Our Fluid System: The Body’s Dynamic Matrix (Asheville, NC) with Bob Lehnberg

Our body has a cellular and interstitial fluid foundation. These fluids traverse membranes to transform into blood, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), synovial fluid and lymph. Each fluid expresses and is receptive to different qualities of somatic presence and touch. We will explore and discern the qualities of grounded, weighted bloodful touch (including arterial, venous and capillary- isoring qualities) and the rarified, spacious cerebrospinal fluid rhythm. The balance of fluid presence, touch and movement lies between these two. Along with knowing your client’s affinities, developing your range of fluid connection will aid you, the massage therapist & bodyworker to communicate and facilitate transformation in your client. This class is based largely on principles of Body-Mind Centering® and is aimed to help practitioners refine their somatic presence, manual applications and support somatic intelligence through skilled touch and movement. Participants learn to broaden and apply their touch and presence to the modalities and protocols they already use. Class is open to all levels of experience. We begin class with simple qigong exercise and continue with demonstration, hands-on and experiential activities. Please wear comfortable, modest clothing.

Our Internal Organs: The Body’s Contents and Vitality (Asheville, NC) with Bob Lehnberg

Our internal organs are contained by our skeletal structure and provide us with the vital functions of life as well as our sense of self, volume and authenticity. Physiologically they perform the basic bodily functions of breathing, circulation and digestion. Spatially they offer us three-dimensional presence in posture and movement. Organs also serve as the seat of emotions, feelings and inner reactions. Through an embodied approach, we can utilize unique ways to facilitate access and provide balance to organs individually and as a whole system. Knowledge of their location, shape and tone informs us to adjust the weight, pressure and rhythm of our touch. In an easeful way, we find balance and connection within ourselves and our clients. This class is based largely on principles of Body-Mind Centering® and is aimed to help practitioners refine their somatic presence, manual applications and support somatic intelligence through skilled touch and movement. Participants learn to broaden and apply their touch and presence to the modalities and protocols they already use. Class is open to all levels of experience.
