~~~ Agua Alma Training ~~~
Agua Alma training supports the trainee to enter into a partnership with water, allowing the basic characteristics of water; such as flow, current, buoyancy and adaptability to support the work. These are qualities of water which each trainee meets on their own terms and develops relationship with.
The connection with water becomes the gateway to deepen one?s understanding and relationship with the elements of air, earth, fire and Self. The training kindles these bonds through direct personal experiences in Nature and in the pool and through sharing with each other. Some theoretical/cognitive material is presented, but direct personal experience is the primary teaching avenue.
Various movement studies, focusing practices, and wisdom traditions shape the interface between client, practitioner, and the basic elements.
