On Getting Good Grades and Flunking

A common challenge for students in Awareness Through Movement classes is that they try much harder than they need to. For a good reason too, they want to do a good job in class. They want to do it right.

I don't blame them. It's not their fault. 

I think we can point to our school system for why many of us have had the habits of working hard with excess effort, the need to get good grades and avoid mistakes. Our education and our response to our educators shapes our experience.

How has education shaped you?

On this episode you will hear...
- How humans are distinct from other creatures,
- My experience in education
- How Awareness Through Movement challenges our old habits in profound ways. What works in school won't work here.
- How Feldenkrais helps you steward your own self-education.
an encouragement to try flunking... 😁

I hope you enjoy the episode.
