Get into body

bending forward vertebra by vertebra.

17:50 – 18:05 Bill

Explain about bones being our core, crystalline energy, Channels of clear force

Explain about Shiatsu not being about meridians and points but the common feature of all forms of Shiatsu is the quality of touch. Listening Touch. Non- manipulative.

Analogy with group work, each member feels deeply heard.

Often our core spirit doesn’t feel heard as we try to fit in and please other people.

ONE ASPECT of touching bone is that it carries us into our deeps.

ANOTHER ASPECT of Bone touch is that it brings awareness to the clear individuality of each part of the body. Bones are themselves they don’t merge

Muscles join things and hold things together, they also have many functions do can get confused and muddy. Bones are clear and solitary. Sometimes touching bone can release muscles because the muscles know where they stand, the clarity of bone cuts through their confusion.

Both touching the individual vertebrae and  moving them with neighbour to separate.
