What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?

The expressions of health and wholeness are the focus in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. It is oriented to what is called the Breath of Life, a Creative Intelligence that moves within each of us and within the universe as a whole. The work is an art of deep listening to the subtle rhythms of the body, sensing and understanding that language, and appropriately responding to the healing intentions of the human system. Sessions offer an opportunity for direct experience of the inner self and the possibility of transmutation in the Dynamic Stillness.

Who can benefit?

Everyone can benefit, because Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy promotes wholeness. During the course of one’s life, the human system can become patterned, shaped and conditioned according to how one is able to deal with stress or trauma. Common causes are physical injuries, emotional and/or psychological stresses, birth trauma and toxicity.

A non-invasive gentle approach

The emphasis in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is to help resolve the forces that underlie and govern patterns of disease and fragmentation in both body and mind. Levels of consciousness can be accessed within the various layers of the Breath of Life and the work becomes a support for spiritual growth. Through the development of subtle skills, the practitioner can read the story of the body, identify places where issues are held and support the individual’s own natural priorities for healing. The session unfolds organically through one’s Innate Intelligence and the body’s ability to self-regulate.

In the Biodynamic approach, the healing process comes from within the client. One may feel deep relaxation and become aware of subtle alterations such as tissue release, heat, tingling and energy. The client’s awareness of his or her personal process is an integral part. It is an experiential exploration which encompasses mental processes, feelings, emotions and their physical manifestations.

“This work is very subtle. / think it can get too abstract sounding, whereas my experience of it is amazingly embodied. The practitioner and the client both drop into a deeply quiet, meditative state. Then something happens and a change occurs.” -- M.H., Anthropologist, Oregon
