MovingVentures hosts life-changing educational programs at inspiring locations around the world. Our workshops, retreats and trainings are designed to help you discover and reach your highest potential. MV was founded in 1996 by world-renowned movement teacher Ellen Watson, who developed the Movement Arts Program at the historic Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California.
Decades of in-depth somatic arts study inform Ellen’s teachings: Esalen® Massage & Bodywork, Touching Essence, SpiritDance SoulSong and other moving meditation practices. She is one of only 20 teachers authorized to teach Esalen® Massage.
Our yearly massage certification training in Bali and unique scholarship program teach local people how to earn a living as they serve their community at Benih Kasih Orphanage, Bumi Sehat Birthing Center and Senang Hati, a center for disabled Indonesians.
