The Somatic Blueprint(TM) approach to the PPN World—an overview

Ray will engage you in simple exercises that provide the felt sense of the Blueprint. He will describe how the blueprint serves to integrate PPN trauma, so that we can be more effective in our lives and if we are professionals, more effective as practitioners. There will be time for Q and As.

About Raymond Castellino, D.C. (retired), R.P.P., R.P.E., RCST®

Co-founder and Co-Director BEBA

Ray is a pioneer in the field of prenatal and perinatal trauma resolution since 1992 and a wholistic practitioner since 1969. He is a founding board member of aTLC (Alliance for Transforming the Lives of Children), as well as an adjunct faculty member of the Santa Barbara Graduate Institute’s Pre and Perinatal Psychology Master’s and PhD programs and their Somatic Psychology PhD program. He has been a frequent presenter at the APPPAH (Association for Pre and Perinatal Psychology and Health), CSTA-NA (Craniosacral Therapy Association – North America) and APTA (American Polarity Therapy Association) national conferences and international conferences in the UK, Germany, Spain and Switzerland. He currently has trainings in both the US and Spain.

Ray is the founder of Somatic Blueprint(tm), an approach to PPN somatic psychology. He has collaboratively developed a comprehensive program that provides services for families and individuals, and for PPN professional development. He supports families and adults to integrate unmet developmental needs during the PPN period. He teaches how to ground in the resilient resourcing blueprint and from there, explores traumatic imprints. His methods are unique in that while he is well versed in working with individual adults, children and babies his primary emphasis is on the relationships within the family. He attends to the quality of energy between family members and how traumatic PPN imprints affect them in present time. Moreover, he has developed ways for family members to become free of the adverse affects of PPN imprints. In1993 he co-founded BEBA (Building and Enhancing Bonding and Attachment), a non profit family research clinic. He also created a Womb Surround small group PPN process workshop for adults who wish to do personal work. For professionals, he has developed a whole system for training practitioners from his Phase I, a two year Foundation Training, Phase 2 Family Practitioner and Womb Surround professional development program, and Phase 3 a program for training trainers in his work.
