THERE’S a very special benefit of sharing the Metamorphic Technique – it can also transform relationships, as practitioner and teacher Hélène Demetriades, right, experienced herself.
“Two years after learning the Technique and becoming a practitioner, I gave my first session to my elderly dad,” explained Hélène.
“We had a very challenging relationship as I grew up, and in a real sense had lived “centuries apart” – he is a Greek from Turkey, born over a century ago now. Gentle touch had never been part of our relationship.
“I had already let go of so much around him when I came to the Metamorphic Technique, and yet when I offered that first session, something magical seemed to happen between us.
“Suddenly I felt him soften towards me, and a new sense of trust opened up. I remember him talking of a dream he had had during the war, in which he had ‘left his body, was free floating in the air, and everything was golden’. I had never heard my father express such sentiments before!
“Every time I went to stay with him (he lives abroad). I would give him a session and the softening and the relaxing between us continued. I have been so grateful in the last two months to have been able to offer him this touch, as in his 103 year his health has rapidly deteriorated.
