About the Event
Our intention By embodying this shared experience with an open heart, you can trust that whatever comes up is meant to show itself. And that the process will bring you awareness and guidance when taking your next steps on the path to feeling truly empowered and connected.
What is an ecstatic massage experience? Take a moment now to read through the outline of the journey and feel if it stirs something in you ♥.
On arrival you will be welcomed by our host, asked to sign in, given tea and a chance to land at our wonderful, peaceful location by the lake.
Part 1 - Ecstatic four-handed massage
Here, you will be collected by your massage therapist team. Two therapists (four-handed massage) who have been carefully selected for their intuitive healing skills and wisdom.
Intention You’ll be invited to work with an intention. Perhaps you want to welcome something in? Or maybe it’s about letting go? Whatever you discover, you can trust it’s the right thing. Take a moment to share and connect with your massage team, then it’s time to begin the experience.
Meditation The first part of the experience will take place in a shared space with other participants, and their intuitive massage teams. We all share the journey together. Beginning with a short meditation to ground, breathe and connect, everyone will then be guided through an ecstatic wave-like experience via specially-curated music and guidance from our ecstatic dance facilitator, Bart van Meeteren.
Massage Think of it as an ecstatic dance but through the medium of massage. Allow your body to surrender, dance and to let go. Hold your intention in your heart and be open to whatever comes.
With four hands massaging you, and each part of the ecstatic wave rich in different qualities, this will be an experience you’re unlikely to forget! The massage will flow back to stillness and grounding. Then your therapeutic team will bring you back into the space, and connect with you once the wave is complete.
Part 2 - Guided healing for integration and grounding
Now it’s time to enter the healing room where shamanic healer, Villia De Koningh, will offer tea, raw chocolate, and lead everyone through a guided healing process to enable everything to integrate and settle. There’ll also be an opportunity to share your experiences of the massage if you wish.
The intention for this healing is to allow you to feel empowered, and gain insight and learning that you can take back with you out into the ‘real world’. We finish the whole experience by giving you a self-care gift bag with all sorts of helpful things to support you on your healing journey.
