Workshops & Classes

Jeya is a dynam­ic and engag­ing teacher. She brings her enthu­si­asm about the sub­ject mat­ter to her class­es, whether it is facil­i­tat­ing groups in Mind-Body skills for stress reduc­tion, the move­ment of Qi Gong, or the basics of acupunc­ture. She enjoys being a bridge, guid­ing stu­dents into knowl­edge and new skills. Jeya under­stands that peo­ple learn in dif­fer­ent man­ners so she brings all pos­si­bil­i­ties into each class or lec­ture. Every ses­sion includes visu­al, audi­to­ry and tac­tile forms of learning.

No mat­ter which class she teach­es, the stu­dents will leave with prac­ti­cal knowl­edge that they will be able to use from that day for­ward in heal­ing them­selves or assist­ing others.

Jeya is avail­able to trav­el to teach week­end workshops.

I feel more like “me” again. I am able to use what I have learned in all aspects of my life. I feel relaxed and moti­vat­ed. I am able to take on the world!”
“I am feel­ing more relaxed dur­ing stress­ful times. Being in the group has also healed a sense of lack of con­nec­tion and over­whelm.”
“Future think­ing is much less fraught with anx­i­ety and wor­ry. Also I feel that my goals are rea­son­ably attain­able (where as the same goals felt unat­tain­able before)” 

I have been in many groups and work­shops and this was very well done. Could­n’t be more appre­cia­tive. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”                                              “Jeya was amaz­ing! Kind, com­fort­ing, teach­es very well, patient, open and so much more!”

An expert about Acupunc­ture” is how I describe Jeya when intro­duc­ing her to my col­lege class. She brings an alter­na­tive method of address­ing dis­tress to the minds of my stu­dents. Her pre­sen­ta­tion is fresh, infor­ma­tive and cap­ti­vat­ing. The stu­dents have con­sis­tent­ly giv­en pos­i­tive feed­back about her pre­sen­ta­tion. I am grate­ful that Jeya is will­ing to come talk with these young folks and inform them of this option of therapy.

—June Sedar­baum, Adjunct Instruc­tor, Uni­ver­si­ty of Oregon

Jeya is a Guest Speak­er at my Uni­ver­si­ty cours­es every term and is always well-received and high­ly effec­tive. Her enthu­si­asm is con­ta­gious and her per­son­al style allows her to eas­i­ly con­nect with stu­dents. They enjoy her abil­i­ty to bring the­o­ret­i­cal infor­ma­tion regard­ing health and heal­ing into the class­room and demon­strate how to make it acces­si­ble and prac­ti­cal on a dai­ly basis. By allow­ing them to expe­ri­ence first-hand the ben­e­fits of the work she does, Jeya is a resource of invalu­able worth. Stu­dents reg­u­lar­ly request a return vis­it from her.

—Michael Con­nel­ly, Adjunct Pro­fes­sor, Uni­ver­si­ty of Oregon

I had the plea­sure of attend­ing an Alchem­i­cal heal­ing class, that Jeya was one of the teach­ers at. I found that Jeya was real­ly able to explain things in a way that was easy to digest and absorb. She has a won­der­ful gen­tle spir­it, that makes her very approach­able, with ques­tions and input. I hope to work with Jeya more in the future.

For years before she moved out of state, Dr. Jeya Aeren­son taught QiGong at our school, where she was a com­pe­tent and respect­ed teacher. Her sun­ny per­son­al­i­ty always lift­ed our spir­its when she was in the office. In the class­room, her stu­dents liked her, learned from her and gave her high marks on the instruc­tor rat­ings. We have filled her job, but no one has tak­en her place.
