 “… so, and they were knitting something and the wool actually was already undone and made into a ball like they do for knitting, and the ball is rolling on the floor. He was reading, Brehm, himself was reading a paper, and his wife was knitting and they had a big Great Dane. Suddenly, reading the paper like that, he saw the Dane lying in front of him, and looking at him so intently, with such a brilliant kind of expression, that he (Brehm) became aware of it in spite of reading the paper. He took a look at the dog—he couldn’t understand—and then he heard his wife say, “Look, the wool disappeared. Where is the wool?” And he didn’t know what to say. He looked at the dog, and then, when she turned away looking for the wool, the dog who lay there, opened (his mouth) and showed him that he had the wool in his mouth, closed it again. “

Moshe’s Story from
Talk—Change Only in Action / Arguments for/Against Change
IFF transcript of Amherst Traiinnig Year 2, Week 1, Day 1, 8 June 1981, Page 11 of 37
Morning Session Tape #1

Moshe continues with his story of reading Brehm’s Introduction to The Life of Animals over and over during his childhood.  The pictures and stories of animals … 

In this talk Moshe speaks of Functional Integration® as melody common to both teacher and student.  Included is his story of an FI demo ending in waltzing.

“But there is no limit to improvement”: Week 1, 8 June 1981, Page 12 of 37

“somebody who is only experienced eight years or something—therefore, by a long stretch, unable to do what I am doing, but yet she was able to make me further my own improvement in a way, which by myself, may have taken much longer. I would need hours or days of work on myself to achieve the same thing” Week 1, 8 June 1981, Page 12 of 37

Moshe refers to “The Elusive Obvious” during the Amherst Training 

Here is Jeff Haller / Inside Moves talk on Feldenkrais and Emotions from January 8, 2018.

A note from Jeff: “The neurophysiological principles I was talking about are discussed quite thoroughly in the workshop that I did with Roger Russell called Feldenkrais and the Brain. https://www.insidemoves.org/Store/11202/3/20/. Roger condenses his 40 years of academic studies and I give ATM and FI practices to elucidate attentional loops, the prefrontal cortex, excitation and inhibition, etc.”
