2023 Somatic Movement Summit
Program & Replays
A “Neuro-Conscious” Taste for Beauty in Our Dance of Life
Paul Pui Wo Lee discusses what happens if we get trapped living in the loop of what we don't know. Feldenkrais helps a person learn their hidden individual possibilities through experiencing. He explores how much artistry, taste, and flavor we can cultivate in our human experience to understand how to co-create a more hospitable culture and society for people.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- A short Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lesson to illustrate what learning through experiencing actually means
- The nervous system's ability to continue learning is our salvation, and can inform more “neuro-conscious” educational systems
- The more cultivated we are to shift, the more artistry, style, and assuredness we have in our balancing through the circumstances
