Pre- and Perinatal Influences in Biodynamics, with Cherionna Menzam-Sills
Tuesday, August 11, 2020  ~  8:00 am Pacific, 11:00 am Eastern, 4:00 pm UK time

This webinar will explore different ways early pre- and perinatal history may arise in Craniosacral Biodynamics, both for the client and the practitioner. Cherionna will address ways to meet this material when it arises within the therapist, often as counter-transference, and/or within the client. We will also take some time to settle together and practice a short guided meditation, developing our ability to hold our own inner little one with compassion and kindness. The program will last 60-90 minutes, including time for questions.
