The program curriculum is divided into four stages. The core 1400 hour program takes 2 years to complete with an additional 1-2 years for those who wish to gain master teacher certification:
June 3-15 + June 17-22 (optional module), 2019. The introduction summer intensive module is highly experiential-based and is designed for anyone with an interest in learning more about the basic bodymind techniques employed in Spiral Praxis. Students will be introduced to basic somatic movement activities, internal flow techniques, and bodywork/touch principles. Due to requests, this summer’s intensive will emphasize physical rehabilitation techniques for injury and chronic pain.

The summer intensive will also be extended with an optional module for people who are interested in learning more about advanced areas of Spiral Praxis, including new areas of physical embodiment and fractal meditation. These subjects represented some of the latest advances of Spiral Praxis and will be of intense interest to those who are interested in learning about the cutting-edge of somatic possibility.
