Workshop Details

Introduction to Lumassage Body/Spirit work

This form of Bodywork comes from the belief that we are moving from Homo sapiens to Homo luminous beings.  I have combined 3 modalities of body oriented studies to facilitate high levels of awareness and ease for living.  In order to do this work one must inhabit all of oneself: Body structure, spiritual flow, and direct connection to spirit.  These three modalities have given me centering and guidance while experiencing the polarity of being in a human body and spirit at the same time.

  • The teachings of Ida Rolf: structural bodywork

Dr. Ida Rolf discovered it was possible to reshape fascia with manipulation and that it would stay in the new shape. She realized it was possible to treat painful issues like scoliosis and sciatica without surgery, using this reshaping on a whole body basis.

  • Cranio-Sacral: brings spirit through fluids and rhythms

Cranio-Sacral Therapy involves a very gentle touch of the practitioner’s hands, both for diagnosis and for treatment. This light contact may be taken up on the cranium (the head), the sacrum (the tail-bone) or any other part of the body as appropriate, identifying subtle disturbances to the free motion of body tissues, the free circulation of body fluids, and the unrestricted flow of fundamental energy, potency, or vitality – the Breath of Life.

  • Shamanistic practises: practitioner holds and role models the sacred connection with spirit

Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments/illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul/spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness.
