After taking the Wisdom of Integrative Imagery course, my ability to work with clients using this tool was greatly improved. This is a 'must take' course for anyone who wants to have more mastery using he mythical tool of imagery.

LOVED this course

I LOVED this course, and the energy of the entire group as we all 'shared' our energy throughout each session. Both Terry and Susan were patient, compassionate listeners, so that 'revealing' oneself or making oneself vulnerable wasn't scary at all.

Faculty

Susan Ezra, RN, NC-BC, ACC 

Terry Reed,  RN, MS, HNBC®

Susan's passion has always been to ignite the healing potential within an individual through the body/mind. While on staff at Hospice of Marin, Susan pioneered bringing imagery to the bedside of hospice patients to manage pain/symptoms and to enhance peace/well-being. Incorporating holistic health coaching and the transformative power of imagery into her practice, she works with clients and groups by phone, video meetings and in person. Susan is also part of the Core Faculty at Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy.

Terry’s nursing clinical experience spanned 40 years, predominately in critical care and behavioral health.  For the past 20 years, Terry has had a private practice offering stress management and Integrative Imagery.  Her extensive article on “Imagery in the Clinical Setting: A Tool for Healing” was published in Nursing Clinics of North America in June 2007.

In 1996, Susan and Terry co-founded and directed the Certificate Program in Integrative Imagery through their company, Beyond Ordinary Nursing and have certified nurses, social workers and therapists nationally. 

In 2003, Terry and Susan were then successful in incorporating imagery services in a hospital-wide program bringing stress management, surgery preparation and guided imagery to staff, patients and the community.

In 2008, they co-authored Guided Imagery and Beyond: Stories of Healing and Transformation, an anthology of stories from clients and students showcasing the powerful applications of Integrative Imagery. 

In addition Susan and Terry have served as board members and president of Imagery International and as faculty for the Academy for Guided Imagery, as certified mentors and practitioners.
