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.

Nervous system

Nervous system

7 days, 49 contact hours
1 day off

Teachers: Gloria Desideri, Olive Bieringa, TBA

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.
