New Training in Body-mind Acupressure

I have recently returned from the lovely Lasqueti Island where I was studying body-mind counselling and five element counselling.  In a nutshell these are verbal counselling techniques that encourage the recipient to notice, be curious and become aware of sensations and feelings in the body.  Myself, I use acupressure (finger touch and pressure on the body) as well as the body-mind counselling when it seems appropriate.

I have been studying acupressure for the past four years.  Each course I take seems to have a LOT of information packed into it.  For a while I became daunted by all of the different information that was taught; things such as Chinese Medicine, counselling, advanced treatment styles, and remembering where the many acupressure points are to name a few.  At this point in my practice of acupressure I am feeling less daunted and more trusting and curious.  I have a big tool kit to draw from and as I work on a client it is a pleasurable challenge to explore, experiment and then go with my intuition as to which acupressure points I will use.  I am grateful now for my practice :)

Experiential Anatomy with Jennifer Mascall

Description:

In the work I do we begin solo then we work with our hands on another person.  Then we often get up and explore with our eyes closed. The participants will learn brand new things and go deeper into physical system they have already explored.  Each workshop is different as the group becomes its own research pod ensemble and each person brings their understanding and observations to the whole group.

Contact Improvisation dance with Anne Cooper
 
Anne Cooper teaches Contact Improvisation in a clear, fun and fluid way accessible to both the beginner and advanced student.
Her love of the form, its possibilities for improvisation of the physics and the meeting of the minds/bodies of the practitioners has kept her engaged and curious for many years. In the class we’ll work with physical principles, explore technique alone and together and we’ll improvise; alone as a group and in contact with a partner. 
Anne’s teaching is infused with her study with teachers Nancy Stark Smith, Peter Bingham, Ray Chung and Steve Paxton (who instigated the form in 1972) during 20  years.
Anne is also a performer of both improvised and choreographed works-her own, and others, and an avid CI ‘jammer’.
 
COST:   ONLY $70 for the entire weekend or  $50 for one day.
