Join Bonnie at the Somatic Movement summit. She will be presenting about the language of movement as fundamental to development, cellular consciousness in relation to nervous system consciousness, and initiating through the awareness of a movement rather than through the external form of the movement.
Below are Bonnie's upcoming workshops. After several very full years of teaching around the world, Bonnie is taking some time to focus on her writing and video projects. She will be teaching a limited number of workshops, mostly in the San Francisco Bay area.
If you are unable to make it to one of her workshops, there are approved School for Body-Mind Centering® Programs and Immersion Series offered by licensed training organizations in 15 countries. These programs use curriculums developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen as well as her written materials. Many courses in these programs and immersion series can be taken individually without a commitment to an entire program or series.
Bonnie also has book and video materials available for home study. Many people use these materials to deepen their study and practice, start study groups, and share with friends and clients.

Embryological and infant developmental processes build the foundation for our experience of self and others. Exploring these processes through creative movement and play with children can enhance their sense of self and their ability to organize, express, and communicate with others.

Touch is more than our placing our hands on someone. It involves awareness, consciousness, attention and intention. It also involves how we initiate touch. With brain initiated touch, the brain directs the hands. With embodied touch,we listen receptively and cellularly, and on a level more immediate than the brain.

Our tissues and organs provide the essential components of the patterns from which we weave our personal stories. These stories are then recorded by and stored in the templates of our autonomic nervous system. As we embody our cellular patterns of expectations and responses, we gain understanding of their relevance and importance in past experiences.
August 18 – 29, 2018 | Berkeley, California, USA
Using movement, touch and dialogue, this workshop will be a journey through our own embryological development from an experiential perspective. In exploring the development of our form, we can discover the primal roots of our structure, perception, respondability, and presence.
Movement is our first language. Dance is the poetry of that language. To be fluent, dancers need to move with ease, flexibility, strength and expression. Although we often think of dance or other movement as being muscle based, all of the body systems play important roles in the support and articulation of our body… [Read More]
