Craniosacral 1: DU Vessel & The Inferior Reciprocal Tension Membrane (Core Link)
In this class we make our initial contact with midline from sacrum to occiput, known as the core link, and explore the reciprocal tension of the dural tube connecting the two structures, as well as the energetics of extraordinary vessel Du or Governor Vessel. We examine traditional flexion and extension as well as liquid electric models of brain, spine, sacrum and occiput, and develop our understanding and connection of craniosacral rhythm, mid tide, and long tide.
We continue exploration of midline and Governor vessel through the upper reciprocal tension membrane. We work with the neurocranium and flexion and extension and liquid electric models of movement of the ethmoid, sphenoid, frontal, and parietal bones, the sphenobasilar joint, and the divergent channels of Governor Vessel.
Craniosacral 2: Du Vessel & The Superior Reciprocal Tension Membrane
We continue exploration of midline and Governor vessel through the upper reciprocal tension membrane. We work with the membrane falx, and flexion and extension and liquid electric models of movement of the frontal, parietal bones, and ethmoid bone, completing our initial contacts to the neurocranium save for the temporal bone.
Craniosacral 3: Lateral Structures & Girdling Vessel
In this class we will explore the pelvic bowl, the diaphragmatic bowl, and the cranial bowl through the tentorium. We will also move from the neurocranium to the visceral cranium and work with flexion / extension and liquid electric models of movement for the temporal bones, the maxilla and mandible, and the relationship between the stomatognathic system and the pelvis. We will look at how all these horizontal structures relate to the horizontal extraordinary channel Girdling Vessel.
Craniosacral 4: Speed Reducers & Air Sinuses
In this class we look with greater detail at the sphenoid's relationship to ethmoid and vomer. We also work with the 6 sinuses, the two front, one sphenoid, two maxilla, one ethmoid, and additional consideration of the auditory tubes and the dural tube via the core link to the sacrum in the care and treatment of sinus issues.
Craniosacral 5: Chakras, Conception (Ren) Channel, The Blood Sinuses, The Heart & The Spiritual Heart
In this class we will explore the chakra system, and detail chakra location as expressed by Mikio Sankey in his volumes of work in 'Esoteric Acupuncture.' Additionally we will explore Conception Vessel, and connect Conception Vessel to where we began at Governor Vessel to grasp a whole body circulation of energy. We will consider the heart chakra as the center of centers and special attention will be given to working with the spiritual heart.
