All nine Level I Courses are taught each year in California (one week in November, one week in January, and one week in March). We also teach weekend courses around the world. (Please see schedule.)

We also offer a Level I Two Week Summer Intensive once a year in Switzerland, where all 9 classes are offered. (this is three weeks of work taught in two weeks - for those with previous energy experience or busy schedules.)

Here is a description of our 9 Level I courses:

Kototama, the Science of Pure Sound ~ Music Therapy to Harmonize the Body, Mind and Spirit (2 Days).

Tao of Sound

Traced back to Celtic and Druidic tradition, this esoteric teaching has been transmitted secretly and orally within the Japanese culture for the last 2000 years. Fabien Maman, initiated by his Japanese Master of Aikido and acupuncture, Sensei Nakazano, back in the early 70s, will transmit his own precise sound correspondences to harmonize the organs, chakras, subtle energy fields with the seasons, directions and stars. Drawing from more than 30 years as a musiciaown precise n/composer, acupuncturist and researcher, Fabien Maman aligns with the ancient traditions of classical music, mathematics, Chinese medicine, astrology and esoteric philosophy, as spelled out in his new book, The Tao of Sound.

See Fabien Maman's amazing color slides showing the impacts of acoustic sound on human cells. Conducted in 1981, this sound/cellular research helped to shape the landscape of sound healing as we know it today. Explore how acoustic instruments and elemental sounds can clear negative patterns in the energy field. Experience a "Tama-Do Harmonization," conducted by Fabien Maman and Faery/Shaman Terres Unsoeld for the entire class.

This course is taught only once a year in the United States. This is a rare opportunity to learn from the Master himself.

TEP (Tama-Do Extra Points) ~ a Touch Technique to balance the emotions, chakras and aura (2 days).


This wonderful touch technique balances the Chakras and subtle energy fields (Auras) of the body, using Chi in the etheric (physical) body, sound in the astral (emotional) body, and color in the mental body. Each session creates a whirlpool of energy, allowing deep transformation.

Students will learn basic scanning to assess the energetic qualitiies of the chakras and subtle energy fields (Auras); point location and the energetic meanings of 21 key energy points of the body; sound and colour correspondences for the chakras; as well as Fabien’s personal overview about how raising human frequencies with Chi and our connection with the universe. TEP is an excellent complement to polarity, cranial sacral and other touch techniques. It helps to balance emotional distress and ground the people in their bodies.

Tuning Forks on Acupuncture Command Points (Shu Points) and Assessment (3 days).

Tuning Forks

Fabien Maman is the one who first brought steel tuning forks to the United States, to be used on acupuncture meridians to heal the body, mind and spirit. His work inspired others to follow - creating a sound healing revolution that is world-wide. Dozens of sound healing schools have been inspired by his sound healing research and techniques. This is an opportunity to go to the source and learn from the Master.

In this comprehensive sound healing course, students will learn the basic principals of the Chinese 5 Elements and acupuncture. They will learn point location and Fabien Maman's unique sound correspondences for the 12 main organs and acupuncture meridians of the body.

Through the application of tuning forks to specific acupuncture points, the physical, etheric, emotional, mental and spiritual levels may be accessed. Basic principals of tuning fork use on acupuncture points will be taught, as well as complete treatment protocol from assessing and evaluating an individual’s meridian, elemental and energetic imbalances to selecting the appropriate musical interval and color to re-establish balance.

Tuning Forks on Acupuncture Command Points is an excellent technique to empower the organs, bringing health and vitality to the physical body. This technique is good for clients who are weak, sick or challenged with physical issues.

Terres Unsoeld, Tama-Do Senior Instructor, will add her own technique, called "Sound Shiatsu", which chases energy along the zones of the acupuncture meridians, with Fabien's classical tuning forks. This technique offers easy relief to aches and pains in the knees, shoulders and ankles, etc.

Shu Points is ideal for Shiatsu, Massage and Acupuncture practitioners wishing to add ‘cutting edge’ tuning fork techniques to their healing repertoire.

Tuning Forks on the Musical Spine® ~ 2 days.

The spine is the central axis of the physical body. Fabien Maman has created this powerful yet simple technique using tuning forks, the musical modes of the seasons and color lights along the bladder meridian of the spine to harmonize the nervous system, chakras and subtle energy fields (aura). On a physical level, the Musical Spine® helps to relieve back pain and physical trauma. It also helps to relieve emotional pain caught up in cellular memories. On a more fine level, Fabien Maman’s Musical Spine® helps you to link with your central axis… and your direction in life.

Recommended for all healing practitioners, Musical Spine® is one of Tama-Do Academy’s most popular techniques to harmonize body, mind and spirit. It is simple to practice and profound in its healing effects.

Tuning Forks on the Subtle Body Command Points (8 Qi Mo) ~ Harmonizing the physical body, chakras and aura (3 days) (3 days).

Fabien Maman’s basic healing paradigm is that sickness happens first in the energy field, and that we must clear this negative energy first before deep healing and regeneration can occur on the physical level. Based on this principal, he took the Chinese 8 Extraordinary Acupuncture Meridians (8 Qi Mo) which run the main functions of the body, and developed a powerful tuning fork technique which helps to elevate the energy of these 8 points on the body to the more subtle levels of consciousness in the chakras and the subtle energy fields (Aura). By healing the energy field first, deep healing can occur within the cells and DNA of the physical body.

Students will learn how to empower the functions of these 8 master points, as well as the chakras and aura, using Fabien Maman's Classical Tuning Forks and Color Lights. These powerful techniques are used to elevate energy from the physical to a more subtle level of consciousness.

This advanced tuning fork technique is a powerful tool for practitioners to balance their clients on all levels, from the physical to the spiritual. Students must first take Shu Points or Musical Spine before taking this course.
