Residential Rosen Method Bodywork Intensives 

Calendar & Registration

The Residential Rosen Method Bodywork Intensives are four to six days long and are held at retreat centers chosen for their serene, natural environment, including St. Gabriel Retreat Center, near Scranton, PA, and Notre Dame Retreat House, Canandaigua, NY. Rosen Method Open Center will travel to train groups at their request.

Group work includes three hours of class in the mornings and three hours of practicum in the afternoons. Several evenings are spent together after dinner for a guided expressive arts project.

During the two hour break between lunch and practicum, you have the option of receiving a private bodywork session, or receiving a supervision if you are on the training track, or simply enjoy free time by yourself or with other participants.

The Intensives are designed for people seeking greater personal growth and for professionals seeking a more holistic approach. They are open to beginners and experts alike. We come together to practice acceptance of ourselves and of one another. We explore the possibility to let our guard down, open our minds and hearts, drop into our deeper selves and connect with each other. 

Our warm invitation to: 
  • Anyone in need of retreat time to unwind and reconnect with yourself
  • Anyone longing for more authentic connections with others
  • People wanting a personal, practical experience of the body-mind-spirit connection 
  • Mental health professionals, nurses, medical staff, clergy and spiritual counselors looking for complementary skills
  • People interested in becoming Certified Rosen Method Practitioners  
Our intention is to present and demonstrate: 
  • How awareness is the fundamental agent of the healing process
  • How being grounded in embodiment leads to presence, presence to the moment, to one's self and to others
  • The art of giving and receiving the Rosen Method's listening and attuned touch 
  • The art of allowing
  • The art of moving-to-music from the inside out
Intensives include:

Discussions of the Rosen Method basic principles:

  • Origin of unconscious muscle tension and how they limit our potential
  • Impact of thoughts and emotions on holding patterns
  • Recognizing the natural breath 
  • How to create space for the development of new neural pathways

Demonstrations of:

  • How to locate the tensions that block the free flow of breath or life energy
  • How to make contact with inquiring hands to connect with the unconscious
  • How to reach for the core of the self beneath the holdings 
  • How to follow the breath as the guide to a deeper self
  • How to give therapeutic non-analytical verbal support 

Guided practicum periods every afternoon, bringing the mornings' teachings and insights into practice by giving and receiving a bodywork session, with a different partner every day.
