Diego Sanchez Uruguay

Heart – Womb / Prostate Axis

16 & 17 September 2022, 9.30-17 hrs

Location: Amsterdam,

Cost 295 euro

Ayurveda, TCM and Shamanism coincide in describing the Heart and Uterus / Prostate channel as the energetic axis of (wo)men. In Chinese Medicine the meridian is called Bar Mai channel. For many (wo)men this area is blocked or not functioning properly. In this seminar we will delve into feeling connected to your heart, to your womb/prostate and to aligning the two. Working with the communication from your heart to the womb/prostate and vice versa we can identify any potential blockages and can work with restoring a proper communication. Matching this to your life story will give a complete picture of where you are standing in the present and the possibility of materializing your life purpose with the awareness of “love in action”. Also the Bao Mai channel works good for;

  • fertility issues
  • menopause / andropause
  • anorgasmia
  • menstrual issues
  • insomnia
  • migraines / headaches
  • digestive issues
  • obsessive behavior

No previous experience is needed. This course is open to general public & therapists of different disciplines. Diego will use guided meditation, visualisation and demonstration to delve into this. It is possible for you to bring to the table one of your own cases and get a tutorial session for yourself or your client.

14 & 15 October: Mike Mandl on

The Power of Water

Mike Mandl on Power of Water

Location: Amsterdam,

Times: 9.30 – 17hrs

Cost: 295 euro

The energy of the Water Element is the most powerful resource in our system. To really understand the water element, we have to understand the trigram Kan of the I Ching. Kan is the key to develop Qi, vitality, longevity, willpower and sexual drive. It can be the root of many diseases, from back pain to Tinnitus to Long Covid. 

In these two days we will deepen our Shiatsu by developing an understanding of Kan which will help us with the treatment of many symptoms. Water is the root of Yin and Yang in our body, as the trigram Kan contains water and fire. So we have to ask ourselves the question if the Kyo has Yin or Yang character, if the Jitsu has Yin or Yang character and treat accordingly.

But Kan (Ming = “destiny / calling”) has also a very deep spiritual meaning. Kan invites us, to walk our Ming through the power of our Shen, our spirit. Again: Water and Fire come together to create a unique power that can navigate us joyfully & meaningfully trough life.

 Focus points

–      Understanding Kan,

–      Diagnosis & Pathologies of the Water Element according to Yin and Yang

–      Effective and clinical proven treatment protocols

–      The use of Moxa, herbs and other external methods

–       How to build up Qi and use it & How to get in contact with Ming

April 2023: Mike Mandl – topic to be determined

19 & 20 May 2023: Philippe van Abeele – Ampuku workshop

Philippe Vandenabeele is a senior Shiatsu practitioner and teacher based in Fukuoka, Japan. He has specialized in Ampuku and wrote a book about it. His book ‘Ampuku Abdominal Acupressure: The Classics at the Heart of Japanese Bodywork’ is available at Amazon. Once a year he visits Europe to teach workshops. For more information:

Ampuku is an abdominal massage that focuses on – but is not restricted to – the Hara.  Masunaga wrote: ‘Ampuku is a very important part of Shiatsu and can contribute enormously toward helping the critically ill and those patients who require calm but penetrating manipulation. Ampuku therapy not only allows the patient to remain tranquil, it also rehabilitates the patient’s internal functioning’. 

In Japan and in the Japanese healing arts the belly or ‘Hara’ is seen as an important – even the most important – energetic centre of the body. This energetic centre is considered as a microcosm that has a huge impact on our overall wellbeing and vitality. In recent years, scientific research has deepened our understanding of the importance of the belly and the gut, and the enteric nervous system, on our overall health; the number of studies, articles and books on the subject increases every year.
