Allies with the Tide

1st part of the three-level postgraduate training Stillness in Motion

30 July – 2 August 2020

First of three seminars of advanced postgraduate training tracks footprints of the tide in a living organism. It opens up new opportunities to cooperate with the intent of the tide, enhances the therapist’s ability to surrender to its guidance and by that broadens his possibilities. We will focus on recognizing the forces of the tide in action and how to cooperate with them even in situations where the body has difficulty expressing primary respiration.

Tide is the basis of health, the information of the original matrix of the human entering the body with it. The tide contributes to the formation of the body from the very first moments of life. It is a force that supports the development of the individual and allows him to grow. At the same time, it is a force that returns him to his original purpose, healing him.

The tide guides the biodynamic practitioner through treatment, and the information that the practitioner is able to receive from it has a major impact on the development of the session. The tide becomes a guide of healing and allows the development of a healing plan to the extent that the practitioner is able to perceive and distinguish the manifestations of health. Normally, the practitioner connects to the involuntary rhythm of primary respiration and supports its beneficial organizing cycles.

But what if the primary respiration cycles aren’t present, or cannot manifest? When the system’s vitality is diminished, when it does not have enough potency to express primary respiration in continuous and steady cycles. Traumatic affect, shock, toxicity in the system affect the body’s ability to respond to primary respiration. When the system is unable to express the tide by rhythmic movement, it is essential to develop other tools for cooperation with the Breath of Life. The practitioner can recognize the effect of the potency in the dynamics of the structures and read in the footsteps of the tide and, with their help, reconnect with the forces of health. The morphology and shape of the body reveal traces of the tide that has formed, shaped and developed it, and which constantly regulates its function.

Knowledge of anatomy, embryology, physiology, understanding of biodynamic principles and highly developed perception can be used to recognize tide traces. We will develop and use these skills as part of the healing process (to evaluate). In addition, we explore ways in which we can connect directly with the inherent intelligence of the system, which, as a silent companion, guides us to manifestations of health and their maintaining.

What you learn

Skills – deepening of therapeutic craniosacral competences – specific tools to support and maintain the manifestations of health in the client – becoming acquainted and practicing a specific protocol for the recognition of health forces in traumatized, inert, suppressed systems.

Seminar content – on what are biodynamic principles based – evaluation and interaction with complex situations – access to forces of health and maintaining connections.

Learning objectives – developed the ability to apply and use biodynamic principles during treatments – recognize manifestations of health in tide – orient to natural organizing forces within disordered movement – recognize tide activity in the absence of movement – keep vigilance and serenity in difficult situations – deepen client’s connection with the forces of health – cooperate with the body intelligence of a person

Three-part postgraduate training Stillness in Motion

The three postgraduate seminars present the latest directions in which craniosacral biodynamics is going and elevate your practice to another level. Training passes on new knowledge that sets the course of the field and reveals unexpected interconnections.

The training develops your existing knowledge, brings a new level of perception and builds a new kind of skills. It passes advanced therapeutic tools and teaches new approaches. Three follow-up seminars gradually expand the practitioner’s competences and lead to epiphanies of the essence of the craniosacral work.
