Advanced CranioSacral Therapy
What's it like deep inside the body mind?
What does my brain and body feel like from the inside out?
How can i describe the saturation and illumination of my inner worlds?
We are stillness, not stuckness
we are waves, not particles
we are safe
and Life is OmniPresent, boundless, inexhaustible.
We are That.
CranioSacral opens the core of this thing called body/mind,
the center where Love is known
as the world outside us temporarily disappears.
The first time a chiropractor touched me this way, for only a few moments in 1991,
I reverted back to being an infant,
all soft, luminous and aware.
I wondered what the man had done, with my head simply resting in his gentle neutral hands?
When I experienced my first longer session
I had so many huge Aha's, I came away awestruck, gob-smacked !
The biggest realization was the recognition of Oneness, that nothing was separate from anything else and
I was the common Presence in all of it.
I also experienced myself as bright light, fluid, boundless and familiar.
And, I discovered myself dialoguing with a child I had lost through an abortion in my late teens.
We spoke at length and I set him free with gratitude and deep appreciation,
hugging him and my 19 year old self, integrating the illusion of our separateness
and releasing the guilt I had carried for so long in my psyche and cells.
That first craniosacral journey, in Feb 1996, fundamentally changed my life forever,
yet it was just the tiniest beginning.
... describes the ebb and flow of tidal waves within a semi-hydraulic self-aware system
called cerebral-spinal fluid
produced in the ventricles of the brain,
rich in nutrients and intelligence
designed to cleanse and illuminate
our entire brain and central nervous system.
From here all other systems of the body/mind are nourished and re-charged as well.
The therapy is extremely gentle yet powerful.
It is like a magic key unlocking access to every part of us whose call for Love and belonging has gone unanswered.
Since 1997, I have studied to advanced levels in this field through The Upledger Institute
Cranial Sacral Therapy dovetails perfectly with 'Embodiment' practice
as it soothes, revitalizes and recalibrates our entire central nervous system,
deep in our core, by blending with the tissues & cerebral-spinal fluid that
flow through the center of our being.
Somato Emotional Release occurs when 'energy cysts' or matrixes,
containing stored emotional & mental content, gently and gracefully release
after years, decades, and lifetimes, of restriction and unconscious fear.
Sometimes this occurs in silence and other times via therapeutic dialogue, but the release is always tissue-based, in addition to transforming through emotional,
mental, astral and spiritual fields of the body/mind.
Cranial Sacral Therapy is highly effective for:
chronic pain, migraines
learning disabilities, autism
shock, post-traumatic stress
birth, dental, physical & emotional trauma
anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue
Infants, toddlers, failure to thrive, colic
ear & sinus infections
vertigo, tinnitus, TMJ
restricted fascial membranes
motor vehicle accidents
asthma, auto-immune, arthritis
neurological disorders, scoliosis
brain & spinal injuries, concussions
insomnia, toxicity, seizure disorders
conflicted mental & emotional states
..... & more
CranioSacral Therapy encourages all systems in the body/mind/spirit
to soften, rebalance, detoxify and expand in increased mobility,
conscious awareness, health and well being.
