ELECTIVE: UNWINDING TRAUMA:
ACUTONICS®, THE EIGHT EXTRAORDINARY VESSELS AND FIBONACCI
“Music creates order out of chaos; for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity upon the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous.”
— Yehudi Menuhin
The Eight Extraordinary Vessels provide a gateway to psycho-emotional health and expanded consciousness. They facilitate,link and bridge the physical, energetic and emotional structures of the body, and offer an exceptional way to address trauma. Trauma affects our lives on all levels, impacting relationships within families, work environments, ethnic groups, societies, and the natural world. Trauma is at the root of disease. Getting to the substrate of where we carry trauma, and to address and unwind it, can allow for remarkable release—revealing more of our essential nature.
In this two-day elective, we will explore the different levels of trauma and deepen our knowledge of the Eight Extraordinary Vessels and other key points that are excellent to treat trauma and unwind the patterns that limit us whether familial, cultural or environmental. You will be introduced to the Acutonics Ohm® Fibonacci tuning forks, which follow a sequence of numbers that is a never-ending spiral of movement, the sacred geometry at the foundation of life, that provides a powerful aid in the transition of limiting patterns. We will explore sound-layering as a vehicle to promote harmony and health and the unification of the three levels of healing - emotional, physical and spiritual.Through lecture, class discussion and clinical practicum, incorporating the use of Acutonics® planetary and Acutonics Ohm® Fibonacci tuning forks, we will explore ways to gently but deeply access and address trauma that is so prevalent in our practices and personal lives today.
Acutonics Integrative Medicine incorporates the knowledge of sacred geometry at its very core in utilizing the sound frequencies of the planets and heavenly spheres along acupuncture points and meridians that are part of the physical body. In this two-day elective you will deepen your knowledge of sacred geometry, the Fibonacci sequence (how it relates to all of life) and the history, origins, and development of the Fibonacci Process™. You will gain experience in the use of the Acutonics Fibonacci tuning forks, on the chakras and Eight Extraordinary Meridians, as you gain knowledge and insights into the appropriate use of these powerful tools in clinical practice.
