Training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Learning biodynamic craniosacral therapy is not like learning a new technique to add to your bag of tricks. Learning to perceive biodynamic processes fundamentally alters the practitioner’s perceptual sensitivity so that the truth of the client’s reality can reveal itself in all of its layered complexity. Learning biodynamics changes who the practitioner is able to be, into a wiser and more sensitive collaborator in the client’s self-healing process.
The type of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy that we will be learning is called Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy. This work, discovered and developed by Dr. Michael Shea, (www.michaelsheateaching.com), incorporates the most exciting and profound breakthroughs in the study of Craniosacral Therapy since Dr Sutherland’s late in life reframing of the study of Cranial Osteopathy. The essence of this development is that we learn to work with and through the cardiovascular system rather than working primarily through the nervous system. Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy works more slowly, more deeply and more safely within the client’s system.
Beginning September 22, 2017 – This Training will be comprised of 300 hours with 250 hours in class and 50 hours of homework spread over two years. The first class will be a full weekend (20 hours – Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The following weekend classes will be held for one weekend every month for 15 hours (Saturday and Sunday).
DAYS/TIME: Saturday, 9:30am to 5:00pm and Sunday 10:00am to 2:30pm.
