Teaching Faculty

Karen Peters

Karen Peters, M.Div (Union Theological Seminary, NYC), has spent her life exploring a ministry of embodiment: how we creatures of earth and God’s breath feel and move and have our being in God, how sinking into our embodied experiences of ourselves can nurture, restore, and enliven us, and bring us into community and relationship with all of creation. As a Senior Rosen Method Movement Teacher and as an Alexander Technique Teacher, Karen works with how people inhabit their bodies in largely unconscious ways, and helps them bring an interoceptive awareness to themselves that can be an endless source of self-discovery, wholeness, and connection. Karen teaches movement classes and workshops locally and online, and trains Rosen Method Movement Teachers through the Rosen Method Berkeley Center and the Rosen Method Institute of Canada. She lives in Napa, CA with her husband and two sons.

      Holden Village is a community where your questions are valued and encouraged. Most programs led by visiting teaching faculty occur during the summer months. However, Holden also invites faculty to teach sessions for special events and retreats throughout the rest of the year.
