Touch is the first of the five senses to develop in utero and is the last of the human senses that is diminished in old age. Touch is essential for healthy growth and life itself! Babies who do not receive touch stop growing, and if prolonged, will die. Touch carries deep and nonverbal wisdom, and can serve as a doorway for restoring safety, security, and connection. The experience of ‘shaping’ and being ‘shaped to’ doesn’t go away in adulthood. The deep nourishment that comes from healthy, curious and compassionate touch is life long.
In this experiential hands-on journey, we explore the three fundamental types of therapeutic touch. We also demystify the common stories, mindsets, and assumptions that interfere with our ability to safely and lovingly give and receive touch. Join us as we utilize the essential and impactful power of touch that can be conveyed with hands-on yoga adjustments, support for those moving through a challenge, or to nurture an environment of safety and connection. Discover the context that supports transformational touch, and how this can feed both giver and receiver in profound and wonderful ways. Led by Heath Reed and Audrey Hazekamp.
