WE ARE NOT JUST OUR PHYSICAL BODY

We are not just our physical body. We have an emotional body. A mental one and a spiritual one too. Just to keep it simple. All these are contained and interconnected by our individual energetic bodies. Our energy 'fields' transmit and interact with each other’s and everything else in the...

“ARE YOU WATER HAPPY?”

Water Happy people are people who are happy in water. Did you know that when we smile there is a positive feedback loop that goes back to the brain and reinforces our feeling of joy? It is impossible to smile or feel happy when we are nervous...

THE 5TH DIMENSIONAL HUMAN

No, this isn't meant to sound like a script for a sci-fi movie. This is the recent culmination of my prep work, leading up to the International Water Conference in St Petersburg, Russia. Finding the language to describe and effectively communicate a reality that remains largely unperceived,...

MERMAIDING in OPEN WATER

Welcome to our Merfamily, Do you feel like mermaiding with us on the mermaid shaped island of Corfu? We use professional monofins with tailor made tails to swim in the infinite blue of the Ionian Sea individually or in small groups. The island of Corfu is known for...

BOING, BOING I FIND MY BOUNCE!

What do you feel when you say the sound word “BOING”? What sensations spring to mind? What images, pictures or movements pop up? For me it’s a sense of fun but also elasticity, resilience, flying and playtime. BOING, BOING is about finding our bounce. When we are in love we...

IS THE WORD ‘SWIMMING’ MISLEADING?

I recently had the honor of working with some courageous adults who had decided to face their fear of water. All had serious reasons to be afraid of water and almost all hadn’t had an early childhood aquatic education. What I soon realized was that they all...

WHY I WAIT

I ask you if you want a hug or a kiss, I seak for your permission before picking you up. I ask if I can sit down and join you And I wait for your move. I ask for your opinion before I give you mine. I do my best...

CARING FOR YOUR WATER

I can’t say that I’ve been the moisturising kind of lass and I was never really the hairdryer owning kind either. I soon realised, however, that I simply cannot let things slip if I want to be happy in water. After three hours in warm water, moisturising...

BOOM BOOM!

“Boom Boom I learn to listen to my own heart beat. Boom Boom it’s my own song Boom Boom from the day I was born. Boom Boom it’s my rhythm and it’s my tune Boom Boom cause it’s the way I zoom. Boom Boom it's too fast or it's too slow, Boom...

THE BIRTH JOURNEY

Forgetfully, regretfully, reluctantly we arrive kicking and shoving. Compressed, squeezed and twisted we somehow make it through to the other side. The feeling of love is often absent with only the instinct to survive. The effort required for us to be born surmounts to climbing the tallest mountain...

ARE WE READY TO TALK ABOUT A ‘NEW’ HUMAN?

We are not just our physical body. We have an emotional body. A mental one and a spiritual one too. Just to keep it simple. All these are interconnected and contained within our individual energy fields. Our energy fields transmit and interact with each other’s and everything else in the...

ΤΟ «ΔΕΝ ΜΟΥ ΑΡΕΣΕΙ!»

Ένα από τα βασικότερα όρια που καλούμαστε να μάθουμε μεγαλώνοντας είναι το «δεν μου αρέσει!» . Στο πρότυπο παιδικό σταθμό, ηλιαχτίδα, το «δεν μου αρέσει» είναι μία από τις βασικές κολόνες εκπαίδευσης με στόχο την καλύτερη γνωριμία του παιδιού με τον εαυτό του. Θα μπορούσαμε να πούμε...

ENERGY FLOWS WHERE ATTENTION GOES

"Energy flows where our attention goes." This was one of the first lessons I learnt about managing my own energy. And so it has become one of the foundation principles of Learning Through Transmission. I believe it has also become a more widely accepted part of the way...

SWIMMING WITH A TAIL

Mermaiding has certainly taken off as a global trend whether it be for fun, fitness or entertainment. People young and old, men and women are finding joy and magic in wearing a tail in the sea, in natural bodies of water or the swimming pool. Making magic...

A CHILD’S FEAR OF WATER

When you live on an island swimming is second nature. When you live on an island and you have a fear of water it can feel like being offered an ice cream but not being allowed to eat it. It means you don’t get to take...

HAIRY VIBRATIONS

A hair-raising experience, event, or story is very frightening but can also be exciting. Either way, this hair raising reaction we’ve all experienced including our pet family and friends, attests to something deeper going on within our systems. While presenting Learning Through Transmission in Athens recently, the subject of hair came up when talking about the...

I SEE YOUR TRUE COLOURS

AN EMOTIONAL APPROACH IN WATER Water is the universal symbol for emotion. Deep dark waters are used as a metaphor for subconscious unchecked feelings and emotions, waves as in the waves of emotion that come and go and bubbly waters as in the joyous state of...

The power of our voices.

A voice touched me so deeply today I cried. It pulled on a cord of soul cognition instantly and unexpectedly. It wasn’t he but his voice that so uncannily resembled the voice of one already gone by. A voice that no one has managed to come close to...

ΤΟ ΕΚΠΛΗΚΤΙΚΟ ΡΗΜΑ ‘ΑΦΟΥΓΚΡΑΖΟΜΑΙ’.

Εξερευνώντας την Ελληνική γλώσσα που αντιστοιχεί στις ανάγκες του σεμιναρίου "Μεταδίδω στο Νερό" που θα παρουσιαστεί στην Αθήνα τις 26 Νοεμβρίου 2017, βρήκα αυτό το μικρό ποστάκι για το ρήμα ΑΦΟΥΓΚΡΑΖΟΜΑΙ που ανέβηκε πρώτη φορά στο www.corfupress.com την Τρίτη, 08 Ιανουαρίου 2013. "Ο Τεγόπουλος – Φυτράκης...

BUILDING BRIDGES ON LAND AND WATER

I recently made the mental shift from being angry, sad and frustrated at not having the right swimming pool conditions here in Corfu to being grateful for a rather rare situation I am in. “Nope we definitely don’t have the right swimming pool conditions. But perhaps what...

SOUNDS UNDERWATER

A voice touched me so deeply today I cried. It pulled on a cord of soul cognition instantly and unexpectedly. It wasn’t the boy that was singing, but his voice that so uncannily resembled the voice of one already gone by. A voice that no one has managed...

TI ΜΑΘΑΙΝΩ ΟΤΑΝ ΠΑΙΖΩ ΣΤΟ ΝΕΡΟ

Όταν παίζω στο νερό στους δικούς μου χρόνους, με τις δικές μου δυνατότητες, με τις δικές μου επιλογές τότε: Μαθαίνω ποιος είμαι και τι μου αρέσει. Μαθαίνω να τα καταφέρνω μόνος μου. Μαθαίνω τα όριά μου, της πισίνας και των άλλων. Μαθαίνω πως μπορώ να...

A PASSION FOR AUTHENTIC INDIVIDUALITY

A passion for authentic individuality? What am I really blabbering on about here? To set aside one's perceived reality long enough for one's authentic self to shine forth and then to have the courage to see it through without fear, that's what! So how does one tell...

THE ILLUSION OF SEPARATION AT BIRTH

Have you ever felt a soulful yearning deep in your heart that somehow fails to be met? Or, on the contrary, you do your utmost not to feel it? We carry an innate desire for connection that is often sought through relationships, physical pursuits or consumption...

ΜΕΤΑΔΙΔΩ ΣΤΟ ΝΕΡΟ

Η παρουσίαση αφορά γονείς που θέλουν να υποστηρίξουν όσο το δυνατόν καλύτερα τα παιδιά τους, καθώς και εκπαιδευτικούς που επιθυμούν  να είναι πιο αποτελεσματικοί στην δουλειά τους μέσα και έξω από το νερό. Το νερό είναι ένας ζωντανός οργανισμός που καταγράφει, επικοινωνεί και μεταδίδει ‘πληροφορίες’. Αυτό...

WHO IS THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SHIP?

You’ve let go of mum. You’ve dared stand alone. Now you venture out into the unknown. One step at a time.   The big blue lies before you. Some days it seems familiar and sparkles invitingly warm. On others it feels cold and deep. Beyond your depth. And yet it is the same water with...

LEARNING THROUGH TRANSMISSION

Learning through transmission actively uses human resonance in teaching and learning environments.  It has a particularly positive impact on communication between adults and young children. As well as engaging the cognitive, emotional and imaginative capacities of those involved, transmission learning consciously uses our body’s energy to...

BEING WITH INTEGRITY

Everything is Energy. There is no going back from here. The more open our intellects, the more expanded our consciousness, the more ready our egos to recede, the more light and what that entails, we can integrate into our existence. As receptors, conduits and transmitters of energy the question immediately arises: “What...

ARE YOU #WATERHAPPY?

Water Happy people are people who are happy in water. This positive approach to being in water listens to the time and way people need to feel safe, because it is impossible to feel happy if you don't feel safe. Feeling listened to and in turn respected for...

WHY DO CHILDREN LIKE CRYSTALS?

Crystals emanate high vibration energies that are very familiar to young people. They appear to intuitively know what they are and what to do with them. My experience working with crystals and children has shown me that high vibrations are necessary for their balanced well being. Crystalline vibrations...

FLOATING DOES NOT COME NATURALLY

All human shapes, sizes and ages are able to float. But not all can. I was surprised to discover that it doesn't come naturally. It appeared to be even more difficult for young children who physically and instinctively contracted from doing so. Men are less able to float...

CRYSTALS FOR CHILDREN

Crystal children are able to process high frequencies which explains their natural inclination to work and understand crystals. In fact, having crystals in their immediate environment helps them feel at ‘home’. Due to their crystalline nature, however, these children also reflect what they ‘catch’ around them....

THE FIRST BREATH

The new born in this powerful water birth picture is just about to take his or her first breath. He or she is transitioning from life in water within the mother’s uterus where he or she could still be defined as a creature to an independent...

“THE LITTLE CRYSTAL THAT LIVES IN MY HEART”

When I look in the mirror What I see is that There is a little crystal That lives in my heart   It reminds me whence I came from It whispers who I am It helps me to remember From what I am a part   My little crystal Connects me to my strength To who I...

WHAT TO REMEMBER WHEN I AM BORN

I chose to be born. I chose my parents. I exist before I am born. Entry into a physical body can feel like falling. Physical reality is dense, has corners and feels cold. At first I relate to the world through my senses. My survival is all that matters. I feel everything...

IN WATER WITH ‘AUTISM’

I received you in the water when I thought I really didn’t know how. But I felt that it was a Yes in my heart and so I stepped aside and asked for your guidance. You don’t speak, you don’t look and I’m not sure how much...
