S3 E5 The Mind and the Brain show art S3 E5 The Mind and the Brain

Feldenkrais for Life podcast

How does the mind influence the brain? It was a widely held belief that the mind was a result of the brain, and the mind could not reflect and affect the functioning of the brain. It was just around 2000 that this belief started to change. Dr. Feldenkrais understood this decades ago and applied the idea of using the mind to change the brain in his Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration® work. Dr. Feldenkrais is considered one of the first neuro-plasticians. Visit Donna’s site: Visit Al’s Site: Get your first Feldenkrais lesson from AchievingExcellence.com. Use coupon...
