These Two Hands…

My hands are my primary means of self expression within my world. If you are here at ReAwaken Through Touch, you know that one avenue of that expression is my massage work. Did you know that I also create genuine stone and sterling silver beaded jewelry? 
I have many pieces now on my Etsy site Dawn Welburn Jewelry. I believe passionately in the power of genuine stones to aid in healing and strive to facilitate your healing through the multi-faceted touch of my jewelry creations. In addition to the jewelry on my site, I also create custom order pieces.  Contact me at DawnWelburnJewelry@gmail.com for more information or through Etsy at Dawn Welburn Jewelry.

Weight Loss and Bodywork

image

There are many benefits one can gain from adding massage therapy into their weight loss plans. One of the effects briefly mentioned in the article I have linked below, is the mental or emotional benefits of having someone, your massage therapist, as a safe and trusted supporter who accepts your body without judgment.

I have found massage to be more than just a vehicle for acceptance from another, but THE road to self acceptance. For me, my extreme weight gain was a way to hide from the world and most importantly from my self. Fat was an excellent place to hide. The more years and the more weight, the more I detached from my body. For longer than I can now remember, I only looked at myself in a mirror from a point just above my breasts to the top of my head. I had absolutely no idea of the condition or size of my body.  I am sure this sounds unbelievable, especially if you’ve never been in that place of disliking yourself and your life choices to the extent that I did.

When I began my studies in Massage Therapy, I had absolutely no idea of how life changing the process would be. Giving and receiving massage every week for two years, was some of the hardest and most amazing experiences of my life. I was determined to do the work, even though the level of body awareness required of me seemed impossible at times. I was forced to get to know my own body, to better know the bodies of others. In the reconnecting with my body, I reconnected to my self.

In the 6 years since I began my studies in clinical massage therapy, I have lost around 75 lbs. I did not use any diet or weight loss program, nor did I begin any new exercise regimen. For me personally, massage brought me back into my self and made me aware of my body on a level I have possibly never known. Through massage, I learned to accept my body and before I knew it, that acceptance turned to love.  My exercise and eating changes came about slowly, through this rediscovered love for my body and my desire to live and love life.

In Her Service

As some of you may have realized upon discovering and exploring my website, massage therapy itself is not the main purpose of my Work. Although it has dominated both the site and my life for years, the primary focus or vision behind my work and my site has been to facilitate ones journey into the interconnected and cyclic work of ReAwaken, ReDiscover and ReConnect.

During my personal work on this journey in the past month, my meditations and ruminations have brought forth an important message or theme for my work going forward. An integral piece of my life and my journey is my ever evolving relationship and service to Goddess. She is the inspiration and driving force of my massage work, volunteer endeavors, activism, and ReAwaken vision. I have realized that it is now time to once again share both my personal relationship with Goddess and to facilitate a relationship with Her for those who desire and need Her in their life.

I will soon be adding new Pages to my website and new Services and Workshops. Some of these will be: Goddess Exploration Workshop and Group; ReAwaken Group for Women (and those who self identify as women); New Power of Touch Workshop and Group; Meditation; and Private instruction on all subjects.  If you are interested in participating in these offerings or have any questions on these or any of my other Services or Offerings, please feel free to contact me at ReAwakenThroughTouch@gmail.com.

Many years ago, I was asked to participate in a Service about Goddess at the UUCD in Danbury, Connecticut. Here is a piece I wrote for that Service:

Many people talk about Goddess, Goddess Energy and awakening their inner Goddess.

They call themselves a Goddess or talk about finding their Cooking Goddess, Sex Goddess or Shopping Goddess.

Goddess is often intellectualized and talked about in scholarly or fictional and mythological terms.

BUT, to truly awaken your inner Goddess-to really fully embrace and empower this Divine Feminine within-you have to first really Know who and what Goddess is.

She is inside of you, and outside.
Both the One and the 10,001
She is the Sun and the Moon
The Dark and the Light
Your Daughter, Your Mother
Your Sister, Your Lover

I Hear Her song from the birds in the trees, I Smell Her in the early morning air, I Feel Her in the raging winds and I See Her EVERYWHERE-in Everything and Everyone. She is the interconnectedness of ALL.

In Her Service,
Dawn Welburn
