Anointing with fragrant oils was followed by bathing the feet with a special blend of essential oils. This was a most inspiring and grounding experience in acknowledging and serving the divinity of the receiver.
To sit at the feet of another, bathing their feet and honoring them felt profound and biblical. Notes of gratitude opened in my heart and mind for the privilege of experiencing this sacred humility of grace.
The theme of Self Healing grounding our Reflexology practice was standing on our own feet in our own unique truth while defining and strengthening ourselves to the outside world.
This connection to the very thing we stand on for grounding in the world, our feet, and the focus of the training, felt both humorous and profound.” Amanda McNabb, Aurora, Colorado; advanced Naturopathy student.
“Reflexology sacred anointing followed by bathing the feet of our partner in fragrant essential oils makes me feel the most humble of servants one hour and when I receive, a queen the next. Participating in foot bathing is a most sacred gift.
When I give a footbath with fragrant essential oils to another person, I feel as though I am praising their highest self. I feel a deep honoring from my core to theirs, as though I am in service to God.
When I receive a foot bath, I am able to completely drop into the art of receiving. I feel like a queen being graced with the pure essence of love. Gratitude showers my heart as it has taken practice over some time for me to be able to fully receive.
The entire process of anointing drops giver and receiver into deep parasympathetic relaxation into the still center of the primordial breath.
I am so in love with the core spiral and rhythm of our bodies and being able to tap into each person’s core current. With conscious presence and space holding, it is remarkable to witness the balance and healing that commences during each session.
The fragrance of the therapeutic essential Young Living Essential Oils is another element that returns us to holy equanimity. The essential oils awaken my cells and bring me into the present moment.
I am so grateful to give & receive this abundant nobility because it is an incredible form of meditation that is ancient and holy, fragrant, relaxing and inspiring.
After 4 12/ years I am honored to be an assistant teaching and honing the skills to assist this class with full presence. Thank you. Gratitude. Namaho.” Hayley Porter, Graduate Reflexologist, advanced Naturopath student.
Our next training is in the spring session 2016 in Boulder, Colorado.
