is a practitioner and instructor of Esalen® Massage. His background includes training in Gestalt Practice, neurolinguistic programming, intuitive work, and meditation.
Esalen Massage is a moving meditation, a practice in presence and mindfulness, and a loving healing art. When practiced with focused attention, massage comes from a deep, quiet place that resides inside each of us. The practice of meditation can help access the parasympathetic nervous system, where healing originates. As we give a massage, this healing state of mind can permeate the field that practitioner and receiver create together.
This workshop is designed for loving partners who wish to bring the nurturing practice of massage into their daily lives and spend a special weekend together cradled in the beauty and intensity of the Big Sur coast. It is also for couples who want to deepen already existing skills and for those who want to create more time in their lives for healing and intimacy.
During an Esalen Massage, we experience a remarkable web of interdependence: a listening touch, a deepening breath, a sense of connection with another. When we receive a massage we remember an easier time and "come home."
