Training biodynamic craniosacral therapy level 8 incl. repetition day 7

The dynamics of birth, a new quality of anchoring the breath of life in the "source" and the phenomenon of ignition.

Course contents

At birth, the child must form a new connection with the breath of life and its potency, so that it can follow with all its strength the idea with which it enters this world. In this context, we call this "Ignition" of the Breath of Life, which connects us once again with our Source. Since the human embryo is perfect and complete in itself at every stage of its development from the moment of conception, the indwelling intelligence of the breath of life unfolds from stillness into the present and seeks connection with our consciousness. If the connection to the indwelling destiny has been weakened, for example, by birth trauma, then the child may become attached to the systemic past and to the history contained in the genetic environment. As a result, it may have to deviate from its original life plan to find a way into this world. We learn how to rekindle this "spark" even when a weakening seems to be perceptible.

This level of training gives us the opportunity to palpate and accompany the birth dynamics in the adult as well as in the child. The impressions on the skull, on the whole body and also the physiological and psychological aspects of birth are discussed. We study the typical female pelvic shapes, the stages of the birth process, we look at the effects that different medical interventions such as cesarean section, induced labor and anesthesia can have on mother and child. We gather information about our own birth experience and about the birth process itself, and learn to connect with the physiological and psychological effects of our own birth experience in a well-grounded way, free of drama in the here and now. We look at how we are shaped emotionally and physically by birth from a variety of perspectives. We also look at the effect that our modern, often technical medical way of giving birth can have on our society. We will learn ways to give tools to young parents in practice that will help them to be intentional about the actual birth and the bonding process after birth. Participants will learn in theory and practice to understand and accompany the complex process of birth in its basic features. They understand the physical, physiological and psychological connections and are able to put them into their own words.
