Enhance your energy and bodywork practice by learning basic craniosacral therapy, in a Native American way. Originated by indigenous people, it uses touch and manipulation with deep energy to restore function and flow to the fascia and musculoskeletal system, resets the nervous system, and heals you from trauma, physical injuries, and chronic pain.
In this class we will learn to:
- Observe with the eye of an indigenous person
- Integrate smudging
- Call in the directions/spirit; re-inspirit body areas
- Pray with song, dance, drums, rattles, and feathers
- Review theory/ anatomy
- Learn to listen to the craniosacral rhythm
- Balance the cerebrospinal fluid, and much more
Note: Students should bring: a rattle, a smudging feather, sage smudge stick, a drum, and a notepad.
