This workshop is for beginners and more experienced practitioners of Sei-ki, Shiatsu or any other bodywork method; the focus will be on gravity as idea, experience and aim.

No previous experience of Sei-ki or Shiatsu is required.

Sei-ki is a development of Shiatsu combining it with reido or ‘soul shining’ from Shinto. An art rather than a medical model, Sei-ki identifies health as our alignment with our original life movement and the wider environment. When our centre of gravity is properly rooted, the spirit is at ease, the vision clear; we are free and joyful. Sei-ki helps to bring the centre of gravity to its natural centre.

Sei-ki is a subtle but powerful practice. This workshop introduces the basis of the work and you will experience it through demonstration and practice. We will also explore surrender, opening up to reality, through spontaneous movement (katsugen) and breathing exercises.

She studied closely with Kishi (founder of Sei-ki) for many years and co-authored the book 'Sei-ki: Life in Resonance, the Secret Art of Shiatsu' (2011). She has taught workshops in the UK and internationally for over 20 years and has an academic background in Philosophy, Theology and Feminist Theory.

The course will be taught in English, translation to Finnish is possible if needed.
