Cranio Sacral Therapy

Cultivating Perception, Touch and Treatment: a Foundational Training in Cranio-Sacral Therapy

This foundational training delves into the tidal phenomena and therapeutic forces that shape and sustain health. In addition, emphasis is placed on cranial anatomy and neuro-physiology, treatment protocols, embryological development and the cultivation of practitioner presence. This approach will be immediately relevant to your somatic practice.

Module 1: Cultivating Touch and Perception

March 29-April 1, 2018
    An overview of cranio-sacral phenomena.
  • Principles and Theory of Tidal Orientation

  • The cranial vault: Sutures, Meninges and Venous Sinuses.
  • Breath and the Fluid Body
  • Orientation & Attunement
    • Sensing the whole person
    • Perceptual depth / deepening stillness / presence

Module 2: Facial Development and the Social Nervous System

May 31-June 3, 2018
  • Anatomy of visceral cranium. o Cranial sacral fluid (CSF) o Ventricles, aqueducts, canals.

  • Engaging the Social Nervous System: o vagus nerve (ventral – dorsal)
  • Heart – Face – Brain connection

Module 3: Pulsation, Ignition and Instinct

July 29-31, 2018
  • Ascending and descending growth patterns
