FACULTY, CLASSES & TRAINING 2018
(Friday October 12th ~ Monday October 15th, 2018)
In the morning we will teach theory, how to use the tuning forks, and demonstrate protocols. These protocols will be written out and students will get a mini-manual. The protocols can be strictly physical i.e. putting the otto 128 etc. on specific areas for specific conditions and they can be auditory and verbal i.e. using written scripts that a student reads to another student and then taps the forks or plays a sound healing instrument. Or using very simple verbal affirmations with sound. And we will also have energy based protocols based on non-verbal sweeps of the energy body with the tuning forks based on energy currents.
In the afternoon the students will use their mini manuals and practice protocols they want to experience. We will oversee and guide as necessary.
