Shiatsu and Death – with Tamsin Grainger @ Gong Bodywork
Oct 6 @ 10:00 am – Oct 7 @ 5:30 pm

Open to Shiatsu Graduates

As Shiatsu Practitioners, how can we gracefully support our clients and ourselves during the death or dying process?

Death and dying will touch us all as therapists at some point and can affect us deeply, yet in our culture death is seldom spoken about openly for fear of causing distress to others or to ourselves. This weekend therefore, is a precious opportunity to reflect on our personal beliefs about death, our involvement with critical illness and the impact that the topic of death and dying might have on our client at multiple levels.

In a safe and supportive space, we will begin to:

  • Explore how death is viewed in Chinese Medicine
  • Address the energetic patterns of dying on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels
  • Reflect on our personal ethical and / or spiritual approach towards death and how this influences our practice
  • Explore how we can best create a supportive space for ourselves and our clients during the dying process
  • Discuss counselling, listening techniques, integrating beliefs and working with compassionate awareness

We will share our experiences, using gentle reflective and creative means: meditation, personal and collaborative reflection, and, of course, Shiatsu.

For booking information please contact Jane Lyons on jane.shiatsu@gmail.com
