The Art of Effortless Power

Art of Effortless Power One (Spring Retreat)

In Part One of this month-long Retreat we devote two weeks to study the Art of Effortless Power. The practice and study of this Art goes beyond learning about skillful interaction and effortless power, it deepens one’s consciousness and awareness of their own body and improves how the body functions. In a new approach to teaching, Ralston also intends to use the Art as a means to reveal limits in the students’ experience and to create new openings for experience outside these limits assisting participants in their personal growth while they develop greater skills and learning about an effortless body-being and effective interaction.

Art of Effortless Power Two (Spring Retreat)

Week two continues with the work of week one. If you haven’t done at least one workshop in the Art with master Ralston you should start with week one and continue on with week two if interested. The organic nature of this new approach is to tailor what’s studied to fit the needs of the participants, but certain groundwork always needs to be developed in any study and is not likely to be repeated in the second week.

The cost of the martial sections includes instruction, room and board, a huge space with good mats. For those with the courage to participate in the consciousness work, the cost includes room and board plus a guided tour of your own consciousness by one of the most riveting and focused teachers you will ever encounter.
