The Leading Edge is a term coined by Ray Castellino in his work training practitioners to understand prenatal and perinatal somatic therapy; it is one of the most important and basic skills a practitioner can have. What is a Leading Edge? It is primary therapeutic window for healing and repatterning imprints that are overwhelming, and running unconsciously in our lives. While working in our Leading Edge, we can bridge and integrate the energy that has been frozen or encapsulated in our bodies with the skills of presence, conscious awareness and the bodily, felt sense.
In this course, we breakout into 1 hour sessions to practice working with our blueprints and imprints. We recognize the Leading Edge, and use skills and practice to change the pattern! The Leading Edge is a place of dual awareness, of being both in the present and having a memory. Once this territory is recognized, we employ the tools of titration (small doses in a slow manner) and pendulation (shifting states), to encounter earliest imprints and then slowly integrate them into the lived experience of the client.
This course is for practitioners who have taken The Leading Edge Somatic Skills, Integrated Prenatal and Perinatal Dynamics, trainings of Ray Castellino, including The Teachings of Ray Castellino. It is meant for practitioners to practice working with Leading Edge Skills:
- Acknowledging difficulty
- Identifying Imprint
- Broadening to Stabilize
- Deepening to Integrate
- Titrating in small doable pieces
- Pendulating back and forth to shift the state
Choreography of our Sessions:
- We meet and settle for the first half hour, including a review of the Leading Edge skills, and any questions. Sometimes, there will be a demonstrations.
- Participants will be broken out into dyads to practice for 1 hour (30 min each for practice and debrief)
- The last half hour is for harvesting from your practices, sharing what is learned, asking questions.
There are four meetings per session.
Maximum number of participants per 4 week session: 30.
