A victim of debilitating injuries, Moshe Feldenkrais was intimately aware of the link between bodily suffering and mental health. Through healing himself, he made revolutionary discoveries, culminating in the development of the method that now bears his name. In an intellectually rich and eloquent style, Feldenkrais delves into neurology, prehistory, child development, gravity and anti-gravity, reflexive versus learned behavior, the effects of emotion, especially anxiety, on posture, and most importantly, the inseparability of body and mind.


"Of all his books, it [Body and Mature Behavior] remains the most succinct statement of his fundamental theory: A 'whole situation,' systems view of physical movement, thought, emotion, sensation, and environment."- Mark Reese, author of a soon-to-be-published biography of Feldenkrais and co-author of Relaxercise"Body & Mature Behavior powerfully presents Moshe Feldenkrais’s masterful genius in integrating body and mind, theory and practice, nature and culture, freedom and constraint."- Richard Shusterman, professor of philosophy at Florida Atlantic University and author of Performing Live"Body & Mature Behavior is a seminal work of creative thinking in which Feldenkrais articulates the philosophical underpinnings for the development of his extraordinary approach to human growth and learning, now known as the Feldenkrais Method."- Jim Stephens PhD, PT, CFP, member of physical therapy faculty at Temple University
