Workshop Details

Enjoy the serene beauty of Big Sur as you and your partner learn to give each other an effective massage. A tender touch can do wonders for any relationship by easing stress and deepening non-verbal communication skills. Emphasis will be on "hearing" with the hands, asking for what you need, and taking the time to truly nurture yourself and your partner. Sessions will include basic quieting exercises, brief demonstrations, hands-on guidance, and plenty of time for practice.
This weekend of mutual giving and receiving is for those who wish to learn the essential elements of Esalen Massage; no prior experience is necessary. Please join us for a pleasurable time of relaxation, renewal, and re-connection with your partner. This workshop is also useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients.
