Feldenkrais Podcast #1: A Conversation with Martin Weiner

Marty Weiner, 1943 – 2011

Hello everyone – Welcome to the first of what is – I hope – many conversations with Martin Wiener and other individuals of interest to the Feldenkrais community and our friends. Martin (Marty) has a workshop coming up in Ventura, California and in this podcast we will talk about the workshop and Marty’s approach to Feldenkrais.

In his own words:

When I did my training with Moshe in the mid-70s, it was clear to me that he was not teaching a method or system of techniques to be applied to a client. Instead, he was trying to open a new way of seeing and being to us as practitioners so we could truly experience and bring a different mode of consciousness to the world and our work. I have been passionately exploring and developing this approach for over 30 years. At the recent annual guild conference, I was moved by our colleagues’ interest in and receptivity to my work and decided to offer a mentor training once again.

    The podcast is now officially listed in iTunes, but you have to type in “The Feldenkrais Method” to find it, and the author is listed as “unknown,” that should all be fixed soon.

    Intertesting (and useful) podcast, Ryan. But what I found really riveting was the story of how you came to Feldenkrais near the end of the recording, and the exchange you and Martin had around it. Well worth another listen, I think. (and sense, feel, act, etc.)

    Hi Tom – I appreciate your comments. People close to me and many of my friends and associates know of my “history” but I have never put it out there in such a public space. I thought Marty’s ability to help me talk about it was magnificent. Although, I must admit – it felt a little strange as I posted the podcast online.

    cheers – Ryan
