The two IDME courses build on the four basic courses. They apply the BMCsm material to the observation, interaction and facilitation of infants.
One of the specialties of this program has been that it is deeply rooted in its local structures and at the same time a very international program, that brings Eastern and Western Europe more together. The common language is English, and we offer language support – in class and with the written material translated into German and Slovak.
Another focus is on creating and exploring in a functioning community. To apply the ethics of our method on how we teach and learn together, to establish safe framing conditions to then let people explore into their freedom. The treasuring of individual talents while dissolving hierarchies. In this context, this program has always turned special attention to the advanced BMC® students and practitioners who came to assist, collaborating with them and facilitating them to step forward into their personal light and strength.
Many Teachers have taught in Bratislava in the meantime, amongst them: Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Gloria Desideri, Lenore Grubinger, Mark Taylor, Jeanette Engler. We thank everyone who has been part of our program so far – and we warmly invite you all to join us!
