The Feldenkrais Awareness Summit: Resiliency, Freedom and Evolution

Grow and transform with over 25 leading teachers and visionaries

We live in a time when we have seen that technology can be used for ill both unconsciously and consciously. But in this summit, we will be engaging technology positively to help us return to our bodies and emotions and untangle those habits that get in the way of our resiliency, freedom and evolution.

Of course, freedom and evolution need a solid base and we will learn how to build a base of health from:

  • Breaking news (but not to Moshe in 1940): It’s all about your brain with Cathryn Jakobson Ramin
  • Calm Your Nerves – Body Centered Strategies to Reduce Anxiety Stress and Tension with Julie Frances
  • Acid Reflux and Vagal Tone: It’s a far reach, but it’s real with Elinor Silverstein
  • 7 Essentials for Working with Special Children with Michelle Turner
  • Better Hearing through the Somatic Experience of Sound with David Kaetz
  • Multiple Sclerosis: Take Charge of Your Mobility and Function with Beth Rubenstein

These speakers will be exploring topics such as:

  • From Embodiment to Freedom: The Path of Awareness with Russell Delman
  • The Feldenkrais Method & Interpersonal Neurobiology with Daniel Siegel and Donna Ray
  • Why does Lifelong Learning take so long? Neuroplasticity, perception and prowess with Larry Goldfarb
  • Secret Ninja Training: An Intelligent Nervous System’s Guide to Arts and Activism with Jessica Beck
  • Clinical Hermeneutics: To Whose Rigor will you Submit? With Dave Clark

From that solid base, we can explore ways to go even further:

  • The Feldenkrais Method meets Parkour with John Tarr and Paul Van Kaldenkerken
  • “Gates” within Gait with Carol Montgomery
  • On Better Judo with Moti Nativ
  • How to Become a Balanced Runner with Jae Grueneke

  • The Singing Self: Somatic Learning for Voice Performers with Robert Susumma
  • The Aware Athlete: Why Age is Irrelevant with Scott Forrester
  • Grow Young with Your Dog with Mary Debono
  • On Imagination and Instinct with Tiffany Sankary

And to put the icing on the cake for Moshe Feldenkrais’ birthday on May 6th we will be hearing from Jerry Karzen with
