Massage Challenges the Modern World

Dealing with Competition and Political Correctness

There is no doubt that massage has a wide range of uses and applications, but in today’s increasingly narrowminded world, it is being reduced to a placebo. This is largely due to the distorted perception arising from political correctness, and social movements based on habits and fears that distort reality.

The people of the modern world seem to have lost any connection to their roots as human beings and they have become human doings. […]

What is Sensual?

Our Bodies and Ourselves in Massage

Before we start, lets remember that we perceive the world through our senses and that our entire life experience takes place in our minds so that perception is a matter of choice.

The very word ‘sensual’ conjures up all sorts of ideas in peoples minds largely due to ignorance and the sexualisation of our societies, so we must understand that all massage is sensual and there is no such thing as a non […]

What is Holistic?

No ‘thing’ can exist or be understood except in relationship to the whole.

But what is the whole?

To begin to understand holism, we must first suspend our disbeliefs and open our minds to infinite possibilities. Holisim is a paradigm which explains who we are, why we are here and how we can live our lives in harmony with ourselves and our natural world.

Holism takes into account the whole of our knowledge from what is accepted as the big […]

A substitute for love

And the need for human touch

Massage is needed in the world, because love is leaving and people are losing touch with reality – the ground that is their bodies.

There was a time when the touch of those you loved was enough. The husband playing with the body of the woman or the woman stroking his body with affection; that was massage and that was enough. It was a deep relaxation and part of love, but that is disappearing […]

Evolution

Growing Up In The Sixties, Los Angeles “The Times They Were A Changin”

By Linda Lee Laurel

It was 1967 The Summer of Love. The times they were changing, I was noticing that guys were growing their hair and my hip friends were dressing different. There was something in the air and I could feel the excitement. It would be an extreme understatement to say there was a whole lot going on that summer.

I know for me it […]

Navarātri

A celebration of the divine feminine

Navarātri is an Indian festival dedicated to the worship of the divine feminine. It is usually held in October and the exact dates of the festival are determined according to the lunar calendar.

These nine nights celebrate the Divine Feminine, and are a time of great festivity in India (Bharat), but this is also an appropriate time to remember our mothers and the gift of your life that she facilitated into the world.

During […]

Our greatest love

Is created in our minds

Love is an idea and like all great ideas, it takes place inside our mind. Remember that perception is something that happens through our senses and our mind that interprets what we see, feel, taste, smell and hear. All experience of our world is internal.

When you fall in love with someone you can interact with physically, in other words love a person you regularly spend time with, who they are even though they exist […]

Response – Ability

A confused word

The meaning of responsible is to have an ability to respond to whatever life presents us with, but in recent times its meaning has become confined to mean a person who has performed a particular action and is therefore responsible for it, or in other words the person responsible is the person to be blamed.

Dictionary’s say:

Responsible is an adjective meaning 1590s, “answerable” (to another, for something), from obsolete French responsible (13c., Modern French responsable, as […]

The Heart of Suffering

Most suffering begins in the mind

Please understand that suffering is anything that ails us from our anxiety and depression to fear, broken societies, diseases, accidents and even the violence in the world.

A feature of suffering in modern society is that most of us think it is something we catch like a cold or suffer like a broken leg, and these things of course do happen. Within Buddhism it is taught that all suffering begins in […]

Humanity On the Brink

Of Extinction

Many children when committing acts of folly are warned by peers and parents that such action may lead to harm, but so many children do it anyhow and then they wonder why they got their fingers burned. Then instead of recognising how stupid they were, they blame someone else instead of taking responsibility.

Civilisation is destroying the world and those who can see are crying stop, but civilisation is like a train with no brakes. It is not […]
