Refining touch and contact skills that clarify and honour our human condition,

the movement of life towards wellness, and our unique talents.


Deeply rooted in the Shiatsu and Japanese healing and philosophical traditions,

the Seiki approach to body-mind work is simple and transformative. It demonstrates

clearly how the movement of physical and emotional distortions in life can be recognised

and transformed by the development and refinement of Ki-sensitivity, mindful observation and an empathic contact between giver and receiver.


Daniela worked with Akinobu Kishi, the founder of Seiki, for 10 years, in UK, Europe & Japan, organising several workshops for him and Kyoko Kishi in the UK. She has facilitated

Shiatsu training for over 20 years, and has been presenting Seiki workshops since 2007, alongside Mindfulness as a health intervention. Her approach combines Seiki with Amerta Movement and Mindfulness. In 2014 she co-authored the book “Embodied Lives” (pub Triarchy Press), where she outlines how integrating these practices offers a wider spectrum on how to approach and cultivate wellness. Her work is also influenced and inspired by long term practice and engagement in Zen and Tibetan Buddhism.

Following The Integral Movement Towards

Wellness & Balance Within Our Being Human


25 -26 April 2020  

Refining Touch Communication and

Diagnostic Skills through Resonance








The orientation for both weekends includes:


  •  Quality of contact and communication through presence and resonance

   •   Communication through form (kata) and beyond form

   •   Mindfulness, as in focussed caring attention and choiceless awareness

   •   Developing confidence in following the knowing in the felt experience

   •   Fostering and sustaining a sense of embodied open enquiry from curiosity

       and non-striving

   •   Noticing and following the movement of the receiver

   •   Treatment and diagnosis as one

   •   Contacting life as a living aware process, not as a theory


The weekends involve a blend of demonstrations, practice and discussion

and some work outdoors in the beautiful Dartington Gardens (weather permitting)


When taken together, these two workshops complement each other and offer a

deeper experience of some of the core elements of the practice of Seiki


The November19 workshop places an emphasis on how to recognise and cultivate the person’s integral movement towards wellness and balance and will include the practice

of Ma-ai (exploring the appropriate “therapeutic” space when connecting & communicating through touch). The second workshop in April focuses on exploring resonance

(how to observe and contact the receiver as a whole) and the practice of Kokoro

(mindful heart to heart communication)


The April20 workshop places an emphasis on exploring resonance (how to observe and contact the person as a whole being) and Kokoro (heart to heart communication), and the second workshop will focus on how to develop confidence in recognising and following the person’s natural movement towards wellness and will include the practice of Ma-ai

(exploring the appropriate space between giver and receiver when giving Seiki)


Both weekends are suitable for new comers and seasoned practitioners. For new comers, please note that the work takes place on padded mats or futons, on your knees


Price: £150 for each workshop (or £250 for both)
