"Michael Shea has once again written a text that will be of great use to all manner of health professionals. His precision in describing the theoretical underpinnings of this work-coupled with his ability to make clinical application straightforward and clear-bodes well for all of us who work for the well-being of the whole person. Of particular import is his understanding of the interrelatedness of body structures with behavior and with interpersonal relationships. Not only does he weave together the body and mind, but he also stitches together the individual and the world in a seamless continuum."
—Christine Caldwell, PhD, LPC, BC-DMT, NCC, ACS, professor of Somatic Counseling Psychology at Naropa University
"In this fourth volume, Michael Shea continues to weave deepening layers of science, wisdom, and skills with the aesthetics of biodynamic craniosacral therapy. He gathers essences from the masterful in developmental and interpersonal neuroscience, infant mental health and attachment, prenatal and perinatal psychology, biodynamic embryology, and holography to form a tapestry of understanding that beautifully informs his approach. As a master teacher, he provides not only a clear presentation of the theory, but also wonderfullyspecific and clear guidance for the practitioner to learn new skills, practice them, and provide that support for their clients' integration and wholeness at the deepest levels."

"Michael's contribution to biodynamics is huge. His books enter the intricacies of the work and take the reader and practitioner to the depths of inquiry into the nature of life, its unfolding, and its dimensions.... This is a wonderful addition to his first three volumes, and I highly recommend it."
—Franklyn Sills, founder and director of the Karuna Institute and author of Craniosacral Biodynamics and The Polarity Process
