CRANIOSACRAL BIODYNAMICS

Craniosacral Biodynamics is an approach to the teaching and practice of Craniosacral Therapy that acknowledges the deepest foundations of the human system.

We, as human beings, are seen as

  • an expression of the wholeness of life itself
  • not separate from the vast forces at work throughout the universe.

A spiritual essence called the Breath of Life is perceived to generate a

  • subtle tide-like ordering and organizing principle called primary respiration
  • that manifests as a biodynamic life force or potency within the human system.

This intrinsic health

  • integrates all cellular and tissue form and function, from the moment of conception until death
  • is constantly at work maintaining the best possible balance and homeostasis even in the most desperate circumstances.

The intention of biodynamic clinical work is to re-establish the relationship between

  • inertial or conditioned mind-body states and
  • the intrinsic health of primary respiration.

Biodynamic work is founded on:

  • Practitioner presence
  • Establishing a clear, safe and negotiated relational field
  • Understanding and perception that health and wholeness are always present
  • Honoring a vast Intelligence guiding and maintaining our health, development and formation throughout life, as well as in session work
  • Sensing subtle expressions of life founder of Cranial Osteopathy William G. Sutherland called primary respiration, manifesting as:
    • Subtle tide-like rhythms
    • Potency – an embodied life force that has organizational, protective and healing functions
  • Perceiving and differentiating phenomena relating to primary respiration and its interplay with unresolved conditional, historic or traumatic forces
  • Orienting to deep formative forces underlying presenting symptoms, tissue patterns or other issues
  • Facilitating states of equilibrium and stillness within which potency can manifest healing processes
