Join Rosen teachers Gloria Hessellund and Meg Butler for an exploration of the body and psyche, as you learn to make contact and connection through touch. These two skillful colleagues will guide you on a special journey of inner discovery and somatic training.

She will be co-teaching this intensive with Meg Butler, a longtime practitioner and teacher-in-training from Santa Barbara. This seven-day course will be held in Berkeley and is open to new and continuing students.

Registrations are due by March 12, but students can still apply with a late fee of $50 after that. There is a non-refundable deposit of $250 for cancellation less than 2months before the start of the course.
This summer the Residential Retreat is taking place at a new venue in Sonoma County in Penngrove, California. The teachers, Sara Webb and Cassie Scott, are continuing a tradition that Marion Rosen embraced — sharing Rosen Method in a beautiful setting surrounded by flowering gardens and rolling golden hills. A Rosen Intensive is a remarkable opportunity to learn this bodywork in an in-depth format over a seven-day period. Rosen Method develops your capacity for self-awareness through gentle direct touch, joyful movement, and dialog.
