Extraordinary Vessels, Menstruation, Conception and Pregnancy – Suzanne Yates @ Gong Bodywork
Jan 19 @ 9:30 am – Jan 20 @ 5:30 pm
Extraordinary Vessels, Menstruation, Conception and Pregnancy - Suzanne Yates @ Gong Bodywork

Open to Shiatsu Practitioners

TO BOOK please email jane.shiatsu@gmail.com for a booking form or to ask questions.

Learn the importance of the Extraordinary Vessels for female clients: understand the changes in the menstrual cycle and key changes in pregnancy.

You may or may not be working with women trying to conceive and pregnant women, but you feel that you would like a deeper understanding of how to support women and their families during this potentially challenging yet exciting time. You may even be afraid or unsure of how to work with certain aspects of pregnancy. The most effective way to support conception,  pregnancy, and indeed the whole maternity period is to include work with the Core Four Extraordinary Vessels, not simply Conception and Governing Vessel. This course will help you understand more fully the powerful Extraordinary Vessels.

You will:

  • Understand why the key Extraordinary Vessels of Penetrating Vessel (Sea of Blood) and Girdle Vessel are so fundamental to menstruation, conception and pregnancy
  • Learn key changes during the menstrual cycle and pregnancy
  • Learn positioning issues for pregnancy
  • Understand more about your own connection to the menstrual cycle and pregnancy
  • Learn how to work sensitively and effectively with low risk women in the second and third trimester

Sei-ki and Clean Language: Exploring Resonance through Words and 'Touch' @ Gong Bodywork

Open to Shiatsu Practitioners

One’s life is conducted by one’s spirit…a treatment has to move the spirit to restore wellbeing…In creating a quiet space through a quiet mind and body, illumination comes…The spirit moves because the environment of the space encourages it to be moved….Well-rooted presence and virtue of the practitioner are key to this environment.  Close windows and shut doors to create a space that is calm and quiet enough for concentration, so you can promote a relationship of unity between your spirit and the patient. [Ling Shu (1,8,9) and Su Wen (27)]

In Shiatsu, we know the power of touch, yet for centuries manual therapy has been considered the lowest of the healing arts, across cultures.  It is urgent we change this and put Shiatsu and/or Sei-ki in its proper place as the King (or Queen) of medicine, as Masunaga intended.  Touch is the missing piece of the mindfulness revolution and we have a great opportunity to present this to the world.  To do so, we must become more skilled with language and develop sesshin, our inner space of authority from which to speak.

This workshop is the first of many to explore language and touch and the questions we must ask ourselves, alongside the language of touch, in sesshin.  In this combination of Sei-Ki and Clean Language, Alice Whieldon and Nick Pole bring a collaborative approach to teaching and learning, with the aim of helping you find your own best way to explore the sense of yourself as person and practitioner.

This workshop:

  • Will develop listening touch (sesshin) to let the body speak
  • With a few simple questions, invite the verbal mind to listen and resume its role as the intelligent servant of the heart
  • Will sharpen your skill in language to develop discernment and authority
  • Will place the role of practitioner within a wider context of history and society
  • Facilitate you in building your practitioner identity and ability to speak about what you do
  • Give you tools to work with your clients with language, complimentary to your touch
  • This is a collaborative space where you are supported in experimenting; together we can experience the joy that comes from breaking down the walls between us
