At the centre of our being is the natural, universal life force which is present in, and permeates all living matter. We refer to it as the vitality or the life itself. In craniosacral work, it is also known as "the breath of life". The breath of life is the expression of life itself, which manifests through constant movement and change within and around the physical body that we identify ourselves with.
It is present in all the tissues, from the deepest, softest tissues and organs located strategically for protection in the centre of the body, through the more condensed and strong supportive structures of our musculo-skeletal system, through to the connective tissues, the surface of our skin and beyond. It is also present in all the fluids that bathe and circulate around our vital structures. It doesn't stop there, it resonates further, enveloping our bodies with the infinite matrix which engages with all other matrices present in the entire universe.
