What Supports Your to Move Your Vision?

It was quite a journey this last month. I created something bigger than I expected: Move Your Vision 2018 was a grand experiment that involved over 900 human beings!

What supports you to move your vision, to evolve, grow and mature? What helps you connect the dots between your physical self & your thoughts/ feelings/ ideas/ creative impulses? We will continue to explore these questions this year in Movement & Creativity Library.

Shifts in my practice

I am seeing that Organic Intelligence is the place I want to begin working with new clients. Then the Feldenkrais Functional Integration comes naturally when the time is right. This has been particularly effective for people who feel stuck, blocked creatively or who are wanting to be more in their bodies but find they spend a lot of time in their heads.

The work is also helpful for moving beyond stress/ anxiety/ trauma---and the beautiful thing is, the focus is not on the trauma, or the what's-wrong-attention.

The Wisdom of Doing Less

"Do a little less than your utmost while learning... continuing to do a little less than your utmost, you go on improving.... The wisdom of doing a little less than one really can pushes the record of achievement further and further as you come nearer to it, similar to the horizon that recedes on approaching it." 

This is Chapter 20 from Feldenkrais Illustrated: The Art of Learning, excerpts from the writings of Moshe Feldenkrais, edited and illustrated by Tiffany Sankary.

Thoughts on failure and learning

“Failure is information—we label it failure, but it’s more like, ‘This didn’t work, I’m a problem solver, and I’ll try something else.’” -Carol Diener What's your attitude about failure? Infants and children are constantly trying things they don't yet know how to do. What can we gain from understanding a child’s approach to motor learning?
