Body-Mind Centering® is an integrated and embodied approach to movement, the body and consciousness. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, it is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psychophysical and developmental principles, utilizing movement, touch, voice and mind. Its uniqueness lies in the specificity with which each of the body systems can be personally embodied and integrated, the fundamental groundwork of developmental repatterning, and the utilization of a body-based language to describe movement and body-mind relationships.
Body-Mind Centering® programs present detailed and specific approaches to the personal embodiment of our cells, our body systems and our developmental patterns and the ways in which all of these interact with our awareness, perception and consciousness. The principles and techniques learned in courses can be used for personal development and for professional enhancement.
The heart is the spirallic centre of our fluid body. Our stories are imprinted in the sacred chambers of our heart, it tastes the flavours of the myriad substances travelling through the labyrinth of our inner landscapes. Revealing the consciousness of our own heart to ourselves provides us with the strength to open the door of compassion and embrace ourselves and others, perceive with clarity and act with integrity.
