April 2015 Newsletter
It is an exciting time to be alive. As this newsletter arrives in your inbox I am in Jupiter Beach, Florida at the Beyond the Dura – CranioSacral conference where we are celebrating 30 years of The Upledger Institute International (UII). Dr. John Upledger’s legacy lives on in each one of us as we use the skills and tools he taught us, expanding his vision on out into the world in a bigger way.
In the last 15 years we have seen some amazing new brain research, offering break-through insights on head injuries, emotional trauma and chronic illnesses of all kinds. The exciting part is that much of it affirms Dr. Upledger’s concepts of a cellular intelligence — the ‘Inner Physician’ — that body wisdom that continually regenerates, renews and restores our health, given the right circumstances. CST practitioners get to facilitate and witness these ideal circumstances unfolding everyday in our practices. I feel honored to be a part of this movement toward health.
My exploration into the power of presence has grown and flourished in this rich environment as well. It has become quite clear what a huge part each therapist’s presence plays in every healing interaction. So I was elated to receive word earlier this week that “Developing and Deepening Your CranioSacral Presence” will be premiering under the UII umbrella of CST courses later this year. We will update you as those classes roll out.
NEXT, noted author Kate Mackinnon and I have teamed up with 18 other experts for an online webinar that supports the growth and skill enhancement of our CranioSacral community. It starts on May 4th with early registration ending April 26th so be sure and check that out and save $200 while you grow and learn with an international community of other therapists – all from the comfort of your own living room or office!
As I said in my opening paragraph, these are exciting times. Come join me and a wonderful cadre of instructors as we spread the power of presence and how it creates more effective treatment outcomes with a deeper sense of connection and ease in your life!
