Tama-Do ~ The Way of the Soul to the Light

Tama-Do’s Level I training creates the opportunity to reach far beyond tuning fork techniques.

We are an international community of Energy Practitioners of the Light, with a summer base in Switzerland, a Sound Garden in Malibu, California, and Satellite Centers in UK, France and Canada.

Tama-Do means "the Way of the Soul to the Light." We use Energy Work, Spiritual Practice and Self Knowledge to receive the Light and pass it on to others.

We practice giving, receiving and sharing as Human Beings. We invite students to join a Sacred Circle, so that the finer vibrations of wonder and joy may flourish. These teachings have been developed for 40 years with love and care. We practice respect for the teachings, the teachers and the group. All expectation and previous modalities are left at the door so that we may enter with open hearts and open mind.

The Way of the Soul ~ it’s a beautiful journey which is never finished...

Level I Course Descriptions

Level I is a series of 9 Courses in Sound Healing, Color Therapy and Chi Movement® (Level I) plus a Level I Review.

All Tama-Do Level I Sound Healing and Tao Yin Fa Qi Gong® techniques have been created by FABIEN MAMAN, the founding father of vibrational sound therapy (Websters’ Dictionary). Fabien Maman’s evolutionary body of work ~ spanning more than 40 years and grounded in his sound/cellular research, as well as the Classical traditions of music theory, sacred geometry, Chinese medicine, aikido, Kototama, astrology and esoteric philosophy ~ changed the landscape of vibrational sound healing as we know it today.

Fabien Maman is the one who created the now famous technique using tuning forks and color light on acupuncture points for healing. His book, THE TAO OF SOUND, written with Terres Unsoeld, is the quintessential reference book for sound healing.

All Tama-Do Level I Color Therapy techniques follow the lineage of Color Masters Vicky Wall, Patricia Janusz, and Terres Unsoeld, spiritual healer of Tama-Do. Terres Unsoeld's classic book, ACCESSING THE WAY OF THE SOUL THROUGH COLOR helped to elevate the world of color therapy beyond the psychological and to a higher Spiritual perspective. After her book was published in 2007, people in New York City and Paris started wearing pink!

Level I Intensives are taught by Master Teacher TERRES UNSOELD, who was initiated by Fabien Maman 20 years ago, to develop the Levels I, II and III teachings into what they have become today. She has been Tama-Do Academy's Level I Teacher for more than 20 years, and is the creator of a new paradigm of healing ~ Shamanism of the Light ~ upon which Tama- Do Academy is now based. (Please see her book by the same name for more information: SHAMANISM OF THE LIGHT)

Terres Unsoeld's Level I Team consists of Tama-Do Teachers Carrie Mitchell (UK) and Lorne Auber (France). French translation is available for all Level I trainings.
NCCAOM PDAs provided.

All Tama-Do courses begin with an hour of Fabien Maman's Qi Gong of the Light®: his own form of Tao Yin Fa Qi Gong® or Zhineng Qi Gong to open the energy field.

Tama-Do Level I Courses include:

Level I Introduction to the Light (4 hours)

This is a foundational overview of the teachings of Tama-Do Academy, the Way of the Soul to the Light. We follow a journey of incarnation ~ from Star to Cell, and learn how the 9 Tama-Do Level I Techniques of Sound, Color and Movement® help to ground and express the Light of our Soul in the daily life.

We learn that Tama-Do works on 8 Levels of consciousness in the aura, and that the school follows a precise paradigm of healing. We experience Fabien Maman's precise sound protocols for the elements, organs, chakras and subtle bodies, described in his book, THE TAO OF SOUND, which tangibly illustrate the power of sound. We see Fabien Maman's amazing color slides of his sound/cellular experiment, which remind us that the Light in our cells mirror the Light of the Divine when activated by Sound, Color and Chi Movement®.

We learn about Terres Unsoeld's Shamanism of the Light, a new paradigm of healing, based on Energy Work, Spiritual Practice and Self Knowledge, upon which Tama-Do Academy is now based. We watch Terres Unsoeld's movie, BIRTH, A Noble Hero's Journey to the Light®, (the 1st of 8 movies) which wakes us up to the wonderful gift of being alive in the Light ! It's an inspirational, experiential Introduction!

1) Tama-Do Sound Harmonization® ~ Harmonizing the Chakras and Aura with Acoustic Instruments and Elemental Sounds around the Body (12 hours)

In 1981, French musician/composer and acupuncturist FABIEN MAMAN conducted a revolutionary sound/cellular experiment that changed the landscape of vibrational sound healing as we know it today (see THE TAO OF SOUND). For the next 40 years, he created precise sound protocols to harmonize the organs, chakras, subtle energy fields with the seasons, directions and stars.

One of Fabien Maman's most successful creations (aside from his tuning fork techniques) has been his Tama-Do Sound Harmonizations®.

With natural acoustic musical instruments set up around the body in the order of his Cycle of Fifths for the Chakras®, Fabien Maman's Tama-Do Sound Harmonizations® link the 8 Chakras of the body with the 5 Elements. Faery Shaman Terres Unsoeld developed the Shamanique aspect of this work by adding elemental sounds that corresponded with the overtones in the Nature.

We begin this workshop by immersing ourselves in the 5 Elements of Nature. On a 5 Element Field Trip outdoors, we dance and sing in the habitat of the earth, water, wood, fire and air, activating the elements within our bodies with the elementals of the Nature. We then bring the 5 Elements inside our classroom, learning how to play acoustic instruments and elemental sounds that mirror the resonance of their essence.

There are at least 5 forms of Tama-Do Sound Harmonization®: Tama-Do Sound Harmonization Classique® for group meditation (the original sound bath); Tama-Do Sound Harmonization® One on One for deep Sound Healing; Tama-Do Sound Harmonization 5 Element Concert® for professional musicians; Tama-Do Sound Harmonization "rock circle" for kids®; and Tama-Do Seasonal Harmonizing Concerts®. We will learn the protocols most appropriate for the skill level of our group.

By harmonizing the chakras and energy fields with acoustic instruments, elemental sounds, voice and color, participants melt into a deep resonance of ancestral memory. They harmonize with the 5 Elements of Nature and beyond...

2) TEP (Tama-Do Extra Points)® ~ balancing the emotions, chakras and aura with Sound, Color and Chi Touch (12 hours)

This wonderful Chi touch technique, created by Fabien Maman, which balances the chakras and subtle energy fields (auras) of the body, using chi in the etheric (physical) body, sound in the astral (emotional) body, and color in the mental body. Each session creates a whirlpool of energy, allowing deep transformation.

We learn to assess the energetic qualities of the chakras and subtle energy fields (auras); point location and the energetic meanings of 21 key energy points of the body and sound and color correspondences for the chakras.

We also learn Terres Unsoeld's Spiritual Scan: how to compare the 8 chakras and 8 subtle bodies of the aura with her 8 Stages of A Noble Hero's Journey to the Light®. These 8 auspicious occasions in our life offer opportunities to transform gates into Spiritual gifts, as spelled out in her book, SHAMANISM OF THE LIGHT and her 8 movies A NOBLE HERO'S JOURNEY TO THE LIGHT.

3) Tuning Forks on Acupuncture Command Points (Shu Points) and Assessment (18 hours)

Fabien Maman created the now famous technique of using steel tuning forks and color light on acupuncture meridians to heal the body, mind and spirit. His work inspired others to follow. Sound healing therapists, researchers and schools have all been inspired by his sound healing research and techniques, spelled out in his foundational sound healing book, THE TAO OF SOUND. With this workshop you have come to the Source and will learn the Master's precise protocol for sound healing with Fabien Maman's Classical Steel Tuning Forks.

In this comprehensive sound healing course, we learn the basic principals of the Chinese 5 Elements and acupuncture. We learn point location and Fabien Maman's unique sound correspondences for the 12 main organs and acupuncture meridians of the body. Basic principals of tuning fork use on acupuncture points will be taught, as well as complete treatment protocol from assessing and evaluating an individual’s pulses, meridian, elemental and energetic imbalances to selecting the appropriate musical interval and color to re-establish balance.

Terres Unsoeld's Sound Shiatsu Technique® is also taught, using Fabien Maman's Classic Steel Tuning Forks with precise musical intervals to chase negative energy along the zones of the acupuncture meridians. This technique offers easy relief to aches and pains in the knees, shoulders and ankles, etc.

Fabien Maman's Tuning Forks on Acupuncture Command Points is an excellent technique to empower the organs, bringing health and vitality to the physical body.

4) Tuning Forks on the Musical Spine® (12 hours)

Fabien Maman has created this powerful yet simple technique using his Classic Steel Tuning Forks, the musical modes of the seasons and color lights along the bladder meridian of the spine to harmonize the nervous system, chakras and subtle energy fields (aura). On a physical level, the Musical Spine® helps to relieve back pain and physical trauma. It also helps to relieve emotional pain caught up in cellular memories. On a more fine level, Fabien Maman’s Musical Spine® helps you to link with your central axis and your direction in life.

In this course we practice Fabien Maman's Classic Steel Tuning Fork and Color Lightprotocol along the bladder meridian of the spine. We also experience his precise sound protocols which link his

5) Tao Yin Fa Series II®, Psycho/Spiritual Movement (12 hours)

Fabien Maman's research shows that the most effective way to ground the healing energies of sound and color in the physical body is through qi gong. In 1984 he channeled his first of 5 series of Tao Yin Fa®, his own form of qi gong, which works on all levels of consciousness. He called his work, Qi Gong of the Light®.

Tao Yin Fa Series II® works on the psychological/spiritual level. Meditative in nature, and simple to do, this Tai Chi-like movement works in the 8 Directions, which correspond to the Chakras and Subtle Energy Fields (Auras).

We release emotional stress and the memory of psychological trouble in the body as well as in the energy field without talking about it! We learn to activate chi in the 8 directions by programming a positive outcome. Tao Yin Fa Series II® is a personal, energetic, Spiritual work.

Tama-Do Academy's Temperaments of the Soul®

6) The Temperaments of the Soul® (12 hours)

In the 80s, Fabien Maman was part of a study group consisting of acupuncturists, psychologists and energeticians in the South of France, to determine the link between the quality of our organs at birth and our physical, emotional and behavioral health. They created a system known as the Psychology of Chinese Temperaments ~ a diagnostic tool to recognize the Temperaments within ourselves as well as in others.

Fabien Maman has taught Temperaments in the Academy for nearly 40 years, which, over time, through Terres Unsoeld's influence, has expanded from psychology to a more Spiritual nature. Today, the Temperaments of the Soul® continues to evolve.

Temperaments of the Soul® is more deep than just the physical or the psychological aspect of the human being. There is no separation between earth and sky in this approach.

In this fascinating workshop, we will learn how to identify the characteristics of the 8 Temperaments. We will determine which 3 are the most present in our own character. Are we Shao Yang? Tae Yang? Or Yang Ming?

We will learn how to look at our Temperaments through the lens of Terres Unsoeld's Shamanism of the Light, a new paradigm of healing. Each of us has an Arrow of Destiny®, and understanding the gifts of our Temperaments can help us to best realize the Path of our Soul.

Each workshop participant will receive an individualized analysis of his or her unique temperament.

7) Color I: Accessing the Way of the Soul through Color ~ Self Healing with Color (18 hours)

Spiritual Healer and Revealer Terres Unsoeld follows the lineage of Color Masters Vicky Wall and Patricia Janusz. She is the author of ACCESSING THE WAY OF THE SOUL THROUGH COLOR (2007), a quintessential encyclopedia of the Spiritual archetypes of color - filled with her own breathtaking color photography of nature.

Terres Unsoeld developed her own line of Rainbow Color Silks and “Faery Essentials®”, (essences made from organic oils, organic grape alcohol and spring water), which work on the subtle levels of consciousness to reveal our inner Light.

In this transformative workshop, Terres Unsoeld takes us on an amazing journey through the Rainbow Colors using her Faery Essences and Rainbow Color Silks. We experience the impacts of color on our chakras and the subtle energy fields (aura). We learn to balance our energies and awaken our Divine Essence. We reawaken to the archetypal wisdom of each color, as they relate to the 7 Rays, Kabbalah and beyond...

As we shift to a New Age consciousness, we must learn new ways to open our Way of the Soul to the Light. This course is pivotal in the Tama-Do training. It's a beautiful journey....

8) Tuning Forks on the Subtle Body Command Points (8 Qi Mo) ~ Harmonizing the physical body, chakras and aura (18 hours)

Fabien Maman’s basic healing paradigm is that sickness happens first in the energy field, and that we must clear this negative energy first before deep healing and regeneration can occur on the physical level.

Based on this principal, he took the Chinese 8 Extraordinary Acupuncture Meridians (8 Qi Mo) which run the main functions of the body, and developed a powerful tuning fork technique which helps to elevate the energy of these 8 points on the body to the more subtle levels of consciousness in the chakras and the subtle energy fields (Aura). By healing the energy field first, deep healing can occur within the cells and DNA of the physical body.

Terres Unsoeld has added a psycho-Spiritual layer to this transformative course, by linking the subtle consciousness of the 8 chakras and subtle energy fields with the 8 Stages of Life of the Noble Hero's Journey. Each of the 8 Qi Mo opens an energy gate to a period of time in our life, where an Initiation has occurred, for the purpose of transformation.

We will learn how to empower the functions of these 8 master points, as well as the chakras and aura, using Fabien Maman's Classical Tuning Forks and Color Lights. These powerful techniques are used to elevate energy from the physical to a more subtle level of consciousness.

We will also contemplate our own life, as well as the lives of our clients, with Terres Unsoeld's fascinating Journey of the Noble Hero, which follows a trajectory of 8 Stages of our life (Birth, Ages 7, 21, 33, 42, 50, 60 and Transformation) -- and which correspond to the 8 Marvelous Vessels of the 8 Qi Mo.

This advanced tuning fork technique is a powerful tool for practitioners to balance their clients on all levels, from the physical to the spiritual. Students must first take Shu Points or Musical Spine before taking this course.

9) Color II: Color Healing and Diagnosis for Practitioners (18 hours)

It is known that if a client is physically ill, healing can occur not only from the physical level, but from the emotional, mental or spiritual level as well. Color can work at the speed of light to open the way of the Soul to healing. Color comes from the Light. We are all part of the Light.

Using Faery Shaman Terres Unsoeld Faery Essences®, Rainbow Color silks and lights, we will learn the fine art of color diagnosis and healing. These remarkable color tools are used to identify and release energy disturbances in the mind, body and spirit. Students will explore the archetypal meanings and consciousness of the 20 rainbow colors, as they relate to the 7 Rays, Kabballah, and beyond... Learn to balance the chakras and subtle energy fields (aura) of your family, friends and clients. Awaken their Soul's potentials through the Divine Consciousness of each Color. Experience long distance healing - an important tool to assist loved ones who are far away....

This is a practical, hands-on course, recommended for all healing practitioners who wish to add some new Light into their practice.

Ethics of the Soul (a new Level I course)

In these times, it is extremely important to solidify ones central axis as a moral and ethical human being, before embarking on a career of service. Terres Unsoeld's Ethics of the Soul has been added to the Level I training, to help us to formulate "Who we are as a Soul", "What is our Mission?", and "What is our Moral Code of Conduct?" that will guide us through our life.

Fascinating and challenging, this course takes us through the basic concepts of the 10 Commandments, the Eightfold Path of the Yogas, the Buddhist Eigthfold Path, Terres Unsoeld's Shamanique Etiquette of the Light. We are asked to choose the path that best fits our Arrow of Destiny, according to our Noble Hero's Journey to the Light.


Level I Review (18 hours)

In preparation for the Level I Test, we will review TEP, Shu Points, Musical Spine and the 8 Qi Mo and as well as Tao Yin Fa Series I and II.

We will review how to link scanning in the Auric Fields with pulses on the organic level, and make a synthesis for diagnosis.

This course is required for those wishing to become a Tama-Do Certified Practitioner. It is recommended that you have completed most of your 50 practice sessions before doing the review.
