Closing the Bones
(classes are closed during the Covid lockdown, but online classes are available, see timetable here)
Closing the bones originates from South America and is a beautiful ceremony traditionally practised on the floor completely customised to each woman from the music to oils, organic balms, scents, poems, intentions, wishes, sounds and tea! Honouring and holding women at transitional points in their life after birth, loss, miscarriage, menopause or closing a chapter in their life. Creating a space and a pause allowing her story to be told, balancing transformative qualities of closing, opening and holding on.
We use nourishing oils plain, floral or warming for massaging tummy, lower back, hips, feet, face and scalp. Women are rocked, held, wrapped and bound energetically and physically using rebozos which are handmade and ethically sourced from Mexico. To conclude the ceremony with a warming cuppa, chat and the woman chooses a tiny charm to have a special keepsake afterwards.
