“An act that has no orientation and no timing is an idiotic excitation, that’s all.” [emphasis is ours].
This was a comment made by (Moshe) Feldenkrais while teaching in Amherst.
Not only are actions dependent on orienting, but indeed we “...cannot perceive unless we are aware of the attitude and orientation of the body.” (Feldenkrais, Body and Mature Behavior, p. 79). [emphasis ours]
On the surface, it can seem easy to appreciate the importance of orienting well for quality action.
However, the profundity and depth of this aspect of action is one that easily slides under the radar. There are nuances to orienting that are either taken for granted, or that we are unaware of, not only in ourselves, but then naturally, with our clients.
There is much to be unpacked, explored, experienced and integrated around this topic!
We’ve had to postpone the Advanced Training: Orienting for Action - Directing Yourself with a Purpose for obvious reasons, yet wanted to share a little taster not only to keep you engaged and curious, but to help everyone continually re-orient during these wild times.
When: Friday, March 20: 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. EDT (Yes! Only a couple days away!)
Cost: $40 CAD
