He set up the Fountain Clinic in London, a busy specialized craniosacral therapy clinic. He set up and coordinated the Living Anatomy course for CTET offering an holistic view of the body’s anatomy and physiology. He is a director of the Healthy Living Centre, a multi-disciplinary alternative therapy practice in London.

Colin Perrow is a renowned international teacher and pioneer of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy. He has been a course co-ordinator at the Karuna Institute and was one of the teachers at the institute who helped to create the biodynamic approach. Colin has practiced Zen and Mindfulness for 30 years which enables him to bring clarity and humour to his work. His teaching is grounded in his 20 years experience of running a successful private practice in South Wales. Before he graduated as a Craniosacral Therapist in 1990, he was a successful healer and one of the leading practitioners of Kirlian Photography in the UK. This energy photography gave him valuable insights into the relationship between mind body spirit dynamics and the nature of health. This early research came to fruition in biodynamic cranial work and the creation of Heartfulness Trainings. This could be summerized in the statement; that in order for us to be well we need to attend to all aspects of our nature and life. Rather than a more traditional top down approach, where the teacher instructs the student into how their experience should be, Colin is particularly interested in teaching people to become aware of their own experience and to create a learning environment where this is supported.
