I practice Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, emphasis on Biodynamic. Your body informs me what it needs to work through and reveal in the moment and I support that. There's really an easy elegance to healing. Our focus is the innate expression of health; all the subtle rhythms of your living form and what's trying to happen that may be blocked by any number of things. Instead of analyzing what's wrong, we attune to what's right and that trusting, generous reassurance within your body will encourage the blocks to relax and let the floodgates open. In a word, it's all about FLOW.
The core of our bodies is a tube of fine cerebral spinal fluid, always flowing like a tide, head to tail; a continuum of fluid gravitational movement, like the ocean with the moon, like a dance. As the whole system opens to this rhythmic flow, more and more of the body fluids, organs and tissues take part and clear communication opens inside. Like I said, it is elegant!
There is an unbounded unity referred to as dynamic stillness which includes all episodes of experience, all impulses and changes of life. I suspect the pure experience of dynamic stillness might be the same as how we describe experience of Spirit. When we're feeling and allowing this flowing life force that's always unconditionally within our bodies as long as we're alive, the specific pathways for healing start to open up and the whole body/mind is able to reestablish its own connections.
We are primarily focusing on the health that's already here, which naturally invites the discordant aspects of the whole system to rejoin its flow, whereas many forms of body therapy primarily focus on the injury or discord. It's a shift in perspective from the usual segmented way of perceiving. My sessions are directed by the client's body wisdom - the particular experiences of this life - physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, genetic, other unknowns. There is a truthfulness in this approach that the wisdom of the body/mind recognizes, opening the door for surprising, relieving discoveries to happen.
I work with the body so my focus is not psychological processing. We make room for any information that shows up, allowing it to rest in the safety of the healing body. I find it liberating that the actual geography of life - the body - is where we rest our faith. This is where true healing happens.
** When the tissues release the habit, so does the mind. Imagine, if your tissues relax and no longer have to hold on to your history then your history is finally able to resolve into your life's journey of learning, resiliency and wisdom.
Imagine no longer needing to manage and monitor your health because you've finally come into direct, aware connection with your true health. It is possible, so why not?
