WHAT HE’S UP TO
33rd Annual North American Body-Mind Centering® Association Conference | June 6th-10th | Smith College, Northhampton, MA
Resounding, Resonating, and Reverberation
In this workshop we will explore Basic Neurocellular Patterns’ (BNP) Prevertebral series, starting with vibration. Understanding and embodying the Simultaneous Condensing and Expanding Yield at an atomic level will facilitate somatic integration within one’s self, connection with others, and the environments they each inhabit. Breathwork, vocalizing, hands-on work and movement will allow participants to experience a new freedom and support for resilience in present moment awareness. In BMC SCEY, is described as developing in the early weeks in uterine life. It is also an outgrowth of cellular breathing and resonance that has a rhythm and is recorded by the autonomic nervous system.
Modes of Presentation: movement, touch, somatization, vocalizing/sounding, verbal dialogue
Goals: to invite and re/embody the concepts of vibration and cellular breathing and other BMC prevertebral development for resilience, healing, expression and connection with others. Intention, positivity and support are essential as a group dynamic.
