What is Health?

We deal here with health and not with disease. This is what Moshe Feldenkrais told the students of his training program back in 1980. Feldenkrais offers a two part definition of health and I think it's a big reason the Feldenkrais Method is so compelling for practitioners and long time students of the work.

In this episode you will hear:
- some inadequate definitions of health
- health is your ability to recover from shocks
- how shocks and traumas relate
- health is the ability to pursue the dream that's within you
- reflection questions
