An introductory guide to Cherionna Menzam-Sills's unique approach to craniosacral biodynamics therapy, a whole-body healing therapy focused on working with the forces underlying health and healing

Cherionna Menzam-Sills draws on her extensive background in pre- and perinatal psychology, embryology, bodywork, Continuum Movement, and other somatic therapies--as well as years of working with her husband, biodynamics pioneer Franklyn Sills--to present this accessible introduction to the meditative healing practice of craniosacral biodynamic therapy (CSBT). This book offers a personal journey of embodied enquiry into each element of biodynamic session work, using meditative explorations, personal descriptions, and illustrations to convey the essence of biodynamics. It emphasizes breathing and body awareness exercises that help the practitioner become more attuned to her own body so that she can create an effective relational field with her client. An essential guide for new practitioners, students, and clients--as well as a valuable reference for experienced practitioners--this book illuminates the path toward the intelligent formative forces of the mysterious presence called "the breath of life" and its transformative power for health and wholeness.
