The Craniosacral Institute Australia has offered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy trainings since 1995, teaching cranial osteopathy influenced craniosacral and trauma release work in a professional training over six modules.
Our Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy courses are designed for the beginner as well as the advanced student. In a typical class you may find massage therapists, naturopaths, acupuncturists, Bowen therapists, kinesiologists, psychotherapists, GPs and other practitioners, and some with no previous background in bodywork.
Course work is divided between significant hands-on practice, lecture, discussion and processes. Comprehensive notes are provided at each course level. At the end of each course you will receive a certificate of completion.
Although there is an emphasis on completing the program as a whole, each workshop stands on it's own; one, or all six may be taken.

The importance of training to which you give your full concentration guided by a skilled expert, coach, or mentor cannot be overemphasized. Daniel Goleman in his book Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence speaks of a "feedback loop" saying: "Ideally that feedback comes from someone with an expert eye; every world-class sports champion has a coach. If you practice without such feedback, you don’t get to the top ranks. The feedback matters and the concentration does, too — not just the hours. Read more here.
