Mudita Rhythm and Rocking Seminar

When I left Moscow and moved to the UK I was advised to continue my training with the Mudita School in London, near Liverpool Street. In April I was able to do just that with the long awaited "Rhythm and Rocking" seminar. When I first met Ralf I immediately felt the warmth of his nature and the depth of his understanding. I had no doubt I wanted to follow his school and teaching.
Ralf is able to create an amazing atmosphere of mutual warmth and comfort, just the right mood to promote learning. During the practice we learned not only the techniques but also how to feel for each other with care and tenderness.
This style of dynamic Thai massage is practised by Ajahn Chaiyuth Pryasith in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. Ralf went to him for treatments and persuaded him to teach some of his methods. This is what he was sharing with us in April.
The huge quantity of techniques is extremely diverse, and were taught with a depth of understanding that allows us now to use our creativity based on the needs of the patient. The basic method seems to me to be remeniscent of swinging in the cradle, a motion which balances the energy of the body while it soothes and relaxes. It is both physically and emotionally liberating. It is as enjoyable to give this massage as to receive it, like a meditation in motion focused on the needs of the patient.
Thank you to everybody who attended, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you all for 5 days and a special thank you to Ralf for his generosity in sharing so much of his knowledge.
