From 1:00 to 4:00 pm on the last Sundays of each month, join Pippa for the Healing Relaxation mini-workshop. A once a month Sunday afternoon opportunity to put aside the stresses of a busy life through experiencing nurturing and coordination activities from the Tara Rokpa Therapy Process.
Tara Rokpa Therapy is a ‘come as you are’ therapeutic approach developed by the late Akong Tulku Rinpoche working together with western therapists. This path is based on the principles of Tibetan Medicine. The Tibetan word Sowa means both to prevent damage and heal damage by the same method. The guided self and group supported therapy process consists of different modules which you may wish to explore further.
The introduction to this profound work offers you the opportunity to experience simple fun and creative activities for nurturing yourself and learning to coordinate more skillfully with others. This includes guided relaxation, co-ordination activities, healing touch and exploring fun creativity through the use of colour and materials from nature.
Through getting to know and care for yourself you may become more open to the needs of those around you in your life.
Share some fun and healing exercises from the Tara Rokpa Therapy process to learn to relax and let go. Exercises include:
- Deep Healing Relaxation and visualisation;
- Communication exploration activities;
- Healing touch;
- Exploring creativity with art materials and colour.
Cost: R150 (Concessions available)
