Class Schedule

Presence (state of mindfulness) is the most powerful tool practitioners and clients can experience in their sessions. No matter what forms of bodywork are used, a growing facility with presence will take practitioners and clients further than any technique. Presencing creates mutual involvement by both clients and practitioners in the sessions. This helps the practitioner open up deeper intuitive and assessment skills, and work with much less effort. Clients become aware of transformative changes happening inside of them and in their lives. Both are opening the door to the power of presence as a healing force in life. Presencing occurs when persons realizes that they can choose to be present through body centered (somatic) awareness.

"Jack's method of healing is wonderful. I thank him for his work, which has had a much more lasting effect on me than anything else I have done."
~ Ginny Keith, Scottsdale, Arizona

"I was traumatized by a surgical procedure that resulted in a great deal of pain. Jack taught me to manage my pain and to understand how my body, mind and spirit work together for my healing. An unexpected result was accessing my creativity in a new way."
~ M.J.L., Seattle, Washington

"I continue to study with Jack because of his ability to communicate the essence and essentials of 'presence' which is vital to the healing experience."
~ Lucy Baker, LMP, Seattle, Washington

"I was eighty-two years old when I had my first massage with Jack. Over the years, I have experienced the power of healing touch. Now, at ninety, as I look back over our time together, I realize how much I've been able to open to my own inner guidance."
