The Phase courses are set upon the therapeutic powers of the Dynamic Stillness, the Breath of Life, the Tidal Potency, Fluids and other Natural Laws at work generating and supporting Life. Techniques and teaching will be taught in full cooperation with the composite of the Living Mechanism and its intention within the moment. It is not about bones, or levers, or palpation. It is not about balanced membranous or ligamentous articular tension; these approaches are a different composite. It is about the Tide at work as the primary source of diagnosis and treatment, with no application of force to osteopathic lesions or psycho-emotional systems. The environment of the program is in the quiet of the Natural world with a dedicated teacher passing along the oral tradition of Osteopathy to small groups of participants.
These programs are meant to further explore Osteopathic Principles and concepts from the Osteopath’s experiences of the Natural Laws at work under the direction of Primary Respiration. These programs have been designed by teachers that have trained with Dr. Jealous and have been working with Osteopathic studies for years. Each teacher will share what they have learned from the Tide about the indwelling healing forces in Nature at work in relationship to their particular topic, as is our Osteopathic tradition. Through this exploration of Osteopathic principles and acquiring knowledge of Nature’s healing forces, students will have the opportunity to ground their work on the firm foundation of Natural law.
