Heart Meditation: Practices to open your heart and heal yourself

IMG_7768.jpg
My work with Saša has been life transforming… finding the still center that “knows” how to awaken the rest of me, my soul, heart and body into awareness…into health. D.S.

We are meant to be healthy, to feel love and to thrive. The essence of healing lies in our heart. If we want to experience deeper love and harmony in our lives, we are invited to look inside of our heart and meet whatever has not been fully embraced yet.

Heart Meditations guide us to enter into a deep, sincere dialogue with our heart to transform our unprocessed emotions and self-limiting patterns into a new vision that is fully honoring our essence.

Healing occurs when we meet our own heart with loving, unconditional presence to awaken pure life-force flowing through each cell of our body.  In the process we reconnect with our source energy and awaken our self-healing power within, feeling vital and clear. 

Heart Meditations are integration of Tong and Ling Yuan (Qigong methods for cultivating life and reaching our true nature) with 20 years of personal exploration of healing and living from our inner untethered essence. 

This class is inviting you to:

Transform stress into vital healing energy
Open your heart to experience deeper love
Heal what still needs healing inside of you
Strengthen your connection to the source energy
Transform limiting beliefs or trauma into life-giving energy
Cultivate deep inner peace, well-being and wisdom


Come and join us for this deeply nourishing and transformative experience. You will feel the difference in yourself!

When : Mondays, 6-7:15pm
Where: Fully Alive Healing Center, 200 Saunders Ave, San Anselmo
Contribution: $90 for 6 classes, $18 drop-in
Registration required: call 415.342.0413

Summer Feminine Renewal Retreat

IMG_7857 - Version 3.jpg

In the heart of the feminine there is an untethered wilderness that has the capacity to re-imagine, mend the broken and bring to life the disowned.

Feminine Renewal is an invitation for every woman to nourish her essence, re-connect with her source energy and awaken the healing power of her heart.

During these self-healing retreats we take time to retrieve our life-force that has been held in our past, let go of what is not serving us anymore to discover truer ways of nourishing ourselves. By transforming our challenges into our medicine we center our energies into our creation power and our heart wisdom.

Feminine Renewal Retreat is a place for you to unwind, come home to yourself, heal, reconnect with what is truly alive for you, let go of the past, dream into new possibilities, commune with other women, celebrate the feminine, gain insight into your life, turn inward into the silence of wisdom in your heart.

Through body-mind practices and deep heart listening we unlock the wisdom of our bodies and hearts to reclaim our vital healing life-force and reconnect with our inner guidance. We will enter a deeper conversation of our hearts that is vital and alive, and that opens us into a deeper connection with our spiritual powers as women.  

This is an opportunity and an invitation for you to…
 

…ignite your “shakti” - your vital healing life-force

…nourish your essence and reconnect to the source

…transform difficult feelings into creative energy

…retrieve your life-force and heal your body

… bring forth and embody your feminine wisdom

…respond to the call of your heart and its longing

…take your place and thrive without reservation


Something profound occurs when we enter into a deep listening and give full permission to our feminine essence to unfold. I encourage you to give her that space and time.

Rediscover your Source Energy: Heal from Within

IMG_0242.JPG

Rediscover your Source Energy: Heal from Within

A workshop with Saša Bencina and Hasso Wittboldt-Mueller

Do you long to...

  • Feel more vital, healthy and alive

  • Access your deeper life-force to heal yourself more effectively

  • Live in greater calm, inner peace and fulfillment

  • Experience deeper connection and love

  • Be more guided by your source energy

Often our life-force is being unknowingly held in our past experiences. Unresolved emotions and conditioned beliefs slowly disconnect us from our vital source energy. Our awareness gets cut off from the greatness of who we are; thus, our life energy diminishes. This is one of the primary root causes of any health challenge that is affecting us physically, emotionally and mentally.

During our workshop: Rediscover your Source Energy, we will guide you through a process of clearing and transforming unprocessed experiences of your your body-mind. By cultivating a deeper presence and open state of awareness, we will be able to reconnect with and clear the root-causes of our disturbance and recreate a new link to your source energy.

This day-long self-healing retreat is a powerful opportunity to restore your body and heal your heart in deep essential ways. We are inviting you to transform your core patterns, which are currently holding you back and step more fully into your authentic life expression.

We will support you to unravel the unquestioned beliefs, undigested emotions and deep-seated tensions to allow your essence to become alive again, to heal and to create the life you long for.

Location: Fully Alive Healing Center in San Anselmo
Contribution: $125 by April 15th, $150 after (includes a nourishing lunch)

Healing Dance and Meditation: Open your heart, clear your mind and reconnect with your life-force

IMG_2106 - Version 6.JPG

Healing Dance and Meditation is a movement practice that invites you to connect with the wisdom of your body and to experience the profundity of how authentic movement  can heal.

By attuning to our heart and following our authentic movement, our whole being begins to unwind and return to a natural state of openness, well-being and peace. By moving through blocked energies we arrive in our true aliveness and inner connection.

The gift of being present, when you are grounded in your body and connected with your heart, is that you can let go of old emotional energies and step into your empowered, authentic self in the here and now.

We will begin by connecting our bodies with the vital life-force of source energy and aligning our hearts to the deeper wisdom and healing of nature. Followed by healing dance practice where you get to discover the authentic dance of your heart. We will complete the evening with healing meditation. 

We dance to heal, we dance to express what words cannot, we dance to come home to ourselves, we dance to listen to the deeper call in our hearts, we dance to find the sacred connection with ourselves, each other and the earth.

This is a weekly healing movement meditation class to clear your mind, open your heart and center in your body. Come and experience it!

Raindrop Technique inspired Healing

Learn the art of healing touch and how to apply essential oils to the body for physical, emotional and spiritual healing. This will be a wonderful opportunity to awaken your healing energy, deepen your connection to the sacredness of your body and learn how to give and receive!

This workshop is intended to ignite the healing power of your listening touch and presence while teaching you how to apply therapeutic grade essential oils onto the body for deep physical, emotional and spiritual healing. For true healing to occur the depth of our inner connection and listening is equally important to the healing technique. We bring to you the balance of cultivating your inner healing capacity while learning an effective healing technique.

The Raindrop Technique (RT) was developed by Gary Young, ND and a Lakota medicine man more than two decades ago. It uses a sequence of nine highly immune enhancing essential oils. RT is a powerful, non-invasive tool to correct and heal defects in the curvature of the spine. We use RT in conjunction with our approach to integrative bodywork to create deep healing and transformation.

This workshop is open to anyone without any previous experience needed. Our method of integrative bodywork can be a wonderful healing way of practicing giving and receiving with your loved one and your friends. And it can be a powerful tool to use with your clients to access deeper levels of healing.

We continue to be inspired by the healing powers of plants, herbal medicines and essential oils in conjunction to the healing power of an open heart.

In this workshop you will learn...
·      About the nine primary therapeutic essential oils used in RT
·      How to use additional essential oils in RT to deepen the physical and emotional healing
·      Integrative bodywork techniques to balance your body structurally and energetically
·      Listening techniques for cultivating your intuitive knowing of where touch is needed
·      Attunement techniques to better sense your recipient's emotional field

Awakening your Sacred Feminine: New Moon Women Circle

Enter this holy place
called your body
bow to your barefeet
and let yourself be moved
by the feeling in your heart
there is a silent wisdom

hidden in the stories of your life:
your grief and your joy,
your disappointments and your hope reborn

Are the fabric of your belonging
To this world
So take them close in
And let them open you
Into deeper love inside of you
That love that knows
Your true inheritance
The wild beauty inside you
That breathes you awake


New Moon invites us to honor the sacredness of our body and our feminine spirit. This is a powerful time to connect with what is essential to us and to clarify our heart intentions.

In this evening we will enter a deeper conversation of our hearts that is vital and alive, and that opens us into a deeper connection with our spiritual powers as women.

The space of deep listening and safety we co-create allows us to intimately meet our own heart and share from our empowered, free and essential self.

Simple yet profound practices of presence connect us to the living wisdom of our bodies and hearts and teach us how to draw guidance for our lives from our inner connection.

I am looking forward to being with you in the sacred healing space!

At the Heart of Intimacy

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult task of all..., the work for which all other work is but preparation. It is a high inducement to the individual to ripen... a great exacting claim upon us, something that chooses us out and calls us to vast things.  ~Rainer Maria Rilke


Do you long to experience deeper closeness, joy and love with your partner?

True intimacy arises in the meeting of hearts that are undefended and open. Through a cultivation of a stronger emotional attunement, presence  and undefended listening, partners can experience true closeness again and receive the gift of love that brought them together. 

In this half-day embodied exploration we will dive into the matters of the heart. We will help you transform the unhealthy and conflicting ways of engaging into a heart nourishing connection. We will share with you meditations, somatic inquiries and practical ways to bring more sacredness into your own relationship.

This workshop is meant to bring new purpose and aliveness to your partnership and to uncover more joyful and loving ways of co-creating a more harmonious life together.

We wholeheartedly invite you to join us and give yourself the gift of true love!

The Art of Healing your Life

IMG_1163 - Version 4.jpeg

You are meant to thrive and feel happy, free and alive!


The essence of healing lies in our heart. Once our heart opens and becomes fully available to ourselves and life itself, we experience a profound shift in our well-being and healing process.

In our sessions we utilize the healing practices of somato-emotional inquiry, healing meditations, Ren Xue and Yuan Gong Qigong to unblock stagnant qi in every part of your body and open your heart from the inside out. In this process we shift the self-limiting patterns of your consciousness into a new vision that is fully honoring your essence and full potential.

By cultivating deep relaxation and openness within, you enter into a deeper dialog with your heart and somatically reshape your beliefs and self-perceptions from deep within yourtissues. Once your inner mind fully opens into a state of true possibility, your life begins to heal and change into a truly joyous and miraculous experience.

Join us on this deep journey home to yourself!

Embodied Feminine Wisdom

This is an invitation for every woman to come home to herself and to nourish her essence.

In this workshop we will dialog with our bodies in a deep essential way through movement, breath and expression. We will tend to the heart, honor its living dream and set an intention. We will meet ourselves and each other in a deep meaningful way to inspire our authentic self to be free and alive.

We will open our bodies, revive our heart’s vital energy, clear old energies of grievance or trauma, while re-kindling our wild feminine spirit and the radiant woman within. 

There is a deep well of power, love and intuitive knowing in a woman’s body, often untapped and forgotten through conditioning. Her body is every woman’s direct connection to the source, to the earth’s healing energies and to her inherent creative power. It is a catalyst into the primordial feminine remembering where profound healing and transformation are possible.

Through the healing practices we will engage in we will enter a deeper conversation of our hearts that is vital and alive, and that opens us into deeper connection with our spiritual powers as women.

I envision you blossoming and looking forward to sharing this journey with you!

From the heart, Sasha

A Course in Joyous Transformation

 

Reshaping your limiting patterns and perceptions into fulfilling and thriving living

The essence of healing lies in our heart. Once our heart opens and becomes fully available to life again, we experience a profound shift in our well-being and our healing process.

In Joyous Transformation classes we utilize the healing practices of Yuan Gong Qi Gong, Psycho-Somatic Inquiry, Heart Meditations and Abdominal Unwinding Breathwork to unblock stagnant Qi in every part of your body and open your heart into itself again. In the process we shift the self-limiting patterns of your consciousness into a new vision that is fully honoring your essence and your full potential.

By cultivating a deeper relaxation and openness within yourself, you are able to enter into a deeper dialog with your heart and somatically reshape your beliefs and self-perceptions from deep within your tissues and body structures. Once your inner mind fully opens into a state of true possibility your life can begin to heal and change into a more joyous and fullfilling experience.

This is a process of shedding of our old grievances from the past and reconnecting with total trust of life and with the life energy of our own being. As we begin to feel into our heart, we begin to unlock the held and frozen life energy that is vital for our well-being. The more we are willing to meet our heart with openness and gratitude, the more we become in touch with the healing power of our own heart.

As our life force returns back to us, we become more available to our life and are able to meet it with greater presence, wholeness and joy of being alive.

We truly hope you can join us,
Sasha and Hasso

When? This is a bi-monthly group on Sundays 10:30-1:30pm

Yuan Gong Qigong Bi-weekly Classes

The greatest promise of life is that you can heal. Yuan Gong teaches you how to gather Infinite Qi (Yuan Qi) to heal your body, mind and spirit and to cultivate inner resources to transform your life.
 

Yuan Gong Qigong is an ancient Qi cultivation system that focuses on promoting health, preventing disease and developing consciousness. It involves effective and easy to learn techniques that use the power of Qi and consciousness to create profound healing effects. Simple yet comprehensive methods are designed to open the energy pathways of your body and restore your total health and vitality.

The main focus of these practices is to align the mind with a consciousness of total health by synchronizing the body with the movement of Qi. Once your mind is fully aligned with your body, Qi can do its healing work. Your body regenerates; your mind becomes clear and peaceful; and, your heart opens.  

WHAT RESULTS CAN YOU EXPECT?

In Qi Healing Therapy, every health problem or symptom is due to one of three unhealthy conditions of Qi: blocked Qi, deficient Qi or disturbed Qi. Thus, practically any condition can be treated with this therapy.

  • On a physical level, Yuan Gong can be applied to any acute and chronic pain conditions, organ malfunction, muscle tension, nervous system imbalances, chronic tiredness, to name just a few. 
  • On a mental level, the practice cultivates an inner state of calmness, peace and centeredness, while reconnecting you with your inner strength.
  • On an emotional level, it opens your heart into a deeper capacity for love.
  • On a spiritual level, it supports you in changing your core patterns and cultivating a deeper awareness for yourself and your environment. Yuan Gong is Spirituality in action!
     

WHAT CAN YOU GAIN FROM A HALF-HOUR PRACTICE?

  • More life energy and better health
  • learer thinking and improved mental balance
  • Better body alignment, strength and stamina
  • Greater efficiency in carrying out your daily tasks 
  • Deeper emotional balance with a true experience of joy
  • Expanded sense of peace and contentment  

WHAT IS THE DEEPER INVITATION OF YUAN GONG QIGONG?

Yuan Gong can truly change your life. What makes it transformational on all levels is that it helps you cultivate the Five Essential Qualities: trust, openness, love, gratitude and gongjing (respect and humility). As you practice Yuan Gong daily, you cultivate both Qi and your connection with these five essential qualities. As your practice continues to deepen and ripen, your life opens to radical change.

We are offering bi-weekly classes:
Tuesday mornings 9am-10am and Thursday afternoon 5:15pm-6:15pm
Contribution: $85 per month, $18 drop-in
