Craniosacral Biodynamics Training Program – Introduction

Peggy Reynolds and staff offer a two-year intensive training in Craniosacral Biodynamics. Successful completion of the course leads to a professional Certification in Craniosacral Therapy. The professional training consists of seven 4-day seminars given over the space of one year and four 5-day seminars given over the second year. You can take the first year only but will not be eligible for your registration until you complete the second year.

Our approach to craniosacral work is a direct reflection of the teachings of Franklyn Sills, RPP, RCST, Director of the Karuna Institute in Devon, England and author of The Polarity Process and Craniosacral Biodynamics. Sills emphasizes the power of intentional intuitive dialogue with the client’s system. Through practitioner/client interaction, the system reveals its shapes and patterns and mobilizes its own resources to return to its core blueprint pattern of health and vitality. Sills’ integrated approach to Craniosacral Therapy originates in the teachings of William Sutherland, DO, founder of Cranial Osteopathy, who viewed the Breath of Life as the foundation of healing.

Other important influences in our Craniosacral training include Dr. Ray Castellino’s pre- and perinatal research and methods, and Dr. Peter Levine’s “Somatic Experiencing” system for trauma resolution. Process Training. Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America is the source of certification for Craniosacral Therapy based on the “Breath of Life” approach taught by Franklyn Sills. This certification applies only to the Sills 50-day curriculum, not other Craniosacral courses offered around the country by other organizations.

See the Training Dates page for costs.

A $250.00 non-refundable deposit will hold your place. The remainder of the class fees will be due 30 days prior to the course.

The first 4-day course is also intended to meet the course requirements of Ray Castellino and Myrna Martin’s Pre and Peri-Natal Birth Training. You will be expected to attend all of the classes as well as complete all the homework, which will consist of reading, study of anatomy, clinical practicum and write-ups. You will also need to receive 10 sessions of craniosacral work from a Registered Cranial Sacral Therapist over the time of your study. The fee for these sessions is not included in the class cost. You will pay the therapist individually, their approximate fees are $80.00 to $150.00 per session.

Once you have completed the above, you will receive a diploma of completion, which entitles you to apply for your Registered Cranial Sacral Therapy status through the Biodynamic Craniosacral Association Of North America.
