourselves. Then through understanding and releasing those internal negative influences, you give the physical body its best chance to heal itself holistically.
This course will explore many different intuitive techniques to discover and release those hidden emotional and mental stresses. We will also use Mediumship and channeling techniques to connect with spirit guides, angels and ascended masters to help us deepen our understanding of those stresses and create harmony within ourselves.
By understanding and freeing ourselves of pain on all levels, we create divine healing flow within ourselves and realign to our greatest emotional, mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing. This vital divine flow then creates our greatest potential to be in our full purpose and be abundant on all levels. You become the author of your own soul.

Please note this workshop does not enable medical diagnoses or for students to be able to provide any treatment advice.

 past lives and spiritual healing

Date/s:  Sat 17 + Sun 18 Oct + Sat 31 Oct Time/s: 9am to 5pm
Location: Awareness Institute Duration: 3 days
Pre requisites: none Facilitator/s: Heidi Drieschner
Cost: $545

This course is for you if you are drawn to understanding yourself on a deeper level. If you ever wondered if there is a tool to help unlock why you’re keeping yourself back from being exactly who you are meant to be. We all develop layers of baggage as we go through life, which can over time start to cloud over us and hold us back & sometimes we just can’t pinpoint why. If you’d like to move on & free yourself from old patterns, this course introduces you to key tools in spiritual regression.

You might know on one level what you need to do but for some reason just can’t get there-the key is that the conscious mind (what you’re aware of) and your unconscious mind (what you’re not aware of) often aren’t in alignment.  This workshop introduces you to regression techniques to help release any spiritual blocks so that you’re in true alignment with what your soul is trying to express & learn in this life. If you’re a seeker and would like to find out answers to long standing questions or reconnect with your soul’s purpose, this course is for you.

You will explore:
* simple regression techniques to connect easily with the unconscious mind
* clearing stress & reclaiming your personal power
* learning & integrating spiritual gifts from the past
* energy healing tools
* accessing soul insights

If you’ve ever wondered why you’re here, why you are in the relationships you are, your family circumstances, this course will assist to start the healing process for patterns in your life.  This course includes theory & demonstration of regression techniques, and plenty of experiential exercises, support notes & further reading.

Whether you are wanting to clear some of your old baggage, or would like to use these techniques to guide your own clients in healing, this course gives you the tools and practical skills that you need.
