AHSE Annual Convention

Our Annual Convention, generally 4 days in length, has something for everyone!

Association members use the convention as an opportunity to sharpen our skills, learn new things, and continue exploring our work as a community.

Past keynote speakers and daylong Intensive presenters have included: Deane Juhan, Judith Aston, Mary Bond, Anat Baniel, Esther Gokhale, and other pioneers and teachers in mind/body and movement education. Topics presented at the convention will be of interest to body workers, doctors, dancers, somatic therapists, and anyone interested in the body, healing, and change.

The daylong intensive and many of the workshops are open to the public.

Mark your calendars for the 2016 Preconvention:  April 21;  Convention: April 22, 23, 24.  Early registration deadline APRIL 1, 2016.
