I am trained in Capacitar Wellbeing Practices and run weekly classes, currently on Zoom and face to face on the Isle of Skye, when this is possible.
Capacitar comes from a Spanish word meaning ‘’empowerment’’ and ‘’encouragement’’ and Capacitar practices have been collected by Dr Patricia Cane from around the world and published in her book, ‘Trauma Healing and Transformation: Awakening A New Heart with Body Mind Spirit Practices’.
The practices are ways which humans have used for very many years both to heal themselves as individuals and in communities too.
I trained with Pat in Edinburgh in 2017/18 and I use the practices regularly to maintain my own wellbeing. The practices include:
- gentle exercises based on Tai Chi
- tapping based on Chinese Acupressure and from Emotional Freedom Technique
- meditation and guided visualisation
- hand holds to prevent feeling overwhelmed with difficult emotions
- hand massage
- head holds based on Reiki
- chakra work for blocked energy
The practices are based on the mind, body, spirit tradition and taking a holistic approach to healing the whole person. They are helpful for anxiety, depression, low mood and trauma.
If you would like to know more or are interested in attending a class, please contact me.
