ABOUT SHAKING MEDICINE:
Shaking Medicine®: An organic, dynamic, rejuvenating practice which fuses the elements of movement and stillness to get you out of your head and into your body.
This practice supports and inspires instinctual intelligence - a conduit for self-healing through accessing the body’s nervous system for a safe, natural, and spontaneous involuntary shaking to occur.
As we shake, we remember how to let go of control and all effort, we relax, allowing ourselves to let go of anxieties and stress to help regulate emotions and develop greater resilience.
In this class, you can expect to enhance your strength and flexibility, improve your energy levels, heal injuries through the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, reduce inflammation, improve your sleep, create energetic and emotional hygiene for overall well-being, promoting balance and harmony on a deep level.
Shaking medicine® is, in short, the healing power of ecstatic movement. Inspired by and brought to us by nature and inspired by teachers such as Peter Levine, Bradford Keeney, Osho, Wilhelm Reich, Alexander Lowen, John Peirakkos, David Bercelli.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
This is an active meditation. It is about self-discovery, embodiment and relaxation. In our work, meditation is not concentration, but relaxation. You will simply relax into the shaking. Simply relaxing into yourself. The more you relax, the more you feel yourself open and flexible. Relaxation means falling into such a strong state where you are not doing anything, you simply relax into the shaking.
The music will support the experience. We end with a relaxation stage where you are invited to lay down, relax and let your whole Body-Mind system rest.
Expect to expect nothing but what naturally arises and unravels as you tune in to what is real for you in any given moment.
CAN YOU SHAKE YOUR WAY TO GOOD HEALTH?
Shaking Medicine® is sometimes referred to as Bioenergetic Shaking, or Kundalini shaking. It is one of the worlds oldest self-help medicines. Shaking, rocking, vibration and oscillation are natural human reactions to: Stress, Trauma & Ecstatic states. We inherently use oscillation as a tool to calm our nervous system. for example, think of why we rock a crying baby to sleep.
The practice of Shaking is known by many: Quakers, Gnostics, Taoists, Yoginis, First Nations peoples, Sufis, Druids, Zen Buddhists and more.
Shaking Medicine® is a Self-Healing body response to trauma as it can help to clear and release blocks that cause dis-ease. After a shaking the session, the body naturally shifts to a higher vibration and the shaking brings all of the body systems into balance.
Shaking Medicine® is a wonderful way to let the body really move, shake up and release stress & tension, and bring in new fresh energy - revitalising yourself Body Heart & Soul.
Shaking Medicine® is both 1) a contemporary somatic therapy practice for grounding and mobilising the Body-Mind. And 2) an ancient Shamanic technique for achieving non-ordinary states of consciousness - optional blindfolds available!
*Shaking Medicine® should not be considered as a substitute for proper medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses. It may not be suitable for everyone. Shaking can involve some physical strain and a rise in intra-abdominal pressure.
If in doubt, first consult a trained medical professional for guidance.
