Description: Focusing on the stress cascade and its nuclei is a totally new way of releasing trauma without having to know how the trauma originally occurred. Explore the brain as an electric system and how we store unresolved trauma in its nuclei. Understanding these nuclei and their connections leads to finding their exact location and this gives us the opportunity to release their ‘stuck energy,’ thereby emptying their unresolved past experiences.
Explore the role of the reticular alarm system and how we can lower its threshold.
You will also review the parasympathetic nervous system and its hormones, and how to release/unfreeze it when it is stuck. The course includes lecture, instructor demonstration, and plenty of hands-on practice.
Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:
Meals: One hour lunch break - Bring a sack lunch or eat in Bastyr's dining commons
Location: Bastyr University Kenmore Campus, room 146. Bastyr University is housed in an older facility with fluctuating interior temperatures; it is advisable to wear layers. Also, Bastyr is a “fragrance-free” campus.

His work encompasses the evolution from a bio-mechanical (Upledger) to a bio-dynamic approach (Sutherland/Sills). 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.
