Podcast: Episode 35: The Energetic Dynamics in BEing Human with Jennifer Foster

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.

Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

Jennifer Foster

Jennifer Foster, MA, BSc is the creator of the Energy Dynamic Model and author of “2020 The Way Forward” which includes two books looking at the nature of our society and of ourselves. She works with people to raise their consciousness levels by using this idea.

Born in the United Kingdom, she was by age 15 scribbling down stick men and diagrams to see if she could make sense of what was going on around her in the world. It would become her life’s work. She earned a master’s in economics and philosophy in college where her knowledge was furthered by work experiences helping people with mental health conditions, learning difficulties, families, business coaching, a reiki master, acupuncturist, life coaches and NLP practitioners.

At the end of 2012 she put all this learning together and the Energy Dynamic Model was born. The next five years were spent writing the two books and making over 100 videos about the model. In 2016, she opened an online academy and in 2019 started to make “EDM Power Towers” which are wooden, colourful sculptures that visually show people what “who they are” is, and the role of their feelings in relation to this. Various organizations and therapists now use this idea in their tool kits to help others overcome difficulties.

Jennifer is now looking to expand the reach of the Energy Dynamic Model and welcomes all people to enroll in the online Energy Dynamic Model Academy. Learning about how you work in an energetic and practical way is going to be a real strength in the coming times and now is the time to start moving forwards with this. Jennifer has a free online course about the Stick Self.

Language: Featured Words in ContextTree of life with heart on trunk


In Jennifer’s EDM model, she sees each of us simply as magical creatures. We are represented as a magic wand she calls the Stick Self. Using simple tools, she breaks down the elements that each of us incorporate in expressing BEing and the necessary elements if we want to be happy and feeling good about BEing alive.

Roots: Associated WorksTree roots

Jennifer’s influences start with her father exploring philosophy/math/patterns. And continued with philosophers such as Immanuel Kant, Plato and David Hume. Book influences include Karl Marx’s “Das Kapital,” Lewis Carroll’s books “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass.” Other influences are her economics lecturer Dr. Michael Cohen and Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.”

Jennifer mentions that Ability, can you do it? follow thru, is a function of our mind sets. “Being of Three Minds” educates us to the different logics that form our ability, from the meditation archive at Interlude: An Internet Retreat.
