Hadaka-Jime: The Core Technique for Practical Unarmed Combat
Hadaka-Jime: The Core Technique for Practical Unarmed
Hadaka-Jime: Practical Unarmed Combat is a unique training program that is based on one core technique. Dr. Feldenkrais developed the program as emergency training for soldiers in World War II. Through ten one-hour lessons, soldiers learned to defend themselves against an armed opponent in the most rapid and effective way possible. The program is based on one Judo technique. Feldenkrais emphasized concepts of the learning process throughout the book. He encouraged the reader to maintain a relaxed attitude, to start with slow and precise movements as he explained the timing, and to master the movements by repetition. The result would be a spontaneous movement which was correct and precise. He claimed that a fighter must first acquire the ability and then put it to practical use. Thus, the first three lessons teach the core technique, Hadaka-Jime. The remaining lessons implement the technique in a variety of situations against armed or unarmed attacks from different directions all of which culminate in the use of the core technique. This approach deepens the learning so that the fighter can effectively perform the core technique with many alternatives to survive the situation.

Esalen 1972 Workshop
The Esalen 1972 Workshop was Dr. Feldenkrais’s first significant teaching visit to the U.S. and a pivotal moment in the development of his work. The course took place over five weeks and the participants included many of the leading people in the humanistic psychology movement, adding a distinct quality and excitement to Feldenkrais’s explanations and teaching. This new edition of the notes is bound and reformatted with an extensive introduction by David Zemach-Bersin. From the introduction: “At Esalen, Feldenkrais… was able to direct himself to one, consistent group of highly engaged students, and had the opportunity to ‘start at the beginning’, following a path of both developmental and intellectual continuity, putting his thinking into action. And, that is exactly what he did.” The 43 lessons include a variety of different types of lessons from variations on classics to unusual or challenging lessons seen nowhere else. Teachers will find this an excellent resource for ATM teaching and inspiration.

25 Lessons from Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation
25 Lessons from Eshkol-Wachman Movement
Dr. Feldenkrais taught these 25 ATM lessons at Hakibbutzim Teacher’s Training College, School of Physical Education, in Tel-Aviv. With the inspiration of Moshe’s close friend Noa Eshkol, the lessons were carefully transcribed into the Eshkol-Wachman movement notation system and published in Israel. Jack Heggie, an experienced practitioner with an engineering background, translated the lessons from the notation into English. The result is a unique document in which the skeleton of the lesson is crisply and clearly described with virtually no commentary. These unique and often challenging lessons were not part of the Alexander Yanai classes.

The Elusive Obvious: The Convergence of Movement, Neuroplasticity, and Health
The Elusive Obvious: The Convergence of Movement, Neuroplasticity,
Scientist, martial artist, and founder of the method that bears his name, Moshe Feldenkrais wrote several influential books on the relationship between movement, learning, and health. In The Elusive Obvious he presents ideas that are more relevant today than when the book was first published, as current research strongly supports many of the insights on which the Feldenkrais Method is based. This beautiful new edition is ready to be treasured by an emerging generation of somatic practitioners, movement teachers, performing artists, and anyone interested in self-improvement and healing. The two main strands of the Feldenkrais Method—Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration—are now known by many around the world for reducing pain and anxiety, cultivating vitality, and improving performance. The Elusive Obvious presents a thorough and accessible explanation of the Feldenkrais Method, and, as its title indicates, throws light on the solutions to many of our difficulties that are hidden in plain sight.

This Naked Mind: Control Alcohol, Find Freedom, Discover
This Naked Mind has ignited a movement across the country, helping thousands of people forever change their relationship with alcohol. Many people question whether drinking has become too big a part of their lives, and worry that it may even be affecting their health.

This Naked Mind offers a new, positive solution. Here, Annie Grace clearly presents the psychological and neurological components of alcohol use based on the latest science, and reveals the cultural, social, and industry factors that support alcohol dependence in all of us. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, this book will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture, and how the stigma of alcoholism and recovery keeps people from getting the help they need.

It removes the psychological dependence so that you will not crave alcohol, allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). With clarity, humor, and a unique blend of scie...

My Feldenkrais Book [2nd edition] - How to
A wonderful book about the FELDENKRAIS® Method which works very well for people who have never heard of it. This book shows the important aspects that people need to know. It really helps to understand how and why the FELDENKRAIS® Method is different from other modalities. It shows how intelligently designed, effective and unique this method is. Plus, the book works equally well for people who know and have experienced the FELDENKRAIS® Method before. People really like this book. Everyone says the book is fun, interesting, and easy to read and use. People love the pictures and the bubbles on the pictures. The book is great to show to friends and relatives and to explain what it is that people doing FELDENKRAIS® are doing, rather than having to describe and explain. You can just hand over the book and say „Look, this is what I am doing!” *with a smile* The book appeals to all types of people, all age groups and backgrounds. Even though the pictures show young, healthy looking people doing FELDENKRAIS® lessons, older students and people with physical limitations like it just as much. The book is contemporary, user-friendly, has a high quality feel and look, and although it is small it is packed with info. It's a great resource.

Embodied Wisdom: The Collected Papers of Moshe Feldenkrais
Embodied Wisdom: The Collected Papers of Moshe
An educational system of neuromuscular re-education known for its gentle approach, the Feldenkrais Method has been shown to dramatically improve individual functioning by increasing self-awareness and facilitating new patterns of thinking, moving, and feeling. Intended for those who need to improve their movement repertoire for professional reasons–-dancers, musicians, martial artists, gymnasts, and athletes–-as well as those wishing to reduce pain or limitations in movement, Feldenkrais is based on the idea that learning to move better can improve anyone’s overall health on many levels.Using Moshe Feldenkrais’s own words, Embodied Wisdom clearly explains the basic principles underpinning his techniques, Awareness Through Movement (ATM) and Functional Integration (FI). These thoughtful articles and lively, sometimes humorous interviews explore a diverse range of subjects: the importance of bodily expression, the primacy of hearing, the mind-body connection, martial arts, sleep and consciousness, movement and its effect on the mind. Embodied Wisdom gives readers the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the scientific and spiritual principles behind the Method and offers sound strategies for incorporating it into their lives.
