Bienvenidos and Welcome to the idea that we can be the Masters of our own Health through connecting, observing and understanding the well being of our own core; the Abdomen, also known as our ‘second brain’. The abdomen is both very powerful and vulnerable at the same time, it is also the very epicentre of our reproduction, digestion, toxin elimination and so much more.
At The Core Of A Healthy Body
When we consider the ancient practices of yoga, and martial arts we see the consistent focus on the health of our centre and the power and vitality we can hold and sustain in this amazing part of our beings. Our abdomen is the first stop when addressing most health issues, and is also where with proper understanding and care can be a doorway to both prevention and cure to a list of increasing problems in modern culture.
The Emotional Epicentre
'THE WOMB WITHIN THE WOMAN'
No matter how strong the denial or how often we have turned away, our female bodies have not forgotten their functions. Our bodies are hard wired with this deep knowing, and will call us back to reclaim the feminine for ourselves, in our own particular and specific way. And often it is our suffering in these especially female areas- menstruation, sexuality, abortion, miscarriage, birth, mothering, menopause, for example that sets us on the path to healing our inner feminine. Our female bodies need us , now more than ever, and that we too need the wisdom, the wildness, the passion, the joy, the vitality, and the authenticity that we gain through this most intimate of reconciliations.
