Medical Intuition and Dreams That Heal

Prerequisite: None

TMI Program Calendar


Identify the many ways your intuition speaks to you.
Increase your sensitivity to receive and act on the messages from your body.

Many factors affect our health, from genetics and environmental pollution to toxic emotions. Our bodies constantly speak to us (disease and illness are often the result of unconscious choices) and have much to teach us if we can learn to listen. Our intuition can provide valuable tools for uncovering emotional, mental, and spiritual causes of physical problems and bringing them into conscious awareness. Keeping a dream diary allows the intuitive skills that we cultivate during the day to continue on a deeper level at night. This process can be more effective than conventional therapies and treatments.

Learn mind-body-spirit techniques to tap into your own self-healing abilities.
Open to both practitioners and people on their own healing journeys.

Perhaps you are addressing specific health conditions or you are working with patients who have health concerns. Maybe you need to relax and rejuvenate from excessive stress and a toxic environment; or you sense the need to deepen your own understanding and practice of inner guidance.

You will discover, cultivate, and use your inner guidance in all its forms (dreams, symbols, metaphor, emotions kinesthetic, somatic), as you explore a holistic approach to health and well-being.

Developed by Larry Burk, MD, CEHP, and Winter Robinson, MEd, this program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to tap your deepest potential for healing and understanding by taking an all-embracing approach to optimal wellness.


Understand the history and research behind Medical Intuition.



Larry and Winter will be introducing the Long Tide technique:
Practice and experience the creative intention of the breath of life, the Long Tide, a breathing technique that is commonly perceived as a streaming of radiance moving through both practitioner and client. This healing breath creates a sense of awe and stillness, of interconnection and support; what the Buddhists call the mutuality or co-arising nature of all things becomes more obvious.

In addition to fine- tuning your unique language you will explore:

  • Energetic overview—outside influences, karma, past lives
  • Root cause or core imbalance—what is the trigger for an illness
  • Important aggravating factors—toxins, allergies, environment, and people
  • The Souls journey
  • Ethics of Medical Intuition

By participating in this healing retreat, you will:

  • Learn to discern between ego and intuition
  • Recognize your inner signals for yes and no
  • Learn how to think about illness symbolically
  • Use metaphor to transform symptoms
  • Understand messages from your dreams about illness
  • Learn to incubate dream questions and ask for clarifying dreams
  • Utilize your dreams for healing
  • Be trained to use EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and change the beliefs your body carries
  • Explore symbolic expressions of underlying psycho-spiritual imbalances
  • Understand the human energy system
  • Explore the hidden shadow issues of the lower chakras
  • Observe daily demonstrations of intuitive scan/EFT practices
  • Use the Chinese 5 Element Theory as metaphor
  • Practice Yoga Nidra, dream interpretation and Qi Gong daily

This may be the most important program you’ll ever attend.
Reserve your place in the Medical Intuition and Dreams That Heal 5-day retreat.

Don't take our word for it.  Here is what our past Medical Intuition and Symbolic Healing participants have to say about their experience with us—

"I signed up for the Medical Intuition workshop with the hopes that it would give me at least one new tool I could use to access information from the more subtle, non-physical world, and that it would stretch me in some way beyond my current level of comfort.  This workshop exceeded my expectations on both counts.  Larry and Winter combine their styles and perspectives in a way that give this workshop a balance I have rarely experienced in my continuing education courses.  The group sessions, dream-interpretation exercises, and energetic healing demonstrations have given me tangible tools I can and do use, both in my daily life and in my practice.  And as I discovered, committing myself to spend a week allowed me to experience connections that seemed to reach beyond this lifetime.  This workshop was a profound step in my ongoing awakening process, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is curious about medical intuition." - J.D.

"To figure out which thoughts that come to my mind are intuitive hits, and which are just my left-brain imaginations was the reason I signed up for this course.  I went home having experientially gotten exactly that question answered, and more, both personally and professionally. Larry and Winter led us through many exercises and discussions exploring the different modalities we utilize in developing our inner sixth sense.  Larry taught us the basic EFT tapping technique which I used immediately after leaving the course on the way home to attend a much-dreaded family event.  The tapping helped to drop my emotional baggage about it so that the event became one of joy and happiness.  Dream interpretation during and after the course has helped me to address my own unrecognized issues.  Professionally, I'm starting to pay more attention to intuitive "hits" during patient encounters, allowing a richer connection and "cutting to the chase" of the patient's issues.  I want to thank Larry and Winter for a truly transformative week." – C.D.

"I’ve attended 12 courses at TMI since 2005, and the Medical Intuition course lead by Dr. Larry Burk and renowned Medical Intuitive Winter Robinson have given me a set of tools that are making a tremendous difference in my life today.  Just 2 weeks since the class and I’ve already noticed a true sense of “sweet stillness” that has impacted my physical life by dropping my blood pressure(BP) down some 20 points so I no longer qualify to be on my once a day BP meds.   Using the EFT Tapping taught by Larry and supported by input from Winter, I’ve changed my eating habits, I don’t get mad or frustrated anymore and if I begin to sense a stress … I just Tap the drama away.  I engage in a ritual of self-acceptance that heretofore has been elusive.  I highly recommend this course to anyone who seeks to make a positive change in their lives." – D.A.

"My objective in attending was to help me focus my life after having four surgeries in seven months. I did not perceive much until Wednesday morning when the frightening dream I had that night shocked me awake. The question for my dream state on Tuesday evening was "help me reset my focus switch." Once I expressed my dream to the group, I realized something amazing.  I was killing off three of the most important parts of my life that were holding me back. It was like a wave of new energy was coursing through me; almost like becoming enlightened. On the afternoon break I walked up and down the hill without any pain in my knee. I have had worsening pain in that knee from an injury in 1964. Since coming home I have been able to walk up and down steps carrying heavy objects, working on uneven terrain, doing yard work and even squatting. There has been no pain. Not only did I achieve my initial goal for coming to the seminar, but also experienced a physical and energetic healing that sparked my new path and focus."  - E. C.

"I wasn't sure what to expect, but ended up getting a lot more than I expected. We did do intuitive diagnosis exercises, but there was so much more, with work on dream interpretations and using physical symptoms as metaphors using the Chinese 5 elements as a framework. I enjoyed the intuitive diagnosis as I had expected but was especially intrigued by the dreamwork and the 5 element work. The workshop also rekindled an interest I had in EFT or 'tapping' techniques. All in all I found the workshop to be enjoyably multifaceted and would recommend it to anyone interested in further explorations 'outside the box." - T. H.

"I found the medical intuition and symbolic disease course to be a very worthwhile endeavor. For me, it was valuable to take time away from the analytical, linear thinking of everyday medicine and get in touch with my intuition. I believe this is a process that all physicians should learn and a skill all health care providers should develop in order to improve their diagnostic and clinical acumen. This level of deeper awareness will help physicians understand and approach their patients as emotional and spiritual beings, instead of merely biological machines."  –R.B.

"Thank you so much for the amazing weekend in November 2015. I had some intense revelations during the meditation sessions in our CHEC units. I had what could only be described as an energy purge, it was unbelievable. The poison and toxins I had been collecting over past few decades just washed away. I am now at peace. The program was very well planned, and I learned a lot. - S.Z.

"The Medical Intuition week for me took some hair-raising roller coaster turns in the months after I registered and before I arrived at TMI; my expectations shifted away from plans to apply lessons to hospice and palliative nursing when I unexpectedly retired.  My new circumstances magnified the programming and attendees impact for me.  I enrolled with anticipation of enhancing and honing my irregular empathic experiences for patient care; instead I received a healing, a launch--'unstuck', and am on a long-sought and now accelerated journey."  – E.
