From the Publisher
"Charles Ridley is one of the most authentic practitioners I have met. The clarity with which the connection between tides, waves, and consciousness is made, coupled with his vivid anecdotes and practical practitioner exercises, makes this an inspiring and helpful book for beginner and advanced practitioners alike."— Hugh Milne, third-generation osteopath; founder of Visionary Craniosacral Work; author of Heart of Listening"This wonderful book is firmly rooted in technical knowledge and practical instruction, yet there is also a palpable quality that inspires. Thank you Charles, for your clarity, your courage, and your gentle guidance."— Allison Post, co-author of Unwinding the Belly: Healing with Gentle Touch
