January Astrology – Grand Cardinal Cross:  Diffuse Drama, Invoke Intention

Last month’s New Moon (NM) on 12/29, specifically the Jupiter/Uranus opposition set the tone for the month of January and for the entire New Year. With it came the activation and exaggeration of our need for major overhaul of any situation that would restrict complete and total freedom to experiencing greater soul growth. By January 7th the Sun conjuncts Pluto at 17°, empowering our conscious will and purpose to be the CEO of our own destiny.
Saturn: The planet with Ears

On December 22, 2016 we entered into the sign of Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, which is ruled by Saturn. The associated element is Earth and those born under this sign are ambitious, determined, and practical. Hard work, tradition, structure and stability are much-valued traits.
Certified Acutonics® Practitioner Profile: Laurie McDonald

Every first and third Thursday of the month, Certified Acutonics® Practitioner Laurie McDonald and her acupuncturist colleague Terrie Harris hold a free Women Veterans Clinic at the headquarters of Acupuncturists Without Borders in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Terrie started the clinic three years ago and asked Laurie to join during the fall of 2015. Participants sit in chairs arranged in a circle, and Terrie inserts five needles into each person’s ears, a protocol for stress and PTSD known as NADA.
Jude and Paul’s  Excellent Acutonics Adventure

In 1996 we had been working as clinical faculty at Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental medicine (NIAOM) in Seattle for several years. We thought of ourselves as fairly mainstream practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It was about that time that the school hired Donna Carey to be the new Clinical Director. To welcome her and find out more about our new boss, we took her to lunch. In sharing our backgrounds with each other, we learned that Donna had been employing the use of sound, in her prior practice in Wisconsin. Our interest was stimulated by her description of the use of tuning forks to stimulate acupuncture points. We asked her about receiving treatment with sound so we could have a first hand experience of the sound work. So began our excellent Acutonics adventure.

Whether known as teacher, sound practitioner, professional musician, composer, vocalist, wellness specialist, or ceremonialist, Lynn is committed to bring healing heart-by-heart, to assist in creating harmony and peace on the planet.

"I had been experiencing serious pain in my shoulder for about a year. X-rays, MRIs, three different physical therapists, stretching, steroid shots; I was hopeless. After ONE treatment with the tuning forks, my shoulder was better. I was amazed and truth be told, a little skeptical. But I've had six treatments and my shoulder has gotten better and better. Now I can reach straight over my head, pain-free!"
