Join Randy Cummins in an experiential look at how we can benefit from:

  • Listening
  • Trusting our instincts
  • Challenging ourselves to work beyond our standard routines
  • Applying knowledge of both physical and energetic anatomy

Open to all disciplines and levels of bodyworkers, this one day exploration will integrate principles of Shoshin “Beginner’s Mind” Shiatsu into a practice which looks at each client and asks, “What is appropriate in this moment?” From here, a session evolves based on what we feel, how our client reacts, and what we intuitively know by constantly enticing our minds into the present moment. This workshop explores a true life experience of how we look at and address the body during a continually evolving session.

Practitioners of various healing modalities will receive opportunity for growth in their field of work:

Acupuncturists will have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and understanding of meridian location and function, and to experience direct, hands-on interaction with the channels and tsubos.

Massage therapists and bodyworkers will discover a truly integrative form of bodywork, combining myofascial soft tissue techniques and stretches with the location and stimulation of individual tsubos / trigger points for common imbalances.

Yoga and pilates instructors will learn to incorporate meridian-specific stretches and movements, as well as breath and meditation techniques, to facilitate the flow of energy throughout the body.
