The Body Tune Up ~ A Holistic Bodywork Training

April 13-19 + 28

Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT

The BODY TUNE UP is an incredible modality that has a dual focus: Healing Leaky Gut Syndrome and its many symptoms as well as Spinal Alignment to relieve pain and improve vitality. This 2-step approach can transform your health and relieve chronic conditions.

You will learn the art of Applied Kinesiology - using muscle testing to assess the body and get direct answers about what it needs. You will learn to balance meridians, reset valves in the digestive tract to stop toxin recycling, heal the colon with a 14-21 day meal plan, and use a gentle technique to press all the vertebrae, ribs, hips, sacrum, cranials, and more into perfect alignment. This can have profound effects on people suffering from a wide range of chronic conditions and acute symptoms.


LEARN all this and more in an all-inclusive 7-day training at Milldale Farm in Fairlee, VT with a supervised practicum clinic! You will leave with the skills to offer the work to clients, family, or friends AND the firsthand experience of receiving the work every day and following the meal plan which will be a powerful personal healing experience! We will have a follow up session on 4/28 for everyone to share their experience completing the meal plan at which point you will receive your certificate!

In our overstressed, fast-paced world, it is no wonder over 80% of Americans have Leaky Gut Syndrome and learn to live with mediocre health. Join us for this training and let's work to raise our society's standard of living, by reminding people what true health feels like!

Wise Secrets of Aloha ~ Kahuna Bodywork Training

with Harry Uhane Jim

April 24-26

Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT

Enter into the realm of Lomilomi, the traditional Hawaiian Approach to bodywork. Lomilomi holds the premise that body, mind and spirit (trinity) participate in its evolution - healing. The work creates a temple…a sacred space for the body’s consciousness (the emotional body). Access for support and communication to the emotional body is in the HA - the breath.

In this workshop you will learn the following tools:

  • BONEWASHING ~ Clearing stuck memories from the skin of the bones

  • CREATING SPACE ~ Using gravity and breath to create expansion

  • LOMI HA ~ Coaching receivers in Sacred Breathwork

  • LAU LIMA ~ Laying on of hands (Hawaiian style energy work)

  • PO'O ~ Cranial Work

  • KALA'E ~ Clearing the Rivers of Life

  • MANIFESTING THROUGH PUL'E ~ Prayer as a tool for healing

These techniques are very effective at healing pain, working through trauma, and clearing stuck emotions and unhealthy patterns.

Harry is an inspirational teacher who will share his decades of experience and wisdom with a hearty dose of laughter. On a personal note, I had a profound experience working with Harry, and that is why I am hosting him. I highly recommend this course for people seeking to delve deeper into healing. 

 

E’ KOMO MAI! ~ Come connect with your power to heal!

Hawaiian Massage Training ~ with Patti Miller

September 1-12

Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT

Learn the traditional art of Heartworks Lomi Lomi, an ancient style of Hawaiian Massage passed down by Kahunas and shared with the world by Sherman Dudoit.

In this residential, all-inclusive retreat, you will learn a full-body massage routine that emulates the ocean waves of Hawaii, providing a blissful, heart-opening experience for the receiver. Clients love this style and it can easily fit into a 60 or 90min spa session. It is simple enough for beginners to learn and is a powerful addition to the tool belt of experienced practitioners.

You will also learn Passive Structural Alignment, the perfect companion to Heartworks, which itself was originally paired with the ancient Hawaiian Bone-Setting tradition. We will teach you to press the bones of the spine, ribs, hips, cranials, universal joints, and more into perfect alignment. This treats the root cause of nagging back/neck/shoulder pain, headaches, and low energy and prepares the body for the massage. The massage in turn, helps relax and detox the muscles and tissue, promoting the new alignment.

The final 3 days of the training will be Tandem Lomi Training. Tandem massage, also known as 4-Hands Massage, is when 2 practitioners massage a single receiver in perfect synchronicity. This is my absolute favorite thing to give and receive and I am particularly excited to offer this as part of the training.

Training begins with a Ho'oponopono Ceremony, a Hawaiian tradition for clearing blockages from our life and creating space in us to receive the transmission of Lomi Lomi.

This training is all-inclusive! Accommodation and 3 home-cooked meals a day are provided as well as daily yoga classes and free time for swimming at nearby Lake Fairlee.

TUITION & FINANCIAL AID
Tuition: $2200 ~ includes on-site lodging and 3 meals a day.
A $300 deposit will reserve your space. Financial Aid is available.
