Learn with Ged Sumner and Steve Haines
The course will focus on the vitality of the body, with a commitment to learning that is both informative and enjoyable. Particular attention will be paid to relating structure and function to the living body.
Learn Living Anatomy
The material presented is compatible with the craniosacral concept as taught by Body Intelligence. This theory describes how body tissues are formed and organised and the way this determines bodily function.
Powerful forces are involved in cell division and organisation from the moment of conception onwards.
How the body forms is of vital importance; clinical experience shows that if we can relate to the body with this understanding then it is possible to contact deep vitality and intelligence. At the heart of our unfolding is an intelligent life force.
What is Health?
Throughout the course there will be discussion of how the body structures express health. Anatomical terminology will be taught. There will be an emphasis on practical elements, including surface anatomy, mobility testing and simple touch and palpation skills.
There will also be guidance around experiencing your own anatomy and physiology through guided exercises and self-palpation. The experiential work is designed to give you a sensory perception of you own body. Some pathological conditions will be covered.
