a psychologist who was an Esalen scholar-in-residence from 1966 to 1970, has practiced Rolfing since 1968, when he was trained by Dr. Ida Rolf. His early research in Zen Buddhism strongly influenced his approach to the Rolf Method.
This workshop is an introduction to the principles of Rolf Structural Integration, especially designed for body-therapy and health professionals. Strongly influenced by his research in Zen Buddhism, Ed Maupin considers the Rolf Method a meditation on physical presence as well as a physical therapy. This approach, based on forty years of Rolfing practice, strongly emphasizes movement, balance in gravity, and receptive touch. The workshop will combine regular movement classes with hands-on instruction in the first three sessions of Ida Rolf's original ten-session series.
