Hello, I'm Dagmar Bock.
I teach recipes for Love, Joy & Presence.
I’m a Practitioner and Trainer of the beautiful method of integral touch and holistic healing named Facial Harmony.
I’m also a happy mother and wife, a right-handed writer and left-handed painter.
Love, Joy & Presence.
What it all boils down to.
It’s what people feel when I lay my hands on their faces. They forget their worries and allow themselves to take in a full hour of loving touch, melting down old stories.
It’s what people experience when they become Facial Harmony Practitioners. They give themselves the time to finally drop their social mask and encounter themselves with love.
It’s what people sense when they step into my kitchen. After a while they find themselves dancing while we cook.
There is a widespread sense of inadequacy in this world. And it's so common that most of us don't even know it's there. Too many people feel deep down that they are not good enough. They might see the light in others (perhaps, if they take the time), but not in themselves. They lead repetitive lives with repetitive patterns.
There is a lack of connectedness. Lack of connectedness with self, with loved ones and with the joy of life. Too many people race through their days, annoyed by every-day nuisances that could be every-day miracles.
Imagine how the world would be if we did not only look, but see. Not only hear, but listen. Not only touch, but sense.
There is something called Quality of Presence. And it is what connects us with the magic of life.
I am not talking about anything miraculous, but rather every-day magic. It's in the simplest things, like the taste of your cup of tea.
You can make yourself a cup of tea in a rush, while thinking of the million things you need to do or you can make yourself a mindful cup of tea.
When made with presence, it tastes different, regardless of what kind of tea you use.
To me, Quality of Presence came through The Integral Touch of Facial Harmony.
I'm Dagmar Bock, born and raised in Venezuela, studied in Switzerland and have been on the road with my diplomatic husband for over thirty years.
I love Latin music, long warm hugs, spicy food, laughing hard, meeting open-hearted people and feeling again and again that we are all the same.
I became a Facial Harmony Practitioner in 2002 and got certified as a Trainer in 2005. It taught me what it means to consciously relax versus just rest and I love that it enriches the person who gives and the person who receives.
Methods, expertise and knowledge are doorways. Ultimately, it’s about doing whatever you do joyfully, lovingly and opening up to what wants to be expressed through you.
Facial Harmony is the doorway through which I invite you to step into my world.
What is Facial Harmony?
The face is like a map of the soul. It has mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes. These are the traces of life and they tell our stories.
Some of these stories are loaded with heaviness, old stress and negativity. In a Facial Harmony session this burden is gently released. The energy lines on the face, head and neck are stimulated with a tender touch so that a natural facelift occurs without the use of any cosmetic or medical products.
How does it work?
The method is based on a muscle relaxation technique created by body therapist Stanley Rosenberg. During his work with drama groups, he noticed that actors could express a much larger range of emotions if their own mask was relaxed. Tanmayo Lawson learned the Rosenberg technique and with Anna McRobert, developed today’s Integral Touch of Facial Harmony.
It is a deep unwinding process. Its soft touch invites a state of deep meditative relaxation. The result is a relaxed face with a clear beautiful expression.
Beyond that, changes occur at an emotional level. We all know how stress and negative feelings tense our features. It turns out that it works the other way around too. When muscle tension that is connected to feelings of sorrow or anger is released, feelings of happiness and joy are allowed in.
