by Roger Russell, GCFP Carl Was Always There When I began my Feldenkrais® life; in San Francisco in early June 1975, Carl Ginsburg was there. Even during that first summer, Carl's thoughtful voice resonated through all of the excitement in his quiet way. His voice continued to come through, not loud but clear, over the decades of pioneering passion and friction as the Feldenkrais community grew. Whether it was his organizational-political wisdom or professional insight; Carl's presence was always there. Now he is gone. On December 23, 2018, around 11 PM CET, Carl Solomon Ginsburg died.

Ira Feinstein: How did you become interested in exploring how the Feldenkrais Method® can help those living with neuropathy? Becci Parsons: I'm a Feldenkrais® practitioner living with neuropathy. Over the course of my active life, I've had a number of disc injuries. My original disc herniation was in 1992, a year after I became a Feldenkrais practitioner. I managed pretty well for a few years, largely because of what I learned during my professional Feldenkrais training. When my disc fragmented and the fragments traveled and compressed my spine nerve root, which innervated my foot, surgery became a necessity.
