Urban Forest Bathing

Feldenkrais Method® Group classes and specialized workshops blending somatic movement and the healing of essential oils.

 "The Book of Anointing is a spiritual journey into the rebellious art of sacred anointing. This art has been with us for thousands of years and has touched the hearts, minds, and souls of humanity. The anointers of the ancient world were wisdom-keepers and knew the power of essential oils to consecrate, heal and awaken the soul. Cynthia Oliver’s book brings you into the sacred art of anointing as an Act of Love in the modern world, fine tuning the connection with your divine self and the devic world of Mother Nature."

As an student of Cynthia Olivera and a practicing anointer and wisdom-keeper, 

Kachina will be teaching from The Book of Anointing and sharing the wisdom, daily practices and sacred rituals of anointing using the blessed frequencies of the Wisdom of the Earth medicinal plant & tree essences.

If you are you ready to pause, recalibrate & recirculate your energies from outflow to inflow and inspire meaningful, committed change in your self nourishing practices join Kachina on one or all 3 of these Sacred Anointing events.

Awareness Through Movement® 

Sacred Anointing for Radical Self-Care

Weekly ATM® Classes
at the Dallas Yoga Center

4525 Lemmon Ave. Suite 305

Dallas, TX 75219

Saturdays from 10:45- 12:00

Each Month there will be a new theme based on classic Feldenkrais Movement Sequences overlaid with Foundations in Embodied Anatomy from the Body Mind Centering perspective.

Shinrin-yoku is the Japanese word for the concept of “forest bathing”. It is the practice of spending time in nature to restore and heal our body/mind/spirit. The gifts from the natural world that create this healing environment are many, the air quality, the light, the sounds and smells and the feel of Earth under our feet.  By being in the living presence of the plant kingdom, whether forest or garden, our senses are engaged, our attention is gently captured and we are subtly bathed with a fine mist of health-giving wood or garden essential oils, Shinrin-yoku.
In this Urban environment, as city dwellers we will generate the atmosphere of “Forest Bathing” by inviting in the alchemists of the Plant Kingdom who take light from the sun and stars to gift us with their life essence as food & medicine. When we anoint with a plant’s essential essences (essential oils) we take its particular chemical elixir of light, air, water and earth into our bodies. These higher vibrations also fill our auras to uplift, balance, center, open, strengthen or protect us according to our needs. They carry us from discord to resonance.
