The Witness Class

Witness: Craniosacral Rhythms, Inner Stillness

18 CEUs, $498, Pre-requisite: CADD or advanced CST class equivalent


In this three-day workshop--typically held every other year--we explore the power of THE MOST neutral stance as therapist/facilitator, that of Witness.This class is designed to open the therapist to the natural elements of life -- breath, water and awareness -- in order to cultivate a deeper appreciation for the craniosacral rhythms, our breath, and inner stillness.

  • Prior topics discussed and explored have included:
  • Water, the body and intention
  • Reflections of craniosacral rhythms with organs of the brain
  • CST and fulcrums
  • Grasping and fear
  • Ego awareness
  • Chi Kung and CST
  • Breath and CST
  • Techniques to invoke imagery and dialogue
  • Witness as a CST approach
  • Unique exercises: Being a Mirror; A Walk Back Home

"Participate in this class and discover the importance of being present, still, neutral and energetically engaged in order to encourage the body to heal itself--essentially and ultimately learning 'How to Be a Witness.'" -- Don Ash

Suggested reading: "Lessons From the Sessions, Reflections of Journeys in Craniosacral Therapy" by Don Ash, PT, CSTA-CP-I, Introduction by John Upledger

In this book Don Ash presents a collection of essays on clinical lessons learned from his patients as a definition of CST for the patient and as a clinical example for the therapist. Written in 2005 and still highly recommended by patients and therapists who have said "It's a great read!" It's not mandatory to take the class, just suggested.
