From ‘Best of the Embodiment Conference’.
“The mind is like the wind and the body is like the sand; if you want to know how the wind is blowing you can look at the sand.”
Body-Mind Centering® (BMC®) is an integrated approach to transformative experience through movement re-education and hands-on repatterning. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical, and developmental principles, and utilizes movement, touch, voice, and consciousness. This study leads to an understanding of how the mind is expressed through the body and the body through the mind.
Body-Mind Centering® has an almost unlimited number wide areas of application. It is currently being used by people in movement, dance, yoga, bodywork, physical and occupational therapy, psychotherapy, child development, education, voice, music, art, meditation, athletics, and other body-mind disciplines.
Please visit the Body-Mind Centering® website for more information.
Bonnie is a movement artist, researcher, educator, and therapist, and the developer of the Body-Mind Centering® (BMC®) approach to movement, the body, and consciousness. For over 50 years, I’ve been exploring the anatomical, embryological, and developmental foundations of movement and how they relate to our psychophysical processes and wellbeing.
