Please note our COVID-19 Response toward the bottom of this page below the calendar.
The Craniosacral Biodynamics professional training meets 4 times per year in New York City, for four day classes, Monday through Thursday. Running a full BCST training in New York requires sufficient group size.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is the leading edge of CST practice!
Wellness Institute emphasizes a functional approach within a Biodynamic context. You will gain new skills that can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your practice.
Another advantage to the Wellness Institute training is our emphasis on how BCST is part of the larger field of energy medicine. Our graduates include medical doctors, psychologists, nurses, massage therapists and other bodyworkers.
See the complete description and training outline on the Craniosacral Therapy page of the site.
Lead Instructor: Roger Gilchrist has taught Craniosacral Biodynamics in the USA, Australia, Europe, and to osteopaths and medical doctors in Russia. He assisted Franklyn Sills in a foundation training for four years and continues to assist with advanced seminars.

COVID-19 Response from Wellness Institute and Disclaimer
Wellness Institute remains committed to starting new training programs in 2021. Because of the unpredictable nature of the public health crisis, certain start times to initiate new trainings cannot be guaranteed. This website represents the current status for intended trainings.
Some trainings listed block registrations to avoid having to make refunds in the event the epidemic prevents or delays classes. You should, however, register on the Interest List for the relevant class.
In regard to all trainings, you should register yourself on the Interest List for that training in order to be counted among students in the intended group, and to receive information and updates about the classes. Register on the Interest List one of three ways: 1) Send your name and contact information to this email: WellnessInstitute@yahoo.com (please note this is not the website “info@” email and is more direct than the Contact Us address), 2) Call us at +1-719-256-1111, or 3) click the Register for Class button on the site, but realize in some cases you are paying for the class when you register this way.
We need a confirmed group size to begin new trainings. The public health crisis has interrupted and altered our regular enrolment and registration process. Therefore, we will not begin new training programs until they have filled a sufficient group size. That is, start dates will be postponed if necessary, until the required minimum group size is reached. The start of the training will be delayed one interval in the typical training cycle for any given postponement. Your place is the training is held once you have registered, per above, and had your training application approved (for trainings that require a formal application).
We recommend you follow these steps for entering a training:
- Identify the training you are interested in.
- Register on the Interest List, per above.
- Submit the application for BCST trainings
- Check the website and email contact for updates about your training.
Thank you for understanding and being flexible during this challenging time!
