If we all ate food grown in biologically rich soil, how would this affect our lives, our communities and the ecosystems that sustain us?
As Amanda discovered, to approach this question a whole of landscape and a whole bodymind approach is required. She grapples with the context of holism to uncover synergies between Western medicine and conventional agriculture, health modality BodyTalk and Regenerative Agriculture to add her own unique take to a vision of earthly wellness.
Since March 2018 Amanda has been training in and practising BodyTalk, a health modality that she is convinced is the Rolls Royce of energy medicines. She is keen to adapt what she is learning to the world of plants and agriculture and will embark on further studies looking at Subtle Energies of the Earth. This course is on offer at Yeppoon, near Rockhampton, Queensland under the auspices of Resource Consulting Services an influential and forward looking Agricultural mob in October 2019. More on this later….
WHAT IS BODYTALK?
BodyTalk is a health modality that has been developed for over two decades by Dr John Veltheim. Australian born Dr. Veltheim studied many modalities including chiropractics, bioenergetics, Chinese medicine and acupuncture, kinesiology, osteopathy, counselling, comparative philosophy and theology and physics and was Principal of Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for 7 years.
Following a personal health crisis, Dr John developed BodyTalk in the 1990s and soon after starting his BodyTalk practice in 1998 began training other practitioners around the globe. BodyTalk is headquartered in Florida, USA and is being taught in over 37 countries while the number of Certified BodyTalk Practitioners is growing at an exponential rate.
The BodyTalk System is a comprehensive system of energy medicine that encompasses a number of recognized healing methods and key knowledge bases including Dynamic Systems Theory and Quantum Physics. BodyTalk is constantly evolving and works on the level of consciousness, the whole bodymind complex, to bring mind, body and spirit back to balance.
The BodyTalk System is not a diagnostic tool; rather it seeks to remove the barriers that are standing in the way of the body’s capacity to heal itself. Symptoms are the effects of much deeper problems and BodyTalk addresses this by working with priorities set by the body’s own wisdom and determined by neuromuscular biofeedback. This form of muscle testing elicits simple yes/no responses and guides the practitioner to the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual areas that need balancing according to the body’s own innate wisdom .
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Prior to starting a session, permission is obtained via biofeedback to ensure that the bodymind is optimally ready and willing to fully address health at all levels. Once areas of priority are determined, formulas are revealed and are then addressed through a tapping technique using a gentle touch over the brain, the heart and the enteric system (the gut). Tapping the head alerts the brain to the change that is required. Tapping the heart is to store the change and tapping over the gut allows the change to be digested/integrated.
BodyTalk is gentle and cannot cause harm when worked in accordance with the priority of the body’s inner wisdom. Clients often report a feeling of well-being after a session and dramatic improvements in stubborn conditions can be achieved. BodyTalk can be integrated into other health care modalities or used as a stand alone treatment. It is easy to learn and can be used by healthcare professionals and laypersons alike to support optimal health within self, family, friends, plants and animals.
