4/5 — ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HAND AND BODY POWER POSTURES. Sue/Aaron Singleton introduce to you what they believe is one of the biggest secrets yet to be discovered in the art of ancient Egypt. Beginning with their first trip to Egypt in 1998, the Singletons began exploring placement of the hands/head/body in statues/temple/tomb art. Their next several trips, they realized they’d finally found the true origins of their own Energy Of Life®/EOL Integrative Healing Process. You will learn hand/body postures to clear/balance chakras, release fears, open the heart, enhance intuition, etc. They recreate the energy of the King’s and Queen’s Chambers by combining a number of their own EOL transformative tools.
