Chinese yoga, known as qigong (or chi kung), changes lives. In many people's lives and in hospitals, spas, retreat centers, corporations, and even in the military, qigong consistently emerges as the self-healing tool of choice. Why? Research shows gentle tai chi-like movements, self-massage, breath practice, and meditative mindfulness have a consistently measurable effect on the nervous system, brain, and body when practiced consistently.

We live in a world that constantly challenges our bodies and our nervous systems. We have psychological, social, environmental, biological, and lifestyle challenges to our wellbeing. Over time, these challenges can diminish our innate capacity for healing, self-regulation, and sense of being able to stay on top of our daily lives. Reversing the depletion process can become a challenging, yet crucial endeavor for our lives.
What in the West we call traditional Thai massage is known in Thailand as Nuad Bo’Rarn. Nuad is a Thai word that translates as “to touch with the intention of imparting healing.” Bo’Rarn is derived from Sanskrit and translates as “something ancient and revered.” Historians date this traditional medical practice from approximately 500 BC.

Zero Balancing (ZB) is a nondiagnostic system of healing which clarifies and coordinates energy fields in the body, balances body energy with body structure, and focuses on bone energy and the skeletal system. Science has shown that energy and matter are fundamentally coupled; psychology has shown that the mind and body are interconnected. ZB embodies both perspectives. It is based on the experience that balancing the body’s energy with its structure has a direct positive effect on physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.

Did you know that no mechanical engineer has ever been able to replicate the efficiency of the heart, which puts out more energy than it takes in? This little-known fact points to a larger truth: the heart holds information, power, and benefits beyond what most of us have tapped into. The heart is a power center, and a source of intelligence that operates very much like a GPS, guiding us to our unique purpose and fulfillment, but only when we know how to eavesdrop on its messages.
CranioSacral Therapy 2 studies cranial-base dysfunctions as diagnosed and treated by Dr. William Sutherland, the “father” of cranial osteopathy.

An introduction to SomatoEmotional Release will also be presented.
The prerequisite for this course is Upledger’s Institute CranioSacral Therapy 1 (CS1) and thorough working knowledge of the 10-Step Protocol.

Today, the fear of losing our eyesight is escalating because of an increase in many deteriorating visual conditions. Current allopathic medical approaches offer little hope. In this workshop, you will be taught The Berne Method®, an evidenced-based system designed to reconnect us to the most important sense organ we have: our eyes.
Sam Berne has spent over twenty-five years developing his method, which teaches that neuroplasticity exists within us. Topics include:
· Primordial movements that relax the reptilian response that is so ingrained in how we use our eyes
In this course, you will be introduced to the models and concepts of functional biomechanics as viewed from Jean-Pierre Barral's Visceral Manipulation approach. This method of evaluation and treatment is based on the concept that each of our internal organs rotates on a physiological axis. Focus is on the abdominal cavity and includes the organs, their membranes, ligaments, innervation, and their spatial functional interrelationships. You will be taught basic manipulations for correcting abnormal motions and stress patterns within this cavity.
