Renee Rothberg, who guides and teaches through Energy Guidance Complete, began this work through a circuitous route. She was born and raised in Galveston, Texas, received a BA in Political Science from the University of Texas at Austin, received a degree in Paralegal studies, and worked as a legal assistant in Houston and Manhattan. She then moved to Israel, where she worked for many years in technical writing. During both of her previous careers, Renee was aware of her need to be working with people either through nutritional counseling or through some other work that she was unable to define.
After Renee’s children were born, she began studying—kinesiology (Brain GymÒ, Applied Kinesiology, Vision Circles), Libra Method: holistic balance for spine and joints, aromatherapy, and nutrition. Renee is a certified Libra Method practitioner in Israel.
Renee became aware of her connection to Spiritual Presence and higher healing in the summer of 2012. Since then, she has written two guidebooks for healing, has developed Energy Guidance Complete, has published books about life, healing, the soul, relationships, a personal account of her experience with Energy Guidance Complete, a short play, and three books of wisdom poetry. She is currently working on four more books and continues to be the voice of Spiritual Presence through books, articles, blogs, seminars, and private sessions at her clinic and through Skype.
