Course tutors:

Michael Kern D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D. - Craniosacral Therapist, Osteopath and Naturopath with a practice in London. He has been teaching Craniosacral Therapy since 1987 and is a leading international exponent of the Biodynamic approach, regularly running courses in Italy, Switzerland and Sweden. He is co-founder of the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust, and was a senior tutor for the College of Osteopaths, the International Cranial Association, the Centre for Professional Development in Osteopathy and the University of Westminster. He is also author of the visionary book 'Wisdom In The Body - The Craniosacral Approach To Essential Health', now translated into ten languages.

Colin Perrow R.C.S.T., B.C.S.T. - Colin is a renowned international teacher of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. He has been a senior teacher at the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust in London and a Course Co-ordinator and at the Karuna Institute, where he was one of the teachers who helped to create the Biodynamic approach. Colin has practiced Zen and Mindfulness for 30 years, which enables him to bring clarity and humour to his work. His teaching is grounded in his 25 years of experience running a successful private practice in South Wales. Before he graduated as a Craniosacral Therapist in 1990, he was a successful healer and one of the leading practitioners of Kirlian photography in the UK. This energy photography gave Colin valuable insights into the relationship between mind, body and spirit and the nature of health. His early research came to fruition in Biodynamic Craniosacral work and the creation of his advanced “Heartfullness” classes. Rather than using a traditional top-down approach, where the teacher instructs the student into how their experience should be, Colin is particularly interested in teaching people to become aware of their own experience and to create a learning environment where this is supported.

ADVANCED SERIES OF SIX SEMINARS IN BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

IN ZINGST, BONN AND BERLIN - GERMANY
* FROM SEPTEMBER 2015 TO JANUARY 2018 *
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

This ‘bridging’ course in Craniosacral Biodynamics is open to existing practitioners of Craniosacral Therapy and Cranial Osteopathy. It provides an opportunity to learn key Biodynamic skills from Michael Kern, a leading international teacher in this approach. The course consists of six 4-day seminars providing 24 days of classroom attendance, supported by home-directed study.

Teaching will be in English and translated into German.

SEMINAR ONE:

BREATH OF LIFE - PERCEPTUAL SKILLS AND STATES OF BALANCE
SEPTEMBER 3RD-6TH 2015 IN ZINGST + OCTOBER 1ST-4TH 2015 IN BONN

This seminar will cover core diagnostic and treatment skills in biodynamic craniosacral practice. The pioneer of this approach, Dr. William Sutherland, realised that the 'Breath of Life' is our deepest resource for healing which operates with the utmost intelligence and precision. In this workshop practitioners will learn how to appreciate and support the supremacy of the 'Breath of Life' as a therapeutic medium, and how to deepen into the heart of the healing process. An emphasis will be placed on working with the deeper rhythms of primary respiratory motion and helping to access 'states of balance'.

SEMINAR TWO:

THE STORY OF THE BODY - THE INHERENT TREATMENT PLAN AND BODY MEMORY
MARCH 17TH-20TH 2016

During this seminar the practitioner will learn how to synchronize with the intelligent treatment priorities of the Primary Respiratory System, and how to apply augmentation skills that may be used for diagnosis and to support a therapeutic process. We will cover clinical skills to work cooperatively with the healing and creative intentions of the Breath of Life and how to safely and effectively process traumatic experiences held in the body. An emphasis is placed on accessing resources, relating to wholeness and to the deeper forces that organize our functioning.

SEMINAR THREE:

OUT INTO THE WORLD - PRE-NATAL AND BIRTH DYNAMICS IN BABIES, CHILDREN AND ADULTS
NOVEMBER 24TH-27TH 2016

Our early patterning creates the basis for how we face experiences throughout life. During this seminar we will look at pre-natal and birth dynamics and develop practical skills to work with early traumatic patterning in babies, children and adults. We will deepen our skills to work with traumatic experiences and seek to reconnect with the very ground of health and healing.

SEMINAR FOUR:

WHOLENESS - THE MIDLINE AND VISCERAL DYNAMICS
MARCH 30TH-APRIL 2ND 2017

In this seminar different levels of perception and midline function will be further explored and Biodynamic approaches for working with the spine will be introduced. Furthermore, the embryology, motility and mobility of body viscera will be introduced and the practitioner will learn to orient to the heart, as well as heart ignition. Work is geared to re-establish the original intention of cells and tissues via an appreciation of the Breath of Life, its midline dynamics and embryological organizing forces.

SEMINAR FIVE:

SPARK IN THE MOTOR – IGNITION AND THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM
AUGUST 31ST-SEPTEMBER 3RD 2017

This seminar will focus on skills to help the physiological incarnation and manifestation of the vital potencies of the Breath of Life. We will consider the important role played by fluids (particularly cerebrospinal fluid) in disseminating these potencies throughout our physiology. We will also work with the central nervous system and key areas of the brain to facilitate the expression of essential health. All practical clinical approaches are derived from a craniosacral biodynamic approach to work in the field.

SEMINAR SIX:

HEALTH, RELATIONSHIP AND INTEGRATION
NOVEMBER 30TH-DECEMBER 3RD 2017

This seminar will deepen our appreciation of ignition processes. We will also learn about the Polyvagal Theory and the role of the ‘Social Engagement System’ in regulating sympathetic and parasympathetic function. The embryological development of the face will be explored as well as therapeutic approaches for working with the fluid fields of the face. The seminar will help to integrate the work covered in previous seminars of this course.

VISCERAL INTELLIGENCE- THE THORACIC, ABDOMINAL AND PELVIC CAVITIES

IN HAMBURG, GERMANY
* NOVEMBER 26TH - 29TH 2015 *
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

This four-day course will fill in many gaps from foundation trainings by familiarising the practitioner with the motility and mobility of the body viscera. Work is geared to re-establish the original intention of cells and tissues via an appreciation of the Breath of Life, its midline dynamics and embryological organising forces. All practical approaches are derived from a craniosacral biodynamic approach to work in the field.

Topics covered will include:

  • endodermal derivatives and the formation of the gut tube
  • the embryological development, motility and mobility of each organ including: the heart, lungs, stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys (and adrenals), small intestine, large intestine and bladder
  • the role of stillness and states of balance in re-establishing the original intention of health; our embryological blueprint
  • the motility of the organs and their related connective tissues
  • the motility of the organs, potency and fluid dynamics
  • heart ignition and the heart as a natural fulcrum
  • the first breath: transitional physiology between umbilical breathing and lung breathing at birth
  • facilitated segments and organ dynamics; somatovisceral/viscerosomatic reflexes
  • the psycho-emotional relationships of the organs.

Teaching will be in English and translated into German.

STILLNESS AND FORM

IN ZURICH, SWITZERLAND (AT THE POLARITY INSTITUTE)
* APRIL 28TH-MAY 1ST 2016 *
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

Stillness is at the heart of the healing process. In the same way that eskimos have many words for “snow”, craniosacral practitioners describe many types of stillness. This advanced seminar will explore different levels of stillness and find ways to make these part of our cellular experience. We will focus on navigating the deeper levels of our being, letting go, letting things be and finding space. There will be ample opportunity for table work and reflection.

Areas explored will include:

  • heart-centred practice: working “being to being”
  • the midline connecting polarities and paradoxes
  • the stillness and suspensory nature of the primal midline
  • fluid and potency as tensile fields of function
  • deepening into the wholistic shift/’patient neutral’
  • orienting to the automatic shifting of potency
  • CV4 and EV4 revisited
  • the seven levels of stillpoint
  • CV3, EV3 and ignition at the third ventricle
  • Big Potency and little potency, transmutation and embodied forces
  • orienting to wider field phenomena; the ocean of primary respiration
  • trusting the Tide as a dynamic reality
  • offering things up
  • orienting to ‘rhythmic balanced interchange’
  • orienting to the BIG stillness - Dynamic Stillness
  • working with invisible hands.
