Rosen Method bodywork, with teachers Sara Webb and Meg Butler.
This Summer's Residential Retreat is a very special event. Marion liked to hold intensives in residential settings as a way to foster more connection. An Intensive is a remarkable opportunity to learn Rosen Method bodywork and movement in a in-depth format over an seven-day period. Rosen Method develops our capacity for self-awareness through gentle direct touch, joyful movement, and dialog. We will explore the essence of Marion Rosen's method through demonstrations, shared discussion and supervised practice. The Intensive offers the possibility to learn in an environment of transformation and community.

A four-day holistic anatomy course taught by two Rosen teachers who are also physical therapists with decades of experience working with the body. Jane Pittsinger and Kate O'Shea bring a deep understanding of anatomy from a Rosen perspective. Focusing on the areas of the body that are most important to Rosen Method and the mind-body connection, this workshop is experiential and more than just memorizing names and places of muscles and bones. A visit to a cadaver lab at the U.C. Berkeley campus is included in this course offering. This is an exciting opportunity, not to be missed!
