On day 2 of the European Shiatsu Congress I went to the workshop of Gayaka Backheuer. He is a shiatsu teacher from the German ShenDo Shiatsu school. As an Osho-adapt it is no coincidence that this workshop is all about love. Unconditional love.
Eind september was ik te gast op het European Shiatsu Congress, het grootste shiatsu event in de Europese geschiedenis. Veel geleerd, veel gezien, contact gemaakt met andere benaderingen van shiatsu en aanverwanten. Een impressie van de workshops op de eerste dag.
Picture a huge conference room. A classic ambience with a wooden floor and 100 mats on it. On the mats are the participants of the European Shiatsu Congress. There is a man dressed in white at the front. Beside him sits a woman on a chair. I cannot see her face but her body posture suggests she is not the happiest human in the world. He asks her: “What do you feel?” She answers: “Sadness. Loneliness. Being unconnected”.
