with Schirin in Amsterdam
22 March – 1 December 2019
Testimony from 2018 :
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 - 18
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 -18
Many people experience tiredness from constant muscle tension in their bodies. Initially muscle tension functioned as a protection to hold back what was not safe to feel or express. This holding becomes a habit that we might not even be aware of and we 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 strengthen your capacity to sense, feel and be present with yourself and another person in a creative and explorative way. Not only useful in the bodywork, but in life itself! A process of listening, accepting, connecting and receiving yourself and the client through touch.
