Clitoral Embodiment

Saturdays in August & September, 12:30-2:00pm EDT

The embryology of the genitalia represents an unexplored frontier in Body-Mind Centering® (BMC®). Clitoral Embodiment remedies the inattention paid to female and non-binary genital development by presenting a framework for embodying multiple potentials for sex and gender expressions through imagery, movement, and embryological study. Standing at the intersection of somatics, embryology, and gender/sexuality studies, Clitoral Embodiment uses BMC embodied anatomy through guided solo somatic movement and dance improvisation to explore an underlying biological explanation for sex and gender fluidity. People of all genders are welcome, and all explorations in these classes will be practiced fully clothed.

Embodying Neuroqueer/Neuroqueering Embodiment

Saturdays in October, 12:30-2:00pm EDT

Using somatic practices and readings about newer understandings of neurology and trauma such as polyvagal theory, we will develop methods to reclaim and celebrate our uniquely weird ways of thinking, being, and making. Nick Walker, one of the people who coined the term Neuroqueer says, "Neuroqueer is both an identity and an ethos, a noun and a verb," and describes it as "Engaging in the 'queering' of one’s own neurocognitive processes... Engaging in practices intended to 'undo' one’s cultural conditioning toward conformity and compliance with dominant norms."
