Science has proven that gratitude is good for our health and well being: It strengthens our immune system, improves our relationships, and makes us more optimistic, among other benefits. And yet we don’t give it the attention it deserves, in part because we tend to think that being grateful is something we either are or aren’t, rather than an attitude we can deepen and develop.
Join Alice the day before Thanksgiving to learn about The Feldenkrais Method® and how it can help us cultivate gratitude. Short movement lessons will give you simple tools to enhance your experience of connection and authenticity in the day to day. You’ll come away with an appreciation for how Feldenkrais practice helps us remember our true nature–who we are when we’re not lost in fear and confusion–a state in which gratitude arises naturally.

- At long last: the definitive biography of Moshe Feldenkrais by Mark Reese is available from Feldenkrais Resources!
- On Feb 25 & 26, 2015, I worked with an extraordinary group of musicians at Monette Trumpets: Ingrid Jensen, Urban & Sabina Agnas, Charley Schlueter, Frank Hanson, and Ben Paille. Here’s a photo from before the shop concert:
Pictured from left to right: me, Urban Agnas, Dave Monette, Ingrid Jensen, Dan Balmer, Michael Raynor, Sabina Agnas, David Goldblatt, Tim Gilson.
- Dave Monette arranged for me to work with Scotty Barnhart when he was in Portland Jan 7 & 8, 2015. Click here to watch an interview we did after our second session; click here to watch the PBS “Craft in America” web extra that features footage from my lesson with Scotty!
- I highly recommend checking it out this extraordinary book by New York Times bestselling author Norman Doidge, MD: he dedicates two chapters to The Feldenkrais Method®! More info here.
