Ignition and the Midline
A Protocol for Compassion in Biodynamic Practice
This course will detail the five-step process of ignition – spark, ignition, permeation, augmentation and disengagement – on the embryonic midline. These functions of the ignition process bring order and organization to all growth and development of the human body through the life span. This will be demonstrated through lecture, audiovisual presentation, perceptual explorations and session exchanges. Various windows of contact around the cranium, spine and coccyx will be taught to observe the ignition of Primary Respiration and stillness in the third ventricle and heart.
The midline is established with the perception of a three dimensional fluid body. Differentiating the third ventricle, heart, umbilicus and notochord will be taught. This includes deepening into the lateral and longitudinal fluctuations of the fluid body especially around the brain.
Theoretical information will be presented on the field of interpersonal neurobiology and its specific integration into biodynamic practice as an empathy based model. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy will be presented as a protocol for compassion. Midline organization will be differentiated from core regulation and brain development in biodynamic practice. In addition, the deep imprinting of death anxiety on the early embryo and its relationship to dynamic stillness in biodynamic practice will be explored.
- Deepen into the biodynamic experience of interpersonal neurobiology.
- Learn the five-step process of ignition on the midline.
- Practice igniting the third ventricle.
- Evaluate ignition of the fluid body at the coccyx.
Class Prerequisites: (students must have one of the following)
- Graduate of a biodynamic craniosacral foundation training
- 100 hours coursework in craniosacral therapy
- One year clinical experience in craniosacral therapy
