Victoria Merkle Ph.D. is a Master Healer, Lineage Teacher, and Research Scientist in the emerging field of Energy Medicine. Victoria is the founder of the Victoria Merkle School of Energy Medicine in Encinitas, California, where she has taught hundreds of students at the basic and master level of subtle energy healership. Earning her doctorate degree in Human Sciences from the New Mexico Theological Seminary, she also partnered in a study with the University of California, SD, on the Benefits of Hands-on-Healing with Breast Cancer. With the inspiration and guidance of numerous teachers along the way, including 50 years with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, she developed her teachings and expertise by navigating through the challenges of her own life and the persistence of never giving up. Her clarity and profound teachings are the answer to "there has to be an easier way."

Victoria refers to her teaching as "Adventures in Consciousness," putting together a framework of understanding our profound life experiences and their connection to our own souls' journey. By teaching and bringing this special knowledge to the world, Victoria has created a bridge for understanding those who are suffering, and more importantly, how to help them. Her deep understanding of healing has evolved to where there is a clear connection between "energy" and disease itself. No matter what form the disease takes, emotional, physical, or unknown, she has a deep well of knowledge to apply to any situation.

Victoria maintains a private practice with clients from all over the world. Clients describe a session with Victoria as being deep, powerful, magical, and full of laughter. Many have said the impact of one session with Victoria is equal to a year of therapies. Students have described Victoria's teaching as inspirational, life-changing, and deeply personal, yet also academically rigorous. Many students have been inspired to follow her teachings and wisdom to become Teachers and Practitioners of Energy Medicine or have created their own centers of healing.

Victoria co-created a line of healing supplements that proved to be extremely effective in treating pain, injuries, and promoting faster healing time using ancient herbal recipes and her vibrational tinctures. Ever innovating, she co-discovered a new topical delivery system Transdermal Synergy™, which is implemented in all of her Blue Buddha Therapeutics products.

Currently, she is writing a series of books on Energy Medicine. One of these will be a Handbook of Healing, which will be used as a textbook for future Energy Medicine programs. Another book, The Bridge of Now, Guide to Living Your True Self, is the continuation of The Inward Turn presented here, complete with actionable steps to guide you.

Victoria is the mother of three remarkable children, two amazing grandsons, and resides in San Diego with her husband of thirty years. An avid artist and painter, she also enjoys nature and animals, which have always filled her home. But especially in the wild, underwater, or above!
