Autumn: Embracing the Abundance of the Harvest

1 Oct, 2017
We are writing this on the Autumnal Equinox and just after Mercury retrograde. What a great time of the year. Harvest is still being gathered, but you can see the cycle of waning in the plants and leaves. It is a time of balance, a pivot point between the yang energy of Summer and yin of Winter. In Chinese medicine Autumn is related to the metal element, but right now there is much Earth bounty as well.

West Coast Acutonics 2017 Acutonics Camp and Upcoming Classes

1 Sep, 2017
Katie Mink and Laurie Herron of West Coast Acutonics hosted the 4th Annual Acutonics Camp in Mt Shasta, California, July 28 – 31. Campers came from as far away as Taiwan and the Yukon and it was a wonderful, harmonious event with great food, excellent teaching, and mentoring. Jill Davis wrote: “Thank you so much for sharing your camp experience and beautiful lake with me! I took away a sense of peace and greater self-awareness that I truly needed. I'm looking forward to next year’s camp”.

Tuning-In to The Power of the Microcosmic Orbit

1 Sep, 2017
In Acutonics classes we emphasize the importance of the Microcosmic Orbit as a Taoist practice of inner alchemy. The co-mingling of heavenly and earthly energies facilitated by the activation of the orbit is considered to expand our connection to Source and the knowledge of the eternal nature of our being. It’s a reflection of this eternal nature, manifesting in temporal reality. The practice of circulating qi in the Microcosmic Orbit acts to transform the denser energy of three-dimensional reality to a more etheric, higher frequency form of energy. It elicits conscious awareness of our nature as beings made up of light and information.

Sun: The Star We Know Best

1 Aug, 2017
The Sun is the center of our universe, around which all other planets evolve. The most basic qualities of the Sun relate to the self, vision, illumination, numinosity, enlightenment, consciousness, collective consciousness, the father, the divine child, and the solar hero. The movement of the Sun through the zodiac also provides a perennial reenactment of the cycles of life, birth, death, and rebirth. The Sun helps us be fully aware and truly conscious, able to access the prophetic nature of Apollo to find our own truth and innate potential.

Accessing the Field of all Possibilities

1 Aug, 2017
As Acutonics practitioners, we use sound as a vehicle to create vibratory states that aid in healing and transformation. From Acutonics Level I, we work with intervals created through the combination of two tuning forks to create “spaces in between”. These spaces contain overtones that create portals into other realms of being and extra-dimensionality. In Acutonics Level II, we access ancient wisdom traditions and introduce shamanic tools as a way to connect with frequencies of divine vibration. Tibetan bowls and bells, drums, didgeridoos and other healing instruments from a variety of cultures are explored. These sound tools are often used in daily shamanic practices as a method for shifting consciousness, and reaching higher level of resonance with the divine realms. Fortunately, today we have growing awareness and vision within science that has moved beyond Newtonian principles to incorporate these ancient wisdom practices that were previously classified as religious, spiritual, or superstitious.

Sedna, Non-duality & Connection Through the Field

1 Jul, 2017
Non-duality can be described as non-separation—what we might think of as the Wu Qi or the Tao, the undifferentiated oneness. It is in this field of oneness that we find the origins of our commonality. It’s here that we are free from the distinctions of self and other, that we realize our connection to the universal expression of life force. We have found the frequency of Sedna to be extraordinarily resonant with this energy and often include her in sessions with this in mind. Sedna manifests the confluence of the active energy of super-conduction and the energy of grounding, nurturing, and connection to the deepest yin. She is both activating, upward and outward moving and consolidating, cooling and grounding. Sedna manifests the stillness that brings forth powerful awakening, the seed that after stillness and consolidation, germinates and rises upward to express its full potential.

Traveling Gongs

1 Jul, 2017
Judy Bernard a Licensed Acutonics teacher and senior faculty member travels extensively with her gongs. She shared this recent adventure with us. "About a year ago I moved to Nashville, Tennessee, not a place I’d given much thought to or even wanted to visit. We were brought here by my Beloved’s work, and after finding a place to live I began to research things to do in the area. I was really pleased to discover the Nashville Chooses Peace Festival. None of our belongings had arrived yet, no gongs to create a booth, so I decided to volunteer and have fun. I met the most amazingly kindhearted group of people that have become my best friends here. I must say Nashville is the kindest city I have ever been too. I had found my pod!"

Connecting With Our Heart Field

1 Jun, 2017
With the approach of summer, the time of the fire element, the energy of our hearts is at its highest potential. What better time to enhance our understanding of and connection to the spirit and field of the heart. It is said that the heart spirit, the shen, is a spark of the fire of heaven that is bestowed on us by the stars when we are born. In the Chinese, Vedic and Hebrew traditions it is known that this spirit resides in the center of the heart. The shen guides the heavenly spark into expression of our purist potential. It is the seat of inspiration, insight, awareness and compassion.

Using Source Points for Growth and Transformation: Archetypes and Alchemy

1 May, 2017
The heavenly given or original qi is said to be retained and to linger in the “Source Points”. Ordinarily they are thought of as points that provide exceptional access to the channel and organ with which they are associated. Some Chinese medicine references say that the source points of the yin organs tonify the energy of the organ and source points of the yang organs expel pathogens, or release excess in the body.

Mars: Harnessing the Energy of the Warrior

1 Apr, 2017
Mars represents the Warrior archetype. This archetype possesses the capacity for combativeness, ambition, self-preservation (will and ability to survival) and getting what you want. Mars is the personification of Yang energy, the masculine, and sexual energy. It fuels the energy for competition, drive, ego and taking action. Mars is the energy we use when we project ourselves, and our personal power out into the world.
