Biodynamic Basics

A four-day introduction to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

(and Part One of our Biodynamic Foundation Training)

with Margery Chessare and Molly Deutschbein

April 11-14, 2018  •  Beverly, MA

Presented by Au Soleil Healing

We are delighted to present a four-day introductory workshop in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy--the perfect place to begin if you're eager to experience the beauty and effectiveness of this growing field.

"The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing."

  • Learn how and why Biodynamic CST differs from other models of craniosacral therapy. Explore the history, principles and terminology.     
  • Gain tools that will enable you to slow down, so you can treat your clients at their own pace.     
  • Experience the balancing strength and clarity of your own ever-present midline.     
  • Deepen your perceptual skills; find the quiet within you.     
  • A new way of approaching bodywork: not-doing versus doing.          
  • Meet your Fluid Body: fluid origins, fluid systems, fluid health.     
  • Lessons from the natural world: Tides, Spaciousness, Stillness, Respiration. 
  • Discover the magnificence of the human embryo and its role in the practice of Biodynamic CST.
  • Neuroscience, anatomy, physiology, birth psychology, epigenetics and more shape our understanding and application of this gentle modality.

Biodynamic Basics is a stand-alone course. For those eager to take the leap, Biodynamic Basics is now required as Part One of our three-year Biodynamic Foundation Training, which begins each winter.

"Thank you again for such a wonderful and awakening beginning!  I look at everything so differently, the patterns of bark on a tree, the snow drifts, the subtle movement of tree branches . . . . it all leads me to a flowing mental picture that I have been using in my work. Thank you very much for all of your time, thought and love for what you do because it truly translated into a beautiful and informative experience.  I am so very excited for the year and all to come!"

- Carianne Russo, LMT, BCST
