As for this book, Body and Mature Behavior, two things stand out to me. First, this is h Back in September, I set out on a personal mission to read the entire corpus of Dr. First, this is his most scientific and technical book in fact, it was based on a lecture series he gave to a group of scientists in Britain in the s. Second, this being his first book on what would become The Feldenkrais Method, many of his ideas are not as developed or clearly explained as they are in later works.

Well ahead of certain ideas about neuroplasticity and biofeedback, Feldenkrais demonstrated here that while many of our postural muscles are controlled by reflex, some are not — and therefore our attitude even dimly conscious ones can affect our posture.

Furthermore, because we are animals, nervous responses can be conditioned and reconditioned to something more optimal or appropriate to our task — including our posture and ways of moving and interacting in the world. Feldenkrais writes with a fundamental belief in humanity and human achievement, by the best means possible.

He applies his readings in physiology, psychology, and hypnotism to their logical consequences — that negative patterns of behavior, in the whole soma and sensorium, cannot resolve fully with psychoanalysis alone; the overall improvement of bodily function and motor habits is needed.

Any human function which is not fully mature gives us room for improvement, coupled with the biological possibility — thanks to how plastic our nervous systems are — that maturity is possible. Do you move without pain, or better, with grace? Do you find that there is a sense of comfortable self-assuredness in what you do? If not, then more learning is possible and there is work to be done! Like all of his writings, I found this book brimming with a deep hope in what we can be.

As both the performer and the person with a disability, I found his book to be very empowering, while still grounded in science and sound reasoning. They are an acquired result of a learned mode of doing.
