We will practice Listening to the self, Connecting with others from within and Relating to nature. The explorations are based on Body-Mind Centering® and MoverWitness Exchange, and aim to empower our movement in life, from a place of self discovery and re-connection. Marina will facilitate our smooth rooting to the present moment while setting us free to be and express fully who we are.
Body-Mind Centering®-Private sessions by Marina Tsartsara
BMC® is an experiential and creative process in which embodiment of our cells is explored in the context of self-discovery. Together we will explore personal embodiment of our body systems and our developmental movement patterns and the ways in which all of these interact with our awareness, perception and consciousness. We will use 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 movement re-patterning (from being in the uterus till the end of our first year of life), and the utilization of a body-based language to understand and describe body-mind relationships. The underlying goal of the sessions is to discover the ease that underlies personal transformation.
