Enroll in the World’s Most Prestigious Guided Imagery Training Program
The Academy’s Professional Certification Training Program is designed for health care professionals, coaches, and educators who wish to most effectively utilize the power of imagination to enhance optimal healing and health.

Many people spend a great deal of time in their imagination, mostly by worrying. Few realize that what they worry about is happening only in their imagination, not in the real world. Yet, they poison the present moment by regretting the past (which they can’t repeat) or by fearing the future (which is a total fantasy since it hasn’t happened yet.)

What many also fail to appreciate is the fact that imagery has physiological consequences. If you vividly think about how sour it tastes when biting on the slice of a juicy, yellow lemon, you’ll soon begin to salivate. Even thought the lemon is not real, your body generates real saliva in response to the thought. If people can actually worry themselves sick, why can’t they think themselves well and experience extraordinary positive benefits as a result.

The Academy’s Professional Certification training program will teach you how to use Interactive Guided Imagerysm to greatly enhance health and healing, relieve pain and other symptoms, overcome addictions, resolve inner conflicts, meet and work with your Inner Advisor, tame your Inner Critic, enhance creativity, deal more effectively with chronic illness, death, and dying, and see to explore your sense of life purpose.
