Abstract
Body-Mind Centering® is a somatic practice that includes the study and embodiment of human embryological development as a foundation for understanding movement and the body. The embryology of the genitalia represents an unexplored frontier in Body-Mind Centering. Unlike its embryological corollary, the penis, the clitoris is absent from most illustrated anatomy texts. Clitoral embodiment remedies the inattention paid to female and non-binary genital development by presenting a framework for embodying multiple potentials for sex and gender expressions through imagery, movement and embryological study, with an emphasis on invagination over penetration. Standing at the intersection of somatics, embryology and gender/sexuality studies, clitoral embodiment uses classroom/studio learning and practice to explore an underlying biological explanation for sex and gender fluidity.
