Somatic Emotional Clearing
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 counseling 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 trauma, and promotes mental
and emotional clarity and wellbeing. Bruce's work offers a unique
hands-on synthesis of Transpersonal and Somatic Psychology.

will facilitate a sacred space for releasing the past, quieting the

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
