I want to start off by thanking all the clients who have been experiencing the Heart-focused sessions that I developed.  I will continue offering this package during February as well as introducing a new offering.
Anatomically we have been working with the clavicles, manubrium, ribcage, sternum, diaphragm; energetically the Heart is the realm of feelings and emotions.  Our work in these craniosacral sessions has been to physically release or unwind the Heart and bring it to the midline as well as to help the Heart be light as a feather – the ancient Egyptian requirement for the Heart to enter the heavens.

New Offering – The Eyes

Clarity of Vision The new monthly packages are guided by what I feel coming as well as what you, the clients, express interest in.  Sometimes I think the next month will be focused on a particular topic only to find, as the beginning of the month approaches, that something else is being asked for. This was the case during January when I thought the focus after the Heart was going to be the Diaphragm (psoas release, viscera, lower thoracic spine) but it turns out the focus will be on the Eyes.

I will continue to offer individual sessions in which we can focus on any area of the physical, spiritual, emotional body; these 4-session packages are simply a good way of giving focused attention to one area.

The Eyes: Our whole body is made of collagen or connective tissue, interlaced in a tight weave; the Eyes are the only place where this matrix changes its weave to a grid structure so that it becomes transparent instead of opaque.

For most of us the Eyes are the sense organ that guides our lives.  We take in the world with our Eyes, we watch sunsets, we look both ways at the side of the road, we fall in love at first sight; we use our Eyes all day and when we go to sleep our Eyes do not stop moving nor seeing.  If our eyes cannot see clearly, we lose clarity in seeing our path in life.

The promotional cost of these 4 one-hour sessions is $200 – $300 (sliding scale).

In these eye-focused sessions the main anatomical work will be around the bones of the orbit: frontal, maxilla, zygomatic, ethmoid, palatine, sphenoid and cranial nerves II, III, IV and VI.  Energetically this work is focused on your inner eye and your inner source of light, your being; it is concerned with questions such as “who am I in this world?” and “what do I bring and offer to this world?”.

It is hard to overestimate this work and I invite you to reflect on the following words:

“The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”
Matthew 6:22, King James Bible.

The Spine Voyage

I have been determined on accomplishing my dream of producing anatomical visualizations that I am happy with!
After much work I am happy to present to you The Spine!

I have made this a non-guided visualization and from here on I will be presenting to you a bit of both, guided and non-guided.

The quality of relationship that exists between the client and the therapist is a key factor in the healing process.

In fact, I will venture to say that the quality of the relationship may very well be the essential “technique” for healing.

Here is a short clip highlighting the quality of interaction between therapist and client.

at least as hard

I put together a small clip in an exploration of showing the inner voyages that a client may go on during a craniosacral treatment.  Voyages populated by archetypal images, places and sounds.

Seeing clearly is a phrase that is simple, almost redundant and yet profound, and complicated.  It is obvious that we all want to see clearly; we would like to be able to see our friends clearly, so we can have a clear sense of who they are and where in life they find themselves, and so we can fully understand what they are going through when they open up to us; we would like to see our life path clearly,  allowing us to know which decisions are right, which paths are in line with our watercourse way.

At the same time, the moments or periods when we can safely say that we were seeing clearly tend to be rare.  It is much more accurate to say that our interactions with friends are clouded by our own expectations, desires and our current emotional, physical, spiritual state; that our perception of where we stand in life is vague, shifting from day to day, even hour to hour.  We rarely see a friend in their entirety, and, sadly, rarely are we ourselves seen in our entirety.

 Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small.  We haven’t time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.
– Georgia O’Keefe

 It is possible that you have felt fully seen at some point, maybe by a teacher, or by a friend, and I’d venture to say that it was a life-changing experience, or at least a very memorable one.  The much more common experience is that of not being seen; of not having someone stop long enough to really see you, and listen to you.

My impression is that the very first step to creating a healing relationship is seeing clearly; if a therapist/bodyworker does nothing more than this, sees his/her client clearly, then the session will be a success; if he does everything but that then success is impossible.

 “If you treat a man as he appears to be,
you make him worse than he is.
But if you treat a man as if he already were
What he potentially could be,
You make him what he is destined to be.”
– Wolfgang von Goethe

Heart of Craniosacral

The Heart of Craniosacral – Introduction

As my practice of bodywork and, particularly, craniosacral therapy deepened, I felt the urge to capture some of the essence of this healing work.  Practicing bodywork is navigating a raft down a river during the night; much of what is happening is unseen; the cues for where to touch, which direction to move in, how much pressure to use come in at a very subtle level.  How would it be possible to capture and show this through film?

In August of 2011 I took a step to capturing the unspoken essence of Visionary Craniosacral work (VCSW) as taught by the founder, Hugh Milne.  As a test run, I filmed while participating in one of the VCSW workshops and put together a short clip.
This is an introduction, I hope it can transmit some of the key elements involved in this work.  Key elements such as gentle touch, full presence, attention, caring as well as some mystery.
