It is a healing art form and a treasure of somatic tools. It involves various mind states of moving from the different systems of the body such as the fluid, organ, endocrine, nervous, skeletal, muscular, ligamentous, and fascia systems. BMC® is experiential anatomy. Through touch, hands-on patterning, illustrations and visual aides, through movement and observation, one learns to embody their personal anatomy. BMC® includes developmental patterns, which are the patterns we go through from the watery environment of the womb, to the land based patterns of crawling and walking. BMC® is personal and universal. It is cellular and whole.

Body-Mind Centering® is an ongoing, experiential journey into the alive and changing territory of the body... An important aspect of our journey in Body-Mind Centering® is discovering the relationship between the smallest level of activity within the body and the largest movement of the body-aligning the inner cellular movement with the external expression of movement through space. This involves identifying, articulating, differentiating, and integrating the various tissues within the body, discovering the qualities they contribute to one’s movement, how they have evolved in one’s developmental process, and the role they play in the expression of mind. In BMC® we are the material, our bodies and minds the medium of our exploration.
