The world and the universe is indeed a very large place. When we look at humanity within this milieu one must always keep in mind that the very nature of this examination would force one to focus on certain elements. To try and consider all factors, micro or macro, would be problematic and overwhelming. Ergo, when we look at the nature of trauma we run into similar problems, a fact supported by the very number of therapies available, each with their own discriminating lens.
In the Anatomy of Trauma™ workshops we choose to start with a focus on dynamic anatomy as there is no cell, no muscle, no tissue that is not driven by an innovating principle. The difference between the living and the dead is this animating/organising force. Thus we start with the physical, understanding that there is a body/mind/spirit continuum.
In trauma, this body/mind/spirit must be considered. The body is the receptacle of our total life experience and memories reside throughout. The nature of trauma is such that the psyche is always involved as the ‘event’ is ever present and, if not resolved, can and will express itself physically.
During the 36 hours we will discuss the following and learn the ‘hands on’ corrective techniques:
- The difference between injury and trauma.
- The biology of trauma.
- The biology of consciousness
- The Sutherland cranial chart in depth and corrections.
- Cranial and somatic dysfunction and corrections.
- Somatic visceral dysfunction and corrections.
- Traumatic distortions of the fascial lines and the corrections.
- Understanding anatomical and directional forces
- Palpation and the concept of energy cyst release
- Somato-visceral concepts
We will also learn to discern human cues using the five senses.
This is intense four day workshop is in a retreat setting. Due to the nature of the subject matter and in order to provide adequate individual attention, the class size is limited to twelve participants. It is designed with health care workers in mind yet it can also accommodate those with an intense desire to learn.
The course includes a detailed illustrated manual, an excellent reference toolbox for techniques and related anatomy
