My Education in Craniosacral Therapy & Bodywork: 1999 until Present

Inspiring, stimulating, fulfilling–that’s how I’d describe the role these studies play in my life. Most take place in Denmark, through the Rosenberg Institute. This school is special in that it features highly regarded teachers and practitioners–often authorities in their field–and from Europe and the USA. The entries are in reverse chronological order (most recent first.)
