In April of 1991, BodyTalk founder John Veltheim awoke from a meditation knowing his advanced work would be called PaRama before he even knew what the word meant. The word comes from Sanskrit and means “highest” or “beyond.” The PaRama course takes what you have learned in the core BodyTalk modules and goes far beyond them in terms of both concepts and techniques.
The PaRama work has proven to have a profound impact on countless practitioners, clients and students who have experienced a shift in their consciousness and their lives. PaRama BodyTalk sessions work deeply in such a way that long-hidden, internal obscurities and imbalances are able to find their way to the surface to be healed. While such shifts occasionally cause temporary, superficial conflict, the sense all along the way is that it is worth all of that and more.
This mini course gives you a peek into the structure and content of what you will find in the first Segment of PaRama BodyTalk. This first Segment starts out by introducing you to the PaRama Exploring Procedures Chart and the first set of PaRama methodologies, including new options in the Item box, the concept and application of Strategies, and the concept and application of Networks. There will be 8 Segments in total, with each Segment containing multiple in-depth lessons on subjects that will transform your sessions, your practice and your life. What you will see in this short free course are just snippets from the complete course.
The online course work of PaRama is like a textbook that goes hand-in-hand with the video lessons presented by BodyTalk Founder Dr. John Veltheim and BodyTalk Instructor Tim Hall, Masters of Science in Kinesiology. It is also full of quotes and images that we hope will inspire you and further broaden your understanding of the concepts.
So enjoy and get a feel for what the PaRama course has in store for you.
John Veltheim is the founder of The BodyTalk System. He is cofounder of both the International BodyTalk Association and the International BodyTalk Foundation, which helps fund research and offers BodyTalk Access to people in places where healthcare is not readily available.
Dr. Veltheim has written numerous magazine and journal articles on BodyTalk and his other fields of knowledge. Dr. Veltheim’s work has also been published in the Journal of Alternative Medicine Research. The journal’s publishers were so impressed with his development of The BodyTalk System, they dedicated an entire volume solely to articles about BodyTalk.

While we all start out in BodyTalk by learning how to utilize our intuition in a very linear and structured way, the PaRama course is intended to totally re-wire all three brains in such a way that you learn to apply BodyTalk principles and techniques in a far more flexible and expansive fashion. The course will strengthen your trust in your intuition, thereby allowing it to have more freedom as it navigates an endless array of possibilities for healing. The course will not only deepen your understanding of what Dynamics Systems Theory really means, it will also provide a more comprehensive foundation to Dr. Veltheim’s more recent advanced courses, namely Finding Health, Eastern Medicine, Physical Energetics, Soul’s Journey, BodyTalk Direct, and Circadian Rhythms. However, you do not need to have taken these courses for a quantum shift in your understanding of BodyTalk principles to occur.
The PaRama BodyTalk course content covers an extremely wide array of concepts and techniques. Students cannot expect to grasp or absorb it all in a few months’ time. The PaRama Course is a Master’s level program that will take even the most adept and dedicated student a minimum of a year to master.
While the original version of the course was presented as a series of video lectures on DVD with accompanying slides and posters presented in two units (Unit 1 and Unit 2), the updated version of the course is presented in a streamlined format that includes LiveStream video lectures, online lessons, and other useful supplemental materials. In addition, minor updates have been made to the original course and much of the material has been elaborated on and in some cases clarified. The video lectures now include both John and guest Instructor and lecturer, Tim Hall, who was one of the most passionate proponents of the PaRama course when it first came out many years ago, and who continues to be one of Dr. Veltheim’s primary researchers in new course development.

For all students who sign up for these LiveStream Segments, a free Online Interactive Practical will take place three weeks after each lecture. These follow-up events will be an opportunity for you to practice and study the material for several weeks and then ask Dr. Veltheim all of your questions, as well as watch live demonstrations. They will be an invaluable part of your learning and studying process and will make you more prepared for the following lecture and eventually for the in-person PaRama BodyTalk Practical course.
