The American Institute for Mental Imagery

The American Institue for Mental Imagery (AIMI) is chartered by the New York State Regents to train clinicians in the GEMS integrative healing system.  (for classes for the general public on self healing,  see LEARN.)

Learn a wholistic model of health: This training provides you with a comprehensive model of healing and re-education for your clients based in mental imagery (visualization) and cognitive techniques.  This new model, called GEMS Healthcare System, looks at ourselves in our wholeness. Instead of dissecting ourselves into compartmentalized beings having physical issues and separate emotional issues, we examine the interconnectedness of our social, mental, physical, emotional, and moral/spiritual issues.

 What Graduates are saying: 

Ten years ago, you began to teach me and help me find my way. Clearly, it was “not by chance”. The book Inconceivable came flying off a shelf and introduced me to you the same week my friend Mark said to me “I think you’d like Jerry Epstein” and the same week of your once a year weekend workshop for clinicians incorporating imagery.  It’s not by chance, that weekend changed my life and the lives of so many people who have encountered and discovered your teachings through my voice...I thank you with all my heart for teaching me to discover and reveal and release the beauty, knowledge and love available inside, and further to respect the right side of the brain, as you know, the right brain is on a horizontal plain to the left. Had God wanted to make one superior, they would have been vertical! 

 All my love,
