Faculty Bio

Suzanne Scurlock-Durana

Suzanne Scurlock-Durana is one of the world’s leading authorities on conscious awareness and its transformational impact on the healing process. For more than 30 years, she has empowered people with practical tools that enable them to experience joy in each moment without burning out. These skills help improve every aspect of their lives, from their health and well-being to their relationships, their careers, their creativity, and even the growth of their businesses.

After decades of perfecting her methods of awakening the body’s innate wisdom, Suzanne created the comprehensive Healing from the Core training curriculum in 1994. Today it includes a robust selection of international workshops, webinars, speaking engagements, and audio programs.

One of the original instructors personally mentored by the late Dr. John E. Upledger, Suzanne also continues to teach craniosacral therapy and SomatoEmotional Release® for the Upledger Institute on nearly every continent. She also collaborated with the late Emilie Conrad for almost two decades. Together, they integrated Emilie’s Continuum Movement® with Suzanne’s Full Body Presence to teach other practitioners how to accelerate and deepen the healing process.

Known for her honest, grounded, nurturing manner, Suzanne is adept at weaving together mind, body, and spirit to create a unique environment that encourages profound healing. She is the author of Reclaiming Your Body and Full Body Presence.
