Immerse yourself in a month of physical/energetic training.

The training includes chi cultivation and lots of breathing as a platform to both detox and invigorate the whole being.  We address a segment of the body each day and research through function, improvisation, touch and energy work. This will include puzzles and writing as a means of working the imagination muscles.  I bring a toolbox and we play, inviting new possibilities each day.

“You actually start to become more present in your life and the past doesn’t project into your future the same way. By getting your bars run you are literally changing the probabilities of future possibilities. You start to perceive the possibility of functioning from perceiving, knowing, being and receiving.”

– Gary Douglas, Access Consciousness
