Symposium presenter Alva Noë says, “To understand ourselves we need to look to the way brain, body and world make consciousness happen.” We open to this insight through experiencing movement as a key to life and awareness. In the Feldenkrais Method® the inner and outer are coupled which makes life possibilities expand through development. We experience new ways of being in the world. Without movement there is no organized body and brain, no interaction and no coherence within our being. In this workshop we will explore some of these themes through experiential processes which can reveal how movement creates multi-model perception and complex development and learning. In many ways the work of Moshe Feldenkrais that we practice corroborates the philosophical and scientific work of Professor Noë, as his work can expand our understanding of what we do. 

This workshop is intended for a professional audience. Professionals are individuals trained in disciplines relating to human development (such as teachers or other educators, psychologists and psychotherapists), in performance (including sports and the arts), and health care. Professionals include practitioners, researchers and administrators in these fields.
