Exploring Body-Mind Centering features 35 essays on Body-Mind Centering (BMC), an experiential practice based on the application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical, and developmental principles. Using the work of BMC founder Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen as a springboard, the book showcases diverse situations—from medical illness to blocked creativity—in which this discipline is applied with transformative results.

Exploring Body-Mind Centering is divided into four sections, preceded by an introduction framing BMC as a pathway to becoming aware of relationships that exist throughout the body and mind and using that awareness to act.

  • Section One lays the groundwork for this process, with real-life experiences and exercises that encourage readers to interact with the text.

  • Section Two contains valuable case stories describing the experiences of BMC students and practitioners as they work with clients.

  • Section Three shows how BMC can be integrated with other disciplines and practices that include the arts, medicine, and yoga.

  • Section Four illuminates the global applications and implications becoming possible through this work.

  • The book concludes with a biography of Cohen, a profile of the School for Body-Mind Centering, and a history of BMCA.
