Master Robert Larsen is a psychotherapist in private practice. He originally studied with Master Cheng Man Ching in New York City and has practiced the art of T’ai-Chi for over 40 years. Robert has experience in several martial arts, including 12 years of Aikido, and has taught Yoga, Zen meditation and Kundalini.

In his study of archetypal psychology and dream work, Robert has worked and studied closely with James Hillman, Arnold and Amy Mindell, and Robert Bosnak. He also studied with the Minnesota Jung Association and Pacifica Graduate Institute. Travels have taken Robert around the world to study with teachers and live with aboriginal villages.
