MOVEMENT, PLAY, DISCOVERY, TRIAL-AND-ERROR, LAUGHTER, NEW THINKING, EXPLORATION, ADAPTATION, CREATIVITY, RESILIENCE
These are things that your brain is hard-wired to do from the moment it starts to function in the womb . They underlie everything that we are, all that we think, all that we are capable of.
I believe that we can all do the things we to do in a better, more enjoyable, more satisfying way if we so desire. We have the right to chose the uses to which we put our body and our mind.
As a human being, we are heir to almost limitless choices of thought and action. Our bodies are not restricted in the way that we can adapt as we encounter obstacles. I also believe that obstacles are important for our sense of our self, they allow us to find a deep-seated and satisfying ingenuity. Curiosity drives us to find work-arounds in all sort of areas of our lives. Successfully finding our way around an obstacle adds a zing to our sense of ourselves.
I am a Senior Practitioner of The Feldenkrais Method, since 1999. I am an award-winning theatre director, actor and teacher of theatre skills since 1987. I now specialise in the devising, development and delivery of arts education projects that focus on an arts-based and somatic philosophy of learning. You can read more about me here.
I have worked with people with disabilities, professional performers, mothers, fathers, elders, children, writers, therapists, teachers, skiers, mountain-climbers, swimmers……all kinds of people in all kinds of occupations, and in many countries.
My work focuses on shedding light on processes of change and how we grow to awareness of how we can make change happen.
Bertolt Brecht, the great post-war German dramatist and poet wrote:
One can, with the last breath of one’s life, change everything!
