Classical Chinese Medicine Scholar's Hour

The Cosmic Octave
Charles Lev, LAc
Explore sound healing and the Music of the Spheres. Bridging Eastern and Western mystical traditions, we will witness a marriage of classical Chinese medical theory and the perennial Pythagorean dream of healing illness with a musical medicine derived from the Music of the Spheres. The acutonics community has expanded the work of Hans Cousto to create a coherent blending of planetary tuning forks and Chinese medicine that is rich in mythical archetypes and harmonic magic. Come enjoy a morning of listening, learning, and resonating with the Cosmos.
