Craniosacral Resonance is a biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy.
It is based on the experience and understanding that even in difficult, physical or emotional conditions health is always present. In this perspective health is not seen as the absence of disease but as an expression of a universal creative and organizing principle called the breath of life with its own intelligence and wisdom. At conception, the forces of the breath of life infuse the embryo with vitality, generating form. The same forces of health organize, maintain and repair all living organisms throughout their lifetime. So health is never lost. Patterns of dysfunctions are just the best possible balance between the eccentric forces of unresolved conditions and the forces of health.
The intention of Craniosacral Resonance is to listen to this inner intelligence and support the forces of health within the human body through a gentle, attuned and specific positioning of the hands. The therapeutic approach is then not about doing something from the outside based upon the practitioner’s evaluation or action but about listening and supporting the action of the breath of life in its different expressions, which enable the body to access its own repairing and regenerative resources. The restoration of a more integrated and balanced state arises then from within according to priorities determined by the inherent intelligence contained within the forces of the breath of life.
Craniosacral Resonance is also based on the experience that in a deep state of relaxation and trust, the human body can more readily access its own state of balance, inner peace and silence, which have a profound clearing and regenerative effect.
Craniosacral Resonance is grounded in a solid knowledge of anatomy, physiology, embryology and modern neuro-biological and developmental findings.
As Craniosacral Resonance is a very respectful and non-evasive modality, it is well suited for babies, children and the elderly.
Craniosacral Resonance Training
In the course of the educational program, participants gain a deeper understanding of the nature of health. They learn to sense and appreciate the different expressions of the breath of life. Participants also develop and enhance their ability to perceive through their hands and heart the different levels of activities within the human body all anchored in a profound inner stillness.
Participants learn that the practitioner´s quality of presence is the key to deeper clearing processes and their regenerative ability. Therefore refining the skills required to form neutral, spacious, thoughtful and empathic therapeutic relationships forms the backbone of the program.
Who may benefit from the training?
- Those who have previously been involved with other forms of craniosacral therapy and would like to expand their knowledge
- Those who would like to learn new methods to support themselves and others
- Those who already work with other people in various settings (masseurs, psychotherapists, doctors, social workers, physiotherapists, psychiatrists, etc.)
- Those interested in self-exploration who wish to dive deeper into the exploration of the connection between body, mind and spirit
- Those who wish to discover deeper ways of connecting with the loved ones (partners, children, friends, etc.)
- Those who simply wish to experience a state of deep relaxation, peace and tranquillity
I have been engaged in the research of myself for many years. In the education of Craniosacral resonance I saw an additional opportunity in the quest for my essence and I gladly took it. Additionally, I was inspired by the desire that I may, with this experience and the knowledge I have acquired, be a part of someone else’s story, someone who has also decided to explore himself/herself. With each therapy I am closer to the home of my soul. By shutting off the barriers and blockades, I have opened up new dimensions of research. The feeling that I am completely fused with everything, that I am one, that there are no boundaries, is really something extraordinary. I am experiencing Craniosacral resonance as a dance of energies which invite you to a new podium over and over again. I am fascinated by the fact that all this is then reflected here and now on the physical level. My quality of life is undoubtedly increasing. I am grateful to the teachers Chintan and Karima for this exceptional experience and I happily recommend it.
I hadn’t met Valentina and Chintan prior to the Craniosacral resonance training. I’d had second thoughts about if it was the right decision to spend my time and money on this training. But the moment we actually started I felt that it was the right thing to do, that it was going to give meaning to my life. I could feel passion, warmth, kindness, safety and support all through my training, but above all I was given a sense that my teachers actually lived what they taught. The manner of presenting the content and practical work during the training was outstanding, translations were harmonized, the instructions clear, the working methods were well chosen, examples were given and there were various exercises we were able to learn a lot from. The training has brought about a lot of positive changes in my life: a different awareness of myself and my body, self-help by practising CRS on myself every night before bed, more peaceful nights, less energy loss during the day, more calmness, new methods for balancing the energy and grounding which we were taught during our lessons, etc. Whenever I perform CRS on another person, the sensation is amazingly positive, because you have the ability to help another person and at the same time you are aware that you are helping yourself; in CRS the processes of self-healing run in both fields: the client’s and the therapist’s. I am genuinely grateful that I decided to take up this training, whereby I have learnt the techniques of how to help myself and others and have also come to realize that this is a vital part of my mission in this life. Thank you both for all the experience, courage and a safe place which have enabled my personal shifts and the path to inner changes, a different perception and comprehension of the world.
I decided to take up the training of Craniosacral Resonance after an opening seminar where I first encountered this therapy. During the seminar we learnt the basic principles and received some practical experiences, but I was mostly impressed by the depth with which this method gently penetrates into the whole person. During the training I gradually came to understand how the creative forces of healing work in the body and how to support them so that they can fully develop. The teacher Veet Chintan has the ability to present the complex theory of Craniosacral Resonance clearly and his interpretation is always followed by experiential exercises that allow you to truly internalize that knowledge. To me, the most valuable experience is perhaps that I not only felt the emergence of life forces from inside my own body, but also learnt how to support another person in this process. I have very fond memories of our moments together, especially of the therapies that we performed on each other, always in a safe environment of the entire group. Having encountered Craniosacral resonance has been a profound and transformative experience for me, and one which is still ongoing. It is the reason that I now know there is a safe environment that supports life within me, regardless of any other circumstances.
You cannot decide to become a Craniosacral Therapist, this profession calls you. After eleven years of working with children, I started going to one friend for yoga classes because I was completely down, exhausted and drained. I was suffering from depression, but I wouldn’t admit it, although I knew I had to do something for myself. At the same time, I also started going to my future teacher of Craniosacral Resonance, Chintan Veet, a truly remarkable man. After the first visit I already felt a huge change in me on a gentle, subtle level, as if I had obtained the energy from inside, and I felt it for another two or three days. So, I went to training and already the first night everything was different. My children started coming to me on their own when I returned home. They also perceived a change; a source of beneficial energy had opened up in me. Previously, I had been rather severe, not mild enough, but then with just one touch, a special grip, I was able to remove the tension in my daughter’s shoulders or reassure my son when he was crying.
The training is organized around two fundamental teaching approaches:
- answers to questions that may arise during the programme,
- presentations (demonstrations),
- practice of interpersonal therapy with the help of the teacher,
- guided movement and meditation for a better connection with our own bodies and the strengthening of perception,
- exercises that promote our awareness of our own bodies, emotional perceptions and connections with others,
- sharing of experience in small groups.
180 hours altogether in the group room.
The programme is taught in English and simultaneously translated into Slovene.
