David Kaetz – a new book about listening

“My life has been blessed with music. It was through music that I first encountered the Feldenkrais Method®, and it was Feldenkrais that inspired me to write. These three streams—music, somatic education, and writing—have come together in a new and integrative approach to the hearing sense.”

Listening with Your Whole Body™

Better Hearing through the Somatic Experience of Sound

Developed and Taught by David Kaetz

“What can you do to improve your own hearing and listening?? How can you get more joy out of music, listen more effectively to others, and take better care of this precious window on the world?

As vision involves more than the eyes, listening involves more than the ears. Listening is integrated with movement, breath, attention, attitude, thought, emotion, context, relationship, and the other senses.Therefore, improving our awareness of how we hear and listen—with our whole selves—can set the stage for improvement.

Listening with your Whole Body is based on the Feldenkrais Method and other systemic approaches to self-organization, as well as insights from ancient and modern acoustical research, neuroscience, and a life in music.”

If you are in Canada, David Kaetz’s book

What participants are saying about David’s work:

“David is a born teacher. His listening work improves hearing function and resonates in multiple dimensions that bring us into a larger wholeness as we listen to ourselves and others.”
         –– Donna Blank, Feldenkrais Trainer, Bethesda, MD

“David combines his knowledge of Feldenkrais with musical, emotional, and psychological awareness. He creates an open, safe, and warm environment for each student.”
         –– Dena DeRose, Concert Artist, Prof. on Jazz Faculty. Graz, Austria

“Thank you so much for the wonderful experience of being at your workshop and for the indelible experience that I had there. I had previously considered myself unmusical. I have never before felt each and every note of music in such a profound deep way, as if I too were a creator of the notes.”
             –– M.I., psychotherapist, Victoria, British Columbia

“I feel like my skin is all ears.”
             –– M.L., musician, Victoria, B.C.

“After twenty years of professional experience as a classical violinist, the changes I’m experiencing are as welcome as they are unexpected. The new ways of listening have also transferred to my playing and I’ve never known such visceral pleasure in the physicality of the sound.”
           –– Participant in the Vienna workshop, 2015.

“With ease, playfulness and a beautiful sense of humour, David guides you on a journey to explore spaces in yourself you probably never visited before. In this workshop I experienced myself as a precious instrument.”
           –– Participant in the Vienna workshop, 2015.
