Subject: The cranial base and reflections of the whole

Instructors: Bhadrena C. Tschumi Gemin, Kavi Gemin

This is the fourth seminar in the Foundation training.

The Head-Face-Cardiac Connection (BCVT 1) @ Hyatt Place Saratoga/Malta
Jun 19 – Jun 22 all-day

This advanced training will focus on new research in the embryonic development of the heart with its implications for biodynamic practice. The heart grows around a profound stillness located in its inner tissues. The relationship of the developing face to the brain in back of it and the heart attached to the front of it and the neck will be a specific focus of this class. The heart is ignited by growth factors from the face. As the face and brain grow up, the heart grows down within the trunk cavity of the embryo. This links the heart, brain and face together as one unit of function. Specific skills to balance the heart fields of the face, brain, trunk and neck will be taught.

Of special interest in this course will be the four types of circulatory systems present in the embryo, fetus and infant and the closing of the anterior midline. The relationship of the therapist and client is an interconnected circulatory system in biodynamic practice. Meditations and cardiovascular explorations will also be taught to bring conscious awareness of the movement of the heart and blood in the therapist’s body and then in the client. Research proves that this changes the brain and develops empathy and compassion for the client.

  • Introduction to Ignition in the cardiovascular system
  • Perform the skills of balancing the head, neck and heart with Primary Respiration
  • Work with the fluid fields of face
  • Deepen an understanding of biodynamic practice being a two-person circulatory system

More about Courses in Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy with Michael J. Shea, PhD, Visit Sheaheart.com

The majority of people in Western countries now suffer from an epidemic of metabolic syndromes (such as heart disease, obesity and diabetes). The central locations of metabolic problems are in the intestines and the cardiovascular system throughout the body especially its endothelium. Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy (BCVT) is the application of biodynamic craniosacral therapy principles to the cardiovascular system. This work was begun by the founder of Osteopathy, Andrew Taylor Still in the 19th century when he said that “the rule of the artery is supreme.” That wisdom is still true today.

The following courses are designed for craniosacral therapists who have graduated from a biodynamic foundation training, studied with other teachers or have a clinical practice in craniosacral therapy. Students without prior training in craniosacral therapy but who are licensed manual therapists are welcome and need to be interviewed prior to acceptance in a course.

There are two intentions of these courses. The first is for the therapist and client to experience embodied wholeness and compassion through awareness of the heart and vascular system. The focus is on developing these qualities first in the therapist and then offering them to the client through the therapeutic presence of the therapist and how kindness is expressed through his or her hands when in contact with the client. This intention is based on the therapist’s perception of Primary Respiration (sometimes called the Long Tide in Cranial Osteopathy) and dynamic stillness (sometimes called a stillpoint) while gently contacting the arteries of the client.

The second intention is to understand and sense the cellular metabolism of the client via the cardiovascular system. This especially involves the crucial role in health of the vascular endothelium (the inner lining if the arteries and veins). In this approach, students learn how to positively influence the metabolic system of the client in the blood and its vessels. This includes the immune system in the blood and endocrine systems located in the endothelium. The heart-blood-endothelium complex is contacted with the therapeutic activity of Primary Respiration and stillness already within it. In this way, the therapist and his or her hands is simply reminding the cardiovascular system of its preexisting health.

Primary Respiration is defined as the long tide in biodynamic craniosacral therapy. It is the movement of wholeness. It is one of the three tidal movements that craniosacral therapists might work with in clinical practice. The other two are the cranial rhythmic impulse (CRI) and the mid tide both of which are faster. Primary Respiration was first discovered by William Garner Sutherland, DO, and incorporated into clinical practice because of the therapeutic benefits when both the practitioner and client access a slow rhythm in their nervous system, heart and body– such as Primary Respiration.

The purpose of the whole training is:

  1. To study the new science of compassion and its recovery with Biodynamic Cardiovascular Therapy. Each class contains mindfulness based guided meditations linking compassion, kindness and gentle care with the experience of Primary Respiration and stillness in and around the body. This is the essence of each course.
  2. To learn new palpation skills to help stabilize and improve the cellular metabolism of the contemporary client specifically in their Fluid Body (the instinct of knowing how to self-heal), intestinal, cardiovascular and nervous systems.
  3. To be learn important new aspects of prenatal development and the cellular metabolism of the cardiovascular system. Human embryology from the point of view of morphology (wholistic movement) will be taught in many classes which informs the palpation skills being taught.
  4. To experience embodied wholeness in one’s self first and then offer that to the client through skillful application of palpation skills based on compassionate touch. This begins in the physical body together with its Fluid Body.
  5. To maintain a Heart to Heart connection. The electromagnetic field of the heart extends 15’ around the body and constantly interacts with other heart fields. Primary Respiration moves within the heart field to generate safety, healing and embodied wholeness. This sensory awareness can be applied in all life situations. Numerous skills will be taught to experience this state.

In these classes, students will learn how and when to blend current and previous learning in all forms of craniosacral therapy as well as manual therapy of all kinds for the most effective treatment for the client. Each year the curriculum of all courses is updated with new research information on the Fluid Body, cardiovascular and nervous systems and its application in clinical practice.

Healing from the Core: Reclaiming Health After Trauma @ Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust
Jun 24 – Jun 25 all-day

Healing from the Core: Reclaiming Health After Trauma – at Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust

Trauma is a fact of life and it can exist at all levels and in all people. The consequence of holding unresolved trauma in the body is that we lose our capacity to be present, to be resilient, and to experience the joy of being alive. This workshop will explore the depth and breadth of what heals us after trauma. It will present skills that can be directly taken into clinical practice, as well as helping ourselves; including ways to effectively refill energy reservoirs, to grow and find steadiness in our cores, the use of breath to calm the CNS, touch skills to down-regulate the fight-flight-freeze response, and finding whole-heartedness to heal traumatic memories. This workshop is open to all hands-on therapists.

Speaker: Suzanne Scurlock-Durana

Healing Developmental Trauma Summer Intensives: Level 1 Residential Intensive
Jun 26 – Jul 7 all-day

COURSE TOPICS:

WEEK 1:  Preconception, Prenatal Period, Attachment Process

WEEK 2:  Birth

Understanding the primal period, from preconception through the first year of life is vital for anyone who works therapeutically with people, including infants, children, families or adults. The intensive includes doing many shorter exercises in triads, with hands on support, as well as cognitive learning, including handouts, videos and live teaching. We study practical strategies for healing early developmental trauma as well as have opportunities for personal healing work and practice facilitating others. This Intensive is at least 50% experiential. Each participant has an opportunity to do a longer 2 hour session with the facilitators.

INVESTMENT:

$1600 for Tuition,  $500 deposit required to hold your spot.

Remaining $1100 due one month prior to workshop commencement.

Accommodation: shared Domes: $300  Cabins $400

Food: $525 including taxes – $250 due one month in advance

Cancellation Policy:

$200 deposit is refundable two months in advance of the training, $300 will be retained.  If cancellation occurs closer than two months before then the entire deposit will be retained, unless the space is filled,  If the space is filled then $350 will be refunded.  This policy is in place, as even though we may have a waiting list, it if often difficult for people to re arrange their life for two summer weeks, if it is close to the dates.

Body Intelligence Foundation Training @ Soul Centre
Jun 28 – Jul 2 all-day

The training offers a 50 day practitioner course for individuals wanting to become qualified craniosacral therapists. The training is biodynamic in its approach orienting to the body’s natural wisdom and allowing innate intelligent processes to arise and bring about authentic change. These changes will be physiological and psycho-emotional. The body’s own priorities for change are listened for and encouraged to arise. The art of the therapist is to connect with the underlying forces of health and facilitate a process of natural reorganisation. These forces express as subtle motion of tissues and fluids that can be felt by sensitive hands. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connectedness of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged.

This is a 10-module training. For full training dates, click here.
