An Interview with Ken DiPersio – Full-Spectrum Craniosacral

Today’s post is a transcription of Episode 35 of The Craniosacral Podcast. Ken DiPersio began his craniosacral studies with John Upledger, taught for his institute for a bit, and eventually went on to study biodynamics with Michael Shea. In the interview he talks about some things he learned from Dr. John and Michael, and shares some insights into how he currently views and teaches the work. I received a good deal of positive feedback about this interview, so I thought it would be a good one to put into print for those of you who might like to have it in a readable form. Special thanks to Sarah Tivoli for doing this transcription.

Video Journal of Advanced Biodynamic Training with Michael Shea in Santa Cruz, CA

I recently returned from an inspirational class with Michael Shea and Carol Agneesens in Santa Cruz, California. Michael and Carol have been putting together a systematic approach to working with the cardiovascular system biodynamically. I will share more detailed info on the class material in a later post, but for now I put together a fun video about my experience. This was truly an exceptional group of therapists who gathered together to explore deep healing. I decided to really submerge myself in nature for this training, so I did some hiking and camping during class. I hope you enjoy the video!
