For Feldenkrais Practitioners

Amherst Study Groups

You can now listen to the stories and apparent ramblings of Moshe … and search for yourself for the relationships between those ’talks’ and the ATM lessons, while glimpsing into the ‘soul’ of the man who presents them”

The Amherst training program dvds and transcripts give us the opportunity to learn directly from Moshe.

Most of us were trained by someone who relayed what they heard and understood from Moshe, or from someone a step further removed.

In a small group take the time to study what Moshe actually did and said at Amherst, for yourself. Share your thoughts and be informed by others’ perspectives.

I’ve made a special effort to maximise the clarity of the sound, especially by minimising the hiss and echo usually heard when Amherst dvds are played. Participants have commented as being ‘surprisingly good’ or ‘really easy to hear’.

I have 2 copies of the transcripts available for use during sessions, which some people find useful to read as Moshe speaks. And I highly recommend buying your own copy of the transcript so you can read between sessions and continue to clarify ideas for yourself.

Here you will find the essential ingredients of his Method and the primary ideas that were stressed as the necessary background for learning his work.”
