Presence of Being with Shantam in Denmark
June 8th – 13th 2021

Prerequisite Possibilites: Fluid Presence™ Foundation, Watsu®, WaterDance™, Healing Dance, WaterBreath Way Weekend, Mentoring or Instructor permission. Presence of Being™ Intake Form is required.

Presence of Being™ is a warm-water therapy course in which we explore the water’s magical way of providing a nurturing environment for Self-discovery. Using the gentle quality of the warm water as the medium and our willingness to be Present as the catalyst, we will discover what happens when we are devoted to truly being with ourselves. In fully allowing rather than resisting what is, and offering unconditional acceptance to whatever reveals itself we discover a vast well-spring of peace within. This embodied recognition then naturally becomes a compassionate invitation that we extend to others.
On the part of the provider, this requires a repeated willingness to meet our own edges, to become aware of whatever belief systems are in place for us and to discover what motivates us as therapists. In Presence of Being™ we stabilize our orientation as pure awareness and remember our fluency as a sensorial perceptual Being. Through experiential investigation with loving kindness and sensitivity we welcome all aspects of ourselves and honor the innocence behind our coping mechanisms. We thus liberate where we have become fixated to a conceptual map over a perceptual map. We entrain to the warm water environment as an invitation to explore our essential nature and to discover the inherent Grace that reveals itself when we meet each other there.
Whether you are relatively new to warm water therapy or have been practicing for years, this course is meant to assist you in deepening your connection with Self and others.
To support the exploration of what happens when we focus awareness without agenda we may employ:
• The Healing Power of Unconditional Presence
• Self Inquiry & Meditation
• The Art of Conscious Touch & Breath Connection
• Establishing Rapport
• Equanimous Communication Skills
• Ethics of Warm-Water Holistic Therapy
• Becoming an Extension of the Water
• Awareness Exercises
• Embodied “Neutral”
• Breath as the Portal to Presence
Those whom are already Aquatic Bodyworkers can expect to expand the scope of their practice. Generally, participants attend Presence of Being™ to reconnect with the lived experience and wonder of being present with themselves, others and Life.
For current practitioners, this course can also be ideal to explore
• Recurring intimacy issues which would like to be investigated in a safe container
• Feeling fear or performance anxiety when meeting a new client.
• Refinement of communication skills.
• Learning to navigate unexpected situations.
• Not taking things so personally.
• Burnout or boredom with their practice and are looking for the key to finding the magic again.
Sincere intentions, honesty and the willingness to be open are the key!

Fluid Presence™ 1 with Shantam in Denmark
June 15th – 20th 2021

Prerequisite: Fluid Presence™ Foundation (or equivalent), Presence of Being™ or Instructor permission. Fluid Presence™ Application Form is required.

Fluid Presence 1 builds upon the foundation of Fluid Presence™ Foundation and Presence of Being™. In this course, we expand on the art of dialog with clients before and after the water-holding portion of the session. We continue to deepen trust in our intuitive role in the therapeutic relationship. Verbal and nonverbal reflection skills will be practiced and refined along with the direct experience of giving from “neutral”. A series of sub-aquatic “frameworks” are presented which allow for greater accuracy within the above and underwater holding-positions. This furthers the giver’s proficiency and confidence to simultaneously transmit security and stability along with fluidity and freedom. Students learn to energetically connect, feel and follow what is happening on all levels. Students expand upon what they have already learned about maintaining tonal match and increase their capacity for remaining open and being a supportive presence. This course equips students to better navigate the non-ordinary states of consciousness so accessible in the warm-water holistic therapy environment.

Students can expect to explore:
Expansion of Body Mechanics & Surface Holding-Positions
Underwater-Holding “Frameworks”
Sensing, Feeling, Tracking & Following Energy
Energetic Boundaries
Refinement of the Art of Breath Connection in Relation to Submerging and Emerging
Refinement of Communication Skills
Giving from “Neutral”
Meditative Self-Inquiry
Refinement of “Sweet Spot” Between Stability & Invisibility
Fluid Presence 1™ is an integral part of the Fluid Presence™ Provider training in addition to serving all other forms of Aquatic Bodywork Therapy modalities.
