MOVE: Taiji, Feldenkrais® & Movement Intelligence
Lessons and daily practice develop our skill in moving through unusual circumstances.

FOCUS: Helpful in extreme situations, such as disasters or traumatic injury or aging, we learn Focusing as developed by Eugene Gendlin and taught worldwide.

PREPARE: Preparing for and adapting to the Current Pandemic, Earthquakes on the Cascadia coast & Preparing for Hurricanes on the Atlantic coast or in Europe our project grows step by step.

Weaving together steps for preparedness – we cultivate trust in also being prepared for an earthquake on the Cascadia Pacific coast of North America and Canada

Each week we begin with a review of previous lessons in the series, then you will learn one new lesson with reflections and applications to preparedness.

We consider Psychological First Aid (PFA) as an element of preparedness as well as support during and after a disaster.  Psychological First Aid (PFA) is fostered by the World Health Organization (WHO):
 “humane, supportive and practical help to people impacted by serious crisis events and disasters”  
PFA gives a framework for supporting people in ways that respect their dignity, culture, and abilities.”

Feldenkrais & Taiji share several principles: combining these practices in our workshop will provide a bird’s eye view of how they enhance each other.

The Symbol of Taiji
The yin yang symbol of two teardrops creates the sense of movement. The left side of the circle is filled with the white teardrop with its bulb at the top as though it is ascending. The black teardrop descends with the bulb shape located at the bottom of the circle. This creates the illusion of a clockwise movement.
