When we use ourselves in a more embodied way, we expand our self-image. We learn to sense ourselves more clearly, to listen to ourselves, and to calibrate our senses, so that we know what we feel, think, need, and want. We develop this through experiential learning, so there is depth to our understanding. This allows us to have confidence in the truth of our words and actions, to trust ourselves, and to be more authentic and vulnerable. It takes away anyone else's power to tell us what to do or to make us feel bad about ourselves. We develop a deep trust in our body and our nervous system's ability to take care of us and to choose the best (most efficient) option. We begin to feel more comfortable in our bodies and with ourselves and to connect better with others and with the world. The Feldenkrais Method uses movement as a tool for learning, because movement is easily observed and manipulated. Since every action is comprised of thinking, feeling, sensing, and acting, it affects much more than our movement.
