Grounded and Centered with Todd Jackson
As bodyworkers, we're instructed to be grounded and centered when treating clients. But what does that mean? How are they each defined? How are we to know when we're there? How does being grounded and centered influence the quality of our work and the quality of the client's experience?

About the Event
Being grounded differs from being centered. And, they are more than a state of mind. We can physically feel each, distinctly. Join us for an exploration of how to define these terms, experience their physical embodiment, and understand their role in facilitating healing for clients. If you learned in massage school that being grounded and centered was important, but feel challenged to specifically state what that means, challenged to go beyond assuming that you're grounded and centered, this brief presentation can help you find clarity and help you bring your best to each session. Presented for practitioners of craniosacral therapy, though anyone in a helping profession will benefit. Time has been included for an optional Q&A at the end, for those with questions that pop up during the talk.
100% of proceeds donated to the NWCA. Free to NWCA members, $15 for others.
Todd Jackson has studied the biodynamic approach to cranial work with European osteopaths since 1994. Teaching since 1997, he encourages students with patience, lightheartedness, and a generous amount of hands-on guidance. Todd developed the “spectrum of quietude” as lens through which we can observe health unfolding within clients, ourselves and the world around us during cranial treatments. He maintains a high teacher to student ratio, favoring learning and transformation.
