Enjoy the serene beauty of Big Sur as you and your partner learn to give each other an effective massage. A tender touch can do wonders for any relationship by easing stress and deepening non-verbal communication skills. Emphasis will be on "listening" with both heart and hands, asking for what you need, and taking the time to truly nurture yourself and your partner. Sessions include basic quieting exercises, movement, brief demonstrations, hands-on guidance, and plenty of time for practice.
The Esalen massage experience opens a remarkable web of interconnection: a listening touch, the sound of the ocean, and our nervous system soothed with calm, gentle contact. When we receive a massage we remember an easier time and "come home."
