Your body is filled with radiance, your heart is full of love and in every cell of your being there is a deep trust in the flow of Life.
Lawrence Phillips is an intuitive and highly skilled Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitionerï¿½ with over twenty-five years of experience. He was a member of the last group that personally trained with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. Lawrence has presented workshops and seminars for holistic, corporate, adult-learning, and body work centers.
Lawrence co-founded Princeton Mind/Body Associates, a ground-breaking coalition of practitioners of the medical and associated healing arts based in Princeton, New Jersey. He also co-founded a holistic studies center on the Philadelphia Mainline, and helped establish a wholesale natural-foods distribution company. His ability to inspire and support embodied transformation is an important part of his teaching work with his life-partner Myron McClellan. Together they educate clients and audiences about a wide variety of spiritual and physical practices that nurture a holistic awareness of body and spirit.
Lawrence's work is ideal for men and women who take pleasure in actively participating in their health and well-being, and those who are engaged in personal and spiritual growth.
Lawrence sees clients in private practice and speaks to groups about the ways to move beyond physical suffering to comfort, from unconscious living to conscious living in the body, and from imbalance to joyful and free movement. He teaches his clients to integrate thinking, feeling, sensing, and moving and to learn how to bring a deeper awareness to the body and its connection to Spirit.
Lawrence assists clients in increasing their flexibility, resilience, balance, and vitality by guiding them using the Feldenkrais Method. (Additional information is available at www.Feldenkrais.com.) The method provides a body focused, or somatic approach to overcoming the deeply ingrained habits of holding stress, and the improper posture and negative physical patterns that often create chronic back pain and a host of other functional disorders that can have an impact on physical and psychological health.
His work provides an important complement to the methodologies of psychotherapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and body workers of every kind, and is sought-out by clients who are dealing with illness, disease, and functional problems. The work is also very valuable to those who want to improve their already good health by becoming more skillful about how they care for their bodies, and more conscious about how emotions are experienced and processed in the body.
Lawrence often facilitates major breakthroughs with clients in a few sessions, but also enjoys the opportunity to help clients rebuild a fundamentally new way of holding and moving their bodies by working with them over a longer period of time. This establishes a strong foundation for a life-time of supported movement and provides the benefits described so beautifully by Dr. Feldenkrais as making the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy elegant.
