Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is an essential healing experience to offer our clients and ourselves in these over-the-top times of fast pace and overload. This work is based in stillness – a stillness we as practitioners cultivate within ourselves. Come reset your inner pace to slow and sustainable!
Biodynamic work is utterly practical. Clients consistently report how effectively it reduces pain, anxiety, and distress. Biodynamic work opens us to the whole self: clients often experience a profound and welcome felt sense of well-being that is much greater than their ailments. Biodynamic practice supports our sustainability and well-being as practitioners, essential if we are dedicated to a sustainable and healthy world.
In this two-day introduction to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy we will explore our own relationships to stillness and to the greater field of life. Through solo and partnered exercises we will practice and develop mindful sensory awareness. This becomes a foundation for our ability to remain present within ourselves and present with our client during a session.
We will learn and actively practice:
- Roots of Biodynamics in Osteopathy
- Mindfulness and resting awareness in the self
- Neuroplasticity: our inherent tendency toward self-regulation and how to support it
- Somatic experiences to connect with our fluid body as a basis for contact
- Contact in stillness and spaciousness in awareness of being, rather than doing
- Tracking our inner experience as a basis for effectively interacting with our client
- Tides and Tissues, considerations in combining Biodynamic stillness and active bodywork
- Partnering with nature
- Discussions and conversations to air our questions, concerns and discoveries
