Esalen Massage® and Energy Work

Jun 30 - Jul 05, 2019 Begins in 1 week
with Brita Ostrom & Dean Marson

Each of us walks around in our own energetic halo. Our energetic fields incline toward and veer away from each other, as we get closer. When two people touch, an energetic exchange begins to build. This energetic field is the heart and soul of Esalen Massage. Dean and Brita have taught the basics of massage around the world; this class promises a new dimension, with a heightened focus on energy and the nervous system. Learn how to quietly tune inward, activate your hands, palpate and recognize energetic fields, and to work with energy lines as well as the chakra system.



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