#3.3 Productive Meeting Models
Productive meaning in this context: Productivity is a philosophy of life, a state of mind. Being efficient means doing, at every moment, what we consciously choose to do and not what we feel we are doing forced by circumstances. Productivity means adopting an attitude for continued improvement.
A productive meeting pattern using the techniques of Awareness through Speaking and Listening Models engages each participant and ensures their words are vocalized and included into the meetings objectives. If each participant is recognized there is more probably of the meeting agreements to be carried out with more accuracy and with attention to details. It is the difference of having to do something as one is being told and doing it because one is engaged and in agreement.
#4. Awareness of Movement
Functional Movement Practitioner & Teacher
Certified Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Movement & Integration
Feldenkrais® is a system for learning new actions through movement to increase ones function and quality of life. There is no dogma or self-image attached to this system of independent stye of self-learning. What this means is that it introduces direct experience with a focus upon what you can do, not what you can’t or what you think. Feldenkrais® reduces limiting beliefs by increasing focus of attention in the the present moment. As an empath I can trust the Feldenkrais® experience to deepen my inner connection through a developing pattern of sensory perception. This sensory perception has a focus of attention on skeletal and functional support. This is the same inner support that I trusted to take chances to begin balancing as a baby to get up and begin talking my first step.
The only way to transformation is through a new action.
Two ways one can explore the Feldenkrais Method is through Function Integration or Awareness through Movement Lessons.
1. Functional Integration (FI) – Sessions for individuals
These are personalized lessons and are especially suited for those who have specific movement difficulties or performance improvement issues that would benefit from individual attention. A Feldenkrais® Practitioner guides you personally through patterns of movement to enhance range of motion and increase the moving parts in function.
2 Awareness through Movement® (ATM) – Group Classes
Awareness through Movement lessons are group classes that guide individuals through patterns of movement with a focus on a particular function using spoken word.
In both ATM and FI lessons, you will become more aware of how you move in habitual ways. Each lesson helps you to explore alternatives that you might not have thought of otherwise. Through increased awareness, you learn to move with minimal effort and maximum efficiency.
