FLOW WITH THE SLOW – INTENSIVE RELAXATION TECHNIQUE INTENSIVE
For the first time ever in the UK, Barefoot will teach the ancient Taoist system of micro-motion, the ability to send deep relaxation and healing to any part of the body or mind, for self-healing or healing others. This is based on the inner dance of Tai Chi and will afford you direct access at any time to the deepest, most powerful level of your being. It requires no former training and is eminently suitable for novices and masters alike. It can be especially useful for people suffering from debilitating illness, low energy, pain, emotional upset, anxiety, extreme impatience or depression. This will give you power over your own autonomic system.
