Participant in an Up & Down Movement Workshop exploring a Feldenkraisian neurosensory lesson.
Touch is an important part of life, in fact we need it to survive!
Yet if it is not done well to us and for us when we are developing as infants, toddlers, children, and even as teens, we won’t know what good, nurturing, healthy, loving, safe, and unconditional touch truly is.
We won’t know how to touch others and it’ll be very tough to connect to ourselves (to touch ourselves or even relate to ourselves) in a way that is self-nurturing (loving). This is literal, and metaphorical.
If you’ve been paying attention to the photos that relate to my in-person workshop, Up & Down, you’ll notice a lot of them are of our hands and their movements, plus connecting with others via this touch, and this is because we want to teach people how to re-awaken their touch.
Playing an interactive game that brings in ALL the senses
When we learn to touch with intelligence and intention that is fuelled by curiosity and healing (rather than expectations or roughness), we start to heal the deeper parts of ourselves that have been waiting for this level of nurturing communication.
If you’d like to experience what it’s like to re-awaken this transformational sense of touch and get the practical tools to better nurture yourself and others, consider joining me and my co-teacher and dear friend Elia Mrak for and Up & Down workshop.
