The Journey of Seiki Shiatsu Vol. 2


Completion of the very first workshop of Seiki Meridian Shiatsu in London





This is just the beginning of my life-long journey of Seiki Shiatsu. I have just completed the first seminar (out of five) on level 1 (There is a total of level 3).

Learning Seiki Shiatsu for the first time was an extraordinarily challenging and ego-breaking experience which pushed me to the edge.

With Seiki Shiatsu, I have to put myself to be 100% with it and be clear and honest to myself.

There is no room for faking. I also had to unlearn the habits of wrong practices which I picked up along the way and were detrimental to my body.

Despite the struggle, my passion for learning and practising Seiki Shiatsu was growing each day, and I felt every moment had full of meanings and purposes.

The pain and challenge of learning the new and unlearning the old, and facing my own shortcomings are better than living in my own illusion that I am doing right (when I am not) but deep inside forever feeling uncertainty and lost in my practice and understandings.

I’m grateful to be trained by Tzvika Sensei who teaches in a clear and precise way with greatest passion, enthusiasm and honesty.

I am also thrilled to practice with my fellow students as well as friends who share the same passion and challenges.

Next seminar will be in May.

Note: The article is about my journey based on my experience of training Seiki Meridian Shiatsu which I have started in February 2019. Although I mention some theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Shiatsu which have references to specific sources, it is entirely subjective of my personal view and understandings.
