Lesson 9: Connecting with the Ground - with Julie Peck
In this delightful lesson intended for a wide audience, Julie helps the participants learn to be more connected with themselves... and the ground.
Lesson 9: Discussions and clarifications with Students
Lesson 9: Clarifications and Discussion
At the end of teaching "Connecting with the Ground", Julie invited questions from the audience. Several students requested clarification of the three ways. Julie's response is so delightful and meaningful.

Lesson 9: Beginnings
Curious about beginnings? In this introduction to the public session above, Julie talks a bit about her path, what attracted her to the Method, how she discovered new aspects of herself that she never thought it was possible to improve.

If you missed Julie's audio ATM, please listen to it now (click here).
We began this reflection by sharing how we felt after the lesson. This is always a useful topic for self-reflection. The mind is often pulled to what didn't work, or what was a challenge for a minute, rather than sensing the larger picture of what changes happened by the end fo the lesson.

-- When listening to the sharing of experience, you might also attend to what Julie said at the end of the lesson, asking how the self-image may have changed. In other words, the team is talking about the changes in self-image.

Then Julie talks a bit about the lesson, and weaves in the idea of how the self-image is so plastic.

Lesson 8: Beginner's Lesson
Julie wrote,
I taught this ATM to someone who had never done one before  (though knows quite a bit about the FM), and is a visual artist.  I wanted to record the ATM for anyone so did not specifically design the ATM for him, however I was thinking of his way of interacting with the world.
I laughed when on talking about the ATM later he reflected that one of the things that struck him in the lesson was ‘how he should hold the brush to trace around himself’ and his other comment was how little awareness he generally had of himself, and that it had made a difference when painting afterwards to notice small moments of awareness when his attention went to questioning “how” he was able to involve more of himself in the process.

​It is so wonderful to be continually surprised at how people enter into the ATM process, their  different styles, how they use their attention, and what they take from the lesson.

I hope you enjoy the process of looking at your self image.

The team reflects on Alice's delightful lesson, "Tilting Legs, Softening Chest". Alice notes that this was a live recording with a continuing class that had two new students, and she shares how she changed her process to include the needs of these two students.

Lesson 7: Tilting Legs, Softening Chest
Alice has shared with us an interesting lesson which has components that may be familiar to those who have done a number of lessons. By tying these components with some new variations, Alice brings us new awareness of the line of the spine, from the tailbone to the head and, as in the title, softening of the chest.

<![CDATA[Team Reflections on Lesson 6]]>Sat, 30 Nov 2019 22:48:10 GMThttp://kelownafeldenkraistraining.ca/recordings/team-reflections-on-lesson-6
The team reflected on the new lesson by Gisele, 'Rolling Head, Pelvic Circles while Standing on Knees".
Some people find this lesson difficult -- not usually physically, but because we are thinking about the movement in a complex way.
​When you are in a complex or difficult situation, what are your reactions? In the Feldenkrais Method, we learn to recognize these reactions and apply alternate strategies. The team reflects on their own responses and provide a fascinating series of options.

To review the ATM before listing to the reflections, click here.

Lesson 6: Rolling Head, Pelvic Circles, while on knees: Gisele St. Hilaire
This lesson challenges you to have more inclusive attention and to orient yourself more clearly in the world. Many find this lesson mentally demanding.  It can be helpful to remember: 
  • Go slowly
  • let go of any judgement
  • Let go of ambition
  • Be Kind to yourself
  • Develop the capacity to stay in the process
  • when you get confused, simply stop, clarify your attention, ask, "What is it you are attempting to do?" and start again.
Applying this lesson to real world experience, when you are in a complex or difficult situation, what are your reactions? Are there some aspects that you find in this lesson? 
Over and above all these ideas, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
