Dynamic Stillness is a potent center that emanates the Breath of Life, which ignites and generates the matrix of Life, Health, Form, and Love. We connect with these forces within us and by entrainment offer them to others through non-doing touch.
Practitioner and client realize an inner body-felt connection to health-as-Wholeness. The practitioner is certain that the healing has nothing to do with them, and the client feels intimately touched by the Breath of Life.
Stillness Touch practitioner's do not use a medical disposition: you repose in the heart field, in non-doing, absent objectification, efference, and amid 'don't know.'
A practitioner who does not objectify a client to treat them reposes within to sense the motion of health directed by primary respiration and you wait to let it guide the session. Be Still and Know I AM
“Blending didactic instruction with experiential practice and group processing, Charles creates an environment conducive to learning at the deepest levels of comprehension.”
~ Elizabeth Pimentel, ND
“Studying with Charles as he teaches biodynamic cranial work has taken my work to a new level. Charles has challenged me to extend my skills and relax my ‘I’ll fix it’ attitude that I have carried for so long.”
~ Steve Schumacher
“Charles Ridley is one of the most authentic practitioners I have ever met in 45 years of working in this field. He is also an explorer and a courageous one.”
~ Hugh Milne, author of Heart of Listening
“Thank you for the lifetime developing this work. Even more for the generosity of sharing it so freely. Your classes have no padding, no jargon, no hype, and just delivered again and again in deceptively simple words and actions.”
~ Selma Lewis, Ph.D.
