Making travel plans for a Jan. 29 training with Dean Marson and a contingent of students/practitioners from Japan. One more step towards my 500-hr certification.  Is anyone here going to be at Esalen that week?

It was a great class with Robin...and such a joy to be around people interested in Esalen massage (I feel somewhat isolated here in Western Massachusetts!).


Asheville is a hoot...street musicians/performers jockeying for position all over the downtown area, songbirds that start at about 4:30 AM, and restaurants/cafes of every sort.

Sounds like Esalen Lee.  Glad you had such a rich time.  I will be teaching there in May with Ellen Watson if you would like to join us for a transformation experience you can contact me or Ellen for more information. 


I am also teaching many Esalen massage workshops in Asheville this year.... come play with me!

I just got back from 10 days as Esalen. What happened?


I spent 7 days in an excellent abdominal/core class: deep work on the iliopsoas, rectus abdominus, QL, hip rotators, etc. Learned a cool self-care technique called TRE . Soaked a couple times a day in the baths. Met with my mentor for the 500-hr certification. Gave and received massages. Met Robin's brother, Jayson, and played congas with him on the deck. Was faced daily by my own emotional static. Danced tango one night around the tables in the dining hall with another seminarian. Received a transcendent massage from a long-time crew member . Sang some kirtan. Ate great food, hung out with people and made some new friends.


All in all, another transformative experience. Any body worker who's interested in Esalen massage really should sign up and go out there for a class. There's so much going on!

Wow everyone! There you have three wonderful choices to experience an introduction or refresher in Esalen massage. I hope you are able to join Ellen,
Robin or Laurie and Oliver toward the end of this week as we all explore and share the beautiful and effective healing art of Esalen massage. We hope to see you there!
