Wellsprings Trainings

with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood

These training programs are designed to give participants both a theoretical and experiential understanding of Continuum as a practice, as well as helping them learn how to offer this practice as a support to others, and teach these principles in a group context.

The goal of these trainings is to educate and empower healers in many different fields to be able to use and offer this work to support the health of their clients and communities. As such, these trainings are especially appropriate for those who are being mentored by a member of the Continuum Teacher Association, those who are on a teacher track with Continuum, or those who wish to enrich their somatic practice with the methods offered by Continuum.

As a response to the enormous health challenges we face today:

  • The impact of environmental pollution and toxicity
  • Electro-magnetic distortions
  • Accelerating cost of health care and medication
  • Ramifications of our sedentary work and lifestyles
  • Societal upheavals

We are being asked to discover new ways of implementing and sustaining health.

Wellsprings of Continuum offers opportunities to move beyond all current health models, examining the dynamics of trauma and what’s needed for vibrant and alive self-expression.

Health practitioners know that non-responsive tissue represents a self-limiting stance and will determine the paucity or amplitude of available nourishment.  This is a determining factor in one’s state of health.  In the Wellsprings program we will look at how the body thrives on the constant stream of self-nourishment, i.e., the “flow of information” which is manifest through the arrangements of fluid molecules as expressed in our cells and connective tissues.

"The 'body' is a profound orchestration of many qualities and the textures of movement - interpenetrating tones of fertile play waiting to be incubated.. We inhabit a sea of intelligent life beckoning us to enter."
- Emilie Conrad

The goal of these trainings is to offer aspects of Wellsprings of Continuum especially designed for those who are dedicated to the Art of Health.

  • The sound streams that have been developed in Continuum over the past forty years have been consolidated, to address the most salient issues of client concern.  The various uses of sound and the understanding of the appropriateness of application will be thoroughly taught and mentored.
  • Breath and tissue structure cannot be separated.  Tissue structure will accommodate various adaptive strategies that then stifle and limit the ability of breath to “move”.  Adaptive patterns are styled into our breath maintaining shock and trauma over a lifetime.  We believe it is naïve to impose breathing exercises on anyone without liberating the underlying inhibiting tissue structure. Breathing explorations in Wellsprings of Continuum are designed to enhance awareness of the movement and sensations of breath throughout the body. Wellsprings of Continuum Anatomy teaches and explores this complex network as well as the physiology of respiration.
  • We will engage with ourselves as an extension of billions of years of planetary process, providing us with an ability to encompass rich and varied probabilities and outcomes not currently realized.
  • We will learn through our own body experience the implications of varied “holding patterns” and their application to client concerns.
  • Pre and post-natal adaptive patterns maintain the basic imprint of an organism’s engagement with life, and manifest in tissue structure and breath.
  • Pre and post care as a result of cancer treatment, neuromuscular compromises, stroke, cranial disorders, respiratory – cardiac challenges, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and auto-immune disorders live on within the body’s pattern after the event.
  • Wellsprings of Continuum principles will be taught so that participants can integrate the Wellsprings approach into their private practice and for the enhancement of client treatment outcomes.
  • Wellsprings participants will learn how:
    - Differentiating tissue will create a higher order of function due to an increase in the flow of information, in the mutability and permeability of tissue and in respiratory and nutritional delivery.
    - To coach their clients and develop appropriate sequences that encourages the client to discover their own healing abilities.
  • Giving yourself two weeks of Continuum exploration is a rare, life changing meeting with self in today’s pace of life.


This training will be located at a retreat center in Washington State. Exact location to be announced once the training is scheduled.

The Foundations of Continuum program will give you an understanding of the historical development of Continuum and a specific knowledge of how Continuum modalities are designed for innovation. You will leave with a full sense of the scope of this work and what distinguishes Continuum from other somatic practices. The 14 days of embodied practice will deepen your ability for self-regulation, health and self-care. After the completion of the Practitioner Training you will have the skills to integrate Continuum into your private practice with clients.

You will receive a Wellsprings of Continuum Certificate of Completion after each module. In addition, if you complete Module 2 and go through a review process with Gael/Robert, you will be listed on our website as a Wellsprings of Continuum Practitioner. Some additional mentoring may be required before the official listing as a practitioner is approved.

The training hours can be used as Continuing Education Credits with many organizations, such as NCBTMB and ISMETA, as well as preparation for the Continuum Teacher Training and membership in the Continuum Teacher Association.

Please note: The Wellsprings of Continuum certificate does not authorize an individual as a Continuum Movement Teacher.


Ongoing Community:
Participants of these programs are encouraged to establish and maintain a peer group for the exchange of information and experiences, through emails and yearly meetings.

Module 1: Foundations of Continuum
with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood

In these two weeks we will cover the basic principles, values and modalities of Continuum.

This training is appropriate for those who are being mentored by a Continuum Teacher Association member or on a teacher track with Continuum and for those who wish to imbue their somatic practice with the modalities of Continuum and its approach to preparing the tissue and bringing clients into participation with their own underlying health. This two-week immersion into the practices of Continuum is a way to get beyond the distractions that compromise the depths of one's own personal practice. The embodied learning of Continuum concepts coalesces the many different themes, styles and approaches that are expressed from workshop to workshop in order to ground one in the full understanding of the orchestration of this profound body of work, a moving philosophy.

Module 2: Practitioner Training
with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood

Following the 14 days of Foundational preparation, there will be an additional 6 days of Practitioner practice. In this segment of training, students will be integrating the first segment of training by giving 'one on one' sessions to others. This supervised process allows for the questions, the feedback and the discussions that do not happen in one's personal practice. Should you be a Wellsprings Training graduate and wish to take this module without the proceeding two weeks, this is an excellent way to attain Continuing Education credits, and for those who are being mentored.

Module 3: Teacher Practicum
with Robert Litman and Gael Rosewood

Following in the tradition of the first Teacher Trainings that Susan Harper offered with Emilie Conrad, this 6 day class allows teachers-in-training to learn, play and move together and to share in the initiation of teaching each other. This will be a safe environment to explore the challenges of stepping into the teaching role and to allow that process to be tended. Each segment of preparing a class will be practiced and discussed from making meaning through words to demonstrating through movement, from creating and teaching lay-outs to managing group dynamics. In the event you are ready for the next step, this training prepares you to present a class in front of an ad hoc Review Pod of CTA teachers at a teacher gathering. Alternatively this training can provide the video of your teaching for review by your mentors in the Continuum Teacher Association. While the Foundations of Continuum 14 day training is highly recommended in order to bring an understanding of the history and breadth of Continuum practices, it is possible that this training may be taken by itself with the recommendation of your mentors.
