a member of the Esalen massage staff since 1980, teaches internationally, focusing on bodywork's energetic, emotional, and spiritual aspect. She is a Reiki teacher, a Circle of Life facilitator/coach, and a licensed graduate of The Center for Spiritual Healing.
In this massage-intensive workshop, we will focus on the abdominal and pelvic regions of the body, addressing both energetic and structural dynamics. Often the abdomen is treated superficially, when in fact it is our center, our core, and the place of digestion and assimilation of all life experiences. The pelvic region is the "cradle," or seat of power, the bridge between the upper body and the legs. The psoas muscles, considered the fight/flight muscles of the human species, span this bridge.
Char Pias and Silvia Guersenzvaig invite you to step into the New Year by participating in a five-day journey to renew your body, mind, and spirit.
"My passion is to help co-create a deeper and more profoundly satisfying experience of Life," writes Char Pias. PiaSoma is a somatically based approach to personal development and transformation. The foundational premise is to access the innate wisdom of the body to release stress, chronic tension, and trauma, and thus bring the body-mind back into balance or homeostasis. From this state of being, we gain a renewed sense of self, an expanded perspective, and the ability to clearly recognize life-affirming choices.
