    CHECK SPAM AND PROMOTIONS FOLDERS

    It has come to our attention that emails we send are sometimes going into junk, spam, or promotions folders rather than inboxes. Please check your junk, spam, and promotion folders regularly for email from us.



    ATTENDING LIVE CLASSES

    Bonnie’s Winter Series of classes are hosted through Zoom in a webinar format. We will send you a personal link to join the class about 24 hours and 2 hours before each class begins. Each class will have a different link.


    We simultaneously broadcast the class on YouTube Live. If you have any issues in Zoom, or do not like to use Zoom, you can attend the class on YouTube Live. We will include the YouTube Live link when we send you the Zoom link.



    CHAT GUIDELINES

    The Zoom and YouTube Live chats will be enabled for the Winter Series classes. The chat is a place for you to share your experience in class with other Bonnie and other participants and we encourage you to communicate with Bonnie and each other through the chat. As we aren’t able to be with each other in person, it’s a wonderful way to connect with each other in class.


    The Zoom chat for each class will be made available to all present and future participants of Bonnie's 2021 Winter Series. We will upload the chat for each class when the recording of that class is ready.

    Reading the full Zoom and YouTube Live chat — what you are experiencing during class, your questions, general comments, etc. — allows Bonnie to connect with participants and better prepare for the next class. It also brings her great joy!

    Advertising your classes, events, or services in the chat is not permitted. This is a space for sharing your experiences, thoughts, and questions about the material Bonnie is presenting.

    If you prefer not to see the Zoom chat message popup notifications, you can hide the them by popping out the chat window and dragging it to the bottom of your screen, as in the video below:


    Zoom chat:

    • If you would like to share something with the entire group, choose All panelists and attendees in the drop down menu in chat before you send your message.
    • If you would like to share something with just panelists (Bonnie and her team), choose All panelists in the drop down menu in chat before you send your message.

        SOMATIZATIONS AND SHORT LESSONS

        Awakening Breathing in the Lobes of the Lungs
        Opening our awareness to our breathing in the cells and alveoli (air sacs) of the lungs engenders a quiet, meditative state of being. It is a state of receptivity to what is, rather than what we think or wish would be.

        An Introduction to Embryonic Breathing
        This video is an introduction to embryonic breathing. Bonnie shares her story and experience with embryonic breathing, the anatomy of embryonic breathing, and a somatization to guide you through your own exploration of embryonic breathing.

        Postural Tone in Relation to Gravity and Space
        This teaching and somatization are based on the condensing and expanding of our cellular matrix due to the position of our body in relation to the earth. This innate cellular condensing and expanding establish pathways of tonal flow through our body.

        Embodiment of the Thoracic Diaphragm, Liver, and Gallbladder
        This short lesson is a guide for you to bring more clarity and freedom to your diaphragm and upper abdominal region through breathing, cellular consciousness, and movement.

        Exploring the Embodiment of Cellular Consciousness through Movement: A Body-Mind Centering® Approach - Free Class
        This is a 90-minute free class Bonnie offered to start her 2021 Summer Series.
