What people say about Seminars & Consultations with Judy B. Worsley:
Over the past 12 years I have had the opportunity to attend Open Seminars, Teacher Training, MAP™ and consults with Professor J.R. Worsley and Dr. Judith Becker Worsley. They have been and continue to be amazing mentors. Whatever level of training I have participated in, I always come away with a feeling of growth as a person and a practitioner. I attend these venues of study because the teachers inspire me to look at who I am in and out of the treatment room. They give me the opportunity to experience a deep learning with others in a safe and sacred environment. The inspiration I receive from continuing to learn about this beautiful system of medicine enables me to be a more effective listener with my patients. -- Jill Williams
I found a week working with Judy to be a powerfully positive influence on both a personal and professional level. Reinforcing the teaching, clarifying points and setting out clear guidelines for anyone hungry to learn, Judy remains loyal to this magnificent system of healing. I recommend taking advantage of any opportunity to observe patients respond so positively to treatment. -- Janet Darby
My experience with Worsley Institute continuing education programs has been exemplary. I always come home with pearls that help me day in and day out in my practice. Attending and hosting Consultation Days has been my favorite form of continuing ed. My skills in CSOE grow exponentially during Consultation Days. Watching Judy Worsley interact with my own patients is amazing and very educational. She has a such a way of identifying and addressing a patient’s core issues. Watching her work opens up my own process of awareness of life and has fostered my ability to successfully help patients. -- Diane McCormick, M.D.
Every seminar I've attended with JB Worsley has contributed to my being an even better practitioner for my patients. When I return to my clinic after MAP™, Open Seminar or Consults I notice improvement in all my skills: patient rapport, diagnosis and treatment planning, point location and pulse taking accuracy. Is it possible to continue to become more effective with patients? Yes! Definitely! I recommend these opportunities to develop expertise to anyone who wants to experience enthusiasm and satisfaction in their practice. Thank you, Judy! -- Jan Blackmore
I attend open seminar days and consult days with J.B. Worsley because I believe they are one of the most effective ways for me to develop my skills and senses as a Worsley Five-Element practitioner in the tradition and spirit in which I feel this wonderful system of medicine is meant to be experienced and practiced. Having a master practitioner available to me on these days is simply a gift and opportunity I don't want to miss. I learn lots from these days in many ways, observing the wisdom and experience of a master practitioner in Judy coupled with the wisdom and insights of all the other attendees. You simply can't learn this from a book or other static learning method. The days are a wonderful opportunity to put into practice getting out of my head and coming to my senses, and coming away with more insights to sustain me and help me develop in my private practice. The days are fun and everyone is made welcome! -- Sean O'Neill
The transformations I see in patients and in myself after consults or training days with Judy are like watching little miracles unfold. Recently I have seen my outlook changing in simple day to day ways, and feel more powerful in myself and in my life. I am very grateful. -- Sarah Brooks
It is a very valuable experience for me to be with other WF-EA practitioners of all levels of experience and from different parts of the globe who come together to practice the important basics of what this acupuncture is all about – relational skills, CSOE and point location. I have attended numerous trainings, enjoyed many interactions, been seen and treated within the group, and then have gone home to my patients, renewed and invigorated! -- Anne Lindsay
