Art of Zero Balancing



The Art of Zero Balancing continually evolves with our expanding experience and understanding of the body/mind relationships of energy and structure. The underpinnings of this course can be summarized by Dr. Smith’s words: “If you know energy, you need to know structure. If you know structure, you need to know energy. If you know both, you need to know how to put them together.” The focus of Art of Zero Balancing is on the integration and enhancement of a ZB session. The desired outcome is to have you move ZB from a practice form to an art form, and for your clients to have a deeper sense of personal health and well-being.

This is a residential Master Class retreat with Fritz, Jim & Michael.

All three will present their latest ZB thoughts, theories, fulcrums, and exercises to enhance and deepen your understanding and execution of Zero Balancing.  The goal is to expand your understanding of ZB to enhance your practice and your life.

Being a residential retreat is very special. It allows for hang out time, building community, swapping ZB’s anytime, and unknown exciting happenings. Included in the retreat will be personal growth exercises and a partial day of silence. Previous workshops at Mayacamas have shown the power and joy of being together in this magical place.

The Art of Zero Balancing gives you the opportunity to hear and practice Fritz Smith’s application of the principles of Zero Balancing. As you embody the principles of ZB, your sessions become your personal expression. This class is not eligible for the repeat tuition price.

You Will Learn:

  • Zero Balancing’s newest insights and progressions
  • Use of ZB protocol in relation to emotional states and needs
  • Use of ZB to help navigate the changing times
  • The integration of basic fulcrums with new expressions and uses

"The retreat will be held at the lovely Mayacamas Ranch in Northern California where we have held Teacher Training classes the last several years. The location is beautiful and relaxing, wth great views; great walks; a pool and a hot tub. The food has been been a highlight each year, with all diets accommodated and very delicious meals at every seating. Calistoga is in wine country, also known for its mud baths."
