by Charles Ridley
Random House/North Atlantic Books
“It is a book about consciousness from beginning to end... An inspiring and helpful book for beginner and advanced practitioners alike.”
author of The Heart of Listening
For books, ebooks, and audio:
Dynamic Stillness emanates Pure Breath of Love, a matrix of Wholeness as Life, Form, and Love, by which Stillness Touch becomes a Post-Biodynamic Practice. read more
Practitioner and client enjoy an inner body-felt connection to Wholeness. The practitioner is certain that the benefits have nothing to do with them, and the client enjoys being intimately touched by Pure Breath of Love.
Stillness Touch practitioners do not orient to the nervous system, nor use a medical disposition: we repose in the heart field, in non-doing, absent objectification, efference, and visualization amid 'don't know.'
A practitioner does not objectify a client or treat them. We repose within to sense the motion of wholeness directed by primary respiration and we wait and 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.”

“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.
