Touch is a gift from existence - more and more people in the Humanistic Sciences are becoming aware of it and its potential to realign and harmonise; to 'discharge' the human energy field.
Touch and be touched - Human beings need touch as we need food. Touch is healing for mind and body. Loving touch leads to direct relaxation and release of the hormone oxytocin, which breaks down stress hormones and is associated with feelings of love, trust, serenity and calmness. The brain interprets such touch as a sign of connectedness and a sense of safety. It has long been scientifically proven that touch has a healing effect on the physical and psychological level, regardless of the clinical picture.
As children we mostly did not experience enough contact or have a sense of being held. In our society today touch is also getting less - this often leads to a feeling of isolation, loneliness, alienation and helplessness. We are just beginning to understand how important and profound the experience of human contact is to our inner development and what a tremendous resource physical touch is. The skin is our largest organ and millions of sensitive nerve cells register even the smallest stimuli. Through these cells, touch has a direct impact on the hormonal balance and on the autonomic nervous system, reducing stress, anxiety and tension and relieving pain and psychosomatic discomfort.
The wisdom of the body - The body is a mystery, its wisdom and knowledge is astonishing. The body reflects our lives to the finest detail, it constantly gives us information on our well-being, it leads us if we allow it. The language of the body is very different from that of the intellect - it is a felt, non verbal experiencing. We have forgotten how to listen, how to feel and to act out of our felt sense. Our body is a natural flow of energy and being aligned with it, is to be aligned with your creative potential.
This training is for everyone who would like to deepen their understanding of the human body, and for those who would like to deepen their bodywork skills. It is also for those of you who want to get back in touch and have a safe and nourishing enviroment to anchor into while transitioning through difficult times.
These trainings are unique and many people come to get in touch with their body, their life, their 'felt sense' and learn through touch the art of communication.
Although you get an extensive grounding in the Rebalancing technique of deep massage, as you will read in the testemonials, there is a lot, lot more to these trainings than just bodywork. And for those of you who are attracted by the magic of touch, by nonverbal sharing, I welcome you warmly and with humour, because that is exactly what got me, and how my journey began!

We live in a time of great upheaval. Today, the understanding of the female as well as the male is in huge upheaval and a great transformation is possible.
For centuries, as women we have defined ourselves through others. We have often heard and experienced from an early age on, that we are either too much or too little. Out of this conflict, we often choose the muddy and lukewarm compromise. Rather than expressing ourselves, we internalise this conflict - often resulting in shame and directing the energy against ourselves through self-doubt, self-criticism, rejection of the female body etc. In order not to feel this, we seek confirmation from outside through culture, social media, relationships and success. Then we try to fulfill that expectation, caught in the search for perfection and the inevitable failure. Most importantly, we have lost access to our natural, precious and valuable femininity - as well as the ability to love ourselves as we are.
Only when we value and love ourselves, is the true encounter with others possible.
21-22 March 2020
10:00 to 17:00
Schwanthalerstraße 91 (2nd floor)
During these two days you can get an impression, a taste of how the body shapes itself around our life, how the body is a direct expression of our attitude to life and how the connection we have with it can influence us.
The body constantly guides us, talks to us and has a natural intelligence - unfortunately, most of us today, have lost our relationship to the body and have forgotten its language.
The magic of touch gets us in harmony with our body again and enables us to share it with others. You will get a feel of how we teach, of the space we create, and how it is to touch and be touched.

In this workshop we explore and learn how to touch and support people who have gone through traumatic experiences.
Here are some of the participants responses to the Rebalancing Training ...
Ihr Lieben, es war eine spannende Reise mit Euch…viele Eindrücke, schöne Aussichten, manchmal tiefe Schluchten und reißende Ströme. Ihr habt definitiv Spuren in meinem Herzen hinterlassen. Euch zu beobachten ist eine wahre Freude. Eure Erfahrungen und die Leichtigkeit, die ihr ausstrahlt, nehme ich mit und werde sie zu meiner eigenen machen. DANKE FÜR ALLES. Katja
The training was great! It is not only the safe and healing space filled with warmth and cordiality that you create. What really convinced me and far exceeded my evaluations is that everything became visible and tangible that I previously knew in theory about storing experiences / emotions in the body and the releasing healing power of mindful touch. In myself and in other participants, I repeatedly experienced how energy blockages were released through touch (also from long-gone traumas) and repressed feelings moved again.
Ich danke euch aus tiefstem Herzen, dass ihr mich so liebevoll, herausfordernd, ermutigend auf meinem Weg zu mir selbst begleitet habt. Die Liebe und Wärme, die ihr ausstrahlt, eure Präsenz und Wahrhaftigkeit, hat meine Seele berührt und Heilung ermöglicht. Ihr macht die Welt zu einem schöneren Ort ! Namaste, Angela
Liebe Bonnie, lieber Anu, es ist für mich eine beeindruckende Erfahrung SEIN zu dürfen. Es ist grossartig von Euch beiden da abgeholt oder einfach nur da gelassen zu werden, wo ich mich gerade befinde. Es ist ein spannender Vorgang, dieses Rebalancing, welches mit der Berührung des Körpers beginnt und dann einfach alles berührt. DANKE für alles. Kerstin,
