Guest: Emily deSchweinitz Taylor, conflict mediator, Author of Raising Mediators You’re going to be with a lot of family and friends at holiday gatherings in the next couple of weeks. And maybe you’re dreading what will happen when your uncle brings up that politician you disagree with, or your mother-in-law starts giving you parenting advice. A lot of us are in the habit of walking away from those conversations just to keep the peace...maybe hiding out fora bit and venting on Facebook, right? But what if you didn’t walk away? What if there were a way to have that disagreement without ending in hurt feelings or broken dishes? (Originally aired 12/13/18).

Feldenkrais Method

Guest: Marek Wyszynski, Physical Therapist and Co-Founder of the Feldenkrais Institute of New York We humans are rough on our bodies. We pound and strain for fitness, power through discomfort and bounce to force a deeper stretch in a stiff muscle. When something is out of whack, we’ll get a deep massage that makes us wince, or have a chiropractor crack us back into alignment. The Feldenkrais Method does none of that. Its devotees include professional athletes and concert musicians and lots of regular people who experience chronic pain. If you stumbled on a class –or a video online –of people doing Feldenkrais exercises, you’re bound to be a bit stumped. All these people moving their limbs so gently and so slowly –that’s helping how exactly? (Originally aired 1/23/19).
