Heal Your Life!

Accelerate your healing, personal growth and spiritual evolution in this unique training in Energy Medicine.   This profound synthesis blends Transpersonal and Somatic Psychology with powerful energy healing techniques. It is ideal for healing arts students, healing practitioners, cranial and massage therapists. counselors and all those yearning for the deepest kind of healing .... rooted in a moment to moment communion with the unity and sacredness of life.

Experience a profound healing through Self realization! The uniqueness of our work is a constant intention to address the Soul... the animating intelligence in the body. Our focus is two fold: first is the understanding that the Soul is experienced as consciousness, awareness, presence...  healing takes place as we work with the healing power of the Soul, which we call therapeutic presence.  Secondly, the ancient wisdom reveals that the world is sung into being... that the world is music. Thus we work with mantra, toning and a focus on biological resonance as a key to healing the energy body.

Over the decades as we have explored the cutting edge of natural healing we have come to realize that our most effective healing tool is awareness. We understand this power as Shakti... Life  Force and work with it professionally as therapeutic presence.

Our Energy Medicine Professional Training, is based upon the Vedanta, Yoga, and Ayurvedic revelations of the unity and sacredness of all life.  The ancient wisdom reveals that suffering and disease are caused by our separation from our Divine Self. Healing takes place as we reunite with the Self (atman).  We understand the body as energy and work holistically, through bodywork, exercise, diet and spiritual psychology to unite the individual Life with the Universal Life. 

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 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. As your body as an energy field becomes more coherent, centered, grounded you become more alive, whole, at peace, and ecstatically happy!

"Last year I attended the 3 week professional training in Polarity Therapy with Bruce Burger at Nadia & Mark's Flower House at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. 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. We were greatly supported by the care of Nadia & Mark who created a temporary 'home' for us, surrounded by healthy, sattvic food and juices, crystals and loving attention. 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 at the magical Lake of Atitlan!"

Guatemala  FAQ's Frequently Asked Questions

            "Bruce (Burger), author of Esoteric Anatomy, is a sensitive, caring, and helpful Polarity Therapy teacher with APTA approved Associate Polarity Practitioner program (APP) . The Guatemala course  is 3 weeks, with 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.

             Travel to the area is quite easy with either personal transportation arranged from the Guatemala City airport ($$$), or, arriving a day early, leaving a day late, with travel through Antigua, a quaint Spanish colonial city, 40 minutes from the airport by van (arrangements at the airport, return trip can be purchased at hotel or vendors in Antigua) and 2 hours from Panajachel, with 30 minute connecting boat from Panajachel to San Marcos de Laguna. The 1 km or so daily one way walk (or tuktuk ride, which can be arranged in advance) is along a rural road, which follows the lake shoreline.

              Coursework consists of daily floor exercises, Bhakti yoga chanting, didactic instruction, demonstration(s), and learning/practice 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. The February 2014 cohort enjoyed group events of a fermentation workshop with host Mark, a day trip with city sacred sites tour of Santiago, a Mayan ritual with elder Don Rigo at a nearby reserve, with self-organized ‘cacao ceremony,’ kayaking, temescal, and hiking. Too many ‘activity’ opportunities exist, including trips to San Juan Bautista, San Pedro, Panajachel, and Lake Atitlan hot springs (east of Panajachel, accessible by public boat).

              The program is hosted by Flower House Therapy Center, about 1 km northwest of San Marcos de Laguna, on beautiful and sacred Lake Atitlan. Many local accommodations are available, with majority of 2014 cohort staying at Posada Schumann and Lush Apartments. Flower House hosts Mark  and Nadia offer kind and helpful hospitality, with health building, tasty breakfast and lunch meals provided on a daily schedule. Afternoon health drinks and healthy snacks are offered daily during classes. The sacred ‘lodge’ for class is feet away from the lake, receiving cooling easterlies. The village of San Marcos de Laguna offers various other activities with kayaks available for boating, yoga and ashram activities and classes, nightlife with live local music, and restaurants to fit most tastes and budgets. Small tiendas or markets, and a daily market, offer basic supplies and foods/beverages.

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