Introduction to the Alchemy of Abdominal Massage
with Kerys in Ettlingen, Germany
4th – 6th November 2022
Our abdomen is our core, our energy center – where vitality and depletion can exist, depending on how harmoniously we live with our vital organs on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. It is the one place where we have all lived at some point. We are all creatures of the abdomen – the belly – the core underworld – the center of the universe – the beginning of all creative human life force. Unfortunately, as we grow from childhood into adulthood most of us lose touch with ourselves from the waist down, so this course is aimed at igniting the reconciliation process with our core.
During this 3-day introduction course to the work of Abdominal Massage, we will learn how to decode and uncover the power that we have in the palms of our hands to create an environment of trust and safety when diving into the Pandora’s box of the abdomen – the individual treasure chest of secrets, emotions and potential. By placing our ears into the palms of our hands we will practice deep listening in order to allow the organs to speak to us of their most hidden truths. We will touch upon ancient shamanic traditions, energetic fields, Cranio Sacral bodywork and Chi Nei Tsang principles. It is an invitation for us to go deeper into our own self-awareness and self-healing from deep within our core so that we can facilitate this process for others.
Kerys has been working with therapeutic touch for more than 20 years now. She started with Thai massage and over the years has become more and more fascinated with the massage work related directly in the abdomen. Having studied a variety of approaches ranging from Chi Nei Tsang and Cranio Sacral to Osteothai and Mayan abdominal massage, she has been exploring with different bellies over the past few years and has fallen in love with this alchemical mixture of shamanism and practical techniques around this area of the body. She has witnessed transformations in people, as they come into a deeper connection with their core center and begin to wake up to their energetic ties to the past, to pain and to unhealthy habits. Her work as a doula has also brought her into a deeper connection with this part of our bodies and her dedication to the path of the sacred woman has led her to practice in a way which sees beyond the physical.
She runs women’s retreats, both on and off line, raises her three children, writes, sings, dances and connects with the path of the medicine woman and the forces of nature – both internally and externally.
