You may have noticed that I do not write much on this blog anymore. You may even be relieved! Or as one anonymous Feldenkrais practitioner succinctly put it, “Hey asshole, did you finally get a life of your own?” The answer is of course, “Yes.” Though I do hope at some point David Bersin and Paul Rubin will consider writing me without the benefit of anonymity. Even my mother has stopped resorting to those tactics!
I am writing you today because my friend Amanda sent me an email asking me if I would help her promote something that is related to the Feldenkrais Method: mindfulness. In particular what to do when people say that a particular mindfulness strategy causes them anxiety or they simply refuse to engage in a particular meditation. Perhaps as a Feldenkrais practitioner or fan, you may have had a similar issue? That is, how do you get yourself “on the floor” to do Feldenkrais when you do not want to? Or how do you continue to do Feldenkrais if it brings you into areas of life that frighten you or that bring anxiety. And what about your clients? Put another way, when are the “signals” that scare us actually a starting point for deeper self-exploration, embodiedment and growth? I am wondering if the free video might spark a conversation on the topic. Would love the read any comments that you care to leave below after you have watched the video.
To get the link to video, you will have to enter your email. And later there will be a paid program of some sort. Though that is optional. Click to get the video.
