Workshop Details

We live our lives in motion. A muscle appears static on the anatomy chart, and the ribs nicely align, but in fact we are reaching, bending, and coordinating dozens of fine motor skills every second. A joyous mood opens the limbs wider; an anxious thought freezes our breath and contracts our core. During this weekend, we will learn how to use lifting, passive joint rotations, gentle movement, and stillness to make our bodywork more effective, enjoyable for the receiver, and easier for the practitioner. This workshop offers the practitioner a three-dimensional approach into the body-mind experience. The basic lengthening, integrating strokes add another dimension to the massage, welcoming a sense of release and acceptance, while giving the body a feeling of wholeness. The schedule allows time for hands-on practice sessions, feedback, and questions, including individual attention from Brita and Silvia. This course is suitable for those interested in learning basic massage skills, as well as for advanced practitioners who want to add a fresh dimension to their massage. This workshop is especially useful for those in the helping and healing professions in working with their clients and patients.


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