Dynamic Morphology

Morphology is the study of shapes along with the context and the processes in shaping. Dynamic morphology is the study of how shape function forms.It defines the movement and behavior of these shapes under the influence of forces, in this case,that of the human embryo. At each stage of its enfoldment, the embryo pre-exercises a growth and developmental blueprint for each and every aspect of the physical-body, mind-body, and spiritual body of the in-coming being. Contact with this affords the practitioner a significant scope and depth of analysis and thus a clearer and more succinct outcome. Dynamic morphology is best understood in light anthroposophic medicine through the works of Rudolf Steiner, Goethe, L.F.C Meese, Blechschmidt, Jaap van der Wal, and others. A major contribution of this modality is the uncovering of the power of the embryonic heart

Biodynamic Cranial Therapy

This treatment modality was introduced more than a century ago by osteopaths A.T. Still and William Garner Sutherland. Further exploration and discernment by other osteopaths have given us greater depths into biodynamic cranial therapy and a clearer understanding of its scope.

The words cranial and sacral do not set the boundary for craniosacral therapy, and less than that, they do not encompass or denote the scope of biodynamic engagement with the breath of life or Primary Respiration. These words describe a cyclical longitudinal flow of potency along the vertebral column. This is only one of many dynamic expressions palpable during a treatment application of biodynamic cranial therapy. It is said that consciousness infuses the conceptus and later through cerebrospinal fluid carries on the infusion of this potency maintaining a cascading effect over all other fluid systems and the entire organism.

Accepting that the human system is organized and maintained by this subtle, unerring and powerful potency may be challenging to some. However, sensing how this potency conducts itself and what it does leaves no room for doubt. It is Nature. Healing takes place when nature and nurture are combined. Each and every aspect of the human being responds to this life force, which organizes atoms, molecules, cells, tissues and organs and also creates what we call systems through its integrative intelligence. This potency establishes its own contact with related energy fields within and without the body to maintain a healthy living state. It remains fully whole throughout the lifespan as health; It is never lost or diminished. All treatment is aimed at re-establishing the relationship with the inherent order in this and thereby relieving and/or diminishing chaos in body, mind, spirit. In other words, this potency bestows resonance or cellular sanity.

In a treatment session, the practitioner skillfully, with presence and deep awareness, palpates the subtle rhythms, tides and impulses generated. These rhythms vary in amplitude and expression depending on living conditions and other environmental factors, pathology, nutritional states, pregnancy, shock and trauma, mental states, and an overall sense of self. As amazing as it may sound, the contact initiates a self directed movement toward change in area of the fulcrum of the restriction or inertia. No manipulation by the practitioner is employed or necessary. The treatment is client led and the client's body sets the pace.

Reorganization occurs at a deep unconscious level involving the chakra/neuroendocrine system, the autonomic nervous system primarily and other systems by affective/effective interaction. A sense of deep relaxation can be a lovely side effect for the client. Symptomatic relief can be prompt, delayed, or incremental with a series of treatments. In this therapy when one meets a client, one sees the whole, a very unique and rare event in our modern world according Jim Jealous, DO. This is an event contained only in the individual present moment.

Because of the nature of biodynamic cranial therapy, babies respond deeper and quicker than most adults in some cases. Many infant problems, such as torticolis, feeding difficulties, birthing residue, intrauterine experiences, colic, restlessness and problematic sleeping conditions strain the balance and comfort in baby and caregiver. Treatment relives the stress pattern and more than that, releases the baby from potential chronic conditions that could emerge later in life. This treatment has been shown to have significant impact on some of the developmental disorders prevalent in our young children and adolescents.

Caution and sensitive exclusion of recent head traumas from this treatment essentially quantify the areas where this treatment is not engaged.


Ayurveda is a system that is more than five thousand years old. It was imparted to us through vedic scripture and the ancient Himalayan culture in India. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means the science of life. It is called the mother of all healing. Ayurveda identifies three basic types of energy or functional principles that are present in everyone and everything. These principles, or doshas, as they are commonly known, can be related to the basic biology, psychology, and spirituality of the human being. Vata is the principle of movement; pitta is the principle of metabolism and kapha the principle of lubrication or containment. Vata is the combination of water and air, pitta the combination of fire and water and kapha the combination of earth and water.

In this field of elemental awareness one can be present, at some level, with the primordial process of conception. Ayurveda calls this the prakruti. It is determined by the doshik predominance and gradient in the metabolic field at the time of conception. The vikruti is determined by the doshic predominance and gradient of the moment. This can be palpated through the radical pulse and verbal assessment. By extension, ayurveda assesses body-mind-spirit through the subdoshas, dhatus and subtypes as satva, rajas, tamas and ojas, tejas, prana.

This kind of analysis provides clear guidance for lifestyle counseling, dietary care and other forms of intervention. Ayurveda with its six stage process of samrapti can detect imbalances and disease states long before they become evident. Ayurveda recognizes that each one is unique, each responds differently to the many aspects of life, each possesses different strengths and weaknesses and so, through its vast wealth of information it can facilitate an address on an individual basis.

Core Process psychotherapy

This model of care was pioneered through the Karuna Institute, England. It is a contemplative buddhist approach to sensing and processing our life experiences through a depth of awareness. It is based on the understanding that within the conscious mind there is deep and abiding resource that can facilitate our connection with wisdom and compassion for ourselves and with those with whom we form relationships. Our human conditions need not be held continuously as suffering but rather be transformed through the qualities of loving kindness, equanimity, sympathetic joy and compassion. Assessing these insights hold the possibility for each client to express spontaneously from the core of his or her existence. It is empowering to the client to realize that this is not imparted by the therapist, but facilitated by the therapeutic engagement. The shaping process of the past gives way to healing. The sense of separation gives way to integration of mind, body and spirit and ultimately greater ease at the heart of our human conditions.

The Science of Mind

The lessons of this teaching are dedicated to that truth which frees man from himself and sets him the pathway of a new experience. It enables him to see through the mist to the eternal and changeless reality. It was founded by Dr. Ernest Holmes with the distinct intention to show whosoever will know the power of trained thought and how mind renewal through the interruption of serial thinking can redirect the course of living.

It gives precise clear directions for prayer as treatment into that vast inner space called consciousness. The science of mind teaches that the human being is endowed with self choice and free will: He/she can think. The human body does not exist without this human thinker. This thinker knows and knows that he/she knows, unlike other species. It is then wise to be cognizant of the fact that we live in a sea of intelligence that accepts the impress of our thoughts and creates our life experience out of them. It supports the truth that the human being is phenomenon.
