METTA IN MEXICO 2023
Healer, heal thyself

SAYULITA, MEXICO

February 21-28, 2023
 

David Roma and Kelly Scott are excited to share their love and passion for Thai and Osteothai practice, the culture, and spiritual elements are infinite. Teachings from traditional Thai massage to Osteothai techniques and integration for all levels of practice are welcomed to join us in this unique setting.

"Metta" the act of loving kindness

You can know the most amazing techniques, but what really defines how good your massage will be is your touch. If your touch is one of listening, it is out of softness.

INTENTION

Healer, heal thyself - As we grow our practice evolves. Our touch softens, and our listening skills become highly attuned.

We must first work within ourselves, deepening our awareness, and listening to the subtleties of our thoughts and behaviors. Practice Metta to ourselves, the act of loving-kindness, and take time to contemplate life. These are key ingredients for the Healer within us. 

Our Focus

 

Meditation  Our morning meditation will set the stage for the day, getting quiet on the inside, and aligning ourselves with the earth, sky, and heart. Spending time together as a community of bodyworkers, refining our listening skills and techniques will unite us in the present moment

Yoga/Movement  The purpose of yoga or movement, is to build strength, awareness, and harmony in both the mind and body, yoking the mind and body connection is a developed practice to train the body and mind to self-observe and become aware of our own true nature.

Thai Training  This is a unique setting for the cultivation of your Thai Massage skills. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, this is a chance for you to refine your skills, and hone the practice of deep listening. The 4 bhrama viharas, the sublime states of mind. Metta. Loving Kindness- The love that cares, focuses on kindness and love towards all living beings, Karuna: Compassion sees into the suffering of beings.  Mudita: Sympathetic Joy ... The love that appreciates is a pure joy unadulterated by self-interest. Upekkha: Equanimity- the love that "allows", it is the ground for wisdom and freedom and the protector of compassion and love.
