When someone comes for a metamorphic touch session they are already in transformation. Consciously or unconsciously, they recognise that they do not need fixing or healing. They have come because they seek a catalyst and a free space in which to transform authentically, from within.
Naturally transformative beings
Like all of life, we are naturally transformative beings. People are drawn to the metamorphic technique because on a deep level they sense that they know how to do what needs doing, even if they don’t know exactly how that might happen. They are not seeking guidance or the skills of a healer or a counsellor. A session means they are willing to stop putting obstacles in the way of the naturally transformative movement of their being.
The moving centre and the feet
Anchored in the cells of the feet are our core patterns. These patterns will manifest on all levels of our being: mental, emotional, behavioural, physical and energetic. The feet correspond to the moving centre and the foundation of our being. These fundamental patterns shape our relationship to ourselves, and to life itself.
Hands & head
By gently stroking the hands along key points we evoke the doing centre. Patterns anchored here shape how we get things done, our projects, our work, our boundaries, and our ability to engage and complete things. When we work on the head it is about our thinking, the beliefs we hold, and our perception.
An experience of stillness
A metamorphic touch practitioner will never counsel or advise you. They will not initiate a conversation. They leave you the space to relax and enjoy this wonderfully soft touch. Often people go into deep meditative states and experience a stillness that stays with them. Others enjoy a bit of conversation. There is no right way to receive a session. The practitioner will always follow the clients lead.
Your life force at work
My teacher Gaston Saint Pierre, the founder of the Metamorphic Technique, was famous for only saying two things when giving a session. He would nod and say “ aha…aha” and acknowledge what was beings shared. Or he would say “that is your life force at work” when questioned about some new development in the clients experience. He was adamant about not influencing their experience in any way.
The metamorphic touch does nothing to you
Metamorphic touch does not transform you, just as the earth does not grow the seed. It is your own life force that moves and grows you, bringing forth new action, new creativity and new ways of being. When the seed falls to the ground, the contact between the earth and the seed allows this potential to reveal itself. The technique does not bring about the movement, healing and shifts we often see in people who use this practice. It is their own life force, guided by their innate intelligence which transforms them.
A full session usually lasts an hour. However when we use it on friends and family we can give whatever fits in with our schedule. This could be as little as ten minutes on each foot, or a two hour session. Do whatever feels right for you.
Much love, Dominique
In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
