INITIATORY AND MENTOR COURSES
Biodynamic Cranial Touch/Stillness Touch Initiatory Course
Open to anyone wishing to develop personally or to investigate pursuing a committed professional track. The Initiatory Course is for all health practitioners, psychotherapists, movement therapists, and bodyworkers new to cranial work. It is required for all craniosacral practitioners or other biodynamic practitioners who wish to learn more about the type of biodynamics we teach before undertaking a committed yearlong study of Biodynamic Cranial Touch/Stillness Touch in the Mentor Course.
During the Initiatory Course you learn how to touch in a way that is non-efferent (neutral), non-doing, and in tonal match with primary respiration. This course is designed to provide you with an array of embodiment of Stillness and midline practices by which you directly access primary respiration in your inner body. This is accomplished through a gradual process whereby you cease all efferent activity and intervention balanced with not being overly distant or unresponsive while touching another such that you learn to relax into Stillness, and abide in your natural state (neutral) - while letting 'what is' be as it is.
We review Dr. Sutherland's profound insights into biodynamics. Accomplished by creating a sacred space through Stillness Meditations, accessing the invisible midline, entering our heart awareness, feelingly inhabiting the inner body space to sense its tones, and with hand contacts tonally matched, we are inwardly led to powerful encounters with primary respiration of the Breath of Life.
Biodynamic Cranial Touch/Stillness Touch Mentor Course
Open to those who wish to develop personally, or who want to become a Biodynamic Cranial Touch/Stillness Touch Practitioner. To join the Mentor Course you must successfully complete the Initiatory Course, or equivalent Private Intensive Initiatory, and have teacher approval.
The Mentor Course develops out of a field of interest to immerse oneself in the work, and often as a response to an uncanny yet inexorable “calling”. Mentor Course dates are scheduled once there’s critical mass of committed participants. It requires up-front commitment for the whole year, and non-refundable tuition for any reason.
Each course provides the opportunity and support to progressively cultivate and maintain a living, intimate, ever-deepening, and continuous body-felt-sense connection with the Breath of Life, Consciousness, and The Love that is all that is. Biodynamic Cranial Touch/Stillness Touch Mentoring offers a way to competently practice a non-medical approach using any healing modality such as cranial work, medicine, integral medical work, acupuncture, homeopathy, naturopathy, bodywork, movement, somatics, or psychotherapy.
