IMHS Course CatalogueThe IMHS Metaphysics Doctoral Degree program is comprised of a total 12 required courses covering a wide variety of metaphysical concepts and life-skills. The five Bachelor’s Degree courses have been predetermined for you. Most of the seven required courses in the Master’s Degree Program have been pre-determined based on the area of specialization you choose, but some specializations allow you to choose electives. This section describes all of our courses. Please check the individual degree specialization pages above for specific course requirements.

Each course is comprised of several segments and is designed to be completed in 15 - 30 hours, depending on the course and student. Some segments include audio and/or video supplements to the written material. Course work varies depending on the course material but courses include study material and other learning resources such as videos and audios. Most courses include a final exam or written assignment or both. All study material is included in the tuition--there are no additional books to buy. A certificate of completion is issued once each course is completed. A Bachelor's Diploma is issued after the first five courses and the Bachelor's course assignment are completed; a Master's Diploma is issued after seven additional courses are completed, and a Doctoral Diploma is issued once the Doctoral Degree Assignment is completed.

The courses are designed to be taken one per month, but students are free to complete up to three courses per month if their schedule permits full time study. The key is to digest the information rather than speed through it.


Many of the Degree Program courses below are available as

standalone certificate courses at Thomas Francis University, our sister school.

In an effort to inspire a natural flow of balanced energy, KEH Level 2 also teaches a one-of-a-kind method to “reassign thoughts” so that the consciousness of the body can promote self-healing. This BTMI method inspires the spiritual connection with the body. Students are provided worksheets and practical training. KEH Level 2 is another step in preparing students for Level 3--unlocking the full power of the BTMI approach. Students who complete this course will receive their Certified Kvantum Facilitator 2 (CKF2) designation upon completion. Prerequisite: Course MHs.M35: Kvantum Energy Healing Level 1. Instructor: Dr. Vicki Hunter.


  MHs.M37 Kvantum Energy Healing Level 3 – Advanced Body-Thought-Memory Integration  

Kvantum Energy Healing (KEH) Level 3 - Advanced Body-Thought-Memory Integration provides the final step toward advancing the fundamental formula for the proprietary and unique Body-Thought-Memory Integration (BTMI) modality developed by Dr. Vicki Hunter as a means of locating and changing “thoughts in the body.” KEH Level 3 expands on Level 2 and explores how to “dig deeper” in order to discover where “body-thoughts” are active and potentially inhibiting the body’s ability to heal. Also, learn how to proceed with follow-up client sessions with a 3-Answer Short Cut that continues to reveal hidden layers of body memory. In the healing-discovery process, KEH Level 3 also supports incorporating other potentially useful healing modalities that naturally compliment the BTMI modality. Students who complete this course will receive their Certified Kvantum Facilitator 3 (CKF3) designation upon completion. Prerequisite: Course MHs.M36: Kvantum Energy Healing Level 2. Instructor: Dr. Vicki Hunter.
