"SENSEIGHT - Our Inner Martial Artist"
A free introductory webinar to the SOMA method as part of the Senseight Training
by Shirin Nikpay (at TEC 2020)
I started writing this book a couple of years ago in an attempt to tell my life story along all the magic wonders & miraculous healings that I have encountered during the past 40+ years.
This mostly poetic account is enriched with practical exercises for the reader that are simple yet powerful tools for self-development & healing.
You will receive the first few chapters including an outline of the following chapters that I will finally be able to complete with the help of your donation & feedback. A little teaser will be posted here soon!
