On Being Human
12/4/2018
Margot Schaal, GCFP
Lately, I have taken to reading young adult novels while commuting– books about being human, and about be-coming. These books ask questions, as practitioners often do during a Feldenkrais® lesson. They speak to problems; some are proverbs, or humorous. They describe characters with myriad behaviors, many with complex personalities, neither entirely kind nor all cruel. How youth are introduced to adult life correlates to how clients are introduced to a somatic approach to self-knowledge, experiencing themselves in this moment and place.

One of these is the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education.

If you are a human being, you have a deep natural wellspring of creativity that is your greatest resource for vitality.
