Eden Energy Medicine

Eden Energy Medicine has been  developed over more than 40 years by Donna Eden and her group of teachers, who have helped to expand this work around the world. the EEM  represents  an integrative approach that expands upon principles and practices from therapeutic approaches as diverse as acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, therapeutic tai chi, yoga and other holistic modalities. 
Donna Eden
Donna Eden  was born with the ability to see the energy of the human body as clearly as you are seeing the letters in this text.
After personally discovering that it was possible to consciously direct her body's energies to heal herself from various health problems, including advanced Multiple Sclerosis, Donna Eden used this knowledge to help treat more than 10,000 patients, with the various health, physical and psychological problems, with extraordinary success rates.
In the last 40 years, and with the publication of the acclaimed book  Energy Medicine , has dedicated her life, along with her husband, psychologist David Feinstein, to teaching people who cannot see or feel energy naturally, that they too can learn to assess and balance their own energies as well like the  energies of family, friends and patients.
His infectious joy and skills as a therapist are legendary!
Today, Donna Eden is one of the world's leading authorities in the field of Energy Medicine. More than 100,000 people, both lay people and health professionals, have already attended his lectures and training, all over the world. 
However, more than 1,600 people have already been certified as Eden Energy Medicine therapists, coming from the most diverse countries,  many of them  without any previous ability to feel or see energies, sharing only a curiosity and a deep desire to learn to identify and balance the energy of their own body, as well as the energy of their family and friends, or that of their patients, in the case of Health professionals.
The model developed by Donna Eden allows anyone to learn simple, non-invasive and extremely powerful techniques to balance their energies and regain or maintain health.
Level 1: Fundamentals
"Energy Medicine brings vitality when we are tired, health when we are sick and joy when we are down." 
Donna Eden

Course Summary Level 1: Fundamentals

The Level 1: Fundamentals course  is a one-year educational program of in-depth study in the theoretical foundations and practical applications of Donna Eden's Energy Medicine.

The course is mandatory face -to-face and consists of four quarterly modules (sometimes called "classes") held over four extended weekends (starting on Thursday morning and ending on Sunday at the end of the day).

Each module has a specific curriculum of theoretical subjects that students learn to put into practice over the weekend. Classes consist of theoretical exposition, questions and answers, demonstrations and practical applications, and students practice the contents presented among themselves.

The classes of this course are usually small, so each student will have a personalized service, with plenty of time for demonstrations, sharing and discussion on the topics and practical application.  of the contents of each  of the modules.
Medicina Energética Portugal
The training will be held in English and Portuguese. The official course material is in English, but will be supplemented by translation into Portuguese of the most important parts, namely the assessment and treatment protocols. The written tests and the practical demonstration can be carried out in Portuguese or English.

After each of the modules, students have  three months to integrate what they learned. For this purpose, they carry out a written test and a practical demonstration, thus ensuring that they master the theoretical concepts and practical procedures of that module, being able to advance to the  next module.


Anyone can take this training. THE  Donna Eden's dream is for these tools to reach everyone, wherever they are, and regardless of their social or  professional.

There are also no prerequisites to complete the training. People who have never had contact with energy therapies can obtain results as good, or sometimes even better, than people already familiar with any of these modalities.


Generally, there are 3 types of target audience interested in this training:

  • Caregivers/general public:  Caregivers (fathers, mothers, siblings, children, grandparents, grandchildren...) are an important part of health care and can greatly benefit from the use of  methods they learn in Year 1, either to  themselves or for those in their care. Doing something as simple as the Daily Energy Routine has shown amazing effects on the health of many people around the world. Any person, in carrying out this training, learns  techniques of energy medicine that you can start using immediately, and that are very beneficial  to keep energies balanced and resilient .

  • Health professionals: Many health professionals, from  doctors, nurses, psychologists,  psychotherapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, osteopaths, naturopaths, acupuncturists, coaches,  massage therapists or  yoga instructors, to name just a few,  they feel frustrated and powerless with the tools at their disposal, and look for more natural and holistic ways to better help their patients. If this is your case, this training will greatly expand your therapeutic range. 

  • Future EEM Therapists : This year of classes is the foundation for students who wish to work professionally as EEM therapists.  Students who complete this 1st Year receive a Certificate of Participation that allows them to  move on to the 2nd Year and thus become Eden Energy Medicine Certified practitioners .

Regardless of the reasons and objectives that each student may have to start this training, at the end of the year, all of them  have a solid and integrated knowledge of the basic theoretical foundations and practical applications of  Donna Eden's Energy Medicine, being able to use this knowledge to evaluate and correct the energy imbalances that are at the base of health or disease, either in itself  themselves, whether with their relatives and friends, or with their patients, in the case of health professionals.

tuition fees

Tuition fees are paid in $ US dollars (conversion to € euros can be carried out)

The total tuition fee for the Level 1: Fundamentals course is US$4,380  (the value in Euros can be calculated but it always depends on the exchange rate, so there may always be fluctuations).

Note: This total amount includes the initial deposit of $350 that was made at the time of online application, which will be deducted from the Class 4 tuition fee.
options  of payment
Tuition payments can be made:
  • in a single moment.
  • spread over the academic year , one month before the start of each of the classes, namely:
    • Class 1:$1,095 USD through March 7th
    • Class 2:$1,095 USD through May 23
    • Class 3:$1,095 USD through August 8
    • Class 4:$745 USD through October 24th
Modalities  of payment
Payment can be made in dollars or euros:
  • Bank transfer
  • paypal
Financial support
If you need financial assistance for Level 1: Fundamentals , a good option may be to look for “Sponsors” who are available to contribute to your “Education Fund”.
As a student, you will learn techniques and treatment protocols in sufficient numbers and effectiveness to be able to start performing energy medicine sessions right after the first class. In fact, you will need people to be able to practice the protocols you learn in each of the classes. Finding family, friends or acquaintances who are willing to contribute financially in exchange for these sessions can benefit both parties.

For example, if you get 2 sponsors willing to receive a weekly energy medicine session at €25 per session, you have more than half of the fee paid. If you get 4 sponsors, double the amount. This arrangement has obvious benefits for all parties. They receive a unique service in Portugal at a reduced cost, and will be contributing to the personal and professional growth of someone they care about. Not only do you benefit from financial support, but you also have regular people to practice what you learn throughout the year, increasing your experience and confidence.
Personal note: it may seem a bit exaggerated to say that from Class 1 onwards students have enough tools to be able to carry out a session with a therapeutic impact, but the truth is that it is not. I am a Clinical Psychologist and I already had some clinical experience when I signed up for this course in 2013. After Class 1, I could only think of two things: 1) why didn't I learn half of the techniques this weekend at the University?, and 2) if this first class was already spectacular, I can't even imagine what's to come!

The tuition fee includes the basic material necessary to carry out the theoretical and practical training, namely:
  • the written theoretical material (originals in English and translations in Portuguese).

Common questions

I'm not a health professional and I don't have any experience or knowledge in Energy Medicine, can I sign up for the training?
Yes sure. Donna Eden's dream is for this knowledge to reach as many people as possible, so that each  can take responsibility for their own health. It is not necessary to have any special sensitivity or prior knowledge of working with energy to obtain results with Energy Medicine. The techniques we will use are simple to learn and  can be applied by anyone  who wish to increase their knowledge in the field of Energy Medicine and energy therapies.
I have a profession that takes up some time. Will I have time to do this training?
The formation  was designed with the aim of being able to accommodate people with the most varied lifestyles, especially people who already work. In this sense, each module is carried out over  4 days in a row, two of which are Saturday and Sunday. Although we think that the time spent  in training is minimal compared to the benefits it provides, it is important to realize that, upon returning home, the person will have to dedicate some of their free time to study and practice the materials they are learning.
Are the exams too demanding?
We don't really believe in exams, but we have to assess students somehow. The evaluation method chosen has two moments, a theoretical one, through the realization of a written test with consultation, at home, which is then  sent by email to the trainer. The second assessment stage is a demonstration of practical skills that, as a general rule, takes no more than an hour to complete. It can be carried out in person, if the person so desires, or through videoconferencing, over the internet.
Is the training too theoretical?
No, each module includes a  balanced distribution of time for teaching, discussion and practice, so it is both a class and an internship.  the modules  cover information  and techniques that were taught and developed by Donna Eden herself, always with the aim of  anchor the theory  with practice. During the training, you will also be  covered  professional issues such as ethics and clinical practice development.
I have a health problem. Can I take the course?
Definitely yes. Learning to use the techniques of Energy Medicine on oneself is the main objective of this first year. However, it is necessary to realize that this is a training course, not a therapeutic course. Although students experience profound healing and transformation throughout the year, the main objective of the course is education. If your goal is only to receive energy medicine treatment, consult Dr. João Paulo Pestana).
Can healthcare professionals also apply?
Yes. There are more and more health professionals wanting to  deepen and integrate the knowledge of Energy Medicine  in the  their professional practices, from: physicians, psychologists, psychotherapists, osteopaths, naturopaths, and chiropractors, as well as nurses, coaches, acupuncturists, massage therapists, yoga instructors, occupational therapists, and physical therapists, to name just a few.
I am a health professional, I can immediately start to integrate what I learn in the modules into my therapeutic practice, or do I need to  finish the first year to  Can I start applying what I've learned?
Yes. Any health professional (conventional or complementary) can immediately start applying what they learn in the different classes with their patients/clients.  
After completing the first year can I say that I am certified in Energy Medicine by Donna Eden?
Not. The students who complete  the first year will receive an Innersource/Eden Method Certificate of Completion. The Certification Program lasts for two years. the first year  it is the foundation for those students who wish to advance to the second year and thus become Certified Professionals.
I want to advance to the second year of training to  be certified, can I do it in Portugal?
At the moment, the second year of certification is only carried out in England and the United States.
