I was inspired to pursue a destiny, in which the knowledge I was seeking would come through me as I sought to explain the Great Mystery to others...

The Polarity Therapy Diet Can Be Approached As A Vision Quest.
The word sacrifice means to make sacred. In the polarity diet we
sacrifice our ordinary eating habits to cultivate more receptivity to
the innate intelligence of nature and the cosmos for healing insight,
liberating realizations and bodily renewal.
The Polarity Cleansing Diet is a fast for the ego and a feast for the
spirit. The diet can be used spiritually as a quest for vision and a
means to contact a higher intelligence within, for guidance and healing.
Set an intention for the diet to facilitate a breakthrough in your life!
What ever it is that is blocking you, you don't have to know what it
is, or where it came from. Spiritual healing is miraculous! Your
intention will manifest a breakthrough, as you communion with a higher
resonance of your own innate intelligence.
The polarity diet is a "sattvic" diet. Sattva is the Sanskrit word for
Being, Truth, "God" the creative intelligence and source of equilibrium
in nature. A sattvic diet facilitates more coherence and harmony in our
energy body enhancing our receptivity to the healing potency of the
The nature of atman the divine within is lucidity . . . this sattvic
diet dramatically enhances our lucidity and the profound well-being that
flows from attunement to our Divine Self.
This regime will purify your body, harmonizing and concentrating your
vibration . . . uplifting your being into attunement with a healing and
revitalizing spiritual potency.
The experience of renewal of dramatically enhanced mental and emotional
clarity, physical well-being, and spiritual presence is meant to be
Your experience of wholeness is meant to encourage you to cultivate an

and personal well-being.

if you are at all inclined to study with Bruce, I have to persuade you!!!
You absolutely need to do it!!!
This was my fourth course, going deeper every single time.
Honestly, I mostly wanted to be in presence of this incredible teacher and a part of the divine community he creates.
work by itself is not just an amazing tool for any and all kinds of
trauma healing you might come across but also a huge leap on your path
of personal growth.
will feel so much more whole, awakened and aligned with your purpose!
You will be charged and ready to put this work into practice.
healing of a wounded inner child and his/ her rescue to safe and loving
environment is my favorite part of Polarity Therapy. Our hurts and long
time buried traumas don’t need to be part of our present
experience. You will learn how to release them and how you can be free
to thrive right now.
classes are being held outside the holy town of Tiruvannamalai, just
at the base of sacred mountain Arunachala. This by itself is like
nothing else I ever felt.
I can not recommend this course enough!!! The depth and profoundness of
it blows my mind every time!! No matter if you are an established body
worker or a newbie, you will benefit immensely.
So many gifts, so many friendships and many many true deep healings happen here.
See you in Tiru next year!!!!
Love and Namaste to all you Goddesses and Gods!!!
"Bruce's Energy Medicine and
Somatic Emotional Clearing workshops are really a life changing
experience for personal growth as well as for your healing arts
practice. What stands out most is the compassionate sacred space that is
held for everyone to explore their own healing journey as well as the
wisdom of learning from a heart-centered teacher with several decades of
professional experience. The first time I saw Bruce Burger at Heartwood
Institute, the healing arts school he founded, I knew I
wanted to study with him because of the light and energy in his eyes.
Its wonderful study with someone who has a depth of many years of
spiritual practice that you can feel in the space.
I just attended the Somatic
Emotional Clearing workshop and was struck by how profoundly deep these
therapies are to get right to the root layer of what causes our pain and
dysfunction. I really resonate with the Somatic psychology approach
that informs the work. Many years ago I attended the Polarity courses
and regularly integrate the techniques into my massage and bodywork
practice as well. Very affordable rates for classes too!"

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.
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
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
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!
I just completed an 18 day intensive course with Bruce Burger in
Tiruvanamalai, South India. This was my first encounter with Bruce
on any level, so I entered the experience with little understanding of
the breadth of his teaching and with few expectations. It was a choice
made from an intuitive sense of rightness and ripeness,
a veteran and professional in the human growth potential, well...I have
one colleague who calls me "BTDT"---"Been There-Done That", I came
thinking that this would be a healers' refresher course for me. While
some of the techniques and perspectives were familiar to me, what Bruce
evoked in his teaching and well designed course was profoundly
personally healing and created a dramatic shift in my perspective as a
is difficult to separate what was taught in the course and who Bruce
Burger is as a highly evolved being who brings all of himself to each
moment of his teaching...both depth and lightness of being,
compassion and detachment, a sense of humor and incisive focus on
staying on track with the material he is intent on presenting.
days were full but well balanced with a relaxed flow of meals,
exercise, chanting, presentation, demonstration, practice and
integration. The flow is so well designed and orchestrated, it
seems seamless and each day builds on the previous for an organic
ripening of the learning process and its assimilation..
creates a beautiful atmosphere which is respectful, kind, playful,
spiritually nourishing & effectively educational.. It is truly
an opportunity for an immersive pilgrimage into the rich, rich culture
of Mother India as well as for personal healing and retreat and
expanding, refining and adding new tools to ones healing tool box. The
oasis of a retreat center, the beautiful host family, the sacred
mountain Arunachala, the profound Shiva energy that permeates the
region, the field trips and the deep dives into the Self make for a rich
tapestry of immersive learning, healing and and refining ones ability
to create healing for another with such a do-able price tag...I
recommend it highly to anyone felling the call."
