Advanced Course

For students who have completed the Intermediate Course and who wish to augment their professional Pre and Perinatal skills for their own private practices, and for trainees who are in the Teacher Training program.

Class 1

I believe that human beings are more sensitive and perceptive than most medical devices. As practitioners we all have our own personal relationships with energy, heat and cold, fluid and wave movements in the body, morphogenic fields, perception, and intuition. Developing our palpation skills enhances our ability to more deeply understand where and how pre and perinatal shock is held in the body. Once we have been trained in birth conjunct points and pathways and the prenatal sites, a relationship with our palpation skills begs to be developed.

This class is designed to help you understand your own natural palpation style. Many students are already palpating consciously or semi-consciously, responding to and tracking the energy and somatic expressions of their client. Some practitioners are shy or even afraid that they won't be able to palpate, but in my experience so far, with many classes, everyone can learn to do it. The curriculum invites students to experiment with palpation styles and develop skills and range as a palpator. We will study how to calibrate to our patient (the palpatee is actually the one who trains us how to palpate). We will also learn how to palpate energetically, the difference between diagnostic and activating palpation, and how to help release shock through palpation. We will learn to understand the difference between birth and prenatal broadcasts. In the first lesson of the course we work in pairs to learn calibration and diagnostic palpation, then we will construct body maps with our dyad partner. Next, after switching partners, we examine the 3-D threshold between diagnostic and activating palpation in the morning, and then in the afternoon we take our dyad partner into regression through activating palpation. Switching partners again, we work in dyads to learn to palpate the body and search for unresolved shock, including vectors, shock cysts, shock fractures, and differentiation between the shock body and the non-shock body. Again, in the afternoon, with a new partner, we take turns doing regressions in connection to the shock maps we have discovered. The final regression day we work with new dyad partners, assess each other through palpation, and do regressions. One of the great things about this course is that we not only get a lot of practical practice to become expert palpators, but we get to do a lot of regressions and work on ourselves. Throughout the week we take time in the circle to share our experiences and to ask questions and receive answers.
