The Accunect® healing system was developed by Don Ka’imi Pilipovich and Sarah Simonis. Their company, Future Medicine Today, provides transformational seminars and educational materials used for personal development and healing, including the Accunect healing modality. Accunect has been taught to over 2,000 people by Don, Sarah and other Accunect Instructors. It combines the principles of traditional eastern medicine and philosophy, modern neuroscience and state of the art mind/body/consciousness techniques to leverage on the power of all of them. The Accunect system is derived from over 60 years of joint experience in the fields of health care, alternative healing and consciousness development. Accunect is for you if you would like to heal and transform your own life or life circumstances, your relationships, how you experience the world and how you relate and fit into it. Accunect allows for a gentle integral unfolding and an alignment of mind, body and spirit, so you are free to be yourself and experience health and your life as an expression of who you really are. Accunect is for you if you are already a practitioner and would like to see profound deeper results for your clients. If you are not currently a practitioner but would like to become a certified practitioner of mind, body, consciousness, energy medicine; working with individuals on deep levels to align the body as a whole this is for you. It is for you if you would like to experience better health or are on a journey of transformation in any area of your life, how you experience life, your relationships or fulfilment of your true self. We look forward to connecting with you soon.

Sarah Simonis has over 30 years experience in the fields of complementary healing, personal development, coaching, and conscious awareness development. Her experience working with feminine healing energy is an integral part of Accunect and is passed on in the healing energy of Accunect and its techniques. Sarah has brought an experiential and fun approach to the format of all courses, which leads to fast effortless learning, as the students directly experience the healer within them. Sarah’s practical and down to earth style makes Accunect a powerful transformational experience for all. Sarah grew up amongst many healers and doctors including both her parents who were forward thinking specialists, on the cutting edge of research and techniques, in their individual fields. Sarah became disillusioned with western medicine as a young teenager when her mother became ill and she realised that it did not have all the answers. In her late teens Sarah started on a quest to learn more about how the body works and how mind body and consciousness comes together. Sarah has travelled the world learning holistic skills from many ancient cultures and teachers as well as studying Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shiatsu at the European Shiatsu School and intuition development and healing at The College of Psychic Studies in London. Sarah brings extensive studies and investigation of Mind Body Consciousness Energy Medicine and Chinese Medicine in the form of NLP, Shiatsu, Tuina, Thai Massage, BodyTalk, Bowen, Reiki, and many forms of hands on energy healing as well as experience as a coach and leading personal development seminars. In her 20’s and 30’s Sarah spent various times in retreat undertaking mindfulness and meditative practices and conciseness awareness development. This experience adds to her expertise of working with the expansion of consciousness and intuition which is imbued into the Accunect classes to heighten and speed the development of intuition and connection to higher consciousness within all students. After studying business management at University, Sarah worked in London as a PR and marketing executive and campaign manager for the government’s Health Education Authority, launching health education initiatives such as Five a Day, No Smoking Day, and The Safe Sex Campaign; for charities including the British Lung Foundation, the World Cancer Research Fund and the RNID and for the Body Shop. Sarah transitioned from PR to having a waiting list practice using many modalities. Prior to developing the Accunect curriculum she created the courses; Excellence in Practice and Ethics in Practice. These courses were developed to help other Energy Medicine Practitioners become successful both as practitioners and as business people. These courses are the foundation of the Accunect Practitioner Certification Program and the Accunect Instructor Training Programme. Sarah’s prior experience has been invaluable in producing a world class level of training for Accunect courses, Accunect students and Accunect instructors. Sarah continues to develop courses with the goal of empowering others to learn to heal themselves and their clients as well as helping others to teach healing effortlessly. Sarah co-authored and developed the courses Accunect Connect, Accunect Zoom, Accunect SelfCare, Accunect Reconnect, Your Five Faces of God and developed Excellence in Practice, Ethics in Practice and Share.
All Accunect Instructors are successful in the business of being in practice and in gaining results using Accunect with their clients and in their own lives. Each one has undertaken a vigorous training programme in the realm of transformation and instruction in the principles and practice of Accunect. Our instructors come from a broad range of backgrounds. Some were previously practitioners of other healing modalities, some come from western medicine backgrounds and some have come from other business settings or life situations. The Accunect course material and curriculum is kept to a very high standard. You can count on the material and the goals and outcomes for the course being the same whichever country you are in. One thing that they all have in common is that they have experienced the results of Accunect for themselves as well as with their clients in practice. Our instructors are trained to deliver the course in a safe environment allowing each individual to drop into their heart space, where intuition grows and the Accunect energy is experienced at a deep core level. You will leave the weekend feeling confident in doing this work as you will have witnessed the transformations in yourself and others. By the end of the 2.5 days on one of our courses you will have experienced a huge transformation in yourself and your connection to Oneness. You will be able to practice Accunect and get amazing results for yourself and for others. That is our promise to you.

Patricia has a Bachelor of Science honours degree from the University of Limerick, Ireland. For 10 years she worked between the automotive and electronic industry in very stressful jobs, with long hours and pressured deadlines. Over time the stress had an effect on her health in the form of chronic fatigue and digestive issues which was a wake up call for her to pay more attention to keeping her mind, body and spirit healthy. She tried different complementary therapies and was so impressed that in 2005 she set up Holistic Healing therapies. Patricia has since qualified in a wide range of therapies including Massage, Reflexology, Sports Injuries, and energy healing modalities-Reiki, Bodytalk and Accunect. Patricia says: “After studying the first module of Accunect it was like a weight had been instantly taken off my shoulders. My intuition was greatly awakened, my heart opened and this energy system resonated with me completely,” She knew deep down after the first class of Accunect that she was going to teach this work. “Accunect has given me confidence that I never knew was there. I now have the energy to enjoy life, feel calm, centred and grounded.” Patricia’s enthusiasm for Accunect comes across powerfully in her teaching. She is passionate about bringing Accunect to people, to provide the necessary tools to manage their own health and well-being. Patricia teaches Accunect Self Care and Accunect Connect and is based in Ireland.
