In this class, we will explore theory and practical  work related to:

  • Primary Respiration as therapeutic healing force.
  • The three tidal layers and their resources
  • The “relational healing field” and its effect on stress
  • The fluid body and its shock absorbing ability
  • Palpation of the fluid body and its natural healing forces and shifts.
  • Stillpoints, stillness and states of balance in nervous system regulation
  • Embryonic and energetic impulses of healing
  • The role of “client neutral” or “wholistic shift” in re-regulation. 
  • Tracking tools and presence as a gateway to nervous system resolution
  • Resolving nociceptive facilitation of the nervous system
  • Stress Spirals and Selye’s General Adaptation Syndrome
  • Stephen Porges’ Social Engagement Nervous System(SENS) and
  • and its interplay with sympathetic and parasympathetic balance
  • Coherency as a reflection of nervous system balance
  • Appropriate use of verbal and non-verbal skills in relating to nervous system balance.           
  • Self-help movements for improving nervous system re-regulation

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.

RESTORING RESILIENCE in the NERVOUS SYSTEM


A Biodynamic Approach
Winter/Spring 2018
Temecula, California


This seminar is about the foundations of biodynamic craniosacral therapy and how this gentle yet effective approach encourages healing and self-regulation of the nervous system and the body as a whole.

Biodynamic Craniosacral has its roots in osteopathic principles of natural healing. It teaches us to support the self-organizing forces within. 

Since it is claimed that 90 per cent of the disease in our current culture is based on Autonomic Nervous System(ANS) imbalance, we will explore practical biodynamic craniosacral approaches that re-regulate ANS  balance.

You will learn to perceive “activation”, “settling” and “discharge” in 
the nervous system and “track” this as a way of bringing conscious awareness and re-regulation. You will learn to use hand contacts and therapeutic intentions to affect autonomic  balance and restore a “resilient baseline”. 

You will develop an understanding of the embryologic formation of the central nervous system and learn to sense its “motility” as an expression of health and healing intention.

In this class, we will explore theory and practical  work related to:

  • Primary Respiration as therapeutic healing force.
  • The three tidal layers and their resources
  • The “relational healing field” and its effect on stress
  • The fluid body and its shock absorbing ability
