Tama-Do (Way of the Soul) Academy, created in 1988 by Fabien Maman, the founding father of vibrational sound therapy, is dedicated to the evolution of human consciousness through research, teachings and creativity.
We offer techniques using Sound, Color and Movement® and Harmonizing Concerts® to ground the Soul in daily life.
Once a year we offer all of Tama-Do Academy’s Level I Practitioner Training Program in a 2-week Intensive Training in Europe. (This intensive is 3 weeks of work compressed into 2 weeks! It’s the best way to immerse yourself in the work! Experience in energy work is important.)
This year we are moving to our new Spiritual Home! Nestled high in an alpine meadow (1700 meters) surrounded by snow capped mountains, icy waterfalls, an ancient larch forest and flowers, flowers, flowers ~ this is Nature at its best ! In a sacred site on the Italian side of the Swiss Alps (which is also a UNESCO Heritage Site and Nature Preserve!) Tama-Do has found the perfect place for purity, tranquility, vibrancy and adventure for those who seek re-sourcing and renewal along their way. This Level I Summer Intensive, taught by Senior Instructor Terres Unsoeld includes all 9 of the Level I courses:
Psychology of Chinese Temperaments
(The only Level I course not included in the summer intensive is the Level I Review, which is always scheduled in the Spring of the following year. It is required in order to participate in Level II.)
Each technique, grounded in the classical traditions of music, mathematics, astrology and Chinese medicine, has been researched and developed by Fabien Maman over a course of 30 years.
Level I is taught simultaneously with Level II, which will be taught by Fabien Maman. Mornings and evenings will combine both groups in special activities. Mornings will begin with Tao Yin Fa together, a form of Qi Gong created by Fabien Maman. Evening gatherings include sacred chanting, over toning and meditation. The course will end with a Seasonal Harmonizing Concert. All activities will reflect the unique spiritual/energetic perspective of Tama-Do.
Tama-Do’s Level I Intensive creates the opportunity to reach far beyond tuning fork techniques. We offer the practice of giving, receiving and sharing as Human Beings. We ask that each student respect and join a sacred circle created by the group, so that the finer vibrations of wonder and joy may flourish. These teachings have been developed for more than 30 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....
