Also called “Body-Orientated Therapy of the Mind”“, BMC uses awareness, attention and intention within our body systems and mind states to support our entire selves. This approach to therapy can help us effectively navigate the challenges we face, both internal and external and to experience the joy of dwelling within our bodies from moment to moment even in the face of pain or discomfort.
In our bodies, each and every occurrence of thought, feeling, emotion, memory, action and belief involves changes in pattern of movement, shifts in awareness in the body, and countless transformative processes within our bodies’ systems.
How we experience painful states depends upon how we experience the movements, sensations and activities in the body which correspond to these emotional states. As we learn to expand our awareness to include patterns of micro movements in the body, we alleviate suffering and pain by working directly with our feeling states. We can change our relationship to pain; learn to find joy, and to discover that which sustains interest in and enjoyment of day-to-day life as well as the large transitions and changes inherent to life.
