Heather’s Gentling Way – Part 1 – Brisbane REPEAT

Reconnecting Bao and Dai Mai (heart and wombspace)

Foundational Moves – clearing Qi/lymph and Blood Stagnation

Objective

To allow the Qi to flow through a body unimpeded

Event description An interactive experiential practical workshop supporting the Three Heaters by clearing their stagnations. From removing shock/trauma from Bao Mai that may have created disconnection to the lower heaters, we move onto the more solid representations of life.

Using the 8 Extra meridian theory of storage of perverse Qi, we discover ways to correct all TH issues – be they ‘leaky gut’/GERD/IBS/Krohn’s – by unblocking why there is lymph and Qi congestion. (Reminder – the role of the 8 Extras – to regulate maintain and supervise the 12 main. – and to keep out of circulation till able to process that which is ‘too hard’). We let it let go . . .

We become aware of what needs to shift to release what has been stored trapped in the 8 Extras – esp the spine and nervous system. Shen shock/body trauma. Cold is covered in the pre course online work – and SCARS we do day 2.

Day 1 – Structure determines function. After constructing a safe space, we romp through the belly to liberate the lymph and damp that lead to digestive dramas.
We reposition viscera and what holds it hostage . . so gut function can support easy living.
Day 2 – undoing a Stuck Belly Blood and all sequelae of C sections and another abdominal surgeries/interventions.
Freeing all sacral and pelvic tensions to allow easy birthing.

Brisbane TBA

Sydney 25/26th Ocotober

What will we be covering?

  1. Gain a clear understanding of the body’s energy and solid flows.
  2. (5 Flows – especially lymph).
  3. – Discover what blocks life force. (8 Extras reservoir theory)
  4. – Including – Poly Vagal Theory, Reichian armour bands, Accident Recall
  5. – Rework the entire Three Heater theory into practical hands-on repair of visceral displacement, vacuity (diastasis/prolapses) and leaky gut (Ileo-cecal value correction.)
  6. – Experience different levels of releasing what is caught up as life residue/scars
  7. – Practice gently relieving body resistance, allowing the clearing what has up till now prevented true healing

This 2-day introduction into Heather’s Gentling Ways takes you (the interested aware, conscious body worker/midwife/acupuncturist – who also is also in a body/life in need of healing) into releasing what holds the Qi, and thus healing hostage. More on this here.

A recent participant said – ‘an easy simple way to gauge and clear what is stopping healing naturally’. Aprll – Upwey.

‘She came in with a stepladder sacrum and got off the table with a slide’ (Massive shifts after the accidents and life lived – Rachael – Sydney.

How is this possible?

We undo blockages to flows – anyone can – is essential the foundation work we missed in going straight to needles. Check in with the body first – can it do what you are asking of it?


We start with US ..

Embodied .
In a women’s yarning circle . .

We may discover stored away shock/life trauma and deep wounds that block usual means. We work extensively with scars. These hold keys to the chronic ‘bread and butter’ issues we may play with. This class highlights the simplicity of allowing Qi to flow again. We work with breath, wise women’s ways – previously only taught orally and across so many cultures. We delve into instant ways to magic the stuckness away for good. Gently – with our hands (and sometimes needles).

Via an acupuncturists’ romp through the structure: what binds it up into knotted tangles, and onto how to unwind these.  This is an interactive responsive holistic individualised energy themed soulful inspired body work. Based on all the styles I have been exposed to, and have developed further in my quest for answers when the obvious seems to NOT WORK. We release bodily held life residue. Especially scar distress, adhesions and the consequences of being opened up – whether to birth or to ‘fix’ something – invariably we are ‘not the same since . . .’


Who for?

Anyone – who seek simple answers for complex problems

Also acupuncturists/body workers/midwives/health care professionals  who wish to advance their clinical skills into releasing deeply held perverse Qi. And or Maya healers and others who have ‘done’ belly/ body work – as this has nothing and yet everything in common with this.

Event description An interactive experiential practical workshop supporting the Three Heaters by clearing their stagnations. From removing shock/trauma from Bao Mai that may have created disconnection to the lower heaters, we move onto the more solid representations of life.

Using the 8 Extra meridian theory of storage of perverse Qi, we discover ways to unblock lymph and Qi congestion, alleviate visceral displacement, correct diastasis, discover and gently correct uterine mal-positioning, also breaking adhesions and resolving scars. Advanced Channel Applications – Gua Sha, cups, needling and hand work feature, utilising past elder wisdoms.

When nothing else has worked – when we want to refer out as we feel lost – now – using these foundational moves – anything is possible – you will come away personally transformed as this simple work begins a new life for all.

We uncover and heal stored away shock/life trauma and deep wounds that block usual means. Gently – with our hands and sometimes needles. We work extensively with scars.

We work with breath, wise women’s ways – previously only taught orally and across so many cultures. We delve into instant ways to magic the stuckness away for good.


What will we be covering?

Practical Channel Applications – going where blockages/congestion have created inner Feng Shu disruption – returning all to homeostasis and granting the body sovereignty again. Using Gua Sha, cups, needling, hand work – utilizing traditional elder wisdoms.
Clearing self – and creating a safe space for all that will release to be able to – with grace.
(How to stay safe and keep a space safe as we work undoing what has held a body/soul hostage).
 
Vibrational tools and all that I have found to be of service in my decades of researching what and when to intervene.
Undoing Stuck Belly Blood – Day Two we become more attuned to the consquences of life and how to free then uplift the Qi – allowing bodies free rein as they must have to optimally function.

Day OneTowards alignment back to Self.

Enhance optimal lymph flows – relieving Phlegm/Damp

We firstly set the container – so all are safe within.
This takes the form of many lineages and oral traditions. We apply channel theory, and knowledge of 8 Extra meridians in practical wise womanly (previously oral) traditions to effect major through very gentle shifts in balance.

Included – self help – healing power of self soothing.

Structure determines function – Three Heater visceral corrective moves, the beginnings of uterine repositioning, sacral and coccygeal corrections to allow Du Mai and the other 7 Extras to flow as intended.

Day Two Undoing Life Residue

From stored Shock/trauma to effectively needling scars – especially the pubic /lower heater to invigorate the entire being – Reconnecting Bao and Dai Mai in the process . .

Stuck Belly Blood/Undoing Energy patterns and how to reposition soft tissue – all with heartful hands-on energy applications. The acupuncture sets us free to complete the session. Missing links – touch – frees the Qi.

Why C section?
It sticks around, over giving – adhesions and general woe. ..

As with all my work – three parts
Before content to get us all ‘on same page’
Actual attendance – experiential
Home nurture

This is a guide as (who knows what will come up?)

It Depends . .

Anyone can do this . .
All we are doing is taking out blockages to life flows

Another acupuncturist said:
Having done the Reconnecting Dai Mai workshop with Heather, I can say that I have actually applied pretty much everything I learnt straight into practice and have really loved the results I am getting. Now I see people through a new lens and am loving how the new knowledge and techniques is adding such depth to my practice. I am so excited to continue my training so I can learn more of Heather’s work, as I can see how what she does is so relevant to really making transformational change in the body’s and lives of so many of our clients. Tanya Banora Point, Australia

Online component – Healing Power of Touch

‘A lot of the power of our medicine seems to be getting lost in intellectual based information, techniques and theories.  We can often forget the basics of what it means to live as a healthy, integrated human being. We are embodied, and touch is vitally important.  Simple things like how we think, what we eat, and how we move, are often over looked. A lot of what is in this course I will share with my patients.  There are great graphics and posters which I can put out in my clinic and print off for patients as home work.  Working through the exercises myself, just while watching the course modules, I can feel the difference in my body.  More relaxed, more integrated, more flowing, and more joyful. 

Heather is humorous, caring and light hearted in the way she teaches. I sense I am reconnecting on the common sense wisdom of the elders.  My acupuncture schooling was barely hands on, believe it or not.  Mostly about theory and where to put the needle. But how to work with lymph, qi, emotion and feeling – those are missing link that Heather reintroduces”.   Cara, Canada


How did this come about?

Me asking why what I had been so good at not working as well over the decades as more complicated lives and less respect for nature so The Way of the Tao is almost a memory only. After 40 years being hands-on meridian therapist, embedded in my own maternity. designing acupuncture courses and seeking always for more – using whatever it takes to assist people move from their previously stuck spots. We now have an integrated Qi/Shen and lymph system – magicking away structural demons.. . Heather’s Gentling Ways

A fusion of Qi awareness, advanced channel applications, gentle belly and lymph, ligament and thus profound structural shifts – hands and heartful body interactions.

Past the dry needling debacle with every other modality taking over- let us go where they are/do not –

We need to have Qi flowing to be able to use it.

Actual adhesions and scars are actually blocking life flows.

When we clear the acute and inflexible emotional and etheric charges, the physical ‘behaves’ itself again.

Gyno visceral corrections – including unsticking adhesions!

A practical and intimate workshop. Only 8 spaces offered

In a small intimate space to undo all that ails YOU so you can be the healing channel you always wished to be

BRING – please courage – this is self mastery

BEFORE COMING . .  look through the online Pre Course 3 part introduction (even put it into use in clinic)


An acupuncturists’ romp through the structure, what binds it up in knotted tangles, into how to unwind these.

 Especially scar distress, adhesions and the consequences of being opened up – whether to birth or to ‘fix’ something – invariably we are ‘not the same since . . .’

Firstly . . . .

Return structural integrity . . . .

Diastasis  – poor connective tissue resilience (and after birth care)

LEFT – This is so often the view women have after birth.

Not always though.

RIGHT shows a young boy’s diastasis

From the foundational work from Reconnecting Bao and Dai, we go straight back to the source: regenerate the nerve and blood flows supporting life – realignment.


How do we do this?

We commence in offering more tools in being safe.

We investigate what is STUCK in all of us
This
takes you (the acupuncturist – who also as a body/life in need of healing) into releasing what holds the Qi, and thus healing hostage. More on this here.

We uncover and heal stored away shock/life trauma and deep wounds that block usual means. Gently – with our hands and sometimes needles. We work extensively with scars. These hold keys to the chronic ‘bread and butter’ issues we may play with. This class highlights the simplicity of allowing Qi to flow again. We work with breath, wise women’s ways – previously only taught orally and across so many cultures. We delve into instant ways to magic the stuckness away for good.

Goals – Clarity  . .

Gain a clear understanding of the body’s energy and solid flows.

(5 Flows – especially lymph).


Will the seminar cover more than just acupuncture?

   Yes

We move much from all of us

These are small, thus intimate workshops

After my recent foray into Arvigo and Mercier ways of belly/pelvic care – all the best added to all I was taught 40+ years ago (all visceral and soft tissue and lymph work in conjunction with acupuncture) and all I have developed since . . leading graduates of the entire programme (this i part 1 – into being Gentling Way practitioners.

For acupuncturists – surprisingly simple women’s ways of knowing

INCLUDING – much touch therapy plus adhesion breaking

Large focus of this weekend – C scars – however old – undoing what they leave behind.

Hands and hearts. Real shifts in visceral placement as we focus on repositioning the organs – gently allowing the blueprint to re-establish itself. Structure does determine function. We begin with our own bodies. We move onto the classmates. This is deep work. Courage is needed to move into where you can then assist patients.

Treatment suggestions include acupuncture using Heather’s Stuck Belly Blood ways after the shock/cold (and often scars) are liberated. By undoing the past injuries and energy blockages we then do not need to micromanage acupuncture points and play with pain – the reason it is there dissolves. Most usually permanently.


What to expect?

The unexpected

All attending say that they had no idea that such gentle touch – and such simple moves can have such a profound difference – to everything. Just moving a stomach out of the diaphragm – all inflammatory process stopped – instantly! Usually we have no idea what else we could feel like. Until the very gentle process of unwind happens. The Reichian armour bands can release. Body and soul permission lead to alignment – and great surprise!

People always say to me . .

“Too easy Heather!”
Yes it is .

Who is Heather Bruce?

As a classically trained acupuncture consultant, and naturally inclined body and energy worker Heather has been a pragmatic clinician, course designer and teacher in Brisbane Australia, and in her home country NZ since early 1979.

As a new mother at her training’s onset, she saw all acupuncture study through maternal eyes. Using hands and heart, she has always specialized in obstetrics and fertility, and in all ‘difficult’ cases. Extensively teaching all levels of acupuncture from a classical and a meridian basis she has developed her own style of Moving Blockages to Healing.

Heather is passionate about improving and sustaining Jing. Starting with family concerns – touching, and being bonded, as the primates that we are. Aided through the transmission of world wide wise womanly oral and hands -on traditions, she intends to bring back magic into practice for all.

Extending this to undoing the Life Residue, using 8 Extras and their function of storing perverse Qi, Heather now allows uses whatever means (via the Poly Vagal – trauma release – theory to liberate Reichian armour bands thus freeing all from what blocks Qi and thus Life Flows) to allow acupuncturists to access deeper than ever before.

More on Heather’s CV is found here.

This is part of a process – this is just the beginning

What you will come away with

Passion and a renewed zeal for playing with QI . .Results instantly transferable to you – anyone can!
