Earth my Body – Fire my Spirit

Oceanic Bodywork® Fire & Earth – Introduction and Training part 1

29 March – 2 April 2018

Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of the body, accompanied by the rhythmic heartbeat in the loving atmosphere of healing hands. Allow yourself to massage and be touched with scented oil. A beautiful way to relax and enjoy your body.

Oceanic Bodywork® Fire & Earth is a unique synthesis of bodywork which combines elements of massage, dance, singing and energywork together with plant wisdom in a unique way. A bodywork that gives stability and good grounding, joy and serenity. It is inspired by the spiritual master Osho and his insights about the connection between body mind and soul, by Kahuna Abraham and the traditional Hawaiian temple massage, through the indigenous way of being of the first nations and the natural forces.

Oceanic Bodywork® was developed by Nirvano. She enjoys to combine dance from various cultures, rhythmic movement, as well as dynamic and quiet live music, singing and silence together with deep tissue massage, soft touch and Energywork.Years of experience, gained in the Osho Buddhafield, seminars and trainings as well as intensive studies with indigenous people have contributed to this development.

One of the core pieces of Oceanic Bodywork ®Fire & Earth is Hawaiian Bodywork. The origin of this beautiful and powerful art of massage comes from the ancient Hawaii, handed down by the Kahuna Abraham and the Hawaiian temple massage. Rebalancing® Bodywork techniques and joint release, energy work of various directions, newly developed massage techniques, as well as herbal treatments are combined with Hawaiian bodywork and is giving the Oceanic Bodywork® Fire and Earth a holistic approach.

Oceanic Bodywork ® Fire and Earth combines long flowing massage strokes with hands and upper arms followed by deep tissue massage, gentle joint release, dynamic energy work and the use of hot volcanic stones. Oceanic Bodywork® Fire & Earth is a full body massage by one or two people combined with a breathing technique which supports the intuitive part of the giver.

The bodyworker is invited to dance around the massage table with drumming and soft music, staying with the receiving partner in physical contact.The combination of massage, breathing and dancing, as well as the accompanying music and songs can open the receiving person for deep memories from the original state of being towards the oneness with nature which allows a state of deep mental and physical relaxation.

Oceanic Bodywork® Fire and Earth is a journey from the primal forces of nature through your body to the heart. Immerse yourself in the weightless space where silence sings.
