Description

In her Symposium lecture, Professor Kerr will show that research in neuroscience demonstrates the beneficial effects of body-based attention training on health, healing and happiness. Modalities involving touch have also proven to be helpful.

In this workshop we will consider how this research in neuroscience lines up with embodied practice. The Feldenkrais Method® offers a means of developing an inclusive attention which can follow thought and sensation simultaneously. Through this special quality of attention, new modes of action can emerge. We will experience examples from Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration® lessons to uncover and understand the many ways in which 1) the breathing can become free and palpable, and 2) evoking a global attention helps clarify whole body sensation and enhance well-being. 

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.
