Esalen Massage® and the Art of Continuous Presence

Jan 27 - Feb 01, 2019 Begins in 1 month
with Nora Matten & Silvia Guersenzvaig

Esalen Massage is a moving meditation, a life practice in presence and mindfulness, and an integral healing art. When practiced with focused attention, massage comes from a deep, quiet place that resides inside each of us. The practice of moving with presence 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.
