BREATH OF LIFE - PERCEPTUAL SKILLS AND STATES OF BALANCE

* SEPTEMBER 2014 *

IN KIEV, UKRAINE

WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., N.D.

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'.

Areas explored will include:

  • The primary respiratory system and unfoldments of the Breath of Life
  • Therapeutic presence, the practitioner neutral and being to being interconnection
  • The wide perceptual field and perceptual shifts
  • Perception and palpation of the 3-Tides
  • The midline and our embryological development
  • Introduction to the notochord and fluid midline
  • Palpating expressions of health within tissues and fluids
  • Perceiving patterns of experience and inertial fulcrums
  • Perception of the tides: the cranial rhythmic impulse, the mid-tide and the long tide
  • Appreciating the role of our essential blueprint for health and its embryological origins
  • Understanding and perceiving biodynamic and conditional forces
  • Introduction to trauma and overwhelm, resources and health
  • Understanding and perceiving the role of balance and stillness in the healing process
  • The heart of the healing process - 'states of balance'
  • Orienting to the wholeness
  • Perceiving the unit of function of tissue, fluid and potency
  • Dr. Rollin Becker's work and 'three step healing process'
  • Following the inherent treatment plan: letting go of conditioned motion and orienting to the 'holistic shift’
  • Moving from local to systemic states of balance
  • Long tide exercise.he senses of touch and movement

SENSORY AWARENESS
- BEYOND THE FIVE SENSES

* SEPTEMBER 4TH - 7TH 2014 *

IN GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN

WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., N.D.

During this seminar we will gain knowledge of the five senses and other less commonly described realms of sensory awareness. Other senses come into play as we enter more subtle realms of experience, such as imagination, inspiration, instinct, insight and intuition, and these will be explored in the context of craniosacral practice. This evolving picture of sensory experience shows that the way we become aware of our world is a lot more complex than mechanical models of the past. The seminar provides an opportunity to experience a clarification of our sensory capacity and find ways in which we can help clients develop their full potential. There will be ample time for table work and reflection.

Topics covered will include:

  • the senses of touch and movement
  • the twelve senses as outlined by Rudolph Steiner
  • the twelve pre-natal senses as described by David Chamberlain
  • the eyes, eye muscles and associated cranial nerves
  • the 'gut brain' and using our instinctual gut sense
  • working with the enteric nervous system
  • the role of the vagus nerves and treatment approaches
  • the faculty of interoception and its significance in health and trauma resolution; the insular cortex and anterior cingulate cortex
  • the heart as a sensory organ; sensing with the heart
  • using our whole physiology as barometers and instigators of change
  • developing the subtle senses in diagnosis and treatment.

Teaching will be in English and translated into Swedish. This workshop will include 26 hours of classroom attendance.

THE STORY OF THE BODY - THE INHERENT TREATMENT PLAN AND AUGMENTATION SKILLS
WITH KATHERINE UKLEJA D.O., R.C.S.T., B.C.S.T.
5TH - 9TH DECEMBER 2012 + APRIL 24TH - 27TH 2014

During this seminar the practitioner will learn how to listen for the intelligent treatment priorities of the Primary Respiratory System, and initiate subtle palpatory and perceptual 'conversations' with tissues, fluids and potencies. These augmentation skills may be used for both diagnosis and treatment. The seminar will cover clinical skills necessary to work cooperatively with the healing and creative intentions of the Breath of Life. An emphasis is placed on relating to the deeper forces that organise our functioning.

SEMINAR THREE:

OUT INTO THE WORLD - PRE-NATAL AND BIRTH DYNAMICS IN BABIES, CHILDREN AND ADULTS
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., N.D.
20TH - 24TH APRIL 2013 + OCTOBER 2ND - 5TH 2014

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 safely and effectively relate to early traumatic patterning in babies, children and adults. In addition, we will seek to reconnect with the very ground of health and healing.

SEMINAR FOUR:

SPARK IN THE MOTOR - THE 'IGNITION' PROCESS AT CONCEPTION, BIRTH AND THROUGHOUT LIFE
WITH KATHERINE UKLEJA D.O., R.C.S.T., B.C.S.T.
13TH - 17TH NOVEMBER 2013 + JANUARY 22ND - 25TH 2015

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 vital 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 FIVE:

FINDING WHOLENESS
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., N.D.
18TH - 22ND MAY 2014 + APRIL 30TH - MAY 3RD 2015

In this seminar the embryology, motility and mobility of body viscera will be introduced, and the practitioner will learn to orient to the heart and heart ignition. The embryological development of the face will be explored as well as therapeutic approaches for working with the fluid fields of the face. 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. The seminar will help to integrate the work covered in previous seminars of this course.
