"I have recently attended a sandtray workshop with Masha. She provides a warm and welcoming environment, in such a stunning room. I felt really at ease and comfortable. Masha is very knowledgeable and keen to share her knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend her training."
"Masha's Sandplay sessions are a fascinating experience, as the process works with little or no dialogue, so the trauma does not have to be revisited verbally, and the process is taken at the individual's pace. My psychic awareness greatly improved as a result of these sessions."
"I have been wanting to touch base with you to let you know how amazing, powerful, sweet, restful, healing and supportive I am finding the group sandplay sessions. You have such a beautiful, warm and humble energy, that is so holding and nurturing that I feel such a safe and protected space."
"I took the 6 week Integrative Sandplay for Self-Healing course with Masha, and it was such a lovely, calm and nurturing experience. Masha is very knowledgeable in her subject and the course covered many different topics and elements including family dynamics, inner child and symbolism in the sandtray. I would absolutely recommend this course for those who have an interest or a 'want' to explore the power of the sand tray!"
"I truly appreciate the safe container Masha provided during the Sandplay for Self-Healing course. And the guidance in allowing the sandtray to hold all the feelings that arose. I was able to look at some ugly memories, thoughts and emotions that have risen. But have been able to let the tray contain them, and add love into the tray to embrace them. As I was so intrigued and fascinated with this method of self healing, the more difficult emotions were made easier to look at from a detached view point. Masha's suggestion to allow the tray to contain the tears shed, lightened my heart, and further gave permission for me to release in a safe way."
"Sandplay is a remarkably effective and deeply moving experience. I never thought that “playing” with symbols in the sand would have such a meaningful and therapeutic impact on me, but it has helped me recognise so much about myself in a very different way than talking therapy does. Masha (as both a teacher and a therapist) guides you through the experience with warmth, understanding, empathy and wisdom, and you feel very much in safe hands so you can explore and accept the aspects of yourself that you might otherwise shy away from."
"I have sincerely loved your training as it has continued to re-energise my passion for the sand as a sand therapist!.. You have led us through this training with such skill, sensitivity and humour, I have loved every minute of it."
"I recently completed the integrative sandplay therapy course with Masha and found it to be a wonderful experience. Masha is so nurturing and held the space so well. We were even treated to the gongs which was fantastic. I would definitely recommended her courses and look forward to hopefully attending more in the future."
"I have just completed Masha's 6 week sand therapy course and it has been amazing. Masha is so wise, gentle and respectful, during the course we reached depths I could not have imagined."
Introduction to integrative sandplay course was amazing! I learnt so much both about the process and about myself. The atmosphere and room surroundings were beautiful and Masha was so calm, welcoming and knowledgeable. I will definitely attend more courses, thank you."
I have had a wonderful 2-day workshop with Masha, Introduction to Integrative Sandplay Therapy. I experienced informative, experiential, supportive learning that was fun, challenging and creative. Using sand and symbols provided a safe way to explore oneself. I loved the whole experience, Masha held a very safe space for us all.
"The gong bath meditations help to calm my buzzing mind and help with the anxiety I am feeling at this moment. I find them very relaxing and sleep soundly after.
Masha is a great host and helps you to feel at ease."
"My first gong bath - can't think of a better way to spend the first Sunday of the new decade! It made me laugh inside, I felt my body vibrate & feel so much more positive than I usually would on a cold, grey January day!"
"For me Masha's Gong Bath Meditations have been like a rapid track into a very deep meditative state. I do not experience this depth as soon through other practices. I love it and I will be back."
"Just home after my first session and I loved it so much!! I was hesitant as I really struggle to chill out and switch off so if this can work for me it can work for anyone.
The sound of the gongs is beautiful and so relaxing. I feel wonderful and will certainly be booking onto more sessions with Masha."
"The most beautiful session to experience live with Masha. Deeply relaxing and a great spiritual journey to an improved sense of health, wellbeing and connection. Such gorgeous sounds reverberated through my whole body and filled me with a sense of calm and stillness.. ."
"Absolutely enjoyed every gong session I had with Masha! The gongs are powerful and never failed to send me into a *trance*. Afterwards I felt like things have been put right within my mind and the joy I've felt lasted for days! Masha is excellent in what she's doing, always caring, professional and knowledgeable..."
"I'm a total convert to the healing power of the Gongs, and Masha is simply excellent in her presence, presentation, and performance. I was a little sceptical to begin with, but the depth of these gong baths is so much deeper than I have gone with other meditations..."
"Having been to many gong baths over the years I can state that Masha is amazing! She is highly intuitive and flows with the energies, and through the gongs she provides a very powerful healing experience. I highly recommend a one-to-one gong bath session, a beautiful bespoke healing just for you!."
"I've never really enjoyed gongs, though I have always loved other instruments in sound baths. However, I have now changed my mind! Masha is so sensitive as she plays the different gongs, and is mostly gentle, so I am not anxious, and the 1-to-1 session I had with her recently took me somewhere else - heavenly!!! Colours, sensations, light -all beautiful..."
"Thank you. It was my first experience of a gong bath meditation last night and I was not disappointed. The wonderful sounds and vibrations were so beautiful. Some improvement in my sleep too. Masha has such a presence and her voice is gentle and calming."
"I’ve just experienced my first virtual sound-bath and that was amazing!
I experienced colours and shivers with certain sounds and I am now truly relaxed.
Thank-you Masha for sharing your sound healing vibrations."
"I have just returned from Masha's mini retreat. An amazing weekend filled with exploration, inner adventure and fun. I would highly recommend this weekend which is held skilfully and safely by Masha."
"We have had such an amazing time in such a beautiful space, with challenge, support and love to enable me to flourish."
"I loved the weekend! I do feel I've had some huge shifts since, and even though I felt like I'd done the equivalent of 10 hours' therapy, the processing afterwards was quite gentle. It was put together really well, and every activity seemed to build on the previous ones... I've felt a lot freer and more creative since I got home... The weekend really fired up my imagination which had been laying dormant over the long lockdown months. And of course it was lovely to be in a room with like-minded souls again! I would highly recommend this weekend and I am definitely going to attend another one. You have created something very special there."
"What an amazing, nurturing, safe place Masha offers, not only physically but also herself, to explore your deep emotions. Thank you Masha for a an amazing safe experience to explore my inner world... through sand, clay & gongs."
"Masha has created such a beautiful, safe and loving space to explore, express and be held. I have every intention to revisit again."
"Masha is an amazing, knowledgeable, emphatic, very gentle guide and a teacher, who will take you on a journey of self discovery like no other!"
"Magic, Mystery, Music and Soul-filled creations , love, laughter and tears, hugs and delicious treats all combined in a wonderful alchemy. Heartfelt thanks to you Masha for making this happen and to my beautiful fellow tribe companions. My heart is full."
"A wonderful time in a most supportive and nurturing environment. When you enter it is like a Pandora's box! Simply wonderful time of rest and restoration."
"Your retreat was the most beautiful heartfelt experience. I don’t even know where to start as I try to put some words together. It felt expansive, connective and a deep dive into my soul with like minded gentle souls. You created such a beautiful calm and loving space for much to unfold. I loved working with sand trays and can’t wait to get my own and start collecting... To have complete freedom to play and so much to play and create with was quite magical... The two evenings of sound healing were… gosh I’m lost for words. I’m so grateful to have experienced them. I so so wished I lived nearer so I could experience this on a regular basis... Your sound healing felt like such a beautiful journey. It kept giving and delighting and I felt able to soak it all in, relax and not be concerned it would be too loud... It was magical and felt so healing and restorative. My fit bit told me I slept for a solid almost nine hours that night. I felt so grounded and relaxed walking to the last day of the retreat.... You hold the most beautiful gentle space... The sand and sound retreat has been a truly wonderful life enriching and magical experience. I am travelling home with so much more. My hope is to come again. "
