Reflexes and the Vestibular System


Date: 6 – 8 May 2022
Time: 10:00–17:30
Teacher: Dr. Darrell Sanchez (USA)
Language: English translated into German
Costs: CHF 760

Our Vestibular and proprioceptive systems are responsible for our facility to realize balance through the body. Balance is the ability to maintain our center and our verticality over our base of support in the field of gravity. From here we nurture grounding, orienting and responding to what is happening around us in the environment and what we experience in the body

In this seminar we will use the Tuning Board to experience how our reflex system is the foundation for maintaining our posture and awareness of moving, orienting, determining actions and making postural adjustments to the conditions we encounter in life.

We will explore the relationship of the vestibular structures of the inner ear, the proprioceptive system, the cerebellum and the relation of balance to the visual system. We will explore any personal experiences we encounter that may have traumatically influenced our ability to balance and orient. Injury, disease, certain drugs, aging and psychological factors process can affect or impair our sense of balance and confidence in our embodiment.

We will also examine the relationship of our awareness to the voluntary and involuntary movements that arise as we encourage a sense of curiosity and play in equilibrium and motion.

This seminar represents the next fundamental step after the Tuning Board Basic in learning what the Tuning Board is, what it does, and what happens when we are on it.
