The Illuminated Body

Two Day Interactive Training

Join us for this life changing weekend workshop

Next Class – March 17 & 18 in Oakland, CA

Join subtle energy pioneer Desda Zuckerman’s and her team of certified instructors to learn life changing skills.

Learn how to apply the illuminated Body Edge Practice in your life to prevent burnout, increase sensitivity without multiplying energetic vulnerability or toxicity and put an end to bad habits of losing boundaries and merging! This is the gold standard of how to live and work as an energetically awakened person.

On April 14-15, and again on June 3-4, Desda will lead the second course in her series, Energetic Hygiene for Healers.  Here you will gain an energetic toolkit to keep your subtle anatomy clean and refreshed.


Desda will lead an Illuminated Body and Energetic Hygiene back to back June 1-4.

Developed by Desda Zuckerman, founder of CoreIndividuation™ and author of Your Sacred Anatomy: An Owner’s Guide for the Human Energy Structure, this experience will provide new insight into what it means to be human.bag-2

The Illuminated Body is an introduction to long hidden teachings for how to work more consciously with the energy of your Sacred Anatomy. You will learn a cornerstone practice to interact with energy more hygienically while accessing greater precision, and power. You will leave the class competent to use this tool along with simple techniques that will dramatically boost the experience you and your clients have together.

“ We are being forced by necessity to take conscious ownership of an unnamed part of ourselves; a part that has been hidden, from all but a few people, for as long as we have been recording human history.” – Desda Zuckerman

Learn how to embody the stance of the conscious healer. In this 2-day program you can dramatically shift, deepen, and up-level your work as a healing professional. This program is ideal for experienced acupuncturists, body workers, osteopaths, shamans, and other energy healers who are seeking a dramatic shift in their work. If you are sensitive and sometimes struggle with merging, “taking your work home with you”, this class may save your life!

Learn the Following

  •     Accelerate the effectiveness and impact of your healing practice
  •     Discover why you sometimes get sick or tired, and how to change this
  •     Expand your knowledge of subtle anatomy and energy hygiene
  •     Learn the critical difference between the aura and the soul
  •     Embody a simple technique to awaken your essential presence
  •     Experience a paradigm shift in how you conduct a healing session

The workshop is highly experiential and includes a healing practicum on day 2 where you learn to apply the Illuminated Body practice to your healing modality.

Welcome to our CI Instructors!

On September 10 & 11 2016, a new generation of CI Practitioners and instructors took the stage, proving for all to see that the capacity to sense and interact with subtle energy is not a gift given only to a few, but an essential part of our human birthright, available to all.

Here they are!

The next group of certified instructors include Quiana Grace Frost, Colleen Lindstrom and Britta Fischlin.  They will be leading Illuminated Body trainings with Desda to complete their training, beginning in January of 2018!

“After the ‘Illuminated Body’  I’ve acquired or tapped into some more ‘metaphysical’ skills.  I can consciously “go to my edge”, as Desda terms it…. and find a reduction or elimination to any body pain I’m feeling.  I sense I am much more than a body…I use this  skill for working with clients and in day-to-day activity. I recommend it to all practitioners for sure!” – J.A.

Illuminated Body fulfills the pre-requisite for continuing study of CoreIndividuation™.
