DHN Members Workshops #02

Zero Balancing 5-day workshop in Oxford
25th – 29th November 2011 with
Tim Newman and Sarah Stewart-Brown

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a deeply relaxing form of bodywork that engages the energy of bone. Developed in the US by Dr Fritz Smith, it is a form of structural acupressure which aims to harmonize the body’s energy and disperse accumulated stress or compensation patterns in the skeletal system. People receiving ZB report feeling reconnected to themselves, often experiencing a sense of calm and equanimity associated with deep meditation. They may experience release of long held term emotional or physical tension.

The primary indication for ZB is the pursuit of well being. It is a non-diagnostic practice aiming to support the whole person by balancing distortions in the flow and integrity of energy through the skeleton.

Zero Balancing is performed fully clothed and a session normally lasts 30 minutes, but can be anything from 15 to 45 minutes long.

This workshop is designed to teach you the skills needed to give a full Zero Balancing session It counts as one of the four workshops required as part of the Certification Programme in Zero Balancing. It will run from 9.30-5.30 over five days.

For more details on Zero Balancing please click here to see Sarah's article on this website or click here to go to the Zero Balancing UK website.

DHN Members Workshops #05

CPD Two Workshops, One Weekend with Dawn Redwood

27th/28th February 2010

DHN Members Workshops #06

CPD – Certificate of Attendance

Saturday 27th February, 2010 10am - 4pm

Fremington Parish Hall
Higher Road
Fremington EX31 3BG

COST: 50 or 80 if booking for Saturday and Sunday

The experiential workshop of this sensitive subject will overview the main stages of the cancer journey from an energetic aspect and look at ways healing can be incorporated in a practical manner. We will explore self-help techniques (relaxation, use of imagery and meditation). While the focus is the patient, we do look at ways carers and relatives may also be able to contribute, and perhaps may be able to benefit themselves.

"Very early on in my practice I learned how to adopt a straightforward approach to the self-help tools which would match the energy of the patient I was working with. This workshop is suitable for healers / energy workers (student/full members) who may or may not have had a lot of experience.

As well as my own practice I have also worked in GP surgeries, as well as practising reflexology. Many of my patients presented with cancer in the early days and I learnt much from them. As a result I now share this CPD session. I have worked at the Bristol Cancer Help Centre since 2002 (now renamed Penny Brohn Cancer Care) and also in hospices."

CPD – Certificate of Attendance

Sunday 28 February 2010, 10am-4pm

Fremington Parish Hall
Higher Road
Fremington EX31 3BG

Cost: 50 or 80 if booking for Saturday and Sunday

This experiential workshop looks at the healer’s role from a practical perspective, an ‘energetic’ point of view, the process taking place and how the ‘the healer’ fits in. Suitable for students and healers with relevant experience and other healthcare/complementary practitioners who have some relevant background.

"Over the past 13 years I have been a full-time healer during which time I have been presented with a steep learning curve in my practice from private patients and also in my work at nursing homes and hospices. My approach is practical and straightforward and respects the fact that healing is a part of everyone and our experiences here. This workshop aims to integrate this concept in a very practical manner."
