Description

“But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.”

- Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid

We may know the difference between pain and suffering in theory, but how do we find actual relief in the throes of stress, trauma, and chaos?

Wisdom of The Body provides powerful tools like:

• Profoundly nurturing, nonsexual physical touch

• Ways to release old stories and hurts so they no longer run the show

• How to heal from neglect--even more than abuse, neglect can be insidious

• Finding our center in the midst of turmoil

• Reframing suffering-causing thoughts into compassion-sparking ones


You asked...we listened. Instead of watching so many demos, we're adding some more participatory work as well, so everyone will have the option to participate.

Join us as we play in this field, with a focus on real-world skills to move beneath the suffering to transform our experience of the moment. Up to four people will have a chance to directly receive the work. You'll also learn about the upcoming 9-month Immersion.

One former Immersion student said, "I have my MA in Transpersonal Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder CO since 2005. I have been in private practice for over a decade and worked in various capacities with multiple certifications in massage, qigong healing, stress management, comfort touch, Spiral Dynamics, Esalen massage and more. Working with Jill over the past couple of years has given me more than anything I've gained from any of those certifications." - Velina Lujan, yourstressmanager.com

You might see sessions that take place on:

- The couch (for dialogue, inquiry, empathy and philosophical journeys)
- The floor (for movement, sound and vertical physical exploration)
- The mat (for more full-on, free-form nonsexual physical contact)
- The massage table (for more receptive physical contact)

At the end, we'll talk about our upcoming offerings and events to help you go deeper, get more support, metabolize what's going on around us, and learn more about this unusual practice called Wisdom of The Body. New clients will also get a 24-hour chance to get some discounts on 2017 WisBo offerings.

Tickets are priced from $5-$15 advance, and $20 at the door, to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to experience this work. (I set the value of the evening at $30-$40)

As you choose your ticket price, please consider what you can afford, and also what others with less means may be able to afford.

I look forward to working with you!

Warmly,


Jill
