Ethics: Healthy Boundaries in Energy Work  

Saturday, January 21 from 9am – 1pm

$110
4 hrs – NCBTMB approved

Instructor: Ellen Santistevan
Location: Albuquerque School of Healing Arts

Healthy Boundaries in Energy Work is a highly experiential ethics class, designed for you to actually learn to palpate the energy fields of the body — not only for your client but also for yourself. In this way, you will learn to have greater clarity about yourself and your client, avoid enmeshment and entanglement, conserve your own energies, and maintain boundaries in a healthy, respectful, and non judgmental way.  This class is a prerequisite for “Developing your Listening Hands”

Developing Your Listening Hands Pt.1: Energy Body and Cranial Rhythms

Saturday, January 21 from 2pm – 6pm
Sunday, January 22 from 9am – 6pm

$325
12 Hrs – NCBTMB approved

Instructor: Ellen Santistevan
Location: Albuquerque School of Healing Arts

The “Listening Hands” classes were developed to give all manual therapists the opportunity to learn and to integrate the mindful listening and feeling experience into whatever style of bodywork you are already practicing. Subtle listening through the hands is a learnable skill, and in this class, you will discover and develop your abilities of nonverbal communication and bring greater depth, subtlety and effectiveness to your massage and bodywork practice. I welcome you in the journey of deepening your understanding and skills and bringing them into your practice.  Prerequisite: Healthy Boundaries in Energy Work

Developing Your Listening Hands Pt.2: Fascial movement and Visceral motility

Saturday, February 18-19, 10 am – 5 pm

$325
12 Hrs – NCBTMB approved

Instructor: Ellen Santistevan
Location: Albuquerque School of Healing Arts

Building on the skills developed in part 1, you will learn to travel along the fascia and connect with the abdominal viscera to detect and witness for restrictions and scarring that contribute to musculoskeletal dysfunction.  Simply contacting and listening can allow the body to reorganize in more helpful ways and ease chaotic compensation patterns without using force.  

Prerequisites:  Healthy Boundaries in Energy Work and Developing Your Listening Hands, part 1, or with permission of the instructor
