Cranial 1 (C1), The Foundation Cranial Class

This four-day class is designed to introduce analytical and intuitive visionary understanding of craniosacral work, perhaps more appropriately described as Sacred Cranial, since it approaches the head with such reverence. It is the High Art of healing touch. This exquisitely sensitive, subtle and careful work can be highly effective when properly applied; the gentlest of approaches is often more powerful than the most robust. As e.e. cummings said, “nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.”

The class emphasizes perceptual clarity, inner calm and right action, which form the context for our study of cranial anatomy and technique. Each half-day of the class is devoted to the study of a specific cranial bone, using natural disarticulated specimens, slides and hands-on work with a partner to deepen understanding. All practical work is under the constant supervision of the teacher and his or her assistants. The techniques presented for each bone are brought together in a basic technique protocol that health care practitioners may use as a basis with which to introduce cranial work to their own practices.

*this class gives you 32 CEs from the NCTMB*

Cranial 2 (C2), Coupled Holds, Sacral Work and Unwinding

This four-day class is designed to broaden the scope of and deepen capabilities in Visionary Craniosacral Work, building upon the foundation of the introductory class. Cranial 2 is structured to show new ways to harness perception and insight to tactile and communicative skills, and to show new ways to interact with the conscious medium that is the body.

The class begins by devoting a 2 days to studying supine approaches to the sacral and coxal bones. The third day is focused on the lateral bony structures of the cranium and introduces coupled and spanning contacts to both the head and the face. The last day are dedicated to understanding the concept, sensitivity to and practice of unwinding.

*you receive 32 CEs from NCBTMB for this class*
