Dear CST friend,
This is it, we have started our 2019 teaching schedule. We are all well rested by the winter and ready to move the work forward. We have released the second "Circle" article "Patient as Teacher" which I hope you will find interesting and you can link to below. I've also included a few class highlights and a quick reminder below about the CST Alliance teaching philosophy. Our f aculty members are highly skilled practitioners and all of us share the same commitment to improving the quality of craniosacral therapy provided in the world through quality education for students. Please take a moment to read about our commitment to the future of craniosacral therapy education. Many of you receiving our CST In Touch newsletter have already begun your journey in CST. Do you know colleagues thinking about CST? As we start 2019 with beginning classes, this is the time to invite them to check us out. The world needs CST therapists now more than ever.

Happy Day,
Don Ash, PT, CSTA-CP

New: Cranial Circle #56 "Patient as Teacher" Part 2 of 3
Recently we published the second of three "Circle" articles focused on teaching. Watch for Part III in a few weeks.

Excerpt: " The Inner Wisdom of our patients is what teaches us. It teaches us that when the rhythm stops, what happens next is truth."
Committed to Our Students
We have a renewed commitment to be there in support of all of our students, including new students and students transferring in from other programs. Here at the CST Alliance we offer three day classes that fit into busy schedules, are reasonably priced, and are offered in several locations all with world-class teachers. We keep classes small for the best student-teacher support and interaction. Our classes use the original work in Don Ash's world-recognized publications including: "The CST Handbook," "Lessons From the Sessions," "Body of Water, Ocean of Mind," as well as beautifully clear and simply illustrated study guides provided at each class. Our work celebrates the founders of body/mind integration from Emmanuel Swedenborg, A.T. Still, W.G. Sutherland and J. Upledger, as well as new updated techniques and process celebrating new research in the work. Beyond the classroom, phone and email support is available to our students between classes as they practice and process what they have learned in class. Students can also interact with us via the "Don's Circle" essays, our Facebook page, and they can see videos on our YouTube page. V isit our website to see our complete curriculum -- learn more about our teaching philosophy and see feedback from current students. We are dedicated to moving the work forward!
