The Embryo in Us - Human As Embryo ONLINE
The best and most salient course in shape you will ever take in embryology. Jaap van der Wal, PhD, MD, presents the most comprehensive and comprehensible account of how the body shapes itself in the womb, and how that relates to our consciousness, our movement, and our psycho-emotional states. Every practitioner of ‘Spatial medicine’ – meaning all bodyworkers and movement teachers – needs this information to understand the problems and opportunities that appear in our practices every day. This 5-day intensive will change how you perceive the body, and open you up to new strategies for your clients – and even your own development. From Aristotle to da Vinci to Goethe to Blechschmidt, this is a mind-blowing tour of the embryological morphology that modern science has ignored. Jaap has the best synthesis of the changing shapes of embryology ever discovered.

TOPICS COVERED WILL INCLUDE: • Creative principles and forces that work through the human being • Understanding prenatal development: gestures of growth as human behavior and expression • Dynamics of conception, incarnation, embodiment and individuation • Dynamics of Birth. Where do we come from? • The organization of the human body in body axes and planes • Phases of embryonic development as ways of being • The macrocosm in the microcosm of bodily organization • Man and animal: Humans as adult embryos. • The whole body as psychosomatic dimension • The human body as dynamic equilibrium of polarities (Randolph Stone) with the healing power of threefoldness (Rudolf Steiner) resulting in “Man is Mind. Motion, Matter”(Andrew T. Still) • The meaning of the germ layers in the body with the meso(derm) as origin of the “fascia”: together with blood the “organ of innerness”.
TARGET AUDIENCE: The seminar is open for everyone: no specific foreknowledge of embryology is required. The course is open for professionals in health care like e.g. osteopaths, craniosacral therapists, Rolfing® and Structural Integration Practitioners, polarity therapists, trauma therapists and prenatal psychologists or somatic experience, without becoming focused on certain professionality.
