Online Foundation Course


Courses have already begun for 2019. Please contact the office to be considered for future courses.

Beginning in February 2019, Melissa and the Golden Bridge team will be offering a monthly webinar for six consecutive months (February – Summer 2019). The teachings of each session will be guided and informed by the contents of each cycle described within Youth On Fire: Birthing a Generation of Embodied Leaders. Melissa will be offering this material in a way that is engaging, offering experiential opportunities throughout. Questions will be fielded at the end of each webinar.

This course will be an essential part of the SomaSource training path. It will also offer a new opportunity to hear Melissa break down the transformative work of Golden Bridge, giving you in-depth perspective into the art and magic of this life-changing work. It offers a cognitive understanding of the work we have been doing together for decades.

If you wish to be included in this learning journey, please make a commitment to the entire series. This online learning opportunity will require reading the relevant chapter of Youth On Fire in preparation for each webinar.
