When a friend recommended last year that I have a session Mal, I thought I’d just go once and that’d be it. However, I’ve begun a journey that I could never have imagined. The safe and loving healing space that Mal offers is helping to take away layers of emotional and physical ‘armour’ which had kept me alone for long periods of time, and not able to open deeply to relationship with men. After a recent session I realised that I’d spent years developing my career as an excuse not to face past trauma, hoping that it would somehow go away.
I’ve been really moved to learn that about 70% of women are affected by physical/emotional issues (in my case, experiences from childhood and serious illness as an adult) which prevent them from experiencing deep intimacy and love from men. I highly recommend going to one of Mal’s talks to learn more about this, including scientific evidence about how we store trauma in the body, and how his practical bodywork approach can be so much more effective than talking therapies.
Tantra, in it’s truest form, is about giving and receiving unconditional love, and clearing the energy centres (chakras) in the body to awaken our spiritual essence and vital lifeforce. My body is starting to come alive again through the sessions with Mal, and it’s something I would wish all women to experience – to be in the beautiful sacred fullness of their sexuality, and be comfortable with that.
