Buddy Frank grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, went to high school at The Westminster Schools, and graduated with a B.S. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in 1989. After a year of law school at the University of Georgia, he realized that he needed a different life pursuit, and moved to Boulder, CO. There, his enthusiasm led him to the rocks and mountains around town, throughout Colorado, the United States, and to many countries around the world. Buddy worked as an instructor for the Colorado Outward Bound School during this time, and it was a sore back and a failed knee operation that brought him to Structural Integration.
After a couple of years of getting the SI work, Buddy felt compelled by the art of Structural Integration to make it his life’s work, and went to school at the Guild for Structural Integration in Boulder, CO. He studied with Emmett Hutchins, Peter Melchior, Nilce Silvera, and David Davis, and graduated as a practitioner in 1997. Buddy went on to do his Advanced Training in 2002, and was greatly influenced by the 4-handed continuing education workshops he attended with Emmett and Peter. Buddy is a Board Certified Structural Integrator, as well as a Professional member of Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals.
In 2001, Buddy, along with a group of other SI practitioners dedicated to changing and growing the profession of Structural Integration, created the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI). Buddy was a founding Board Member (2002-2007), and Board President from 2006-2007.
Buddy and David Davis created the Crestone College of Structural Integration (CCSI) in 2007 as a way to bring their vision and understanding of SI to the world.
Buddy’s personal development has included studying pre & perinatal education, and cranialsacral work, and engaging in the practices of chi kung and tai chi. He enjoys reading and rambling in the mountains and lives and practices in Crestone, CO.
