CST BioDynamics 3: Heart Ignition and the Central Nervous System


Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Week 3 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 3 explores week three 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 heart ignition through zone perceptual awareness, primary respiration, dynamic stillness, essential being in the blood, relationships through horizontal and vertical midlines, heart midline expansion, pharyngeal arches and pouches and their 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.
