Intentioned Touch Workshops
A Practical Guide to Intentioned Touch and Basic Massage
In this interactive workshop, you will learn the value of Intentioned Touch in relationships, be introduced to the Vocabulary of Touch, and walk away with practical and easy massage techniques that can be done right at home.
Many times words get in the way of communicating feelings and information between partners. Intentioned Touch transcends words and reaches the deepest point of communication – freeing a mutual, compassionate and sacred space for true connection. (Learning basic massage techniques is the perfect way of putting Intentioned Touch to use. )
Through hands-on exercises and practicing massage techniques under supervision of a professional massage therapist, partners will learn about:
4 different types of touch including
Interfacing – establish clear boundaries
Blending – authentic intimacy (trust and unity)
Streaming – the gift of giving
Channeling – touching the real you (staying open)
Massage techniques for the neck, shoulders and back
Note: Participants will remain fully clothed throughout the workshop.
There is a basic human need for proper and healthy touch. Being touched is literally food; babies deprived of touch often do not survive. Relationships without healthy and proper touch also do not survive. Unfortunately, in our fast paced, high-tech world, most people do not take the time to find a quiet space to explore this powerful way of sharing and expressing themselves to loved ones. In addition, touch seems to have become both taboo as a topic of discussion or overused that people become desensitized, leading to a serious breakdown of the relationship.
Participants will receive a workbook as well as emails with videos for several weeks after the after the workshop that review the material covered in the workshop
