Presence, Vulnerability, Boundaries: The Art of Cultivating Compassion

4 CE hours

Laying the groundwork for an active practice in oncology massage, working with people who are dying, or who are grappling with serious medical concerns calls for practitioners to develop a skillset not normally taught in the massage school or CE curriculum.  

This workshop is an introduction to the foundational scope of the how-to. Developing and maintaining presence and compassion in our work with clients, patients and colleagues can sometimes be challenging with so much information demanding our attention all the time. Through the use of powerful practices and techniques, Geri will take you through:

What we mean when we ask that we, as massage therapists,

FIRST, DO NO HARM?  

How do we “Hold the space sacred?”  

Is there a difference between, fixing an ache and serving the patient/client? 

Where does our compassion originate?  

When is our own vulnerability an asset? A hindrance?

These and other questions will be addressed through actual stories, discussion, exercises, hands on work, reflection and meditation.  Come join Geri as she takes you through her daily routine and hands-on practices she uses with clients facing difficult and trying medical and physical challenges.

Attendees of this session will receive 4 Contact CE Hours which meet the OBMT requirement in Ethics, Communication, and Boundaries for license renewal.
