Feldenkrais Webinar Replay Available

The marketing webinars from February are now available as a product – ready for immediate download. We had a great turnout for the workshop with 22 people from accross the United States and several from Europe in attendance.

 

Giselle GCFP“I came to Ryan knowing next to nothing about internet marketing but I knew I needed it if I wanted to take my Feldenkrais practice to the next level. Now, I now have two high-ranked blogs, a website with “email sign ups” and a bookstore! I am fully engaging the web with email my lists of my clients, email updates, sales pages, surveys, products and more. Best of all, my workshops are packed AND I can manage all this on my own!” Giselle St. Hilaire, GCFP, Sunyata Movement Studio

 

The Overview

Each of the two webinars was approx 60 minutes long and they will give you a broad overview of what is possible on the internet for expanding your income, website rankings, the number of visitors to your site and your overall knowledge of how you can use the web to expand your reach.

In addition to the webinar recordings, there are a huge of number of free bonuses that you will get. The bonuses, quite frankly, are worth about ten times the cost of the product itself. They represent the summation of years of work and will save you the time, hassle and expense of having to search for, learn and find the information on your own.

 

“There are so many ways to approach being on the web and after attending Ryan’s webinar, I was able to see what the next steps are for me. It helps that Ryan is a Feldenkrais practitioner – he understands that this is a process and that you make a first pass and then a second pass. Ryan definitely has the technical information to answer all your questions and the resources he provided with the webinar were invaluable. I’ll be back for the next one.” Kim Cottrell, GCFP, 2009 FGNA Program Chair

Live Webinar: 27 Low and No-Cost Ways To Expand Your Income Using The Internet

Do you have a Feldenkrais-based practice or side-business and want to make more effective use of the internet?

Join me in February for 2 power-packed webinars to help you create more influence and income online.

In these interactive online workshops, you will gain both a broad overview of what is possible for you online and also get the skills you need to increase your income using the internet.

Some of you already have all the basics in place and just need some additional strategies. Others are just beginning. Either way, I can give you new tools and new strategies for making income from the web.

To make more income online, you need three things:

1) A website or blog
2) Visitors to that website or blog
3) Ways to make revenue from your visitors.

(Well, you need some PASSION to, but I assume if you are reading this page you have passion for what you are doing).

Most people get things backward and create their website first. Not always a good idea. I’m going to show you how to find targeted online niches first, and then how to create multiple products and services for those niches so you can have multiple revenue sources. This can dramatically increase your businesses success. (It’s taken me 3 years get the strategy down, so pay attention.)

And don’t worry, I will show you how to “tune up” your current website too.

 

Here’s what you will learn in these back-to-back interactive webinars:

• How to Find Untapped, Low-Competition Niches (CRUCIAL)

Is Feldenkrais a Cult?!

There is a conversation on a private Feldenkrais forum related to some people’s perception of the Feldenkrais Method as a cult. The forum conversation is mainly regarding marketing. That is, finding better ways to explain Feldenkrais principles and introduce people to the work.

However, I know from my website database that many people search for the term, “Feldenchrist” on google. I have assumed that is some type of misunderstanding that comes about when some hears a foreign-sounding word and has to make some sense out of it.

I was curious if there was any information on the internet about Feldenkrais as a “cult.” I conducted a brief search on Google and previewed the first 100 or so websites that came up under the keyword phrase “Feldenkrais Cult.” The search led me to two listings (bold emphasis mine).

From QuakWatch.com

Feldenkrais Method® (Feldenkrais technique): Mode of bodywork originated in Israel by physicist and engineer Moshe Feldenkrais, D.Sc. (1904-1984). It is a form of “movement reeducation” whose alleged results include “increased levels of vital energy” (“renewed inner vitality”). The method has two “aspects”: (1) private, one-on-one instruction (Functional Integration), and (2) group instruction (Awareness Through Movement).

And from New Zealand Cults:

“Feldenkrais Method, The. Not Yet Rated. In effect a subset of Somatic Education, it is marketed in New Zealand under such names as Move To Improve. Basic idea seems to be that much body pain and physical restrictions (lack of movement) aren’t caused by old age but by learned habits and repetitive poor use of the body. OK so far. However the Feldenkrais Method, like many other alternative physical therapies, claims that by its application all sorts of things can be fixed, stress reduced, etc. There is no credible research evidence to substantiate such claims, and so is considered an alternative treatment. Although it is included in a prominant NZ online New Age resource listing, it may not be particularly New Age itself, but it and its practitioners often do have strong links to the New Age.”

The entries above, mild as they may be, are making insinuations without a shred of data and no attempts to define terms. Quakwatch mentions the “alleged results” of “increased vital energy.” What in the hell is increased vital energy? I have certainly never heard someone make that claim about the Feldenkrais Method and have no idea what it is or for what it stands. Could Quakwatch be kind enough to cite a reference for the quote above? Is that not standard scientific procedure? They are saying, in essence, “It’s not scientific, take our word for it.”

There is a growing pool of research regarding the Feldenkrais Method. Although it is certainly not overwhelming there are many attempts and many peer-reviewed articles concerning the Feldenkrais Method. (For a sadly outdated list that I have not updated recently, see: http://www.psych.utah.edu/feldenkrais/index.php (Sorry, the U of Utah deleted my website after I left grad school.

And the New Zealand cult network wants to associate the Feldenkrais Method with the “New Age.” Although, admittedly, it’s a meaningless term undefined by most who use it – including the people who write for the New Zealand cult network. I would think that a group attempting to steer people away from cults (a worthy undertaking) would do more to define what the heck they are talking about.

So called “scientific methods” when applied to human affairs are a notoriously slippery slope. I have been, and remain, completely shocked at the utter garbage that I was exposed to when undergoing a PhD program in Psychology at the University of Utah. The terms that were bandied about – latent variables, manifest variables, internal working models, cognitive structures, etc. etc. ad naseum. Sometimes the concepts are useful and can lead us into empirically testable hypothesis. Sometimes there is nothing behind them except an untested, naive belief that human behavior has “causes” that need scientific sounding names and numbers to describe them. Maybe they do – but if you can’t find one in the physical world, simply making a cause up and giving it a name is hardly science.

It’s not clear to me that “Feldenkrais Research” as it stands is going to do much better. I hope that in the zeal to gain the external stamp of approval from “science” that Feldenkrais Practitioners do not end up losing what makes the method so unique – helping living, breathing, human beings created actionable and meaningful differences in their lives.

So, is the Feldenkrais Method a “cult”? I think the answer is “no.” Though people can use the work in cult-like ways. Is there a “scientific basis” for it? Well, go to PubMed or another research website and you will find some evidence in support of the work.
