The Key to the Gillespie Approach

If I could boil the Gillespie Approach Trainings down to one word, it would be “listening.”

The main focus is to open to the skill of listening to the craniosacral fascial system over the three or six days and practice the work upon leaving the Trainings. Everyone has a brain and fascia and is almost certainly sitting with unresolved traumas.

This skill is dependent on letting go of the ego and being present for the patient. Stop thinking and just feel. Your mindset is that I am with you now to facilitate your healing. I need to be totally involved with the process but not attached to the outcome. This is a critical aspect when working with family members.

The fascial web is holding all of its traumas back to conception. As we hold the body, we are listening for that layer of strain that it wants to release now. We are allowing the body to tell us its story as it journeys through space and time.

By helping to free the web, we are opening the craniosacral fascial system. When this system starts to function better, good things happen. Over time, you will become more comfortable and confident where this listening skill becomes a professional part of your consciousness.

The beauty of the work is that it represents authentic healing with no drugs, surgery, technology, manipulation, or supplements. You are completely trusting that the body knows best how to heal itself.

The work is especially effective with newborns and infants, who are solely dealing with the effects of their fetal, labor, and delivery traumas. In a perfect world, the work needs to happen on the first day of life.

Let’s clear the slate of the traumatic birth effects, which allows every human being to be the best s(he) can be.
