Process Acupressure Workshops

Process Acupressure class Descriptions

Process Acupressure 1: Gateway to Soul (PA1A)

Process Acupressure (PA) is a simple, yet profound, holistic method that combines traditional acupressure (to a fully-clothed body) with a process approach to consciousness. It facilitates healing and the natural growth process that arises from within the individual. Process skills are taught that facilitate clarity-in mind, emotions, and spirit. Soul centered development is emphasized. Although acupressure is a lifelong study, this course will empower you to work effectively with energy flow in the body including both meridians and chakras, toward greater balance. You will learn tools that give you confidence. PA can be used alone for self-help or easily given to another. It can also be combined with another body modality. For example, our work with the Great Central Channel strengthens the energetic pathway of the spine and is an excellent complement to Acupuncture, Chiropractic, CranioSacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, rehab modalities, and more. state (This is one of our two Foundation Workshops. The other is CA1:  Clinical Acupressure 1:  Basic Applications. See CA Workshops for description of CA1.)

In this workshop you will learn:

  • a simple but powerful acupressure method to balance body energy
  • how to combine bodywork with psychological-spiritual process skills
  • how to empower self and client toward greater understanding and responsibility for health and growth
  • to focus health and development in the most fundamental strength and wisdom of one’s own soul
  • how to use the skills on yourself to further your own growth
  • Chakra Tai Chi

Soul Illumination

 A new workshop by Aminah Raheem, Ph.D, Borrego Springs, California: January 12-15, 2017 

Start the New Year with the perspective of your own true nature, that Divine template that was born with your soul. Rediscover the light of your soul as it arrived in this world, shining through your soul memory and illuminating your purpose for the present life. All the information, energy and drive for the present life came with your new-born body, available for about the first 2-3 years of life. Indigenous peoples learned to pay very close attention to the nature of the infant and very young child until they could find a name that corresponded to its true nature.

Through the years we have worked together extensively to uncover and free ourselves from parental, educational, cultural and historical conditioning, that no longer serves us in this new age. We have steadily drawn closer to our soul’s light, Divinity and purpose. Now is the time to fully claim our true nature and soul purpose in order to fulfill our own potentials and contribute to the birth of a new world.

In this class we will use our practiced skills for body/mind/soul awareness, and processing and our unique individual talents to assist each other toward self-realization. Our trusted relationships, built on honesty and true caring, will help us learn who we are right now and the next step along our soul paths. Our skillful means will be: bodywork, Soul Lightening Acupressure and/or Zero Balancing; processing of material in the moment; meditation; a life review until now; small group work; and a rebirth of the Divine Child. The environmentally pure, quiet and vast Anza-Borrego desert will support our explorations.

Prerequisites:  This is an advanced course for mature students. Requirements are: Clinical Acupressure Certification, Process Acupressure Certification, or Zero Balancing faculty, and a developed processing skill. Or special recommendation by Soul Lightening faculty. 

Special Pricing: Full Tuition: $895 (begins 12/13/16); Early Bird: $795 (if registered by 12/12/16); Super Saver: $695 (if registered by 11/12/16)

 Opening to Your Soul Purpose with Lynn Johnson

In this four day class, participants will explore their soul purpose: what gets in the way of actualizing it, what life learnings and insights help to uncover it, and what is their own unique soul purpose at this point in time.

This exploration will involve experiential creative processes and soul guided process acupressure sessions each day. Materials using astrological readings from Lyn Birbeck’s Mayan calendar and Jan Spiller’s book Astrology for the Soul are prepared specifically for each participant and provide a jumping off point for introspection into oneself. This class encourages a willingness to synthesize experiential and intuitive knowing with practical life applications and behavior, and to share this synthesis with others.

Required is the ability to work confidently with points and Soul Lightening formulas, and to access soul wisdom in acupressure sessions.

 Prerequisite: PA Certified “OR”

CA1, PA1A, & PA1B & PA Certification Candidate and approval of the instructor.
