OverviewI have been creating these workshops since 1994, and they have been intensely appreciated and transformational experiences for all involved. My approach is to work with group participants as whole persons coming to a deeper awareness of themselves and the wonder that is the human body through their encounter with each other and the donor’s gift. The workshop is fun, and also challenging. These workshops are excellent opportunities for anyone who has studied anatomy in their professional training, and who uses that knowledge in a hands-on practice, to deepen anatomical knowledge, palpation skills, and love of life.

FormatThe workshops meet from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday. Expect the first hour of each day to be committed to group discussion and reflection. Under the instructor's guidance, participant teams of 8 per cadaver accomplish specific dissection goals each day, layer by layer, to reveal the whole form. I prefer to work with 7 or 8 participants at a table whenever possible, as my particular goals and dissection methods are best facilitated and accomplished with this many hands at work on each team. We are studying integral anatomy, as opposed to regional anatomy, and participants will appreciate the difference.

PrerequisitesThese workshops are fun but also intensive undertakings on many levels, requiring personal maturity, professional decorum, good health and physical stamina: consent of instructor is required, based on a twenty minute phone conversation. New participants are also expected to watch the Integral Anatomy Series prior to attending the course. The DVD series is sent to first time enrollees upon submission of course deposit. For UK listings resumes are required as well. The workshops are designed for professionals who have completed their training and engaged in the practice of their trade. A ready working knowledge of the language of anatomy and the map of the human body is the foundation upon which this course is built. Together, we will explore the territory. Persons with disabilities may inquire as to how their study can best be facilitated. Somanautics Workshops, Inc., does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
