Healing Touch Weekend

“Touch precedes consciousness” means that, in a certain sense, healing can begin before the moment of physical contact… and further, even before the intention has risen to the level of the consciousness. From where then does the intention arise?
In this event we are very excited to offer what are likely to be profoundly transformational tools to enliven and enrich your relationship to yourself, your lover or friend and beyond that to your family or professional life.

The weekend may include, but is not limited to…
~ meditations from Vigyan Bhairav Tantra (Book of Secrets)
~ sitting meditation for refining intention
~ tantric partner massage
~ tantric caress meditation
~ taoist self-massage techniques
~ healing qigong exercises
~ partner healing forms

Though the primary sense we’ll be working with is touch we will also explore practices which will enliven the senses of smell, hearing, vision and taste as well as intuition.

This workshop is open to couples and singles interested in creating a foundation for establishing trust and warmth in connection with a partner and accessing a deeper sense of harmony and connection as a basis for healing through lovemaking.

*Note that this event requires an equal number of participants as we will be working in pairs.  It is therefore, recommended to come along with your spouse, lover or a friend whom you feel close to and trust.  Otherwise we will need to find a suitable partner for the event.

Though the style of touch in this event may, at times be intimate, our intention is to create a space of trust and healing. Therefore, touch will not be explicitly sexual in nature.

Kalpita and Atithi are a Tantric couple on the path of Sacred Sexuality. Their complimentary differences as individuals combined with their experience as teachers and as a couple has proven to be a dynamic and sensitive force. Together they have completed Anand Sarita’s Soul Mate Couple’s Training where healing and intimate touch was a constant presence.

Kalpita’s experience as a dance teacher and choreographer for over 25 years along with her participation in many kinds of therapies (Reiki, Prana Healing, Tachyon, Join Release, Holistic Massage to name a few) has given her a unique and intuitive gift for healing touch.

Since 2003 Atithi has been on an increasingly committed spiritual path which has included yoga, qigong, taijichuan, Thai massage, Reiki and most recently Chinese Medicine. Healing touch is part of his daily personal practice and is often a feature in his style of teaching yoga and qigong.

There will be tea breaks and a lunch break.

Thai Massage

“The heat and humidity in Thailand were always a challenge during my training. Nevertheless, my instructor, Nipa said that I had an excellent sense of touch.”

Atithi has trained in Thai Massage in two separate schools in Thailand in 2011 and has been practicing this art ever since.  His approach to massage is to offer a highly individualized experience created ‘in the moment’ for each recipient.  Through a variety of techniques that may include joint release, foot massage, deep tissue and acupressure as well as standard Thai techniques, Atithi uses his many years of studies as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine as a diagnostic aid to inform his personal style of bodywork.

Traditional Thai Massage has been described as “someone doing yoga for you.” It is a form of bodywork that works mainly through the release of tension and blockages along the meridians (energetic pathways in the body).  It also involves stretching and deep massage. The treatment is given on a mattress, on the floor rather than on a table. No oils are used and the client wears loose, comfortable clothing. Though a normal Thai massage takes from 1.5 hours to 3 hours, clients may request individualized sessions lasting from 1 to 2 hours or more.  To find out more go to Spirit Dome Qigong.
