WILLIAM SMYTHE, M.A.
“Gravity is the root of lightness; stillness, the ruler of movement.”
Dr. Rolf’s vision was not about creating another manipulative system of healing to compete with chiropractic or osteopathic medicine – her passion was human potential. She was more aligned with the social sciences and human behavior. Our work as Rolfers contacts our client’s frozen history and traumatic wounding through the myofascial network of the physical body.
In private conversations with her early students, she described her work as a kind of exorcism, the expulsion of negativity, toxicity, and evil spirits so that more light could enter the body. She was indeed a shaman, who related to the more metaphysical aspects of the human being – etheric, astral, mental, and causal; now described as physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
Jung said, “The subtle body refers to that part of the unconscious that becomes more and more identical with the functioning of the human body, growing darker and darker and ending in the utter darkness of matter.” Our unconscious thoughts and feelings exist in the subtle body and the less access we have to them, the more likely they will be crystallized as physical structure and symptoms.
In essence, our subtle body emanates from the inner core of our being. No wonder Dr. Rolf stated that for the Rolfer to evolve we need to receive deeper levels of work. This is not “random” work, but work that continually redefines one’s form through the matrix of the ten series. The ultimate goal is to receive more gravity and experience the buoyancy of the antigravity response.
This workshop will focus on identifying and treating the needs of each student in their deepening embodiment of this work. Students should plan on being inspired and vitalized with their new inner discoveries and understanding of Rolfing, which they can bring back to their clinical practice and life.
Workshop and hotel registration should be made before the end of March.
