Self-healing – A traditional Thai perspective | We are all healers and we can all heal.
Imagine going into a room and noticing a loved one in pain, physically or emotionally; how would you react?
The answer to this question seems to be universal and timeless.
The first thing we would do is lay our hands on them in a loving, comforting and, most importantly, healing manner.
This is healing; intuitive, simple, straight forward and natural.
During this workshop we shall tap into our innate ability to self-heal. We will understand how to take care of ourselves; and, how we may expand our ability to treat others.
The first part (1 hour) will feature a brief history and overview of Traditional Thai Medicine followed by a theoretical introduction to the Thai perspective on healing. We will learn how to look at our bodies as being made of Earth/Water, animated by Fire/Wind; while, occupying Space. We will also learn about Sen (Pathways), Thai points, 32 body parts, 32 Kwan (Animating spirit), wind gates, heart mind and more. Finally, we shall discuss the Thai understanding of dis-ease and imbalance causation to guide our healing choices and actions.
The second part (2 hours) will feature a practical introduction to Reusi Dat Ton (Commonly known as Thai yoga), an ancient self-healing system that is a major aspect of Traditional Medicine in Thailand. us: The system consists of self-massage, dynamic movement, postures, stretching, breathing exercises, mantras, visualization and meditation. Its principal purpose is to cultivate and explore one’s own body and mind, while understanding how they function.
