At the heart of any healing modality lies the ability to remain present; biodynamic cranial therapy teaches us how. Come learn this subtle yet extremely potent way to facilitate deep healing. With the Biodynamic approach, we form a relationship to the health already abiding within the client and facilitate its expression throughout their entire being. The cranial system shows us how to be more present, which enables an intelligent healing potency to express itself freely. Presence unites the practitioner to the natural world, enabling the client to access profound healing resources. You will learn how to sensitively work with the cranio-sacral system, advance your confidence in subtle palpation skills and experience the profound stillness at the heart of health. Open to all health-care providers and those enrolled in a health-care training school. Class sizes are intentionally small and assistants are employed to ensure students confidently integrate the approach. Ongoing support is available after workshops via Supplements, Treatment Exchanges and Feedback Sessions. Please go to Todd’s website at toddjackson.com to see additional curriculum offered.
