During an Esalen Massage, we experience a remarkable web of interdependence: a listening touch, a deepening breath, our nervous system soothed in connection with another. When we receive a massage, we remember an easier time and "come home."
Esalen Massage seeks the interface between form and energy, physical structure and the soul, you and I. The long, integrative strokes build a sense of presence, while deeper focused work evokes release of tension patterns. Both teachers have shared this grounding, loving practice with many different people, and know the joy and healing that this form of calming and revitalizing touch can bring to many diverse cultures and personalities.
During this weekend retreat, through brief demonstrations, one-on-one guidance and plenty of practice time, you will have the opportunity to awaken your own talent and resources to easily and safely give and receive the basic elements of an Esalen Massage. To support you in your massage learning experience, centering, grounding, and self-care exercises are also included in the workshop presentation.
This course offers foundation skills to the newcomer and a fresh approach for the practitioner. There is also plenty of time to breath in the beauty of the Big Sur Coast.
