It strikes me as very important that February, the month of love and connection, follows January, the month of new beginnings. The moments I share with my students, friends, lovers, are a perpetual beginning. It's my intention to walk into those sweet encounters openhearted and fully present.
The practice of intentional touch, through bodywork, is the ultimate expression of meeting another person with presence and intention. I believe that to be true for both the giver and receiver. Touch is not an individual art. It requires the openness and trust of two people.
Bodywork nourishes the connection between Being and Body - it allows two people to explore and celebrate the sacredness of the body and heart - and often allows entry into a space beyond the boundaries of the physical, the realm of the spirit.
Each and everyone of us has the potential to share in the nourishing experience of touch through bodywork. And what fun it is to find the gift of each other's unique Being and expression! This kind of deep connection, as with other forms of intimacy, can bring up insecurities and fears. I invite you to find your own sense of natural resilience. Show up for yourself, embrace each part of you with the openness and presence that you would extend to another person.
