The first course will be roughly following a book, entitled Pathological Lesions, I completed in the spring of 2004. This is a compilation of how to recognize, the unique geometric shape generated by all of our bodies over a region with a particular type of wound or lesion. It is a kind of a language that is present for all who have learned to be perceptive in a tactile way. These geometric shapes can be present: in an overall body region; in a joint; within a sub-structure of a joint such as a ligament; the capsule of a joint. Also within a structure like the brain; a substructure of the brain such as the brain stem, cortex, mid-brain, amenoges, etc, or an organ or gland they can also manifest.
During this three-part course, each of which can be taken separately, these lesions, what I understand of their nature thus far, how to recognize them and treat them will be unfolded, with time for the participants to practice with eachother.
This is a course for people and practitioners alike. Lack of anatomical skills will be compensated for by detailed drawings within the text of the workbook and anatomical models available. Further study or advanced study of anatomy may then be self-directed but its lack not an obstacle to the training.
What all these lesions have in common, no matter where they have occurred, is that they cause the tissues they are in or near to spasm, to become hypomobile, to not move well or freely. Sometimes this can reach a crescendo where it actually hurts at the site. Sometimes it just adds in to other pathology eventually and creates a condition that gets our attention through pain or dysfunction of impact large enough to get our attention later. In any case it is not ideal & is a component of various disease states.
In addition, one or two Lesion Finders will also be given as part of the class as an aid to treatment. These are helpful to gently accelerate the surfacing of the lesion's geometric shape which is necessary to treat it. This non-linear presentation of lesions is also embedded in time; that is to say that at an earlier moment one can, in a tactile way, search for presenting lesions and not find them; while two hours or days later the pathological motility is very obvious and present at the surface of the body, and available for treatment. Lesion Finders facilitate the safe availability of injury and other lesions to treatment, with less of the treatment reactions that occur when they are not used. To reiterate this geometric shape will be available one on the surface of the body when it is ready for treatment which means that all the prerequisites for it's manifestation have been met and treated.
Some of the lesions depicted in the book fall into the realm of Etheric Dysfunction ***& are included in this course because of the similarity to physical lesions. One or two are actually soul wounds which reflect into the physical and are also included for a similar reason. A number of Pathological Physical lesions have been left out of this book because the treatment is for the advanced practitioner. These courses will be available as long as there is interest.
