Conscious Touch Leads to No Mind:

An Introduction to Etienne's Unique Style of CranioSacral Therapy

 

Etienne Peirsman shares all about his career practicing and teaching CranioSacral Therapy over the past 30 years, his lovely school here in Escabosa, New Mexico, and what it's like to arrive in the desert and enter into the midline space of absolute clarity. Etienne dives into his process of developing his own, unique style of cranio, built on top of a deep meditation practice. From the grounded inner no mind space, Etienne combines everything he has learned from a variety of teachers and goes further into deep communication with the heart. Through this discourse, he shares how each practitioner blooms when they (you!) do the same thing. As Etienne is fond of saying, "You are a genius."

Etienne's Keynote interactive presentation at the First Annual Online Global CranioSacral Summit, November 22-23, 2020.
