The AGI website also has an exhaustive listing of Academy trained Interactive Guided Imagery practitioners, who can be searched by name, state/province, zip code, area code or country here.

I also want to call your attention to Imagery International an excellent organization for imagery practitioners that is devoted to promoting and supporting the use of guided imagery in health care, business and everyday life. These folks also produce a very worthwhile and fun-to-read newsletter, Imaginews , that’s very substantive and offers ideas, solutions, practical applications, essays and new research results. If you’re a clinician interested in guided imagery, you’ll like this newsletter/journal a lot. To learn more about the benefits of membership, click here.

And we’ve been told by Susan Ezra and Terry Reed that Phase I of their Certificate Program in Integrative Imagery begins May 16-18 in Burlingame, California, near the San Francisco airport.

This superb, 3-day training is open to all licensed healthcare professionals, offers 20.4 contact hours and is the introduction to the course. For more info, contact co-directors, Susan Ezra and Terry Reed at Beyond Ordinary Nursing, http://www.integrativeimagery.com or 650-570-6157.

On another note, we’re proud and delighted to have produced Emmett Miller’s two extraordinary new CDs , Optimizing Chemotherapy and Optimizing Radiation Therapy, programs that offer deep relaxation and highly targeted hypnosis and guided imagery for activating immune function and for optimizing the effects of treatment. These are wonderful, effective audio programs, for yourself or as a gift for friends and family. And for those undergoing treatment who need to hear a man’s voice, this is simply a must.


Take care and be well.
