Closed-Head Injury Healed
A long time ago, I was a student, teacher, and practitioner of Cranio-Sacral Therapy. It is beautiful work. I first discovered it in meditation, and called it “Sitting in the Earth Rhythms” before I had any formal training. It’s often quite subtle work, and while teachers can describe the process and help you experience it for yourself, it is an art form that can take years to master. I cannot claim to have ever been a master at Cranial work, but I have a good understanding of the subtle breathing of the body in its environment; the slow and gentle timing of the bones’ movements, opening out and narrowing in again like a long, slow breath. Like a flower’s petals. And then one day, several years after I met Guruji, I stood up too fast in an unfamiliar environment and cracked my head on the corner of a thick wooden bookshelf right at the fontanel. I saw white. I staggered and tried to get my balance. The pain was intense, and didn’t go away. I didn’t.
