The ONA Foundation
Most of the energy systems out there acknowledge seven points of importance. However, ONA acknowledges 12. We see this as a logical progression as our collective awareness has allowed our perceptions to broaden. We also see that, beyond the chakras multi-dimensional structures extend that have much more influence over our health, emotions, and thoughts than do those centers! Over two decades of research into these phenomenon have provided us with the content in this website.

|Preliminary workshop to get you up to speed for taking the rest of the ONA workshops!|
Welcome to Workshop Zero of the ONA Workshop Series. In this workshop, we will learn some of the basic principles of ONA, which you need to understand before going on to Workshop One.
In this Workshop, you will learn
That you are a complex being made up of many aspects
About your energy Fields
About your Inner Aspects
About your twelve Systems
How to do conscious breathing
How colors affect your Whole Self
How sounds affect your Whole Self
About the nature of reality
To take this workshop, you may print these pages or view them on-screen. Either way, you'll want to study them at a time you can concentrate without interruption. There are questions for you to answer, and a place for you to type in your answers; but the information is neither sent nor saved anywhere. Those boxes are just there to support you in thinking about your answers, which people are more prone to do when they have to write them somewhere.
The ONA information is not to be taken lightly. It is intended to change your life. How it changes your life is entirely up to you. We can present you with the tools, but we cannot control how you use them.
A parent can introduce his or her child to a screwdriver, but once the child knows such a thing exists, there's no guarantee the child might not find some creative use of the tool—like, sticking it into a light socket, or into the dog's ear—that would have unfortunate consequences. We will do everything we can to include guidelines for the tools ONA presents, but we cannot be responsible for your ignoring those guidelines, or for taking them literally rather than as the general guides they are intended to be.
If there is one tool that ONA presents that is more important than any other, it is this: You, and no one else, are responsible for your own actions, circumstances, and being. We at the ONA Foundation are well aware that this truth flies in the face of the entire basis of our litigious society, and therefore must hereby formally disclaim any responsibility for how you use the information you obtain from these Workshops.
You, on the other hand, must agree to fully participate in this Workshop, or there is no point in your attending. By full participation, we mean:
You contribute and listen
In this on-line version, your contributions may need to be in the form of email or chat-type discussions with others who are interested in ONA or in general metaphysics. In a real workshop, you are expected to contribute to the exercises by participating in them, and to listen when the other participants share their experiences.
ONA is about balance, so it is important that you find a balance between over-contributing and under-contributing. We will help you learn to follow the energy flow in a group that indicates that your contribution is complete, and that the next participant is expected to contribute.
You should not be under the influence of any mind-altering substances
ONA is about remembrance of your whole self, not an altered self.
We suggest that you attend without having used any mind-altering substances (alcohol, marijuana, etc.) for at least 24 hours prior.
Many people believe that mind-altering substances have given them visions of spirituality that they would never otherwise have had. That's fine, but think of those substances as training wheels. It's now time to learn to have those experiences on your own, without the crutch such substances provide.
You must attend to this information without pagers, cell phones, or timepieces
Be here, now! We live in a society that encourages working on many things at once; and there is value to that in its place. There is also great value in learning to focus on the present moment, fully, without any distractions. That is one of the things ONA can teach you, but you must attend with the intention that there will be no distractions to your full participation, no matter what else you may have going on in your life. For the next two hours, this Workshop is all there is.

Your very own body, which seems so solid to you (relatively speaking), is actually no more solid than a beam of light or a radio wave.

|All about the 12 Systems that make up YOU (and everyone else).|
Even now, approximately one in twelve persons can perceive auras without any special training or effort. Many of those people are unaware that their vision isn't shared by everyone—for them, it's simply "the way things look!" If you are not one of these people, try asking your friends: "Say, do you ever see a sort of glow around people?" and see what they answer. You'll be surprised at how many people you know have this supposedly "psychic" sense!

|How to breathe consciously, and why you might want to.|
Breathing consciously is a good meditative tool simply because you do not usually do it. Our brains, through which your ego accesses the information in your Fields, normally limit us to focusing on one thing at a time. If you insist on concentrating on your breathing, you cannot become fixated upon the raise you were hoping for and didn't get, the child you think needs more discipline, or the bill payment you forgot to mail. Breathing deeply and regularly while working on a particular problem can help maintain a clear head when you need it most.

|How color affects us psychologically, physically and energetically.|
"The world is a carousel of color," as Walt Disney used to remind us. Whether you, personally, can perceive color is irrelevant to its importance in understanding our world. Even those who cannot see color (or at all) know the names of the colors, and their emotional significance. Red with anger, yellow with cowardice, green with envy, are all common phrases. Even blind people can get the blues.

|How certain sounds affect us psychologically, physically and energetically.|
All light, color and sound have vibrational wave patterns. Your twelve Fields are also composed of vibrational wave patterns. When two similar patterns are present, it causes sympathetic vibrations which activate the more complex "super-pattern" of which it is a part. That's what brings up the memories, or (in more rare but well-documented cases) headaches or various other physical sensations.

|How to work with subtle energies and get results.|
This technique assists in bringing more oxygen to your lungs and brain during headaches and times of emotional trauma. Make sure you relax and unclench you teeth. Relax your jaw. Lower your shoulders and chant and breathe. Repeat this as many times as you may need to feel the life force gently coursing through you.

|A few questions to help you measure your own progress.|
Please take a week or so to practice the techniques you learned in this workshop. Each workshop builds on the skills learned in the workshop previous. Then, take a few minutes to answer the following questions. This is not a test; it is intended to give you a baseline against which to measure your progress. The "right" answer is the honest one!
