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, Larry Goldfarb 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.

                                                                                                         


SPECIAL NOTE: Most of our workshops are open to the public. In addition, starting in 2017, the annual AHSE Convention will open its doors to a limited number of individuals trained in the methods and tradition of Thomas Hanna, but who are not Hanna Somatic Education® Certified Practitioners. As Allied Somatics Practitioners, applicants who are accepted for attendance and who become Associate Members will enjoy unrestricted access to all training and recalibration activities during the convention.

To be eligible, Allied Somatics Practitioners must have completed a formal Somatics training program with a Hanna Somatic Education® Certified Practitioner. If you would like to attend the AHSE convention as an Allied Somatic professional, please send a brief letter of intent to the AHSE Convention Hosting Committee Co-Chair at jadeforest@comcast.net. A representative from the Convention Hosting committee will contact you with an application packet.
