In a charming residential retreat setting at the Cascadia Centre located in the heart of Roberts Creek situated on a three quarter acre property within walking distance to beautiful beaches, hiking trails in an old growth forest.

The Intensive is designed so that the students have a direct experience with Rosen Method through demonstration, hands-on experience, discussions, sharing and sharing circles. The demonstrations are a teaching time in the Rosen Method Bodywork.  The teacher shares what he/she is doing, seeing and feeling. During this time questions are invited. The sharing circles create a safe, supportive environment for one to speak from her/his own experience while being supported by the teachers. Also the support of the group enriches and deepens the process in a residential setting.

About Rosen Method Bodywork
Rosen Method Bodywork is unique in its use of sensitive gentle touch, which meets chronic muscle tension, allowing relaxation.  Rosen Method is a way to access feelings and experiences through the body. Often words are used to speak into what we see or feel, which supports the process. Through muscle tension, the body represses feelings and experiences that we cannot handle at the time of their occurrence. In this way we often forget what happened. Chronic tension, which once served as a protection, often becomes a barrier, a limitation to the full expression of our aliveness.  When the client relaxes deeply, they may connect with this tension in a way that allows them to experience and become aware of these barriers, therefore supporting the possibility of change at a deep level.
