Our Mission Statement

Silvia Hartmann, President & Founder of The GoE

Silvia Hartmann
GoE President & Founder

Modern Energists focus on The Third Field in the Mind, Body, Spirit triad. The Third Field, the living energy body, has been ignored for far too long, and it is of the essence to address this in a logical, structural and scientific manner. The living energy body is the source of our emotions, and without understanding how to improve the conditions in the energy body, humanity cannot go on. 

Through working with the Third Field, the living energy body, exclusively, Modern Energy modalities, methods and techniques have one single goal: To make people happier, stronger and healthier.


Modern Energy refers to the cohesive body of work in theory and practice developed by Silvia Hartmann from 1993 through to today.

Modern Energy is not based on ancient, oriental systems. Instead, Modern Energy was researched, tested and developed by working directly with the lived experience of intelligent, thinking modern human beings from the ground up, thereby laying the foundation for the long missing "science of love."

You can find the principles, key concepts and overview what is available in Modern Energy in Silvia Hartmann's groundbreaking book "The Energy rEvoluion."

General Information about The GoE

The GoE is a not-for-profit learned society devoted to the study of energy work in all its forms. Founded in the United Kingdom in 1998, it was the first organisation established in the world for the study of modern energy work.

The term 'modern energy' describes the overarching concept that holds together a number of observable intrapersonal and interpersonal phenomena which occur naturally and may be changed and influenced through techniques and strategies described under the energy inclusive paradigm.

The "Practitioner of Meridian & Energy Therapies" course was the first original professional Classic EFT practitioner qualification in the world. It has since been superseded by the GoE Energy EFT Master Practitioner qualification in 2011 and again by the GoE Modern Energy Tapping Professional qualification in 2018.

Our interest and expertise covers such topics as energy therapies and energy psychology in theory as well as in practical application. This pertains as much to establishing cohesive and testable theories for energy work in general, as well as developing and testing techniques, creating new research, professional training programs, and  to clearly define the roles, conduct and responsibilities of modern energy workers, researchers and practitioners in the modern age as energists in the Third Field

In 2012, the GoE was restructured as a UK incorporated limited company (The Guild of Energists Ltd), which was formed to ensure that all profit arising from commercial activities is reinvested back into the company and therefore furthering our aims. Being a non-profit organisation means that we are entirely reliant on income from members and the public, including by donation, bequeaths, publishing, membership renewals, licensing GoE IP, distance learning and live training.

In 2013 it was decided to re-name "The Association For Meridian & Energy Therapies" (The AMT) to "The Guild of Energists" (GoE) to broaden the application of modern energism beyond therapy into the mainstream. The transition from The AMT to GoE was completed and celebrated at the 2016 International Energy Conference in the UK.

Modern energists are proud to combine love and logic and are continuing to push the frontiers of modern energy research and application. We welcome all who understand the importance of energy to make the world a better place.
