Science shows that all this — and more — is possible when you learn to unlock the genie in your genes. Author Dawson Church, PhD, is the author of the best-selling book The Genie in Your Genes ("Best Health Book" — USA BookNews). It de-mystifies the science of epigenetics (epi=above), the study of influences that turn genes on and off.
Research has now revealed that cancer genes, heart disease genes, diabetes genes, and over 1,500 other genes in your body can be turned on or off through epigenetics. In this 12 week course, he shows you exactly how epigenetics works. He guides you in learning how to communicate with your inner genie, in order to trip the genetic switches that lead to optimal health and energy.
He'll show you that the saying "It's all in your genes" is a myth, and that in fact you can direct your genes in many surprising ways. You aren't a victim of the genetic code you inherited at conception; people can, and do, redirect their body's biochemical cycle to prevent disease and slow the aging process.
Stress is a primary contributor to cell decay, and Dawson lays out all the research showing how you can reduce or eliminate stress in each area of your life. When you use these practices on a regular basis, you use epigenetics to literally reprogram your genes for vitality and wellbeing.
Each of the 12 weeks, he’ll train you in one simple and elegant technique that has proven epigenetic benefits. These 12 techniques clear the anger, guilt, shame and regret from your life’s traumatic events, make you resilient in the face of today's challenges, and open you to higher order possibilities for your future.
Dawson calls this “becoming your own epigenetic engineer.” You’ll understand how by using these practices, you’re literally engineering the biochemical balance of your your body, and tipping the scales toward health and wellness.
If you’ve wondered how meditation, neuroscience, Emotional Freedom Techniques (aka “tapping”) fit into a healthy lifestyle, you’ll find out here. Dawson draws from ancient sources like Oriental medicine as well as the latest research in biomedicine, and shows you how to get the best of both worlds. He reveals which methods are based in solid science, and which are just hype (you’ll be surprised!).
He also knows we’re all busy, so he focuses on practices that take 19 minutes a day or less. That’s 19 minutes to reprogramming your genes for the highest possible quality of life. In 12 weeks, you’ll get Dawson’s step-by-step formula for minimizing disease and maximizing health.
If you’re interested in alternative medicine, yet you demand intellectual and scientific rigor, you’ll find that both come together in Dawson’s wise, compassionate, humorous and balanced teaching style. If you want to unlock the life you know deep down inside is possible, a life full of abundant health and vitality, you find out exactly how in The Genie in Your Genes online course.
“Recent advances in the science of epigenetics and quantum physics herald a global evolution that will profoundly impact the life of every person on this planet. Dawson Church expertly distills the Ivory Tower complexities of this life-changing science into a simple and elegant presentation that anyone can understand.”

Scientists used believe that each person’s gene expression (turning genes on and off) was fixed at conception. We then just lived out the life scripts coded into our genes.
But new discoveries have shown that nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, over 8o% of our genome is dynamic, changing and shifting in response to influences from our environment.
We can use this new knowledge to change our environment to trigger beneficial gene expression, down-regulating genes associated with inflammation and stress, and up-regulating genes associated with immunity and longevity. Using transformational practices like meditation, mindfulness, tapping and biofeedback, we change the biochemical environment around our cells, sending health-promoting signals to our DNA and turning on beneficial genes.
This has remarkable implications for our quality of life. We are able to reprogram our internal biology to support our health and wellbeing.
Without this knowledge, your genes are highly affected by stress. Studies show that stress can knock between 9 and 14 years off your life-span, and result in an even more reduced “health-span.” That’s the number of years of healthy life you get to live. Stress is associated with many diseases including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, depression, and hepatitis.
In this 12 week course Dawson applies the science behind these discoveries in a practical program. He trains you in the practices that eliminate stress, turning off disease-promoting genes and turning on health-producing genes. You’ll shift from believing that your future is “all in your genes” to realizing that you have immense power to engineer your own genetic destiny. You’ll understand how to apply epigenetics in practice, to extend your health-span and give yourself the gift of a longer and healthier life.
The Genie in Your Genes online course is the leading edge. It gives you the best of all worlds: science, alternative medicine, biotechnology, and spirituality. It shows you how they can all be brought together to boost your health and vitality to heights you might never have believed possible.
If The Genie in Your Genes online course just taught you about epigenetics and how radically it affects your body, it would be one fantastic and life-changing program.
But besides his academic credentials, Dawson has a very practical mind. He’s been meditating since he was 15 years old. He’s the author of several books and scientw6ific papers on practices like mindfulness and tapping, and he knows the value of putting these methods into daily practice.
So each week, he trains you in one of 12 simple yet powerful mind-body practices that apply the lessons of epigenetics to practical stress management. These methods are simple and drug-free, yet research shows they affect many of your body’s key healing genes.
Dawson will teach you to create a self-healing program tailored to your unique lifestyle. So join us in exploring the secrets of your body’s untapped healing potential, enroll today, and enjoy the benefits that come from taking control of your health and your life.
“The Genie in Your Genes is one of the most useful books I have come across in a long time for anyone in the therapeutic professions. The importance of the mind-body connection in diagnosis and healing has been gaining increasing traction through the work of such ground-breaking pioneers as Candace Pert, David Feinstein and Bruce Lipton. What Dawson Church has done is to weave the work of the many scientists and researchers in this area over the last century into an impressively comprehensive overview, and in a narrative so lucid that anyone should be able to understand it. In fact reading this book was one "Aha" moment after another for me, as I read things I had heard, and even lectured on many times before, but somehow they were placed in a context that made fresh and compelling sense.
“The implications of this work are profound, not only for understanding the mechanisms at play in disease and wellness, but also for understanding the power of perceptions and beliefs in creating the social and political realities we must deal with every day. I would make this book required reading for just about every discipline, and certainly all therapeutic modalities.”
New Consciousness Review
You'll also hear many stories of real-life people who used these techniques with astonishing results. One of them is Brenda N. When she discovered Dawson's work, she was deeply depressed. She had a rare muscle wasting disorder that became progressively worse. She had to give up her dream job, and needed a cane to get around.
In the first hour of her exposure to this work, she had the thought, "Maybe, just maybe, it's possible to heal." She began to apply these methods. Her depression lifted, and her symptoms improved. Less than a year later, Dawson videotaped her dancing around the meeting room during a live workshop.
Brenda also said her relationship with her husband turned around 180 degrees. A Vietnam veteran with PTSD, he had become uncommunicative and was drinking heavily. After he saw the changes in her and began to use these methods himself, he began to talk to her each evening instead of watching TV. Brenda says, "After 14 years, it's like I got my husband back again."
“Challenges the long-held notion that genetic structure is determined at birth and its role in developing different traits remains stable after birth. Besides explaining cogently the complex interplay of electromagnetic energy, body chemistry, and physiological healing from disease, The Genie in Your Genes explores several less-known phenomena like: mirror neurons, piezoelectricity in our bodies, changes in DNA influenced by one’s intention, healing frequencies of therapists, entanglement, and much more. So exhaustive is Dawson Church’s coverage of his case for energy healing that the question of ‘Why use alternate healing?’ changes to ‘Why not try energy medicine first?’ Fully referenced, and listing many important healing techniques ... for those millions of people who are suffering from some form of stress”
The Audience Review
In each of the 12 lessons, Dawson will explain the most exciting new scientific research showing exactly how your body works. Each week includes a transformational practice that you can use to shift your cells toward health, vitality and longevity. He shows you the "hows" as well as the "whats" of how to unlock energy and vibrance in both body and mind.

Lynn shares the most profound teachings she has received from these 12 women of the Sisterhood of the Shield, members of an ancient shamanic society that is deeply embedded in native cultures and traditions all over the world. She shows how her teachers have led her to confront her deepest fears and accept, without hesitation, that there is a spiritual solution to every one of life’s problems.
Lynn Andrews is the New York Times- and internationally bestselling author of the Medicine Woman Series, which chronicles her three decades of study and work with shaman healers on four continents. Her study of the way of the sacred feminine began with Agnes Whistling Elk and Ruby Plenty Chiefs, Native American healers in northern Canada. Her quest for spiritual discovery continued with a Shaman Curendera of the Mayan Yucatan; an Aboriginal woman of high degree in the Australian Outback or Nepalese healer in the foothills of the Himalayas. Today, she is recognized worldwide as a leader in the fields of spiritual healing and personal empowerment. A shaman healer and mystic, Ms. Andrews is widely acknowledged as a major link between the ancient world of shamanism and modern societies thirst for profound personal healing and a deeper understanding of the pathway to enlightenment.
Now the new science of epigenetics has shown just the opposite: that over 80% of the genome is affected by external environmental events. These include intangible influences such as your emotions, beliefs and spiritual experiences. In this inspiring video, recorded at the prestigious Transformational Leadership Council, Dawson Church describes this research, and how it is providing our society with quick remedies for both physical and psychological symptoms. He shows how even serious mental health issues like PTSD can be treated quickly and effectively, and ends with an inspiring vision of how the world is changing as we bring transcendent experiences into everyday life.
Dawson Church has edited or authored many books in the fields of health, psychology and spirituality. He has collaborated on articles with many of the leading voices of our time, including Larry Dossey, Bernie Siegel, Caroline Myss, Barry Sears and John Gray. He earned his doctorate in Integrative Healthcare at Holos University, under the mentorship of distinguished neurosurgeon Norman Shealy, MD, PhD, founder of the American Holistic Medical Association. He went on to receive a postgraduate PhD in Natural Medicine. Church and Shealy coauthored a compendious survey of spiritual healing throughout history called “Soul Medicine.”
Church founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH.org), a nonprofit dedicated to education and research into science-based medical interventions which use consciousness and energy as primary modalities. He is the author of several studies published in peer-reviewed journals, and lectures at many medical and psychology conferences each year. He presents workshops on peak performance for athletes and organizations through EFT Power Training. He performed the first randomized blind trial of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) for athletes, the first study of EFTs effects on healthcare workers, and a large nationwide study of PTSD in war veterans as part of the Veterans Stress Project.
Dawson Church’s research summarizes the biomedical evidence for consciousness-based treatments. The Genie in Your Genes outlines the latest studies on the effects of psycho-spiritual experiences on gene expression, and predicts that consciousness will reach the front-line of medicine in the coming decade. It has been hailed as a brilliant contribution to the literature by many reviewers.
