Ibiza is the home for many courses about holistic healing. 2012 is set to be a very magical year and this is a very special course. The Bach Flower Study Program at Buddha House, Ibiza hosted by Joan Jacobs gives you the opportunity to study and train as a Bach Flower practitioner. You will learn about the Bach Flower remedies in depth and how to prescribe them. The Buddha House Healing centre is a beautiful and natural environment, a perfect setting to study in and meet amazing people. Located on the top of a mountain it has breathtaking views across the Island. The fresh mountain air is cleansing and purifying for the mind, body and soul.

The remedies were discovered in the 1930’s by Dr Edward Bach an English physician, he identified 38 flowers and plants that had the ability to heal the emotional imbalances of the body resulting in an overall equilibrium of the mind. Dr Bach was a physician and Homeopath who spent his life searching for the purest methods of healing. He believed, as many doctors do today, that attitude of mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. They work by treating the individual rather than the disease or its symptoms.Today these safe simple remedies are used world-wide by medical and complementary health practitioners, psychotherapists, counsellors, dentists, vets and private individuals. The purpose of the remedies is to support the patients fight against illness by addressing the emotional factors like depression, anxiety and stress, and are particularly helpful for the many people who feel generally tired and unwell without a specific medical diagnosis.

The course is taught by Joan Jacobs, holistic healer with 25 years experience as clinical healer, educator and speaker. Her clinical expertise is addressing mental, emotional and spiritual patterns associated with disease and activating the body’s energy system to restore health. To find out more about the teacher you can read an online interview hereJoan conducted an interesting interview with the director of the Bach Flower Centre in the UK, Stefan Ball.

Stop! Make an appointment with yourself.

relaxation

Are you constantly moving at full speed ahead?

Putting your attention and energy in every outward direction to please others?

Can you remember the last time you did something just for you?

Do you really take good care of yourself?

Self care and nurture will enrich your life immeasurably. Investing time in yourself rewards the greatest as we become strong physically emotionally and on a spiritual level more connected to our higher selves.  By slowing down our awareness expands and we pay attention to what is happening around us. When we are rushing around our energy starts to deplete, we run our batteries low but we keep going even if we are exhausted. We are all culprits of not listening to ourselves.

It’s time to honour yourself and your energy. Make an appointment with yourself in the diary. Turn off the computer and phone and switch off from ‘work’ mode.  I did this for myself yesterday and had a Shiatsu treatment for the first time, with a lady who lives on the Island called Tanja Nooteboom – it felt amazing. It’s a very gentle treatment and during it I began to feel parts of my body connect energetically through the meridian lines as the blockages were released and the energy started to flow naturally.  Tanja is offering a Shiatsu workshop next Wednesday 20th July at the Garden of Light from 10am – 5pm where you learn how to give and how to receive a full body treatment. ENQUIRE NOW for more info about the workshop.

Make a commitment to yourself to do something nurturing and healing at least once a week. Spend time in nature, go for a long walk or just spend time at home relaxing in the garden, have a massage or treatment, whatever you enjoy doing that’s just for you.  Remember. You are in charge of your life. YOU are your number one priority. Don’t burn yourself out. Stop, look and listen because you are worth it! Retreat for a whole 5 days in Ibiza’s nature and totally switch off and Just Stop.

Shiatsu is a Japanese word meaning “finger pressure”. Shiatsu was developed in Japan in the twentieth century but has its origin in much older Chinese techniques. It is an holistic therapy, working on bringing balance and harmony to body, mind and spirit and helps to prevent stress. When we are healthy, the natural flow of energy, ki, flows through our bodies in a series of channels or meridians. Ki distortions are perceptible as tension, blockages, or shortages and can lead to complaints of physical, emotional or spiritual levels.

This one day workshop is taught by Shiatsu practitioner Tanja Nooteboom, a committed student of macrobiotics including shiatsu, healthy eating cooking classes, oriental diagnosis, Tai – Chi and meridian exercises.

Through a combination of theory and practice – learn the fundamentals of Shiatsu and how to give and receive treatments.
