Sparks in Bratislava – The BMC® approach to health and care for special needs

A few weeks ago, the fifth transnational mobility of the project “Sparks – Somatic Practices, Art and Creativity for Special Needs” took place in Bratislava. Sparks is a cross-cultural research and exchange about self-directed learning in the specific frame of special needs.

Muscular System

Muscular System

9 days, 63 contact hours
2 days off

Teachers: Thomas Greil, TBA

The muscles establish a tensile three-dimensional grid for the balanced support and movement of the skeletal structure by providing the elastic forces that move the bones through space. They provide the dynamic contents of the outer envelope of flesh encompassing the skeletal structure. Through this system we embody our vitality, express our power, and engage in the dialogue of resistance and resolution.
This course will include:

  • Innovative muscle principles (proximal and distal initiation, muscle coupling and currenting, A and B muscles, four stages of a muscle action, eight functions of a muscle);
  • Embodying muscles and initiating movement at the molecular level (actin and myosin);
  • The embodied functions of proprioceptors (muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs);
  • Analyzing the actions of individual muscles and of groups of muscles from the perspective of one’s position in relation to gravity;
  • Interrelationships between muscles in different parts of the body and as they pass through different fascial planes;
  • Techniques of muscle re-education and training.

Ligamentous and Fascial System

Ligamentous and Fascial System

7 days, 49 contact hours
1 day off

Teachers: Thomas Greil,  TBA

The ligaments set the boundaries of movement between the bones. They coordinate and guide muscular responses by directing the path of movement between the bones and provide specificity, clarity, and efficiency for the alignment and movement of the bones. When all of the ligaments of a joint are actively engaged, the movement of that joint becomes highly specific and is carried effortlessly to surrounding and successive joints. The ligaments support the psychophysical quality of detailed specificity.

This course will include:

  • Initiating movement from the ligaments;
  • Facilitating freedom, resilience, strength and integration of the ligaments through touch and repatterning;
  • Releasing ligaments from the restrictions of surrounding tissues;
  • Integrating ligaments into their corresponding fascial planes.

Nervous system

7 days, 49 contact hours, 1 day off

Teachers: Gloria Desideri, Otto Ramstad, Federica Antonelli

Experience first occurs on the cellular level. The nervous system is the recording system of the body. It records our experiences and organizes them into patterns. It can then recall the experience and modify it by integrating it with patterns of other previous experiences. The nervous system is the last to know, but, once knowing, it becomes a major control center of psychophysical processes. It can initiate the learning of new experience through creativity and play. The nervous system underlies alertness, thought, and precision of coordination and establishes the perceptual base from which we view and interact with our internal and external worlds.
This course will include:

  • Distinguishing experientially the organization of the nervous system: central/peripheral, somatic/autonomic, sensory/motor;
  • Differentiating and integrating from a psychophysical perspective the enteric nervous system of the gut, the parasympathetic and sympathetic pathways, and the somatic nerves;
  • Assessing and releasing blockages in the nerve pathways (brain and spinal cord, autonomic nerves, major somatic and autonomic plexes and their peripheral pathways);
  • Understanding the principles of nerve reversals and methods of releasing them;
  • Exploring balance of the autonomic nervous system as a calm support for intentional movement;
  • How intentional movement provides the container of expression for autonomic movement.

Fluid system

6 days, 42 contact hours, 1 day off

Teachers: Gloria Desideri, Olive Bieringa, Eleonora Parrello

The fluids are the transportation system of the body. They underlie presence and transformation, set the ground for basic communication, and mediate the dynamics of flow between rest and activity, tension and relaxation. The characteristics of each fluid relate to a different quality of movement, touch, voice, and state of mind. These relationships can be approached from the aspects of movement, mind states, or from anatomical and physiological functioning.

This course will include:

  • The major fluids of the body (cellular, interstitial and transitional fluids, blood, lymph, synovial fluid, and cerebrospinal fluid);
  • Differentiate fluids and their characteristics through movement and touch;
  • Initiating movement from each of the fluids;
  • Identifying individual psychophysical characteristics of each of the fluids and their various combinations;
  • Gaining awareness of your own fluid affinities and recognizing their embodiment and expression in others.
