News From the Mothership November 2016
Fall at the Mothership is always a time of transitions and maintenance and this year is no exception. Although the weather has remained warm during the day evenings are cool and we’ve had a few frosts. The beautiful golden colors in the mountains have come and gone and in the garden our focus for October was on planting our fall crop of garlic, growing dome maintenance, and transitioning the dome from summer crops such as tomatoes, chili peppers, spinach and cucumbers to winter hardy vegetables, herbs and greens. The abundance of tomatoes has led to a full freezer of hardy soups, red sauces, and flash frozen tomatoes that will definitely carry us through winter. We now have lettuce, baby kale, chard, cilantro, carrots, beets, and parsley growing in the dome. Additionally, our Meyer Lemon tree has a large crop turning from green to yellow. We expect to harvest them over the next few weeks. All sorts of interesting salsa and veggie recipes call for these sweet lemons.
News from the Mothership - October 2016
Fall has definitely arrived, with sunny cool days, and cold nights, we've already had a frost and our mountains landscape has turned to a beautiful golden color. The outside gardens have been hit by frost, so just beets and carrots, the hardy vegetables remain. Donna is working diligently to convert the dome to winter hardy crops such as lettuce, arugula, chard and many types of kale.
From the Mothership September 2016
As summer winds down here at the Mothership we already feel the shift in the weather patterns that are a harbinger of Fall. Hail last week pummeled our outside gardens, and there were actually plows out in the mountains.
Dr. Alicia Villamarin and Project WU
If we were to pick anyone who exemplifies the type of person Acutonics embodies (or attracts, or “produces”), we’d have to put Dr. Alicia Villamarin at the top of the list.
An Interview with Erin Taylor: Energy Facilitator and Acutonics Practitioner
Erin Taylor grew up around music. Her mother played the piano. Her sister grew up to compose classical music. And Taylor played music by ear and sang. Though she didn’t just sing—a friend of the family was a music producer, and he’d sometimes record Taylor and her brother and sister. She’s been immersed in sound, then, for as far back as she can remember. So of course Acutonics would find her.
Eeka King: Bringing Acutonics to Australia
Eeka King, who practices Acutonics down in Brunswick Heads, Australia, came to Acutonics through chanting. “Several years ago, I’d started to experience benefits in my life from chanting certain sounds,” explains King, who’d just completed another week of teacher training with Ellen Franklin and Donna Carey.
Planetary Frequency: Myths, Archetypes and Musical Intervals
The vision for Acutonics has always been that we would create an in-depth applied methodology that facilitates people's healing and the innate wisdom of the body to heal. We are not "healers", we assist others in their journey and their re-discovery of the inborn wisdom of the body to shift and repair. We provide tools that aid in this process (tuning forks, chimes, and gongs) and use them in combination with a 5000-year-old medicine.
