At Play in the Cranial Field

This class is a workshop in the sense that I will not be giving answers but will act more as a guide as we explore the territory. These notes are intended to accompany the workshop, to provide theoretical grounding and to serve as a reminder of some of the things practiced in the class.


It is likely there will be an expectation that we will be working only with the head. Referring to this class as a cranial class is a sort of cover story. The class is about relating to a person as a whole and really has nothing to do with the bones of the skull (the cranium). It would be more accurate to say we are wanting to interact with the person through the nervous system, primarily the brain, housed within the cranium. My real agenda is to move our account of the body from its 18th Century moorings and set it free to be fully alive in the world as we know it now.


As we will be directly concerned with the nervous system much of the class will be spent at a person’s head. In order to do what we will want to do certain skills must be practiced. We will also consider the brain in the belly.
