Deep Bodywork® and Cortical Field Re-education®

May 02 - 09 Begins in 1 week
with Perry Holloman, Harriet Goslins & Johanna Holloman

Traditionally, deep tissue modalities have been practiced and taught with a singular focus on organizing the body’s connective tissues. Rarely is there an emphasis on the relationship of the brain to the body’s structural components, which supports a deep exploration of body, mind, and soul. This seven-day experience with Perry and Johanna Holloman and Harriet Goslins proposes to teach Deep Bodywork as a modality capable of influencing our nervous system’s relationship to our body’s structural elements.


Your Life Cannot Be Any Easier Than Your Movements: Healing with Cortical Field Reeducation®, Feldenkrais®, and Brain Plasticity

with Harriet Goslins, Sybil Krauter & Laura Kunysz

How we sit, stand, move, or respond to contact with others reflects patterns wired into our nervous systems in infancy. By early childhood, conflicting intentions distort these patterns. Feeling powerless, we attempt to survive and to win love by figuring out “the rules.” The resulting strategies may protect us as children but, deeply ingrained in our muscular postures and movements, they limit our choices as adults. These engrams remain outside of awareness, causing discomfort and dysfunction.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
