Are you ready for the next step in your personal and professional growth? Does a dynamic stillness call you? Would deeper presence and ability to “listen” be of benefit in your work and your life? Are you interested in learning the practical skills of Craniosacral Therapy?

In this two year training we will immerse ourselves in fluid dynamics in the body as the interface between the energetic and physical bodies, ever deepening practitioner skills of presence and pacing; physical, fluid, and energetic anatomy; embryology and pre-, peri-, & post-natal effects; interpersonal neurobiology; trauma resolution skills; and practical application of specific craniosacral holds. The two-year length of this training allows the student time to reclaim, learn, and integrate the personal and perceptual skills and shifts needed to foster healing at this depth and to master the large amount of cross-disciplinary material. 

The course is composed of 13 4-day modules, home study (reading, anatomy study, short written assignments), and practice hours for a total of 700 hours. Classroom time is a balance of experiential and instructional material, along with demonstrations and practice sessions. Upon completion of required coursework, and instructor recommendation, you will be eligible to apply to the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America for the status of Registered Craniosacral Therapist (RCST®).  






BCST Prerequisites: You do not need previous bodywork experience. This is a 2-year stand alone course designed to prepare you to be a practitioner. However, a certain amount of prerequisite anatomy & physiology study is required to graduate. If you are not already a practitioner with these courses, speak with the instructor about how you can meet these requirements.
