Spiritual Massage is a hands-on healing practice that works directly on the energy body, balancing the chakras, cleansing old thought forms, and gently facilitating release of emotional, physical, and spiritual blockages. Born into a family of healers with a generations-old tradition, Maria Lucia Bittencourt Sauer studied and continues to study with healers in her native Brazil, where Spiritism—receiving healing knowledge from the spirit world—is very familiar. In 1979, she came to Esalen (where she spent seven years living on property) and was sponsored by Esalen cofounder Dick Price to learn Spiritual Massage from Brazilian healer Luiz Gasparetto.
Maria Lucia emphasizes intentionality as the fundamental tool of any healing art designed to move energy.
Come and practice this wonderful healing technique and also practice Shamanic Ways to help each other find parts of our souls lost in early traumas or other past events. Participants must attend all sessions.
