Since the 2nd International Fascia Research Congress in Amsterdam in 2009 Dr. Jaap van der Wal has continually evolved his presentation of unifying concepts between his early scientific work about the architecture of connective and muscular tissue in the posture and locomotor system on the one hand and the phenomenological approach of the embryo on the other.
The workshop explores human prenatal development from conception forward. Learn how the shaping of the body (morphogenesis) expresses essential attributes of the development of both the matter and the spirit of the human being. The scientific method of phenomenology creates a synthesis between modern embryology and holistic anthropology.
In his one to two day seminars, he presents the fascia as a biotensegrity organized matrix organ from the meso-dimension of the human body. He explains his unique take on the functional architecture of the mesenchyme: Based upon Jaap’s phenomenological concept of “mesoderm” as the middle and mesenchyme, the fascia may be understood as the ‘inner tissue’, the dimension of connecting as well as shaping space: a holistic concept on fascia as the matrix organ.
In this course you will see functional architecture as a whole, not just traditional musculoskeletal anatomy. Jaap’s phenomenological approach brings fascia to life as the “organ of innerness, biotensegrity, and wholeness”.
