Learn to facilitate healing for early developmental trauma in babies, children or adults.

In 2014, Myrna and her husband Ken began offering two week Pre and Perinatal Education residential intensives every summer at their retreat center nestled in the pristine mountains surrounding Nelson, British Columbia. They continue to be an enriching experience to all that attend, and the center is now branching out. Starting in 2020, Level 1 Summer Intensives will be taught by Elsa Asher, Clara Cunningham, and Eileen Sendrey in Bellingham, Washington.

This intensive will include in depth personal experience as well as a chance to practice skills to utilize everyday in your work while in a safe, nurturing, supporting surround. The intensives are very appropriate for Craniosacral Therapists and anyone who works with families in the child bearing or early years, or who works with adults therapeutically. Understanding the primal period, from preconception through the first year of life is vital for anyone who works therapeutically with people, including infants, children, families or adults. The intensive includes doing many shorter exercises in triads, with hands on support, as well as cognitive learning, including handouts, videos and live teaching. We study practical strategies for healing early developmental trauma as well as have opportunities for personal healing work and practice facilitating others. This Intensive is at least 50% experiential. Each participant has an opportunity to do a longer 2 hour session with the facilitators.
