The Body Remembers: Healing Trauma and Returning to Ourselves with Esalen® Massage

Feb 18 - 23, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Dean Marson & Brita Ostrom

“Touch is a universal form of soothing, and it can awaken us to what is real in this moment,” the leaders write. “Familiar, non-sexual touch provokes the release of hormones and returns the body to the beneficial relaxation response. This workshop expands our understanding of healing touch. It offers tools to make touch safe and consensual, and allows for deeper release and present-moment centeredness within the context of a massage or bodywork session.
