Moshe Feldenkrais said "Life is movement. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself." Many of us get caught up in assuming that the method is about making movement easier, more efficient and graceful, and YES that is a wonderful part of the work, however the deeper investigation is in how we ‘get stuck’ in our habitual ways of moving and thinking, and the Feldenkrais method offers a powerful tool to discover HOW to ‘get unstuck’. Because life is unpredictable and ever-changing, how do we find ways to become more adaptable, see things from more perspectives, become more resilient, and discover alternative ways to achieve our intentions that help us to lead more aesthetically satisfying lives. All of this involves our ability to learn – bringing our curiosity to the fore, and finding ways to challenge ourselves and to explore alternatives. I hope you enjoy the practical ways we will explore this in the conversation you will be watching.
