* APRIL 1ST-4TH 2021 *



This inspiring four-day workshop explores human prenatal development and how the shaping of the body expresses essential attributes of human spiritual development. The scientific method of phenomenology is used to create a synthesis between modern orthodox embryology and a holistic view of the human being. Approached in this way, the human embryo reveals who we are and what we are meant to be. Practitioners have found that comprehending embryological forces supports a holistic and biodynamic approach to healthcare because the same forces that formed the body are continuously at work throughout life, carrying the blueprint of health into manifestation. This seminar also includes Dr. van der Wal’s new work with body fascia. It is a rare opportunity to hear a world authority on a modern scientific and spiritual understanding of embryology.

Topics covered will include:

  • THE UNDIVIDED EMBRYO: where do we come from?; understanding the incarnating embryo; the speech of the embryo; the embryo in us.
  • THE POLARITY EMBRYO: in the beginning; heaven and earth; the Breath of Life between chaos and cosmos; the first week: organism and wholeness versus cellularity with differentiation and organization; the two-fold embryo.
  • THE THREEFOLD EMBRYO: the vegetative embryo - interaction and innerness; from heaven to earth - individuation and incarnation; the incarnation process of the heart; fascia and blood as dimensions of mediation and innerness; the rhythmic segmentation of the body; form, rhythm and cycle.
  • THE UNIVERSAL EMBRYO: the psychosomatic embryo; four ways of being; the embryology of freedom - man as equilibrium between heaven and earth; the evolving embryo.

* This workshop is a special extension of the “Speech of the Embryo” workshop previously taught by Dr. Jaap van der Wal. For those who have already attended a “Speech of the Embryo” workshop, and if spaces are available, it may be possible to attend the 3rd day only of this workshop covering Dr. van der Wal’s new work about fascia.
