Guided Partner Massage and Meditation - Claire Thompson

Take the time to ground and connect at the festival. Participants pair up and are led through a simple and effective massage sequence (done through the clothes), while being guided to notice the mindfulness, gratitude, and interconnectedness that naturally arise while trading massages. Bring a friend to trade massages with, or find a friend at the workshop!

At the end of the workshop, you will leave with the ability to give a massage incorporating relaxation, deep tissue, and shiatsu techniques, while also being aware of your own breathing and body mechanics. This way, the healer can stay healthy too. Participants will also each receive a massage, and practice several short mindfulness and gratitude meditations.

Suitable for: adults only

Duration: 90 minutes

Presenter: Claire Thompson

Claire Thompson is based in Los Angeles and travels throughout the US and internationally to teach yoga asana, Buddhist philosophy, bodywork, and meditation.

Her deep knowledge about and fascination with the body is anchored in her 16 years of practice as a massage therapist and her study and practice of dance.
