Touch of Presence®

 

Giorgia is currently teaching these live courses in the locations listed below. The Introduction Course offers the foundation for understanding Touch of Presence® and the Biodynamic Cranial Approach (BCA). It’s the perfect way to orient to this work and also benefit the most from the other courses. The Group Intensive Course offers a deep, year-long immersion as a cohort of students. The Intensive is for those who wish to learn to offer this hands-on modality or integrate it into their current practices and daily life. The other courses provide portals of experiential insights into the BCA principles of Touch of Presence®.

This English language page is the most comprehensive and provides information about all courses, dates, locations, venues, and local contacts. Clickable links take you to registration/payment pages, flyers, lodging reservation pages, and local travel information.

 

Those courses offered outside English-speaking countries are specifically also listed on the respective pages translated into German, Czech, and Polish.
