Touch & Awareness

 

Bodywork training
with Schirin in Amsterdam

For 2020

6th March - 22nd November

Testimony :

I could never have imagined that touch could open up such a profound process in myself and now I have even learned to guide others in their process through giving touch, which is a magnificent experience."

Themer Abourayan, student - 2018

TESTIMONY: " I’m really loving this work and it feels like I’ve found ‘my thing’ in terms of body work. This really talks to me and I love how it opens through being so slow, stationary melting through, not technique heavy but predominantly intuition and empathy. I also love the pragmatic style of just suggesting what things could mean for the client and then letting the connections be made in themselves as a way of staying out of therapy and mood making. " Chris, student - 2018


Many people experience tiredness as a result of constant muscle tension in their body. Muscle tension initially functioned as a protection mechanism to hold back anything that was unsafe to feel or express at the time. This holding of tension can become an unconscious habit that we may not even have an awareness of. We may believe this is just how we are. It can lead to stiffness, tension, pain or numbness in body and mind.

This is a practical training to develop your capacity to sense, feel and be present with yourself and another in a creative and explorative way. Not only useful in the field of bodywork, but in life itself! A process of listening, accepting, connecting and receiving yourself and the client through touch.
