You Are Invited:
We invite you to attend a special event focusing on neuroscience and highlighting the synergy of theory and practice in the domains of human development, learning and performance. Plan now to join us in the San Francisco Bay Area at the 2012 Esther Thelen Research Symposium and Feldenkrais Method Annual Conference, “Embodying Neuroscience: The Feldenkrais Method in Human Development, Performance and Health.”
The idea of “embodied neuroscience” offers rich insights, a rewarding challenge and opportunities for scientists, teachers and health care providers. The Feldenkrais Method of somatic education is an avenue through which scientific understanding of learning, thought, emotion and behavior becomes EMBODIED - concrete and perceptible.
