All our work will be with untreated cadavers – otherwise difficult to find – meaning no chemical smell and a much more ‘true-to-life’ view of fascia and tissue colouring. Untreated tissue moves through the same range of motion as the living body, and offers a very different perception of the behavior of fascial tissues.
These are not prosections or mere demonstrations – you are doing the dissecting yourself from Day 1. Tom and Todd will offer tutorials, explanations, or brief lectures on our collective findings. No previous experience with dissection is necessary to attend this course.
In 5 days you will go from skin to bone, including exploration of the superficial fascial layers, the myofascia and Anatomy Trains, the organs and their attachments, and the brain and nervous system. Pick your own project or we can help you find one – an opportunity to follow your own lights in the body, as well as from observing the fine skills of master dissector Todd Garcia who will be demonstrating on a dedicated table.
Emotional and spiritual aspects of the experience are very much respected – it’s a voyage of discovery, and an encounter with mortality. We understand and are supportive.
Nothing can replace doing dissection first hand, with your own hands and eyes. What is it you want to know about? What do you want to see for yourself?
