Introduction to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy / Feb 23-25, 2023


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with Gary Peterson


HEALTH resides in each of us as an intelligence greater than our own mentality. This “Inherent Health” is never lost and is the true center of all healing processes. Join us to experience your own Inherent Health and to learn essential skills for supporting the Inherent Health in each person.


In this Introductory workshop you’ll explore the basic skills and principles of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.  You’ll learn body-centered approaches to:

• Settle into your own “practitioner neutral”
• Develop the primary skills of Being and Relationship
• Negotiate safe space and contact
• Expand your perceptual field
• Track subtle motion

You’ll also explore these unique aspects of the Biodynamic skill set:

• The Holistic Shift
• The 3 Tides
• Levels of Stillness
• Inherent Health
• The Inherent Treatment Plan

And you’ll have the opportunity to do bodywork exchanges every day of class.


You can take this workshop with no obligation to join our full  Foundation Training, which begins April 20-22 in San Rafael.  However, if you do enroll in the 3+ year training, you can use your Intro class days as make-up days for any days missed during the training.
