Training Programme Dates

We offer the Level 1 training programme in the UK, along with a variety of workshop and class formats to respond to the varied needs and interests of those wanting to explore our work.

Workshops for the general public are offered each season, in Tamalpa Experience Weekends and in a series of Summer Workshops.

Tamalpa Training Programmes are offered in the spring of each year.  Next training programme starts April 7th 2022.

Level 1 Training Programme – Weekend Format

The 10 month long (11 weekends) training format begins in January 2021. Payment plans are available to support students with tuition fees. 

Participants meet for nine 3-day weekends(Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and for two 4-day intensives (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday).  All training  days are 10 AM to 5.30PM.  With the exception of Thursday 7th January, class starts at 1pm.  (Please note the training meets for two weekends in September 2021)

Between each weekend session students are given creative “home study” so that students can practice integrating the work into their daily lives. Exercises in the form of journal writing, drawings and short movement practices are utilized to both assimilate the material explored during each weekend and prepare for the following one.

Level 2 Training Programme dates

Level 2 Training Programme dates and registration please go direct to Tamalpa Institute site www.tamalpa.org


This training begins in Europe with a series of five rich and stimulating seminars from October through May.  Seminars vary in length from 4 – 5 days. An online learning component provides continuity throughout the training. Faculty is comprised of the European Tamalpa Branch Directors and advanced Tamalpa Practitioners.

The Level 2 training concludes with an inspiring 3-week summer intensive at the Halprins’ Mountain Home Studio in Kentfield, California. Mountain Home is the historic indoor-outdoor studio of Anna Halprin, and is the original site where the Tamalpa work began. Hidden away in the residential neighborhood of Kent Woodlands, the studio and outdoor deck are surrounded by redwood trees, views of Mount Tamalpais, surrounding hills, and the San Francisco Bay in the distance.

The summer session runs from 19 July – 7 August 2021 and is taught by Tamalpa California’s Co-founding Director, Daria Halprin with Senior Tamalpa Faculty Members Ken Otter, Rosario Sammartino, and Joy Cosculluela.
