InTouch with the Brain – Right and Left Hemispheres


The theory of the  minds function suggests that the two different sides of the brain control two different “modes” of thinking.  It also suggests that each of us prefers one mode over the other.

Qualities of the Right Hemisphere

Integration of Body, Mind & Spatial Awareness


A  participant in our ” Listen to Hear and Speak to be Heard Workshops,”   was excited to share a book she was reading by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D.’s book, My Stroke of Insight.

Reading it, I too became excited about the connections to the Intouch Empathy focus and body movement integration offered through Feldenkrais.

Here is a video by Dr. Taylor:
