In their thirteenth year of cutting-edge collaboration between the movement world of Continuum and the hands-on world of CranioSacral therapy, Emilie Conrad and Suzanne Scurlock-Durana continue to pursue the vastness of the human experience.
Our concern in these tumultuous times is to deepen our potential to source ourselves in greater life-supporting ways. Our current capacity to be present is an accumulation of all of our experiences up to now; our goal is to increase this experiential range. The facility to fully feel our bodies as a vibrant flow of moving energy with healthy boundaries and with resources that are life-enhancing becomes ever more vital in today’s world. The artistry of life is dependent upon the loosening of our defensive postures that compromise the richness of existence. Once loosened, we have access to the energy of love, of eros. Suzanne writes in Full Body Presence, “The energy of love is what causes the ignition of the alchemy of true healing to take place; transforming tight, painful, wounded places into connected, healed components of who we are. When this alchemy is complete, out of our deepest wounds can come our greatest gifts.”
All bio cosmic information arrives in waves and spirals but often cannot penetrate our dense, conditioned tissue. Tissue restrictions, from a cellular level, through our organ structures out to our skin, repel the richness of bio-cosmic information. This leaves us experiencing the world from the narrow perceptual lens of linear time. When we are missing the capacity to sense what is going on in the present moment of our bodies, the only alternative is to orient ourselves through our past history locking us into a repetitive informational circuit.
Emilie writes in Life on Land, “Movement = nourishment = information.” Breath and healing sound - coupled with conscious awareness - are some of the most effective means to develop sensory receptors within our tissue structures, as well as expanding our time/space orientation. In this workshop we will combine the non-invasive touch and presence of CranioSacral therapy with the spacious inner world of Continuum to release old, limiting patterns, whether conceptually or physically. This allows us to step into our full body presence, where we feel the cellular radiance effortlessly exuding a unifying atmosphere feeding all that we do, create and touch.
This course is designed for health care practitioners of all levels as well as anyone wanting to learn about using Continuum in a healing way. The only prerequisite is that you know how to touch non-invasively.
