Dynamic Stillness School
For the Evolution of Consciousness
The Dynamic Stillness School offers only a biodynamic, non-medical, non-doing approach to touch for the evolution of consciousness as instructed by the founder of biodynamic cranial Dr. Sutherland.
Our offerings are open to practitioners and non-practitioners alike for Personal and Professional Development. However, if you wish to be recognized as a practitioner of Biodynamic Cranial Touch, you become certified by taking the Mentor Course.
Personal Development and Professional Certification Classes:
1) Stillness Touch is a two-day immersion in our practices open to anyone.

Our Biodynamic Evolutionary Training Enhances any Modality
Biodynamic Cranial Touch Mentoring is limited to a small group that meets for one year. The inner practices you learn to evolve your consciousness can be integrated into any healing modality.
Course participants have included medical physicians, osteopaths, integrative medical doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, psychotherapists, homeopaths, naturopaths, bodyworkers, water workers, spiritual teachers, specialists in posture and movement, Pilates, Continuum, somatic experience, and yoga, ... to name a few. We happily support all practitioners of any modality who wish to realize a living contact with Pure Breath of Love.
In his final years, founder of cranial work, Dr. Sutherland revealed his powerful insight: 'Trust the Tide.' At the Dynamic Stillness School, we realize this ‘Tide’ in an expanded spectral sense that includes the wisdom of the body as the classic tidal enfoldments of Breath of Life, as well as the Wisdom of the Whole as Pure Breath of Love that creates all that is.
We train you to inwardly recognize these spectral expressions as distinct yet overlapping, ever-evolving levels of consciousness. Touching another in non-doing, without objectification, efference, agenda, interference, motion testing the tissues, shifting into tides, engaging the ego of the client, or applying any outside force is so powerful that Dr. Sutherland characterized it as 'uncanny.'
Our courses are designed so you can cultivate a living, intimate, ever-deepening, body-felt connection with the spectral expressions of the Breath of Life, Consciousness, Love, and onward …
The Initiatory Course
In the Initiatory Course, you learn the disposition for practicing biodynamics for the evolution of consciousness. There are embodiment practices to access Stillness and Midline that connect you to the spectral range of primary respiration in your inner body.
You orient inwardly, cease all objectification, efferent activity, and intervention while touching another. You abide by your natural state (neutral) while letting 'what is' be as it is. This means you neither leave your body or collapse amid the depths of intensity evoked by direct contact with the immense potency of Dynamic Stillness. Embodied inner sensing, abiding in the Stillness of your self-existing heart radiance, while reposed in the Eros of the pelvic floor are primary objectives of the Initiatory Course.
We embody, expand, and evolve Dr. Sutherland's profound biodynamic insights through inner Stillness Meditations to access your invisible midline, enter your radiant heart field, and inhabit the inner body space of pelvic floor to sense. It is amid this disposition, while touching a client in tonal match through entrainment, that you and the client can experience powerful encounters with the spectral expressions of primary respiration as Pure Breath of Love. You remain in embodied sensual contact with the power that made the body, heals the body, and evolves your consciousness to a union of body with the Love that creates all that is.
The Initiatory Course is open to non-practitioners, all health care practitioners, psychotherapists, movement therapists, somatic practitioners, and bodyworkers. It is required for all craniosacral practitioners, biodynamic cranial osteopaths, and biodynamic craniosacral practitioners who wish to cultivate the disposition to practice the evolutionary biodynamics we teach before undertaking a committed year-long mentorship in Biodynamic Cranial Touch.
Note: the Initiatory Course is required if you have previous biodynamic cranial training because you need to learn touch for the evolution of consciousness from the disposition of non-intervention and non-efference to join the Biodynamic Cranial Touch Mentor Course described here: Level 1
