5 Day Neoclassical Pulse training with Dr. Will Morris

August 6-10 2020

5 ‘Day pulse training with Will Morris

This course uses  Acutonics® to treat the Eight Extraordinary Vessels (8EV). The work is based on Han Dynasty methods of Chinese medicine which have historically been used for manual therapeutics, herbs and acupuncture. It is based on the book, Eight Extraordinary Vessels: Treating Shock and Trauma.

This is a focused 8EV method, related to the assessment, and transformation around family karmas as discovered through pulse assessment and applications of tuning forks.

Participants will use pulse diagnosis to choose one or more of the eight extraordinary vessels (8EV). The pulse provides direct feedback as to which vessel the body is using to compensate for life events.

Planetary archetypes are used to make decisions about selection of tuning forks relevant to the client’s concerns. The choice of tuning forks is also performed according to the research of Stanislov Grof and Richard Tarnis on birth trauma.

8EV are often treated using opening and balance points. This class focuses on using the pulse with vessel palpation to confirm the selection of the vessel to be treated. This allows the practitioner to assess the client’s adaptive response to the events in their life in terms of the 8EV. Then, evaluation of the treatment response is executed using the same methods.
