    Feldenkrais and QiGong: Embodied Presence and Healing

    in Lifestyle

    Thousands of years old, Qi Gong, derives from many shamanistic practices that are even older. In these long-ago times, everyone did everything in accordance with nature. They observed harmony in the spiraling cycles of degeneration and regeneration. They became aware of this same spiraling in the human experience. Over time, the spiraling relationship between humans and nature became known in Chinese thought as The Five Element Theory. This same ancient body of thought recognizes all disease as “dis-ease”—as stemming from an imbalance of Qi. Western practices tend to treat disease after it manifests. Qi Gong arose to cultivate the vital life force that would ward off dis-ease by addressing imbalances as they evolved. Fostering harmony creates wellness: in your body; between your body and your mind; in your connection to others; and in your connection to nature. Nature cannot exist separate from your body, your mind, or from other living beings. This is a truth in Qi Gong as well as in Feldenkrais.
    Special guest Carrie Lafferty has been in the healing arts exploring her own inner world and guiding others to do the same for over 26 years. She is a Physical Therapist, Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, Master Qi Gong Teacher and has studied core shamanism with Michael Harner, Nicki Scully and indigenous shamans in Guatemala, Mexico, China & Tibet. She has maintained a meditation practice for over 15 years. Carrie has a healing practice in Seattle which focuses on awareness based practices for connecting to your own inner healer and guide http://movementfromwithin.net

    Anat Baniel: The Anat Baniel Movement Method

    in Self Help

    So often what we do when something goes awry with our body is to take a pill, masking the symptoms but not changing what caused the problem. Instead, it is possible to take advantage of neuroplasticity, that ability our brain has to change. Anat Baniel has developed a way to interest our brains in making changes, that in turn, allow our bodies to behave differently. She’s sharing the method she has developed—after many years of working with Moshe Feldenkrais—that, she says, can enable you to eliminate pain, heighten vitality, reach new levels of physical and mental fitness, and reverse the symptoms of aging. This is a woman you must hear! Click to  Visit Anat Baniel's site and buy her books.
