Kia korero tō tinana katoa.  Let your whole body speak.

Rouel Cazanjian Advanced Ortho-Bionomy Instructor Los Angeles, USA

40 credits.

Join us for SIX (not five) days of immersion in Ortho-Bionomy—inclusive of fun, learning, accommodation, tuition and fully catered.
Kia kōrero tō tinana katoa. Let your whole body speak.  We are listening.

Bones, joints, skin, muscles, fascia, arteries, nerves, organs, and fluids all have their own individual messages to share. They also speak as a group, like all the players in an orchestra playing individually and yet creating an orchestral sound as a whole. These “sounds” can be in tune of out of tune.
In order to listen, one must have the ‘tactile ears’ to hear the body speak, with its individual parts and as a whole. Then and only then can the hands communicate back to the body in a way that can be received. It is this dialog process that transforms chaotic states into orderly states.
We are also part of a larger orchestra, called humanity and other even larger orchestras, called nature, the universe, and the multiverse, all of which have their individual expression and can also speak as a whole. The same process of healing applies: Listening, hearing, understanding, speaking back, noticing that effect, learning from it, and going back to listening and speaking is the sacred process of communication in nature.
Discord and suffering happen when this sacred communication is faulty, broken and does complete itself. All dis-ease is a result of lack of communication.
As advanced practitioners, we are trained with our hands to improve this communication. We do this by embracing the faulty communication and creating a healthy dialogue.

NB: A usual requirement for RESIDENTIAL is Phase 5 and Phase 6, (unless special dispensation from the Instructors). Phase 5 and Phase 6 is offered in 2024 if you have not yet completed these, or want to be fully refreshed before the Residential.

Residential fee is $2300 with an early bird $2095 (by 30 June 2024).
(SPECIAL DEAL: pay early bird (30/06/2024) for Residential and Pre-Residential course for $2490, a saving of $230).
