$200 deposit is charged upon registration.
Promotion code “ESOTERIC-ADV” activates $100 early bird discount.
Previous attendance at a 4-day Foundation or Advanced Intensive (Boulder: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017) is the prerequisite for this class.
The focus of the Advanced Intensive will be integrating Esoteric Acupuncture into both professional and personal practice. The Foundation Intensive is expanded upon by providing a framework for selecting appropriate treatment patterns according to the client’s level of consciousness and level of Shen disturbance and balance. There will be ample time to ask specific questions on techniques, tools of activation, processes, patterns and protection.
Because this is an advanced class, the prerequisite is having attended a 4-day Foundation or Advanced Intensive (Boulder: 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), or attendance at an Esoteric Acupuncture Level 1 Intensive (2 days) plus a Level 2 Intensive (2 days) at other locations. Exceptions may be made for international students outside of North America who request a home-study option, contact us for details.
New material will be included so past students are welcomed! The intensive format will include lectures, discussion and extensive hands-on practice. Lecture handouts, acupuncture needles and massage tables are provided. The classes are small enough that each student can receive personal supervision during the practical sessions on technique and point location from Dr. Sankey.
The intensive begins with the Support the Mountain nutritional course, which focuses on how nutrition, particularly fresh, raw whole foods can support higher planes of consciousness. The physical, astral and spiritual aspects of various biochemical elements and associations with Chinese Five Element Principles will be presented: Fire-Potassium, Earth-Magnesium, Metal-Sulpher, Water-Calcium, and Wood-Sodium.
If you are visiting from out of town, you will find that our convenient course location is easily accessible from the Denver airport via bus or shuttle. Also, there are many restaurants as well as a Whole Foods Market within a short walk of the hotel, so it is not necessary to rent a car. You will find lodging and transportation information including shuttle services and how to take the public bus on this page.
