This course

Wednesday 22 April from 10 am to 1 pm (CEST)
Thursday 23 April, from 10 am to 1 pm (CEST)

This webinar consists of 2 parts. Part 1 will take place on April 22, 2020 and part 2 on April 23, 2020. You can only register for both.

With an article with the above title, Jaap van der Wal, MD PhD, anatomist-embryologist (and phenomenologist, and morphologist and philosopher), more or less says goodbye to a decade of contribution to and participation in fascia research. Since his first presentation in 2009 for the 2nd International Fascia Research Congress (Amsterdam), he has contributed to the imaging and understanding of fascia by means of lectures, lectures, seminars and workshops. He also participated in the committee of the Fascia Research Society which finally formulated a generally accepted definition of fascia in 2015.

Short table of contents.
22 April 2020 10:30 till 13:00
Technical details concerning the seminar. Create your own definition of fascia. Introduction about Jaap and fascia, quotes and definitions. Anatomy leads to the parts, architecture leads to relationships. And still the two ground each other. Or is it a two-stream land that might come together?
Short break
The embryo or the body as a process. Connective tissue: separating and connecting. Muscle and connective tissue in the Posture and Locomotion System: in parallel or in series. Continuity or anatomy? A connective tissue sparing dissection of the elbow region. It’s not only about Where, it’s also about How. Pressure and tension, struts and cables; tensegrity. Articular joints are not hinges! “Muscle anatomy” versus vesture anatomy or architecture.
23 April 2020 10:00 till 13:00
Tensegrity as a principle. The muscleman enlarged with dynaments About the “dynament” and Biotensegrity. And about Motion / movement versus shaping / Gestaltung. Blechschmidt’s idea of “no physical forces but gestures”.
Proprioception is organized according to architecture, not according to anatomy.
Short break
Introduction into fascia as ‘organ’ of the Inner and innerness. ‘Mesoderm’ and mesenchyme as primary fascia. Two fascia definitions. About polarities, Triune Man and consciousness.
