Bodies are devised to guide us in consciousness. Follow the energy of pain or illness and you will find characters inside bursting to express — emotions held back for decades, a little child sweetly playing, Aphrodite's sexy hips swaying. All these, and many more, are medicine.

I facilitate regular Voice Dialogue on any issues that arise in a person's life. I offer sessions in Pennsylvania, New York City, and whenever I travel and teach. Sessions are also available on skype and by phone. I also offer a specialization that works deeply with body symptoms and the unconscious.

Out of a lifetime of body-centered activities, a new way of listening to body symptoms has evolved. Body symptoms, in collaboration with the unconscious, guide us to disowned selves that are calling to be discovered. Through a process called Conscious Body and the Energy Medicine of Selves, which developed over a period of 20 years, we can find the inner self that is calling through physical symptoms.

When we find this self that is calling, we expand who we are. In addition to personal transformation, healing frequently occurs. An analysis of 10 years of client records showed that 62% of people's symptoms disappeared, 23% improved, and 15% saw no change.

"Judith Hendin has developed a profound and effective method for hearing the messages our bodies are trying to give us. She is a wonderful healer whose work I highly recommend." – Shakti Gawain

“Judith Hendin is a senior facilitator who has worked with us for many
years, both as staff and as a woman deeply committed to the process of self-discovery. Her teaching is excellent! . . . We also wholeheartedly recommend her work with the body. Her rich background has enabled her to give us a fascinating, creative, and transformative new way to think about our physical challenges.” – Hal and Sidra Stone
