The Jahara® Technique – Support
Support is the balance between presence and sensitivity that enables the Jahara practitioner to amplify the range of movements in order for the body to enjoy the freedom to float in water.
This freedom never turns into a feeling of lack of protection that could generate fear. In actuality, what the Jahara practitioner supports is the participant’s head and some key parts of his body. The water itself also provides constant support.
With practice, one can acquire the skill of supporting as well as an attitude of listening and respect. In some cases the participant needs constant support, closer to the Jahara practitioner’s body in order for them to be able to relax. In other cases wide movements are needed, which gives participants a feeling of “flying”, and they can explore a new relationship between the body and three dimensional space.
For a number of people, feeling supported is such a forgotten and unconsciously longed for sensation that their deepest resistance, and their most secret fears give up and melt away. When the treatment ends and they stand up, the look in their eyes expresses infinite gratitude, for having retrieved that part of them that simply trusts.
