Vital Touch, Part 1 - Foundations of Healing Touch

Vital Touch is a series of workshops that empower and educate people about healthy, consensual, healing touch practices. The Foundations course is part of a larger series and explores touch preferences, consent, and a few healing touch practices. This workshop is taken in practice-pairs - so sign up with a friend, partner, or family member - and discover what is possible at your fingertips!


What People Are Saying:

"The first class was especially meaningful for me; I appreciated that we started out by spending time on intention and emotional grounding before learning the physical techniques of touch. That class transformed how I thought about healing touch, and the power of the energy we bring to the experience. The exercise where we offered/received touch from different emotional states, and the exercise where we explored the boundaries of our own energy fields, were amazing personal paradigm shifts for me." - Maia F., Past Participant

What to Expect:

In this course, we will use exercises and techniques to hone your touch skills and gain a deeper appreciation for touch as an essential form of nourishment. This course explores:

  • consent and communication

  • personal touch preferences

  • and several techniques to facilitate relaxation

Other important notes:

  • The course is held online so that you can join from the comfort of your home and the timing of the series is designed to accommodate individuals and families with children.

  • Recordings will be available for one month after the course is completed.

  • This course does not explore erotic or sexual touch (although the skills and awareness you build here can be applied to those realms). Those who cannot respect the intention of this course will be removed from the course immediately without refund.


What People Are Saying:

"My partner and I took Zeyah's Vital Touch class and the weekly cadence became a connecting "date night" for us. We both came away from the course with a great knowledge of one another's likes/dislikes and a whole host of techniques skillfully translated for the layperson. Zeyah is an empathetic and deeply knowledgeable instructor! We would 100% recommend working with her." - Lauren L., Past Participant
