THE LIVING MATRIX


NEAR GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN

* NOVEMBER 25TH-28TH 2021 *

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

Teaching will be in English

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.

BREATH OF LIFE - PERCEPTUAL SKILLS AND STATES OF BALANCE


IN KIEV, UKRAINE

* MARCH 10TH-13TH 2022 *

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

Teaching will be in English and translated into Ukrainian/Russian

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, helping to access 'states of balance' and working with the underling forces that organize our form and function.

TOPICS COVERED WILL INCLUDE:

  • Palpation and perception
  • Practitioner fulcrums and the ritual of contact
  • The primary respiratory system and unfoldments of the Breath of Life
  • Therapeutic presence, the practitioner neutral and being to being interconnection
  • The wide perceptual field and perceptual shifts
  • Perception and palpation of the 3-Tides
  • The midline and our embryological development
  • The midline as an organising fulcrum, connecting polarities and paradoxes
  • Palpating expressions of health within tissues and fluids
  • Perceiving patterns of experience and inertial fulcrums
  • Perception of the tides: the cranial rhythmic impulse, the mid-tide and the long tide
  • Appreciating the role of our essential blueprint for health and its embryological origins
  • Understanding and perceiving biodynamic and conditional forces
  • Introduction to 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 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 (1): letting go of conditioned motion and orienting to the 'holistic shift’
  • Moving from local to systemic states of balance
  • Long tide synchronization.
