We are looking forward to many fine research studies again this year. This year you will present via pre recorded video link. There are no submission fees and presenting scientists will have access to all video links for free.
We have a limited number of slots for presentation this year. Please get your research submission in as early as possible. To submit an abstract please email to Melinda_Connor@mindspring.com If you are interested in submitting to the symposium please be aware of the following requirements for submission:
You must include name email address and phone number of the presenting author.
Please include all authors of the study in the order in which they are to be presented. Last name, First Initial. Then list full names of each author and their affiliations.
You must submit a 150 word presenter bio as part of the submission process.
You must submit a 400 word abstract on your research. Please write the abstract in standard scientific format. Include Purpose/Objective, Materials, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusion. Abstracts which exceed 400 words will be cut off and may fail the peer review process!
Please include the p values as part of your research abstract.
Presenters must be sharing their original research.
If you received a grant please list the granting organization.
A theory papers must be presented by the original author of the theory or a person approved by the original author.
For Clinical Studies and Device Studies: We require that every study involving humans or animals (with the exception of single case studies) have permission from a human/animal studies ethics review board. You will be asked to submit the review date as part of your submission. Studies submitted without a human/animal studies ethics review many not be presented at this conference.
For Theory presentations: You must present an original theory which you developed. Please be sure that your theory has solid scientific references.
For Single Case Studies: Single case studies do not involve more than one client. If you have more than one client involved in the research you will need to do a properly prepared, human ethics reviewed study. Please include more than just your client’s anecdotal reports of change. For example: If a bone has been repaired that was broken, information from the x-ray report needs to be included. Your single case study should include instruments that measure the amount of change for the client. Example: Questionnaires, X-ray, Blood Test, Urine Test If the single case study is an integrative medicine type study please be sure to include the objective measures of change for each discipline included in the study.

Midge Murphy, J.D., Ph.D Midge Murphy is the first attorney to receive her PhD in energy medicine from Holos University studying under the auspices of Caroline Myss, Ph.D., and Norm Shealy, MD, PhD. Midge has over a decade of legal and business experience in the motion picture and television industry, having served as Director of legal/business affairs for the Walt Disney Company and American Broadcasting Companies. In addition, she has served as general counsel for Patagonia and EMP America before earning her PhD in energy medicine. She understands both the law and the healing arts which allow her to lend her expertise as a bridge between the two worlds. Midge is the co-author of Creating Right Relationships: a Practical Guide to Ethics in Energy Therapies. While Midge no longer practices law, she does offer professional liability risk management consulting services. For nearly a decade she has been empowering energy healing practitioners and helping clients such as the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACAP), Tapas Fleming (TAT®), Gary Craig (EFT), David Feinstein and Donna Eden (Eden Energy Medicine), Mark Dunn, ND (Conscious Systems™) the Healing Touch Program, and Matrix Energetics International. Midge is the co-author of Creating Right Relationships: a Practical Guide to Ethics in Energy Therapies. Margaret Moga, Ph.D. Dr. Margaret Moga is an associate professor of Anatomy & Cell Biology at Indiana University School of Medicine. Her current research focus is developing scientific measures of ‘energy healing’ and other bioenergetic phenomena. The sorts of questions that she is interested in includes: How do we measure the “putative energies” involved in biofield therapies such as Reiki, Qigong and Healing Touch? How do healers develop charge in their bodies? Can emotions be detected in the local environment? How does remote viewing/distant healing physically alter the space around a target? She is currently using: magnetic field recording, random event generators (REG), full-spectrum photography and audio recordings as part of her research process.
