Covid19 update: February 15, 2021
Rosewater is open at this time to established clients only. I expect to be more fully open sometime in May. I do look forward to connecting with you. Please check back for availability, or use the contact form below to get on the wait list to be contacted then. In the meantime, please learn about Craniosacral Therapy by reading articles on my blog, especially about The Tides, Sitting Butterfly, and Chronic Pain Recovery. They do offer my best recommendations.
There are also ideas for applying this Craniosacral-focused self-care to life lessons. In doing so, we connect to the Long-tide, the palpable fluctuation of cerebral spinal fluid in its slowest rhythm which reflects a state of mind, calm, clear, and rooted to our deepest resources and all of life. Long-tide is what my teacher Ursula Popp referred to as our ultimate resource of well being in this life. And it is the place, that already exists, where we are already whole and never broken. It is Life. Let's connect to the forces through which it unfolds its mysterious grace.
"Now is the Time" by Hafiz trans. Daniel Ladinsky
Now is the time to know
That all that you do is sacred.
Now why not consider
A lasting truce with yourself and Life.
Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were a child's training wheels
To be laid aside
When you finally live
With veracity and love.
Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.
This is the time
For you to deeply
compute the impossibility
That there is anything
Now is the season to know
That everything you do
"Craniosacral is a revelation to me; an elegant form,
weaving the most beautiful principles of natural forces of health
emerging in the evolving mind - body - spirit healing arts.
It fuses meditation, mind-body unity, somatic embodiment, anatomy, physiology,
the foundations of osteopathic medicine, and the arts of therapeutic listening and witnessing.
It engages the body's healing impulses, inviting one into intimate relationship
with the creative process of one's own emergent and spontaneous being,
connected to ancient patterns all life share."

Our blueprint already contains natural potential for the biochemical states of solution, grace, balance, grounding, health and ease. The integration of these is experienced as inner harmony.
It is my personal experience, and the experience of so many, that Craniosacral Therapy is one safe, effective way to access our inner harmony. This reflects, little by little, into an experience of harmony into life's outer expressions.
