Experiential Anatomy: A Somatic Approach

This course provides a framework to study the skeletal, organ, muscular, and nervous systems from a Western, scientific, and experiential/personal perspective. Through a combination of anatomical information, guided imagery, improvisation, and movement, the body can become a creative source for artistic response, increased sensory awareness, and body-mind synchronization. Based on the pioneering work of somatic educator, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, the originator of Body-Mind Centering(TM), this work is primarily a course in somatic (the study of the soma, or body) techniques of embodiment.
