CST BioDynamics 2: Foundational Fluid Bodies, Germ Layers, and Cell Differentiation


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy 2 is an in depth, thirty hour, experiential course that presents a departure from biomechanical techniques while furthering a therapeutic, holistic approach that supports synchrony to the original essential state of being. Through lecture, mindfulness preparation, demonstration and practical application of biodynamic therapy this class will explore historical foundations and the scientific basis for the second week, early embryo health patterns. Emphasis will be on developmental imprinting of essential self in the heart and blood. BioDynamic Craniosacral Therapy 2 explores week two embryological patterns that provide the foundations for developmental, therapeutic and core imprinting processes. Through mindful awareness exercises, direct personal experience and multi-hands practical labs, therapists will develop depth listening skills, while observing through biodynamic treatment windows, in an effort to synchronize all adult body systems to original embryological health imprints. Discover and experience the three fluid bodies amnion, chorion and yolk sac and their foundational function, through zone perceptual awareness, primary respiration, dynamic stillness, relationships through horizontal and vertical midlines, heart midline expansion, endoderm, ectoderm, and mesoderm germ layers, pharyngeal arches and pouches and their brain stem derivatives. These early templates for growth, health and balance are retained throughout adulthood and are the foundations for growth, maintenance and repair. Therapists will gain new understanding of the body and its’ inner and outer relationships through conscience experience of typically non-conscious phenomena. This fundamental knowledge will assist the therapist in providing depth therapy based on original health patterns, returning the body to its’ natural, resting, yet dynamic state.
