Body-Mind Centering® explores how your bodily state can affect how you think or feel, and how your feelings and thoughts express themselves physically. It does this by observing your movement, tone of voice, and quality of touch. By observing these things, the BMC practitioner aims to answer the following:
1) Which body systems (muscular, digestive, nervous, etc.) are in the foreground of awareness?
2) How do your patterns of movement fit into your lifetime of development?
Imbalances in body function can often be righted by encouraging less conscious functions to emerge from the background or "shadow" they have been in. Movement difficulties can often be traced to an earlier phase of development, and retrained by re-exploring movements of that phase. Both explorations require the practitioner to learn from the client rather than impose an agenda. It is a joint exploration, a mutual dance. Even in deep rest, the client of a BMC session remains an active participant.
