New Class
(April, 2022)

Eden Energy Medicine Certified Class in Portugal 
Level 1: Fundamentals

Learn Ancient and Time Proven Techniques to Restore Health, Joy and Vitality.


Tap your hidden reserves of life energy to empower your happiness, health and wellbeing. Learn to heal, restore and revitalize yourself naturally, opening you to a more abundant, joyful and satisfying life.
For thousands of years, our ancestors recognized the healing value of energy.

From ancient Asia to the early Americas, traditional medicine focused on our energetic health as the most effective way to prevent disease and increase overall vitality.

Whether it was balancing qi along the body’s meridians, Ayurvedic practices that balance the doshas or hands-on shamanic healings, life energy was understood as the master key to wellness and optimizing our lives.
For millions, access to an abundant life force helped keep disease at bay.
Today, though, modern medicine almost entirely overlooks the healing power of our natural energy.
Eden Energy Medicine brings you vitality when you are drained, health when you are ill and joy when you are down. 
– Donna Eden
However, even science is coming around and even validating what our ancestors knew long ago: Life force energy is powerful. Very powerful!
Indeed, the exciting field of Energy Medicine is shining a bright light on what’s possible when you know how to harness the energy in your body, emotions and mind.
Energy Medicine puts your health and wellbeing into your own hands.
Daily practices can open and align different levels of your energy, giving you access to abundant health, profound joy and happiness, and crystal clear clarity and focus.
A source of deep satisfaction and wellbeing is literally a breath away.
Energy medicine is an integrated approach that builds upon insights from acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, therapeutic tai chi, yoga and other alternative healing modalities to:
  • Lessen aches, pains, illness and disease.
  • Create deeper happiness, satisfaction and contentment.
  • Increase focus, clarity and productivity.
  • Renew balance, harmony and wellbeing.
  • Improve overall health and longevity.

Many people are discovering their physical and emotional states — from daily health to shifts in mood and personal and professional challenges — all stem from energy flow.
When there are blocks or imbalances in the flow, sickness becomes more likely. Life is difficult, uneven and a struggle.
When natural flows are realigned, reopened and renewed, your life becomes easier, more abundant and fulfilling.
The good news is that Energy Medicine and its benefits are not only reserved for medically trained doctors, alternative health experts and gifted healers.
According to Energy Medicine pioneer Donna Eden, we all have the ability to use our life force energy to create a fundamental mind-body shift that can transform our lives for the better.
Since childhood, Donna has been able to see the flow of the body’s energies, from chakras to auras. After curing herself from a serious disease, she began studying the ancient energy traditions and saw how they all came together into one, coherent whole.
It was during this critical time when Donna came to appreciate that at our core we are all instinctive healers because our bodies and minds naturally seek health and alignment.
With the right knowledge and tools, you can move from instinctual to intentional healing; gaining access to a powerful source of health, vitality and joy.
For the past 40 years, Donna has taught more than 100,000 people from all over the world, from ordinary people to health professionals, to work with their own energies to create a kind of “on-demand” abundance and vibrant health.


Donna Eden was born with the ability to see the energy of the human body as clearly as you are seeing the letters of this text. Over the past 40 years she has dedicated his life to teaching others that they too can learn to test and balance their own energy and the energy of family, friends and patients.
Eden Energy Medicine heals body and mind by activating the natural healing energies of the body, restoring those that have become weak, disturbed or unbalanced.
Eden Energy Medicine techniques awaken energies that bring resilience, joy and enthusiasm to our lives - and greater vitality to our body, mind and spirit.
Harmonizing our energy balances the body chemistry, regulates hormones, increases vitality and helps us to feel and think better, strengthening our physical and psychological health.
