Her eyes are closed and her breathing is deep and calm. As the Bio-energy practitioner works on her, the woman feels her body begin to sway.
It's a strange sensation. She's learning to trust her developing ability to let go and allow the energy to move her forward and back in a rhythm not of her making.
Her feet sense and absorb the changing energy and keep her stable. Her breathing remains even and slow.
The hairs on her arms move with the electric yet soothing sensation of energy being moved around her.
That woman is me. I'm taking Michael D'Alton's Bio-Energy Healing class, Level II. We've just completed our second weekend of training.
We practise our new skills on each other, and every time I give or receive a session I sense the subtle movement of energy more.
The potential of this work to heal the body and emotions is simply amazing. I look forward to our next training session in mid-July.
