Heart of Stillness Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
In my work I attend to settling the nervous system, allowing the deep power of your life force to reorganize and balance your system, bringing healing and the overall sense of wellness.
I have over 3000 hours of training which has included certification in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Castellino Prenatal & Birth Therapy, and Lomi Somatic Education and Bodywork. I began studying the power of presence and the nature of healing in 1992. I first offered sessions in somatic work in 1995 while living at Esalen Institute where I also taught in the Movement Arts program. I have studied Aikido since 1992 under Sensei Richard Strozzi-Heckler and hold the rank of Sandan (3rd-degree black belt) at Two Rock Dojo. I live in Petaluma with my wife, Zuza. You can learn more about my background at my website.
I was first inspired by the presence of my teachers Robert K Hall and Richard Strozzi-Heckler, founders of the Lomi School in the early '70s. Through them I learned about the potential available for healing through somatic awareness and touch.
I don't know what or how, but something happened and I definitely feel better, more calm and clear, with some relief to my pain. I look forward to returning.
This work is kind of like "applied meditation". While I sit with my hands in different places on a client, I do a quiet internal practice that allows me to sense where contact is needed, and my client gets the benefit of my practice. There's something subtle and indescribable, always balancing and supportive, that takes place deep in the body through this contact.
