This is a somato emotional trauma release workshop. You will learn how to speak with your clients using your “original voice.” Recognize and use the intelligence of cells and organs, and speak directly to the structures inside the body without the interference of the chattering mind. Thurs, Aug 14 - Sat, Aug 17, Sun, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Instructor: Etienne Peirsman. (29 CEUs, PDAs & CMEs)

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please register by 8/20. We need three more participants by 8/20 to cal it a "go".

Prerequisites: Completion of Craniosacral Therapy - Levels 1 and 2 at Bastyr University’s Continuing Education program since Fall ’12, or instructor permission.

Description: Since therapy is directly dependent on the amount of love that the therapist can allow, everyone who wants to claim this ability has to make sure their heart is as free as possible. You will learn techniques for exploring and releasing constrictions that have been put on your own heart as well as the hearts of your clients. This training allows you to function more smoothly and express more fully. If joy needs to express itself, this is the doorway, and it will change your life forever.

Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to relax the sacrum using meridians from the arm. Identify and remove restrictions of the pelvic bowl including coccyx, sacro-iliac joint and L5-S1
  • Perform, along with another participant, a fascial pull via A-O and via the sacrum
  • List the four rules to awareness
  • Explain to a client the form, function and “how it feels inside” of the spinal column, vertebra, dura mater, craniosacral fluid, spinal cord and peripheral nerves
  • Ask a client to express how they view the inner structures (spinal column, vertebra, dura mater, craniosacral fluid, spinal cord and peripheral nerves)
  • Introduce to a client the cell intelligence of each structure (spinal column, vertebra, dura mater, craniosacral fluid, spinal cord and peripheral nerves)

Please Bring: Blanket and wear comfortable loose-fitting clothes.

Meals: One hour lunch break - Bring a sack lunch or eat in Bastyr's dinning commons.

Etienne Peirsman, MM, is a biology and physical education teacher who has been involved with emotional training, encounter work, primal healing and meditation since 1974. He began teaching craniosacral (CS) in 1991, and founded several CS institutes in Belgium and the Netherlands. He is the founder and director of PCSA (Peirsman Cranio Sacral Academy) in the Netherlands. He is also the originator of the cranialsacral school in Holland which began as a result of his students becoming professionals. As a result, he has a grandfather status in that organization and is an honorary member of the professional organization: The Netherland's Cranio Sacral Practitioner Association (NCSV). Additionally, he has taught CS at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts since 2008.

Etienne is the author of the book Craniosacral Therapy for Babies and Small Children, published by North Atlantic Books in 2006. His work encompasses the evolution from bio-mechanical (Upledger) to bio-dynamic techniques (Sutherland). His specialty is the expression of the heart, the long tide and their connection to meditation and enlightenment. He has said “Drop the word therapy. It is not part of who and what we are.  Face it, you are perfect and your heart is perfect”.
