Dr. Michael J. Shea's series on Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is based on healthcare providers physically sensing love and accessing a deep sense of warmth and stillness in the heart. He begins this third volume by emphasizing the therapeutic application of touch therapy skills. As in the previous two books, he teaches these skills by explaining the importance of practitioners being able to perceive Primary Respiration, a slow rhythmic tidal movement in the fluids of the body. He goes on to discuss the distinctive influence of human embryology on any therapeutic modality. A number of other experts in the field contribute chapters that illuminate the spiritual and psychological dimensions of human embryonic development, especially the heart. Dr. Shea offers valuable new skills for anyone, from midwives to pediatricians, working therapeutically with infants. In addition, he summarizes current thinking on infant brain development, discusses the long-term consequences of attachment issues between the mother and infant, and explores the importance of understanding the similarities of the mother-infant and the therapistpatient relationships.

Rare Book

Review:

"Michael Shea has produced a fascinating insight into human embryology. He shows how the early movements and formations of the embryo not only relate to the creation of the body and integration of the systems, but also how they are the precursors for the development of the relational dynamics in the baby, infant, and adult. He proposes that practitioners can directly relate to these early forms through a unique development in touch that can bring about changes in our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to the world around us."
--Ged Sumner, director of Body Intelligence Trainings and author of Cranial Intelligence: A Practical Guide to Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

"Michael Shea is a master teacher with a gift for weaving together immense bodies of research, information, and insights on Craniosacral Therapy and its influence on the whole human being. True to form, this volume continues his holographic exploration into the development and functioning of human life and the influential dynamics of the practitioner-patient relationship. Dr. Shea finds the space where physiology and archetypal symbology intersect to awaken a new understanding of who we were born to be--and who we still have the potential to become."
--Sharon Desjarlais, CC, CMMS, founder of CranioSacral Success and featured columnist for Massage Today

"Michael Shea continues to expand his explanation of embryology and early development in understandable, practical, and creative ways. He ignites awe for the miracle of life and the mystical aspects of biodynamic practice. He navigates the frontier, where science and spirit meet, and lays the groundwork for a profound therapeutic and healing relationship."
--Bhadrena C. Tschumi Gemin, MEd, BCST, RCST(R), SEP, PPT, founder and director of International Institute of Craniosacral Balancing(R) (ICSB) and teacher and practitioner of Craniosacral Biodynamics and pediatrics in the biodynamic field

"Michael Shea finds a way to articulate the 'almost ungraspable.' He weaves deliciously among hard data, personal anecdotes, dreams, spirit, literature, politics, and humor. He writes sentences and words so that there is space between them, so they can be uncovered as we sink or evolve into all he has been able to capture."
--Amy Zak Urban, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist (BCST), licensed massage therapist, and Montessori school administrator
