The Foundation of Working With Subtle Energies: The Risks and Rewards of Developing Intuition

Time: At Your Convenience


Pre-Recorded Online  Webinar Series with Emma Bragdon, PhD

Intuition (aka psychic experiences) that allow us to perceive subtle energies are usually considered “anomalous”, “noetic”,  “mysterious”,  “powerful” and “scary”–in the USA.  Speaking about them makes people often feel anxious and fear their mental status may be called into question.  Highly intuitive medical doctors and nurses who are esteemed as extraordinarily successful in their work may even shy away from sharing in words how it is they seem to “know” what their patients need without looking at any observable measures.

Being highly intuitive and/or seeing/feeling subtle energies in Brazil is recognized as a potential sign that this person may have gifts in facilitating others in recovering or improving health.  Those with abilities can easily get ongoing training and join a support group for study and practice to harness their abilities.

This course introduces a way we can more easily speak together about the territory of developing intuition.  The presentations are seasoned with wisdom from Brazil’s Spiritist practices as well as the Bhagavad Gita to give a trans-cultural perspective on intuition and mediumship. We approach developing intuition emphasizing its positive potentials as well as the risks and the demands of assuming a role that might be labeled as psychic medium/ healer/or sensitive.

Your Take Home:

  • Get a clear map of the territory and thus be able to make more informed personal decisions about your motivation and direction in developing your own gifts/ intuition
  • Know the ‘rules of the road’ in negotiating this territory safely so you don’t lose your mental equilibrium, your ethics, or both
  • Understand how you might want to integrate medical intuition into your work and your personal life
  • Enhance your discernment about best uses for yourself and others
  • More fully integrate your experiences of being with psychic healers and mediums in the past
  • Comprehend the benefits and risks of focusing on these phenomena
  • Assess the ethical considerations/ power dynamics involved
  • Obtain appropriate resources for developing your intuition
  • This course is a pre-requisite for an online support group for intuitive health providers working with clients to help clear blockages of a subtle nature.  This will be facilitated online by Emma Bragdon in the future.
