(Teaching Eden Energy Medicine)
Would you like to teach Eden Energy Medicine classes in your city or other interesting parts of the world?
Would you like Innersource's help and support in doing that?
If so, TEEM is your opportunity to learn exciting ways to bring out the best in your teaching. It can help you become authorized to teach Eden Energy Medicine classes, too.
TEEM is a new and exciting program designed to help anyone become a better EEM teacher. It's an intensive five-day class designed to facilitate your natural ability to present Donna Eden's work with enthusiasm and versatility while maintaining the professional quality and integrity of her work.
TEEM trainings are open to all EEMCP graduates and are composed of two separate components:
TEEM 101 focuses on improving your skills as a teacher and presenter through lecture, demonstration, and presentation of practice modules during class. There is a three-month mentorship after the TEEM 101 class during which you will be supported as you teach entry-level EM101 and EM102 classes in your community. Each TEEM 101 class will be limited to 50 students.
TEEM Foundations is an application-based class open only to TEEM 101 graduates. The coursework consists of one long weekend training that focuses on the unique challenges presented by teaching the advanced EEM material which comprises the Foundations Year of the Certification Program. There is a one-year mentorship after the TEEM Foundations class during which students are supported as they teach introductory classes in their communities and serve as interns in existing Foundations Year of classes. Students who successfully complete this Advanced Training class and all required practice teaching elements are eligible to teach their own EEM Foundations Year classes and be considered as candidates to join the EEM Certification Program (CP) Faculty. Each TEEM Foundations class will be limited to 24 students.
Should I Take TEEM Foundations First or YEAR 3 (the Clinical Practicum) First?
We actually schedule one of the TEEM101 sessions (May), TEEM Foundations (November), and the Clinical Practicum (August and January) so you can take both in the same school year (as four classes at the Wigwam, in similar fashion to Year 2). TEEM prepares you to teach EEM in local communities. Year 3 enhances your effectiveness in applying EEM with clients while elevating your professional skills and experience. Whether you take one, all, or none, and how you schedule them is, of course, up to you.
A bit of guidance is that we were initially inclined to require that students graduate from Year 3 (and complete the corresponding 100 EEM clinical sessions) prior to attending TEEM Foundations. However, we recognized that some of our Year 2 graduates are already extensively experienced as health care practitioners and/or have done so many EEM sessions by the time they apply for TEEM Foundations, this would not be an appropriate requirement for them. Instead we point out that the key factor in considering the order of the trainings should be awareness that your authority and comfort teaching at the Foundations level will be proportionally enhanced by the extent and depth of your clinical experience. Year 3 is an excellent way to accumulate and hone that clinical experience.
