Your vision will become clear when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside awakens. ~ Carl Jung

This training meets curriculum guidelines of the International Affiliation of Biodynamic Trainings (IABT). She continued her training to obtain an Advanced Biodynamic Diploma in 2013. She is an Associate Polarity Practitioner and member of the American Polarity Therapy Association (APTA). She also has over 550 hours of integrative somatic training for allied professionals with David Sawyer, L.P.C. in Pre & Peri-Natal Psychology and the Treatment of Shock and Trauma.
A Registered Nurse, Cynthia has practiced nursing since 1982 in Idaho and Washington in both rural and critical care settings. She obtained certification as a Certified Emergency Nurse and Instructor to teach trauma courses through the Emergency Nurses Association. She also taught Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support & Neonatal Resuscitation Courses through the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics. She volunteered as an EMT / Advanced EMT and trainer for eighteen years with Idaho Emergency Medical Services.
Cynthia’s practice is informed not only by her extensive experience in nursing and studies in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, but also by her personal journey with Bioenergetics, Core Energetics, Watsu and Water Dance methods of aquatic bodywork. She has participated in Prenatal and Birth Journey workshops led by David Sawyer, L.P.C. Added to these is her contemplative monastic formation in the Benedictine tradition.
Cynthia’s sessions allow for a holy, harmonic healing experience. She holds a sacred healing space of unconditional love, support and divine reverence which helps the client to feel safe, cherished and ultimately respected. She is gracefully gifted with an ability to guide the sense of self back to a place of overall balance, harmony and integrity. It is true rehabilitation of spirit!

To me, Cynthia’s craniosacral sessions are a form of embodied prayer. Her gentle compassionate presence, combined with her highly refined skills, has given me new connections within my body, mind and spirit.

I’ve had many types of body work and was highly surprised to find that a gentle therapy session with Cynthia could actually work miracles! I’ve had hip and low back pains for years. I had just two sessions with Cynthia and have witnessed awesome results in my body and mind. I was able to drive over 1,000 miles to S. California since my session with no back or hip pains (something I haven’t been able to do in years).
