About the teacher

Craniosacral Exploration

The course is designed as an 6 day 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 considering it as a
bigger journey.

We will use different forms of embodiment practices including daily 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
* Heart Temple


We want all the students to leave feeling confident to use the techniques, we have set up the class with assistants to make sure there is plenty of support and guidance to ensure quality of care.
Additionally you will be able to attend the Level 1 Visionary class in May 2021 for 10% off.
Investment $850 includes morning tea each day.

Alani Klein

Alani has been working as a craniosacral therapist for over 10 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 studied in Canada at Langara collage as well as Body Intelligence .

Anna’s healing arts journey began in 1999 at Nature Care College studying Energetic Medicine, Zen Shaitsu, Remedial Massage and a Post Grad in Cranio Sacral Therapy.

While opening her own treatment practise in Avalon, she worked with Ian White in his flower essence dispensary and became a teacher for the aus flower college course.

Her teaching continued with a mentor ship in facilitation of KaHuna, Sacred Bodywork and Ancient Hawaiian Arts with Mette Sorensen. Teaching massage training in Australia and the USA.

In 2006 she enhanced her practise with a dedication to the teachings of Hugh Milne in Visionary Cranio Sacral Work. “Being mentored by Hugh over 10 years, travelling the world, assisting his courses and organising his classes really sculpted my love for stillness and listening, an awareness of dynamics, archetypes and the rituals of a deep meditation practise, I had the honour of holding space in large groups and opening the doors for many deep and powerful moments”

15 years of full time practise and teaching, and Anna’s life now is filled with running her skincare line, Shemana and Mentoring students and spas to deepen their skills and create rituals of sustainability and connection.

Milne Institute

Visionary Craniosacral Training

May 2021

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.
