The Miracle of Neuroplasticity with Mischul Brownstone

The Miracle of Neuroplasticity with Mischul Brownstone: Tuesday 6/2 at 7:00 p.m.-

Neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to change itself, is the emerging new paradigm in neuroscience. It shows how we can learn and heal in ways not considered possible by traditional science and medicine until recently. Norman Doidge’s eminently readable The Brain’s Way of Healing, lucidly describes how neuroplastic healing works. Moshe Feldenkrais, one of neuroplasticity’s pioneers (described in the book), used movement to affect changes in the brain and the body. In addition to exploring the general principles of neuroplasticity we will do some simple movements from the Feldenkrais Method, while sitting and standing, illustrating how slow, gentle, small movements can improve our flexibility in just a few minutes. Mischul Brownstone, Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner (1983) has been studying the mind-body connection for 45 years and trained with Moshe Feldenkrais.
