Overview of Course Content:

The entire series is designed to nurture and enable you to become a confident, competent, compassionate and effective Integrated Craniosacral Therapist. Integrated Craniosacral Therapy is a non-intrusive, gentle touch technique that works on the body/mind complex and can help in alleviating a wide range of problems – from minor aches and pains to deep-rooted trauma. Simply put, you will be able to give therapy and relive someone in pain without causing more pain.

CST is more than a century old and has a rich legacy of techniques and literature. You will be exposed to key concepts and the correct protocols of this technique which will lay a strong foundation for you to grow in this exciting field.

We believe that ICST is a unique combination of technical knowledge of the human body and spiritual practices in action. To succeed as a therapist, you will need knowledge of human anatomy, cultivate body awareness and develop the ability to meditate. All these are part of our training.

Each seminar will have a spiritual component that will include Techniques and Knowledge to go deep within oneself – the place where true healing comes from. This will be part of the daily routine of the course, not something done on the side, because we firmly believe that to truly learn ICST you will need to know and practice meditation and learn about the human body-mind complex from the Craniosacral perspective.

Everything on our seminars is designed to be learned mostly through experience. There will be many, many hands-on sessions. Students giving sessions to other students and students giving and taking sessions from the teaching and tutor teams.

Anatomy and physiology that is required to be learned will be dealt with through interactive group sessions, games and projects. Concepts from Adult Learning Theory and NLP as well as studying techniques discussed in our book Ready Study Go! – Smart ways to learn, will be used throughout the seminar series to facilitate the study of the subject material and hopefully make the entire experience deep, intuitive and fun.

You don’t need to know anything from Adult Learning Theory or NLP, though reading Ready Study Go! and Happiness Express will help you a lot as a student embarking on this healing adventure.
