Sacred De-armouring – a two day workshop and sessions
with Gillian Alexander
Throughout our lives we have experienced a myriad of different experiences. Those which we fully engaged and processed we let go of. Those which we feared or were uncertain of we resisted and stored somewhere in our body. We had the same response to those experiences which we did not value or enjoy. As a result we have many half lived experienced hidden away in our body and mind, but mainly our body. We have ‘protected’ each of these with a layer or layers of armour. That first time we opened our heart to another but were rejected -> another layer of protection around our heart. That time we shared a secret with someone who did not hold it secret for us – our response to withdraw a little further. The kicking we took from the bully at school, tucked away in our psyche and stored in our body where we pretend it no longer exists.
We are conscious of some of this armour, but most is subconscious and has been set up in such complex way that we are not aware we have it and certainly have no idea or way of shedding it. So it disconnects us, firstly from ourselves and connection to Source, secondly from truly connecting with others and thirdly from connecting to joy, love and bliss as this disconnection keeps us numb to feeling/feelings.
The workshop will be delivered on the basis of See One; Experience One; Learn One – you will be introduced to various dearmouring techniques and have ample time to practice these through the weekend. We will explore de-armouring techniques that focus on the whole Being; the physical body, including head, torso, limbs, hands and feet; and the emotional and energetic bodies. These sessions are given and received with all parties wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, and utilize techniques such a pressure point/acupressure, toning, shamanic transformation, energy focus, breath-work, lymphatic drainage, and intending.
The workshop is suitable for people who are interested in exploring de-armouring, those who would like to learn the techniques to be able to do exchange treatments with friends & colleagues, & as a foundation for those who would like to go on to deliver de-armouring sessions professionally.
