Deane Juhan eloquently brings alive and makes accessible and intriguing the subjects of anatomy and physiology. These workshops allow us to develop new images and new language in order to more deeply understand the anatomical, physiological, and philosophical aspects of the body-mind.

These workshops are designed to address the particular needs and concerns of bodyworkers of all kinds: yoga teachers and students, pilates and movement instructors and students, and any one interested in understanding more about the body.

The Body As the Landscape of Perception: Our bodies and their relationship to our minds are the windows through which we view our world.

A large part of the work of self-development and healing is the cleansing of these windows so that we can perceive a reality that is wider, more vivid, more complete and unified, and one which offers its rich potentials to us more readily.

Jason Brown, a contemporary neurologist and long-time student of Zen Buddhism, has developed over many years of clinical observation a theory of consciousness that is the most exciting I have come across. It is the only one that offers a description of how my mind works that corresponds to my actual experience of it. His is neurology of the soul, and he offers a concrete understanding of how that soul is grounded in the immediacy of the body’s processes.

This is a 2.5-hour Lecture
