You and
Life Energy 

Questions from the daily life

As Shiatsu therapist, I am committed to experiencing the Yin and the Yang Energy, questioning my female and male inner sides, going through fasting or a feast, enjoying a hard rock concert or an opera, relaxing in cold water or in a sauna…

Questioning and researching my needs, perceptions and intentions, has deepen my knowfledge and understand the Life Energy (Ki).

This also includes accepting that I cannot or do not want to experiment with all kinds of Ki experiences.

Nature is so abundant, wonderful, vast and unpredictable. This Abundance give us an incredible amount of knowledge. To feel them out again and again is testing and is training our defenses. This has brought me to respect my body and explore the life again and again.

Home meditation (March 2020)

We find ourselves having to share everyday life in this unprecedented and uncertain period with the Corona Virus. Since this should remain with us for several weeks, we have to adapt to the current situation.
From the Micro point of view, I consider my body as HOME, which, under the skin, has a vast Macro aspect that I trust and nourish with all my actions. From the Macro point of view, I consider everything around me, everything that is at hand, that my body constantly receives as Micro information.

Critical and judgmental mind (November 2018)

While focusing on feeling my body without judging or criticizing, I was trusting its intelligence and opening my senses. Feeling the beating heart, the movement of my lungs without understanding how my body REALLY works.
Following its signals and trying to read between the lines of my skin, my fat, my muscles, my bones and my cells. This without letting myself be influenced by others’ opinions: after all, who knows my body better than I do? We’ve been together for more than 45 years, haven’t we?

No Fear, no party (January 2018)

Let the inspiration be led by the emotions so, after having meditated on that, I realized that Fear and Risk played an essential role.
While swimming in that muddy river in Ecuador, during an endless moment, I was stuck, blocked from fear, and I could not savour the intense joy, the smells, the sensations of my body, the colours, the sounds, the beating of my heart and my breath. For a moment I was not present in this intense and special moment full of courage and vulnerability!
After being reconciled with all these feelings and sensations, I realized two facts:…

Looking for the confirmation
(April 2017)

We start from the fact that our brain has to select between all the information it receives from our senses, whether this information come: from the inside, for exemple from the PH blood receptors, or from the outside, for example the tactile sense.
Every interaction causes a Rhythm that becomes the engine of our actions…
