Ignition of the Heart and Midline

Ignition is the point at which a client transitions to a higher level of functioning and thus healing. This course will detail the perception of a five-step ignition process within PR: spark, ignition, permeation, augmentation and disengagement.

Head-Face-Cardiac Connection
Sep 19 – Sep 23 all-day

Head-Face-Cardiac Connection

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.

Heart and Cerebrovascular Circulation
Oct 31 – Nov 4 all-day

Heart and Cerebrovascular Circulation

This course will explore the deep development of the central structures of the cardiovascular system, especially the heart-brain connection. Students will learn a new cerebrovascular circulation protocol. This protocol is based on research showing decreased blood flow to the brain following a mild traumatic brain injury. This is combined specifically with exploring the carotid sinus via Primary Respiration (PR). Palpation skills will include deeper exploration of the vertebral artery, the sagittal sinus and jugular vein.
