Touch – Diving deeper into water healing and watermassage
26 januari, 18:15 - 21:30
We are so overjoyed to share the water magic in Utrecht! This event is an invitation to dive deeper into our way of relating with water (within and out), exploring this relationship LITERALLY Within Water!
The Touch of Water, how does she feel on our skin? How does our body feel within? And how can we Touch like Water? How can we receive the other person like water, and thus without a need to change or fix? And how can we move like water, come together like water?
During this workshop ‘TOUCH ~ Within Waters’, you will be guided into remembering your answers on these questions. Besides meditating with water, learning from water, we will provide the basic postures for giving a water massage, learning how to hold someone and provide a safe space for deep surrendering.
There is so much to say about the effect of ‘touch’ alone, how it calms down our nervous system and influences the alchemy of our whole body, how its a basic need for survival.. Though, the touch of water and being within waters without ‘doing’, being lovingly held by someone, is providing an experience that is hard to catch in words.
In the first nine months of our lives,RemrE we have been fully surrounded by water, constantly being touched by water. We were HOME in water. To allow ourself to remember this, come back to this state of being, we will take time to observe our experience of being touched by water again… sink into presence, drop our masks and fully emerge ourself in the experience, to become aware of how she feels and how we can feel and touch from this place.

✾About Within Waters & Water Massages
Within Waters is a co-creation between Rosanne Versteeg and Imaya Renee. It’s a platform for aquatic bodyworkers to share water magic mostly in Amsterdam. Both have been studying with several different teachers to learn about the profound healing water massages.
A Water Massage is a massage that is taking place within the water. The so-called ‘receiver’ will be floating in warm water and experience him/herself free from gravity, while lovingly being held by the ‘giver’. During a massage the receiver will be invited, through gentle touch and stretches, to let go of long-held tension in the muscles and come to an unknown deep state of relaxation.
Rosanne is facilitating this event in co-creation with Kees Schenk from Eigentijds Nederland.
Rosanne feels a deep love for the water element and it has always been a big part of her life. After she received her first water massage she was ‘sold’ and went to Ibiza to complete Aquahara levels 1, 2 & 3. Besides sharing the water magic in Amsterdam Rosanne shares her art. She is a visual artist, allowing her waters to create on canvas. She is an art-teacher and creates workshops for intuitive painting and therapeutic art.
Kees is the founder and organizer of Eigentijds Nederland. His mission is to bring people and tribes together. He loves exploring new dimensions of connection with people through dance, sound, and touch. And fell in love with exploring connection in the water. Kees has a background in Tibetan sound healing. He offers workshops in dance, intimacy and guides wonderful ceremonies for small and large groups of people.
Here some words from previous participants during the workshops:
“Ik had geen idee wat te verwachten, maar dat het zo’n bijzondere ervaring zou worden had ik nooit gedacht. Allereerst weten ze een sfeer van vertrouwen neer te zetten, waarna ik kon ervaren en genieten van het water in contact met anderen die zo bijzonder is. Door de gewichtsloosheid en het zachte water kon ik zo diep ontspannen en helemaal opgaan in de massage en later de dans. Het is niet in woorden te vertellen, dus ervaren is het enige wat ik je kan aanbevelen.”
“I want to recommend this method and Rosanne Versteeg in particular for giving me such a great and interesting experience. I’ve never done anything like this and the way she led the workshop, sensitively guiding us through was beautiful.
“11 years of my life, I was not able to move my body as I wanted to. Always longing for a different body, different legs. I was never able to connect, and feel as one, from head to toe. (…) In the water session, I did not feel my legs, feet, arms and hands anymore. There was only a tingling sensation and a feeling of vibrant awareness gradually growing. (…) Today is my fifth day of experiencing my new legs. My new body. Being able to run, to dance, walking miles and climbing hills, with perfect grounding and an energy flow that’s no longer blocked.
Real healing has occurred… I am reborn.”
Within Waters is sharing (private) water massages in Amsterdam for 1 year now and so much magic has taken place already. It’s spreading already further to Utrecht, Koh Phangan (Thailand) and a retreat in Iceland. Follow our Facebook page or website www.withinwaters.com for more info.
