If you have never taken a MI 4-day craniosacral class, you must start by registering for the Cranial 1 (C1) class.

Some classes fill 12 to 18 months ahead.

To be eligible for the C1 class, you need a 150-hour massage training, or equivalent background in sensitive touch. We offer Continuing Education NCTMB # 157866-00 (if you are unsure of your eligibility, please contact the class organizer or MI office).

You must contact the class organizer for the class you wish to take part in to make sure that you are legally qualified to do so. Each state or municipality has or may have different requirements.

We are a minimum two year program.

The classes that Hugh Milne teaches in Germany and Austria are taught in English with German translation, and are quite appropriate for English-speakers to attend. All classes in Tuscany, Italy are taught in English, we always have a couple German speaking Assistant Teachers if any minor translation is required.

The other MI classes in these countries, the ones not taught by Hugh, are taught in German or Italian with no translation.

The organizers in these countries speak excellent English, just remember the 6 to 9-hour time difference if you want to make telephone contact!

Classes in Honduras and Brazil are taught in English and Spanish. Please contact the organizer of the course for more information.
