It is with great joy that the The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America and the American Polarity Therapy Association announce a shared retreat-style “Science and Spirituality” Conference. This event will be held at Mt. Madonna, in the mountains near Santa Cruz, on the central coast of California. The nearest airport is San Jose International. The Conference will begin after dinner on September 11th and go until Sunday afternoon the 14th.

Given that this collaboration and setting is in a retreat style, each speaker will be presenting to the entire community during their session. The conference classes will be lecture style, with sessions of 90 minutes each, followed by experiential trade sessions in the afternoon supervised by the daily speakers. Our exciting line-up includes:
Friday:
Morning movement with Mimi Oliver “Waking up the Tree of Life and the Breath of Life”
Roger Gilchrist “A Comprehensive View of the Human Energy System”
Mary Cheers “Mystical Marketing: Integrating Your Spiritual Values with Your Business Model”
Elizabeth Hammond “Becoming Conscious to Move Freely and Fluidly as the Light Beings We Are!”
Gary Strauss “Holding Space”
Saturday:

Sunday:

Christopher Muller “The Original Blueprint and the Embryology of Erich Blechschmidt”

In addition to the Conference, APTA will be hosting a Pre-Conference workshop with Ray Castellino on Thursday, September 11th, “The Origin of Impulse”. BCTA/NA will offer a Post-Conference workshop, Sunday eve the 14th through Tuesday noon the 16th, with Gary Peterson “Sourcefulness: The Power of the Neutral in Clinical Practice and Everyday Life”.

This conference promises to offer depth and a resource that can embrace and refresh us as we gather and revitalize this work which we all love.
