Keywords:corporeality, experiential process, presence, Feldenkrais Method, Feldenkrais' perspectives, nervous system, skills development, learning
The Feldenkrais Method introduces a revisited understanding of what body inscription can do in the fields of learning, re-learning, and remediation of capacities, in particular by stimulating the plasticity of the nervous system and by promoting the training and reactivation of our perfectibility. The Feldenkrais Method can help to clarify or reconsider what corporeality can do in this project of possible and continued learning.
How can the Feldenkrais Method support such a purpose of quality and accuracy in our action by the means of a learning process that involves, and often is based on, a person's ability to move? What does this tell us about the way human beings develop and learn?
This contribution seeks to highlight modalities at work in the Feldenkrais Method, described as a process that favors precise, adapted action, or allows the freedom necessary for the realization of any human project, with in particular emphasis on the learning component of our projects.
