Feeling Good: A day of Centering BodyMind with Douglas MacKenzie
Join our exploration with an expert guide for Developmental Movement and Experiential Anatomy of Body-Mind Centering® in a supportive environment that encourages self discovery.
Through comfortably guided somatic meditations, you will dive into the imagination that arises from sensation, unravel your outdated habits, and discover ease in motion.
By exploring the patterns of our earliest movement–from conception through the first year of life and into walking– you can renegotiate limiting habits, recover the freedom of motion that is your birthright, and arrive, skillfully embodied in the present.
Simultaneously you will investigate how our dynamic anatomical systems (bones, muscles, organs, glands, fluids, nerves) coordinate and integrate the physical foundations of our awareness, to reveal the innocent wholeness of our inherent genius.
BMC is applied in fields or performance, dance, acting, singing, music, healing, fine arts, bodywork, sports, therapy + medicine– anywhere it serves us to expand our palate of movement and enjoy how it feels to be embodied.
