Ethics in Energy Medicine
Boundaries and Guidelines for 
Intuitive and Energetic Practices


My students are always astonished when I relay true stories and case studies that demonstrate the lack of boundaries in the fields of intuition and energy medicine. When you’re not in the field, you don’t have as many opportunities to recognize what’s happening. I have those opportunities in abundance: from massage therapists who just “throw in” some extra energy work during a client’s massage, to past life regressionists who spill details of a client’s past life at a party, to intuitives who just “gotta tell you” what they see about you to show what they can do, to Reiki practitioners who tell you to take off your clothes.

My desire is to call practitioners to a higher standard and to educate consumers of their rights..... But it’s more than that. Globally, universally, we are experiencing an opening - an awakening. The access we have to our intuitive abilities and consciousness levels is being blown wide open -- it’s happening everywhere, to all kinds of people, and we need a framework to understand it. Our Western culture has no framework.

In the West, we do not recognize intuition as a basic human ability that it is. We see it as some special “gift” that is given to only a few, which is why it tends to get ignored, distorted, or misused. We view energy medicine as New Age or alternative. We pit science against it. And yet, the study of energy is a scientific study. The true information does not conflict with science; it supports it. And true science supports what mystics have known for thousands of years. In fact, our first scientists were mystics, and our first doctors were shamans.

This book discusses the full scope of the intuitive process and proposes structures to keep practitioners and clients safe. We are in desperate need of guidance and standards so that we can approach the world of intuition, energy, and mysticism from a healthy and respectful place. We all need to know these ethical guidelines of boundaries and consent.

“This is a good reference book for people with an energetic heal­ing practice.”
—Salicrow, author of Jump Girl: The Initiation and Art of a Spirit Speaker

Engage, Teach, Persuade,
and Change Your Life through
the Power of Storytelling

Storytelling. It’s a skill. Really - who doesn’t remember that professor, clergy person, teacher, or business leader who told a good yarn to get their point across? Chances are you remember at least one person like that and more importantly, the story.

Whether we realize it or not, we are always telling stories. On a first date or job interview, in a sales presentation or therapy appointment, with family or friends, we are constantly narrating events and interpreting emotions and actions. In so doing, we make choices about what to emphasize and what to leave out. We frame and explain in order to amuse, rationalize, or just plain vent. The author, acclaimed for his storytelling on stages, the radio, and in novels including Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, is also an award ­winning teacher.

His wonderfully straightforward and engaging tips and techniques for constructing, telling, and polishing any story show that anyone can learn to be an appealing storyteller; that everyone has something story worthy to express; and, perhaps most importantly, that the act of creating and telling a tale is a powerful way of understanding and enhancing one’s own life.

No matter. who you are or what you do, storytelling can help you achieve your goals. Storyworthy is full of lessons on finding, crafting, and telling stories for building true connection with others. Dicks’s new book includes specific examples of well-told tales along with exercises designed to locate meaningful and compelling stories. And, of course, Dicks shares some of his award winning stories and what made them work.
