  • Cultivation of embodied self-awareness
  • Enhancement of perceptual awareness via the felt sense (sensual perception)
  • Form & strengthen relationship with the innate healing potential
  • Learn to listen to the wisdom of the body

This course is for anyone who interfaces with other human beings and would like to refine their ability to be present with themselves and others and are interested in the healing power of non-invasive touch.  This course was born from the practice of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and imparts elements of the practice however, it is not limited to those who are interested in the practice of CST.  This study & practice is beneficial for healthcare practitioners such as nurses, massage therapists, Reiki practitioners, ND’s, MD’s, physical therapist, yoga teachers, psychologists, social workers etc. to apply in their area of expertise.  As well as for individuals to apply to their personal life & relationships. The experiential learning brought forth through this course of study is beneficial to life’s relationship with life.

The class size is intentionally kept small to ensure that each student present receive ample hands-on support while engaged in this study.

While we are together we will be exploring tools that support the development of a grounded and centered self while cultivating embodied self-awareness as we give attention to our inner landscape. We will exercise our ability to form and strengthen a relationship with the innate healing potential as we learn to listen to the wisdom of the body.

Each day will begin with discussion followed by a meditation which will then lead into time spent at the table for hands-on exploration of sharing touch while being with Presence.

All participants will receive several hours of treatment during this course. We recommend that participants allow themselves time in the evening to integrate the days treatement to the greatest degree that is possible for them.

We will be offering a discount for those interested in taking this study a step further by attending the Biodynamic Cranial One-Biodynamic Interface workshop that will be offered this fall in addition to attending Biodynamic Touch in September.

Biodynamic Cranial Therapy

Cranial One- Biodynamic Interface

27 CEUs  |  maximum 6 students

At the heart of any healing modality lies the ability to remain present; biodynamic cranial therapy teaches us how. Come learn this subtle yet extremely potent way to facilitate deep healing.

With the Biodynamic approach, we form a relationship to the health already abiding within the client and facilitate it’s expression throughout their entire being.  Their cranial system shows us how to be more present, which enables an intelligent healing potency to express itself freely. Presence unites the practitioner to the natural world, enabling the client to access profound healing resources.

You will learn how to sensitively work with the cranio-sacral system, advance your confidence in subtle palpation skills and experience the profound stillness at the heart of health.  Open to all licensed health-care providers and those enrolled in a health-care training school.

Class sizes are intentionally small and assistants are employed to ensure students confidently integrate the approach.

Ongoing support is available after workshops via Supplements, Treatment Exchanges and Feedback Sessions.

Please go to Todd’s website at to see additional curriculum offered.
