How to Teach the Unteachable

How to Teach the Unteachable

A friend of ours is doing some important work, teaching people to form a better relationship with stress, food, and health. And she wrote recently about hitting a wall. Sometimes what we see in the people we try to help isn't what they see in themselves. Sometimes what they see is that how they are is how they are. Not working. Not healthy. Not feeling so good. But not changeable. That's just how I am. It's something we all run into so much - with friends, family, people we work with, even in different parts of our selves. What do…
The Values We Share

The Values We Share

Community is everything. Tara and I are about to begin our course in Amsterdam, and we're thinking of everyone coming together to share this experience. We're lucky to have people from so wide a range of backgrounds and experience - beginners and long-time practicers, teachers of all styles, people looking to run faster or strengthen their game, perform better at work, heal what needs healing, and just all-around feel amazing. The diversity makes good ground for learning from each other. We look different, speak different languages, come from different places, work different jobs. And we're all in this community together,…
Guiding Strala – Foreword by Dr. Rudolph Tanzi

Guiding Strala – Foreword by Dr. Rudolph Tanzi

In 2017 we published the training manual which accompanies our longer courses.  We wanted to share this with everybody! Dr. Rudolph Tanzi - Harvard Professor of Neurology and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital - wrote the foreword.  He's doing amazing work, and it's wonderful to hear everything he has to say.  I'll copy some for you below, that he wrote about his work and our program. - In the last 20 years, we’ve made some astonishing discoveries. We know now that our neurological make up is dynamic and plastic, every day recreated in response to…
A Practice that Makes it Easier to be Here

A Practice that Makes it Easier to be Here

Approaching the mind through the mind can be pretty tough. Especially when things get challenging. So we can go through our body, first. And we need something more. Something that combines the simplicity of meditation with the energy of movement. Here's a practice for this. It's not yoga or tai chi, qi gong or traditional healing. It might use these forms, but it's not a form. It's just you, arising out of you. Which is what we're doing here. - Practice Being Here Begin wherever you're comfortable, right now. It can be sitting or standing, lying down or on hands and…
How You Do What You Do

How You Do What You Do

Life might hurt sometimes, but it can just as easily heal.   Your ability to heal, and to do everything, is all in how you do what you do.   Let's talk about wrists to start. But leave them be for a moment, it's sometimes best not to attack challenges head-on. First, connect your body and breath together as the same thing. Let each inhale lift you a little out of where you are, and put a little extra strength through your whole body. And let each exhale soften you a bit, and make it a little easier to be where…
Responsive Movement and Miracles

Responsive Movement and Miracles

Your body works miracles for you all the time.  Occasionally it needs your help. Mostly this help comes when we slow down, tune in, and support our bodies to do what they do best.  It's not so much fixing or correcting or manipulating that we need - from ourselves or anyone else.  Sometimes the help we need is simply in opening the conversation with our bodies, and forming a positive connection that allows us to respond in some simple ways. Remember that much more than what moves or poses you do to target this or that problem area, it's using your breath…
