CST Somato-Emotional Elements 1: Listening to the Body

  • Type:
  • Class/Lecture
  • Time:
  • 19.5 hours
This class offers an expanding paradigm to craniosacral study based on work evolving from all of the founders of craniosacral therapy. Their notion is that the body has an inner consciousness, an inner wisdom, that is one aspect of the body's ability to heal itself. With our previous classes BE1, BE2 and BE3 and structural awareness gained, we now can add the energetic, inner consciousness and somato-emotional dimensions of disease, illness, healing and recovery. Topics explored will include therapeutic presence, energetic phenomena related to the body, how emotions are held in the body and how to evaluate their impact to the neurological and physiological systems. Through special exercises the attending student will cultivate a therapeutic presence and the ability to use that presence, as well as all of the previously learned palpation and manual skills, to support and facilitate the biological process of change and healing.
