THURSDAY - JULY 07

Full Day Workshops

RE: Feldenkrais® Science Network: The Evolution of Knowing & Learning
Presenter(s): Pat Buchanan, Roger Russell, Jim Stephens
Open To: Public, Practitioners, Trainees
Time(s):
9:30am-5:00pm


Since Moshe last taught in Amherst in 1981, the scientific world has seen revolutions in many fields. As new research methods and theoretical models have become available, neuroscience, complexity theory, evolutionary biology and genetics, anthropology and developmental studies have all evolved. What light do these discoveries shine on the practice and theory of the Feldenkrais Method®?

Standing on Moshé’s shoulders, how might we see further? Where do we want to go from here? Join us for this interactive workshop, which will approach the Feldenkrais Method from three perspectives:

Recent research involving the Feldenkrais Method
There will be presentations of several current research projects with opportunities for discussion with researchers on their methods and outcomes.

Theoretical foundations
Discussion of different theoretical approaches for looking at the Feldenkrais Method® and how these can drive research and improve practice.

Epistemological questions
Discussion of how we come to know what we know from points of view including the natural and social qualitative sciences. 

Networking: you will have the opportunity for informal discussions during lunch and throughout the day to find out who is working in your field, what they are doing and how you can cooperate in future projects. This can involve discussions concerning research themes, research resources, collaboration on future projects and fundraising. 

Feature presentation: We are excited to have Dr. James C. (Cole) Galloway, PT, PhD join us for this meeting. This presentation can both inform and challenge our thinking about developmental movement processes. Prior to joining the faculty of the University of Delaware, he learned much about developmental processes, dynamic systems theory, infant research, and the Feldenkrais Method as a post-doctoral fellow with Esther Thelen at Indiana University. Always entertaining and thought provoking, he will present:

BABIES GONE WILD: UNLEASHING INFANT EXPLORATION



As Moshé noted, movement is life. Mobility and exploration lead to happiness, sorrow, friendships, anger, drama…life. The same is rarely said of power wheelchairs! There is a resurgence of interest in pediatric power mobility—especially in children under the age of 2 yrs. This presentation will summarize our recent work combining developmental psychology and pediatric rehabilitation to re-invigorate two interrelated areas: a) infant power mobility, and b) power mobility for socialization in toddlers and preschoolers. We demonstrate the process of learning to drive these robots and the impact of self-directed mobility for those who use them.

Interestingly, a completely unanticipated set of barriers have emerged that prevent children from using power devices for peer-typical exploration and thus constrain their mobility-related developmental gains. Solutions will require a deeper understanding of infant-device interaction, the co-emergence of mobility and socialization, and the hidden lives of children with mobility impairments and their families. In this presentation I will propose a future that involves a radical expansion of power mobility as a dynamic field that can harness infants’ spontaneous movements and offer mobility aids that children ultimately walk away from. This future is deeply grounded in systems theory, embodied development and the co-creative nature of children’s exploration, and demands private-public-community research and development partnerships.

Dr. Galloway is an Associate Professor, Dept of Physical Therapy at the University of Delaware. Since 2000, his Infant Behavior Lab has focused on better understanding how infants physically explore their world through each day. Most recently, he has focused exclusively on assisting infants and young children with special needs in maximizing their exploration. His research team includes parents, early educators, therapists, industry partners, physicians as well as clinical and engineering researchers. Current projects include assessments of brain-behavior relationships in preterm infants, family-based interventions and reality-based technologies for behaviors ranging from newborn head, arm and leg control to infant object exploration to robotic enhanced power mobility for infants and toddlers. His lab is currently funded by multiple grants from the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation. Recent awards include the American Physical Therapy Association’s Outstanding New Academic Faculty Member (2005) and their Pediatric Section Research Award (2009). http://www.udel.edu/PT/About%20Us/People/galloway.html

FRIDAY - JULY 08

Two Day Workshops

SS1: Eyes Organize the Body
Presenter(s): Bonnie Rich Humiston
Open To: Public, Practitioners, Trainees
Time(s):
10:00am-12:30pm
2:30pm-5:00pm

Most of us have grown up without learning to use our eyes properly. The various ways that we move our eyes make a tremendous difference to the distribution of our muscle tonus and to the organization of our entire self. In fact, in the first year of the Amherst training, Dr. Feldenkrais devoted over twenty hours to lessons and talks about the eyes. Exploration of this material is a profound opportunity for both seasoned practitioners and beginners alike. We will learn and experience fundamental changes to the way we stand, sit, lie down, function and see in the world.

M5: First, Tune the Musician - Radical Listening in Musical Improvisation
Presenter(s): David Kaetz
Open To: Public, Practitioners, Trainees
Time(s):
10:00am-12:30pm
1:30pm-4pm  Please Note: Afternoon Session Starts and Ends 1 hour early!

Developing the capacity to tune into one’s own inner organization has tremendous value for ensemble work. Listening to oneself - in the widest sense - and joining with the listening of others to themselves, creates a very different texture of composition. Through a progression of ATM lessons, interactive and group processes, improv exercises in various combinations, and performance, we create the circumstances for a wholly different music - without rehearsals, scores or, for that matter, anything already known. The musicians meet, compose themselves, and play.

Participants - professional or amateur - are asked to bring their instruments and/or voices.

Two Day Workshops

MT1: Art of Falling and Dynamic Stability - Synergy of Judo and the Feldenkrais Method®
Presenter(s):
Open To: Public, Practitioners, Trainees
Time(s):
10:00am-12:30pm
2:30pm-5:00pm

In Higher Judo (written in 1948), Moshe presented judo concepts and highly praised the art of falling as well as dynamic stability among the most important features of judo training. This workshop will expose the practical influence of Moshe’s judo on the Feldenkrais Method®. Using ATM lessons from Amherst and Alexander Yanai, we’ll experience those features as complementary actions, in the aspects of self-preservation and efficiency of action. This workshop is suitable for everyone – no need for previous martial arts experience. I believe that everyone will broaden their knowledge about the Feldenkrais Method® and will acquire new ideas and tools useable for teaching.

Keynote Panel: Amherst Perspectives – How the Feldenkrais Method® Has Evolved
Presenter(s): see description
Open To: Public, Practitioners, Trainees

Our Keynote Panel will reflect on the ideas and perspectives that Dr. Feldenkrais presented in the Amherst training. The 1980-81 training addressed the fundamental principles of our work, forming a foundation for our profession and creating a teaching resource utilized by most Feldenkrais® Professional Training Programs training and advanced training programs in the world today. Now, 31 years later, those that experienced the work then have a unique perspective on where we have been as a community and how we might continue to evolve in it. This keynote panel discussion will be a unique opportunity to share an in-depth experience of Dr. Feldenkrais’ foundational principles, influences and ideas during this period.

News from Childhood: Treasures from Moshe's Earliest Known Writings
Presenter(s): David Kaetz
Open To: Public, Practitioners, Trainees

In Feldenkrais’ little-known childhood writings we have a message from a vanished world - the self-portrait of a gifted child, and through his eyes, a window on history. Moshe wrote these pieces during WWI, when he was a month short of eleven years old. His family, community and the world around them were in crisis. Refugees were appearing at the door, massacres and lynchings were reported nearby. Meanwhile, he was in school, writing (beautifully) about his life, his family, friends, memories, and dreams. This is a multi-media presentation, with stories, music, photos, and readings from the journal.
