The SOEL BMC® study groups are collaborative research labs  exploring Rosalyn's ongoing inquiries and further study in the embodied anatomy of Body-Mind Centering®.


The study groups are movement labs investigating the dynamic inner nature of the human organism through sensing, feeling and moving complimenting and along side our intellectual capacity to comprehend and understand our self and world through the field of science.

They offer the opportunity for experienced professionals and students of experiential anatomy to come together and explore our natural acumen to sense and feel our bodymind through moving, breathing, sounding and hands on touch and repatterning. Bringing greater awareness and an expanded consciousness to our biology body and the interrelationships of our inner and outer worlds. 



“There is a difference between thinking about a thing and thinking the thing. Thinking about a thing is saying that a thing is “out there” and one then forms abstractions about ‘it’, ‘it’ becomes an object ...


To think the thing – which is essentially a feeling thinking imbued with an intuitive knowing - this is to go through a felt thought and let it emerge and produce whatever it’s going to do, which means  to let it stand in the body and in consciousness without being suppressed and without being carried out. Suspend the activity in both directions, and just let if reveal itself, and see it."

On Dialogue. David Bohm. p77

The Pelvis

the container of our most delicate sensibilities, passageways of elimination of waste and new life

The boney support of the lower abdominal organs is contained in the pelvis.


Made up of four bones, arranged like a bony ring the pelvis is sculpted into a bowl shaped cavity suspended and balanced between the spine and the hips containing the lower organs of digestion, the organs of reproduction and urination. 


Each of these organs has an opening that extends through the muscles of the pelvic floor, made up of contractile and elastic tissues facilitating the filling and emptying of vital life process contained in each and capable of the most powerful forces releasing fluids and solids, and the process of birth.


Great mobility is needed here to support the greatest changes in volume in these three organs. Through movement, mind and hands-on touch we will explore the anatomy and physiology of these pelvic organs, their relationship to each other and the body systems to which they belong, as well as the systems that support and anchor them in the pelvic bowl.

Exploring these subcelluar structures within our cells we will gradually bring our awareness to these sites of cellular respiration and energy. Through movement, hands-on-touch and mind we will be guided through experiential investigations to explore these microscopic aspects of ourself.
