I have been getting some positive feedback about this podcast and I wanted to make it available to more folks, so here it is... enjoy!
Rob Cohen has a rich and varied experience with the work. He trained directly with Moshe Feldenkrais, Anat Baniel, Mia Segal and many, many others in our community.
This interview with Rob covers a great deal, including:
- the gifts of Amherst (and perhaps, some of the “curses”)
- the evolution of Feldenkrais’ training process
- why Moshe was afraid of what he knew (perhaps more of his students should be)
- Moshe’s strategy for challenging his own belief in what he knew
- a provocative idea: Did Feldenkrais change his teaching after meeting Milton H. Erickson?
- why Moshe taught almost no Functional Integration at Amherst (Did you know?)
- the importance of direct experience and templated lessons
- why we have more tools to both use and share the work that Moshe did not have.
- Moshe’s feeling of failure about what he had done (learning how to learn, he did not get people there).
- taking responsibility for the creation of our neural pathways.
