What is Attunement?

Attunement is an alternative medicine practice that assists people to tune into the source of wisdom, love, and the power of life within them. Practitioners find themselves filled with new levels of subtle energy. Their own Attunement brings energy healing to others, renewing the body, bringing peace to the heart, and tranquility to the mind of their client.

Attunement is also a mindfulness practice. It is being fully aware, in the present moment, of what is happening mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. It is allowing a clear flow of subtle energies through what you think, say, feel, and do.

The Attunement School at Sunrise Ranch

Since 1952, the Attunement School at Sunrise Ranch has taught people the Attunement process. We teach conscious practices that unleash subtle energies into the human energy system, allowing people to realize their vision of bringing healing to the world. Lloyd Arthur Meeker, who founded the Attunement practice in 1929, and founded Sunrise Ranch in 1945, taught here and launched the work we continue today.

Seven Endocrine Glands—Gateways for Energy Healing

We are offering a powerful online experience of Attunement. It is free for members of our online community, Becoming a Sun Programs. And membership in our online community is free! Just click here to register.

Attunement Practitioner Training teaches conscious practices and energy medicine techniques that unlock the powers of the seven major endocrine glands. Participants learn to open gateways for vitality, peace, mental insight, and compassionate love associated with each gland.

Pancreas ~ The Spirit of Blessing makes love real in the energy a person brings to the world.

Adrenals ~ The Spirit of the Single Eye activates uncommon insight, understanding, and a clear focus for physical action.

Gonads (Ovaries and Testes) ~ The Spirit of the New Earth stimulates abundant life current in the physical body.

Thymus ~ The Spirit of Purification cleanses the human energy field of toxicity and frees up the flow of the Attunement current.

Thyroid ~ The Spirit of Life brings the opportunity for the balanced, joyful expression of vitality through all phases of the human experience.

Pituitary ~ The Spirit of the Womb holds and embraces all the processes of creation for the individual and their world.

Pineal ~ The Spirit of Love is the quintessential quality of the human energy system. It flows with a person’s connection to the source of their being when the pineal is open.

Teaching Attunement

I’ve taught the principles and practice of Attunement for the past 20 years to people worldwide—to people at the Novalis Centre in South Africa, the Omega Institute in New York; and in British Columbia, Norway, Australia, and many other places around the globe.

My travels have proven to me that Attunement is not unique to a specific type of person or people of a particular background. Attunement is the most pivotal issue for everyone and for all of us as humankind. It is our ability to tune in to what makes us go as human beings—to the source of life within us. It is our only hope to heal the world. Without our Attunement, nothing else works. With it, all else becomes possible.

What an honor it has been to witness the joy on the face of a person I’ve never met before when they attune more deeply to the source of their own love and wisdom! Their face lights up. Joy overflows. And a new power enters the body.

The Faculty

I first came to Sunrise Ranch in 1975 to take a 3-month Attunement course with Martin Cecil. It changed my life. I’ve been practicing Attunement ever since.

I have dedicated my life to assisting people to experience higher levels of Attunement and teaching people to become Attunement practitioners. I am a lifelong student of Lloyd Arthur Meeker’s Attunement teachings. I’ve trained intensively with one of the most gifted emotional process facilitators and teachers, Cliff Barry, founder of Shadow Work Seminars, Inc. I studied Attunement with Dr. Bill Bahan, founder of the Whole Health Institute, an organization promoting a holistic approach to complementary medicine practices. Bill was also a gifted Attunement teacher at Sunrise Ranch. I received a Master’s Degree in Education from the University of California at Riverside.

I have a crazy appreciation for people who taught and mentored me. But to tell you the truth, my greatest teacher of all has been what I have experienced on my life path. It has brought me to know that the experience of Attunement is what all people are looking for.

I’ll be joined on the faculty of this course by five gifted Attunement teachers.

We are excited to come together as a group of people who are passionate about Attunement.

Jane Anetrini is a chiropractor and former president of the Whole Health Institute. Jane has been practicing Attunement since 1980, and she has been teaching at the Attunement School at Sunrise Ranch since 2014.

Oren Yakovee has practiced energy medicine since he was a boy. He is a lifelong practitioner of Sukyo Mahikari, a spiritual path that teaches the transmission of light energy to purify the spiritual aspect of people and all things. He joined the faculty of the Attunement School at Sunrise Ranch in 2021.

Marilyn Manderson practices Attunement in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada. She has been practicing Attunement since 1976, and teaching it since 2002.

Howard Goodman practices Attunement in Cape Town, South Africa. He began his practice of Attunement in 1975.

Sece Foster is a recent graduate of the Attunement School at Sunrise Ranch. This is her first year joining our faculty. She has had many years of training in metaphysics, and spiritual healing. She is a Spiritual coach, facilitator and teacher of affirmative prayer.

Become a Certified Attunement Practitioner

Participants who successfully complete this training receive a certification from the Attunement Guild as a Certified Attunement Practitioner, and they are granted a one-year membership in the Attunement Guild.

I know this will be a beautiful journey for all of us who participate in this course. I know we’ll emerge with that energetic glow that always comes with a deep Attunement experience. And it is exciting to envision you, as a participant who has successfully completed the course, ready to bring Attunement to the world as a certified Attunement Practitioner.


We believe that the experience of Attunement is priceless. Lloyd Arthur Meeker used to say that if he were to offer Attunements for money, people would have to pay him many thousands of dollars for a single Attunement. And that was in the 1950s.

If the experience of Attunement is priceless, then the knowledge that unlocks the door to an experience of Attunement is invaluable too. That has left us to ponder deeply what we should ask financially from people who take this course. The reality is that we can’t offer the training without financial support to do it.

So here is what we have come to. We are offering this Attunement Practitioner training for $950. That includes the certification as a Practitioner from the Attunement Guild. We believe that $950 doesn’t begin to equate to the value of the training. But all things considered, it seems a reasonable amount. It does not include room and board from Sunrise Ranch for the in-person portion of the course.

On behalf of my fellow faculty members, I invite you on this journey.
