The Four Gates To Recovery: The Forgotten path of Returning to Wholeness
Do you, your family members or clients suffer from some frustrating, debilitating or a nagging condition that have resisted healing. Would you like to learn a set of self-help tools that truly work, because they address what is actually happening in your body? Get a healing, uplift your spirits and regain your hope in an atmosphere of warmth and playful exploration. This is a new program in the Energy Mastery certification track from Yuliya Cohen, a visionary teacher, energy coach, medical intuitive, tantra educator and a healer who for almost 30 years has been offering unique perspectives and a groundbreaking mind-body solutions that will empower you to unlock the inner healing potential of your body for rapid healing and repair of your deepest wounding. We will be exploring the Four Energy Gates (not the same as chakras), the vitally important major energy relay stations of the body and a vehicle through which the flow of our vital energy is directed that keeps the body aligned and balanced. Ancient energy medicine practitioners were aware of how our bodies regulated this flow of energy. These practitioners developed detailed maps of the Four Gate energy systems and how they affect our emotional and physical health. Taoists masters teach that without energy flow through the Gates there is no embodiment and there is no life. Discover how a wide range of physical and emotional symptoms are caused by this little understood vertical energy displacement of the energy field within the body through the Four Energy Gates. Every time you are shocked by some unexpected/traumatic event or even a news report, part of your energy literally checks out, jumps out of your body? Hence the expression to "jump up" in surprise. Adjusting this displacement by realigning and reintegrating your energy field back into the body along with reprograming your neural pathways, will bring quick relief and resolution to your discomforts associated with a plethora of seemingly unrelated and unexplained conditions, such as insomnia, rapid heartbeat, racing thoughts, abdominal distress, severe headaches, feeling dizzy or faint, loss of energy, anxiety and panic disorder, unexplainable rashes, suicidal states and many cases of mental illness diagnoses, as well as various issues related to sexual dysfunction or sexual performance and many others. Through highly experiential presentations, live demonstrations and personal practices of movement and mediation, learn the system of Energy Gates and powerful techniques that will: Step-by-step, safely and playfully shift you through four levels of embodiment into a full presence within yourself and with other people in your life. Decrease anxiety, eliminate persistent worries, and create states of profound healing Significantly lower your stress levels and lower your levels of brain chemicals related to worries, fears and anxiety, and increase your production of vital (and very pleasurable) brain chemicals related to your well-being Dramatically improve your ability to sleep better, focus, concentrate and think more clearly, increase you vitality and desire. Stimulate the creation of new neural pathways between the right and left hemispheres of your brain, balancing your brain and leading you to a high-performance state, scientists call "whole brain functioning" What distinguishes this course: Expert knowledge and fundamental practicality - Much of professional advice that is based on theoretically learned knowledge of what must be going with you, often leaves you frustrated, misunderstood and utterly hopeless. Yuliya is a master teacher who's depth of understanding is grounded in the first hand knowledge, since she has personally discovered the universal system of Energetic Structural Displacement in the course of an extensive personal experience in her 30 year private practice with thousands of clients, by investigating what worked and did not work within the existing systems and paradigms and then researching how this knowledge is reflected in all the major spiritual traditions. Comprehensive personal support - Yuliya is an energy intuitive and and an energy coach who is able to provide you with a new framework that completely validates every aspect of your experience and guide you through all the necessary steps toward the long awaited healing. Having had an opportunity to work with the most varied range of conditions and symptoms related to Energetic Displacement, she will be able to answer all the questions you have always wanted to find an answer to, and offer you a practical advice and guidance for healing your particular condition.
