Definition

'In craniosacral therapy biodynamic designates an attempt to always work in relationship to the whole. The starting point is orienting to slower tides than CRI, being aware of midline function and embryological forces and letting the breath of life do the work.'[1]

Derivation

Blechschmidt[2], Jealous[3], Sills[4].

N.B. Biodynamics in cranial work is not derived from the work of Rudolph Steiner, the root is Jealous's reading of Blechschmidt.
