Energy medicine gives you a more holistic and self-empowering approach to healing — by not only addressing your body, mind, and spirit, but also by working with your emotions, past trauma, and even your relationships.
For thousands of years, energy medicine practitioners around the world have activated the body’s natural healing processes — through balancing Qi, healing touch, Ayurvedic medicine, shamanic practices, hands-on healing such as Reiki and Chinese reflexology, and many other techniques.
During The Energy Medicine & Healing Summit, you’ll discover how to take your health into your own hands (literally!) with today’s top energy medicine experts, health practitioners, and healers, who will guide you toward transforming your overall health from the inside out.
We're especially excited about this issue of Catalyst because it offers a veritable feast of articles and videos from the esteemed speakers in this summit. (We've never featured so many articles in one issue before!) So whet your appetite for energy medicine today with this cornucopia of insights and information, and then start digging in tomorrow with the first day of free summit video sessions!

Barbara Marx Hubbard, one of the evolutionary pioneers who inspired the founding and growth of Shift, has transitioned to the other side. She taught programs for thousands, collaborated with us on Birth 2012, and left a legacy of inspired, active evolutionaries in our community. We honor her for her inspiration to live a visionary, passionate, co-creative life, even well into her eighties. She helped all of us see our collective crises as the birth of a more beautiful future and to commit every fiber of our being to midwifing that birth. May her death be a transition into the unified field of love she described so eloquently.
Finally, we’d love to hear your answer to the question, What results did you get from combining Energy Medicine with Western medicine? To share your thoughts in our Facebook Page community, click here.
When all your energies are brought into harmony, your body flourishes. And when your body flourishes, your soul has a soil in which it can blossom in the world. These are the ultimate reasons for energy medicine — to prepare the soil and nurture the blossom. — Donna Eden
Hello, I'm Dondi Dahlin, and I am the host of the third annual Energy Medicine & Healing Summit. This is such a phenomenal summit. We have 38 speakers, experts in the field of energy medicine who are going to be teaching you how to be empowered with more vitality, joy, and health.
One thing that's different this year is it's video. So you get to watch the speakers, watch these experts with their sage advice, and their exercises, and their techniques that you can use to bring more health into your life. What would that be like if you had healing in your own hands to be able to help yourself if you had a stomachache, or a headache, or lower back pain, or to help a loved one, maybe your spouse or your kids, with anxiety or fear or stress. That's what you will be learning in this summit.
And if you have been in the field of energy medicine, you're going to be tickled at the A-list speakers that we have. And if you're new to energy medicine, you'll want to get out your notebook because there's going to be so much information. And in fact, I have a list here of some of the speakers we have this year and their topics. And I just want to tell you about some of them because these are such phenomenal people that I want you to learn from.

Life contains the full spectrum of experiences ranging from the most exquisite to the most difficult. Yet every experience has the potential to birth deeper wisdom, if we include it as part of the path of awakening.
Three years after a powerful awakening that changed the course of my life, I was brought to my knees with a serious spinal injury that seemed stubbornly unresponsive to allopathic or alternative treatment. I sensed that somehow, this was an important leg of the integration process, yet it took all my strength and resolve to harness this as part of my prayer to live the embodiment of Grace.

We are energetic beings, living in a world where energy is in constant exchange. The earth we walk upon is mostly empty space, but the energy field in its atoms keeps us from falling through into the underworld. Our bodies generate an energetic field, and rivers of energy flow through us as meridians, nadis, and shine out through our chakras.
I call this energy “charge,” as it’s a word we can all relate to, as in “having a charge about something.”
You might feel a charge of energy when someone interrupts or criticizes you. I can get pretty charged talking about politics these days. Others still feel a charge talking about their ex-partner or a past trauma. Or you might have so much charge about a new relationship that you barely eat or sleep.
Do you have experiences where you shut down or close your heart to protect yourself from pain? This action is a common defense mechanism for most who find themselves suffering, but living with a closed heart can prevent you from opening to the Divine and experiencing more love, connection, and happiness into your life. Closing your heart can also lead to more struggle, which is why I recommend heart chakra healing because it is a powerful way to release energy held in the spiritual center in the body.
Contraction and expansion simultaneously flow in the world of energetic molecules. Imagine the truth of the atomic world; electrons and protons circling your universe in an invisible hush of energetic flurry, creating everything in its wake. When subatomic particles constrict, our view narrows, allowing for clarity about where to go and how far to reach. After the constriction, we expand into a momentum of flowing energy, unleashing a new, exciting and satisfying version of life.
Mention the word sex and eyes widen and ears perk up. The strong reaction the subject arouses reflects the spicy nature of sexual energy. We may be at the gym feeling tired and depleted, but if someone we find attractive starts working out next to us, our energy level is suddenly boosted. That energetic intensification represents the activation of our Lower Dantian (energy center below the navel), which holds our sexual energy in reserve.
We all experience life challenges. Whether it is a divorce, supporting aging parents, loss due to death, changing jobs, illness or relocating, it is inevitable that we will all experience significant changes as we move through life. Sometimes we struggle with our day-to-day life experiences such as supporting a family, managing finances or handling the constant barrage of information from various media sources.
In today’s world, it’s very easy to get caught up in the drama and confusion that seems to be circling the world. Sometimes people think that the world is going down so bad that we may not make it through another year! And yet, beautiful babies are being born that are so enlightened, produce and flowers are blooming like never before, the rain came back to California, and the American people are being given an opportunity to think and feel for themselves in these major times of change.
Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States and autism-related costs average $60,000 a year per family. There is no known cure for Autism.
Parents of children with autism are constantly on the lookout for a gentle and safe approach that will help their child improve speech, cognitive abilities and overall health. Just hearing their child say a few more words or make a sentence, give a hug, or look into their eyes can be a very big deal for many moms and dads.
Marie is an energy medicine healer who is the perfect bridge between conventional and holistic medicine. She was raised in a family that appreciates preventive medicine, including the importance of eating nutritional organic foods and taking healthy supplements. Yet, it was during her work as an oncology nurse that she discovered and developed her skills as an energy medicine practitioner. The hospital turned out to be the ideal place to understand the energetic relationship between health and disease. To watch the video, click here.
One of the most missed pieces of the health puzzle when it comes to understanding the cause of illness and symptoms, (and how to get well without medication or supplements) is understanding the pivotal role emotions play in the creation of symptoms. Whilst it may initially sound crazy that emotions can turn into physical symptoms, in this video I will clearly show you how this happens! To read more and watch the video, click here.

Here are ways you can support the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe in their quest to restore their federal recognition through their 501(c)3 nonprofit chairperson organization, California Heritage: Indigenous Research Project (CHIRP). We invite you to take this small step to begin to restore the rightful place of our nation's first peoples.

Our friends at Moon + Leaf exist to create a culture in which women love, honor, and listen to our bodies. We live in a society that idolizes productivity and achievement, often at the expense of our health. This is especially true during our periods, when cramps and exhaustion have us reaching for the painkillers and extra cup of coffee to get through.
Moon + Leaf creates CBD products for period relief, using the power of plants to work with our bodies instead of fighting against them. Their products create the opportunity to slow down, connect with our bodies, and turn our periods into a ritual of self-love. Unlike other companies, they combine CBD with a blend of organic plant extracts that effectively support relief from cramps, achiness, stress, and tension.
Mark Bradford, a contemporary African-American artist, is best known for his multimedia abstract paintings whose laborious surfaces hint at his excavation of emotional and political terrain. “For me, it's always a detail — a detail that points to a larger thing,” he observed of his process. “I start to imagine what it points to, and that's when my imagination really goes.”
Bradford studied at the California Institute of the Arts, graduating with an MFA in 1997. His work often displays the atrocities and struggles of race and poverty, as seen in his site-specific installation “Help Us” (2008). In the work, he displayed pieces of wood salvaged from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina on top of Los Angeles building, spelling out “HELP US,” recalling the desperation of hurricane survivors on New Orleans rooftops.
In 2017, Bradford represented the United States pavilion at the Venice Biennale with his work, “Tomorrow is Another Day.” His works are held in collections at Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others.
