CST Somato-Emotional Elements 1


November 3-5, 2023 – Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada with Don Ash, PT, CSTA-CP-I
SE1: Listening to the Body

18 NCBTMB CEUs, $498, Pre-requisite: BE3 or equivalent training

This class offers an expanding paradigm to craniosacral study based on work evolving
from all of the founders of craniosacral therapy. Their notion is that the body has an
inner consciousness, an inner wisdom, that is one aspect of the body’s ability to heal

With our previous classes BE1, BE2 and BE3 and structural awareness gained, we now
can add the energetic, inner consciousness and somato-emotional dimensions of
disease, illness, healing and recovery.

Topics explored will include therapeutic presence, energetic phenomena related to the
body, how emotions are held in the body and how to evaluate their impact to the
neurological and physiological systems. Through special exercises the attending
student will cultivate a therapeutic presence and the ability to use that presence, as well
as all of the previously learned palpation and manual skills, to support and facilitate the
biological process of change and healing.
