Foundations of Touch
This workshop highlights the value and importance of touch in our every day lives through discussion and group exercises. Touch is an integral aspect of healing and connection that is lacking in our everyday lives. Loving, platonic, consensual touch has been hyper-sexualized and commodified in a way that negatively affects our abilities to access intimacy, vulnerability, and authentic connection to one another. Self-touch and shared-touch are important parts of care and connection. Touch can be a radical way to access compassion and break down social boundaries that otherwise limit connection. Foundations of Touch discusses and explores applied touch as a method of deeper connection and holistic healing. In this workshop, with a safe space to encourage and explore intentional, consensual touch, participants are asked to explore their relationship to touch. Tune into your body, learn basic shared consent skills, and discover deeper authentic connection through touch with others in this intimate workshop.
There are several layers to each person's energy field, and each one has it's own particular importance in our balance and alignment. Our Auras help us tune into the universe and energy of others. These "nets" can catch things that require special time and attention to release. The Seven Chakras, or energy vortexes, correlate directly to the seven hormone creators and distributors within our bodies' Endocrine system. When these systems are blocked or out of balance, our body, mind, and spirit, can struggle to thrive. Keeping a clear aura, aligned chakras, and balanced hormones in our body are key to well-being. In this workshop, tune into your intuition and energy systems through meditation and group exercises. Participants will learn about Auras, the basic Seven Chakra centers and how they are all connected and interact. Explore and play with your natural ability to assess and tune into your own and others' energy.
Reiki I Attunement
Level 1 is an initiation into Reiki and open to anyone. The focus for Level 1 is opening the energy channels on a physical level, allowing the practitioner to connect to the universal life force energy, which flows from the cosmos through the crown of the head and down through the heart and hands. Come learn the history of Reiki, basic knowledge of the chakras, basic hand placements, obtain the first attunement, and practice self Reiki. The Reiki attunement opens and expands the main energy channels of the student's body, allowing universal energy, also known as Qi/Chi/Ki, to flow more freely and deeply. Often this clears blockages within the student and can create significant energy changes and self-growth within the individual. Level I Reiki encourages self-practice and working through one's own blockages.
