Heather’s 2021 Gentling Way actual hands on Teaching Schedule


Strange times . .. out of a job? Want to help yourself and those around you?
Know you can’t go to medical profession/will they even be able to do that ‘elective’ surgery now? Perhaps we get to help ourselves.  . We have a month . .Then I am in Far North Qld.

  • Need a bonded women’s group /a tribe of like minded people who help others?
  • Need a touch up yourself?
  • Want to know what you can be doing to assist others in their own journeys?

Are you an acupuncturist? Want to make your life simpler? Practice/clinic also  ..? Triage . . . take out what is blocking healing – as bodies are designed to heal themselves. This video was filmed when the world was so naive – Jan 2018 was this first one..


This is hands on – fingers and feelings

What is on offer? – Some will be online (Stacks of videos/workshops – how to step you through . .

Option NOW – 2 weekends in actual workshops – at least ONE in Gympie.


The entire online and hands-on I have developed over the past 40+ years in practice. Take the plunge!

All of this work works . .
I lead you through the multi modality challenges and out into life again – Lived Well.

All have a massive emotional component – we go into spiritual healing and how to relieve suffering caught up on the physical and other layers we hold as ‘self’ – above – me demonstrating cuddle/release.

Reconnecting Heart and Wombspace( CLICK)?

Come out confident of your ability to untangle tension related belly aches.

  • Assisting bellies to work well. (Leaky  gut? Belly ache/GERD/ulcers/etc?)
  • Plus fascial releases, muscle separation/connective tissue distress/diastasis and gyne/pelvic issues – with 2021 option of the  ‘sharp pricklies’ . .

Living Ligaments (CLICK)?

Named as we are here by virtue of the flexibility and suppleness of not only the muscles and ligaments – but our life force. We are living and as we feel/hold on – we stop Qi and life flows.  Let us discover and untangle ourselves FIRST – so that we are clearer to assist others.

Wanted to learn belly/Maya healing?
Here it is –  a wise woman’s version of what works here in this now.  . and in these times CLICK) . .

We untangle –  why the centre – our womb/prostate – is not holding true. Undo whatever has stopped the optimal flows is uncovered. Assisted away – release. Leaving a space within – to flow as designed – all neck/structural and especially lumbar and pelvic twists righted. All through caring deeply for deeply held trauma – we Let It Go!!

Start here (CLICK)

Soon I will put this up as an online course – to be led by one of my Gentling Way graduate teachers.

Living Ligaments I – realigning womb

Living Ligaments II – advanced – prolapses – to prostates

Living Ligaments III – Opening the Baby Gates – all male & female reproductive/maternal ease

Qi flows – this is not just a bunch of moves

We can be soul/body aligners. We can aspire to what is possible. Clear ourselves. First.

This work is not for everyone . .
We work hands-on, heartfully and are moving blockages.

Real change is possible – and are expected. ‘Miracles’ happen often.

  • Problem – increasingly people are not able to support their life well.
  • Gut upsets . . .(Damp resolving). We work very gently.
  • Why? Body is in disarray.
  • Pain – stagnations, obstructions, distress – is always present.  .

These are always small/experiential classes

We need to work on self – FIRST – all of us.

  • Offering – a way out of going around in circles
  • HOW? We start at the core and work outwards.

WARNING . .  .

We are undoing life residue . .

Always intimate classes as we move ‘stuck’ in ourselves FIRST.  This is experiential always – hands-on.

As one recent participant said . . .

‘This Gentling Way Self Care weekend was a slow awakening… in that in ways for me some of the healing and understanding came in the days after as well, noticing the growth of my knowledge in talking to others (not exactly about what I learnt, but leaning into what I learnt). I gained a better understanding of our body’s centre – something which I had not learnt in all my years of studying. And the concept of holding space for someone. I hadn’t heard of that term before, realising now that it is something I do quite often for people.

I felt the excitement of a ‘tool’ I had been looking for, for so many years. I knew I needed a physical modality, the addition of touch in my work, I just didn’t know which one till I saw it. And knowing Heather for over 7 years, I have ultimate trust in her heart. As I read the trainings and came into the weekend, I saw my future. I found a tribe as I walked in, and felt at home immediately with the women who were there….. This is not normal for me….. Even when I was studying naturopathy course I did not feel as comfortable as this. There I had to push myself beyond a comfort to create friends. I have always had to “mindfully” push myself into talking with others & making friends – feeling awkward and marching forward regardless. It makes sense that I would align on the heart level so strongly, we came to learn of the same things.

I walked into this room of women and immediately felt at home, at ease – no awkwardness, no fear.  The stories….. I felt like a little girl at the feet of her grandmother, a student at the feet of her master, ‘wise woman’, ‘medicine woman’… I felt on path. We learn by stories, by experiences, by other’s trials & errors before making our own. A seed has been planted in me this weekend. I look forward to watching it grow’. Melissa Brisbane

Getting Started :
Selfing weekend (Online 26-27th Oct)

Whilst you can only do the Reconnecting Bao and Dai Mai ($595)
Much more than the physical moves are being offered.
As an entire package – we have you being undone and remade and all you do in clinic – rewired for immediate and interactive action.

Transforming you

Your practice and others you touch. The Transformative Healing package may look as though it is for acupuncturists BUT all acupuncturists need to be retrained into my Moving Blockages model.
The Gentling Way as well – thus regardless of what your background, this work is inclusive. You may choose not to use needles BUT you will still need to know how and why the channels and the flows are not working – and how to fix this – may/may not involve needles – but always hands, tools (cups/moxa and more) , always with intention.

Payment – can be on a payment plan – the deposit ($500) gets you the instant start online courses.

Email me for course download – if you go via my major sites you get to pay in US $.
If in NZ/Australia – Aust $$

1 – Bank transfer Suncorp 484 799

If you have been in one of the Reconnecting classes – sign up for the Gentling Trauma Relief/Self Discovery packs – as the ‘stuff’ that is holding the ligaments in position is also stopping their being let go therapeutically.

Where does this lead?

Q and A – after the L.L.I. training (CLICK)

Where you can permanently alter the odd womb positions and undo adhesions – free twisted pelvises.

How? We gently undo why the body has been up until now – unable to untangle itself.

Part 2 – Gentling:Self Discovery (online) – includes previously presented Self Discovery

Undo what holds the body hostage.

Will be more as the graduates consolidate their practice.

If you are just beginning . . immersion . .

This is stepping up massively.

A new modality

Intention of the Living Ligaments work – return the womb back where she lives .. . All ligaments attach there – and as the middle of Dai Mai . . she is attacked by all that is not right or flowing.







As the centre of woman’s beingness. .

She needs to be happy . . .

Declutter – Reset – Restore.

Incorporating many more traditional women’s ways of knowing

We are bound here embodied.

Our centre is our womb.

Does she/has she felt safe?

What this work is based around – our womb

Releasing womb woes

Structure Determines Function
