Basic Curriculum Topics
Your dynamic teaching team is composed of LifeShapes’ staff of gifted teachers who are active in private practice, have studied with Franklyn Sills and have fulfilled the requirements to be officially approved through the BCTA/NA. They are well grounded in this work and bring varied backgrounds and styles to create a dynamic whole.
Additional assisting staff will be used to provide a minimum ratio of one teacher for every five students. This creates an optimal learning environment that is supportive of a mentorship style of learning with consistently available feedback and modeling.
LifeShapes Institute is dedicated to the presentation of quality education in the field of craniosacral therapy, including aspects of polarity therapy, pre and peri-natal work and somatic trauma resolution.

Pre-requisite Intro Courses
beginning our next training:
Biodynamic craniosacral work acknowledges the deepest roots and highest potentials of the human system. It works with the breath of life itself and the many layers of its physiological and energetic reflections.
In this course, you will learn fundamental skills that will enable you to relate to the Craniosacral System. These skills will then be applied, practiced and developed. You will explore many levels starting with fluidtides and primary life impulses. You will move into specific physiological relationship with membrane, bone and other structures while maintaining a context of wholeness.
You will learn to perceive and work with the body's methods of holding unresolved trauma. You will learn to appreciate and facilitate the health in the system as it expresses its natural self-corrective impulse.
During the course, you will be required to produce homework assignments between classes, give and receive sessions and do a cranial project. Supervision, feedback and course handouts will be provided throughout the course.
The curriculum is based on an integrative approach developed by LifeShapes team. It is grounded in the pioneering concepts of Dr. William Garner Sutherland and its flow and wholeness is based on concepts developed by Franklyn Sills and the biodynamic community. The influences of Drs. Rollin Becker, James Jealous, Ray Castellino, Randolph Stone, Peter Levine, Anngwyn St. Just and Pat Ogden bring depth and added understanding from embryology, birth, somatic trauma healing & polarity therapy.
