Phase 2, Online Review Day, Sunday July 10th 09:00 – 17:30

Our Phase 2 Review Day will re-explore the principles and concepts of this pivotal course.

With Zoom and other platforms being the only means of group communication during covid, we have all become a little more open to the use of this platform for teaching. Many osteopaths have asked Christian for more online content/teaching and he has responded, offering Zoom tutorials and shorter Zoom discussion groups.

This course day is for osteopaths who have previously attended Dr Jealous’s phase course curriculum, at least up to, and having completed Phase 2.

The day

Dr Sutherlands sensory shift from structure to function via the medium of “A Fluid Body”, meets the sensory experience of our hands well, more readily matching our palpatory experience. Understanding the normal attributes and behaviour of this fluid world, and the nature and qualities of it’s adaption in lesioning, can be the key that opens the door to restoring our patients health and comfort.

Through lectures, guided practicals, meditation, and group discussion we will look to include revisiting, as possible, our understanding of:

  • The fluid body a a medium for physiological functioning
  • “Inhalation/Exhalation” of the fluid body as the underlying mechanism for tissue movement
  • The Potency as a primary motive force for involuntary motion
  • Inherent “Normal” expressions of movement of the fluid/potency body. Long and transverse axis fluctuations
  • Rebalancing (optimising fluid body expression)
  • The CV4 and EV4
  • Automatic Shifting, the Intelligence of the potency within the fluid body
  • Mechanisms for treatment support for resolution of lesioning patterns
  • More …? Specific support as directed by the group

How will the day run?

We will look to optimise our time together, but avoiding the fatigue that Zoom/screen attendance can bring. Short breaks will be woven through the day, and time left for questions after each session. There is no formal timetable for the day, which by necessity has to be flexible to accommodate group dynamic and needs, however, we will look to explore as many of the topics listed as is possible in the time available.

How will the practicals work?

You will of course require access to a treatment table, and osteopaths attending the course will need to either, a) Look ahead and plan to work with another colleague attending the day, perhaps from their practice or home. This is the ideal option where possible, as working with another osteopath will allow more experiential feedback.   Or if not feasible,  b) Attend the course knowing they have access to a suitable (consenting) model for our practical sessions together.
