Esalen Workshop Audio Set
Esalen Workshop with Moshe Feldenkrais


 
with Moshe Feldenkrais
For years it was thought that no audio record remained of the Moshe Feldenkrais's important and beloved Esalen workshop.

Generations of practitioners have delighted in the brilliance and scope of the Esalen lessons, available until recently only in written form. Now for the first time since 1972 (!) the audio recordings of this groundbreaking course are available for people to have and study at home.

The Esalen workshop was an extended program taught to a small group of professionals with the intention of introducing the participants to the breadth and depth of the Feldenkrais Method and eventually forming them as teachers of the Feldenkrais group work, Awareness Through Movement. The participants included many of the leading people in the humanistic psychology movement, thus the atmosphere was lively and Moshe was highly engaged. The course took place over a five-week period and included 46 outstanding Awareness Through Movement lessons, each highly structured and suited for a 45 to 60 minute class.

Note: These are "MP3 Audio CDs", so they may not play in older CD players. They will reliably play on your computer or an "Mp3/CD Player". They also work with most DVD players.

From the introduction to the manuscript by David Zemach-Bersin:

"I would suggest that The Esalen (workshop) is one of single most important documents we have of Feldenkrais' teaching of Awareness Through Movement. It is a veritable tour de force. The ATM lessons are taught in a clear and deliberate sequence of gathering complexity, giving us an unusual insight into Feldenkrais' pedagogical priorities and developmental thinking. In other words, we are able to see Feldenkrais explicating his thinking by the means of Awareness Through Movement, and we are able to infer exactly what was functionally and pedagogically most important to him. As an added bonus, Feldenkrais wants the participants to understand the theory behind what he is doing, and so he offers a level of explanation about the lessons not to be found anywhere else, except for in the San Francisco training program, which would begin in 1975".


The Esalen 1972 Workshop was Moshe's first significant teaching visit to the U.S. The participants included many of the leading people in the humanistic psychology movement, the atmosphere was lively and Moshe was highly engaged. The course took place over a five-week period and included 46 outstanding Awareness Through Movement lessons, each highly structured and suited for a 45 to 60 minute class. The lessons include versions of classic lessons not seen elsewhere and a range of powerful lessons unique to this setting. It is one of the most valuable teaching resources available to a professional Feldenkrais practitioner. Now for the first time (2015) we have the audio recordings of the Esalen seminar available to accompany the manuscript notes. The audio includes 3 lessons not included in the notes, bringing the total lessons to 46.
