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.

To live in integrity with one's most cherished beliefs of the sacredness and unity of life.

"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."

Words can not do justice to the profound transformative experience that transpired over three weeks with Bruce in India. I had taken the basic polarity training with Bruce in California in 2012 and was deeply touched by the work. I began to integrate some of the basic polarity therapy into my therapeutic massage practice and always knew that I would further my training with Bruce one day.
 
Well, the day came and even having had a taste of the magic of polarity therapy/somatic emotional release 'a la Bruce' in 2012, I could not have imagined HOW MUCH DEEPER this work would take me into my own authentic way of Being in this body and in the world as well as with my work as a massage therapist, now polarity/somatic emotional release therapist.
 
Bruce is truly a shining example of Divine Intelligence in action. My gratitude for his ability to lovingly share the profoundly transformative potential of this work with such grace, intelligence and PRESENCE (and many puns) is inexpressible.
 
Since my return from incredible India where the course was held, I have noticed a subtle source of energy and kind of inspired confidence that I have not detected before, both in my work and life overall. I can't quite put it to words but it has a quality of something that is surging up in my body like a well as opposed to something I've cultivated personally. This work opens you in ways you can't imagine and then you yourself become an open channel for the work to assist others. It's a beautiful exchange.
 
Bruce, I can't thank you enough. It's exactly the 'KaPOW' I've been wanting to add into my bodywork practice, not to mention my own life!

OM NAMAH SHIVAYAH!

Staying Healthy in India: Tips For Staying Healthy in India:


Hello Bruce, this is Radka. I just wanna let you know how much you have influenced me on this new journey. I am still singing your mantras almost daily and I am in love with them. I was doing your exercises religiously but switched to awesome local yoga classes, but will return soon to them on no yoga days.

I am fairly confident in the energy sessions and  I am creating a massage room in my house and working on a flyer to post on FB and around our small valley. I am also slowly working on leaving the restaurant job, which is really scary but I can't be putting this off any longer.

I also wanted to express my gratitude for the three weeks we spent together. I am very grateful for all the friends I got out of our time, we are still in touch…

The training was best spent money in my life. The profoundness of your teachings and the deep camaraderie, made this trip worth every penny. I hope I will be able to join you again soon.
