Learning from scarce resources
If ever there was doubt about climate change, this year, especially on the west coast, quelled those doubts. There was very little snow this year, a disappointment for skiers and boarders, but more importantly it mean there was significantly less water in the reservoirs. Then we experienced one of the warmest and driest summers on record. The brown grass on everyone’s lawn and on city green space is now the new normal. We kept reminding ourselves that the grass will come back and will be green again when it starts to rain. And then this weekend our prayers were answered, sort of. The rain came but with it heavy winds and fallen trees and branches, another casualty of the warm dry weather. I hope any of you who endured power outages have now had your power restored.
Feldenkrais classes, workshops and private Functional Integration sessions look like they are focused on movement. But really perhaps one of the key objectives of the Feldenkrais Method® is to teach us how to examine our habits and to learn when and how to change them in order to make our lives easier.
Our impetus for change is usually pain or discomfort. However we don’t know what to change and now to do so: instead we look to others for quick fixes. Being willing to learn to do something you know how to do but in a different way is real learning. In more advanced learning we are willing to explore several options for action so as not to be tied to one way, new or old.
I hope I have intrigued you enough to consider trying one of our classes or workshops or coming for a private session.
