In 1973, a single cranial session infinitely expanded my consciousness for 30 days, which ignited my life-long cranial study that now spans 50 years.
My teacher, osteopath Dr. De Jarnette, was a student of Dr. Sutherland, the father of all cranial work.
My cranial studies were a spiritual journey to dive deep into a touch derived from the ancient spiritual art of laying on of hands, which has been practiced as a sacrament for thousands of years in all spiritual traditions. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathy, was renowned for his laying on of hands skills.
On the 1920's, after modern medicine began to take over the healing arts, it separated sacredness of touch as a mystery rite. Medicine did this by reducing touch into a mechanical treatment system to the body that is a machine that is controlled by the nervous system.
Any holistic method that focuses on the nervous system to heal the body is medical, which desecrates the sacred mystery of love that creates and heals the body.
How The Biodynamic Cranial Approach is Medical
Original osteopathic Biodynamic Cranial was founded by Sutherland as a non-medical modality that harnesses the power of the potency to heal by accessing the ascending tidal expressions of consciousness that lead to the realization of I AM, which is the Self.
However, in the non-osteopathic, Biodynamic Cranial Approach trainings, there are many major pitfalls. 1) The forcing medical ethics onto the biodynamic field of mutuality. 2) The clinging by enquiry into the biodynamic tides, which are an ascending current expression of consciousness. 3) Getting stuck in the ascending tidal domains of consciousness. 4) We cannot realize our second birth. Why?
Because in ascent, the ego engages strategic hypermasculine forms of recoil that keep our consciousness away from the potency to avoid an utter surrender to Dynamic Stillness.
The above strategies are known as spiritual bypass, which the ego uses to prevent the realization of I AM - the consciousness of Dynamic Stillness. In ascent, we also avoid descending into the body, which blocks the implosion of our consciousness into the cells.
It is not until after I AM implodes into the cells that our second birth occurs.
What is the second birth? It is the enfleshment of the Sacred Pulse of Pure Breath of Love that is stronger than death.
After enfleshment, the heart's SA Node emanates Pure Breath of Love
Pure Breath of Love's pulse reveals that the body is a sacred vessel of love.
If we touch from this 'seat' of enfleshment, it evokes the divine feminine power,
which, by entrainment, also emerges inside a recipient.
The Divine Feminine, or the Holy Grail, re-spiritualizes matter and restores its original magma-like quality as the super-substance of love that unifies all things.
The non-osteopath biodynamic cranial approach (BCA) keeps its practitioners stuck in the tides to bypass the utter surrender of consciousness to Dynamic Stillness, which prevents the second birth, and do not realize an enfleshed union of body, consciousness, and love.
In 1977, I founded a Cranial Study Group while in college. Then in 1981, in Manhattan I began training people from all walks of life. I taught self-care classes, spoke at the Whole Life Expos nationwide, and I wrote a regular "Self-Care Column" for the Whole Life Times Magazine. I founded the Whole Life Healing Center with an MD homeopath, one of the first integrative centers in the USA.
I met psychotherapist and author Robert Johnson who was trained by Karl Jung. Beginning in 1986, for 12 years, he mentored me one-to-one in Jungian's depth psychology.
In the 1990's, I developed a system of anointing with Hauschka oils that harmonize the fourfold organ system based on Rhythmic Massage developed by Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman. I was invited to present my original work in Seattle at the Anthroposophic Medical Conference (PAAM) in 1995. After 12 years, this impulse evolved into Sacred Body Rites.
In 1995, I began teaching my meditative principles and touch practices at the Pacific School of Homeopathy. I was also spontaneously experiencing the tides as states of consciousness, which subsequently inspired my writing and teaching.
Since 1977, I have certified dozens of teachers, trained thousands of practitioners and lay people worldwide through my two schools Dynamic Stillness and Sacred Body Rites.
Now I teach Stillness Touch Master Classes for professional practitioners, offer lay courses, Private Intensives, write, and publish.
I live in Puerto Vallarta with my spouse Julia Aquino, who translates and teaches Spanish Stillness Touch courses in Mexico, Latin America, and Spain.
This year celebrates my life's work that spans 50 years from 1973 to 2023.
I offered the Immersion in Prague and Puerto Vallarta in 2022 and I will offer my Immersion in Basel August 10-13, 2023
After 50 years, I am approaching my sunset with teaching worldwide.
The bodily toll of international travel is nearly intolerable and I long to return to my original vocation of gardening.
Perhaps you will join me in 2024
