Actualize Your Compassionate Nature

It is a blessing to be called to a life of compassionate service in the natural healing arts.

To be an instrument of a caring universe.

To consciously accelerate one's evolution through a life of dedicated service.

To take personal responsibility for the healing of humanity.

Somatic Emotional Clearing


"I immediately felt I was connected to your work and your energy
and  so glad I followed my inner voice and joined the course.
Its been magical studying with you and the healing is still working in my life now.
Thank you Bruce for  everything: your authenticity, compassion and integrity.
You held a sacred space for me to go deeper into my healing
and to reclaim aspects of my being which had fragmented off from me in the past. 
Every now and again we get a choice  and opportunity
to really invest in ourselves and put our spiritual life and at the top of the list.
The course has been an example of this for me.
It has filled my being in so many ways. Im so glad I made that choice."

"Last year I attended the 3 week professional training in Polarity Therapy with Bruce Burger ... Wowww, what an amazing experience it was! Being completely unfamiliar with any bodywork I was immersed in anatomy, body work, energy medicine and the healing powers of (Sanskrit) mantra's, intention and being present. Bruce is truly a pure soul - must be because of all the Gayatri chanting ;)! His warm, personal guidance, straight from the heart, is accompanied by humor and a lot of experience and dedication to his powerful work. For everybody who is looking for a holistic type of therapy to support others - as well as yourself - in healing, this course is a "must do". It changed me on all levels, physically, energetically, mentally, and spiritually. It's truly a great integration of different types of body/energy work! If you decide to go for it I wish you a wonderful journey ... !"

            "Bruce (Burger), author of Esoteric Anatomy, is a sensitive, caring, and helpful Polarity Therapy teacher with APTA approved Associate Polarity Practitioner program (APP) . The course  is almost 3 weeks, earning 90  NCBTMB approved provider hours. This is an intensive program in which emotional clearing, responses, and attention are required as part of learning and student experience process.
           Coursework consists of daily energy exercises, Bhakti yoga chanting, didactic instruction, demonstration(s), and learning/practice bodywork energy balancing trades. The course is well paced on a daily basis with practice trades possible (and expected) on interim days (including instructor trades, with personal student feedback), which also allow for local sightseeing and events.

               I would most highly recommend this training opportunity, both to learn to deliver Polarity Therapy to clients, and, as a personal transformational experience."

Somatic Emotional Clearing:
Rescuing The Inner-Child

April 2-5, 2016

For  More Information Contact: Gisela Kissing

Join the author of Esoteric Anatomy: The Body as Consciousness in this hands-on training in somatic psychology. We will work with a synthesis of profoundly effective bodywork and somatic techniques, evolved by Heartwood's founder over three decades of research and practice. This conscious approach to body therapy facilitates a cleansing of the body's cellular memory of emotional armoring, and promotes mental and emotional clarity and wellbeing. Bruce's work offers a unique hands-on synthesis of Transpersonal and Somatic Psychology.

The emphasis is on compassion, presence and vulnerability as attitudes which support a safe space in which the client has permission to heal. We will work with the client as a person, respecting the pathos of their life as a conscious evolving spiritual being. We will approach healing as a creative process that is guided by higher intelligence. We will facilitate a sacred space for releasing the past, quieting the mind and healing the heart.

Heal your life as you learn techniques that can safely be integrated into any massage or bodywork system. These techniques release emotional armoring from the nervous system, facilitate emotional clearing, and promote personal growth.

You will Learn a Unique Synthesis of Techniques Including:
* Transpersonal Psychology
* Somatic Psychology
* Holding Sacred Space
* Preventing Retraumatization
* Active Listening
* Resource Building
* Somatic Emotional Clearing
* Releasing trauma from the sympathetic nervous system
* Releasing obsessions from the mind, heart and armored nervous system
* Inervating the parasympathetic nervous system to facilitate deep relaxation and wellbeing
* Focusing
* Sensation Based Awareness
* Etheric Plane Communication
* Rescuing the Inner Child
* Cutting Chords
* Envisioning Our Future Self.

Prerequisite: Bodywork or counseling experience, spiritual and emotional maturity.

Cutting edge research reveals that body centered therapies have a profound capacity
to release stress, dissolve emotional armoring and heal trauma.

Western psychology focuses on the mind and emotions. Transpersonal psychology focuses on the Self, the intelligence that witnesses the stream of thoughts and feelings. While mind and emotions are a kaleidoscope of obsession and instability, the Self is a constant of stable Presence. In this training, healing takes place as we balance energy to attune our life with the Self.

Our original nature is Freedom. Perceived threats to our security lead to obsession and a myriad of confused and contradictory mental and emotional impulses through the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) into the musculature creating emotional armoring. Learn profoundly effective energy balancing protocols that release stress and trauma from the sympathetic nervous system and the cellular memory of the body.
