Feldenkrais Perspective on Learning to Learn


"Movement is Life. Without movement, life is unthinkable." -Moshe Feldenkrais

Moshe Feldenkrais wrote a beautiful manual to accompany Awareness Through Movement® lessons called Learn to Learn which illustrates the philosophy of the Feldenkrais process.

Here are the section headings:

Do everything very slowly

Look for the pleasant sensation

Do not "try" to do well

Do not try to do "nicely"

Insist on easy, light movement

It is easier to tell differences when the effort is light

Learning and life are not the same thing

Do not concentrate

We do not say at the start what the final stage will be

Do a little less than you can

Do a little less than your utmost filled-c2.jpg
Continuing to do a little less 2 - C4.jpg

These are illustrations from Chapter 20 in my book Feldenkrais Illustrated.
