“Our feelings and our bodies are like water flowing into water. We learn to swim within the energies of the body senses.” -Tarthang Tulku
Medicine body workshop is based on somatic movement & oriental medicine to experience our body and mind in the present moment with all our senses.
This is an opportunity to dive into a process of pure feeling, sensing and perceiving, we reconnect to our inner landscape where we can bridge to a deeper sense of creation and healing within. This is our natural medicine.
According to Oriental medicine, human body is a mirror of nature and is made of energy. Yin& Yang which is known as a natural flow of energy, two opposite qualities of energies transforming one to the other to maintain a balance.
This principle is like our autonomic nervous system regulating between sympathetic and parasympathetic pathways.
By working with the flow of energy, I will guide you to a sensory practice in relation to double sensations (double awareness)
Feeling & being felt
Seeing & being Seen
Moving & being moved
Experiencing & being experienced
