The Body Tune Up ~ A Holistic Bodywork Training

with Benj Spound

April 25 - May 1 + May 10
Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT


Learn THE BODY TUNE UP, a holistic bodywork modality with two parts that can make a profound difference for people struggling with chronic pain, digestive discomfort, and other ailments.

 

Step 1 is Healing Leaky Gut Syndrome and its many symptoms, balancing the meridian system and restoring peace to the body.

 

Step 2 is bringing the bones of the back into proper alignment to relieve pain and improve vitality.


You will begin by learning the art of Applied Kinesiology - using muscle testing to assess the body and get direct answers about what it needs. Then you will learn to balance meridians and heal Leaky Gut by manually resetting valves in the digestive tract and using a 14 day meal plan to heal the colon. Thirdly, you will learn to muscle test the alignment of bones and apply a technique based on Orthobionomy to gently press misaligned vertebrae, ribs, hips, sacrum, cranials, and more back into place. 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. There will be a supervised practicum clinic on the last full day to test your new skills on members of the community! You will leave with the skills to offer this work to clients, family, or friends AND the firsthand experience of receiving the work every day which may be a powerful self-healing experience for you! You will be expected to follow the meal plan yourself for 14 days. We will provide your food for the week you are in training, and you will be on your own for the 2nd week. We will have a follow up session on 5/10 for everyone to share their experience completing the meal plan at which point you will receive your certificate! We do this so that you will have the authority to recommend the meal plan to others (which doesn't work so well if you haven't done it yourself).

In our overstressed, fast-paced world, it is no surprise that 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!

Intro to Lomi Lomi ~ Hawaiian Massage Training with Benj Spound

May 18-22, 2022

The Heron Educational Center for the Human Spirit, Westport, MA

Lomi Lomi is the traditional massage style of Hawaii. It has been passed down since ancient times by the Kahunas, the mystics, healers, and master energy workers of Hawaii. Each island had its own unique lineages of Lomi, but each shared the belief that humans are more than the physical body. Their work encompassed the entire spectrum of a person…physical, psychological, and spiritual. It is highly effective at integrating the different areas of the body, clearing blockages, moving energy, and bringing people back into a sense of alignment. It is very meditative work, and students were expected to do their own inner work before working with others.

In modern times, Lomi has become popular around the world. Its movements are inspired by the ocean, and much like sitting in the waves, receiving Lomi can be relaxing yet energizing, gentle yet deep, soothing yet powerful. It can bring people into deep trances, or help them feel more grounded. There is a heavy focus on the breath as a tool to move energy…from both the giver and receiver.

In this 5-day workshop, you will learn a full-body routine that incorporates techniques from 3 different lineages from Kauai, Maui, and the Big Island. It will be very hands-on; you will be giving and receiving sessions every day.

Material covered will include:

~Cascading wave-like strokes from the heart-centered, meditative tradition of Sherman Dudoit and the Kahunas of Maui

~Rhythmic forearm and elbow strokes, deep stretches, twists, and hip openers from the lineage of Kahu Abraham Kawai’i.

~Creating space in-between the vertebrae and joints through the application of gravity and leverage with the breath from modern-day Kahuna Harry Uhane Jim.

~Lomi HA ~ Breathwork as a tool for releasing blocked energy

~ We will also focus on the meditative and contemplative aspects of the tradition with an emphasis on grounding meditation.

This class is open to people of all experience levels…from total beginners to long-time practitioners. The routine you will learn is enough to begin a new practice or a wonderful addition to an existing practice.

 

Daily Schedule:

Arrive at 8:30am to settle in
Morning Class: 9am-12:30pm
Lunch Break: 12:30pm-2pm
Afternoon Class: 2pm-5pm

 

We will do my best to stay on schedule, but ask that you keep your evenings flexible if possible in case things come up that cause us to run a little late. You may also find that things come up for you with this work, and it is nice to have spaciousness to let it settle and integrate if possible.

 

If you would like to book a private session to experience the work before the class, let us know and we can schedule it.

If you have any questions, you can contact us, at vermontholisticbodywork@gmail.com or 802.793.5764.

Lomi HA Breathwork Training with Harry Uhane Jim

June 9-12, 2022

Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT

Join us for a 4 day intensive breathwork training with Kahuna, teacher, and author Harry Uhane Jim. We are so grateful to have Uncle Harry returning to Milldale Farm for the 4th time. Each workshop presents a new opportunity to delve deeper into our inner landscape, and cultivate experience with this work that you can then share with others! Whether you've done this work a hundred times or this is the first, you are sure to have an experience! This class will focus on Lomi HA ~ Ancient Hawaiian Breathwork for trauma recovery and connecting to our higher selves.


Harry's course description:

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... a connecting space... A safe space place for the body’s consciousness (the emotional body).

 

Access for support and communication to the emotional body is in the HA - the breath. 

The opportunity for healing is the convergence of time, space, and will. It is incidental, coincidental, and serendipitous.

 

Lomilomi grants portal to this Process. We are empowered by and centered on authenticity, creating the momentum of ease and grace to navigate healing.

THE FOCUS: TRUAMA RECOVERY, SOUL CONTACT, TIMELINE TRAVEL, AND TRANSMUTING NEGATIVE ENERGY TO POSITIVE OUTCOMES, AND PERMANENT SHIFT IN PROSPECTIVE PLATFORMS.  There is proven protocol I’ve used myself for 35 years, And before me thousands of years of repeating healings.

 

Yes to learn how is To experience .  Join us for a lifestyle expansion through joyous skills held dear to the Hawaiians of old. 

 

Aloha, Harry

Temple Style Lomi ~ Hawaiian Massage Training

with Patti Miller

September 2-9, 2021

Milldale Farm Center for Wellness, Fairlee, VT


Lomilomi is an ancient form of bodywork passed through the generations by the Kahunas of Hawaii. Temple-Style Lomi is a modern lineage brought to the world by Kahu Abraham Kawai'i. In this training you will learn a full-body routine that can be the foundation for a new massage practice or an amazing addition to your current menu. 

 

This lineage primarily uses forearm and elbow strokes that flow across the body in a rhythmic, wave-like motion, inducing a trance-like state of deep relaxation. It also incorporates a variety of manual stretches, deep twists, and joint rotations which creates expansion in the body and improves flexibility and range-of-motion.

You will learn to generate mana (energy) through HA Breathwork and a dance step called the Kale'leau, which allows you to glide around the massage table. Breathing deeply through the heart center, this energy is shared with the receiver through the bodywork.

 

This is a more advanced training. However, there are no prerequisites and anyone who feels called to come is welcome!

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. On the final day, you will receive a certificate honoring you for becoming a carrier of this powerful work.

Tuition includes on-site accommodation and 3 Home-cooked meals a day. 7 rustic cabins may also be reserved by individuals or couples for an additional fee. In your free time, enjoy optional daily yoga classes and free time for hiking or swimming at Lake Fairlee.

 

If you have any questions, you can reach Benj Spound, the event organizer, at vermontholisticbodywork@gmail.com or 802.793.5764.
