About the Course
15 CEUs through NCBTMB
In our culture, we are taught to think of life as static, but life and the human body are and have always been dynamic, alive, and in motion. Did you know that the forces that can facilitate healing are the same forces that shaped you in your earliest days?
This three-day (15-hour) online course is the first three days of the six-day (35-hour) hybrid introduction to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy course. The six-day course is equivalent to Module 1 of the Craniosacral Biodynamics certification training. In this course, you will be introduced to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST), an elegant and effective system of healing whose roots go back centuries and are found in many indigenous cultures. Dr. Andrew Taylor Still brought some of these tools to the white world through his creation of Osteopathy. The discoveries of one of Still’s students, Dr. William Sutherland, are the branch of this ancient tree that is today called BCST. You’ll learn and experience various aspects of the biodynamic paradigm which are the foundation of this work and all the courses taught at the School of Inner Health. If you have already experienced our one-day introductory course to BCST, which is not a pre-requisite of this course, you will discover new material in this course. You will also have the opportunity to more deeply embody and comprehend what you were introduced to in the one-day course. it is a great way to explore if the full training is a fit for you.
If you are a massage therapist or other bodyworker looking to lessen the physical wear-and-tear on your own body while at the same time increasing the depth, effectiveness, and impact of your healing work with clients, becoming a Craniosacral Therapist will meet all these goals. Psychotherapists also find enormous benefit in applying this material in their work because of the skills of presence and embodiment that are taught (yes, in the online portion!). Professionals in many fields will be able to use what they learn in this class and apply it immediately in their existing practice.
This class offers:
- Experiential learning.
- Tools to cultivate, presence, attention and felt sense.
