Grounding in the Hara

Here we are at the summer solstice, expansive energy of Fire Element surrounds us.

To stay grounded in a time of expansive energy, one needs to maintain natural balance by being centered in the hara.

I feel this is especially important for shiatsu practitioners. From the hara we can give strong, skillful, and appropriate shiatsu. How is this done?

One way I have found is to prepare myself before beginning my sessions: scan my body, allow my mind-chatter to dissipate, sink into hara, and expand out 360° around me. Read more about Grounding in the Hara

Touching Wholeness

We have recently passed the Spring Equinox: equal night length and day length, Yin and Yang balance.
How does that balance reflect in our lives? How does that balance reflect in our practice? How often do we touch into the wholeness of our being?

I am particularly thinking of how the bodywork therapy that we practice can be supported by the conscious act of touching into a personal sense of wholeness.

"Feeling whole, even for a brief moment, nourishes us at a deep level. It is the source of healing and strength when faced with stress and pain." Read more about Touching Wholeness
