I just finished the 10 day meditative touch massage course with Shantam in Arambol, Goa. It was a beautiful and transformative experience and went way beyond anything I could’ve expected. Coming into the training I was really nervous because I had no experience and this was way out of my comfort zone. Shantam’s passion and expertise on his craft gave me ease and confidence to really dive in and give it my all. I enjoyed that we meditated before we start each day allowing us to drop in and connect to our heart and body so we are able to feel through our work and not be in our mind. The hands on approach to learning this skill has helped me a lot to understand that this is a mediation between client and therapist. Shantam’s patience and energy kept any negative thoughts out and worked well in the small group dynamic. After ten days of the course I feel more aligned with myself and now have new skills with a unique and special approach to massage. Thank you again, I really enjoyed my time with Shantam and all the lovely people I met! 🙏 💗✨
