The Rosen Residential Bodywork Intensive and Retreat 2023 is being taught on the resplendent grounds and gardens of the Mercy Center Burlingame located in San Mateo County, CA. 


The Mercy Center Burlingame is steeped in traditions attending to the deep love of community, spirituality, and care for the earth, and these rich traditions promise to support our Rosen community as we develop our capacity for self-awareness through gentle direct touch, joyful movement and dialog.
