‘Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself,’ said Dr. Feldenkrais.
I am a Feldenkrais practitioner. On a simple level, I help people learn to move better. This often has a profound impact on people’s lives. Awareness Through Movement involves a sense of ourselves in movement and our relationship to the Earth that supports us.
The process of environmental and social collapse we are now part of is one we can learn to listen to, beginning with a simple sense of the ground that supports us and our comingling with the atmosphere through our breath. As we learn to listen to this connexion, we grow our resilience and our reconciliation with ourselves and our world. We restore our childlike playfulness and openness. We relinquish old habits of thought and action; holding on, holding in, holding back, holding up…
This work is not goal-oriented. In this situation of not knowing about the future, FM helps us to be in the situation we are in and listen. We attend to what we notice, without judgement, without desire for a particular outcome, open to what might happen.
It is profoundly creative – when we can’t see a way through, playing with small details can suddenly open up new territories. We cannot force or even coax – we must listen and wait, place our attention where it is needed, and see what emerges.
A key aspect of the practice is to sense and acknowledge the expanded self and the constant flow between us and the world. The potential delicacy and richness of somatic experience is a form of deep listening; to self, to the Earth that supports us, to others, human and nonhuman.
I am a theatre-maker and performer. Two years ago I got together with two other mothers and we began a journey towards becoming climate clowns. We called ourselves MEarth MOthers. Guiding us was a sense of impotence in the face of climate change denial behaviours and a strong need to speak up.
Our delving led me to Joanna Macy, to Pablo Servigne and his collaborators and to Deep Adaptation.
It also led me to Laughter Yoga. I use laughing and shaking in conjunction with my somatic and theatre play-based work to bring people together in community and process emotions..
I work with groups and individuals online and in person. I teach Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration. Where possible my practice includes an invitation to take the fresh awareness developed outside into nature, in other words into conversation with the expanded self.
I facilitate workshops in play and theatre games. We hold space after MEarth MOthers shows for conversation and sharing feelings of grief, joy, frustration or whatever else comes.
My clients are individuals – adults and children – and organisations.
