Feldenkrais, Politics and Independence (Feldenkrais Video)

I get occasional emails and Facebook comments about why I blog about the Feldenkrais Guild history and other topics about the politics and infighting in the Feldenkrais community. Well, I can tell you in one word: Independence. The various political ideals and mythology about Moshe Feldenkrais and his work conspire to limit the emotional, intellectual and financial independence of practititioners. And ultimately limit the speed of the growth and adoption of the method itself. Here is a short video on the topic.


  1. I always like your posts Ryan. Not because i always agree. You look from a different point of view which embodies the method.

  2. Thanks a bunch Phil. For the record, I do have doubts from time-t0-time about what I am doing….but only sometimes. I think we need a good grasp of the history and the consequences of our individual and group decisions.
