Since the late 1980s Sági’s interests embraced natural healing, using the principles of information medicine. She has developed the method of New Homeopathy pioneered by the Viennese scientist Erich Körbler as an encompassing method for diagnosing and treating human health problems whether in the presence of the patient and at a distance (“Holistic Information-Medicine”). She lectured on this method in seminars in Hungary, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, as well as Japan. She has worked with Ervin Laszlo in developing the theory of the Akashic field, providing examples of healing through that field and elaborating its implications for the new science paradigm developed by Laszlo.

The Luxembourg Peace Prize
The Luxembourg Peace Prize is the highest European acknowledgement awarded every year to persons, groups and organizations worldwide for tangible actions towards Peace.
The Prize for ‘Outstanding Peace Activists 2017’ was awarded to the Club of Budapest (COB), its initiator Professor Ervin Laszlo, Chief Creative Director Anne-Marie Voorhoeve and Science Director Dr. Mária Sági, for their work of building bridges among cultures, and for their promotion of a ‘Planetary Consciousness’ on the theme of ‘Unity in Diversity’, and of supercoherence between human beings.
During the Awards Ceremony at the European Parliament Building in Luxembourg, the initiator of the COB, the world renowned scientist and systems philosopher Ervin László, presented the keynote speech via a Skype transmission, in which he underlined the fundamental role of planetary consciousness and of supercoherence for the establishment of a global society, not based on competition, but on cooperation, co-evolution, empathy and compassion. He invited everyone to join such work which the COB has been bringing forward for 20 years.
“We really and truly can, through our consciousness, change the consciousness that dominates the world. That is our chance, the opportunity we face. It is an idea whose time has come.”
