Cascadia Centre – Roberts Creek BC


ROSEN METHOD is conscious touch. A gentle, respectful, hands-on form of bodywork. Working with chronically tight muscles, Rosen Method Bodywork encourages physical and emotional awareness. In moments of deep relaxation, long held feelings and memories may surface and be spoken. Clients often become aware of choices they made early in life around which they have shaped their lives. When this awareness happens, they discover new possibilities for regaining freedom of movement and more authentic self-expression.

– Senior Teacher & Founder of Essential Motion
Karen is the Founder of Essential Motion, a somatic-based coaching process. She maintains a private practice in California and she holds a Masters Degree in Counseling and Dance Therapy. Karen leads workshops in the U.S. and Europe in addition to doing training, counseling and coaching. A student of Vipassana meditation, Karen’s primary focus is to empower people to inhabit their bodies with more grace, vitality and power.

These Intensives are for professional training, and for personal self-discovery. They give participants an opportunity to explore this work through demonstrations, movement, hands-on experience, witnessing, discussion and personal sharing in a retreat-like setting. The support of the group enriches and deepens the process.

Karen Roeper

“There is a power that comes from contacting the self on a visceral level—a power that leads to an opening of the heart and a return to who we truly are. I facilitate this transformation through movement—the forgotten language of the soul.” — Karen Roeper

Judyth Shanley said: “Sacred and magical, a weekend of intimacy, laughter, play and harmonious sharing in a way that is new every time. Our latest weekend, our Circle of Women Retreat, was so special. The mix of old friends and new created a unique field of presence and nurturing, and an opportunity to organically weave our experiences through shared activities and stories. I delighted in being held by the house, sumptuously fed by Jonita and ultimately rejuvenated through loving sisterhood. Thank you Circle of women.”

Deanne Mineau said: “I have just returned from a wonderful full-body massage and I’m eating a delicious salad for lunch.  I’ve been bringing more daily personal routines into my life, since I have fewer outside obligations at the moment.  So, I’m riding my exercise bike, writing at home and with my amazing group of fellow writing travellers, doing Rosen Movement classes twice a week, checking on our returning eagles in their nest close to the house, pruning the raspberries.  I’ve begun holding drumming circles in my living room on Fridays, and am learning to let go of performance anxieties as we progress into the unknown energies of our group. Geordie and I have been planning some for our August wedding.  I am still working with Mariette at Cascadia, on a project by project basis, a few hours a week.
I’m watching an eagle out my window, in full glide circle on the updraft, in the noon sun, his white head and tail feathers as brilliant as the fresh snow on the mountains across the Straight.
I am learning that it is essential for me to spend more time Being, not Doing.”

Remarking on the event, Carol Sill said:  “Wild Woman Enchanted gave a beautiful demonstration of how the Wild Woman Mystery Card reading is enhanced with the corresponding essential oils. Insightful and intuitive understanding of the meaning of the cards is then expanded through the power of scent and colour to create a lasting impact and resonance to help you remember what the cards revealed.”

New member Teri Arcand said, “So looking back today, how do I see the  awesome weekend experience with our  ‘Circle of Women’?      Well, simply, it was a ‘real’ weekend spent with ‘real’ women sharing ‘real’ lives, hopes and dreams. It is the uniqueness of each one and the generosity of all that is gift wrapped in the tiny sparkles of love shared.   ….it is this that brightens the inside corners of our lives.”

Tracey Knihnitski couldn’t make it but sent this message: “I too am so sorry I missed this soulful weekend! Sure could use some women’s collective creative energies!  Three jobs occupying my energy these days! Grateful for the opportunities – hopeful for “me” time!  SOON! Thank you for holding the circle – hoping to see you soon!”

Marielle Geoffroy is still bringing French language and culture to her college students.

Watch for more updates in the year to come.

Featured : CASCADIA RETREATS

This retreat will focus on how to re-open access to the mystery of the wild and re-new our selves to re-discover, re-source, re-create and re-member who we really are as individuals, as a community, and as a world of women. As part of the ever-evolving nature of these gatherings, I have invited my dear friend and intimacy training colleague, Deepa Narayan, to join as my special guest.
