The course, of 5 seminars, will honour William Garner Sutherland’s journey. Early in his career Dr Sutherland described the subtle rhythmic motion of the Primary Respiratory Mechanism. His later insights led him to the Potency of the Breath of Life, the ‘liquid light’, which ignites and animates all living organisms. The practice of Craniosacral Biodynamics orients the practitioner to the action of this Potency within the fluid body and the slower tidal rhythms that it generates.

We will also be drawing on the insights contributed by Franklyn Sills; particularly the nature of the relational field, an appreciation of the three bodies and skills for meeting the psycho-emotional aspects of our clients’ histories.

Finally, the curriculum will be grounded in my own 35 years of clinical experience in this gentle touch practice.
