In 1981, during his last year of teaching, Moshe Feldenkrais developed what he called his "greatest invention:" the 'bell hand' lessons. They are brilliant and involve small, slow movements -of opening and closing the hands- to change the state of the autonomic nervous system. The bell hand movements are a testament to Feldenkrais' genius, knowledge, and creativity, and they have unique potential. 

David Zemach-Bersin has dreamed of this workshop for many years. He is excited to explore and expand upon the bell hand lessons in a two-day, online, Advanced Awareness Through Movement Workshop for Feldenkrais Practitioners. Please join us to experience the bell hand movements, explore them from functional and neurological points of view, and learn how to integrate them with larger, more complex functions in new orientations.

“In this workshop, we explored bell hand lessons, including obscure lessons taught by Moshe and lessons I've developed over the last forty-five years.” 

-David Zemach-Bersin

Each participant will receive lifetime access to the workshop recordings. If you’d like a more interactive experience, we invite you to attend the workshops live, online! A team of Assistant Teachers and tech support staff are available during the live events to help answer your questions in real-time.

"David's teaching has rejuvenated my understanding and practice of our wonderful Method. His influence has caused my teaching of ATM and FI to become more elegant and effective-- no small thing for this practitioner of thirty years' standing! ”

-Alan Fraser, Hawaii '92
