Leadership, courage, and hard work

Three years ago, Ohio-based Feldenkrais® teacher, Cynthia Allen, offered the first international Feldenkrais Awareness® Summit ever. Employing state-of-the-art software to bring together leading Feldenkrais teachers from all over to give presentations about the method and its many applications, she created a kind of virtual conference, one that allowed participants to learn about the method without having to leave home. 

That is no small feat. 

I speak from experience. It’s been more than a dozen years since I began exploring what’s officially known as “distance learning” and starting to learn about teaching classes online. It’s an incredibly time-consuming, challenging, and humbling experience. I mean, I thought I knew about struggle, disappointment, and heartache from my romantic life . . . then I met the Internet. I’ve never worked harder, failed so often, nor learned more. That’s why I’m so deeply impressed by — and appreciative of — Cynthia’s leadership, courage, and hard work.   

And, believe it or not, Cynthia and her team are at again! 

The first ten days of next month they’ll be putting on the third annual Feldenkrais Summit. This year’s summit is called Move Better, Feel Better (Affiliate link)*.

Not only is this the third year that Cynthia’s making this happen, but she continues to improve the technology behind the scenes and to provide more content and value to the participants. For instance, this year, the All-Access package includes audio recordings of the same Awareness Through Movement® lesson in 23 different languages. 

Twenty-three different languages! 

That blows me away. 

I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve been a part of in the 40+ years (since I started training) about the need to make the method better known. Cynthia’s not just talking the talk. She’s also walkin’ the walk; she’s making it happen. And she’s highlighting the accomplishments of colleagues — and engaging the participation of other folks — the world over.

(Being a nerd, I also love that this year everyone who decides to go for the paid pass gets the ability to use artificial intelligence to search the videos to find the content they’re looking for. How cool is that?)

Thank you for having the vision, taking the risk, dedicating yourself fully, bringing people together, and showing us what’s possible. Hats off to you, Cynthia!
