Craniosacral Residential Training

I am teaching Craniosacral Therapy and trauma work in a residential setting near Frankfurt / Germany.

This training will provide you with a solid foundation in the Craniosacral method, in both the biomechanical and the biodynamic approaches. You will learn the history of Craniosacral Therapy, study the anatomy and physiology of the Craniosacral system and learn key positions for working with this method.

You will learn different approaches and you will study methods of palpation to work with this very subtle yet powerful method.
Most importantly, you will experience the ‘breath of life’ in your own body.

You will also learn the basics of working with shock and trauma, according to the work of Peter Levine and how to hold space for people who have experienced very traumatic events in their lives. The combination of  Craniosacral therapie and extra tools and knowledge about trauma work deepens our capacity to release trauma and stress in a gentle way.

This training is particularly suitable for those who already have knowledge of medicine, body work and/or energetic work or are practitioners in these fields (e.g. physiotherapists, massage therapists, doctors, VortexHealing® practitioners etc.).

The training course beginning in October 2019 consists of 3 modules (120 training hours) taught over a 12-month period.

The next Training course beginning in March 2022 consists of 2 modules – two 6-day modules. Module 4 and 5 – two 6 – day modules for advanced technics , can be attended if you participated in Module 1, 2 and or for the students who attended the course in 2019/2020.

The course will be given in English so participants need a good understanding of the English language in order to be accepted on the course.

The number of course participants is kept low (max. 12) to ensure maximum individual attention.

An additional bonus on this course is the delicious vegetarian meals prepared for you by Nadi. Most dietary requirements can be catered for.

Residential Setting

The setting in which one learns this subtle art of Craniosacral Therapy is very important.

This Craniosacral Residential Training takes place in Zentrum Vöckelsbach which is located in the beautiful countryside of the Odenwald, near Frankfurt, where the magnificent views and tranquil surroundings invite mindfulness.

The venue is used all year around for training in Craniosacral Therapy so the hosts are adept at providing a welcoming and supportive environment, which allows students to drop deeply into the work.
