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 their well-being.
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." Namaste, Radka

Camp for free in our park like yard on the Eel river.
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 somatic 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 emotional armoring, and promotes mental and
emotional clarity and wellbeing. Bruce's work offers a unique hands-on
synthesis of Transpersonal and Somatic Psychology.
The 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.
Learn to release shock, obsession, and trauma from the cellular memory of the body...
You will Learn a Unique Synthesis of Techniques Including:
* Transpersonal Psychology
* Somatic Psychology
* Holding Sacred Space
* Preventing Retraumatization
* Active Listening
* Resource Building
* Somatic Emotional Clearing
* Releasing trauma from the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight).
* Innervating the parasympathetic nervous system ( deep relaxation & wellbeing.)
* Dr Eugene Gendlin's profoundly effective Focusing Technique
* Sensation Based Awareness
* Etheric Plane Communication
* Rescuing the Inner Child
* Cutting Chords
* Envisioning Our Future Self.
** Prerequisite: Bodywork or counseling experience, spiritual and emotional maturity.
Cutting edge research reveals that body centered therapies have a
profound capacity to release stress, dissolve emotional armoring and
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 contradictory mental and
emotional impulses through the sympathetic nervous system (fight or
flight) into the musculature creating emotional armoring. Learn

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! "
