Awakening the Nine Levels of Sensing


In 2019 –

Thursday, July 25 to Thursday, August 1

Nine Levels was last held November 2015

A Guided Experiential Adventure of Self-Discovery

Awakening the Nine Levels of Sensing is a 6-day intensive immersion that takes the participant on a journey into how to sense energy by using subtle anatomy. This course leaves the student with a toolbox and a way to apply the tools in their daily life.

“In the late sixties, when people first started asking me to teach them how to do what I do, I begin to develop a concept for a workshop that would assist the awakening of an individual’s own talent and awareness in a loving, safe and fun way. It’s taken me many years to really figure out how to do this. You see, I had to figure out how to break down into simple and clean steps something I was born  with and simply knew how to do naturally, like laughing or yawning or drinking water. Awakening the Nine Levels of Sensing is my favorite thing…an initiation into the unseen mysteries.” – Desda Zuckerman

One of the biggest things Desda discovered in her journey of mystical dissection is that there are actual nine distinctly different ways to sense energy. Physical Sensing incorporating the 5 senses is only one of the nine ways to process and perceive energy. Coupled with the new techniques Desda developed to deal with the modern affects of Electro-magnetic fields, energetic hygiene and discernment there is plenty to fill up a marvelous six days.

Learn the Following

  • Tune into your greater sensitivities. We’ve all got them; we just don’t have mastery over them. Learn to better read, distinguish, and use your own awareness.
  • EMFs are everywhere and impact everybody. Cope with the effects of 21st Century technology energetically and intentionally, without devices, gizmos and gadgets.
  • We are fooling ourselves if we think we are limited to only five physical senses. Step out of that box and learn just how big you are and how much you can know by developing by developing deeper sensing skills.
  • Energetic hygiene and protection are critical. Learn to recognize and deflect unwanted energies. Become aware of your energy boundaries, how to access and strengthen them. Stop giving your vital life force energy away to make things happen.

Awakening the Nine Levels of Sensing is not given every year.

About Desda

Desda Zuckerman was born a natural intuitive, and she has spent the better part of her life trying to understand and learn to use her extraordinary gifts. What she now believes is that awakened and trained sensing skills are the most valuable tools an energetically conscious person can have. Ultimately they can lead to the experience of living as a fully extended human being. By coming to know where we end, and where we begin, our understanding of what it means to be a person grows. We become more effective in our daily lives and chosen professions being able to clearly define what we are feeling. The ability to grab hold of and manifest our purpose in life and the deeper wisdom that exists for each of us, within our own make-up, is much more readily available when we are conscious of these skills. Desda has developed this intensive to share the full body experience of sensing in nine amazingly different ways, from different parts of our huge energy structure.
