SONDER   -- n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

Sonder Movement Project is also the name of our organization, offering Body-Mind Centering® licensed programs in Somatic Movement Education and Infant Developmental Movement Education. Courses and programs are offered in Rhode Island and greater New York.

Body-Mind Centering is a somatic practice that explores embodied anatomy and developmental movement in the context of experiential learning, created by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen more than 45 years ago.
