WOMEN'S SELF LOVE CEREMONY | RELEASING TRAUMA + SHAME WITH OUR BODIES
Join Rehmat in reclaiming your relationship with your body with this powerful ceremony, based on the Ayurvedic practice of Abhyanga.
Time & Location
01 Nov, 18:30 – 20:30
Fire+Alchemy, 52 Great Eastern St, London EC2A 3EP, UK
About the event
The way we see ourselves deeply impacts every relationship + every endeavour in life. Often the shame we feel about our body isn't ours; it was put on us by another who judged our body or took away our body autonomy - usually in childhood - and we took those beliefs on as if they were our own.
What to expect
In this Self Love Ceremony, we get to release all of the patterns and beliefs we've held about our bodies, and build a more loving, nurturing + stronger relationship with them.
Abhyanga is an ancient self massage practice from the Indian subcontinent, and together with the healing powers of intention, vulnerability, meditation and affirmation, we'll massage a special blend of oils into the skin whilst we rebirth a new relationship with our body.
Rehmat, The Trauma Alchemist, is a trauma-informed somatic + energy healing practitioner, and will be guiding this ceremony.
What to wear
Wear loose clothing that you don't mind getting oil on; there will be an invitation to roll up sleeves and trousers to massage legs and arms.
