Previous attendance at a 4-day Foundation Intensive in Boulder (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017) is the prerequisite for this class.  Until July 4, 2017, only Foundation Intensive graduates may register for this course. After this date, if space is available, students who have completed the home study option and obtained instructor permission may also register.

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 taken at least two days of class with Dr. Sankey in person.   There is an alternate pathway to receive instructor approval, and you can find details below.

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.

If you have not fulfilled the prerequisite with prior classes with Dr. Sankey, or permission of instructor,  please do not register for this intensive until obtaining instructor permission.  If you do register before properly fulfilling the prerequisites, your registration will be cancelled and you will need to re-register after you have fulfilled the prerequisites.   If you registration needs to be cancelled because you registered without having fulfilled the prerequisites, your deposit will be refunded, less a $25 administrative fee.
