Today, we observed the variety of superficial fascia presentation in multiple forms. Superficial fascia layer is mostly composed of adipose tissue. i.e. your friendly loose connective tissue with fat. It lies between the skin layer and the deep fascia layer. It’s a matrix filled with adipose tissue.
What I learned today:
Slight or moderate kookiness is very good for the universe.
Being yourself and keep on pursuing whatever crazy idea that would keep you interested in is the source of the Great kookiness in a very positive way.
When I massage, I am not accessing muscles. I am talking to the superficial fascia which is inseparable from the skin layer, just like the skin of an apple. The skin is continuum of the flesh.
We can be respectful of and happy with the cadaver.

Dealing with cadavers requires us to embrace our own mortality. When uncomfortable, we tend to “check out” of the reality of our body and take a refuge in our mind. It is important to stay grounded and connected to the physical reality of each other. Unexpected emotions could bubble up to the surface. We need a safe container for them during the workshop. It is safe to let it speak and it is also safe not to share. It’s O.K. You process in your own way. We just hold a safe space for ourselves, absolutely with no judgement.
