I like an adventure.
I recently undertook a massive adventure that left me doubting and positive and pretty much everything in-between.
The adventure; Advanced Course 1 for CranioSacral Therapists down in Somerset. This involved a weeks residential learning with 11 other therapists to further develop the skills already gained under the guidance of the Upledger Institute.
We were then split into smaller groups where we each had a turn as a client, therapist then helper so that we could develop a better understanding of what happens during a treatment, a way of getting me to have the experience that you, as a client, have when you come to see me.
Being on the table is an exciting place to be as I wasn’t too sure what was going to happen. Would there be any old injuries that would need some work, car accidents, cycle accidents, or anything else? Or would any emotional traumas arise, divorce or bereavement for example. I was a little reticent at first as some of the traumas that have accumulated can be very personal but there were several things that quickly became apparent. I was in a comfortable and very safe environment and everything that did arise did so because I allowed it and not because the three therapists ‘prized’ it from me. It is not a counselling session.
What did I get from it? A much better understanding of how CranioSacral Therapy works with the body and the mind and how it allows the space to try to let each of them understand the other. Better communication has to be a good thing.
Why the title? Hurds Hill in Somerset is run by a wonderful team and David is a wonderful cook.
