Yes, this week I graduated from the Anat Baniel Methodsm Professional Training. There have been many changes over the past two and a half years and my life is so much better and richer because of the time I spent in this training. I’ve made lasting friendships with wonderful people. I can sit at my computer without pain. I can help other people.
As I move into life as an Anat Baniel Methodsm Practitioner, I’m also able to stretch my design skills by helping create websites for my new colleagues. I’m looking forward to developing an online presence for us and bringing this work to the world powerfully. (Anat had so many good ideas it’s going to take me a few days to sort out the best way to proceed. I’ll email everyone when I have the next step and more information. First opportunities will go to those who signed up at the last training).
Thank you all for enriching my life!
I learned about A Season for Non-Violence from James Twyman’s recent announcement of his 64 Days of Peace Concert Tour.
Here’s a little more about it from his site…
A Season for Nonviolence, January 30 – April 4, is a 64-day worldwide educational, media, and grassroots campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities.
Inspired by the 50th and 30th memorial anniversaries of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this international event was created by the Association for Global New Thought (www.agnt.org) and honors their vision for an empowered, nonviolent world.
Throughout the 64-day campaign, events and activities for peace and nonviolence take place all around the world, highlighting existing peace building initiatives and inspiring new year-round activities for a more peaceful, nonviolent just and sustainable world.

I received my official acceptance packet this weekend. I’ll start training with Anat Baniel this January. I’m very excited!
For those of you who know me only through my computer and web design work, I’ve also been doing bodywork for the past 15 years. The training schedule will allow my to continue with my current work load and will increase my ability to help my bodywork clients. If you work at a computer, I’d recommend looking at the Desk Trainer site and trying one of the free exercise lessons. This will give you a glimpse of the work I’m planning to learn.
As part of my student training, I’ll be looking for people to teach group Transformational Movement LessonsSM and hands on Functional SynthesisSM lessons. Let me know if you’re interested in being added to my list and I’ll keep you posted.
I was able to sit in on a class at the Anat Baniel Method of Feldenkrais Professional Training yesterday. I wanted to get a feel for the class and teaching and see if it was a fit for me. My interest in Feldenkrais training increases as I see the growth and work that Valerie is learning through her classes.
Anat’s teaching was beautiful to watch. Her movements graceful, present, and aware. I was able to speak to several students in the class and everyone had only good things to say about Anat, her work, and her classes. Many assured me I would be able to integrate Feldenkrais work with my current bodywork immediately. While I enjoy massage, I want to be able to facilitate more change and learning with my work.
Watching the class, I could see how this Method would be a great help with Aikido students. One of my goals for the past several years has been to help my fellow aikidoka to be more flexible and move more freely. We work on making movements without ‘muscling’ and I saw several examples of how this was possible in the work Anat is teaching.
I’m even more excited about this training after visiting this class. Since the classes are in nine day segments, it will only require a week off every few months. I will be able to continue with my regular work while attending classes.
Wish me luck on this journey.
As some of you know, I’ve been using Lifewave Energy Patches for some time now. They give me more stamina to get through the day and I notice a better mental clarity and balance too. All that without putting a single chemical into my body. Today, I opened my newest package of patches and found that the patches have been improved. They’re thinner, more flexible, and stick better than before.
