Biodynamic Craniosacral as a Spiritual Practice


“According to most of the great Eastern spiritual traditions, our inner awareness/energy, or consciousness, is actually a limited, contracted form of the great Awareness/energy that underlies, creates, and sustains all things.  The Upanishads calls it Brahman, the Vastness.  The sages of Kashmir Shaivism called it Chiti (Universal Consciousness), Paramatma (supreme self).  The great Shaivite philosopher Abhinaragupta called it Hridaya, the Heart.  Physicists today call it the Quantum Field.  In Buddhism it is called the Dharmakaya, the “body” of Truth.  And, of course, we also call it God.” Sally Kempton

Dr. Sutherland would have said that the Breath of Life conveys this Universal Truth (sometimes called the Original Blueprint or matrix) to every cell and tissue via the body’s fluid system.  Dr. Sutherland and all that follow in his lineage recognize that the Cranial Concept is, at its root, a spiritual practice.  How does spirit incarnate into the body?  How does healing happen?  Questions like these arise for practitioners of craniosacral therapy.  

My teacher, Michael Shea, describes the treatment session as a prayer.  The practitioner makes deep connections within her own body and creates the space for the client to do the same.  We form an appropriate relationship with pain and suffering and cultivate compassion (for ourselves and others).  We hold reverence for the Breath of Life, and this reverence becomes a spiritual fulcrum.
