    The 2015 South West / Rocky Mountain Regional Advanced Feldenkrais Training and Meeting.

    April 24-26, 2015 • First Time Presented in the US

    Sigmund Freud traveled "the royal road to the unconscious" through dreams and direct questioning. Moshe Feldenkrais observed how movement and sensation can access a similar place. Working with this new "royal road", Feldenkrais anticipated discoveries in neuroscience that were generations ahead of his time. Now, in a unique training, Frank Wildman combines these varied understandings of the brain and its capacity for change.

    "Mind, the unconscious, and will are functions; they have no existence before action has taken place."
    - Moshe Feldenkrais,
    The Potent Self

    In neuroscience and cognitive science, there are two views of the brain: the 'dry view', as though the brain was a supercomputer quantifiable through electrical impulses, and the 'wet view', a more fluid vision of a biological entity, a vast collection of neurotransmitters intimately integrated with the body. In this training, Frank Wildman will expand on the wet view, which is more congruent with Moshe's integrated understanding of the body-mind.

    Frank has developed Awareness Through Movement® and Functional Integration® lessons to help you find ways to sense, learn, and teach in the context of emerging brain research. By understanding the history of Freud's road to the subconscious and subsequent shifts in the science and philosophy of the mind, you can deepen and empower your interactions with clients.
