Ignition Processes within The Ordering Matrix met Cherionna Menzam-Sills PhD
Ignition Processes within The Ordering Matrix
William G. Sutherland, D.O. introduced the concept of ignition as a mysterious spark within the cerebrospinal fluid. Later Randolph Stone, D.O. developed a method for working with it. In this post-graduate seminar we will explore ignition processes using an approach based on Dr. Stone’s original work and further developed by Franklyn Sills. We will orient to formative ordering fields laid down at conception within which our cells and tissues are organised, maintained and suspended. We will look at the role of the Long Tide as a vast suspensory field within which all other fields are suspended. We will use Continuum, a mindful, fluid movement and sound practice, to help us orient to our own midline. In preparation for augmenting heart ignition, we will review the embryology of heart development, particularly relating to embryological folding in the fourth week which culminates in the heart meeting an energetic heart centre and beginning to beat as an ignition occurs. We will also practice sensing and augmenting umbilical ignition, which naturally occurs just after birth when the umbilical cord stops pulsing but can be dampened due to various conditions we will discuss. Throughout the seminar we will practice resting within the vast supportive field of Long Tide
Cherionna Menzam-Sills PhD, RCST, BCST, ISMETA RSMT/E
Cherionna Menzam-Sills has practiced Craniosacral Therapy since 1991. She is a senior tutor at Karuna Institute in the UK and a guest tutor at the Craniosacral Therapy Educational Trust (CTET) in London. She became certified as a teacher by the Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America in 2006. She has conducted her own practitioner trainings and seminars in the U.S.A. and Canada, as well as teaching with her husband, Biodynamics pioneer Franklyn Sills, across North America and Europe. Also authorized as a Continuum teacher in 2007 by Continuum founder, Emilie Conrad, Cherionna incorporates this fluid somatic awareness practice into her classes, as well as teaching Continuum across North America and Europe. A therapist for over 40 years, Cherionna draws on her varied experience as Occupational Therapist, Somatic Psychotherapist, Massage Therapist and Prenatal and Birth Therapist. She has studied extensively with Pre- and Perinatal therapy pioneers, William Emerson and Ray Castellino, including assisting them in their work. She holds graduate degrees in Somatic Psychology and Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and has taught in both fields, including at Naropa University and The Santa Barbara Graduate Institute. Author of the book, The Breath of Life: An Introduction to Craniosacral Biodynamics (North Atlantic, 2018), she is currently completing her second book, Fluid and Cosmos: Embodying Our Original Embryological Potential. She is dedicated in her life and work to embodied presence.
