Hiroyoshi Tahata has been working to integrate the Japanese concepts of Hara and Ma with Rolfing for twenty-five years. The approach he has developed is transformative and broadens a practitioner’s field of perception and informed touch.
This workshop will explore:
How the spatial relationship between practitioner and client facilitates safety within a therapeutic process
How we, as practitioners, ‘condition’ the field from our very first encounter with clients
The somatic impact of the pandemic:
How social distancing may have affected our ability to sense field relationships
How the practitioner’s intentional positioning can reset a pattern of shallow breathing and create security
How to release eye tension related to excessive screen use
How we can work with Hara sensation in remote sessions
