Craniosacral Therapy Level Four Retreat

The Final Integration Course in Craniosacral Training

This 4-day retreat-style training is an integration and expansion of the previous three levels of Craniosacral Balancing.  In this course, we continue to broaden our perceptual field and explore the subtle biodynamics of movement as expressed through all the tissues, fluids and biosphere of a person.

Now, having witnessed and experienced the Cranial Rhythmic Impulse and Mid-Tide rhythms in the previous levels of training, we move to working with the Long-Tide, an expression of what Dr. William Sutherland, DO called “The Breath of Life.”  This is the source of our Original Blueprint of Health. 

Throughout this course, we integrate our physical, hands-on practice with practical knowledge learned from biodynamic embryology.  In-depth exploration of the fourth phase of water, heart resonance and midlines will provide the anchor for our work.  At the end of Level 4 training, students are invited to engage in a certification process in this work (see instructor for details).

Due to the nature of this training, it is required for students to remain on-campus for the duration of the retreat.  The cost of this training includes 30 hours of instruction with involved hands-on practice, 10 family-style meals and lodging.  CEUs will be provided.

Both single and double-occupancy rooms are available; however, the single-occupancy rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Cost of Tuition, Meals and Lodging for Single-Occupancy Room: $1380 **

Cost of Tuition, Meals and Lodging for Double-Occupancy Room: $1280

Location: Loyola University Retreat & Ecology Center, 2710 S. Country Club Rd., Woodstock, IL  60098
