The Genie in Your Genes    audio Listen to Dawson Interviewed on The Genie in Your Genes

Epigenetic Medicine is a new form of therapy destined to upend many of the certainties of today's medical and psychological practice. Epigenetics (epi=above, epigenetic=control of genes from above or outside the cell) is a new science less than ten years old. It shows that genes are activated or deactivated by many factors originating outside the cell and even outside the body. These factors include childhood nurturing, belief, spirituality, prayer, visualization, and the quality of our social network. It seems incredible that our cells could be conditioned daily by these epigenetic influences. Yet the most cutting-edge scientific research shows that intention literally affects the conformation of the DNA molecule. Our consciousness is affecting our bodies every day. Large-scale scientific studies have shown that success in resolving emotional trauma can lower our chances of getting cancer, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. In the words of Dawson Church, who coined the term Epigenetic Medicine and identifies an Epigenetic Health Cycle in his new book The Genie in Your Genes, "psychology is physiology;" what we believe and think has an immediate effect on our bodies. In this presentation, he shows how we can turn this knowledge to our advantage, engaging powerful epigenetic processes through the quality of our emotions and thoughts, and the nature of our intentions.

"A new medicine is arising—one which embraces spirituality and consciousness as emphatically as conventional medicine has dismissed them. For a look at this medicine of the future, Soul Medicine is invaluable."

—Larry Dossey, M.D., bestselling author of Words That Heal

Soul Medicine   
Built around Dawson Church's authoritative book Soul Medicine (co-authored with Norm Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.), this presentation summarizes the exciting new scientific studies are giving us proof of the amazing healing effects of belief, prayer, meditation, and spiritual practice. The field of energy medicine is exploding, and many of its best practices are being merged with mainstream medical treatments in the form of "integrative medicine." This workshop examines some of those scientific experiments in depth, and points out new trends in healing that will utterly transform medicine as we know it in the course of the next decade. It ends with a demonstration of two remarkable methods, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Attunement, and gives participants some practical tools they can take home and use on their healing journeys.

"Skillfully interweaves ancient wisdom, spiritual healing, and leading edge science in defining a credible foundation for the emerging practice of energy medicine."

—Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Bestselling author, The Biology of Belief

The Energies of Love

How do you keep love vibrantly alive for years or decades in an intimate relationship? What does the energy field of a loving relationship look like, and how can you induce that energy and keep it flowing freely in your heart and home?
Emotional self-management is the key to relationship success, and this presentation shows you how to use the marvelous tools of energy psychology to create positive emotions. They work even when your partner is crazy or numb. For unless you're in relationship with a saint, your partner has unhealed aspects of the self—blind spots, ancient wounds, childhood traumas—that can inexplicably burst into the relationship and wreak havoc. Or, if your partner represses those wounds, the result is dead spots that can turn a normal person into an emotional zombie.
The key to success is not getting your partner to change, for that may never happen. Instead, the key to success is handling your own reactions to their behavior with energy psychology. If your partner can be crazy, or numb—but you stay in the zone of "I'm fine" (while still offering compassion and understanding)—then you have taken the most powerful step imaginable toward relationship success. If your partner's triggering can no longer trigger you, then there's at least one adult in the room, and you're on the path to sanity—and intelligent and conscious partnership.
Presenter Dawson Church. Ph.D., has experience with many kinds of therapy. He has found that some techniques have a much higher success rate than others (while working very quickly). In this workshop, he demonstrates methods from the field of Energy Psychology and Energy Medicine that can quickly defuse the most difficult time bombs in the average relationship. Unlike talk therapy, energy methods work directly on the body, take only seconds, an possess an impressive scientific pedigree grounded in gene studies, epigenetics, endocrinology, electromagnetism, and neurology. 
Spend this session with one of the top international experts in this field, the author of the book The Genie in Your Genes. Find out how you can identify the energy patterns underlying your interactions; then get the skills to to shift these patterns and transform your relationship immediately. You will leave the room a different person, with fresh horizons of relationship potential, than when you walked in.

 "Dawson’s presentations hold a whole room full of people spellbound. His talk represented the best information, and most heartfelt delivery, that I have been exposed to in many years."

—Eric Meyerson

Future Cures: Fast, Cheap and Effective     
Medicine and psychotherapy have changed radically in the last century. A major shift has been in the length of time healing processes are expected to take. Average hospital stays for some procedures are a third of the length they were twenty years ago. New noninvasive surgical techniques damage the body much less than the radical surgeries of old. In the field of alternative medicine, there are therapies that promise equally dramatic results. What are some of these, how do they work, and when do you use them? This seminar explores some of the most leading-edge applications, their origins, and possible causes for their effectivness. It goes into detail about one such therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT, and provides participants with some hands-on experience and simple summary techniques that they can take away with them.

 "Attending Dawson’s workshop was a fabulous experience. It was probably the best workshop I've attended in my life. It far surpassed any expectations I had going in. Thank you, this is absolutely life-changing material."

—Joan Draper, Psychologist, National Health Service
