This course will focus on new research in the embryonic development of the heart and 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 will be a specific focus of this class.

* THE VOICE AND HYOID *
WITH KATHERINE UKLEJA D.O., R.C.S.T., B.C.S.T.
SEPTEMBER 29TH-30TH 2018
The voice reveals our emotions. The sounds of anguish and despair or of triumph and joy are universally understood and compelling. The tone of voice tells us more than the words that are spoken; it is primal, animal – a key component of the Social Nervous System. In this seminar we will explore the role of the larynx in voice production – can we speak up for ourselves and be heard? Are we silenced by fear or emboldened by rage? Also, the hyoid bone, formed from two pharyngeal folds in the embryo, is the anchor of the tongue. It is a central anatomical component of the throat, a solid strut in its tensegrity structure and the root of many muscles. Intimate work with the hyoid is vital for resolving throat inertia to help reconnect the head to the body.
Venue: Skylight Centre, Islington, London, UK
