Discover Rosen Method: Upcoming Workshops

Rosen Method Bodywork is about opening the heart and freeing the soul.

“This work is about transformation – from the person we think we are to the person we really are.” Marion Rosen (Founder)

ROSENMETHOD_LOGO_2Rosen Method Bodywork is unique in its use of sensitive, non-manipulative touch and words to encourage physical and emotional awareness. In moments of deep relaxation, long-held feelings and memories may surface and be spoken. We can become aware of choices we made early in life around which we have shaped our lives. With this awareness, we may discover new possibilities for regaining freedom of movement and more authentic self-expression.

Rosen Method is an effective complement to psychotherapy, medical treatment, and alternative treatment modalities. It is simple and direct. Rosen Method can be a powerful tool for reestablishing our mind, body and spirit connections.


Workshops provide an opportunity for self-discovery, by giving participants opportunity to explore this work through demonstrations, movement, hands-on experience, discussion and personal sharing. The support of the group enriches and deepens the process.

Mariette Berinstein, Director of Rosen Method Cascadia Centre is a Certified Bodywork Senior Teacher and Practitioner.  She has trained and worked with a number of teachers, including Marion Rosen (founder) and Elaine Mayland, author of “Rosen Method: An Approach to Wholeness and Wellbeing Through the Body”.  Mariette discovered Rosen Method in 1989 while on her own healing journey.   In honouring the sacredness of this work, she creates an allowing, safe place for the individual to connect with their authentic, whole Self. As an artist, Mariette brings creativity and passion to her teaching and her practice.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Nov.5-7

Weekend Workshop with Dr. Eddie Berinstein, November 5-7, 2010, at Cascadia Centre, Roberts Creek.

Dr. Eddie Berinstein has been practicing Mindfulness and Insight Meditation since 1977 under the guidance of his teacher Anagarika Dhammadinna until her death in 1991. He has attended many Meditation Retreats and has led a Sunday evening meditation group with the Community Schools for many years.

More recently he has attended “Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction – Professional Training” workshops with Jon Kabat-Zinn. Eddie is now teaching MBSR Workshops on the Sunshine Coast and is presently an Instructor with the Center for Mindfulness. He has found that the cultivation of Mindfulness has enhanced all aspects of his physical, emotional and spiritual life, as well as his professional life as a Family Physician.

MBSR was started by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the late 1970’s and has since benefited thousands of people worldwide.

The cultivation of Mindfulness through Meditation Practice allows us to be more present for our moments as they unfold and to embrace the “full catastrophe” of our life in a more harmonious and balanced way. The primary purpose of the workshop is the cultivation of mindfulness into everyday life, thereby using it as a means and a tool to help deal with chronic pain, stress, and illness.

The workshop will consist of both formal and informal mindfulness practices including sitting, walking, loving kindness, and bodyscan meditation. There will be group dialogue and interaction as well as some guided body movement.
