Craniosacral Level 1 Mullumbimby copy.png

Craniosacral Exploration


This class is the first level of a 18 month (400hr) course , it is designed to either stand alone as an exploration or to continue on a certification training  that is recognised through the IICT allowing students to be recognised and insured as certified Craniosacral Therapists.

The course is  6 days over 2 weekends or 5 days consecutively in July to support those traveling from afar.


It is an intensive to deeply dive into the magic of craniosacral therapy, combining both physiological and intuitive approaches .


This is a high-value course for body workers and massage therapists who want to incorporate more sensitive techniques into their practice. This intensive will also suit anyone who is interested in craniosacral, and is curious about it as a bigger journey.

I will use different forms of embodiment practices including Qi-gung practise which help open the bodies energy systems and help us experience how we harness movement and stillness in craniosacral work.


You will gain an overview of :
* the bones and muscles of the craniosacral system, their articulations, sutures and role 
* the reciprocal tension membrane ( also known as the core link )
* the formation and circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid and the role of the central nervous system.

Class content:
* Anatomy of the Craniosacral System
* Working with the vault bones
* Freeing the Atlas
* Vagus nerve and trauma
* Sacrum and lower back
* Core Link



Our classes are supportive and empowering . Each student is given individual attention , guidance and mentorship.

Alani  offers one on one mentorship to all of her students as well as facilitating group practice days. 

One on one mentorship offers guidance and support to help you accelerate and deepen your journey into the mysteries of craniosacral

Testimonials :

Alani is an accomplished cranio sacral therapist with extensive knowledge. We are very fortunate that she has decided to gather her skills and share them with us through a compassionate heart. It is a gift to the cranio sacral world to have a strong woman with an open heart passing on sacred knowledge. If you are considering craniosacral therapy or bodywork I cannot recommend Alani and her course highly enough.



Alani is a great teacher, she has an intuitive approach and gives a broad perspective of Craniosacral therapy. It’s an unfolding journey and I look forward to Level 2 to sink deeper into this fascinating therapy (modality).



Alani provides such an all encompassing foundation to Craniosacral theory and practice in a way that is accessible and fascinating. She has such amazing insights into this work and is a fabulous teacher!



Alani Klein

Alani has been working as a craniosacral therapist for over 13 years

She has studied both bio-mechanical and biodynamic and has found a beautiful way of working somewhere in the middle, listening to the body as the wise master.

Alani began her journey in the healing arts in 2003 in Costa Rica and feels very fortunate to have learnt Rebalancing Body work with Menlha Bruneau, her original teacher, to whom she will always be indebted for opening up a wonderful world of mind/body healing .

After 5 years of Deep Tissue massage Alani was introduced to Craniosacral by Menlah and experienced profound shifts in her own body from the lightest touch.


In 2007 Alani began her studies with Craniosacral Australia and completed her 2 year study. Since then she has graduated from Langara collage as well as nearly completing Body Intelligence training and has also attended a level 1 and 2 with the visionary craniosacral institute .

Alani is pleased to be bringing renowned teacher Matthew Kirsch from the Milne Institute to the Byron Shire  

Milne Institute
Visionary Craniosacral Training
Australia 2023


Visionary Craniosacral -Milne Institute


Visionary Craniosacral Work® is a soothing, noninvasive, hands-on therapy.

The craniosacral system includes the brain, the cerebrospinal fluid, the system of membranes inside the cranium, all 22 cranial bones, the spine and the sacrum.

What the Navajo call ‘the wind’s child,’ Genesis calls ‘the breath of life.’ It is a silent force, a field of chi, which blows through the craniosacral system, animates it, and infuses it with information and intelligence.

It is possible to listen to this field. The ability to do this is called ‘the heart of listening.’

A visionary knows how to touch a client with precise and gentle contacts that help the client feel more aligned, and more at home in themselves. Sometimes, by touching just the right place in just the right way, a visionary can help the client understand what troubles them, and what they need to reclaim their equanimity, and their place in life. Such work can also help the client access and release their healing potential.

The Milne Institute offers an avocational, in-depth training in the heart of listening, a visionary approach to craniosacral work. This may mean that students may not be eligible for certain kinds of CEU or vocational credit. What we offer is continuing education, not vocational education. Kindly check with your local licensing authority to be sure our training will give you the educational credit you need.

If you want to go deep, be deep.
