“Once more efficient neurological pathways are awakened, based on the natural genetic tendencies toward protection, survival, growth, and development, the response of the body will naturally gravitate to the most adaptive and efficient functioning. ” Dr. Svetlana Masgutova

How can we recognize parasitic actions that we may have adopted from our development?
Behaviors and identifications that may have served us in our early attempts to make contact and remain connected within our families of origin while we were, indeed, dependent. The unnecessary use of ourself which colludes intent to actualization. How do we recover our connection with our own life force.? Our will. Fully reconnecting with our independent, autonomous healthy self and orienting from this. One action. One movement. All “parts” integrated. Connection with the breath. Moving with this integration and becoming habituated to this, often novel to us, state.
Each time we retrieve an old memory, we can modify it by integrating new information into it. (Dudai, 2004; Sara, 2000; Wang and Morris, 2010) Knowledge and understanding of the neuroplasticity of the self image is our license to adapt, adjust, and modify our identity into wholeness capable of executing intention to action without collusion or dampening from unintegrated parts. Through accessing movement patterns which exhibit high functionality, we can begin to expand into integrating all parts of ourselves. Integrating with the intention towards a sense of wholeness through expanded movement options.
The Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education is a distinct profession based on the principles spelled out in the International Feldenkrais® Standards of Practice. This unique system uses movement and attention to bring about increased awareness and improved functioning through learning. Feldenkrais practitioners help their students to become aware of existing patterns of action, and guide the discovery of additional possibilities for action. The Feldenkrais Method facilitates recovery of movement. Amaleah is a graduate of Semiophysics Institute, student of the late Dennis Leri, Mark Reese, and Esther Thelen.
A gentle, movement-based approach for learning which provides the student appropriate sensory motor experiences that will allow them to feel movement and control that they may not be able to on their own. This natural approach affords the individual the chance to realize their own ability to learn, move and improve.
Distinction between High Stress and Trauma per Dr.
Professor Franz Ruppert:
High stress is a highly mobilized state with the reaction of ‘fight or flight’. This is easily understandable in the sense that in order to fight or run away in the face of threat we do need enormous amounts of energy, so the psychophysical system secretes strong energizing chemicals to support this reaction. High stress is just that; not the daily stress of life, but the stress of an extremely stressful situation; we can think of it as the highest stress we can manage as a limited psychophysical being.
Trauma on the other hand is a state of collapse, of resignation, an extremely low-energy state where the psychophysical organism has shut off all energizing secretions in order to maintain as best it can it’s existence. It comes into play when the high stress strategy fails; fight or flight has not been possible, and the person is completely and utterly helpless.
“The aim [of the Feldenkrais Method] is a person that is organized to move with minimum effort and maximum efficiency, not through muscular strength, but through increased consciousness of how movement works.”
