What is Metamorphic Touch?
Metamorphic Touch involves a gentle, loving touch on the feet, hands and head of the receiver. By loving I mean that we are offering an unconditional space to the person we are working on, not analysing or guiding them in a particular way. Each one of us has a particular blueprint and a reason for being alive and it is not my job as a Metamorphic Practitioner and Teacher, to decide what that should look like for another person. Instead by coming from a place of detachment, I can provide an open space without direction where my client can come home to the ground of their own being, and decide for themselves what feels right for them. It involves no questions, no case histories, just a simple soft touch which many people find relaxing and empowering.
Many people come to receive sessions of the Metamorphic Touch because they feel drawn to it in some way. Maybe they are a crossroads in their lives and sense they need to find their answers from deep within their being, or going through a big transition of some kind or simply because it feels right.
In my own case, I came across the technique at the end of period of intense turmoil following the breakdown of my marriage. Over a number of sessions, I began to feel an increasing sense of direction which gave me the impetus to return to my native Yorkshire after 33 years, a decision which has been really good for me, although not necessarily always easy. I have come to trust my inner voice more and have the courage to act on it.
Parents can learn how to do it on their children, partners and friends can swap sessions. It can be done, anywhere and anytime.
The Metamorphic Technique was developed by Gaston Saint Pierre in the late 1970's. He had spent much of his life exploring issues of consciousness and transformation and was aware of why transformation could not be intentionally ‘caused’. When he encountered the Prenatal work of Robert St John this allowed him to develop the practice he named Metamorphic Technique, placing the emphasis firmly on the importance of detachment.`He founded the Metamorphic Association in 1979 and this became a registered educational charity in 1984.
I trained extensively with Gaston completing his teacher training in 2002 and have taught many workshops in this wonderful work. I now call what I do and teach Metamorphic Touch.
