Shouldering the Load begins Friday 10/28

October 27, 2011

Way back in the day, when I developed this series, I couldn’t have imagined how deeply the metaphor, Shouldering the Load, would fit. In fact, some days I look around and wonder how we humans get up in the morning and go to work and keep a sense of okay-ness with ourselves, let alone with others. Considering current events all around the planet, it’s getting harder and harder to do just that.

According to Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies, an excellent TED Talk, when there is a greater disparity between the haves and the have-nots, there is less trust and more illness and difficulties of every kind all throughout that culture. The United States ranks pretty high on the economic inequality, though it varies state by state, so it makes complete sense we’ve been feeling a heavier load as the days go by.

Thus, I’m even more inspired to share with you this Shouldering the Load, Feldenkrais lesson series that can help you smooth out your own personal ups and downs, connect your whole self into one moment, and gain fluidity and resilience to thrive another day. You need no prior experience, just your watchful senses and your motivation to live your fullest.

I’ve learned that if we return to our loved ones at the end of the day with enough energy to make the transition from public world to personal world still within us, we build and sustain more satisfying relationships. Satisfying relationships are what make it worth the time spent lying on the floor, even for 10 minutes.

So, for you, for your loved ones, for your future . . .
