Tuning with Chinese Medicine – Celestial Gateway Activations
19 & 20 February 2022
9am to 4pm each day
Gold Coast – Marine Rescue Hall, 139 Duringan Street, Currumbin QLD
The ‘Celestial Gateway Activations’ are a magical series of techniques that oriental medicine practitioners have been using for well over a thousand years. These techniques are not exclusive to acupuncturists, herbalists, or oriental massage therapists, and have shown to be very effective when using tuning forks, and sound healing methods.
Students will receive a copy of the book First Aid with Tuning Forks: Facial Rejuvenation’ as a bonus.
Welcome to the ‘Ancient Oriental Medicine Activation’ workshop series brought to you by Tuning Fork Therapies Australia. The design of this workshop series is to give you additional tools to apply in your tuning fork clinics immediately.
In this workshop, we are excited to present the ‘Celestial Gateway Activations’, which look to transform/regulate/balance the body chakras, in particular the Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown.
Chinese medicine considers the Heart to be the Emperor organ. From it, harmony can be achieved but disharmony can also be generated across the entire body, the face included. Therefore, all activations will, at least in part, harmonise the Heart too.
So, what are the Celestial Gateway Activations that you will learn in this workshop?
Windows of Heaven/Windows of the Sky (Tiān Chuāng)
First mentioned in the Chinese medicine Classic, the Líng Shū (Spiritual Pivot) roughly 2000 years ago. This activation targets the upper body, throat, face, and head to ensure a strong connection between the body and mind/brain. The throat itself is one of the most complex, enigmatic, and sacred of all the chakras/energy centres – it is the gateway to the stars and extra-dimensional perception.
Amongst other things, this activation helps to balance the throat, thereby ensuring a strong connection between the body and mind/brain. This is vital for patients that struggle with taking ideas and moving them into action. Or people that stick with old processes because they can’t think up new, and better ways, of doing something.
Kidney Spirit Gate/Doors (Shèn Guān)
This fascinating activation is as controversial as it is transformational and is one of the most argued about techniques in Chinese medicine. One camp suggests it is ‘tree-hugging hippie crap’, whereas the other camp have seen too many clinical examples of the healing power this activation offers.
We are in the second camp and are so excited to be offering you an activation that is mind and body altering. Located over the chest wall and Heart (Emperor organ), this activation targets our ‘Five Spirits’, which are five different aspects of our soul that define who we are as a person. Even though we are all unique, we all still have the same Five Spirits, they are just operating at different strengths and weaknesses.
This activation looks to balance out the Five Spirits, to invigorate emotional and mental health. Interestingly, there is another Five Spirits activation on the back, called the ‘Urinary Bladder Channel Wǔ Shén (Five Spirits)’. This activation is taught in the ‘Spiritual and Emotional Health Activations’ workshop.
The Four Gates (Sì Guān)
This activation enhances energy in the body in as little as ten minutes. It also has a profoundly calming and relaxing effect on the patient. This activation can be done on its own or in combination with a lot of other activations taught throughout this workshop series.
It is a marvelous feeling to be both energised and calm at the same time. In Chinese medicine theory, this gives you the tools to think up ideas and to then action those thoughts.
This activation also reminds the body and mind to shut down when it is time to rest, before kick-starting everything again when it’s time to act.
The Beard of Truth
Originally from the Kabbalah texts, it is an activation that merges ancient Jewish mysticism with Dàoist Chinese acupuncture point descriptions. In Chinese medicine thinking, the face is the ‘Mirror of the Organs’. This activation targets a series of acupuncture points around the face to help balance out the relationship between the organs and face.
Further, the face is also the ‘Mirror of the Heart Shén’, or Spirit/Soul/Mind. Therefore, this activation can also help to balance your emotional state, enhance memory, even assist with sleeping.
Bright Foyer, Watchtower, Court, Fence and Shield
First mentioned in the Chinese medicine Classic, the Líng Shū (Spiritual Pivot) roughly 2000 years ago. This activation targets acupuncture points on the face, and body, to help balance out the relationship between the organs and face. In Chinese medicine thinking, the face is the ‘Mirror of the Organs’, therefore, to ensure a healthy-looking face, one needs to target the organs.
“Huang Di said, ‘The Bright Foyer is the nose. The Watchtower is between the eyebrows. The Court is the forehead. The Fence is the cheek. The Shield refers to the area around the Ear Door [SJ 21/TE 21]. For these places and in between one would desire that they be correct and large, so that from ten paces all the externals can be seen. If they are like this it means long life and one must hit a hundred years’” (Wu 1993, p.172).
There are literally hundreds of different activations that have been created over the past 2000 years. This workshop series is designed to give you the most clinically relevant activations regarding tuning forks and sound healing. Ones that can be immediately incorporated into your tuning fork repertoire.
We hope you enjoy the workshop series as much as we have enjoyed researching/writing it.
