Colin Perrow R.C.S.T., B.C.S.T. - Colin is a renowned international teacher of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. He has been a senior teacher at the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust in London and a Course Co-ordinator and at the Karuna Institute, where he was one of the teachers who helped to create the Biodynamic approach. Colin has practiced Zen and Mindfulness for 30 years, which enables him to bring clarity and humour to his work. His teaching is grounded in his 25 years of experience running a successful private practice in South Wales. Before he graduated as a Craniosacral Therapist in 1990, he was a successful healer and one of the leading practitioners of Kirlian photography in the UK. This energy photography gave Colin valuable insights into the relationship between mind, body and spirit and the nature of health. His early research came to fruition in Biodynamic Craniosacral work and the creation of his advanced "Heartfullness" classes. Rather than using a traditional top-down approach, where the teacher instructs the student into how their experience should be, Colin is particularly interested in teaching people to become aware of their own experience and to create a learning environment where this is supported.

THE LIVING MATRIX

IN HAMBURG, GERMANY
OCTOBER 4TH-7TH 2018

WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

Teaching will be in English and translated into German

Dr. Still, the founder of Osteopathy, wrote, “The soul of man, with all the streams of pure living water, seems to dwell in the fascia of his body”. Recent scientific findings show that rather than simply being a connecting and enveloping tissue, fascia is a ‘liquid crystalline matrix’ that acts as a communication system for the whole body. Fascia is highly innervated with specialized sensory nerves that relay information to the central nervous system and help regulate body physiology. It also plays a central role in the bio-tensegrity of the body. During this workshop, we will explore the new science of fascia and apply this knowledge with practical Biodynamic Craniosacral approaches on the treatment tables.

TOPICS COVERED WILL INCLUDE:

  • fascial cells and the living matrix
  • the role of myofibroblasts in fascia
  • fascia as a communication system
  • the sensory nerves in fascia that respond to soft touch
  • tensegrity and biotensegrity
  • fascial hydration and reciprocal tension
  • differentiating superficial and deep fascia
  • the psoas fascia and its interconnections to the kidneys, diaphragm, bladder and pelvic organs
  • the role of thoracolumbar fascia in lower back pain
  • working with the midline function in long bones: "power points"
  • fascial connections between the sphenoid and heart.

FLUID FIELDS AND FORCES - EMBRYOLOGICAL PATTERNS OF ORGANISATION

IN PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
NOVEMBER 29TH-DECEMBER 2ND 2018
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

Teaching will be in English and translated into Czech

The biodynamic model of Craniosacral Therapy is based on an understanding of the forces of creation. In the human embryo these forces organize the movements that take place during our growth and development, and carry an essential ordering matrix into the body that acts as a blueprint for health. Segmental fields of organisation appear during our embryological development, which orchestrate the growth, development and healing of all the tissues that grow within those segments. These fields of organisation continue throughout our lives, maintaining and healing our form and function. Therefore, by working at the level of these 'fluid fields' it becomes possible to treat a wide variety of conditions at a deeper level of organisation. During this seminar we will explore these embryological expressions of health, as well as the impact of conditioning experiences that can occur throughout life. There will be ample time for table work, reflection and meditation.

AREAS EXPLORED WILL INCLUDE:

  • deepening into the wholistic shift; being a single drop in the ocean of primary respiration
  • dynamics of conception and implantation; the inner cell body, outer cell body and connecting stalk
  • natural fulcrums of the three embryological germ layers: the third ventricle, heart and umbilicus
  • the branchial arches and their derivatives
  • embryological fluid fields of the head, face and throat and the formation of the face
  • relating to cranial bones, facial bones, cranial nerves and muscles via the embryological fluid fields
  • significance of the 'social engagement system' and polyvagal theory . embryological fluid fields of the spine
  • relating to vertebrae, spinal nerves, muscles, ligaments and viscera through fluid fields
  • facilitated segments revisited
  • working with embryological triads and the upper embryological triad of the sphenoid, occiput and atlas
  • our original blueprint for health; the perfection that lies at our core.

BREATH OF LIFE - PERCEPTUAL SKILLS AND STATES OF BALANCE

IN HOLLAND
FEBRUARY 28TH-MARCH 3RD 2019
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

Teaching will be in English

This seminar will explore core diagnostic and treatment skills in biodynamic craniosacral practice. The pioneer of this approach, Dr. William Sutherland, realised that the 'Breath of Life' is our deepest resource for healing which operates with the utmost intelligence and precision. In this workshop practitioners will learn how to appreciate and support the supremacy of the 'Breath of Life' as a therapeutic medium, and how to deepen into the heart of the healing process. An emphasis will be placed on working with the deeper rhythms of primary respiratory motion and helping to access 'states of balance'.

Areas explored will include:

  • The biodynamic paradigm
  • Palpation and perception
  • Practitioner fulcrums and the ritual of contact
  • Therapeutic presence; mindfulness, the practitioner neutral and being to being interconnection
  • The primary respiratory system and unfoldments of the Breath of Life
  • The wide perceptual field and perceptual shifts
  • Perception and palpation of the tides: the cranial rhythmic impulse, the mid-tide and the long tide
  • Palpating expressions of health within tissues and fluids
  • Perceiving patterns of experience and inertial fulcrums
  • Appreciating the role of our essential blueprint for health and its embryological origins
  • Understanding and perceiving biodynamic and conditional forces
  • Trauma and overwhelm, resources and health
  • Understanding and perceiving the role of balance and stillness in the healing process
  • The heart of the healing process - 'states of balance'
  • Orienting to the wholeness
  • Perceiving the unit of function of tissue, fluid and potency
  • Dr. Rollin Becker's work and 'three step healing process': (1) tissues and fluids seek a state of balance; (2) perceiving expressions of health within states of balance; (3) perceiving tissue and fluid reorganization
  • Following the inherent treatment plan: letting go of conditioned motion and orienting to the 'holistic shift'
  • Moving from local to systemic states of balance
  • Long tide exercise on the tables
  • Clinical connections and applications.

CONNECTING TO THE SOURCE

IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK
* MARCH 28TH – 31ST 2019 *
WITH MICHAEL KERN D.O., B.C.S.T., A.B.D., N.D.

Teaching will be in English

The biodynamic model of Craniosacral Therapy is based on an understanding of the forces of creation. In the human embryo these forces organize the movements that take place during our growth and development, and carry an essential ordering matrix into the body that acts as a blueprint for health. These original dynamics continue throughout our lives to organize our form and function. This advanced workshop will help practitioners deepen into the heart of the healing process and explore this ground from which all expressions of life and motion emerge. It will enable us to “re-source”; to connect to our nature and to what lies beneath any patterns of suffering or distress. We will learn how to synchronise with, support and be touched by the supremacy of the ‘Breath of Life’ as a therapeutic medium.

Areas explored will include:

  • Suspensory nature of the three bodies
  • What is health? A “still small voice”
  • Expressions of Health
  • Appreciating our embryological origins and blueprint for health; the perfection that lies at the core
  • Deepening into the wholistic shift
  • Orienting to the inner embryo
  • Dynamics of conception and implantation via the glabella and the hands as connecting stalks
  • Embryological fulcrums - orienting to the 3rd ventricle, heart and umbilicus
  • Still points via the three bodies; orienting to the “idling” at the end of three tides
  • The automatic shifting of potency
  • Dynamo motion and the ignition spark at the 3rd ventricle
  • Orienting to stillpoints in the room and asking a question
  • Orienting to the inherent divinity within ourselves and others.
