"The guided imagery training that I received from the Academy was by far the most exciting and useful training that I have received since finishing my PhD. I still get referrals regularly from the Academy's listing of graduates. I enthusiastically support any professional considering adding Interactive Guided Imagery℠ to their armamentarium."

"Though I have been in practice since 1973, I have seldom seen the depth of understanding, clarity of direction, and motivation toward change through other modalities. Clearly Interactive Guided Imagery℠ is an approach to therapy which is making a major contribution."

“. . .a truly invaluable experience that opened a gate for me to a deepened understanding of innate healing power. I sincerely believe that any physician who practices Integrative Medicine should be well-practiced in the applications of Interactive Guided Imagery℠. . .Its use in pain and symptom management, as well as insight and resource cultivation, has made the path of healing powerful and meaningful. . .What a joy!”
-Carl Hendel, MD
Integrative Medicine



"For me the most important part of my Interactive Guided Imagery℠ training was to really develop my skills as a listener. The AGI training program also helped me to be less judgmental and interpretive with regard to what I hear, whether in an imagery session or in other patient communications. Finally, my work with imagery has restored my enjoyment of the practice of medicine because it takes me and my patients into unknown, magical places of healing and awareness."
