“My muscles soften and my breath slows when I reflect on the gift of Rebecca’s teaching. She offers specific resources to engage the wisdom in our bodies. Her deep well of specific thought and movement practices enable us to cultivate the awareness that resides throughout our whole being, and integrate it with the awareness we think resides in our minds. I return often to insights I gained in her workshops.”
Upcoming Retreat: Being Your Own Softest Place to Land
with Rebecca Harrison & Suniti Dernovsek.
You are invited to join Suniti and Rebecca for a 2-day dive into being with what is.
Every piece of your experience as a person lives in your body. Turning towards yourself, into your body, can be beautiful, layered, joyous and tender. In our practices together we increase our capacity to show up for what is with kindness and appreciation.
In this 2-day retreat, we will practice in a beautiful studio and outside with the trees. By connecting to the earth and gravity, we remember what holds us. From a place of resource and connectivity we practice noticing how we are treating ourselves. We hold space for each and every part of our experience in our lively bodies.
We cannot help having preferences and judgements of what is happening in any given moment. Even harshness comes up sometimes unbidden. But we can take a momentary pause, with the support of the woods and a warm group of people, to remember that there is space for everything that comes up. And in that kind space, we come back into more ease, with ourselves, our fellow human beings, and life as it is.
Can we be our own softest place to land?

“Rebecca approaches teaching from a centered and curious place. It helps me settle into a place which allows me to get more out of the class. Rebecca curates the classes well so that they are balanced between listening, practicing helpful exercises and having good discussions in one on ones and small groups.”
Self-Paced Classes Via Recordings:
1. Regulation in the Nervous System:
A regulated nervous system is one where you can feel what’s happening clearly, and respond well without excessive fear or reactivity. It is the physiological state of resilience from which you can make clear choices. In this class we will learn to recognize the state of our nervous system in any given moment and use tools to come back to regulation when we have gone into fight/flight or freeze.
Includes 12 hrs of class time via audio recording, class handouts, and exercises to do on your own. Cost: $195. Click here to order the class.
2. Deepening Empathy and Compassion:
Directly connecting with our feelings and desires with kindness is key to returning us to wellness when we are struggling. It also connects us with our gifts and passions. Developing compassion and empathy for others keeps our hearts open and helps us relate to others with more wisdom and understanding. In this class we will deepen our compassion for ourselves and others both as an end to itself, as well as to create the platform for action that stems from open-heartedness rather than fear or reactivity.
Includes 16 hrs of class time via audio recording, class handout, and exercises to do on your own. Cost: $255. Click here to order the class.

“Rebecca’s workshops offer a mature, generous, and warm experience where I feel I am being consciously invited to do clear self contemplation. The courses have led me in a deeply embodied way to reflect on how I respond to daily life. Each class I leave with a clear study of how I might execute change with the goal of accessing a more grounded and resourced relationship with myself and the world around me.”
