This webinar is about a biodynamic clinical session being a Rite of Passage. It is a three-step process of perception and prayer. Integrating factors from medical and cultural anthropology into a contemporary biodynamic practice includes the following:

1. The Neutral: When the wind and waves of stress physiology in the client begin to settle by attunement to the therapist’s state of abiding in the calmness and serenity of not knowing how to help, a neutral is perceived. This is a slowing down in the relational field and a stillpoint capable of expanding to the horizon. This is the wind of space opening the door to transformation determined by the intelligence of the elements.

2. Ignition is about the wind of fire. The fire element needs to be contained and redirected in between the core of the body: the pleural, pericardial and peritoneal cavities, and the sleeve of the body consisting of the muscular skeletal system and skin.

3. The Health: The last stage is the wind of space deeply manifesting it’s grace and sacred sound located in the inner heart and the entire rhythmic pulsation of the vascular system. This is the Health, a mind balanced by the wind of space in the heart and lower dantian. This is called potency in osteopathy. All movement is motivated by the wind as Primary Respiration. It is centered by the element of space, a self-knowing, non-thought awareness called the dynamic stillness.

 A Message to Our Community: Professional Enrichment Program Tuition for 2021

In 2020, due to the world pandemic, we were pleased to introduce Professional Enrichment Series webinars as support and education at no charge for all of our members and colleagues worldwide. We are extremely grateful to the presenters who donated their time, and to those participants who contributed to the administrative costs of this program. To continue offering this program in 2021, we find we must charge a small fee for some webinars to cover our additional expenses.
