About Suzanne

(Reston, VA) Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, CMT, CST-D, is one of the world’s leading authorities on conscious awareness and its transformational impact on the healing process.

For more than 30 years she has empowered people with practical tools that enable them to experience joy in each moment without burning out. These skills help improve every aspect of their lives, from their health and well-being to their relationships, their careers, their creativity, even the growth of their businesses.

After decades of perfecting her methods of awakening the body’s innate wisdom, Suzanne created the comprehensive Healing From the Core training curriculum in 1994. Today it includes a robust selection of international workshops, webinars, speaking engagements and audio programs.

Quote by John E. Upledger

One of the original instructors personally mentored by the late Dr. John E. Upledger, Suzanne also continues to teach CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release for the Upledger Institute on nearly every continent. What’s more, she collaborated with the late Emilie Conrad for almost two decades. Together they integrated Emilie’s Continuum Movement with Suzanne’s Full Body Presence to teach other practitioners how to accelerate and deepen the healing process.

Known for her honest, grounded, nurturing manner, Suzanne is adept at weaving together mind, body and spirit to create a unique environment that encourages profound healing.

She is a sought-after speaker who inspires healthcare providers, coaches, executives, parents, clergy and others to stay relaxed and energized using her life-changing tools for dissolving stress, pain, overwhelm and confusion. She also provides ongoing staff development training at the Esalen Institute.

Suzanne has authored hundreds of articles, and thousands visit her blog at Presence Matters: Reflections on Body, Mind and Spirit. Plus, she maintains a private practice in Reston, Virginia, where her clients benefit from the innovative techniques she teaches in her first book, Full-Body Presence: Learning to Listen to Your Body’s Wisdom.

“The way Suzanne teaches and conveys presence is masterful.” – Eric Cornell, IAHE Teaching Assistant
