Tools

BMP has developed a unique array of tools and theories, such as:

Embodiment Practice: the practice of listening to sensations and allowing them to return to their physiological functioning via breath, movement, rest, and voice.

Circular Attunement: a physical attunement between two people in which the multimodal percetual streams of the other person are allowed to intermingle with the physiological movement through one's own body, circuling continuously within a moment.

Brain Balancing: an experiential sensing and intention of balancing various aspects of brain functioning, including top-down movement with bottom-up movement, left and right hemispheric functioning, and sensory and motor functioning.

Relational Somatics: the utilization of somatic experiences as a medium of relationship, as in primates picking insects off each other as a method of self-soothing.

Interaction Cycle: a four step process beginning with embodiment, proceeding to identification of a desire, noticing the somatic response to the desire, and allowing the response to sequence through to completion.

Somatic Dialogue: a process of decision-making based on Damasio's Somatic Marker theory, utiliizing internal dialogue between two choices and the somatic responses they engender.

Energetic Mapping: the noting and tracking of energetic flow through the whole body, internally and superficially, centrally and peripherally, particularly noting areas of sequencing, congestion, stagnancy, and deficiency of energy.

Energetic Development: the interface between psychological and physical development.

Pulsatory Return: a moment of rest via attentional return to the whole length of the core of the moment.

 
This experiential training is invaluable because Aposhyan models an embodied presence, which she supports in others through her direct sophisticated language.
