Tama-Do Certified Practitioners®
Code of Ethics and Conduct®

This is a moral, ethical and legal contract between Tama-Do Academy and The Tama-Do Certified Practitioner® for the purpose of protecting the integrity of the Tama-Do teachings and work for future generations; and promoting the growth of the Academy so that Tama-Do Certified Practitioners can flourish and prosper.

As a Tama-Do Certified Practitioner, I , _____________________________ (NAME), pledge to conduct myself in accordance with the following principles:

1. I will honor the Purity and Integrity of Fabien Maman’s teachings, the Tama-Do work and the Tama-Do Lineage. I will protect and honor the Tama-Do Mission, as symbolized by the Tama-Do logo:

“Tama-Do (“Way of the Soul”), The Academy of Sound, Color and Movement®, founded in 1988 by Fabien Maman, one of the world’s leading experts on vibrational sound therapy, uses Sound, Color and Movement® and Seasonal Harmonizing Concerts® to ground the Soul in daily life. We are an Academy dedicated to the evolution of Human Consciousness through research, teachings and creativity. We offer trainings for practitioners as well as those who wish to further expand their consciousness through physical, spiritual and cosmic exploration. The Tama-Do name and emblem appear on all Tama-Do books, recordings, websites and other publications, assuring the reader that the work originates with the Academy established by Fabien Maman and faithfully conveys the integrity of his teachings and preserves the purity and integrity of the Tama-Do work and mission for future generations.”

2. I will commit to preserve the purity and integrity of Fabien Maman’s teachings and the Tama-Do work and mission for future generations. This means that I will always communicate to others from where I received the knowledge. I will not re-shape and re-name the Tama-Do teachings for my own personal use outside Tam-Do Academy.

3. I will honor the Teachers, the Teachings and the Group. I am aware that my energy affects the entire Tama-Do group. I will be supportive of fellow Certified Tama-Do Practitioners® as well as The Academy. I will help to build the Tama-Do Community. Share information. Stay in touch.

4. I will conduct my daily life according to the Tama-Do Practitioner Ethic (see attached):

5. I will continue to follow the Tama-Do Practice Protocol:

  • Practice Tao Yin Fa or QiGong every day.
  • Deepen my understanding of the Tama-Do Teachings and Techniques by reading and
  • comprehending The Tao of Sound and Accessing the Way of the Soul through Color.
  • Be “in the field” of the Tama-Do work. Embrace compassion, understanding and good will in my daily practice. Be open and willing to learn.
  • Be “on the path” of the Higher Consciousness, which is necessary to further the vibrational work of the Academy... This means furthering self awareness through additional practice such as Qi Gong, Tai Chi, meditation, reading, music, etc...

6. As a Tama-Do Certified Practitioner®, I will conduct my Tama-Do sessions consistent with the process and curriculum as developed and taught by Tama-Do, The Academy of Sound, Color and Movement®, and call it as such.

Tama-Do Practitioner Ethic

  • It’s a pure illusion to try to change others.
  • You can only change yourself. o Meditate 
o Do Chi-Gong o Tai Chi...
  • Love. Ask nothing. Expect nothing. We are a channel of love, like the sun pouring its rays on the Earth; like the rains watering the plants. We are filled with compassion. We are not different from the ones we heal. We are the same.
  • Cultivate purity of intention.
  • Respect our client’s process. They are the one’s on the journey, not us. They must 
follow their own rhythm of healing.
  • Honor the laws of Nature. Nothing must be forced before it’s time.
  • Let go. Have absolute confidence in and complete love for the Great Force which presides over life. It doesn’t mean “do nothing”, but demands that one agrees to live what is to be lived and that there is no such thing as chance. Once we have done everything in our power to prepare, the rest is “in our hands”, guided by the powers of the Universe.
  • Perseverance and Patience. Practice, learn and exercise.
  • Become Transparent. Leave ourselves at the door.
  • Believe.
  • Humility. We serve. We make mistakes. It is not about us. We serve.
  • I will always remember that the Soul of the Academy is the People. We are here to serve the elevation of the consciousness of the people. As they change, we change. We are never static in our work. 
Obstacles to watch out for:
  • Knowing it all. It leads to power.
  • Desire to “heal” or “fix” your client.
  • Will power. “I want to know it all or fix it all!” • Judgement. 
“We can teach people nothing. We can only help them discover that they already possess within themselves everything there is to learn.” - Galileo
