- 5-Step Neck and Shoulder release workshop
Wednesday Oct 26th at Mansons – 2 Hours, $40. Learn to find key neck and shoulder points, plus distal points to help release stubborn tensions. Practice the relaxing Basic JSD Neck Release on oneself and others, holding 5 key neck & shoulder points bilaterally. This is a great workshop to give you a taste of JSD, the neck and shoulder release is a wonderful session on it’s own or to add to other bodywork. Good skills to get you through the winter!
“The Sun and Moon are visiting each other” is Marisol’s explanation of the equinox (which happened Thursday Sept 29th at 7:21am). Around the equinox is a great time for bodywork and personal growth workshops. It’s also a great time to reflect on the last quarter year. How was your summer? What have you accomplished? Have there been any major shifts in awareness? It’s good to check in because sometimes we don’t give ourselves enough credit or see what we have accomplished.
We are now fully in Metal season. Metal is time for introspection, courage, letting go. The leaves drop from the trees, plants droop and go toward the earth. Nature is reminding us to let go, to go inward, the root vegetables are now mature and ready for harvest. We can light fires, go for a stroll and kick the dry leaves and prepare food stores for the winter.
The busy summer season has screeched to a halt. I feel like I have some breathing room! Time to spend with Marisol, time to do creative projects and of course to get ready for our journey to Mexico. It’s always a great opportunity for me to go through our belongings and decide what we really love, what brings a spark, what gets stored, what gets packed… and all else can go to the free store for others to love.
Often during Equinox and Solstices I find myself visiting my teachers, taking workshops and getting bodywork. It was unconscious at first, but now I know it’s a perfect time for a seasonal tune-up. This season I went to assist a Basic JSD workshop, part of my requirements to become a JSD Teacher. The workshop went really well, and reminded me of how powerful this work is. People who go through the workshop get five consecutive days of JSD and a clear view and of life direction and contact with their inner guidance for the future. I plan to offer a Basic Workshop in Spring. I also participated in a She Power, Sacred Sexuality workshop at Hollyhock with Minke De Vos and Mahara Brenna. Excellent vitality skills for women! And we had a fun Full Moon Ceremony at the end.
