In the context of craniosacral work, the word "Biodynamic" means we do not impose a solution on the body. Rather we honour the body's ability to heal itself.
“Biodynamics attempts to always appreciate the whole of things. The work is about a surrender to the priorities of the body. There is a trust that, given the right relationship and resources, the intelligence in the body will choose the best way to heal.”
"Our bodies are amazing. We have the ability to heal, change, and adapt to all that life can throw at us. The first stage in healing is to simply become more aware of your body. Learn to cultivate the skills of being present. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy offers a profound way of helping people to trust the intelligence in the body, to deepen into stillness, and to learn to appreciate how the body moves and flows in its continual striving for health."
When you’re too frazzled to think straight, gently place your fingertips on your forehead - on the bump halfway between your eyebrows and hair line. Keep your fingertips here, breathing deeply, until you feel pulsing under your fingertips. (This brings the blood back to your forebrain, allowing you think more clearly.)
Here's another version of the technique that includes additional points on your head. In this version, her pinky finger is placed on the bump halfway between her eyebrows and hairline.
This is a Donna Eden technique she calls “The Hook Up”. Place the middle finger of one hand between your eyebrows above your nose. Place the middle finger of the other hand in your navel. Gently press each finger into your skin, pulling upward for 15 - 20 seconds. (This connects your central and governing meridians and balances your energy front to back and top to bottom.)
