In this course series, we will explore the inter-relatedness of the central, autonomic, and enteric nervous systems. No techniques will be taught but instead we will learn to "cooperate and communicate with the laws not framed by human hands." We will treat the nervous system as it relates to the Whole. Our awareness will be on the Natural aspects Primary Respiration. We will observe that the nervous system heals within the Dynamic Stillness without process or time and watch it reborn in each moment while the Tide brings us the Life Force that feeds us.

Course content will include:

  • Perception of Anatomy from the biodynamic model
