Evolving as a Community with Lomi Lomi Massage Rituals with Dan Joy
Evolving as a Community ~ Introductory workshop exploring the world of multiple-handed Lomi Lomi massage rituals
The ancient Hawaiian tradition knew about a 15-day long once in a life time initiation that was carried out on highly important occasions, for example when they appointed a new chief to lead the tribe. These transformational rituals meant 10-24 hours of massages and treatments each day – so sometimes it literally went on non-stop – and were carried out by a group of people, typically the elders and healers of the family.
An interesting aspect of these rituals was the evolution that the 'givers', as a community went through while offering their presence and touch to the one 'receiving': they had the chance to engage with a collaborative process, where listening to their own inner guidance and at the same time surrendering together to something greater than themselves could take place. The much sought for balance of individual and collective self-realisation.
During our mini-workshop we will step into the energy and practice of these rituals: after some preparation we will provide each other short multiple-handed sessions.
Learning Lomi Lomi is literally a life long journey, so instead of aiming to teach Lomi Lomi, we are simply going to explore together something that Dan refers to as “conscious touch” – a deeply human quality and nourishing experience that is beyond techniques and cultures.
