Teaching & Tutoring

Discovery. Support. Integration.

    Can you know what is emerging, yet keep peace while others discover for themselves? Learn to lead in a nourishing manner. Learn to lead without being possessive. Learn to be helpful without taking credit. Learn to lead without coercion.
from the Tao Te Chingas adapted by J. Heider inThe Tao of Leadership

As my satisfaction with massage practice has deepened over the years, so has my joy in facilitating learning in others. Since 1983, I've taught courses and workshops, given presentations, and tutored individuals and couples. A partial list of topics and courses follows.

Please email or call to discuss your teaching, facilitation, or presentation needs. I'd love to share my enthusiasm for knowledge about health and the human body with you.
