PROCESS ACUPRESSURE 1A: Foundations with Jackie May

PROCESS ACUPRESSURE 1A: FoundationsTotal 24 hours - see full information on dates/times of sessions below.

Process Acupressure (PA) is a simple, yet profound, holistic method that combines traditional acupressure (to a fully-clothed body) with a process approach to consciousness. It facilitates healing and the natural growth process that arises from within the individual. Process skills are taught that facilitate clarity - in mind, emotions, and spirit. Soul centred development is emphasized. Although acupressure is a lifelong study, this course will empower you to work effectively with energy flow in the body including both meridians and chakras, toward greater balance. You will learn tools that give you confidence. PA can be used alone for self-help or easily given to another. It can also be combined with another body modality. For example, our work with the Great Central Channel strengthens the energetic pathway of the spine and is an excellent complement to Acupuncture, Chiropractic, CranioSacral Therapy, Massage Therapy, rehab modalities, and more.

Dates/Times:
The course runs over 3 weekends, starting with an online session on the Friday evening from 6-8pm. The Saturday sessions will be in-person trainings near Wimborne, Dorset (covid regulations permitting), from 10am - 5.30pm. If we are unable to go ahead in person because of any possible covid restrictions in the future, the course will be adapted to run with more online sessions, followed by an in-person day as soon as permitted.
For those of you who live at a distance, we are hoping to be able to offer the option of attending 2 of the Saturdays as online participants. It would be important to attend at least one in-person day to learn the method of touch used in this form of acupressure and to experience giving and receiving sessions.
