Introduction to Atlas Balancing Soundcodes
September 30, 7-8:30 p.m.
The Atlas is the Gatekeeper! The misalignment of the atlas bone in 99% of humans is a major contributor to many common issues of the spine, neck, shoulders, hips and brain. Atlas Balancing occurs through the use of ancient Soundcodes sung by the practitioner. There is no physical manipulation involved. Amari will share the surprising results of this recently recovered body of work and a sampling of the sacred tones that inspire the body to self repair.

Preregistration is requested.
$10 in advance, $15 at the door. Register at www.AtlasBalancing.US/registration.html.
Participants may want to recline during the transmission of sacred tones; if so, you may want to bring a mat or blanket.
