For nearly 40 years the school has offered a unique combination of presence-oriented training in techniques and knowledge essential for any therapeutic bodyworker. Our classes are offered in a supportive, residential intensive format that allows the student to become totally immersed in the learning process. Our professional staff and instructors are here to assure that your learning environment is nurturing, fun and full of self-discovery.
Our flexible schedule of classes and training programs allows you to:
Begin a new career in the healing arts
Take continuing education to broaden your skills
Experience personal growth
Our classes give each student the solid, hands-on practice of skills and knowledge any good bodyworker needs to be successful. But we don’t stop there – all of our courses integrate the core principles of presence, breath, support and conscious touch while nurturing the innate gifts of each individual student. The “Heart Conscious” principles of Harbin Hot Springs are integrated into our classes to reflect the healing potential of our sacred land and waters. We are dedicated to training professional bodyworkers to hold space for healing in their communities. Our students have gone on to find the freedom of their own practice or to work at premier spas in the Bay Area such as Cavallo Point Resort, Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and many more throughout the country and the world.
If you want to make a difference in the lives of others through conscious touch, come train with us.
