The first year of life from the perspective of Body-Mind Centering® (BMCsm) With Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
Early experiences in life create the foundations for kinesthetic, emotional and academic learning. Babies have a direct way to affect us, to let us know what they need and to inspire us to see things differently. We can learn from them. This perspective is at the center of the work with babies.
Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, the founder of BMCsm, who is featured in this video, is a pioneer of Somatic Education and a visionary in the field of care. She extensively researched early development and embryology, and put it together into an approach, which is informative and transformative. It asks the educator to explore their own development in movement, touch and vocal expression, to be able to attune to babies and their families, and to facilitate the developmental process in a gentle, non-intrusive way.
The video was filmed during the professional training for Infant Developmental Movement Education (IDME) at Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson 2013.
