Course Syllabus

Module One
Relationship, the Neutral and the Breath of Life

Module Two
The Ground of Resource and Motion:
The Holistic Shift, the Mid-tide and Motility

The intention of this module is to begin to appreciate the specific manifestations of the Breath of Life and the Health inherent within the body. The module begins with the theme of health. Students learn to orient to change in state within the client’s system called the holistic shift. This is an important shift from the conditions present in the system, to primary respiration and inherent resources. Students also explore the stillpoint concept in order to help a client’s system access the holistic shift and inherent resources. The main emphasis of this module orients students to the mid-tide and tissue motility. The action of primary respiration generates a palpable inner motility, or inherent motion, within all tissues and tissue structures. Initially, awareness of intra-osseous motility is explored within the major bony structures of the cranium and pelvis. Specific palpation sessions relating to the reciprocal tension membranes and the temporal, frontal, parietal, occipital and sphenoid bones and the sacrum are undertaken. The dynamics of the sphenobasilar junction is also introduced. Within this context, the importance of embryologically derived organizing fulcrums is also introduced. Verbal skills are introduced via the Focusing process, as developed by Dr. Eugene Gendlin.
