Our Courses

Getting well now paintingWhy improve the flows of your human energy field? Because your human energy field (HEF) is you: it enervates your body, and moves past the edges of your fingertips, toes and skin. It implements the decisions that you have made and are making via electrical, electro-magnetic, light and sound fields. The fuel for your HEF comes from food, our planet, your soul-connection, your spiritual connection, living air, your relationships, and more.

As you improve the flows of your HEF, you can facilitate the metabolism the life force energies that come from all the energy-based fuel sources of your body and HEF.

How does knitting and weaving fit in with our teachings about the HEF? Well, it turns out that our owner, Ingrid Splettstoesser, found that she needed 100% natural clothing to improve te flows of her HEF and eliminate the pain from her fibromyalgia syndrome. In synthetic environments with fluorescent lights, she wears 100% wool or hand-made fabrics of wool with stinging nettle to provide a space for her HEF to flow, thus improving her stamina and keeping pain at bay. Stinging nettle-wool fabric blends cannot be purchased, so Ingrid makes them. She teaches fabric self-assessment, so you can explore the impact of various fabrics on you. Then, if you should also find that the fabrics you need are not available, you can make them too. You can also use your knitting and weaving skills (together with sewing) to create unique garments.

Most people learn by trial-and-error, by watching, listening, copying and exploring. Take your senses and your awareness into new directions by learning and practicing with us. Test the impact of various fabrics upon you and develop the calming skills of knitting and weaving. Let us work together to balance, harmonize and flow your HEF and fill it with more of yourself.

Our courses are held in our studio, which has ceramic tile and hardwood flooring. We clean with natural substances (vinegar and baking soda), and the common area outside our space is also cleaned that way. Daytime classes are run with natural light; evening classes with full spectrum lighting. Kindly bring indoor, non-slip shoes.

Reiki Classes (Usui/Tibetan)

Reiki is a structured bio-energy form that follows healing intentionality. Some call it love. Some call it a gift from our spiritual source.

Reiki means universal (Rei) life force (Ki). Usui Reiki was started in 1922 when Mikao Usui was given the healing Reiki energy at a mystic retreat while suffering from an apparently incurable illness and was spontaneously cured. The Tibetan frequency of Reiki has been traced back to the 1800s and was taught to Mikao Usui, by Tschen Li. Each style of Reiki is associated with different symbols. Some teachers provide only the Usui symbols, while others provide both the Usui and Tibetan symbols. In our classes (Level 2 and Teacher/Master Level), we will be using both the Usui and Tibetan symbols. Participants receive both the Usui and Tibetan attunements in all levels of classes.

Parsing the HEF

Parsing the HEF is based on our innate ability to tune into the different levels of our HEF. Once practiced and developed, you can choose to self-assess your HEF and work on wellness or lifestyle issues. Dysfunctional HEF patterns can contribute to pain, so identifying them and moving towards balance and harmony can be tools for pain management. The course has the following units:

1: Spark the living breath

2: Sing your core star, retrieve Akashic records data

3: Examine the spiritual and planetary flows of our main vertical power current then stabilize its movement

4: Assess your axiatonal system, link it to your power current system, and link them to the bone marrow and central nervous system

5: Align your three trunk power centres (dantians), moving their nourishing process and learn about their clearing processes.

6: Test the polarity of your trunk chakras and self-assess the flow levels of these chakras.

  1. Self-assess the coverage of your bone joint chakra field and the levels of flow among the chakras.

Focused Knitting Groups

Join one of our knitting groups if you are looking for structured knitting practice. During the groups we also discuss and use techniques to calm and nourish our human energy fields and our creativity.

The knitting groups have three levels of projects:

  1. Variations of knit and purl with use of colour. Goals include establishing knitting discipline and personal knitting style.
  2. Twisting and turning skills. Cover advanced stitches such as cables and
  3. Creative investigation of patterns.
