The Aura-Soma Colour Care Training System

The Colour Care training system is a comprehensive programme of courses designed to teach the rudiments of colour and its association with consciousness. Moreover, these training courses introduce the Aura-Soma Colour Care System, its underlying philosophy and the many ways it can be of benefit, both to you and to others.

Qualifications and Training

Two internationally recognised Aura-Soma qualifications are available: Practitioner and Colour Care Consultant. Practitioners are required to complete the foundation and intermediate levels of training (levels 1 and 2) and then undertake a Personal Presentation Skills (PPS) course. Consultants are additionally required to take advanced training levels 3 and 4.

Each of the levels 1, 2 and 3 involve 36 hours of attendance spread over a minimum of six days. The PPS course requires 18 hours of attendance, and the level 4 course is a self-study module that the student completes at home and in their own time. At the start of each course, all students receive course materials and workbooks.

Some students are satisfied with just taking the foundation level, and are happy with the personal enrichment they obtain from the course and from using the techniques on family and friends. Others take a vocational approach: some to Practitioner level and some to Consultant level.

After completing the courses up to and including the PPS, students will be able to join the worldwide register of Aura-Soma Practitioners and Aura-Soma Colour Care Consultants as a Practitioner and begin to work with the public. After completing levels 3 and 4, students join the register as Colour Care Consultants. A condition of being on this register requires that students undertake annual renewal training in order to keep up to date with the Colour Care System.

Foundation Course – Level 1

Course Pre-requisites:

At the start of the course, students will be required to read and sign the 'Student Agreement'. By signing this agreement, the student agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of ASIACT (Art and Science International Academy of Colour Technologies).

Course Aims

The primary aims of the foundation course are to introduce the student to the philosophy of the Aura-Soma Colour Care System, to provide information about the tools offered within the system and to practise interpreting equilibrium selections. In this respect, students receive an introduction to the consultation process where they will spend a considerable amount of time learning about the equilibrium system, learning how to interpret an equilibrium selection and learning how to view the selection as a whole.

Course Content

The course includes the following:

  • Principles of Aura-Soma as a non-intrusive self-selection system;
  • Theory of primary, secondary, tertiary and complementary colours;
  • Colour spectrums - visible and invisible;
  • Sympathetic resonance as a means of restoring balance;
  • Language of colour and colour messages at various levels;
  • Consultation procedures and interpretation of colour selections;
  • Significance of equilibrium bottle positions within a selection;
  • Understanding relationships among the selected bottles;
  • Guidance on making recommendations based on the selected bottles;
  • Product introduction, with guidelines on use and appropriateness;
  • Demonstrations and practical work with a hand-massage technique;
  • Pomanders and Quintessences used with the aura and subtle energies.


After each course, students receive a certificate of attendance from ASIACT – the body that accredits Aura-Soma training courses. Only ASIACT registered teachers can provide Colour Care training.
