Our playshop themes are still to be fully finalised, however we are planning a taster on Myofascial Release with Beth Beauchamp, and another playshop to be around verbal and non-verbal cues during pulsing.

For further information about workshops and attending, please contact our retreat team.

Our 2023 May Holistic Pulsing Gathering and AGM 12th -14th  May offers workshops for professional development and plenty of opportunities to share pulsing with peers of all skill levels, for relaxation and self growth. Everybody who has some Holistic Pulsing training is welcome, and we share laughter, good food and companionship. The Tasman Bay Villa, in Nelson is a central, warm and spacious venue, that we are guests at for the first time, after our fav venue of 10+ years grew too small for our gathering!

For further information about attending, please contact our retreat team.

Much more than an AGM, the Annual Gathering of Pulsers is like no other!

Fabulous venue with wide views of Tasman Bay and the snowy mountains beyond, nourishing food, lots of pulsing, useful professional development, good company, and lots of laughs. Wouldn't miss it for the world!” PJ

"In these uncertain times, taking time for ourselves is nourishing and balancing." BG

Mind Your Back! Play-Shop

Thomas Spring demonstrates an alternative way to pulse John Massey, looking after his own back. Thomas Spring brought his Feldenkrais background to empower us Holistic Pulsers to look after ourselves, at our "Play-Shop", May 2021.

"The HP professional development workshop offered participants a safe playground where experienced & inexperienced, took something away. For me, it was how incorporating the language-ing into the pulse can stimulate pulsees to reflect inwardly without going into their heads." RG
2018 HP Professional Development Gathering.
