Compresses – hot and cold packs - harmonizing energy for your well being by using cold or hot compresses

It is easy and simple and most likely you will find all essentials needed for a soothing pack right in your home.

I will introduce you to the most effective hot and cold applications. They work like magic in a small emergency. A gentle, simple and sustainable way to support your body’s recovery and healing.
Give a temperature impulse and stimulate using water, oil, soil or curd as a base.  - You might want to add active herbal ingredients from essential oils and tea infusions to intensify the treatment.

To balance mind, body and soul, there is not just the option of working from within but one can also influence the metabolic process from the outside. With the compress, you give the organism an impulse stimulating its flow.
This can be done directly on the affected area or its related reflex zone

Excavate the depths of your creativity with Blind Painting

Gain new perspectives by intuitively tapping into your creativity while stimulating artful team building.

Blindfolded, left handed and experimental painting to music.  This experiment takes place in my art studio and the participants work individually exploring creative process.


Phase 1 Blindfolded
The tactic of beginning blindfolded releases the creator from competitive performance and aids us in our discovery of the flow of our brush stroke, what is referred to as your signature.  This part of the workshop is accompanied by flowing instrumental music.

Phase 2 left handed
After removing our blindfolds we will then review the nature of the work completed and it’s qualities.  Next using our left hand only during the second phase we exercise our ambidexterity. This part of the workshop is accompanied by experimental music.

Michelle has lectured at San Francisco's Academy of Art University on drawing from memory techniques. Switzerland's Kanton Schule Zürich has invited her to host over a dozen demonstrations for A Wie Atelier. She taight workshops in experimental and blind painting to the engineers at Google Zürich, GIS-Zentrum Baudirektion Kanton Zürich  to the Integrative Psychiatric clinic in Winterthur and to mentally disabled adults with the City of Turin in Italy.

Her art exhibited in Europe and in the United States including  Galerie Cècile Charron in Paris, Galleria del Arte Ill Milennio in Venice, and Galerie Mainau in Zürich.

Sound Bath Immersion - an audio meditative experience, full body/soul sonic massage using sound vibration.

Relax and unwind as the outside world becomes meaningless as we allow our senses to play, feeling and hearing as the sounds move through the core of our very being. Our experience will bring us deep into ourselves on an intimate journey offering us healing to the mind body and soul. Our journey begins with a few minutes of breath work during which, we will all be invited to bring in and set our intention for the experience. Once we have settled into space Aishling will play a variety of instruments bringing us into a deeply relaxed state of being. Ten Crystal Singing Bowls will be played from the center of the space and at other times Aishling will be moving around us with the smaller mobile instruments. Aishling’s sound baths experiences can be described as healing musical performances played with Koshi chimes, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, bells, rattles, rain sticks and ocean drum. Our journeys encourage us to return to our natural state of balance while allowing deep insight from the subconscious to rise to the surface. On a physiological, psychological and physical level sound baths can aid in calming our nervous system, relieve stress, anxiety or depression, clear our minds, aid insomnia, ease chronic pain, and decrease blood pressure.    

Aishling Muller is an Irish intuitive physic, energy healer & visual artist. Aishling trained with the Academy of Crystals & Natural Healing in Scotland & has also completed training in sound healing, the subtle body energy and chakra systems, aromatherapy, natural magic as well as currently following her interests in herbalism and shamanic tradition.

Aishling draws on her experience of self healing & her experiences in the creative fields believing the energy of creativity and energetic healing to stem from the same place.
