Imagination and Instinct

"...willpower and intelligence are merely superficial expressions of the mind whereas their deeper manifestations are imagination and instinct...Educating the imagination is more important than educating the will. Man fulfills in his life what his imagination directs him to do. Each of us contains his life's image within himself. The course of our lives expresses and fulfills this image…

Confusion and the Creative Process

I found the Feldenkrais Method during a confusing search for how to have a more loving relationship with my body after growing up in a family and society that taught me to hate it. The invitations the Method offered were liberating: feel without judgement, move without comparing myself to others, and sense internally instead of looking to others to validate if what I was doing was correct. Through permission and encouragement to imperfectly cultivate my own inner sense of knowing, I found grace in a clunky un-embodied body. I found presence where I had been absent for so long. This coming home to myself was a creative, dynamic process...

What do you really want?

I have been doing a lot of soul searching, visioning, prioritizing lately and I am learning so much! I am asking myself the question, "What is it that I really want?" which is one of the core questions of The Feldenkrais Method and Authentic Movement practice. My answers are unfolding, but one this is clear: I want connection with myself and others.

INVITATION: Take a moment to pause, connect with yourself and ask yourself the question: What do you really want?

I would love to hear from you. Bringing language to your intentions can be a powerful step in reorganizing your brain/body/life. Please comment below!

I look forward to connecting with you.
