Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access Resources

At the heart of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is the relational field between the practitioner and client. Trust and presence must be built to receive all that emerges in a BCST session or classroom. This requires respectful awareness and understanding of the stress and trauma held in the bodies of people with diverse racial, cultural, and identity backgrounds, whose lived experiences may be vastly different from your own.

Dealing with diversity and inclusion issues can be challenging and deeply layered. As BCST practitioners and teachers, it is crucial for us to educate ourselves and work on our own unconscious biases, with openness, curiosity, and compassion.

Here are some resources to support your ongoing education and self-development.
