Election Day in the United States is this coming Tuesday, 3 November 2020.
Given the intensity of the news coverage worldwide, I’m guessing you probably know that already. I’m pretty sure you’re also familiar with who is running for President and with all the controversy swirling around the choices and the process of voting this year.
It seems quite crazy out there, doesn’t it?
My plan for maintaining some semblance of serenity and at least a modicum of sanity during the days leading up to the election and afterward is to continue doing Awareness Through Movement® lessons.
No surprise there.
This is pretty much my plan, no matter what. That’s what it means to have a practice: engaging in this regular and consistent activity to improve my mental and physical health and foster my ongoing personal development. It is what helps me keep my feet on the ground and my breathing easy.
In honor of the ballot and recognition of the trying times we’re all going through, I recorded two special Awareness Through Movement® classes last month during the Autumn 2020 LGBTQA Feldenkrais® Festival. (If you’re wondering, the “A” stands for “ally.”)
A biannual online event, the Festival is the creation of my NYC-based colleague Frederick Schjang. The Edie Windsor SAGE LGBT Elder Center and the NY Region of the Feldenkrais Guild® of North America sponsor this incredible, inclusive worldwide teach-in.The unedited audio recordings of my live, light-hearted ATM classes are now available, free of charge, for your listening and learning pleasure.
You’ll find them on the Mind in Motion Online (MIMO) website. Each class features a contemporary version of a classic Feldenkrais® lesson. So you know, the first one is done sitting in a chair and the second one lying on your back. Both are easy lessons, and neither requires any previous experience.
One more thing: Democracy is about participation and action. If you are eligible to vote and you haven’t cast your ballot yet, please do so soon!
