Two-Year Professional Training

Craniosacral Resonance

About the training

Craniosacral Resonance listens to subtle inherent rhythms within the human body as expressions of health.

The training is grounded in a solid knowledge of anatomy, physiology, embryology and modern neuro-biological and developmental findings as well as a deeper understanding of the nature of health.

Participants develop and refine their ability to perceive through their hands and heart the different levels of functions within the human body all anchored in a profound inner stillness.

Participants also learn to refine their skills to form neutral, grounded, spacious, thoughtful and empathic therapeutic relationships as the key to deeper levels of processing.

Who Is the training for?

The training is open for anyone who is interested in craniosacral resonance and the biodynamic approach to address health and healing.

Who may benefit from the training?

  • Those who have previously been involved with other forms of craniosacral therapy and would like to expand their knowledge and experience
  • Those who would like to learn new methods to support themselves and others
  • Those who already work with other people in various settings (masseurs, psychotherapists, doctors, social workers, physiotherapists, psychiatrists, etc.)
  • Those interested in self-exploration who wish to dive deeper into the exploration of the connection between body, mind and spirit
  • Those who wish to discover deeper ways of connecting with loved ones (partners, children, friends, etc.)
  • Those who simply wish to experience a state of deep relaxation, peace and serenity

We have educated more than 400 craniosacral therapists both in Slovenia and abroad.

The training is organized around two fundamental teaching approaches.

1. Teaching and practice

Teaching is dedicated to gaining a deeper knowledge of all fields connected to the understanding of craniosacral resonance and to have a direct experience of the teaching through hands-on practice.

It includes:

  • Lectures which include a practical introduction to this approach as well as teaching in anatomy, physiology and embryology
  • presentations including hands-on demonstrations
  • hands-on practice
  • answers to questions that may arise during the program
  • practice of interpersonal therapy with the help of the teacher,
  • guided movement and meditation for a deepening awareness of our own bodies as well as of the perception of others
  • Reciprocal practical exercises of therapies with the teacher’s support
  • Exploration and sharing of personal experience in small groups.

The training includes 180 hours in the group room. It is conducted in English with an interpreter.

2. Exercises and independent study between modules

In craniosacral resonance, it is fundamental to have a direct experience of the inherent health within and its different expressions. Self-education and hands-on practice are very important.

Every student is required to complete the following between modules:

  • Give 50 documented sessions free of charge
  • Give and receive 15 tsessions from the other students which can be part of the 50 documented sessions mentioned above.
  • Give four tutorial sessions to the trainers who then provide feedback
  • Receive 10 sessions from the trainers.
  • Assigned home work

Exercises include 100 hours outside the group room.

About Craniosacral Resonance

Craniosacral resonance is based on the “breath of life” concept. The breath of life is a universal creative principle which sustains and connects all life functions within all living organisms, including humans.

An experienced craniosacral practitioner feels the expression of the breath of life as slow, rhythmic motion, similar to the tide. With a gentle, tuned and specific positioning of the hands, the practitioner listens to and supports the forces of the breath of life in their different expressions, thus enabling the body to access its own self-healing and regenerative resources.

The origins of craniosacral resonance are the realizations and experience of Dr. William Garner Sutherland, an American osteopath. 

What is this modality based on?

Craniosacral resonance is based on the experience and understanding of Dr. William Garner Sutherland, an American osteopath. In the last decades, Rollin E. Becker, James S. Jealous, Franklyn Sills and others contributed to a deepening of Sutherland’s understanding, which eventually lead to the development of the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy. In their works, these osteopaths recognize the holistic nature of the human body and the deeper expressions of health.

Craniosacral resonance is a biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy that was developed by Chintan Veet as an expression of his life journey and meditation experience.

What is this modality intention?

The intention of Craniosacral Resonance is to facilitate a clearer expression of the forces of the breath of life, an expression of our inherent health. With a gentle, tuned and specific positioning of the hands, the practitioner listens to and supports these forces thus enabling the body to access its own healing resources.

During treatment, the client feels a deep sense of relaxation, serenity, tranquility and peace, which is vitalizing and regenerative.

In Center Hočevar, our biodynamic craniosacral practice is based on Craniosacral Resonance developed by Chintan Veet.

The Effects and Use of Craniosacral Resonance

Craniosacral resonance has a positive effect on the physical, emotional and mental levels.

It supports structural changes in the body. It leads to the relaxation of the body and mind and promotes well-being and vitality. It is effective in pain relief and different physical conditions as well as in both acute and chronic diseases. It offers a supportive frame when faced with emotional or psychological challenges, in moments of life crises, grief or loss and in times of transition or periods of self-discovery and growth.

Chintan Vacheron

Chintan Vacheron RCST®️ (BCTA/NA) has been involved with various forms of craniosacral therapy as practitioner and teacher for over 25 years.

It all started in1992 with his first training in bodywork. Very quickly he became an accomplished practitioner and teacher of Rebalancing®️, a form of deep tissue bodywork. This solid understanding of the human structure, and a continued interest and fascination with the mystery of the human form led him to craniosacral therapy in 1996. This new modality brought a different understanding and wider dimension to his work.

In 2002, a formal training in the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy eventually contributed to form the basic frame for his actual practice and teaching. It was named Craniosacral Resonance as a reflection of his life journey and meditation practice.

Chintan Vacheron is teaching in different parts of Europe and Taiwan, waiting to be able to resume his teaching in China whenever possible.
