Paul + Jude Ponton—Their Journey in Sound

“Acutonics is more than what we do,” say Jude and Paul Ponton, “it’s who we are.” Acutonics is just that for many people who’ve experienced it, who teach it, who use it in their healing practices. But for the Pontons, who’ve been married for over 46 years, who both have roots in telephonic communication (let that one sink in for a bit), who’ve known Donna since their days as clinical faculty members at the now(sadly)-defunct Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) in Seattle and whose first experience of Acutonics (before it was even known as Acutonics) was in the basement of Donna and Ellen’s early-1900s home in the Capitol Hill section of Seattle and who since meeting Donna (and Marjorie de Muynck and then Ellen) have been a part of almost everything Acutonics-related—from attending the first Acutonics Level I workshop (in 1998) to collaborating with Donna and Ellen and MichelAngelo on the writing of Acutonics: From Galaxies to Cells Planetary Science, Harmony and Medicine
Uranus: A World on its Side

On January 20, 2017 we entered into the zodiac sign of Aquarius ruled by the planet Uranus. The associated element is air and those born under this sign are often deep thinkers, love mental stimulation, and are original, independent, concerned about helping others and fighting for what they believe. They have a desire for freedom and equality for all people.
February Astrology Report from Byron Bay, Australia

Powerful Eclipses! Wow what an incredible month of planetary geometry in the heavens. We have 2 potent eclipses this month (being the 1st set of 2 for the year). The Lunar Eclipse (Penumbral) at the Full Moon (22° Leo) on the 11th of February and the Solar eclipse (Annular) at the New Moon later in the month, February 26th at 8° Pisces. An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon. The next Annular Solar eclipse will not be until December 2019.

A Season for Renewal

Greek mythology tells us that Demeter, the goddess of the harvest, in deep mourning over the abduction of her beloved daughter Persephone by Hades, caused the earth to be frozen and barren. A deal was struck with Hades to allow Persephone to leave the underworld for two thirds of the year, and during this time Demeter allows the plants and crops to flourish. Each year as Persephone returns to Hades the earth experiences winter.

"It was a gift to learn from a teacher (Sue Wadden) who has so much knowledge of classical acupuncture. I can now use tuning forks on my patients who prefer not to have needles."
