15 April – 27 May (7 weeks)
Wednesdays 11 – 1pm
Beginning with the premise that movement is perception, we will rigorously engage with different Body-Mind Centering® principles. Through a practice of listening and attention you will develop somatic awareness. The workshops will include guided movement, anatomical information, imagery and directed touch, followed by Authentic Movement, shared discussion, and journal writing to integrate the material.
Body-Mind Centering® (BMCSM) is a study of the experienced body in contrast to the objectified body. It is an embodied approach to learning, living and knowledge making. BMC engages the bodymind through the poetics of moving, touch and experiential anatomy, inviting change that is an integration of our physical, psychological, intellectual and imaginative life.
