"I won't pass up any opportunity to study
with Bruce and receive the amazing blessing of his work, knowledge, and
presence! Taking a seminar with him is like a spiritual retreat as much
as an educational professional workshop. His knowledge is vast and
unique and so valuable...
I have studied Polarity Therapy (energy
balancing) and recently the Somatic Emotional Clearing work with Bruce.
The work is profound and helps to clear long-held blockages that get
lodged in the physical & energetic bodies, after traumatic
experiences to the mind or nervous system. The work addresses the
nervous system and helps clients to get back into a relaxed
parasympathetic state and out of the fight-or-flight sympathetic
The recent work I studied was even more
profound, as it is basically soul retrieval, helping the client to
return to a state of awareness and embodiment of their inherent
divinity. I think this work can really help people to thrive and come
into a state of gratitude and abundance, and I am so excited to begin
sharing it with my community."
"Bruce's teachings and
practical work is of incredible value to anyone who is searching and
willing to take their health into their hands and be responsible for
This was my third course with Bruce, and apparently, I haven't had
enough. The work he is sharing changed my life for better and forever
on many levels. What we went through was not just deep emotional
healing and transformation but also personal journey breakthrough.
I am way more connected to my soul, I understand the patterns that are
holding me back, and I also have a 'Driver's manual to navigate through
life challenges. I am in charge of my experiences.
I feel like the whole course was equally for my business as for my
growth. Also, the friendships with other participants are lifelong and
on very deep level. We are still supporting each other and sharing our
On top of that, I learned and got reminded of the importance of being
PRESENT in all aspects of life. I can't wait to share all I have
mastered during these three weeks with my clients, my family and anyone
who will cross my path.
Thanks to Bruce's presence I am better, more connected and awake
person. I am more aware and very very grateful. Daily habits and chores
can be done with grace and intention.
Bruce has been my teacher for several years now. His wisdom is based on
the Truth, kindness, generosity and love. I will take every opportunity
to be in his presence and learn from him again and again."

Somatic Psychology: Cutting
edge research reveals that body centered therapies have a profound
capacity to release stress, dissolve emotional armoring and heal trauma.
Trauma is largely held on the somatic level. Therapies centered on the
mind and emotions are generally ineffective in addressing the somatic level.
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.
emphasis is on compassion, presence and vulnerability as attitudes
which support a safe space in which the client has permission to heal.
We will work with the client as a person, respecting the pathos of their
life as a conscious evolving spiritual being. We will approach healing
as a creative process that is guided by higher intelligence. We will
facilitate a sacred space for releasing the past, quieting the mind and
healing the heart.
Somatic Emotional Clearing can be practiced within a massage or bodywork session
or with the client sitting in a chair or lying on a yoga mat.

"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!"
Shopping in India
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! "
