Mission Statement: The Biodynamics of Osteopathy

Osteopathy in the cranial field has been the primary interest in my life since 1966. The creation of the Biodynamics Program came from a deep love and respect for the Soul of Osteopathy. Through the help and kindness of exceptional teachers and years of personal interest, the beauty of Primary Respiration has become a moment to moment reality in my life. As a therapeutic tool Primary Respiration is uniquely complete in its Wholeness. It spans every dimension of the Healing Arts.

Integrity demands that we speak undiluted truth. We are always perfect beginners, inspired, awed, apprehensive and self-searching.

The foundation of the program is set upon the therapeutic powers of the Dynamic Stillness, the Breath of Life, the tidal potency, fluids and other Natural Laws at work supporting and generating life. No technique will be taught other than full cooperation with the composite of the Living Mechanism and its intention within the moment. It is not about bones, or levers, or palpation. It is not about balanced membranous or ligamentous articular tension; these approaches are a different composite. It is about the Tide at work as the primary source of diagnosis and treatment with no application of force to Osteopathic lesions or psycho-emotional systems. The environment of the program is in the quiet of the Natural world with small groups of participants. Time for rest, reflection and exercise is woven into the program.

Osteopathy has shamefully hidden its Greatest Mystery and resources. I believe that to acknowledge a higher wisdom at work and to sense rather than palpate is at the Soul of Osteopathy. A soul that will not compromise the beauty and consciousness that lies beyond our intellect. Integrity demands that we speak undiluted truth. We are always perfect beginners, inspired, awed, apprehensive and self-searching.

Within the Dynamic Stillness we are healed without process or time. From the Breath of Life a new living matrix is created in each moment. The Tide brings us the power of Life and “feeds” us. The fluids respond, lawfully balancing the power of life and skillfully “driving” the continuum towards perfect proportion.

These courses provide an awareness of and communication with the natural and divine aspects of Primary Respiration. These courses are for postgraduate, fully licensed physicians with a curriculum designed for those with prior training in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field. Undergraduate courses are available through the BioBasics program.

It has and is a privilege to teach and learn Osteopathy with my fellow Osteopaths. May our efforts be of Service.
