process skills facilitate more awareness in body, emotions, and thought. This combination of bodywork and conscious processing reveals the whole person and facilitates individual organic growth.

The skills can be applied with health care clients, family, or on oneself alone. PA is helpful for bodyworkers who want to know more about processing psychological material, and for psy- chological helpers who want to learn more about the body. It is valuable for anyone who wants to understand more about integrative development.

The Spirited Body Tom Myers

Written in your body is your entire story. But the body gets stuck and blocks that story from unfolding in its full glory. This workshop uses body work, voice work, dance, writing, and body-centered meditations to gently expose and advance your untold or unfinished stories. Grounded in contemporary somatic science and interwoven with spiritual traditions from Sufism, gentle martial arts, the book of the Tarot, and other esoteric practices, this course is designed to stretch your being, open your voice, and give you more capability to create meaning in your outside life. With minimal talk-talk and maximal experience, come prepared to work, play, and move. Help your inside match your outside and vice versa by energizing your own physically spirited body with five days of expressive fun, deep exploration, and time to give the soft animal of your body room to love what it loves.

Weekend of November 2–4

Gratitude Retreat Janet Stone

“We gather at Esalen in Big Sur for a weekend to remember, with our bodies, minds, and spirits, all that we have to be grateful for,” Janet Stone writes. “This experience includes yoga, reflec- tion, renewal, soaking in the healing baths, hik- ing, and detoxification of body, mind, and spirit. Before you step into the swirl of the holidays this year, give yourself the gift of looking within. Immerse yourself in a dynamic ritual of asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and yoga nidra.

“Let’s recognize each breath as a gift as we’re nourished by delicious organic meals, the natur- al hot springs, hikes amongst the majestic red- woods, or simply curl up in an ocean-view chair. Whether you come alone or with loved ones, you are sure to return to your daily rhythm with a newfound sense of ease, inspiration, and deep gratitude for the life you’re living.”

Janet Stone traveled to India in 1996, where she dedicated herself to a conscious evolution through yoga. Janet blends a wealth of knowledge and yoga experience to create a unique, vigorous-yet-sumptuous approach to Vinyasa yoga. She teaches in San Francisco, and leads retreats internationally.

Anatomy Trains® Tom Myers

and Fascial Fitness

An understanding of the unique properties in the fascinating fascial webbing is essential to any contemporary therapist involved with the body. Originated by Tom Myers, Anatomy Trains is a revolutionary lens for seeing myofascial pat- terns. This workshop combines an overview of the Anatomy Trains “myofascial meridians” with applications to both manual therapy and move- ment training. Open to all massage therapists, physiotherapists, personal trainers, Pilates and yoga teachers, dancers, and anyone who has a body, this workshop teaches you to see and work with the deep and underlying strain pat- terns that produce chronic pain. The “fascial fit- ness” material in this course takes recent amaz- ing research on the fascial web and applies it to

stretching, injury prevention and repair, and long-term healthy functioning. Train your eyes to see the patterns, train your hands to release them, and get the latest on the cutting-edge research.

What’s Next? Reviewing and Revisioning Our Lives Sam Keen

Periodically, we need to review and revision our lives. Every decade of the life-cycle brings new challenges, goals, pleasures, and horizons. Every crisis—divorce, illness, tragedy, success, failure, retirement—requires us to make a new begin- ning, take stock of our past, and look for a new vision to guide us toward a more hopeful future. In this workshop, join Sam Keen to explore:

• Where are you in your life-cycle? What have you accomplished?

• What hasn’t happened yet? What haven’t you done, been, or experienced?

• What have you given? Whom have you loved?

• What’s old, stale, worn-out, boring? What destructive patterns do you repeat?

• What infantile guilt and shame lingers? Whom have you not forgiven?

• What’s new, interesting, exciting, appealing?

• What decisions do you need to make? What future do you see for yourself?

• What are your emerging passions? What promises and potentials are still unfulfilled?

• What are your dreams, values, visions? Where do you look to find what’s next for you?
