Metta- " The Act of loving-kindness
Healer, heal thyself
Love sees, nurtures, and supports all of life and honors its sacredness and of itself creates healing energy.
What kind of lovingness brings about almost automatic healing within the body? It is unconditional love, that which is non-judgmental, forgiving, and aligned with understanding and compassion. When we look at ourselves in this way, we begin to heal. Health is an expression of levels of consciousness
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.
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.
