12-Module BCST Training, May 2015 – August 2017

Health is a deep and abiding part of each person’s essential nature, and is never lost. Deep within each of us, health is always available, and can be palpated (felt) as slow, steady rhythmic sensation, and as periods of deep resting, referred to as stillness.

The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Foundation Training

The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy foundation training is based on the “Breath of Life” perspective of craniosacral therapy by the founder of the work, Dr. William Garner Sutherland, and the continuation of the work by Franklyn Sills (author of Craniosacral Biodynamics). You’ll learn to experience the ever-present health within yourself and others in this revolutionary approach to healthcare. In gentle, non-invasive interactions between practitioner and client, you’ll experience how the Inherent Health of each client comes to the foreground and expresses its vitality. In this dynamic process, the client’s patterns of pain, stress and trauma also begin to appear, interact with the Inherent Health, and resolve.

This training occurs in a series of 12 class modules over a period of about 2 years. The first and last modules of the training are 5-day classes. The middle 10 modules of the training are all 4-day classes. The topics of the full 12-module training are described below. You can become a Registered Craniosacral Therapist (RCST) upon satisfactory completion of this training, including attendance at all of the required classes.


The training will be held at:
Lloyd Dobbins Hall
San Francisco Theological Seminary
San Anselmo, CA

Class is held from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm each day.


Tuition is $560 for each 4-day module and $700 for each 5-day module. Students bringing a massage table get a $5 per day fee reduction ($20 for 4 days and $25 for 5 days).
