Dr Brian Freeman PhD
Embryology from a Biodynamic Perspective.

This brilliant lecturer illuminates the biodynamic embryological processes, giving us a deep view of the inherent wholeness of life unfolding.

With content formulated for an audience of 130 osteopaths, the material presented in these 12 lectures is invaluable for understanding the principles of embryology from a biodynamic perspective. In a well documented and persuasive manner, Dr Freeman gives an overview of embryology and its clinical importance based on the work of Dr Erich Blechschmidt, and personal insight from his 50 years of research and teaching.

Lecturing without notes and in a conversational manner, this brilliant lecturer illuminates the embryological developmental processes, giving us a clear view of the sequencing and continuity of life unfolding.

In these lectures Dr Freeman de-bunks many myths and misunderstandings of embryology that have led to confusion for students. Presenting this material in a humorous and logical manner that communicates the depths of his understanding he creates metaphor and bodily connection with the developmental movements. Each lecture is approximately 60 minutes long with an additional chapter of questions and answers from the audience.
