Registration is different, depending on your situation:
***Make sure to read all 4 options below carefully!***
In our daily lives & over the years we absorb so many messages into our bodies, minds, & spirits –from media, people, culture, etc around us; a lot of which we’re not fully aware of, & which deeply affect our patterns of living, well-being, how successful we are at manifesting our dreams; And which deeply affect not just us, but the lives of those around us, & the globe. In this community playshop people from diverse, positive-focused backgrounds/beliefs get together to support each other, celebrate life, & help each other be aware we’re all a part of, living & breathing in – a positive natural stream of infinitely powerful beauty, wonder, abundance & love! Own & claim that truth, let it shape the world. Come be uplifted, nurtured, & embraced!
Some easy massage techniques, & ways to massage without tiring or straining yourself, are taught. When 4 people massage 1 person, the person pretty much melts: You don’t have to put as much energy into it; as 3 other people are contributing w/you, -- beginners don’t need to worry whether what they’re doing is good enough, as what everyone contributes adds richness & variety to the experience!
~*Participants need to be willing to give as much AFFIRMassage as they receive; & comfortable giving & receiving from both genders.*~
Terrific practice & group activity to learn to share at any gathering of friends & community; & especially before physical activity, or facing life’s challenges. Learn it & share it with your community!
This series is a gift from Diana & The WHIMSYUM to the community! AFFIRMassage is part of a Global Movement devoted to supporting human beings owning their birthright to a positive life & therapeutic human touch --by sharing these practices/ gatherings *FREE* with each other across
the globe! ***If you attend this gathering you're agreeing that if you pass on this practice, you'll pass it on free ***

When it's 8-HANDED MASSAGE, & not AFFIRMassage: We do massage w/instruction in a few easy massage techniques & ways to not stress your body while giving; + share a couple of New WHIMSYUM massage techniques: No experience necessary! A great social activity! When 4 people massage 1 person, the person pretty much melts: You don’t have to put as much energy into it (as 3 other people are contributing w/you), beginners don’t need to worry whether what they’re doing is good enough (as what everyone contributes adds variety to the massage). Folks feel free to relax, talk, laugh; breathe & listen to breezes in the leaves or the conversation around you. Get some love & touch in this wonderful nurturing community!
