C6:The Holistic Haircut: The Barber as Healer, Shaman and Energy Worker (Workshop)
Presenter: Gloria Davila
In Chinese medicine, the hair is a manifestation of the kidneys, and the kidneys hold our connection to our ancestors. The Holistic Haircut is an energetic process whereby when the hair is cut, vibrations move down the hair shaft which stimulate messages that are held in the body. Using this process, haircutting becomes a process for letting go and changing our family history.
This workshop is an experiential demonstration about how to use Family Constellations while having a Holistic Hair Cut. The workshop will include a brief introduction and discussion about what is a holistic haircut.
I will then demonstrate a hair cut with a constellation for one of the participants.
Questions as the following will be answered:
- What is a family constellation doing in a beauty shop?’
- What is the difference between a holistic hair cut and the traditional way of cutting hair?
- How can this way of cutting hair help in healing unconscious memories?
