Gary Norfolk

I began developing Zenergetics Somatics in 1985. Since then I have been teaching throughout Australia. I began training with my foundation teacher Julie Henderson PhD, Zapchen.com in 1979. I completed a formal 3 year Somatic Psychotherapy Training with Julie as the principal trainer in 1995. Zapchen Somatics (zapchen.com) & Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga form the basis of Zenergetics. 

It is my pleasure and delight to teach Zenergetics Somatic Yoga Meditation.

When I'm teaching I weave together mindfulness of body, presence of mind & being, encouraging loving presence for self & others, emotional connection with the breath and the free expression of sounds. I support students to trust their feeling connection with their body and their unique creative expression and their ability to improvise and to allow themselves to experience pleasure. A deep trust in the pace and rhythm of their unfolding process naturally emerges in a spirit of joyfulness. As Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron has so beautifully said it: "Watering the seed of Practice with playfulness."
