A woman receives CranioSacral Therapy

Knowing how to successfully hold a therapeutic presence for our clients/patients is a vital skill for every bodyworker in today’s stress-filled world. From her thirty years of clinical and teaching experience, Suzanne Scurlock-Durana, CST-D has developed this groundbreaking workshop. It provides the foundation for working successfully with client populations of all kinds.

 

• Want to learn simple breaths that naturally calm your clients as you use it to relax yourself?

• Curious to explore two profound portals into the nervous system that down-regulate the fight-flight-freeze response in the body?

• Ready to explore how you can use your sacrum as a deep resource for healing?

• Eager for kinesthetic clarity about how to model healthy boundaries in sessions?

• Need experience in bone-deep steadiness, clarity and strength for times of emotional challenge?

This cutting edge workshop combines hands-on protocols and therapeutic presence, teaching you how to cultivate your own navigational field for more effective treatment outcomes for whatever client population you work with.

This workshop fulfills the prerequisite for most Healing From the Core advanced level trainings.

Prerequisite

CranioSacral Therapy 1 (CS1) via The Upledger Institute.

If you are not a CranioSacral Therapist and would like to experience this course, we invite you to attend a Healing From the Core: Full Body Presence: Grounding & Healthy Boundaries or Full Body Presence: Skills to Energize Your Life workshop.

Testimonials

This class experience helped to full a void I have felt...

January 2016

I found that this class experience helped to fill a void I have felt in most of the energy modalities I have learned in the past 25 years. This course helped me to move deeper into my own experiences of grounding, filling up my energy container, and sharing energy (love) with these people on the massage table. It also has helped me to know myself deeper and know some of my shadow pieces, therefore allowing me to discern between what is my stuff and how to not project my stuff onto the client.

I appreciate the many years of experience Suzanne brings and the depths to which she took us. The pace was slow enough as to not feel rushed and allowed me to grok the course material.

January 2016

This course teaches you skills not only to be a more present and grounded in treatment with your clients, but also more present and grounded in your life. These skills can be utilized in every interaction, with people, animals and self.

Learn to navigate the sea of energy we live in – be grounded, be present and explore yourself within. Then experience the magic your grounded present energy can bring to your clients. By being more present you work stronger from your heart — from your core.

January 2016

As an ‘Advanced’ CST practitioner, I felt a new, deeper level of blending/melding with the patient. The course also was a profound reminder to slow down as a practitioner, and allow the process to unfold naturally. I am deeply grateful to Suzanne and the TA’s for facilitating my growth for a higher level of healing for my patients and myself.

January 2016

Suzanne and her staff are absolutely brilliant at what they do. I came away from this class a completely different person. I have been studying CST since 2012 and this is the first time someone was able to explain grounding and holding space in a way that I could understand.

I learned how to be able to access that place at any moment and the change in my palpation was instant. There is still a lot of work to do, but Suzanne and her team have started me on an incredible journey of self-discovery. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

January 2016

Beautifully orchestrated class flow!! Having taken CS1, I felt this was a great choice for me to take before CS2. Learning to be more present, solid, and more fully in my own body was very necessary to move forward as a CranioSacral Therapist.

With a background in Physical Therapy Assistant and Neuromuscular LMT, I felt confident with my abilities to work helping clients relieve the physical tensions in their bodies. However, the emotional component of the physical issues for myself and my clients was not always addressed or even acknowledged.

I have always recognized that to facilitate another you have to have felt it for yourself, in your own tissue.

This workshop has created a safe environment to learn to be present and aware of the sensations within my body and the emotions that are within me. I’ve learned some great tools to work with my energetic body to strengthen and expand my awareness and physical body so that I may be more solid and true for my client.

I have found a most endearing group of creative, fearless, and knowledgeable CS Therapists that I can move forward [with] on my path to learning more about my own healing so I may more fully and gracefully shine the light to others on their paths of healing!

January 2016

I have completed CranioSacral Level I and this class was perfect timing at this point in my life. I now feel that I CAN continue this work in practice and also in my own personal life. I have a feeling of contentment for the first time in many years. I’m excited to continue learning and have already signed up for CS2.

I can't even put into words how that will impact the level of healing...

January 2016

After the 1st day of class, I gave my husband a mini cranio session. It was the best treatment I ever gave. I knew where a release was going to happen. I was able to feel everything with greater ease.

As Joanna [Haymore, certified Instructor] said, ‘My hands felt more informed’ – I was doing lunar breathing throughout the treatment.
Day 2 – I feel expansion and growth as a practitioner and a person.
Day 3 – I feel my aura expand.

This course is valuable for any healer, the ability to tap into another person’s inner body wisdom – I can’t even put into words how that will impact the level of healing that my patients will receive.

January 2016

The simplicity and application of Suzanne’s work, gave me the opportunity to delve within my own potency. Tapping, exploring and integrating the body-mind-spirit unity. To then reenliven and sharing with my community.

I’m in Love, I’m in learning…

I felt the CranialSacral rhythm for the first time on day one...

January 2016

For someone who is new to energy work, and coming from a corporate background, Developing and Deepening CranioSacral Presence was an invaluable course that not only taught me techniques on how to have a grounded presence and clear boundaries, it also helped me further develop my palpation skills. I have only been practicing CranialSacral Therapy for 8 months, and felt the CranialSacral rhythm for the first time on day one of the course. I now understand how important it is to be fully grounded before tuning in with the body, and I know with the tools I learned in the course, my ability to feel the rhythm will become stronger. I am very excited to continue my journey of changing my career to more soul-centered work within CranialSacral Therapy and energy healing. Thank you, Suzanne, for creating this new course!
