Many Frequently Asked Questions about Gil, this site, and Explorer subscriptions are answered below!
Well, that's a good question that I am constantly reformulating the answer to as I develop as a human being! For the purposes of this site, I am the developer of a field of study which I call "integral anatomy." To that end, I have been teaching in the lab, lecture hall and online since 1995 to professionals from the whole range of healing and fitness modalities. Between 2005-2008 I produced The Integral Anatomy Series, 4 feature length video volumes documenting the big picture overview of my whole person, whole body approach to anatomy with on-camera dissection. I am the author of several books, and I am presently in the post production stage of the "Anatomy from A to Z" project, a comprehensive, and very detailed on-camera tour of human anatomy based on my integral, whole body approach. I am presently based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, (thus the pretty pictures on the site of the beautiful natural surroundings here) where in addition to working full time in it's laboratory, I also preside over the Board of Directors of the Institute for Anatomical Research, a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation focused on expanding the study of integral anatomy through cadaver studies. With my partner in all things Rachel Scott, I am committed to developing this site to be a premiere educational resource for individuals and institutions to explore the human form in depth.
This site contains all manner of videos and courses for somanuts (soma = body, naut = explorer) to explore the wonders of the human body! Most of my courses instruct through the vehicle of cadaver dissection, through we also have plenty of inspirational and educational content that does not! The content on this site is an excellent and comprehensive companion for professionals in the massage, yoga, chiropractics, and bodywork fields, as well as folks who are simply curious to enrich their personal understanding. All are welcome!

In these live video calls, I address topics of interest ranging over issues of anatomical import to life in general, sometimes with the company of special guests. Subscribers who choose to join the call enjoy the live interaction with one another, the content I share, as well as learning from each other's questions in the Q & A portion of the call.
Yes! All Live with Gil sessions are recorded for later review as a benefit to Explorer subscribers. Session recordings will generally be available within 48 hours of the live event. Posting recordings of good quality requires hours of post production work, which will be accomplished in as timely a manner as possible. Occasionally, because I am a real person who gets tired (!) and needs a break after producing a live event, it may take up to a week for the session recording to post. I appreciate your patience! All recorded sessions post in the Live with Gil course listing in the Inner Space Library of Explorer subscribers.
Inside the course! To register and link to the Live with Gil call, Login to your Explorer subscription at gilhedley.com with your email and password. Scroll down a little bit in your Inner Space Library and click on the Live with Gil course listing. Within the course you will see where to register and link to the call. You can enter the call late, latecomers please mute your audio!
Sometimes folks are logged in, but actually have accidentally created two accounts, one Explorer account, and one Easy Rider account, using a different version of their name, or a different email. If you have created a paid Explorer account but have logged into the free account, you will not see the Live with Gil course listing in your Library. Log out, and login to your other account! If you would like to consolidate your accounts, just contact Gil to get that taken care of :)

Not quite yet for these sessions! Once we have accumulated 8-12 hours of content, we will "coursify" the content, add a quiz, and submit it to certifying bodies.
