Sei Ki HeartTouch at Island Yoga

Sei Ki HeartTouch at Island Yoga

This 5 Day retreat is for professional therapists and life enthusiasts alike!

We will explore the foundations of human and therapeutic relationship, cultivating our sensitivity to Ki (life energy), our empathy and compassion both for ourselves and for others and our capacity to offer resonance based healing.

Sei Ki HeartTouch, an interpretation of the work of the late Akinobu Kishi is both a practical Ki Therapy and a Way, a path of spiritual development through compassionately meeting others in bodywork.

Our journey together will be one of returning to simplicity, to our original nature. Finding our relationship to the ground, our centre, our heart and opening the raw energy of the Hara.

Additional Notes for Professional Therapists

The goal with Sei Ki HeartTouch as a therapist is to help us to develop our own natural way of working with our clients, not to create some additional kind of technique system, although you can model my personal style if you like.

Whatever techniques you eventually bring to your work is up to you, but the quality of your touch and the openness that the clients meets you with, will be much deeper.

This work has evolved from the teachings of Akinobu Kishi, who was known first as the demonstrator for Masunaga Sensei's Zen Shiatsu, but went on to spend his life developing what he called "Sei Ki", a spiritual path of self development through meeting others in therapeutic relationship.

This workshop is an introduction to his work which goes very deep. I will share what I can of it with you in the time available. There is no connection to Reiki. It's roots are in the Shiatsu and Shinto traditions especially Katsugen Undo or Regenerative Movement from the hara.

When this is part of who we are, it is shared with the client through our touch. No two treatments are the same, some people will be still with change happening deep within, others will make spontaneous movements or sound as their body adjusts and heals itself guided by its own intelligence. This is very interesting work.

Many practitioners ultimately use a combination of Sei Ki and technique based practices in their therapeutic work depending on the needs of the client.
